Game-Based Learning Is Probably Worth Looking Into

Game-Based Learning Is Probably Worth Looking Into | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it

Jessica Trybus of the New Media Institute makes an interesting point. “Deconstruct the fun in any good game,” she says, “and it becomes clear that what makes it enjoyable is the built-in learning process.”

Good basic introduction to the pros and cons of game-based learning

Marc E. Moglen's comment, June 19, 2013 8:58 AM
At first, I did not like this article's title, but now I find it appropriate. It seems as if it is still not clear what the practical effects of digital games in the learning environment will be (I say "will" as it seems inevitable). Justin Boyle does mention a study that showed (in the case of University students) that "despite the better written and group assignment performance of the traditionally educated subjects, the game-enhanced students completed the course with better average scores overall". This is a concerning finding as it suggests that games may be readily adopted if it is shown that they can increase student performance (e.g. grades), yet the fact that games may lower actual facets of educational progress (e.g. group work) will probably be swept under the carpet.

I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments. Creating assessments is an important first step because you don't give the prescription on how to fix a business before you've figured out what the problem are-that's why you begin with the assessments- they become your base starting point of reference. This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.

There is that no suggestion is made to the potential of digital games to boost humanities fields. Oh, sorry, I forgot. No one cares about humanities anymore. Do excuse me.

Measures of Effective Teaching Project Releases Final Research Report | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it

In January 2013, the MET project released its third and final set of findings, which sought to answer three questions from practitioners and policy-makers: Can measures of effective teaching identify teachers who better help students learn?; How much weight should be placed on each measure of effective teaching when combining classroom observations, student surveys, and student achievement gains?; And how can teachers be assured trustworthy results from classroom observations?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 22, 2013 12:04 PM

I am never sure about the need to apply measures and numbers only to quality of something. It is seems so counter-intuitive. What number do we put on care, compassion, empathy, and honesty in a person?

Vanessa Monell Mercado's comment, June 23, 2013 12:17 PM
I agree, sadly those things cannot be measure with numbers and it seems more and more people disregard their importance in our craft!
