Are you ready to transform your classroom into an experiential work that flourishes on collaboration and creativity? Then set sail with classroom game designer and educator Michael Matera as he reveals the possibilities and power of game-based learning.

In Explore Like a PIRATE, Matera serves as your experienced guide to help you apply the most motivational techniques of gameplay to your classroom using strategies that work with and enhance (rather than replace) your current curriculum.

Part one
debunks common myths and fears about gamification and explains why and how game-based learning effectively engages students in any subject or grade level.

Part two
focuses on how you can empower students to take control of their learning. You'll also learn all about the different kinds of players in your classroom - and how to inspire them to set and achieve big goals.

Part three
is an all-in-one treasure chest, tool box, and field guide. Packed with ideas and examples that can be applied or adapted to any classroom - from badges and points, to mini-games and yearlong adventures - this is a resource you'll return to again and again.

Jamie Brooker, Co-founder & Chief Creative Officer, Kahoot! 

Turn your class into an adventure! Explore Like a Pirate is a must read for teachers looking to energize and excite their students. 
Alice Keeler, Author of 50 Things You Can Do with Google Classroom

Engagement is not a myth, make it reality with this motivating, practical book for teachers everywhere. I highly recommend Explore Like a Pirate.
Vicki Davis, Teacher,  BAM! Radio Host of Every Classroom Matters, & Author

"Well played, Mr. Matera!"
Steve Isaacs, Teacher, Video Game Design and Development

Matera plots both the why and the how to make learning (and teaching) more engaging and fun in and out of the classroom." 
- Adam Bellow, Founder and President of eduTecher and eduClipper

If you think motivation, engagement and passion are golden doubloons in the learning treasure chest, Michael's book, Explore Like a Pirate, can provide you with a map and compelling directions to help you find your way to the big, black X.
- Kevin Honeycutt, International Speaker and Educational Futurist

Explore Like a Pirate will empower you to set sail for a new land of learning!
James Sanders, Founder of Breakout EDU

Explore Like a Pirate is a must-have tool in the arsenal of the innovative teacher. The book effectively paints a picture of gamification, detailing the many benefits to students, such as allowing them to take ownership of their learning, while cultivating soft skills such as collaboration and empathy. This can be used by any educator for any subject and any age group, and the book will tell you exactly how to do it!
Sarah Thomas, Speaker & Regional Technology Coordinator

Gamification is one of the most important, yet easily misunderstood instructional strategies in schools. Michael Matera provides an extremely practical, helpful guide for teachers to gamify learning in their classroom. I highly recommend this book. 
- Wesley Fryer, Ph.D., Author of Playing with Media & Show What You Know With Media

Michael Matera takes the concept of gaming & explains it in terms that could make sense to any educator. It's easy to read with actionable ideas you can use in your classroom immediately.- George Couros, Speaker, Division Principal, & Author of The Innovator's Mindset

Matera takes his years of practical knowledge in using game-based education and anchors it in an entertaining, yet user-friendly, guide that teachers can read today and use tomorrow to get their students having fun while being actively engaged in content. He understands today's learner and provides helpful tips and strategies for teachers to transform their learning environments into one that encourages students to intrinsically take risks, persevere, collaborate, and 'level-up' as they exponentially grow like never before!
- Erin Klein, Teacher, Keynote, and Author
