Why Curriculum Should Function More Like A Game

Why Curriculum Should Function More Like A Game | Games and education | Scoop.it

"The structure of formal learning in most classrooms is a basic sequence of activity>lesson>unit, with a culminating assessment of some sort. Whether this assessment is a performance, a project or a traditional multiple-choice and short response exam, its function is the same: to evaluate understanding of a given set of standards."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 4, 11:20 AM
Curriculum involves living text requiring continuous interpretation by teachers and a conversation between teachers and students. Curriculum is not designed for students directly. It is written for teachers who act upon it in responsible ways engaging students in a conversation about their pedagogic actions.
