So how do you follow up an epic experience of bring the amazing people of #sstlap together for a GHO conversation on gamification? Well if you are me, you spend hours creating video questions for the chat you co-moderate on Tuesday the following week and completely fail to deliver on brining your A game for #sstlap. Yeah I am owning my failure. Here are the questions and corresponding videos from the other chat.
I apologize for not delivering a knock out performance, but hope that tonight will still deliver a great conversation.
Questions are below.
We might like to be as smart as Ken Jennings, or the Human Google Brad Williams from Wisconsin! However we don’t all have the mental capacity to remember vast amounts of information, nor do our students. In lesson and assessment design, how do you balance information mastery (facts) with analysis and application of information? #sstlap
Q2 Visual creation = learning!
Looking at the following example, what content could you apply this too, and what would you do to create an experience like this for your students? Fetal Pig Journal #sstlap

Last week we did a GHO and discussed Gamification with Michael Matera. The concept is incorporating game elements into your classroom. These include competition, side quests or activities that provide greater opportunities for learning, XP or experience points and so much more.
How can you incorporate some of these elements into your existing curriculum? What lessons might this be a great fit for? #sstlap

Q7 Telephone Game!
Who have you shared the #tlap message with this year? How have you shared these ideas? How has this impacted the teacher and the students? #sstlap
