Increasing Graduation Rates through Game Theory

Research has highlighted key predictors of student success that are both measurable and timely. This session shares insights and techniques on how game theory (gamification) is integrated to drive desired behavioral outcomes tied to these predictors to improve high school graduation rates and college-going rates. Research and examples from global brands (points, leaderboards, badges) will be shown to demonstrate how they can be applied to education.
