Scott Nicholson: Meaningful Gamification: Motivating through Play instead of Manipulating through Re

Gamification is the use of game design concepts to create a layer on a real world setting. Typical gamification focuses on the use of rewards like points and badges to change the behavior of users, which can cause long-term damage to intrinsic motivation. Meaningful gamification is the use of design concepts from games and play to help people find personal connections to a real-world setting.

We Want Our Daughter to Love the Sciences. Should We Keep Her Away From Princesses? | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
When my 4-year-old told me the other day that she was “ready for princesses,” part of me died. Not just because the day had finally arrived when that virulent meme had infected her, but also because of how utterly powerless I was to contain it. Let me be clear: These...

School Climate Improvement Resource Package | Safe Supportive Learning

School Climate Improvement Resource Package | Safe Supportive Learning | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
Students learn best when they are in environments in which they feel safe, supported, challenged, and accepted. Research shows that when schools and districts focus on improving school climate, students are more likely to engage in the curriculum, develop positive relationships, and demonstrate positive behaviors.

To help schools and districts improve school climate, the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments is in the process of developing the School Climate Improvement Resource Package (Resource Package).  The Resource Package will include a variety of resources to meet a range of needs among stakeholders interested in improving school climate. The first item for release is the Quick Guide (see below).  The other items will be released in the Spring and Summer of 2016.

Amy Slatter's curator insight, May 5, 8:08 AM
Visual learning really helps, especially in Junior Secondary..
Sample Student's curator insight, May 5, 5:16 PM
Evolving from the days of the printing press, mass dissemination of information was, until the mid 20th Century primarily achieved using text. Whereas video, sound and movies, and images emerged as powerful social messages, within the classroom context the almost-singular focus on text as a means to communicate continued. And the means to create and disseminate these messages were retained in the hands of the knowledgeable creators.
With the advent of the web and its own evolution, we are no longer reliant on print media. We only have to consider the ongoing demise of print media companies, newspapers, journals and magazines to understand the overwhelming social movement to multimodal communication on the web. And at the spearhead of the movement is the capacity of the ordinary citizen to create the same resources as have always been created by the experts.
If we do not embrace this movement in formal education we are at risk of widening the divide between the visual learning that is more common in informal education, and what occurs in the classroom.
But beyond this even is the power of visual thinking, the use of graphic organisers to support and transform thinking. This resource demonstrates some of he common, and some of the less common.
