How Scientists Are Using Games to Unlock the Body’s Mysteries

How Scientists Are Using Games to Unlock the Body’s Mysteries | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

This playful approach to doing science is part of a larger trend, what has become known as the gamification of life. 

It’s this tinkering approach, this trial and error, that is the basis of play. Beginning when we could hold a rattle, we all learned to solve problems by playing with them. Only now we can all play and contribute to science, too.

Leuk om zo via een zijweg weer tegen GameSalad aan te lopen

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 7:36 AM

Kind of seems like a sales pitch, but with cool infographics, this offers some insight into where gaming is heading in the future. Open-ended solutions and level complexity will surely be explorer. For educators, this is excellent news. Higher-level thinking and critical thinking skills need to be developed. Future gaming can play a role in getting kids to think rather than falling back on rote memorization techniques.

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.

"We’ve gathered this list of our favorite games that reinforce the importance of kindness, empathy, and diversity in a variety of ways. Whether you use Re-Mission 2 in biology class to help kids understand what it’s like to have a terminal illness, or Wee You-Things during reading time to celebrate students’ differences, there are ways for teachers of all subject areas to encourage pro-social behavior."
