Mrs. Brown Presents at OMLA & Conducts 1st Music Fest

Mrs. Alaura Brown, Edgewood Middle School math teacher, spoke at the Ohio Middle Level Association Conference in Sandusky, Ohio in October that over 900 teachers attended. She was one of 100 speakers at this year’s event. Mrs. Brown spoke on Gamification, which is a new area in education. Her presentation focused on how to incorporate interactive, high interest gamification elements such as leader boards and badges into the classroom. This new approach in education incorporates game elements into a non-game setting. It leads to elevated engagement and increased motivation in nearly all students. Mrs. Brown was also responsible for hosting Edgewood’s first Music Fest on November 16. This event focused on investigating the relationship and history between mathematics and music. Over 50 student-musicians from Edgewood Middle School and Edgewood High School attended the interactive event.
