Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 30, 8:17 PM

As teachers what can we do to make our classes more exciting for students? We know that many will sit in front of a computer or game console and play for hours, and when they do not succeed the first time, or the tenth time or the fiftieth time they keep trying. How do we get them to perservere in the classroom when they are not successful? This post explores this, providing five "secrets of game design" that might make a difference in your classroom. The five secrets are listed below but click through to the post to learn more about them.

* The Appointment Dynamic: Be Here At This Time, Get a Prize

* The Failure Dynamic: Fail Early, Fail Often

* The Flexibility Dynamic: Provide Multiple Paths to Success

* The Progression Dynamic: Scaffold and Recognize Progress

* The Construction Dynamic: Build Something That Matters

Cindy Riley Klages's curator insight, January 30, 9:07 PM

Run your class like a game designer, paying attention to the following "dynamics":  The Appointment Dynamic, the Failure Dynamic, the Flexibility Dynamic, the Progression Dynamic, and the Construction Dynamic.

The economic threat to cities isn't gentrification; it's the opposite

The economic threat to cities isn't gentrification; it's the opposite | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Many urban neighborhoods are places of concentrated poverty, and it's killing opportunity in the US.

 

American cities are growing, and as they grow, they're adding lots of high-poverty neighborhoods. Nearly three times as many "high-poverty" census tracts existed in 2010 as in 1970.  That's unsettling on its face but even more so when you see the havoc a poor neighborhood can wreak on a resident's chances at a good life. Forget gentrification — this is a bigger problem. 

 

The chart above tallies up the people living in these neighborhoods in 1970 and 2010. What it shows is that the number of people living in high-poverty neighborhoods — those with poverty rates of 30 percent or more — has roughly doubled since 1970. That's because these neighborhoods of concentrated poverty have a tendency to stay that way, even while new ones sprout up.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, Today, 8:58 PM

Well  we did see it coming, moving from traditional text book and black board learning we migrated to E-Learning where we used the Desktop and the Laptop, and then we are now moving on to M-Learning! Sure, my children use Whats app to share notes and homework questions, so why not M-Learning? My only concern is that the smaller screen size of the mobile phone might cause some damage to the eye-sight, but then wait, aren't we forgetting the Tablet, or the Phablet? I would like to argue that Tab-Learning too has changed the future of E-Learning too!

How Domestic Violence Affects Children

How Domestic Violence Affects Children | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"...Children who are raised in a violent household learn early on that no one can be trusted.  It can also destroy their courage to find that someone they love and should be able to trust.  These kids that are being exposed to violent acts in their own home live in fear and are  always on guard, waiting for something else terrible to happen.
 

Younger kids are particularly vulnerable in feeling anxious and fearful at all times. They have no understanding of what triggered the violent acts; therefore, they can never feel completely safe.  A constant state of worry encompasses their lives, as they grow to believe that their mother, siblings, and even themselves’ are always in danger of being hurt.
 

As they grow surrounded by domestic violence, these kids become more guarded and secretive in their outside world.  Shame takes over as they now live with the fear of teachers and friends both finding out what is happening in their home.  To most, they will appear to be perfectly normal, albeit shy kids, but, inside, their thoughts and feelings are in constant turmoil.
 

The need to blame will grip children who are living in the shadow of domestic violence.  Some will become protective of their mother and believe that the pain inflicted on her is somehow their fault, while others will direct anger at her for allowing the abuse to continue.  Rage, humiliation, guilt, and embarrassment are not uncommon emotions displayed by kids in abusive households...."
