The Pedagogies in Game Based Learning: A Case Study of Teacher Attitudes & Perceptions | AvatarGeneration

The Pedagogies in Game Based Learning: A Case Study of Teacher Attitudes & Perceptions | AvatarGeneration | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
AvatarGenerations' Editor built a Serious Game using a platform called ThinkingWorlds to showcase the pedagogies in games and to investigate how teacher attitudes and perceptions changed before and after playing the game. The objective of the game was to provide a tailored contextual experience in a school environment that would have a positive affect on preconceptions, and change negative attitudes towards the role of serious games in the classroom. The game was designed to allow teachers to experience a range of educational activities, each built upon a clear and established pedagogy:
 
Gagné’s (1985) ‘Nine Events of Instruction’, Mayer’s (2002) cognitive theory of multimedia learning, Lave and Wenger’s situational learning theory (Lave and Wenger 1991), Kolb (1984) experiential learning theory and Skinner’s (1954) operant conditioning theory.

Top 100 Learning Game Resources | Upside Learning Blog

Top 100 Learning Game Resources | Upside Learning Blog | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
When writing the whitepaper about Casual games, I did a fair bit of research and looked at several hundred web links. While doing so, I documented a few of the better ones. I’d been mulling posting these to the blog. So here they are – a Top 100 Learning Game Resource list. If you are already developing learning games, these links will broaden your horizons, as they did mine. If you are contemplating beginning – it might help to look at links that interest you to get some grounding ideas.

Interesting game which tests your knowledge of plagiarism. Done very simple but being right on the spot of the problem. This is a link to the game, but if you go one step back than prior to the game you have some nice tutorials.

Free Tools to Incorporate Game-Based Learning

Free Tools to Incorporate Game-Based Learning | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

As I work with teachers to implement game-based learning (GBL), they are always looking for any free tools that exist. While some are willing to pay for iPad game apps or using the Kinect, these tools often cost money. Luckily, there are many tools out there that are free and that teachers could use in the classroom as soon as tomorrow. Some of these tools are not only the games themselves, but also lesson plans and ideas for using the game in the classroom. Here are some of my favorite free GBL tools.
