I'm happy to say that I just ended my first school year where I've had the pleasure of using Classcraft. I am tremendously pleased with how well Classcraft went over with my students throughout the year! I am making some tweaks to my custom powers and daily events, as well as adding in some additional flair to the program for my next year. For this year, I essentially piloted the program in only one of my prep classes (my AP Seminar students) so that I would not get overwhelmed, since it only consists of 2 out of my 7 classes of the day. I took a survey at the end of the year to see how the students felt about it, I was pleasantly surprised by the results that I saw. Here's a link to that survey if you wish to see some of their customized input: http://tinyurl.com/ycjrsbvv
For next year, I have some exciting ideas I'm working on. My first point of interest is to make the process of introducing and explaining the system to them much more intuitive and simple. I've been an avid user of Adobe's Spark ever since I learned about it a few months ago, so I made this crude presentation page and video to help my incoming students next season: https://spark.adobe.com/page/82BcenaNvpySU/
I took one of my ideas that I instituted earlier this year and brought it to a more corporeal form this time around. I'm so excited about this that I just couldn't wait to get over my cold make a video about my new system that I detailed out here: https://youtu.be/TTG4U_M1xow
I'm really interested to see what everyone else has experienced this year. I'm looking forward to not just using this with my new students, but getting more teachers on board to create a genuine dynamic change in our school culture!
