E105 - PD That Motivates! Gamification of Teacher Technology Integration

3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Bonsai (Portola Hotel)
Brooke Carey Ahrens, Instructional Technology Coordinator, Notre Dame High School
Melanie Duffin, Technology, Engineering and Design Department Chair, Notre Dame San Jose

Presenters Ahrens and Duffin motivated their teachers to use technology through gamification. Their badge reward system, focused on technology integration and skill expansion, created an environment of self-motivation, excitement, and friendly competition, encouraging teachers to build their technology skills and incorporate the use of technology in their instruction through gamification. Hear how they created interest and buy-in schoolwide by including both faculty and staff in their program and carefully designing the criteria for earning badges to be inclusive of all community members.
