Beyond Minecraft: Games That Inspire Building and Exploration

Beyond Minecraft: Games That Inspire Building and Exploration | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

"The success and popularity of Minecraft in and out of classrooms is no surprise. It’s one of the best examples of the potential of learning with games because it embraces exploration, discovery, creation, collaboration, and problem-solving while allowing teachers to shepherd play toward any subject area."

Check out a selection of games that will help students explore, create, collaborate and more. The six games discussed are:

* Garry's Mod - learn physics as you play

* Kerbal Space Program - another physics game

* Sound Shapes - designed for PlayStation this is a "puzzle game set to a rich musical soundscape"

* DIY - Find instructions to build a wide variety of items and a community that will support you

* STENCYL - learn to program using "blocks of code" that you may snap together and create games that may be played on a variety of platforms

* CodeAcademy - learn a variety of programming language for free

Do you think students should learn to code? If you do then some of these games will provide them with this skill as well as others that we know are part of gaming. You may want to try some of these with your students.

Great ways to use game-making in education - I love using MineCraft with the senior primary students. It really brings maths into engineering and science!

I chose this article because my partner likes minecraft. It relates because it entertains my partner.

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning | Readnlearn | Scoop.it

This article offers a critical review of the literature on 21st century knowledge frameworks, with a particular focus on what this means for teachers and teacher educators.

 

The authors accomplish this by identifying common themes and knowledge domains in 15 reports, books, and articles that describe the kinds of knowledge that researchers state are integral and important for success in the 21st century.

 

The authors argue that seemingly disparate frameworks converge on three types of knowledge, as necessary for the 21st century: foundational, meta, and humanistic. Although 21st century frameworks are thought to advocate new types of knowledge, little has actually changed in the new century with respect to the overall goals of education.

 

Despite this sense of continuity, significant changes related to how technologies change all three types of knowledge need to be conveyed.

 

The article ends with specific conclusions and recommendations for teacher education.
