5 Apps for Learning and Media Creation for Elementary Students in the Inclusive Classroom | Creating educational games | Scoop.it

"When using iPads with students, consider apps which allow students opportunities to create media which demonstrates understanding and lets them show what they know and how they feel. This is a very engaging, challenging, and meaningful way for students to learn and for teachers to understand and assess what their students comprehend."

Teaching & Learning - Brain-Based Online Learning Design - Magna Publications | Creating educational games | Scoop.it

Abreena Tompkins, instruction specialist at Surry Community College, has developed a brain-based online course design model based on a meta-analysis of more than 300 articles. In this study, she distilled the following elements of brain-based course design:

Low-risk, nonthreatening learning environment Challenging, real-life, authentic assessments Rhythms, patterns, and cycles Appropriate chunking or grouping Learning as orchestration rather than lecture or facilitation Appropriate level of novelty Appropriately timed breaks and learning periods Purposeful assessments Learning that addresses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners Active processing with mental models The use of universal examples, analogies, and parallel processing

Edutopia Resource Guide: Mastering Online Discussion Board Facilitation

Discussion boards, or threaded discussions, are one of the most commonly used tools in online teaching. Discussion  forums provide the ability for asynchronous discussion to occur over a period of time. The ability to learn asynchronously is one of the primary benefits of online learning. Students are able to reflect upon their ideas before sharing
them with the class, leading to more reflective responses and in-depth learning.

"Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a combination of pedagogy and technique that acknowledges the different levels of needs. UDL uses brain-based research to identify the need for addressing multiple methods of representation, expression and engagement of learners with information and knowledge. It involves instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments."

"We came across four excellent case studies produced by the Joan Ganz Cooney Center, an independent research laboratory that supports research and development in educational digital media technologies."

 

"It is always great to see how teachers are using different technologies in the classroom in unique and inspirational ways. We came across four excellent case studies produced by the Joan Ganz Cooney Center, an independent research laboratory that supports research and development in educational digital media technologies.

 

"The first case study shows Joel Levin, a school technology integrator, using MinecraftEDU with second graders at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in New York City. Joel leads his class through structured game-based scenarios that emphases self-directed learning, collaboration between students, and positive social interactions.

 

"The second case study shows how Ginger Stevens, a 6th grade special-education teacher at Quest2Learn in New York City, utilizes the intentionally game-like environment of her school to maximize learning for students with special needs."
