How a High School Teacher Is ‘Gamifying’ World News

See on Scoop.itM-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications

A high school teacher is on a mission to make world news and geopolitics relevant to his students through a Fantasy Football-inspired game.

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

This is a pretty cool concept, and definitely creative thinking of how to gamify social studies and current events, but also a great way to get kids to use digital tools to learn. The teacher even tracks it all on a website. Now, if this could be made into a mobile app….(give it time! Give it time!)
