Inventive Games That Teach Kids About Empathy and Social Skills

Inventive Games That Teach Kids About Empathy and Social Skills | community development | Scoop.it
Play is nothing if not social. Games organize play, allowing us to wrangle it and use it to experiment with the world. When we play games, more often than not, it's us under the microscope. But there's a trend in design toward video games that build social skills and encourage players to reflect on themselves and their relationships. Here are a few games that do just that.

Graphene is the thinnest material known. But it is exceedingly strong, light and flexible. It is exceptional at conducting electricity and heat, and at absorbing and emitting light.


"Graphene is the same sort of material, like steel or plastic or silicon that can really change society," says Dr. Ferrari, who leads a band of about 40 graphene researchers at the University of Cambridge.

Half an Hour: A Few Words on ePortfolios

Half an Hour: A Few Words on ePortfolios | community development | Scoop.it

On the one hand, the portfolio may focus predominately on learning and reflection. Such a portfolio may come to resemble a student's journal or sketchbook.  On the other hand, the portfolio may be used primarily for evaluation and assessment, becoming more a documentation of achievement that a personal workspace. As Barrett notes, the former model focuses on the ePortfolio as process, while the latter contemplates the ePortfolio as product.

flea palmer's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:32 AM

Interesting post by Stephen Downes about the different functions of e-portfolios. Downes believes that in the future students will need to manage their online learning records and products, while linking to a range of services such as YouTube and Flickr. He links to an interesting project at University of Mary Washington which encourages students to create their own 'web presence' independently from any service providers. 

Luis Miguel Claudio's curator insight, October 30, 2013 8:29 AM

Self-Organised Learning Environment (SOLEs) in an English School : an example of transformative pedagogy?

Self-Organised Learning Environment (SOLEs) in an English School : an example of transformative pedagogy? | community development | Scoop.it

The SOLE concept, although flexible, has the potential to offer a divergent, radical transformative pedagogy. This sits somewhat uncomfortably alongside more convergent approaches which position the learner as subservient to the curriculum, with the task of merely mastering subject matter prescribed by the teacher. However, what is notable from this analysis is that transformative pedagogy seems to be positioned alongside, rather than in conflict with, the dominant educational framework.

21st Cent. Learners's curator insight, November 3, 2013 5:40 AM

I'm torn by this. I'm sure that children come back with lots of information from the net, but how well is this translated into deeper understandings? Skillfully facilitated plenaries must be crucial.  Maybe a juxtaposition of this with Hattie's findings on the key features of effective teaching would be interesting?  I'd love to see SOLEs in action.
