I Came, I Saw, I Learned...: eLearning: How to Incorporate Gamification Elements

3 game-like concepts you can use.

 

* Stories, Yes. Bullets, No!

"We've all heard that it is no longer cool to give a presentation of nothing but bullet points. But while it's easy to say 'don't use bullets,' it's a lot harder to figure out what to do instead. One option is to think like a video game designer. The objective of the game may be to save the princess, but to make the game compelling, you have to tell the princess's backstory, make us adore the princess, and then tell us what trouble the princess is in and how we'll save her."

 

"At a minimum, create a work-like scenario. ... An even more compelling story will have actual characters and a string of events. "

 

* Challenge Learners and Promote Creativity
* Provide Continual On-The-Spot Feedback

Learning at Not-School

Learning at Not-School | Living With A Disability | Scoop.it

by Julian Sefton-Green, DML Research Hub

 

Schools do not define education, and they are not the only institutions in which learning takes place. After-school programs, music lessons, Scouts, summer camps, on-the-job training, and home activities all offer out-of-school educational experiences.

 

In Learning at Not-School, Julian Sefton-Green explores studies and scholarly research on out-of-school learning, investigating just what it is that is distinctive about the quality of learning in these...

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer | Living With A Disability | Scoop.it

In a traditional classroom, the teacher is the center of attention, the owner of knowledge and information. Teachers often ask questions of their students to gauge comprehension, but it’s a passive model that relies on students to absorb information they need to reproduce on tests.

What would happen if the roles were flipped and students asked the questions?

Learning about learning from the London Underground

Learning about learning from the London Underground | Living With A Disability | Scoop.it

From the article "... many teachers, including myself, often hold our students’ hands and lead them from A to B ... We give our students scaffolds that tell them exactly what to do. We work through questions in worksheets as a whole class so all students have to do is copy the answers from the board or write down what they heard from another student. Students look like they know what they are doing, but really they were like me, just following someone who knows what they are doing."

 

"But what if we just let our students get from A to B by themselves? Why are we so scared of letting them find their own way?"
