We are two teachers who have been gamifying our classrooms to increase student engagement, and it has forever changed the way that we teach. We have modeled our teaching styles after the popular video games and movies that many of the kids are playing and viewing these days. Students roleplay various characters, develop on skills tree, fight monsters, and complete challenging missions. The results have been tremendous. Student engagement, and learning is off the charts.

You just have to be a passionate educator.
