If you haven’t heard, I’m doing eXPlore like a Pirate all this month on Dice UP the Classroom. Based on the new book by Michael Matera. Which is all about bringing Gamification and Game-Inspired Course design to your classroom. I will be doing my Appification, which is App Smashing based around Game-Inspired design in another week to close out the month of January before leading to my new endeavor, Build like a Pirate starting in February. Check out Michael’s work both on his website and his book or look on twitter at #XPLAP or #tlap on twitter.
