Playing Games Can Yield Serious Learning

Playing Games Can Yield Serious Learning | Integration and Teaching: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
How often do you hear college students say, “that was fun!” on their way out of your classroom? Probably not often enough. Of course, who has time for fun when you have a syllabus packed with serious learning outcomes and one semester to accomplish your goals. Not to diminish the hard work involved in prepping for lectures, but when was the last time you asked yourself: Is my class fun?

Is the Purpose of Teaching Student Learning or Student Grading? 

Is the purpose of teaching student learning or student grading? I don’t believe that you can have it both ways. That is, grading, at least the way it’s commonly done, inhibits student learning. This is not merely my idea. David Brooks wrote a piece in the NYTabout this, saying “We all know why it exists, but the grade-point average is one of the more destructive elements in American education. In life we want independent thinking and risk-taking, but the GPA system encourages students to be deferential and risk averse, giving their teachers what they want.“

A technology revolution isn't coming to classrooms, it's here

A technology revolution isn't coming to classrooms, it's here | Integration and Teaching: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
The classroom tech revolution is here already.

That may surprise some people since there’s been a steady stream of those saying the education technology revolution is coming. Mostly, though, those promising the edtech revolution are seeing a sweeping, top-to-bottom reformation where education goes primarily online and learning for everyone is personalized and fluid. And that may happen.

But if your eyes are focused on that horizon, you may be missing the real and impactful ways technology is already changing how students learn and teachers teach. Here are a few examples.

While the complete death of on-paper book publishers has been exaggerated, there’s no doubt that digital publishers and publishing platforms are the modern normal. It’s a bit of a surprise then that so many classroom education functions are still done on paper. Digital textbooks at all levels have been promised for a while and are just now starting to infiltrate the market. What’s more surprising that in-classroom tests and exams are also still, for the most part, done with paper and pencil - literally, old school.
