Santee Sch Dist's insight:

From CUE Up!: Games can’t do all the teaching, but they can engage students to start thinking. At least that’s how MIT’sEducation Arcade and the Learning Games Network are approaching their new free game Quandary. The two groups designed the video game to teach ethics while aligning with Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts for third through eighth graders. Quandary approaches the broad topic of ethics by helping students aged 8 to 14 understand how to take a different perspective and learn how to empathize. In the game, Earth residents have colonized the faraway planet of Braxos. The player is the captain of the mission and has to make important decisions about survival in the new world that will affect his or her crew and the residents of Braxos. The game currently has three episodes that follow a similar pattern. The player learns a little about a problem on the planet through a comic-strip narrative. He or she then interviews different characters and organizes their statements into facts, solutions and other opinions. After accurately categorizing various kinds of statements, the player presents characters with different solutions or facts to dig into the issue deeper, gathering more information. Through play, the issue becomes more complex, and the game shifts. If the captain fails to thoroughly investigate the problem, he or she will miss valuable pieces of information. After the fact-finding stage, the player makes a recommendation to a council back on Earth and justifies why he or she is urging that course of action. The player also has to predict how each character will react to the decision, further testing his or her ability to take perspectives and show empathy. Ultimately, the game will show the player the outcome his or her decision achieved and how it affected the colony.

Mapping Media to the Common Core with iPads

Classroom 2.0 LIVE webinar September 14, 2013 Wes Fryer: Mapping Media to the Common Core with iPads

Santee Sch Dist's insight:

Classroom 2.0 LIVE webinar September 14, 2013 Wes Fryer: Mapping Media to the Common Core with iPads
Digital literacy today means much more than searching the Internet and using Microsoft Office. To be digitally literate, teachers as well as students need to be able to create and share online a variety of different multimedia products. These media products can be "mapped" to your curriculum, and if you're in a Common Core state in the United States, to the Common Core State Standards. Interactive Writing, Narrated Art, 5 Photo Stories, Narrated Slideshows, Screencasts, Quick Edit Videos, and eBooks are a few of the media products learners should be able to create and safely share online. In this session, we'll view different examples of student media products and learn about tools and strategies for helping teachers become digitally literate as "media mappers." We'll also explore how librarians and instructional coaches can use the "Mapping Media to the Curriculum" website as a roadmap to help teachers and students create media products as assignments for class and as artifacts in digital portfolios.
