Looking to find a new, simple, and free way to gamify your classroom? There a new web tool out that you should probably know about. It’s called ClassBadges and it’s a free online tool where teachers can award badges for student accomplishments. Teachers can set up an account and award the badges whenever they wish. Pretty straightforward.
How It Works
Request an invite to create an account (it looks like right now, they’re working on handling a higher capacity of users), and once you do, you’ll be able to create a class list. From there, you’ll have a class code to give to your students, who will be able to sign in and see their badges.
You’re able to choose what badges are awarded (and they’re customizable!) and what goals the students need to attain to qualify for the badge. Students will be able to see their badges from different classes and subjects in one place, so they can keep track of progress in a variety of subjects.
Check out the short video below for a quick overview of how it works. So far, the buzz on Twitter says that teachers and students are having fun with the badges. It’s an easy way to bring the gamification concept to your classroom. Have you used it yet?
