What we discovered was that there are a lot of parallels between face to face citizenship and digital citizenship, though the biggest differences are based upon the tools we use to communicate.

Why we should all think about the gamification of education

Why we should all think about the gamification of education | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
The educational system as we know it needs a revamp. Actually, a revamp is not enough. The educational system needs to be restructured. A lot of things need to change, and the sooner that happens, the better. Too many students drop out of school, and this isn’t the way to get successful... http://elearningfeeds.com/why-we-should-all-think-about-the-gamification-of-education/

How can teachers use VR in the classroom? | NEO BLOG | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
If you are as old as I am then you will remember the thrill of watching your teacher wheel the TV trolley into the classroom. “Finally”, you thought, “some fun in class!” These days, using multimedia tools is a foregone conclusion for the well-resourced teacher; technology is enabling greater interactivity and engagement between students as well as with the information they are required to learn.

Naturally, the Internet is far and away the richest and most radical change from the days I was a student, and education will, frankly, never be the same again.

Teachers have a plethora of options when it comes to using technology in their lessons. One such technology — older than most — is Virtual Reality (VR).

Stop Wanting And Start Doing: 5 Practices For Building Mental Toughness

Stop Wanting And Start Doing: 5 Practices For Building Mental Toughness | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

I’ve been asked on a number of occasions the “secret” to harnessing mental toughness to overcome adversity. The “secret,” I tell them, isn’t a secret but a fact that they don’t want to hear because it’s simple. But simple isn’t easy. That secret is this: make a decision and go with it.

That’s it.

I remember waiting for Hell Week to begin in BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training) and students asking the instructors—in a somewhat uncommon cordial setting—what the secret was to making it through five and a half days of constant, nonstop activity. Here’s what the instructors said, “The secret to making it through BUD/S, is knowing you’re going to make it through BUD/S.”

It’s belief.

You need to believe that you’re the type of person who has the skill and will to make that goal happen, and then make it happen. Don’t worry about what’s right and don’t wait for the perfect opportunity because “perfect” doesn’t exist—it’s an excuse to procrastinate.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, April 12, 6:22 PM
Augmented reality–a technology that uses a trigger image to superimpose digital content over a user’s view of the real world–is growing in popularity and accessibility, and it holds a wealth of potential for education. Often described as “QR codes on steroids,” the technology offers new and exciting ways for students to interact with lessons, said Jeff Peterson, an instructional technologist in the Lamar Consolidated ISD in Texas. Peterson presented a TCEA 2017 session on augmented reality’s application in classrooms.

Girls Make Games Teams Up with PlayStation for Game Development Summer Camp


SAN MATEO, CA, March 7, 2017 - As part of its continued effort to increase gender diversity in the gaming industry, Girls Make Games (GMG) is joining forces with PlayStation to host its next game development summer camp for girls ages 11-14.
“Numerous reports have shed light on the growing number of female gamers, but less than 15 percent of the games industry workforce is women,” notes Laila Shabir, CEO and founder of Girls Make Games.

“This is not because girls or women are not interested in making games—GMG’s growth proves otherwise. We’re thrilled about working with PlayStation to encourage and empower more young women to learn about and pursue careers in technology and game development.”

Teen Girls Are Gaining a Foothold in VR Before the Gender Gap Can Keep Them Out

Teen Girls Are Gaining a Foothold in VR Before the Gender Gap Can Keep Them Out | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Whenever VRLA hits the L.A. Convention Center, it brings with it a wave of excitement and anticipation for the future of a nascent medium. Part trade show for virtual reality makers and part fan con for virtual reality users, this weekend's iteration had everything from virtual meditation to a mixed-reality Easter egg hunt. But off the expo floor, inside a small room on an upper level of the convention center, a group of teenage girls in matching T-shirts working on large, powerful computers may have been the most shining example of VR's bright future.


"As girls ourselves, we think it's super important that we're all playing with this fun world," says Georgia Van Cuylenburg, with a hint of an Australian accent in her enthusiastic voice. Van Cuylenberg is a founding member of Girls Make VR, a program formed through VRLA, which aims to train girls between the ages of 13 and 18 on how to create virtual reality. Girls Make VR launched at last summer's VRLA event and, so far, it has been a success. Van Cuylenberg notes that some of the students here had been a part of that inaugural workshop. This time around, there are a couple young boys in the class too, but really it's designed for female students.

Video games is something teachers fear to use because of their lack of awareness of the new technological tools being implemented around the world, this mostly happens with older teachers from the past generation who tend to be more traditional. But just imagine being able to teach your students through a game known worldwide: Minecraft, A great game which combines the art of storytelling, fine arts, music, video production, and appropriate player engagement to create an immersive, memorable experience of learning. It might be hard at first but after you get the hang of it, it becomes at easy as pie to incorporate the game into your classes.

"Learning by doing and making; the virtue of combining very old and very new ideas"

"Learning by doing and making; the virtue of combining very old and very new ideas" | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

I had often done well academically. But to my surprise what came to mind were not the many hours spent in classrooms, but rather experiences like being stuck on a mountain in a blizzard with failing light, or working with a community group to clear some derelict land. These were the moments when I had learned profound new insights. In each case, my lessons had been gained because I had had to solve a real world problem, with others, and with something at stake. It didn’t take long to notice that all of these features were roughly opposite in spirit to the policies we were implementing, and also opposite in spirit to the usual ways in which learning happens in schools and universities.

From cloud computing to virtual reality, technology is transforming the traditional learning path

Kenia Gonzalez's curator insight, April 11, 1:21 AM
Learning outside of the classroom may have different opinions. I believe that this is something that helps but at the same time I have a hard time learning by myself in certain subjects. Like when it comes to like History class I need someone to help me get a better understanding of the subject. When it comes to math class I can teach myself the subject just by reading and going through the steps. As technology is evolving it is transforming the traditional learning path, which is not so good in a way because I feel like everyone will be more stuck on technology and socialize less. “But the broader trend is away from traditional classroom-based teaching: online distance learning has mushroomed in recent years, enabling students to gain both work-based qualifications and full degrees without attending a physical institution.” You can have the ability to not attend college at home without spending so much money on college tuition.

Why the CIA uses board games to train its officers | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Dungeons and Dragons, Pokémon card games and role-playing games are more than entertainment -- they're inspiration for the CIA.
David Clopper, senior collection analyst with 16 years' experience at the CIA, also serves as a game maker for the agency. From card games to board games, Clopper creates games to train CIA staffers including intelligence officers and political analysts for real-world situations.
"Gaming is part of the human condition. Why not take advantage of that and incorporate into the way we learn?" Clopper said Sunday at a games-themed panel discussion at the South by Southwest Interactive technology festival. Clopper and other CIA officers discussed how the agency uses games to teach strategy, intelligence gathering and collaboration.
