Come discover five secrets that make games addictive, and learn about specific ways that you can use game dynamics in your classroom to engage learners. In this session, I will use video interviews with students, gameplay videos, and examples from many current games that kids play to demonstrate what game designers know about tutorials, learning, and scaffolding of content. I will also present an overview of the concept of gamification, and why it is so effective at changing behavior.
