8 Research Findings Supporting the Benefits of Gamification in Education | Emerging Education Technology

8 Research Findings Supporting the Benefits of Gamification in Education | Emerging Education Technology | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it
Of course, the “gamification” of educational generally refers to the idea of incorporating gaming elements in instruction and instructional tools, such as the use of digital badges in an online learning application. But with findings such as those below indicating that game playing can enhance the learning process, it is logical to assume that the use of gaming mechanics and concepts in educational tools and processes can also yield benefits. Naturally, it is left to the reader to draw their own conclusions after perusing this content and the original published sources cited.

Guía sobre videojuegos educativos.

Este manual se elaboró en el marco del proyecto Juegos en los centros educativos, de European Schoolnet, iniciado en enero de 2008 y finalizado en junio de 2009. Su objetivo era analizar la situación actual de 8 países (Austria, Dinamarca, España, Francia, Italia, Lituania, Países Bajos y Reino Unido) en materia de videojuegos aplicados al aprendizaje.
Se compone de varios elementos: un resumen y un informe final basado en los resultados de una encuesta realizada a los docentes en Europa, ejemplos prácticos y entrevistas con importantes responsables políticos, investigadores y expertos, así
como una comunidad en línea de prácticas y por último, el presente manual para docentes. Para más información sobre el proyecto de European Schoolnet y enlaces a los informes de los estudios, consulte el blog de Videojuegos en el aula (http://games.eun.org).

Ricardo Martín Ramirez 's insight:

So you love Google Forms but you are too busy to use it to create your own forms. Don't worry we have some great pre-made forms for you . But before I share them with you let me  just remind you of the Chinese adage that goes " don't give me a fish everyday but show me how to fish ",  you might find some of the forms included below useful but it would be way better to create your own tailored to your own teaching and learning needs.
