Does the use of games- based learning and apps have a future in education | Jisc Inform | Emily's Portfolio | Scoop.it

When you think about games-based learning, you could be forgiven for conjuring images of students spending an unhealthy amount of time playing games and eating pizza, drinking fizzy drinks and not exercising. Perhaps a bit of a generalisation, but when I think about ‘games’ its function is primarily to entertain, so how can they be used effectively in education? 

 

Smartphone and tablet devices have exploded in popularity and teachers are using these devices in a variety of different ways. Bridgwater College is using iPads to analyse the technique of their sports students and Kendal College is using augmented reality in its prospectus materials. In terms of games-based learning Minecraft, a game based app, is being used as a tool for creating new worlds and there’s even a website dedicated to its use in education. Check out this interesting video by pbsideachannel to find our more.

A fantastic article about the importance of children being able to participate in backyard sports not only to encourage future athletes but also for health and wellbeing.

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook | Emily's Portfolio | Scoop.it

More than 100 teachers from across Europe participated in the SMILE (Social Media in Learning and Education) action and undertook a pedagogical journey to explore jointly the challenges and opportunities involved when using social media in learning and education.
 
The outcomes of the project, funded by a Digital Citizenship Research Grant from Facebook, are now published in a digital handbook. You can find pedagogical materials and resources from the learning laboratory with many valuable reflections and suggestions on some critical aspects of the use of social media as regards school policies, pedagogical principles, professional development, responsible use and challenges to adoption.

Good to know someoe is looking at the pedagogy.

Andrew McRobert's curator insight, August 19, 2014 8:48 AM

12. Any innovation in education deserves to be heard even if it’s just to start the conversation. This example shows the use of facebook being used in education. Interesting to see the comment of the teacher regarding the enthusiasm of the students.

Jessica Alanis's curator insight, April 1, 11:56 PM

You can download the digital handbook from a link here. There is also a newsletter that might be worth signing up to.

How does technology change learning and teaching in formal and informal education? | Emily's Portfolio | Scoop.it

"It seems that the days of the Socratic teacher are fast fading. The digital world gives everyone an opportunity to find his or her own expert, not necessarily in the classroom. The Internet and other digital resources provide students and teachers with the means to reach out to the world and extract the information that they find most interesting, whatever it may be."
