Application: Goalfish – Video!
Goal setting and achievement is one of the most highly correlated traits of peak performers and successful individuals (Borba, 2012). Yet, when asked, many students have no specific goals as relates to school. At the same time, while hundreds of educational web applications deal with teaching specific subject matter, many students feel isolated or left alone to figure out how to achieve proficiency goals in those subjects. Goalfish solves these issues by providing an engaging and motivating web application that leverages game mechanics, social interaction and social media to teach students how to effectively set and achieve their goals.
