How Game-Based And Traditional Learning Are Different | TeachThought

How Game-Based And Traditional Learning Are Different | TeachThought | Instructional Technology Tools | Scoop.it

Via OnlineUniversities.com

 

"There are several big movements underway that are worthy of debate and possible consideration as we look to help education become the 21st century, user-centered, on-demand, engaging, technology-centric activity that it has not been for much of its existence. Game-based learning (GBL), or gamification, is one of the models that commonly gets touted as a cure-all for the problems with education because of the popularity of gaming in our society (New Media Institute). While there are problems with the gamification movement as it currently stands, the model has several areas in which it differs sufficiently from traditional education to make it an intriguing possibility. Here is a look at several of those differences."

We need to be mindful and aware of waht helps children and adults learn. It is not enough to hook up the technology and expect everyone to learn in one way.

Beth Case's comment, April 17, 2013 12:56 PM
Technology is a TOOL, not a goal. Just because students learned before the invention of TV doesn't mean education can't be improved. While it can be annoying to jump on every new gimmick, it's just as annoying to be resistant to trying anything new.
