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.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

SOS Explorer™ (SOSx) uses the NOAA-developed Terraviz™ visualization engine to create an interactive Earth for a flat screen display including those projected on walls, computers, and large displays, providing teachers, students, and the public access to a library of selected Science On a Sphere® datasets and movies. The visualizations show information provided by satellites, ground observations and computer models and rapidly animate through real-time global data. In addition, tools included in the application allow users to zoom into, probe, and graph the data, as well as add supplementary material including websites, videos, pictures, and placemarks. In order to make the product more accessible for teachers, lesson plans and pre-programmed tours through standards-relevant topics are provided.

The FCC Broadband Report You Didn’t Hear About

The FCC Broadband Report You Didn’t Hear About | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
The FCC Broadband Report You Didn’t Hear About
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

f you follow broadband policy, you probably know that last week the FCC released its annual Broadband Progress Report (often referred to as the Section 706 Report) in which it concludes (erroneously) that broadband is not being deployed in a reasonable and timely manner.

But did you hear about the other broadband report issued by the FCC last week, the one demonstrating how deployment and performance of broadband in the United States is far outpacing European broadband? Didn’t think so.

In conjunction with the well-known Section 706 Report that reviews the progress of broadband deployment in the U.S., Congress also requires the Commission to prepare an international comparison of broadband. While there was much fanfare surrounding the adoption of the 706 Report at the FCC’s public meeting last week, a separate report with the required international broadband comparison was released by the International Bureau without comment on Friday evening.
