Unorthodox math lessons add up to real gains at Dana Middle School in Hawthorne

Unorthodox math lessons add up to real gains at Dana Middle School in Hawthorne | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Much of what you thought you knew about math class has been turned on its head at Dana Middle School in the Wiseburn School District.

 

Seventh- and eighth-graders at the west Hawthorne school don't really use textbooks or do much in the way of homework. The teachers rarely spend more than 10 minutes on any given lecture. At the beginning of class, instead of urging kids to quiet down, the teachers try to get them riled up.

10 Ways Teachers Use massively multplayer online role-playing games (MMOs) in the Classroom

10 Ways Teachers Use massively multplayer online role-playing games (MMOs) in the Classroom | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

The media tends to love a story of some Cheeto-dusted, Mountain Dew-chugging troglodyte landing in rehab because Everquest or World of Warcraft more or less encompassed every millisecond of their lives and they, like, totally thought they were a Blood Elf mage in real life or something. Except MMORPGs, or massively multiplayer online role-playing games, actually benefit society when applied to certain situations, but nobody ever talks about it. Academics have seized upon these games in order to better illustrate classroom lessons, build necessary character skills, and other lovely things you’ll find out if you keep reading.

American Polyglot Practicing 20 Languages

Amazing! The thing I like about it best is that he understands the cultural aspects of speaking these languages too (he says the right things about the language or the country). I love the way his voice and facial expressions change as he takes on each one, too!
