Are you Gameful? Understanding (and Improving) Student Academic Engagement 
Dr. Barry J. Fishman, University of Michigan
The first step in any learning endeavor is engagement. If your students are not engaged, learning is not possible. Gameful Learning is a practical pedagogical approach that you can use to enhance learner engagement. Being gameful means leveraging our best knowledge about student motivation, and is closely tied to cutting edge ideas such as personalized learning, outcomes-based and standards-based learning, and digital credentials. This talk introduces core concepts for making education more gameful, and a tool called GradeCraft designed to support gameful teaching.
