Stretch student collaboration skills with Breakout EDU

Stretch student collaboration skills with Breakout EDU | On education | Scoop.it
There is a new platform for immersive learning games that’s taking classrooms across the world by storm. Based on the same principles as interactive Escape The Room digital games — which challenge players to use their surroundings to escape a prison-like scenario — Breakout EDU is a collaborative learning experience that enhances critical thinking and creativity while fostering a growth mindset in students.

There are two types of games available for teachers to run in their classrooms: the physical games (which are the main games) use the Breakout EDU box (or any box with a hasp that can be locked) with a set of locks, and the digital games which only need internet-connected devices.

Gameplay revolves around a Breakout EDU box that has been locked with multiple and different locks including directional locks, word locks, and number locks. After listening to a game scenario read by the teacher, students must work together to find and use clues to solve puzzles that reveal the various lock combinations before time expires (usually 45 minutes). Teachers can either purchase the Breakout EDU kit, which includes a plastic or wooden box and a set of locks, or the individual pieces of the kit can be ordered from Amazon directly. Either way, it takes about $100 to get started with the physical games; the digital games are free.

Presentation Design Experts on Zoom for PowerPoint | Buffalo7

Presentation Design Experts on Zoom for PowerPoint | Buffalo7 | On education | Scoop.it

"Zoom represents a landmark move for PowerPoint because it puts interactivity at the centre of the presentation. A common paint point for our clients is that regular PowerPoint decks are ‘too linear’ for their presenting needs. And while we’ve previously implemented hyperlinked navigation to overcome this, Zoom for PowerPoint represents a much more intuitive solution that casual users can get on board with.


"Our presentation design specialist Steph commented, “Interactive, non-linear PowerPoint navigation is something we’ve been advocating for years – especially to clients who need to be agile and customer-focused with their sales presentations. We’ve previously accomplished this using hyperlinking, but despite the flexibility this old method offered, it was inarguably clunky when compared with things like Prezi’s canvas navigation.


“Zoom is a part of a paradigm shift happening with PowerPoint to better reflect the evolving need of its user base: our clients have already benefitted from the fluid, filmic animations we’ve created using the PowerPoint Morph tool and we can’t wait to show them what we can accomplish with this new feature.”

A Growth Mindset Could Buffer Kids From Negative Academic Effects of Poverty

A Growth Mindset Could Buffer Kids From Negative Academic Effects of Poverty | On education | Scoop.it
“This is not a sample; this is everyone in school,” said Susana Claro, a doctoral candidate at Stanford’s Graduate School of Education and lead author of the article “Growth Mindset Tempers the Effects of Poverty on Academic Achievement,” published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Claro, along with Stanford scholars David Paunesku and Carol Dweck, wanted to know if at a very large-scale (168,000 students) growth mindset would correlate with academic performance. They found that it did at almost every school in Chile, a correlation stronger than they expected to find.

Anna Singer's curator insight, January 22, 1:30 PM
Great visual reference when designing lessons.
Jim Lerman's curator insight, August 20, 12:55 PM

I'm on a personal campaign to add 2 levels above Creating to Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy (don't forget he wrote about 3 domains of learning...Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor). I believe our field tends to overemphasize the Cognitive domain at the expense of the other 2, and to the detriment of learners.

 

Anyhow, the 2 levels above Creating that I'm concerned about are: Reflecting and Sharing. My reasoning goes like this:

 

 

Reflecting Once we go through all 6 levels (and they are not hierarchical, a learning sequence can start or end with any of them), if we want students to enhance their metacognition, it is important for us to build in reflective experiences. Such experiences enhance students' abilities to be more self-aware of how they learn and the strategies that do or don't work well for them.

Sharing - We teachers often remark that our knowledge of a particular topic solidifies when we teach it to someone else...the act of sharing brings out our awareness of nuances, relationships, perceptions, modes of expression/communication, and our interpersonal skills of working with others; all things that are very important to people's success in our current era. Our students deserve to become proficient in sharing effectively.

 

My 2 cents.

Europeana 1914-1918, a project based at the University of Oxford, hosts a remarkable collection of primary documents relating to World War I, collected by individuals, libraries, and film archives across Europe. On this website, visitors may browse through hundreds of Letters, Diaries, Photographs, World War I Films, Official Documents, and Postcards. Each resource type is further sorted by Subject (Propaganda, Women, Aerial Warfare, etc.) or Front (Italian Front, Home Front,Eastern Front, and Western Front), letting visitors explore the experiences and perspectives of European, American, Australian, and New Zealand soldiers. Each item is annotated and includes a brief description that provides relevant context. The letters and diaries comprise an especially powerful component of this project, allowing modern day readers a glimpse into the daily lives of soldiers. (Note that these sources are digitized - with the exception of a few that need to be ordered - but not translated. However, most non-English sources do include a brief English description). Europeana 1914-1918 welcomes ongoing contributions from individuals to add to their rich collection. [MMB]

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, August 7, 10:06 PM
Walk into any natural history museum or zoo, and you will notice placards that provide information about the exhibits. These are a form of augmented reality that we take so much for granted that we don't typically distinguish them as anything other than reality. With our new ability to carry information in our pockets, we are suddenly much more aware of that augmentation, making it feel like something new. Certainly, its ubiquity is new, but it draws much from those exhibit notices, and from books and items such as baseball cards. Incorporating fun instant info into the learning process can help energize that process, regardless of whether it's done through new technology or old.
