Michele Ivanisevic's insight:

Quest for Learning School in New York developed by the Institute of Play -- Students are able to observe and participate in the live design of game-like curricula. The fact that they have a hand in the process and it has real-world relevance is what makes this type of learning meaningful to them. They work alongside teachers, deisgners and other professionals   towards a purpose.

Michele Ivanisevic's insight:

Interesting thoughts. I especially like this quote - " the impact of games (or indeed any educational intervention) depends on the pre- and post-experiences of the learners as much as the ‘play’ itself." The pre-discussion and debrief about why the game is being played is critical in allowing students to truly gain from experiential learning.

Interesting point of view.

First, thank you for the rescoop. Second, I so agree with reflection that I insist we do it on most days, at least a few minutes. Brain research is clear on this. In order to get the long-term memory activated, reflection is necessary!
Caitlyn Frame's curator insight, June 7, 2013 11:18 PM

This interesting article delves into the concept of "game-based learning" as a comparison to "play-based learning". This demonstrates the role and usefulnes of incorporating a game-based acitivity into classroom learning and the value that this may or may not have. Some very interesting application for senior primary classes the way it may link in with Australian Curriculum.

What Schools Can Learn From Google, IDEO, and Pixar

What Schools Can Learn From Google, IDEO, and Pixar | Integrative Thinking | Scoop.it

"In many ways, what makes the Googles of the world exceptional begins in the childhood classroom-- an embrace of creativity, play, and collaboration. It was just one year ago that 1,500 CEOs identified creativity as the number-one leadership competency in our complex global marketplace. We can no longer afford to teach our kids or design their schoolhouses the way we used to if we’re to maintain a competitive edge. In looking at various exemplary workplaces such as IDEO, Google, and Pixar, we can glean valuable lessons about effective educational approaches and the spaces that support them, principles like transparency, spontaneity, and playfulness." | via Fast Company Design

Design Thinking. Bringing Empathy and Collaboration to Your Designs

  Design Thinking is a process of bringing integrative thinking, experimentalism, collaboration and empathy into the design process in a structured way. In this episode Vince and Allison walk us through the empathy and collaboration aspects of this framework.


Via Edwin Rutsch
Michele Ivanisevic's insight:

Empathy and Collaboration = Design thinking;  Integrative Thinking: Designers harmonize seemingly conflicting ideas into a useful hole; - Experimentalism - questions about usefulness; Collaboration - variety of interdisciplinary ideas; Empathy - imagine the use by customers through a true understanding of how the customer interacts with their environment  

 

Collaboration with target audience is key - hands on experience - managing the opinions of a focus group - meaningful insights into the benefits and flaws of current designs -- Self-Reflective -- feedback
