Engagement, SEL and Positive Behaviours: A Conversation with Classcraft CEO Shawn Young

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Classcraft is a Quest-based system that promotes student engagement and positive behaviours by gamifying the classroom. The Quebec-based company has been moving from strength to strength and garnering awards since Profweb first reported on their platform in 2015. In January 2019 I travelled to Sherbrooke to interview Classcraft co-founder and CEO Shawn Young in order to learn more about a number of new features added to the Classcraft ecosystem in 2018, like their EMS analytics, the Quests Marketplace and a recent mobile app update.

Students and teachers from 4 colleges collaborated around shared goals. The teachers developed projects that would allow the students to apply course content to real world contexts in their community.
