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

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

As a writer, I find this set of predictions both interesting and, well, less than overwhelming. I'd like to see more creativity, especially with regard to the "least likely" possibilities, and less focus on tech companies. I'm more interested in thinking about what life might be like, than in which social media giant is on top. What predictions do you have, and what do you think are the odds for or against?

Una buena infografía que resume estudios con resultados del efecto de los videojuegos en el aprendizaje de la educacion superior, cosa que no habia visto mucho.  Además, el inicio es bastante claro, hacer un videojuego "serio" o educativo es doble reto: lograr los objetivos de aprendizaje propuestos y diseñar un gameplay igualmente divertido, motivador, estimulante... es la diferencia entre un videojuego educativo de un juego didactico.

Taryn Coxall's curator insight, October 8, 2013 10:24 PM

This article gives great insight into the upcoming phenominon of "Game Based Learning".Although i have never seen it in my practises, after reading abit about it, i believe game based learning is something i would incoperate into my own classroom. Game Based learning provides a stimulating and engaging way of learning for children on a wide range of educational areas and topics. It is proven through this approach to learning students aremore likely to become motivated to learn, become increasingly engage and excel in their learning. 
Although many peoleay belive an "old school" approach to teaching is best, i feel it is highly necassary to kepp up with the fast moving pace of technology on offer, and use theseresources to help student in the classroom. Most learners that i have come aross are kinaesthetic learning, being one myself i can see how these games will help a variety of different learners and create opportunity for divergent thinking.

great resource which has iven me great insight.
