Video games: are they edu taboo and should we leave them that way?

Video games: are they edu taboo and should we leave them that way? | NSW English K-10 syllabus | Scoop.it
Over the last week I have spent a lot of time reading the new draft K-10 English Syllabus. You can read it online here. Whilst I am excited by the possibilities that this new syllabus presents (there is heaps of stuff on ICT, multimodal texts, mulitliteracies, student-centred learning, assessment for learning/feedback and social-awareness) there is a glaring omission: video games. I was really pleased to see explicit reference to book trailers, blogging, graphic novels and digital-storytelling – I think the inclusion of these specific contemporary text forms is important as they will be new to many English teachers. But given the strong focus on what the Board is calling ‘mulitmodal’ texts, I was really surprised that video games failed to get a mention within the body of the 7-10 outcomes and dot-points. OK, it’s not like they’ve black-listed video games all together, I did find TWO references to video games in the syllabus:

Literacy and the New Media Landscape

Literacy and the New Media Landscape | NSW English K-10 syllabus | Scoop.it
So what must our broader understanding of ‘literacy’ now include? One of the most forward-thinking definitions is to be found in the aims of the Literacy strand of the Australian (ACARA) English curriculum: “ to develop students’ ability to interpret and create texts with appropriateness, accuracy, confidence, fluency and efficacy for learning in and out of school, and for participating in Australian life more generally. Texts chosen include media texts, everyday texts and workplace texts from increasingly complex and unfamiliar settings, ranging from the everyday language of personal experience to more abstract, specialised and technical language, including the language of schooling and academic study. Students learn to adapt language to meet the demands of more general or more specialised purposes, audiences and contexts.

ONCE penmanship was an art and handwriting a skill developed through endless practice. Now, teachers say, cursive handwriting is disappearing from secondary schools, leaving many senior students unable to write quickly or fluently. The finger is being pointed at technology.

Illegible handwriting has become a serious problem for teachers, according to Ross Huggard, vice-president of the Victorian Association for the Teaching of English. He says sometimes students can’t even read their own work.
