It's hard to learn to play the piano just by watching a video of a great pianist. Interactive learning is much more effective! oppia.org helps you make embeddable interactive educational "explorations" that let people learn by doing.

Stacey Edmonds's curator insight, June 10, 2013 11:47 PM

We can be so creative and insprational now in how we provide learning to our children.  My son experiences the joys of Transmedia Storytelling when interacting with Ninjago, whether it be the cartoon, the games or his own world of Ninjago Lego.


It is hard as a parent to navigate between the whole 'Play Screen Time' v's 'Learning Screen Time' guidelines...especially when my son is also reading and writing words well above his offical 'grade' at school as he wants to create his own world in MineCraft, which means he needs to follow instructions and name his creations.


Actually, the insights in this article also takes me back to my early 20's when I was working with young men with learning difficulties and through the provision of computers they were motivated to read and write so they could search the 'world wide web' (what they were searching for was another matter!).


As Jennifer asks, If an app/game can inspire a child to read and become a lifelong reader, shouldn't we find ways to embrace the technology rather than condemn it?


See what you think!

Transmedia Storytelling

BookChook's curator insight, October 20, 2013 6:57 PM

Interesting article with thought-provoking comments. I believe we need to be open to all sorts of media and opportunities with our kids, to help them find the reading that works for them.

The Best Ways to Stay Updated on Psychology Research

The Best Ways to Stay Updated on Psychology Research | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Find out how to follow the latest psychology research and learn more about how your mind works.
Sharrock's insight:

We need to place research into a context. The context can be influenced by research in other areas, areas other than in the domain or field of the people performing the research. Education and neurosciences sometimes base findings or reach conclusions based on research from psychologists in addition to other fields because education and neurosciences are essentially multidisciplinary.

5 Things That Really Smart People Do

5 Things That Really Smart People Do | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Don't get in the way of your own learning. Here are five ways to step aside and continue to increase your smarts.
Sharrock's insight:

These are skills at learning from others. They are goals for conversations as well as in collaborations. They are the ways problems get solved in new ways (implications for innovation? for creativity? for developing a better imagination?)
