Will gamification be the future of education? – The Tech Edvocate

Will gamification be the future of education? – The Tech Edvocate | Learning & Training - www.click4it.org | Scoop.it

The world of gaming has been intertwined with the world of education for a long time.  The two worlds have seemingly never had a quality relationship. The world of gaming has had a stranglehold on the attention of school age children for years. The world of education has consistently looked down on these games, sighting their presence as a destructive deterrent to a quality education. Rather than pitting these two worlds against each other, what if we entangled the two? What if we found a way to bring gaming to education and vice versa?

The Viral Power of Storytelling in Content Marketing

The Viral Power of Storytelling in Content Marketing | Learning & Training - www.click4it.org | Scoop.it

In the dark-dark city, on the dark-dark street, in the dark-dark office, there was one dark-dark company, but no one knew about it because the company couldn’t tell people about itself…


Modern information consumers want more than just data. People of this generation are used to getting accessible news, ideas, information, and knowledge; they know the tricks and cannot stand importunate marketing. The more promotional lines they see in a text, the faster they stop reading it. That is why storytelling is a great idea for any marketing campaign.


People love stories. They are thrilled to read about something similar to what they’ve experienced, to delve into one’s dirty laundry, to see love stories, etc. Storytelling can be a very powerful tool for content creators. They can influence people’s emotions and get those precious likes and shares....

Growth mindset for teachers - Mark Anderson @ICTEvangelist

Growth mindset for teachers - Mark Anderson @ICTEvangelist | Learning & Training - www.click4it.org | Scoop.it

"When it comes to using technology, a significant number of teachers can have a bit of a mental block – this can be for a large number of reasons; from concern over it not working or that it won’t have the right impact or that they simply feel incompetent and can’t use it. This parallels itself quite nicely with the popular research related topic of growth mindsets. Certainly, I’m all about making sure we use technology for purposeful reasons, but not because of reasons mentioned above. Our kids and those we work with, have a right to access learning in all manner of different ways, including with technology.


I recently created a sketchnote style graphic using Paper by 53 to support growth mindset for students which has resonated a fair amount with folk. So to help with this topic, I’ve followed up with a similar graphic, mostly created in Paper but followed up with some fine-tuning in Photoshop (Paper now has a ‘send to Photoshop’ option which is pretty cool!)."

Researchers observe language learning skills through brain imaging

Researchers observe language learning skills through brain imaging | Learning & Training - www.click4it.org | Scoop.it
Learning a new language is a difficult task. It requires skills for memorizing new words, learning how to put those words together in a grammatical way, and integrating them with existing linguistic knowledge. In a new study from researchers at the Donders Institute and Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, these skills were observed through brain imaging as native speakers of Dutch learned an artificial miniature language 'Alienese'.

Reuse grammatical characteristics

The major discovery was that the brain cares whether or not the grammatical properties of the new language (in this case, word order) resemble the grammatical properties of your native language. If they are similar, your brain uses its own grammar in learning the new language. And if the word order of the new language differs from your mother tongue, your brain needs to build a new grammatical repertoire. For the first time, researchers have shown that it helps the brain if it can reuse characteristics of our mother tongue when learning a new language.

Josa komi oku

Alienese consisted of a set of words like josa 'woman', komi 'man', and oku 'to photograph'. These words could be combined in a particular order, which either did or did not conform for Dutch word order. For instance, both sentences Komi oku josa (man photograph woman) and Josa komi oku (woman man photograph) have the meaning "The man photographs the woman". The former sentence conforms to Dutch word order (and English), but the latter does not. Participants read sentences with familiar and unfamiliar word orders accompanied by pictures depicting the meaning (see image).

Language brain network

When the unfamiliar word orders (josa komi oku) were repeated, brain activation increased within regions of the brain network known to be involved for your native language. Lead author of the study Kirsten Weber proposes, "The enhanced activity might reflect a brain mechanism to build and strengthen a neural network to process novel word order regularities." When the familiar word order (komi oku josa) was repeated, brain activation decreased in language-related regions. "That we found suppressed activation on the other hand, supports our ideas that a known structure in a novel language quickly behaves like a structure in your native language. Processing a known structure is easier for the brain second time round. As a whole, our study shows that we seem to use the same brain areas for native and new language structures and that Alienese was in the process of being integrated into the participants existing language brain networks."

Why Instructional Design must focus on learning outcomes, not learning activities

Why Instructional Design must focus on learning outcomes, not learning activities | Learning & Training - www.click4it.org | Scoop.it
t’s no secret that kids learn better when teachers provide learning activities that keep them engaged. Teachers work tirelessly to plan engaging lessons that capture and keep the interests of their students, thereby making content more accessible. However, teachers continue to feel the daunting pressure to compete for their students’ attention amidst the ever-evolving and rapidly-hanging mass media, social media, and entertainment industry, as these elements do a stellar job of keeping students highly engaged outside of the classroom.

Although it is vitally important for us to know and understand our students' interests and the best conditions under which they learn, there is good news: It’s not necessary that we focus our efforts on competing with the devices and activities our students engage in during their downtime outside of the classroom! Recreation, entertainment, and downtime for students outside of the classroom are just that: recreation, entertainment, and downtime. Students expect to come to school to learn and to be challenged (although they may never tell us that).

Storytelling Is The Path for Learning Leaders Winning Friends + Influencing People

Storytelling Is The Path for Learning Leaders Winning Friends + Influencing People | Learning & Training - www.click4it.org | Scoop.it
Sheer talent will only yield so much problem-solving capability. It’s one reason relationships are so important for business success.

Michael Chavez, CEO of Duke Corporate Education, said leaders needn’t look further than this summer’s Brexit vote as an example of this. Increasingly complex problems will not be easily solved with a purely functional mindset. The relationships people will need to build in the British government moving forward will be far more important than arriving at the right answer when there are many pathways out of the predicament, he explained.

That’s politics, but relationships are no less important in business. Learning leaders in particular have to be strong networkers and collaborators to be effective. Chavez said networking is probably a requirement for the job. If he had to hire a chief learning officer of his own, he said he’d be willing to trade off experience working with learning management systems, for instance, for a proven track record of building relationships based on the work. “Technical expertise in learning is not sufficient — necessary but not sufficient — to drive the kind of learning solutions that organizations need.”

Are you a learning leader? if not, don't expect a learning organisation!

donhornsby's curator insight, November 1, 2016 10:48 AM
“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” — Dale Carnegie, “How to Win Friends and Influence People”
Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 2, 2016 2:28 PM

Here's a great article that thoroughly discusses the steps leaders need to take to create a learning organization. The first step is to become a learning leader yourself. After that there are 6 steps to shift into a learning culture (that is more productive and profitable).

 

What's storytelling got to do with it? It's the way to implement all 6 steps to get to those concrete results. Storytelling is the path. Like most articles, steps are offered, but not the "how". In this case, storytelling can be the powerful "how".

 

But it's really about story dynamics -- the give and take of conversational storytelling. That means leaders need training in how to evoke stories from others, how to listen for stories, and the best ways/timing for giving appreciations. These are covered in Chapter 5 of our book "Business Storytelling For Dummies".

 

On the flip side of the coin is learning storytelling skills to foster authenticity, empathy, transparency, and executive presence.

 

What I love about this article are the examples/case studies they provide. This moves the content from platitudes to real life experiences. 'Gotta love that.

 

Dig into this rich post and start making these changes today.

3 Ways to Use MOOCs to Advance Your Career

3 Ways to Use MOOCs to Advance Your Career | Learning & Training - www.click4it.org | Scoop.it

"The vast majority of people who sign up for a MOOC—a massive open online course—never complete it. More than 50% consume less than half of the course’s content. This is wrongly viewed as evidence that MOOCs don’t work, that people are dropping off and not getting value. The assumption behind that conclusion is that you have to complete a whole, semester-long course to get value from online education. As a MOOC addict, I can tell you: that’s not true. Instead, I’ve found there are at least three good ways to learn from MOOCs, depending on your goals and the time you plan to spend."

What is Gamification and Why Should L&D Professionals Use It? | Learning & Training - www.click4it.org | Scoop.it
The experts agree that opportunities in L&D to apply gamification are only growing, and more opportunities translate into higher pay. Trends project a continued employee engagement crisis, the arrival of Generation Z, the swell of Millennials, the departure of Boomers, and a greater emphasis placed on data and analytics. Simply defined, gamification uses game mechanics and rewards for non-game applications in order to increase engagement and loyalty, solve problems, change behaviors, and achieve business objectives. Gamification is an important and powerful strategy for influencing and motivating people. The exciting news is although Gamification is a NEW addition to an instructional designer's toolkit, it won't be a steep learning curve for most learning and development professionals, because you have been using many of the techniques for years. Gamification does NOT mean making a computer or a video game, and expecting it to motivate people … it means taking the concepts around games and using them in an authentic way to drive the behavior you want to get. This week let's go back to the basics and learn why Gamification works, in what context it is most effective, and why you as an L&D Professional should consider using it in your instructional design and delivery in 2015.
