Giocando....s'impara!

Please teacher, more games!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 5:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

Keeping Students Engaged in the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus

Keeping Students Engaged in the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

By: Ronald C. Jones


As an online instructor, I can fulfill the minimum requirements of the university regarding interacting with students, or I can create a learning environment that facilitates student engagement in the classroom. Students enroll in online classes because of the need for scheduling flexibility, work-life-school balance, costs, and convenience. Although online learning holds many advantages, the potential drawbacks revolve around the lack of personal interaction between the instructor and student, as well as the student-to-student contact. Keeping students engaged in the course is a vital function of an effective instructor.

Strong commonsense advice.  To summarize; use the online teaching environment to connect to your students with empathy and compassion.


Do more than the minimum. Be a teacher.
