Gamification: How to Use Game-Based Learning in the Classroom | Education Review | Games and education | Scoop.it
Video game developers have become very effective over the years at getting players addicted to their products, much like gambling gets its hooks into people. But while gambling and games get you hooked into potentially harmful habits, the ways by which they entice people to become addicted have the possibility to be extremely helpful in a positive and productive way when used in the right setting and with the right purpose. In the following article, we’ll explore how games are able to be so addictive, how gamifying learning can be effective for teaching, and how you can use reward based systems in the classroom.

15 free games that will help you learn how to code

15 free games that will help you learn how to code | Games and education | Scoop.it


"Online learning has come a long way in the last few years.Flickr/Laurie Sullivan

When I started learning to code, the options were limited—lots of books (not even e-books), some very basic online tutorials, and a whole lot of experimentation.

Online learning has come a long way in the last few years. There are interactive courses, tons of online tutorials, and one of my personal favorite ways to practice coding: games.

While a game alone probably isn’t going to teach you everything you need to know about coding, it can be a really incredible way to practice the skills you’re learning. It makes practice fun. And if you’re anything like me, you might suddenly realize you’ve spent the last four hours reinforcing your coding skills without even realizing it.

I’ve tried out some of the most entertaining and useful games for learning to code. Check out my favorites below. "

How to Engage the Students Who Need It Most: Gamification

How to Engage the Students Who Need It Most: Gamification | Games and education | Scoop.it
That’s the truth about gamification: it will not make your kids smarter or perform better on tests. Gamification is about increasing motivation and engagement. Once you have a kid’s attention, it is still up to the teacher to deliver a solid, meaningful lesson. Gamification is not a magic bullet, nor does every student need it, but the students who benefit the most from a gamified classroom just so happen to be the ones who most need motivation and engagement.
