Some dreary November day my junior year of high school, I plugged away at a calculus test. As I calculated how quickly the height of water was changing in a tank draining at some fixed rate, I felt it emanating from my right pocket. Buzz. I knew exactly what it was: a group chat of my friends who attended another high school, texting over their lunch hour. This wasn’t an uncommon occurrence — my phone often blew up during this class, text after text, notification after notification.

Last year, as I sat in my organic chemistry lecture, a rather disturbing thought passed through my mind: This professor could say pretty much anything, and I’d believe it.

What would a course look like if students were able to choose how they earned their grades? Gameful learning, one of the biggest revolutions in pedagogy, seeks to address just that. At the University of Michigan, gameful learning comes in the form of GradeCraft, the brainchild of Barry Fishman, Arthur F. Thurnau professor of Learning Technologies in the School of Information and School of Education. The project is currently sponsored by the Digital Innovation Greenhouse.

How often do we find ourselves obsessing over these arbitrary measures of time? As students, we’re constantly reminded of deadlines, meetings and lectures, rigid in time, dictating our every action.

One sleepy morning during my sophomore year of high school, my teacher posed a question to the class that has lingered in the back of my mind ever since: “Which are more valuable to society: the sciences or the arts?”

I remember most of the kids in my class answered science without hesitation. I had much more trouble producing an answer, but I settled on arts partially to be devil’s advocate and partially because I couldn’t imagine a world without art or music or books.
