7 tips for a Game-Based Learning success

7 tips for a Game-Based Learning success | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
Why is gaming so important to the Learning success?

The use of games with learning purposes is not new. Perhaps one of the most remarkable and significant person on this issue is Jean Piaget and his Constructivism approach. According to this, learning is an active process where the learner takes part of it since he builds up new ideas based upon current or past knowledge.

Cultural Sensitivity Needed in Online Discussion Rubric Language | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
International student and online course enrollments had noted increases for 2010 at U.S. tertiary institutions (Institute of International Education, 2010 & Sloan-C, 2010). These enrollment data remind us that U.S. campuses are continually becoming more culturally and internationally diverse in their student populations. However, this diversity may not always be apparent in the increasing numbers of students taking online courses as the instructor-student interaction is not face-to-face as in s

The basic cognitive skills needed by previous generations are no longer enough. Students in the conceptual age must also master the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, including creation, metacognition and self-actualization.

“It will require an upgrade to our curriculum, new instructional methods and materials, a new profile of a global graduate and an open mind,” say Smith, Chavez and Seaman.

How to Move from Teaching Content to Teaching Learning

How to Move from Teaching Content to Teaching Learning | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

By Kelly Morgan Dempewolf, PhD Lifelong learners. It’s a phrase that appears in mission statements of schools, districts, and state agencies across the country. It’s a worthy goal—to produce people that continue to learn and value learning throughout their adult lives. Despite being a fairly universal goal of educators and education systems, producing lifelong learners is not a process that has a set of concrete steps. Despite being a part of systems that included the phrase in their mission, I've never been shown how to actually make it happen.’

The author then goes on to identify characteristics students need to develop to become lifelong learners. Short blog post, worth a quick read.

How to Make Students Better Online Researchers

How to Make Students Better Online Researchers | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

I recently came across an article in Wired Magazine called “Why Kids Can’t Search“.  I’m always interested in this particular topic, because it’s something I struggle with in my middle and high school classes constantly, and I know I’m not alone in my frustrations.

 

Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again. We never question the vital importance of teaching literacy, but we have to be mindful that there are many kinds of “literacies”. An ever more important one that ALL teachers need to be aware of is digital literacy. I could go off in many directions on this, but for the purpose of this post I’m focusing strictly on the digital literacy of searching.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 9, 2014 12:47 PM

Research, search, and inquiry are different processes. They are each important and overlap, but are still distinct. Research moves knowledge along. Searching is looking for information. Inquiry is posing questions.

6 targets to teach the way the brain learns

6 targets to teach the way the brain learns | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

When you’re standing in front of a classroom of students who’re not quite sure they even want to be in your class, much less pay attention to what’s being said, things like neuroscience, research studies, and teaching the way the brain learns are an abstraction.

Yet, brain-targeted teaching can engage and excite students because it taps into factors that stimulate the brain, grab the attention, and set the stage for learning.

 

Dr. Mariale Hardiman, a former school principal, now professor at Johns Hopkins, developed a teaching framework designed to help teachers, teach the way the brain learns. Practioners of the model, Justin Holbrook, Jeremy Mettler, and Vicky Krug, describe the model as a set of guidelines to help organize material, “It gives you a way to organize the material you’re covering and to explore different ways to communicate it, explains Holbrook.

 

Krug continues, “Learning only occurs when the student can connect new information to old information. Teaching someone how a car works is pointless if they don’t know what a car is.” Mettler also points out the importance of recognizing it as a non-linear process, “The components are all interrelated.”

When we think of audio, we always think of narration. Most of us forget that music and sounds can also be used very effectively to enhance the learning through an online course. So, the audio component in an eLearning course can be defined as a set of elements of narration, music and sounds used to enhance learning effectiveness.

Where are these 3 elements used? Let us see.

Now Hiring: Flipped Learning Architects

Now Hiring: Flipped Learning Architects | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

After developing several dozen flipped lessons and guiding other teachers to create their own, I'm putting down my tablet and grabbing a bullhorn. It's time for "flippers" to set the record straight -- teachers who want to adopt flipped learning have to start thinking of themselves as architects, not video producers.

 

Knowing that difference is critical to unleashing the instructional power of flipped learning and sustaining a movement that can improve teaching and learning. The differences are simple, yet stark:

Video producers design splashy content. Architects build instructional value.Video producers think about the power of images. Architects think about the power of ideas.Video producers teach subjects. Architects teach students.
