TED Daphne Bavelier: Your brain on video games

I found this a really interesting talk on research into how fast-paced video games affect the brain. I appreciate the research is in its early stages but it does seem to offer some promise for the development of engaging games that can have positive therapeutic or educational effects. It's just really nice to watch a talk on games that does not just fall into one of the two polarised camps and actually attempts to make a case based on research.

Tappestry learning app

Tappestry learning app | eLearning and mLearning weekly | Scoop.it

Ever since I saw Chad Udell's talk at mLearn this year in San Jose I have tried to regularly use Tappestry on my mobile. It is a knowledge sharing tool and allows people to enter information about what they’ve learned so that they can store, share and then later retrieve it. I think the concept is a great one but time will tell if it attracts a critical mass of users.

Shimon Schocken: The self-organizing computer course

Another great talk on self-directed learning through a MOOC (often with community support) which also demos a great tablet based discovery/adaptive approach to teaching maths. The whole talk serves as a critique of the test obsessed formal education system. The more I watch talks like this the more I'm convinced formal education is on the cusp of a profound shift in philosophy and approach.
