Applying #gamification to a class will always be a good challenge. It doesn’t matter how good a Dungeon Master you are, you will always find it more challenging that you accounted for.

I hope that this 10 tips on how NOT to gamify a classroom will help teachers out there to simplify the task a bit, know some insights from the battlefield and will successfully reach a gamified system faster than I had to.

This keynote was presented during Gamification Europe in November 28th-29th 2017 in Brighton U.K.

I’m the evil mind behind the operation @bluerabbit, a gamification platform for education. I also developed three frameworks to teach/learn how to create gamification systems and build gamified content at the BLUErabbit Gamification Academy

Right now we are developing BLUErabbit as a MOCC aside from all the original functions to transform the educational system.

I have declared a world wide war on grades.
