eBook: How Gamification Reshapes Learning

eBook: How Gamification Reshapes Learning | Academic English | Scoop.it

Dedicated Learning Professionals and Educators across the globe were, until recently, desperately seeking for ways, methods, and techniques to engage employees and students in the learning process. Surprisingly enough, no one would think that games was the answer. After all, games tend to increase learners’ natural desire for competition, goal achievement, and genuine self-expression, while they also promote interactivity, have rules, a quantifiable outcome, and can be colorful, appealing, and extremely realistic.

Monty Bell's curator insight, March 6, 10:23 AM

Most of this we already know, but the data helps clarify for educators the need to look forward and how tech is woven into what we do, how we teach and how we learn. 

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, March 7, 10:21 AM

Interesting ideas about where education is headed!  Keeping up with the technology may be difficult but necessary.

Whose English? A window into written academic ELF

Whose English? A window into written academic ELF | Academic English | Scoop.it

Ray Carey and colleagues are "compiling a corpus of these English-language examiners’ statements submitted in 2011 & 2012 to six University of Helsinki faculties. We finished this task last month, ending up with 402,0135 words of text (the WrELFA corpus overall has passed 800,000 words since my last update). During that process, Ruut compiled figures from each of the faculties on how many examiners’ statements were submitted and what language they were written in. This post looks at where English stands in the examination process of one of the top research universities in Europe."

Interesting infographic and research.

Unfortunately, many public schools are not up to par with technology and innovative teachers!   I have been writing many grants and recently race to the top  Digital 5&6 initiatives.

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom | Academic English | Scoop.it

That we have evolved our favorite forms of communication is obvious without more than simply watching our students walk through the hallways. It would be easy to demonize social media and each medium that it provides for human interaction. But it would be educationally valuable to embrace it, turning it into an opportunity for our students to develop an appreciation for the advanced cognitive skills they employ on a daily basis. Why not study the highly visual communication models connecting the thoughts that mean the most to them with the social networks where they live their lives?

I really like that last paragraph. Nice article with some valuable points about visual communication.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 8, 3:15 PM

Visual literacy matters


Visual literacy is the ability to:

  1. Process and make meaning of information presented in an image.
  2. Communicate our own ideas through principles of design.
  3. Create our own messages that capture our visual thinking in a way that conceptualizes problems to given solutions.
Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 28, 9:00 PM

Visual Literacy has a new emphasis in the Australian Curriculum. This is certainly a good article to give ideas for embedding some good quality practice in digital learning.
