Gamed based learning is a powerful tool for teaching! As a data nerd, I have seen first hand the achievement scores of students who game vs. don't game. This is not a scientific study, but is based on seeing scores skyrocket from students who are accused of "doing nothing" in school and yet are avid gamers. Hmmm.

Neuroscience & the Classroom: Making Connections

Neuroscience & the Classroom: Making Connections | Innovative Education | Scoop.it

"Insights drawn from neuroscience not only provide educators with a scientific basis for understanding some of the best practices in teaching, but also offer a new lens through which to look at the problems teachers grapple with every day. By gaining insights into how the brain works—and how students actually learn—teachers will be able to create their own solutions to the classroom challenges they face and improve their practice." This is a course for K-12 educators.
