Una buena infografía que resume estudios con resultados del efecto de los videojuegos en el aprendizaje de la educacion superior, cosa que no habia visto mucho.  Además, el inicio es bastante claro, hacer un videojuego "serio" o educativo es doble reto: lograr los objetivos de aprendizaje propuestos y diseñar un gameplay igualmente divertido, motivador, estimulante... es la diferencia entre un videojuego educativo de un juego didactico.

This article gives great insight into the upcoming phenominon of "Game Based Learning".Although i have never seen it in my practises, after reading abit about it, i believe game based learning is something i would incoperate into my own classroom. Game Based learning provides a stimulating and engaging way of learning for children on a wide range of educational areas and topics. It is proven through this approach to learning students aremore likely to become motivated to learn, become increasingly engage and excel in their learning. 
Although many peoleay belive an "old school" approach to teaching is best, i feel it is highly necassary to kepp up with the fast moving pace of technology on offer, and use theseresources to help student in the classroom. Most learners that i have come aross are kinaesthetic learning, being one myself i can see how these games will help a variety of different learners and create opportunity for divergent thinking.

great resource which has iven me great insight.

"Engaging your mind takes some effort to identify what you care for and what is the best way to attain what you care for. Do you want students to become better learners? Help them discover what they care for by allowing them to identify and use their own learning style."

Concept maps are a great tool for many learners...and this post provides ten ways you might consider using them in your classroom. The concept maps are divided into three categories: Learn by Seeing, Learn by Doing, and Learn by Hearing. In many cases there is a concept map that shows off the style.

There are many free tools to help create concept maps. A quick look on concept maps in this Scoop.it will provide quite a few results.

It seems the more people deny there are learning styles the more information surfaces explaining them.
