What motivates you to use GBL strategies in the classroom?
My name is Erica Holan. I'm currently a PhD in Education student at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. My dissertation research focuses on the teacher perspective on the use of game-based pedagogy in the classroom. I would love to hear from some of you regarding WHY you believe in utilizing games for learning or game-based-learning principles in your classroom settings. Are any of you gamers yourselves? Do you believe in the research studies that tote the benefits of GBL? Does your PLN recommend GBL and that's why you have your kids use and/or create their own games in the classroom?
Any and all answers appreciated!
