I have always found that levelling up and being awarded badges whilst playing games has motivated me. Others must feel the same as there are hundreds of walk through books and videos online that explain how to get “hidden” items and bonus awards. In the summer I was introduced to Fitocracy, a website that has taken this “Games Based Learning” into the fitness industry. The website now has over 100,000 members and awards members with badges and achievements as they add their fitness workouts. I had a conversation with the Guys at Fitocracy and asked if they had a version for schools, unfortunately they haven’t so, I decided to give it a go myself. Below is a link to my video, it is basic, but hopefully explains how the program works and my ideas behind it.
Let me know what you think!
