World of Classcraft is an ambitious Kickstarter project by Shawn Young. A Kickstarter is a way for companies to find funding from donations of others in a limited amount of time. I really like these as it helps get some excellent startup companies noticed.
World of Classcraft is an innovative idea of bringing the mega-popular online role-playing game into the classroom. The way this work is students would pick a character from one of three classes: mage, warrior, healer. The students then progress through real-life situations and helping out others/collaborating to gain experience points. From this they can gain rewards, level up, etc. Bad behavior or doing bad on homework or tests can result in loss of experience/health points, and the player can even die (ie, Saturday detention).
