Kids show high engagement and resilience in games. In fact, research shows students can read grade levels above what they normally measure when reading text in a game. Learn the core ingredients that make game-based learning and gamification elements work. These elements are especially useful in home school environments where students are more self-reliant. Game design is a powerful tool for increasing self-motivation. Leave the workshop able to create and evaluate how game dynamics and existing free tools can work with your own family learning setting. Explore the role of a playful narrative, like recasting learning itself as a hero's journey, narrative being the most useful game dynamic in creating magical homeschool experiences.
