Infographic: How Gaming is Affecting Our Culture and Health | education | Scoop.it

The current state of the United States gaming industry might surprise you. Your little brother isn't the only one playing, and parents might actually approve. With 58 percent of Americans playing video games, the types of players and the potential benefits they're reaping span far and wide.

After spending time with my family this past week, which includes 5 boys and 2 girls under the age of 10 - I realized just how addicting video games have become. They each had their own iPad or iPhone to play games on - which meant they were all playing seperately rather than together. It made the whole family experience feel a bit disjointed...

We continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice' | education | Scoop.it

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes?

Most of the world’s curriculum and assessment systems are based around fact recall rather than actually demonstrating that you have learned something and can deploy it within a problem-solving situation.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives / San Francisco, California's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.
