I have so many ideas!

by Calantha on Apr 12, 2012 at 06:00 PM
I love 3D Game Lab, so much that I want to completely transform my school nest year and have the teachers use it almost exclusively. The problem with this is that I do not have enough time or man power to take all of our curriculum and put it into 3DGame Lab by this coming fall.

My favorite part about Game Lab is that it does not let the student fail. I am the Principal at a Native American Private School. The students that I work with are very bright, but if they get a bad grade, even once, they give up. Motivation from home is often lacking. They have a hard time picking themselves up and trying again. I think that Game Lab could completely transform them.

Now I just have to figure out how to clone myself so that I can make this happen. Any Ideas?

I don't know about cloning yourself, but be sure to take advantage of the Quest Armory to clone some quests. That will save you some time!

I love the "low-stakes failure" element of 3D GameLab too. I went crazy and designed a class that started BEFORE the training ended last August. But I was as inspired as you are and couldn't wait to start. And you know, it worked pretty well. Not perfectly, not by a long shot, and my students had to have a lot of patience with me sometimes, but I really could see that transformation from passivity to boldness in their learning. It really does work!
