Three ways to use Minecraft imaginatively in the classroom - the guardian

Three ways to use Minecraft imaginatively in the classroom - the guardian | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Excited shouts of “left, left, left”, “knock down that tree” or “pick up that stone” can only mean one thing: your students have discovered the virtual world of Minecraft.

Since its launch in 2011, children and adults worldwide have spent hours creating unique environments. The video game generates a blank landscape of different terrains that players explore. They construct buildings, mine for useful materials and, depending on what mode you’re in, may have to defend yourself from attacks or stave off hunger

As a treat for the readers of this blog here is a longer and more complete interview with Sir Ken Robinson that was recorded as part of the Learning {Re}imagined book where he discusses educational technology, creativity, assessment and the future of learning (15 minutes).   There are more exclusive videos contained within the book…

Lisa Gorman's curator insight, March 26, 7:02 PM

I have a great admiration for the thinking of Sir Ken Robinson... He speaks so eloquently and argues for creative learning...and so much more...

 

A stand out quote for me from this interview;

 

"What tends to dull the appetite [for learning] is being force fed things that people can't see an immediately relevance in or don't have an immediate interest in it...or where they are forced to learn in situations where they are inimitable... you know, 8 hours a day, sit still, do as you're told."

 

Bring on different ways of engaging with people around learning so that they not only 'get it' but they really enjoy it and become life long learners.

 

I recommend this 15 minute video to you!

Cómo llevar a cabo el aprendizaje basado en problemas con las TIC

Cómo llevar a cabo el aprendizaje basado en problemas con las TIC | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Si tuviéramos que dar una definición sencilla de  lo que es el ABP (aprendizaje basado en problemas) nos quedamos con la que dio Barrows y Tamblin: "Aquel aprendizaje que resulta de un proceso de trabajo dirigido hacia la comprensión o resolución de un problema, siendo el problema el punto de partida del proceso de aprendizaje".

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, November 30, 2014 10:47 AM

Muchas veces hablamos indistintamente de aprendizaje basado en proyectos y de aprendizaje basado en problemas como si fuesen lo mismo; sin embargo, y a modo de puntualización, el aprendizaje basado en proyectos se trata de un modelo formativo cuyos fundamentos son los mismos que los del aprendizaje basado en problemas pero que tiene como finalidad el logro o fabricación de un producto final.

A la hora de llevar a cabo una metodología ABP tenemos que tener claros cuáles son los roles que desempeñan tanto alumnos como docentes en cada una de las diferentes fases por las que pasa el ABP.

Using minecraft with students is as liminted only if teachers imagination is limited. You dont need high cost to use it. One english lit teacher asked her students to build the setting of a novel they were reading...a math teacher set a project for students building 3d geometrical shapes ...what fun !

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

Augmented reality is an enhanced media experience in an environment for a user. There are multiple types of experiences. These computer generated environments let you hear music or sounds, watch videos, move and scale a 3D model, or place you in a scene that can be anywhere. All of these possibilities are interactive and require the user to trigger the possible experience.

In recent years many innovative schools have begun a shift toward the use of educational technology. Even though your institution may be ready to make a similar transition, it’s not always clear where to start. Without a clear vision and wise counsel, such a shift can be time-consuming as well as costly.
