Looking for ways to reinforce learning in a new and engaging way? Gamification uses features of game play, such as scoring, teams, and competition into the learning space. You can bring interaction and cultivate connections among your students by using easy to design “board” games using resources you already have. Mario Kart is one example of how quickly, and inexpensively, content can be turned into an educational board game that will encourage group learning while being entertaining. With multiple choice and quick answer questions that can be easily adapted to any discipline to review content and serve as a captivating study guide, Mario Kart can be a valuable supplemental tool to engage students in the learning process at various learning resources areas while achieving learning outcomes such as group cohesiveness and collaboration, connections with the content, and entertainment with easy-to-access materials.
