Why students love a game-based learning experience by SUSANNAH HOLZ

Why students love a game-based learning experience by SUSANNAH HOLZ | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Gamification in learning is an established trend, and uses the core elements of what make games fun – mastery, narrative, instant feedback, competition, and reward, to create new ways for learners to internalize information.That's why students simply love a game-based learning experience.

Excelentes herramientas para llevar al salón de clases. 

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, April 12, 6:22 PM
Augmented reality–a technology that uses a trigger image to superimpose digital content over a user’s view of the real world–is growing in popularity and accessibility, and it holds a wealth of potential for education. Often described as “QR codes on steroids,” the technology offers new and exciting ways for students to interact with lessons, said Jeff Peterson, an instructional technologist in the Lamar Consolidated ISD in Texas. Peterson presented a TCEA 2017 session on augmented reality’s application in classrooms.
Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s curator insight, April 14, 2:12 AM

It is not the schools that fail. It is people running schools and deciding what should be done in each classroom. Not only do they fail the children, they fail teachers. We confuse reform for transforming schools.
