A Paradigm Shift for Student Engagement

Even more interesting is that, according to research, children will play video games for several hours, yet fail as much as 80% of the time at those games, all the while continuing to persevere with an almost irrational determination.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, August 14, 2014 4:02 AM

Interesting article about making learning into a kind of computer game.

Edgar Mata's curator insight, August 15, 2014 10:40 AM

Un buen artículo.

 

Tiene razón: Los niños y jóvenes pueden pasar horas con un vídeo-juego a pesar de que fallarán el 80% de las ocasiones y "perseverarán con  una determinación casi irracional", algo de esta perseverancia y determinación sería útil en el salón de clases.

 

Sin embargo, las críticas a su propuesta de usar juegos en la clase también tienen sentido:

"¿Qué pasará el próximo año cuando asistan a una nueva clase y se den cuenta que la escuela es trabajo y no 'juego y diversión'? Los estás preparando para una decepción."

 

Un interesante debate. 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 22, 8:23 PM
