Encourage webinar participation through gamification


Published on

These are slides from a Professional Development webinar on 'Hints and Tips for Mobile Learning'. Participation was encouraged by allocating points per individual which then were added up as a group (NSW vs QLD). Points were offered for creative thinking, skills, experience and participation.

Published in: Education, Technology
  • I explained the system and asked each person to follow an honesty system and record their own points. I also appointed a team captain to tally the points at the end so we could declare a winning team. I asked for feedback and it was well received. They enjoyed experiencing gamification rather than just reading about it.

Personal reflections implementing mLearning • My classroom has weak wi-fi and 3g, especially when ten people do an activity • Class owned tablets batteries go flat when not in use • Synching of large files (video) takes up learners’ bandwidth and data usage • Some learners still just don’t want to put the effort in • Difficult for some learners to share audio files and photos from devices
  16. 16. Nat’s Tips • Mini tablets are affordable and good size (Google Nexus 7” $299) • Learners love it – after an initial warming up “I want one” • Powerpoint / Presenter, PDF’s and Google Docs are good tools for scalable layouts • Try mobile yourself – it is easier than desktop computing, removes barriers to eLearning (What times are movies on? Is the flight late? Just in time info/ learning)
