Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 5:09 PM

More evidence to support how games in the classroom improve student performance and learning retention. Being user-friendly, personalizing instruction, increasing engagement, and familiarity to technology based applications are reasons cited for their effectiveness. Games stimulate the brain, grabs and focuses attention, and motivate learning through stimulation, and allowing the user to take ownership by controlling their own actions. Infographics like this are a great tool to display on your classroom website or show at conferences. There's always going to be doubters when they hear the name "games" in school.

I'm rather surprised you consider this curation... It's not that it's product-centered, but that it's a limited pool from which any sort of curation can be done.

80 Educational Alternatives to YouTube

80 Educational Alternatives to YouTube | Middle School Language Arts | Scoop.it

Kids learn best when they see how things work, when, where and why they happen. Watching educational videos is a great way to learn because it allows kids to build a visual picture or model in their mind. The visual dimension not only helps them understand concepts better but also stimulates curiosity and encourages self-training.

Quality Rubrics / Tools for Writing Rubrics

The first step in writing a rubric is to investigate if the process, product or performance that students will be engaged in deserves a rubric. Once you've established that a rubric is a good fit, there are several different starting options.

Study Educational Technology in English Language Teaching Online

Study Educational Technology in English Language Teaching Online | Middle School Language Arts | Scoop.it

I’ve long believed that teacher development, especially when it comes to technology, is best done online and over a longer period than can be accomplished with face to face training courses. Online study gives teachers the opportunity to try out new ideas with their students, think things through, and reflect on what they have learned. Working online, they can also grow within a community of teachers from around the world, learn from each other and share their learning experiences.

 

These principles have been at the heart of two new courses I have been developing in partnership with CELT Athens. I will be tutoring these courses from September 2012, so follow the link if you would like to find out more.

What’s the Best Way to Practice Project Based Learning?

What’s the Best Way to Practice Project Based Learning? | Middle School Language Arts | Scoop.it

Project Based Learning - there are many views on this subject. This post provides a great diagram that helps to see the continua that one may consider when designing PBL. It looks at six issues: Trust (locus of control), Questioning, Collaboration, Content, Knowledge and Purpose. 

For example, with Trust the continua moves from teacher directed to student directed. Based on the project you may find that the location varies. 

A short description is provided for each of the six issues that you may want to consider as are additional resources.
