How about Plickers?

02:11 - Susie @shighley
Finally able to type. Don't know what causes that. Sometimes I have to log in a second time to get sound. Hello from sunny Indianapolis (finally)

04:06 - Peggy George
great trip down memory lane!!

04:21 - Peggy George
Welcome Ben and Sava! Thanks for joining us!!

04:27 - Ben

04:50 - Peggy George
that is a great explanation Jessie! Thanks!

05:13 - Peggy George
who doesn't love to play games??? :-) definitely helps with engaging kids!

05:24 - Peggy George
Thanks Stacy!

06:30 - Peggy George
I was so excited when I first heard Jessie tell me about their PD challenge! I love how they came together to collaborate on how to do it in the classroom.

07:39 - Peggy George
They have an awesome tech Livebinder for their teachers! (Madison Technology Livebinder)

08:42 - Peggy George
I love the Horizon Report! It provides so much information about how technology is being used in schools!

09:31 - Doug Henry (San Leandro, CA)
We'll miss the Horizon Reports - been discontinued...

09:35 - Peggy George
Jessie has provided several of the Google Scholar research articles in the Livebinder.

09:49 - Peggy George
so true Doug!!!!

10:29 - Peggy George
the games are the motivation! you don't need to provide incentives to the kids to make them want to learn :-)

10:46 - Peggy George (Finding the Future: Inside NYPL’ All-Night Scavenger Hunt)

10:53 - Peggy George
I loved that story!!!

11:07 - Peggy George
that's a great quote!

11:37 - Susie @shighley
Yes, Doug, that shocked many people

11:53 - Peggy George
We've included links to all of these game examples in the Livebinder! :-)

12:15 - Peggy George
many of these were mentioned by you in our poll question :-)

12:23 - Ben
quizlet is fun too

12:40 - Peggy George
thanks for that link Susie! Makes me sad every time I see it!

12:53 - Peggy George
I agree Ben! Quizlet is great!

13:23 - Peggy George
I'll add links to other tools mentioned during the poll question to the Livebinder after the show.

13:54 - Peggy George
I'm looking forward to hearing how they are using the badges!

14:07 - Peg Volak
Tried playing Quizlet LIVE w/ 2nd graders....oh the arguing! We'll need to try it again, but they didn't/couldn't work collaboratively! Quite the eye opener and disaster all in 1 lesson!

14:23 - Peggy George (BadgeOS and BadgeStack)

15:11 - Peggy George
I didn't think about Pokemon Go when I was thinking about games for the classroom. Do any of you use Pokemon Go in your teaching?

15:29 - Peggy George
Hi clinds! Welcome!

15:33 - Peggy George
Welcome Charell!

16:36 - Peggy George
This is a great list! I use all of them!! I have included links in the Livebinder with specific gamification webinar recordings, blog posts and articles! You'll love exploring them!

17:09 - Peggy George
There are several EdWeb recordings about gamification in the Livebinder! You have to register to access all of them but it's all free!

17:17 - Anthippi Harou (Greece)
Hello from Greece! Sorry for being late! I'll watch the beginning of the webinar on the recording!

17:22 - Peggy George (Edutopia gamification resources)

17:30 - Peggy George (Gamification resources on

17:45 - Peggy George (EdWeb webinar and recording: More Than Fun & Games: The Games4Ed Initiative)

18:17 - Peggy George
This is a great resource! (Digital Learning Game Database for Students)

19:10 - Peggy George
it's so hard for teachers to find time to participate in PD for learning about technology and they need more support than a one-time workshop!

19:33 - Susie @shighley
Wow! That database is something

20:08 - Peggy George
I think BreakoutEDU is now providing some awesome opportunities for gamification in the classroom and with professional development!

20:32 - Susie @shighley
Our classified staff often feel overlooked and left out

20:43 - Peggy George
I love that they have challenges for both teachers (certified) and support staff (classified).

21:25 - Peggy George
so true Susie! Support staff members are often overlooked in this kind of training/learning!

22:21 - Peggy George
What a great idea to post them on the hallway walls!! Let's students and parents know they are always learning!

22:31 - Susie @shighley
What about the staff members who don't get many badges?

22:50 - Annette Whitby
I like the poster approach showing the accomplishments of the groups. Seems doable for my online classroom.

23:05 - Charell 1
Seems like that would encourage them to step up

23:05 - Peggy George
great question Susie! I would think it might motivate them to earn more when they are posting them publicly. :-)

23:24 - Peggy George
yes Annette! I think that could work great in an online classroom!

24:01 - Charell 1
My same thoughts Peggy!

24:20 - Peggy George
these challenges really encourage the teachers to use technology!

24:29 - Susie @shighley
I'm just thinking of parallels to student data walls...

25:20 - Susie @shighley
If I could get a badge/sticker for Classroom 2.0 webinars, I'd have a full poster!

25:30 - Peggy George
I love that they have so many choices and can choose challenges that are interesting to them!

25:40 - Peggy George
haha Susie! me too!!! :-)

26:21 - Peggy George
They used to call their tech facilitators "MICE" :-)

28:14 - Peggy George
How much time does it take teachers to submit their evidence? Do they have to write something up or can they just submit the product they created (like a video)?

29:16 - Peggy George
great that they can earn points for sharing what they learned with other teachers :-)

30:00 - Peggy George
great label! Professional Revolution! walking the walk, talking the talk :-)

31:01 - Peggy George
Do teachers feel like they are competing with each other with earning badges? I'd love to hear more about what their thoughts are about the badges.

31:58 - Peggy George
Do any of you have "Jean Day" in your schools? A day to dress casually.

32:38 - Ben
great rewards

32:43 - Peggy George
those are really great rewards!!! wow!

33:27 - Ben
this is also a good opportunity to tie up with companies

33:28 - Peggy George
a Chromebook cart is an awesome reward for a change agent! :-)

33:37 - Peggy George
I agree Ben!

33:44 - Peggy George
Hi LucianeCurator! Welcome!

34:05 - LucianeCurator
Hi all. Sorry I am late.

34:26 - Peggy George
catered lunch/dinner! wow! very creative rewards!! I would love to see a list of all of those rewards you are using!

35:03 - Patti Ruffing
wonder how much money they set aside in the budget for PD rewards...could get expensive

35:09 - Peggy George
Livebinder link for today (in case you missed it)

35:30 - Peggy George
wow! that's super Jessie and Stacy!

35:45 - Susie @shighley
So, can people in your district earn a badge for watching this webinar that you are presenting?

36:01 - Peggy George
Submitting a Google Form for evidence is a great idea!

36:44 - Peggy George
principals must love seeing that all in one place :-)

36:57 - Ben
forms can be linked to QR codes posted everywhere for easier submission

37:14 - Peggy George
Hi Dejan! Great to see you! Welcome!!

37:29 - Dejan Kreculj
Hi Peggy!

38:55 - Peggy George
Jessie would it be possible for you to share a template of your Google Form? It would be great to see!

39:43 - Peggy George
What are some examples of artifacts the teachers are submitting for their challenges?

40:40 - Peggy George
Jessie & Stacy, we have about 13 mins left. :-)

41:51 - Peggy George
I think it would be great if they could go further in depth on some of the challenges to extend their learning.

42:10 - Susie @shighley
That last point is true just about everywhere: fewer initiatives

42:14 - Charell 1
Sharing that google form would be great!!!

42:25 - Charell 1
Yay!!!! For the giveaway

42:26 - Peggy George
oh Boy!!

42:35 - Charell 1
I'm ready

42:53 - Charell 1
Fingers crossed

42:58 - LucianeCurator

43:22 - Annette Whitby

43:47 - Charell 1
My number changed

44:08 - Nabila

44:08 - Annette Whitby

44:25 - Joan Kane
Yeah! Congrats!

44:33 - Nabila
So happy :)

44:46 - Nabila
Thank so much!

45:40 - Annette Whitby

45:46 - Charell 1

45:55 - Sharon Gullett

46:12 - Peggy George
Congratulations Joan and Nabila!!! Woo hoo!!!!

46:23 - Jessie McKinley 1
Congrats Joan and Nabila!

46:26 - Nabila
Thank you so much :-)

46:41 - Peggy George
That is always such a challenge to keep students engaged when they're finished with their regular assignments!

46:52 - Peggy George
especially gifted students!!!!

47:25 - Peggy George
haha! play!!! :-)

47:41 - Peggy George
Love that acronym! WIN Time (what I need time)

47:45 - Charell 1
Can she share the template being displayed, please

48:38 - Peggy George
that's a great way to organize them!

49:18 - Peggy George
would you like the chart Charell? I'm guessing you would like to be able to read what is on the chart, right?

50:10 - Peggy George
that would be really fun for them to create a Jeopardy game for vocabulary review :-)

51:35 - Peggy George
I'll ask Jessie and Stacy to share these templates with me and I'll post them in the Livebinder later. (if they can)

52:12 - Peggy George
I think she said box top money. How do you earn that?

52:49 - Charell 1
I use jeopardy for vocab, novel review etc using Love it!!!

53:01 - Jessie McKinley 1
Box Tops are from certain products from the grocery store

53:15 - Jessie McKinley 1
They are turned in for money....

53:52 - Peggy George
Do any of you use Words with Friends EDU? This was a great EdWeb webinar on that! (EdWeb webinar and recording: Teaching Academic Vocabulary with Words with Friends EDU)

54:18 - Peggy George
thanks Charell! Jeopardylabs are great!

54:47 - Peggy George
thanks Jessie! I had heard of collecting box tops but I didn't know you could turn them in for money!

55:10 - Peggy George (Words with Friends EDU)

55:32 - Peggy George
Love what you are doing!!!

55:43 - Peggy George
Lorie has some questions to ask you Stacy and Jessie.

55:58 - Annette Whitby
An informative session! Thx!!

56:10 - Tiziana Angiolini ( Scandiano in Italy)

56:38 - Peggy George

57:06 - Anthippi Harou (Greece)
Thanks a lot!

58:58 - Peggy George
do they always work on badges as individual teachers or can they work together with a group of teachers to earn them (like grade level teachers)?

59:27 - Ben
How is the impact on learning evaluated with the teachers' tech initiatives?

59:55 - Peggy George
This is in the LIvebinder but I love it! Bingo game for PD from Sarah Thomas. (Sarah Thomas: #Edumatch Bingo at #CUERockstar. Hands-on professional development Bingo game explaining process and instructions she used to help participants learn about Edumatch.)

1:00:30 - Susie @shighley
I do think a lot would depend on the culture of your school, and this could help build your school culture

1:01:05 - Peggy George
That is a great question Ben! I imagine it must be hard to make those connections to directly attribute student growth to the use of technology in their classroom.

1:02:32 - Peggy George
it would be hard to know how to budget for the rewards because the most expensive ones are the highest levels

1:02:57 - Peggy George
more likely to need more of the lower level prizes :-)

1:03:22 - Peggy George
hooray!! Level 1 points for participating in a webinar like this!

1:03:31 - Peggy George
that is so cool!

1:04:03 - Peggy George
Can they watch a webinar recording to earn the points?

1:04:34 - Peggy George
I'll talk to Jessie and Stacy about those templates after the show to see what we can work out.

1:06:11 - Peggy George
being able to collaborate on a challenge would make it much easier for teachers who are feeling nervous about the tech.

1:06:46 - Peggy George
that's often the case--anecdotal evidence of student learning

1:09:03 - Anthippi Harou (Greece)
Oh, great webinars!
