The number of recent popular press articles heralding a rising trend of digital game use in the classroom has made the team at the Joan Ganz Cooney Center wonder: just how common is this practice?  And further, which teachers are choosing to use digital games in their teaching, what particular goals do they have for that game use, and what kinds of outcomes are they observing among their students?

The Teacher's Guide To Badges In Education | Edudemic

The Teacher's Guide To Badges In Education | Edudemic | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Unfortunately, some students are not motivated by grades. Yes, this includes your brightest kids. Some kids could get an A on any test you give them, so they do not see the need for homework. Why do an hour of work every night when they know they are going to get an A on the test? Now you have a student who gets Fs on all his homework and As on all his tests. It turns into a C average, and he doesn’t care. How do you motivate him to do more or do better? The old-fashioned way – you give him a badge.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Badges are useful tools.  Generate engagement. Visualize assessment. Tools for coaching and encouragement.

edutopia: Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric

edutopia: Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
While many teachers are excited about the maker movement and may even be creating projects for their classrooms, assessment can be puzzling even to veteran classroom teachers. How can teachers prove that deep, rich learning is occurring through making? How do we justify a grade to students and parents alike, especially to the student who "just isn’t good at art"? By crafting a three-part rubric that assesses process, understanding, and product, teachers can rest assured that they are covering all the bases.

Qualitative Formative Assessment Toolkit - Guest Post from Reshan Richards - EdTechTeacher | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Dr. Reshan Richards: "Each of these approaches allows teachers and learner to capture and create moments of learning, excerpts of understanding, and reflections of experience. Let’s pretend to be one of my 5th-grade math students from last year participating in an activity about tessellating patterns. The activity was to figure out what individual shapes, when arranged in a flat pattern with touching sides, formed a closed tesselating patter (a regular tessellation). This activity involved using physical manipulative objects (pattern blocks), a piece of paper to document findings (journal workbook page), and NCTM Illumination’s Tessellation Creator website as resources for engaging in the experience of exploring regular tessellation. Here’s how the QFAT could be applied to this activity with an iPad."

Honor the eyes and brains of your readers: Whitespace

Honor the eyes and brains of your readers:  Whitespace | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Mark Boulton:


“Whitespace,” or “negative space” is the space between elements in a composition. More specifically, the space between major elements in a composition is “macro whitespace.” Micro whitespace, is—yes, you’ve guessed it—the space between smaller elements: between list items, between a caption and an image, or between words and letters. The itty-bitty stuff.

So what does whitespace do?

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This vintage (2007) article explains the importance of whitespace in web design.  When we read online our brains crave easy to scan text that doesn't overload the senses.  It's a basic lesson that every instructional designer and online teacher should take to heart.
