Game Over: 3 Common Mistakes in Gamification

Game Over: 3 Common Mistakes in Gamification | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

It sounds like a no-brainer: Getting learners excited about training by throwing in a game-based element. But just because you offer something other than Powerpoint doesn’t automatically mean gamification will be a success. Just like any other training method, learners can lose motivation... http://elearningfeeds.com/game-over-3-common-mistakes-in-gamification/

Competency-Based Education Programs versus Traditional Data Management (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
  • Competency-based education programs challenge traditional data management approaches across the academic institution because they defy conventional notions of time in relation to fixed-length terms, synchronous delivery, and student-faculty interactions.
  • Initial results from a study of colleges implementing CBE highlight short- and long-term solutions to timing challenges and emerging practices that can help ensure CBE program success.
  • Among the "not so bad" practices were to ensure that short-term fixes don't delay work on long-term solutions to CBE challenges and that key stakeholders be enlisted to support the required policy, practice, and system changes.

Six Key Content Curation Insights Emerging from the Leaked NY Times Executive Summary

Six Key Content Curation Insights Emerging from the Leaked NY Times Executive Summary | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, May 21, 2014 4:53 AM



The leaked New York Times memo of less than a week ago is making the round on the Internet, as it touches upon many of the key issues and opportunities any news journalism operation is facing today.


From my personal viewpoint the most interesting aspect of this lengthy 97-page memo is how much curation, news and content curation specifically, are part of the future view being described in it.


Since, even trying read the in-depth curated version of the leaked NY report done by the excellent Nieman Lab it may take you in excess of 30 minutes, I have extracted and highlighted here below only the points that are specifically relevant to curators and to anyone researching the future of content curation within the context of news and journalism.

Here, six key points to pay strong attention to:


  1. ...resurfacing archival content. The report cites this passage: "“We can be both a daily newsletter and a library — offering news every day, as well as providing context, relevance and timeless works of journalism.” 


  2. ...restructuring arts and culture stories that remain relevant long after they are initially published into guides for readers.


  3.  ...consider tools to make it easier for journalists, and maybe even readers, to create collections and repackage the content.


  4.  allow readers to easily follow certain topics or columnists.


  5. better tagging of the info and content being published.


  6. focus on the less glamorous work of creating tools, templates and permanent fixes that cumulatively can have a bigger impact by saving our digital journalists time and elevating the whole report.



Nieman Lab curated report of the NY leaked Executive Summary document: http://www.niemanlab.org/2014/05/the-leaked-new-york-times-innovation-report-is-one-of-the-key-documents-of-this-media-age/

"Instructional Designer" vs. "Learning Designer" | Technology and Learning @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The reason that I like “Learning” rather than “Instructional” is that “learning” feels like a more inclusive term. We strive to be a learning organization, and we understand that learning occurs for everyone involved in the teaching process and can happen during non-teaching times.   

What do you think?  What would you rather be called, and why?

Chris Kluwe wants to look into the future of sports and think about how technology will help not just players and coaches, but fans. Here the former NFL punter envisions a future in which augmented reality will help people experience sports as if they are directly on the field -- and maybe even help them see others in a new light, too.

Teachers as Technology Trailblazers: 3 Warning Signs That Your LMS Is Preventing Learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Many schools and districts have opted to use a Learning Management Systems, sometimes called "LMS" for short. These tools serve as online hubs for teachers and students to share files, feedback, and grades. Examples include Blackboard, Haiku, and Edmodo. And while these tools can enable anytime, anywhere learning for students, they must be used carefully. In some cases, this tool can actually negatively impact the kinds of learning that students experience.
