Useful guide to games that could be used in teaching. Searching limited to one category at a time though so not easy to refine the search. Very US orientated and aimed  mostly at school pupils rather than students or adults. Good for getting overview of various games and possible uses.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | EducationTidBits | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 23, 2014 7:20 PM

Leading is about power and how it flows. When we are conduits and let power flow through us, it works and allows others to take responsibility. It is not so much about giving them responsibly and about creating environments where responsibility is taken.

 

I compare it to teaching and learning. I cannot learn for students. They take responsibility for their learning. It does not mean I shirk responsibility in my teaching, rather I use it differently than the expert at the front of the class, with lights down, allowing children to do worksheets projected onto a screen while he checks a Twitter feed.

Slowing Down to Learn: Mindful Pauses That Can Help Student Engagement

Slowing Down to Learn: Mindful Pauses That Can Help Student Engagement | EducationTidBits | Scoop.it
One way to promote engagement and learning is to consciously create pauses throughout the day. We can create a sense of spaciousness in our classroom by slowing down the pace of our speech and punctuating our lessons with silence. Introduced well, this practice can improve classroom discourse.

Engagement is front and center in implementation of UDL. Great to see this sort of realization about allowing time to process and to "breathe". This is especially important for students with learning challenges. Way to go!

Portal Training's curator insight, March 21, 2015 12:53 AM

Without realising it, the way we speak is often the one barrier to effective communication that is overlooked.  People with a large vocabulary and a more articulate speech pattern seem to talk over the top of those who may have a limited vocabulary.   This in no way means one is better than the other - communication should never become an us and them competition, it should merely highlight the need for greater consideration on both sides of the conversation to ensure there is understanding on all levels.  Awareness and a little prior though and planning into what you want to say might be helpful.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, March 1, 2015 9:23 AM
Social and emotional learning is at the heart of good teaching, but as standards and testing requirements consume classroom time and divert teachers' focus, these critical skills often get sidelined. In Sharing the Blue Crayon, Mary Anne Buckley shows teachers how to incorporate social and emotional learning into a busy day and then extend these skills to literacy lessons for young children. Through simple activities such as read-alouds, sing-alongs, murals, and performances, students learn how to get along in a group, empathize with others, develop self-control, and give and receive feedback, all while becoming confident readers and writers. - See more at: http://www.stenhouse.com/html/sharing-the-blue-crayon.htm?r=nb150227n#sthash.Qr6HT7Zg.dpuf
