Australian Teachers


My name is Lee Coumbe and I am a science teacher at Churchlands Senior High School in Perth, WA. Curious to know if there are Australian teachers put there using classcraft to share experiences with.

Hi Lee, I have been using ClassCraft with my 5/6 composite for a year and I have just setup my class for 2017.

A fantastic resource to support collaborative learning in my classroom. I have also learnt a lot myself - like not having a Power to move desks for the whole day - it was just too disruptive. So I have adjusted that to being able to move for 1 lesson. Small changes but important ones!

PS: I am based in Sydney.

Hi Lee, 


I am an English Teacher at Baldivis Secondary College and I have been using this program with my year seven and nine students for over a year now. I saw behaviour issues drop and engagement increase when students were earning XP and competing in battles or waiting for the Wheel of Destiny. 

I am hoping to expand it into some more classes and attempt some across subject work this year as well.

I'm interested in dabbling in this as a means to help my grade 9s and 10s engage better. I'm based in Tasmania and currently on contract at a rural highschool for Term 1 & 2 at least. My subjects are English and History.
Any advice on if there are Aus. Curriculum lessons on here already?

Hey Nicolle,

I teach upper primary (NSW) and have had great success. 90% of my students found Classcraft engaging and the quests help them understand the content better.

Honestly, I have been using Classcraft prior to the marketplace so have made all of my quests myself. The quests are really easy to make!

Whilst I know that I teach 3 years below you I can send you one of my quests to show you how I work with English/History syllabus in quests.

Hi Luke,

Any chance you could send me what you have been using with upper elementary?  I am finding it a bit difficult to get my head around how this all works!

Hey Kate,

Are you talking in terms of online learning in the current environment or are you talking in a general 'face to face' teaching environment?

Wow that was a quick reply!  Not sure yet.  Possibly both.  Would love to hear any ideas and thoughts you have around it.

Happy to talk - I find it difficult to explain really well through message boards. If you use twitter, send me a direct message (@thedrainonedu) and we can organise a zoom or g.meets to talk through some of the things I used and strategies we have deployed at my school regarding online learning environments.

Dear teachers,

I am new to to this platform and a role player, teacher and media maker.

I am based in Darwin and was wondering if there are any exemplar adventures related to the Australian Curriculum? has any mapping been done?

Are there any forums/groups where Australian teachers can moderate and share Classcraft resources?

I would love to speak to any secondary teachers about your experiences with Classcraft in regards to behavior management and EAL/D.
