ClassCraft (with the MYP)
(An avatar of me! The ClassCraft team made this after something I created was chosen as Quest of the Month. They also send me an amazing poster with this on too!)
Last year I used ClassCraft to gamify my classes. This is a great website, where all of my students can log in, and they can earn points, (through positive behaviour - linked to ATLs and IBLP, or through extra-credit quests), and they can customise their characters! It also has a lot of fun features, like the volume meter, (which my students literally beg me to put on), as well as boss battles, (multiple-choice battles, where they destroy a monster).
I very rarely set homework, and if I do, it is only a short reflection vide on FlipGrid. However, I have lots of students who ask to learn more. In ClassCraft I am able to make 'Quests'. This are story based, extra-cred activities, which students can do at their own pace, (you can also do it in class, and pace it yourself). I've done ones about how design improves space travel, right through to a coding quest.
Long quests are not part of the free package, but you can do quests, with up to six objectives, on the free account.
So that you can experience a quest, sign up to ClassCraft, and import this new quest I made. It is short, so available to all free accounts, and it focussed on the UN Global Goals. When you have an account, click this link to import the quest: "Save the World by 2030" I use the UN Global Goals for all my units, and have put this in ClassCraft, along with rewards for strengthening their Approaches to Learning Skills (ATLs) and demonstrating the IB Learner Profile!
If you like it, and sign up, then you are welcome to import my other quests too:
Lastly - I know that my post my sound a bit abstract, and you may just want to see it in action, so here is a video tutorial, showing all the key features and set up!
