Gamification or Game-Based Learning? LearnDash

Gamification or Game-Based Learning?  LearnDash | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

If you have been around the elearning world long enough you have probably heard of using games in learning.

You have probably heard of gamification.

Chances are you have also heard of game-based learning.

In the situations where you heard these terms being used you likely thought that they were referring to the same thing. However, to some people these three are entirely different.

Sure there are some overlapping features among each one, but the argument is that there are defining characteristics that apply to each individually.

To help demonstrate the differences between these three, Upside Learning has created a nifty infographic using the popular game “hopscotch” as an example.

12 Ways to use Inside Out to Teach SEL, STEM, and Life’s Ups & Downs

12 Ways to use Inside Out to Teach SEL, STEM, and Life’s Ups & Downs | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

Now that you’ve seen the movie (or even if you haven’t), below are 12 ways teachers and parents can help kids extend and apply what they saw in the movie to use as a springboard to teach about the brain, Social Emotional Learning (SEL), and life in general.

In his book Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child, John Gottman describes how parents and teachers can serve as emotion coaches. “Much like athletic coaches, they teach their children [and students] strategies to deal with life’s ups and downs,” said Gottman.

This concept of coaching is key, as it puts our kids – not parents or teachers – at the center. As I watched the movie, I thought of times how tempting it can be to coax the emotion (e.g. trying to pull joy out of an otherwise upsetting circumstance) rather than coach it (honor the emotion and talk about it as Gottman advises).

The All-Encompassing Makerspace Shopping List

The All-Encompassing Makerspace Shopping List | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
“Sorry, that’s a great idea, but we can’t build it here.”

That’s my nightmare. A student in the STEAM Room, our student Makerspace, approaching me with a brilliant project concept requiring some reasonable tool we didn’t even consider. Of course, there are worse nightmares involving our reciprocating saw or our drill press, but those scenarios are easier to plan around.

How do you come up with an all-encompassing list of tools and materials that will facilitate every student’s wildest dreams, while staying within budget and within space constraints? How can you avoid stifling creativity when you haven’t even polled your students for their interest areas? How do you know when your Makerspace is complete?

When you’re putting in long hours and working relentlessly towards a purpose that you’re passionate about, burnout is inevitable. Entrepreneurs know this; it’s part of the process, and everyone has their own strategy for coping.

Four Lessons from “Inside Out” to Discuss With Kids

Four Lessons from “Inside Out” to Discuss With Kids | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

The new Pixar film has moved viewers young and old to take a look inside their own minds...but perhaps its greatest achievement has been this: It has moved viewers young and old to take a look inside their own minds. As you likely know by now, much of the film takes place in the head of an 11-year-old girl named Riley, with five emotions—Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust—embodied by characters who help Riley navigate her world. The film has some deep things to say about the nature of our emotions—which is no coincidence, as the GGSC’s founding faculty director, Dacher Keltner, served as a consultant on the film, helping to make sure that, despite some obvious creative liberties, the film’s fundamental messages about emotion are consistent with scientific research.

Those messages are smartly embedded within Inside Out‘s inventive storytelling and mind-blowing animation; they enrich the film without weighing it down. But they are conveyed strongly enough to provide a foundation for discussion among kids and adults alike. Some of the most memorable scenes in the film double as teachable moments for the classroom or dinner table.

11 lessons I learned from Pixar's Inside Out - Today's Parent

11 lessons I learned from Pixar's Inside Out - Today's Parent | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
A toddler careening to a halt at an electrical cord, a preschooler screaming at the top of her lungs when her ice cream cone topples, a girl on the brink of puberty who suddenly gets all moody and silent. What exactly is going on in our kids’ brains that governs their moods and responses?

The latest animated Disney Pixar movie Inside Out attempts to get to the bottom of this eternal parenting question. And, in doing so, the screenwriters have created a parenting manual for those of us who are blindly making our way through the parenting landscape, while trying to hold on to our ever-changing children.

Lots of potential for teachers here too!

A social studies teacher who was near retirement showed up at one of my educational planning sessions for a new classroom building. I asked him about the social studies classroom of the future. At first he hemmed and hawed, but after some prodding, he said, “Do you really want to know what I think?”

I was all ears.
