This is Eric Anderson (Founder of ThePullbox LLC), and I have been rather busy the last few months. Aside from being an educator, administrator and creating / editing content for you all, I have been writing and publishing a classroom gamification piece! I have been an educator for over 20 years, and I have managed to combine my passions for interdisciplinary design, personalized learning, story-telling, and exploration to create The Descendants of Hedeby!
This publication provides the materials, instructions, and framework for educators to achieve benchmark goals for their classroom (whether that be behavioral, educational, or a mix) while immersing their learners in a rich narrative. In The Descendants of Hedeby, learners form ship crews and travel between multiple island nations, taking on and completing trade runs while learning benchmark skills.
This is the first in a line of gamifications that I am rolling out, my students have enjoyed it… I know yours will too!
Take a look at the website and shoot me a tweet (@EricAndersonWI or @Eric_thePullbox) or email (Eric@thepullbox.com) with any questions!
