Title

TEACHING WITH TOOLS OF ENGAGEMENT : POLLS, OHMAGE AND GAMIFICATION WITH BADGES AND LEADER BOARDS

Abstract

Every instructor seeks to increase their student’s level of engagement. If you can get someone interested, they move from passive learning to active learning. Active learning increases the opportunity for “Ah Hah” moments that make learning more fun and memorable. In this session we will look at the engagement tools including UCLA’s Online Polling Tool, called OPT, The OhmageX tool platform and other emerging tools such as “Engagement Meters” , Digital Badges and Leader Boards.
UCLA statistics professor Rob Gould will discuss The Mobilize project and using ohmage X with partner LAUSD.
