Don Clark says it well.  Online teaching can help you become a better teacher.  This nicely detailed article will tell you how that happens.


 I've been teaching and learning online for 21 years and I'm still learning something new everyday.

AnnaGunder's insight:

Arbetsgrupp utses.

Arbetsgruppen fastställer syfte/mål för gruppen (i.e. väja LMS under tiden då och då) och riktlinjer för processen (öppen, ”transparent” och inkluderande etc.). [Vad förväntas gruppen göra, på vilken tid och vilka principer/ledord ska den jobba enligt.]

Lägga upp en plan för urvalsprocessen (workshops, fokusgrupper m.m.).

Upprätta en kravspecifikation (needs, wants, wishes).

Undersöka fältet och upprätta en shortlist

Testa LMS på shortlist.

Välja en LMS på shortlist.

Mkt bra dokument med mer information under varje punkt. Hands-on med tips och goda råd om t.ex. arbetsgruppens sammansättning och mandat.

How video gaming can be beneficial for the brain

How video gaming can be beneficial for the brain | edutainme | Scoop.it

Video gaming causes increases in the brain regions responsible for spatial orientation, memory formation and strategic planning as well as fine motor skills. This has been shown in a new study conducted at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and Charité University Medicine St. Hedwig-Krankenhaus. The positive effects of video gaming may also prove relevant in therapeutic interventions targeting psychiatric disorders.

Natalia Zhukova's curator insight, November 24, 2013 3:49 AM

I used to think video gaming could only destroy your sense of reality, develop isolation from society, alienation, even depersonalization and loss of identity in which the real self is replaced by virtual, emotions are inhibited and finally you end up with psychiatric disorders. This article changes my approach.

 

Alex Simon's curator insight, December 8, 2013 4:41 PM

i totally agree with this article. i think its really cool someone researched this and found this cool information.

Ella Cooper's curator insight, May 1, 2014 8:11 AM

Thought provoking study that has found a casual link between video gaming and volumetric brain increase. The possibilities for advancements in video gaming therapy for brain disorders could be close with future research.

Educational Games That Really Are Fun

Educational Games That Really Are Fun | edutainme | Scoop.it

It's often been a criticism of many attempts to make MMORPG computer games educational, that when that happens the fun goes. I have to say that it is often the case, but I think Power Up is an exception.

Power up is an educational computer game based around the concept of helping students to understand the need for clean energy. It takes the scenario of a planet ( set in the future) which needs rescuing.

Video Games and Learning

AnnaGunder's insight:

Visst, men varför bara wikipedia? Borde finnas nivåer av källhänvisiningar och "för-dig -som vill-veta-mer" - från wikipedia till vetenskapliga publikationer i böcker och tidskrifter (biblioteksresurser!). Låt spelen öppna för problematiserande av fakta och ifrågasättande av föreställningar - utvecklas från klichéförstärkare till perspektivgivare.
