Description
To develop collaboration and shared speaking in the classroom, simple but very effective gamification is used, which can be adapted to many different contexts. The key element of game mechanics is as follows: - each activity is first carried out individually by each student in the group; - individual responses are then discussed and improved within the group; - the teacher chooses (at random) a member of a group, and evaluates his answer; - the points are awarded to the whole group, on a digital scoreboard. > The group with the most points (optionally with the highest number of competence badges) wins the game.
Mode of delivery
Classroom-based
Aims

    Production of the common answer. Each group agrees on the best answer to give. This is a phase of negotiation and critical discussion. It is in the interest of each group that each member properly assimilates the common position, as each member of the group can then be drawn by lot to answer on behalf of the group.

    One interest of this gamification is the promotion of mutual support within each group, because each group has an interest in each of its members (when drawn by lot) being able to answer questions appropriately, in order to win points. The winner is the group with the highest scrore, at the end of the time.
Notes:
This gamification setting can be augmented with badges to recognise specific skills during the discussion, such as "knowledge", "argumentation", "clarity", etc.
