10 Specific Ideas To Gamify Your Classroom - TeachThought

10 Specific Ideas To Gamify Your Classroom - TeachThought | Classroom Activities | Scoop.it

"In today’s classroom, educators are constantly required to mold their teaching methods to give students the best opportunity to succeed. It is not only imperative for students to learn the required material, but also critical that students gain a sense of confidence toward their work, and find motivation to expand their learning.

However, this can be difficult for some students, who may struggle in traditional, lecture-based class styles. For some students, finding the motivation to complete homework or prepare for class can be a constant struggle, especially when every effort is met with a poor grade or frustration from teachers and parents. Therefore, teachers must become more and more creative when motivating students to learn."

The CIA World Factbook is a great encyclopedic source of information about all the countries in the world and a great place for students to find information for the classic country report project.  But have you ever wished that the World Factbook would be linked to the current events and media sources for the country of your choice?  That is exactly what the BBC news has created with their Country Profiles page, an expansion on their regional tabs (such as Africa and Asia).   This is a link worth bookmarking, and one I'll including in tag with  a compilation of the best resources that I've put on this site (IMHO-If you have nominees that aren't on the list, let me know).

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Classroom Activities | Scoop.it
Additionally, using Scoop.it will meet multiple standards (Common Core and NETS-S) across the curriculum. Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning.
