How gaming is becoming a classroom tool

How gaming is becoming a classroom tool | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it
At first glance the idea of bringing digital games into the classroom might seem like a recipe for some kind of disaster involving a never-ending Candy Crush tournament. However, academic research into digital games and learning content shows that the two can happily co-exist, to the benefit of students of all ages.
miracletrain 夢想驛站's insight:

The Sheffield Hallam team are currently working on a maths game for the PlayStation 4 platform that aims to strike this delicate balance. “It helps learners formalise their mathematical knowledge through the core mechanics, while challenging their conceptual understanding in order to meet the longer term goals of the game,” says Habgood.

miracletrain 夢想驛站's insight:

"We just tried to re-envision what it really means to do education in the 21st century. Education has to be life-long. The reason is, it’s just impractical to have the same career for your entire life these days. We asked what the right delivery method was for education to be life-long. Mobile is nice for that, because everyone has a mobile device and you can do it [a Nanodegree course] on your own time at home. And then we asked what the right packaging size is, and it became Nanodegrees because we feel we want to give people a new job, and there has to be a certain amount of depth involved."
