From Cindy's Links TCC 4-4

I Scooped this from "iTeach with Technology" blog. Karen Ogen is the author there, but she got it from David Kapuler's blog, "Technology Tidbits."  CreatorVerse looks like a niche which hadn't been filled. Physics and Art! Linden Labs develops games, but has stepped out with more collaborative "gaming."

A New Breed of Apps Puts Joy Back in Math Learning - Getting Smart by Marie Bjerede - #mathchat #gbl #edapps

A New Breed of Apps Puts Joy Back in Math Learning - Getting Smart by Marie Bjerede - #mathchat #gbl #edapps | Math Tools | Scoop.it

"Math should be fun – even when it’s stupidly hard.  Instead it feels grueling – even when it’s fundamentally a delightful puzzle.  This has nothing to do with our smarts or math aptitude and everything to do with how we approach it.  I’ve written previously about the dearth of excellent math apps and how disappointed I’ve been that the promise of achieving computational and mathematical fluency as a side effect of truly engaging work has been left unfulfilled.  Until recently, that is.

 

There is a new breed of math app, and just a handful of stellar examples serve as the proof of concept that an honest, real, non-hyped transformation of learning through digital tools is possible.  And this week another excellent math application, Wuzzit Trouble, joins their ranks."
