Merging VR and Blended Learning

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, June 11, 12:25 PM

I saw this advertised on my Facebook feed, and found it rather clever. I think this is a cool step in integrating educational games for kids while blending virtual reality and reality together. It's a different concept that I hadn't seen in quite the same way before.  

 

This appears to be a Kickstarter-type project, so check out the page, and see if it's something that you think will be good. My son is a little too old for this sort of thing, but I can see how in time, some of the games could be extended for older kids and teens, as well as adults. 

 

This is a cool way to use an iPad or mobile device for educational purposes.

Sommige verhalen laten zich goed vertellen door gebruik te maken van een tijdlijn. Neatline heeft als basis het open source framework Omeka, vergelijkbaar met WordPress, en is een plugin. Dat zal dus wel in eigen database geïnstalleerd moeten worden. Mooie applicatie.

GIANFRANCO MARINI's curator insight, December 16, 1:40 AM

Software di uso libero che combina l'uso di mappe, anche storiche, e di strumenti per creare timeline colo risultato di consentire la realizzazione di storie e/o presentazioni molto efficaci.

 

Utile strumento per la didattica e la pratica dello storytelling.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, November 6, 8:57 PM

Justine is just a hair older than me, and started at an older age than me, but her story is similar to mine going to grad school in the last few years. I don't regret going to grad school, and hope I can get to do my PhD eventually (time and money are preventing it right now). But it's so fantastic to read about someone who is part of my generation who rediscovered a way to get involved with a STEM-related career at a later age. Just proves you are never too old to learn! I love this story because I can relate to it so well. Read it! It's really good. 

--techcommgeekmom

Terri Rice's curator insight, November 7, 12:35 PM

Danielle is right. This story by Justine Bateman is similar to many of us older women trying to get degrees and find our way back into the workforce. Im in my mid-fifties and Im working on my Master's. It is very tiring and frustrating to ask a question and have a blank look stare back at you. Honestly, finding a way to communicate with other generations is very challenging. I would love to develop a forum for women of all ages and pursuits to come together and share their stories, encouragements, and failures so the rest of us could know we are not alone. But Im still learning how to find my way around this technical stuff. Bless you, Danielle for sharing this story.

Critical Thinking at BHCC's curator insight, October 30, 11:16 AM

            This topic shows the benefits of video games today. They help kids with brain injuries or a disorder. They can also help the brain to repair itself after surgery has been done on the brain. Personally, I think that it's great that we have video games. I also think that video games should be at hospitals to help children develop a technological brain, in this sense it means they will learn how to operate technology in their older years
