What’s the Difference Between Games and Gamification?

What’s the Difference Between Games and Gamification? | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it

Perhaps the best way to think about games in education is not to automatically call everything that looks like fun a “learning game.” Lumping all digital game approaches together makes no more sense than a toddler’s inclination to call every four-legged animal a “doggie.”

Game interest is definitely on the upswing in K-12 and higher education. It seems almost cyclical: every several years, almost in sync with the acceptance of new technologies (such as multimedia CD-ROM, then online, then mobile), there’s a surge of activity with games in education.

How Can Educational Data Mining and Learning Analytics Enhance Education Infographic

How Can Educational Data Mining and Learning Analytics Enhance Education Infographic | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it
How Can Data Mining and Analytics Enhance Education Infographic answers how can educational data mining & learning analytics improve and personalize education.
Jarrod Johnson's insight:

Data analytics will be the next big event in secondary education. However, we must recognise that this is what great teachers have been doing in the classroom for decades...identify the needs of students, track progress of individuals and classroom trends of understanding, give feedback within an appropriate period of time, correct mistakes and encourage learning.

 

The big difference now is that this can be applied across the whole school, so everyone in the school community can be aware of how each student is progressing along their learning pathway.

30 Incredible Ways Technology Will Change Education By 2028
Jarrod Johnson's insight:

This is an amazing look at technology and education and brings together some really good insights and ideas. I think that some of the dates will be out, in that some of the concepts will occur far earlier than predicated, whilst others may be left by the wayside as society and education changes tact to accommodate new innovations. However, I predict that this will always be a flaw in predications. Overall a great summation of what is current, trending and possible.

Imagining an Age of MOOCs | berfrois

Imagining an Age of MOOCs | berfrois | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it

Rather, MOOCs are concrete ties shared among students and universities in a widely distributed transaction—and where multiple institutions become involved, MOOCs will be common investments, perhaps the most visible such connections across levels (general vs. elite, public vs. private) that have ever existed. They draw people of drastically different states of life and environments, and institutions like Harvard and San José State, into one another’s orbit like nothing has until now. They are a social experiment whose implications are scarcely captured by any of the purposes (access, cost, et cetera) often ascribed to MOOCs.
