Jeffrey Earp's insight:

Interested to see exactly what the authors mean by "designing soft skills" and how this might apply to creativity, collaboration, etc. Embedding opportunities for practising/developing soft skills?

Tapping Into the Potential of Games and Uninhibited Play for Learning

Tapping Into the Potential of Games and Uninhibited Play for Learning | game based learning | Scoop.it

First in a series of GBL posts from Jordan Shapiro, author of FREEPLAY: A Video Game Guide To Maximum Euphoric Bliss, and Forbes columnist on game-based learning, education technology, and parenting. 

Jeffrey Earp's insight:

For me, reframing class content or trying a different activity to deepen students’ understanding is orchestration when it's done on-the-fly, or learning design when it's pondered. I see them not so much as tools but as processes (and skills) that can make use of tools. What do you think?

Coincidently, Italian kids currently use the word "fiero" the way kids in the US use "cool" and UK kids use "wicked" :-)

Product Owner Game

Product Owner Game | game based learning | Scoop.it

"There is no game that helps grow great all-round Product Owners…. or that improves or extends itself every time we learn something and add it to the game.

We would love to add an extremely valuable tool and we invite you to join us on this journey to co-create a serious game for Product Owners. We will do this through crowd-sourcing and crowd-funding. We envision having both freely downloadable versions of the game and high-quality physical versions that you can purchase, like Agile the board game."

Jeffrey Earp's curator insight, March 26, 6:28 AM

According to Nesta's survey, a majority of UK's youngsters have at some time made a digital game. The words kids associate with digital makers are CREATIVE, SMART and COOL. The key words capturing their motivation are FUN and INTERESTING. And of all digital production types, the one they want most to pursue is GAME MAKING! Much food for thought here.

James Gee on Why the Power of Games to Teach Remains Unrealized

James Gee on Why the Power of Games to Teach Remains Unrealized | game based learning | Scoop.it

It isn’t the technology or the book that changes things, it’s what you do with it. Games can be a very important new tool and if they are networked with other tools and with good learning practices into a learning system that is collaborative and social and stressing deep cognitive skills (as well as non-cognitive skills like persistence-past-failure) then they can be very, very, very good. But by themselves — too many people today are saying, “OK, let’s just bring a game to school and it will make everything ok.” That’s just like the textbook..
