5 ways to gamify writing in the classroom

5 ways to gamify writing in the classroom | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

"Believe it or not, writing is a natural fit for gamification techniques.

 

You’ve surely noticed how your class gets engaged as soon as you introduce a game into the teaching process. The students get competitive, but that’s a healthy competition you want to nurture."

What Educators Need to Know About Technology Addiction

What Educators Need to Know About Technology Addiction | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

Look around, and it's easy to see how media and technology have changed our day-to-day lives, even compared to a decade ago. We bring our devices with us everywhere and depend on them for work, school, play, and our social lives. But what are the downsides to this "always connected" lifestyle -- especially for kids?

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, May 8, 12:55 AM
Great article about the pitfalls of what is called "technology addiction."  I see this all the time as a teacher, as students use their iPhones, tablets, and chromebooks for basic communication.  In many cases, social contact between students and teachers is via text or email, with face-to-face communication getting rarer by the day.  Many students have lost the ability to function effectively in a live social situation.  Cyber bullying, where bullies remain anonymous, is getting worse.  This is too much of a good thing.  I often ask my students how they would communicate, do their assignments, and write their papers if cell phone towers and web servers go down.  These digital tools will be useless if towers are taken down by natural or human-made disasters.  Something to think about.

Is Immediate Feedback Always Best?

Is Immediate Feedback Always Best? | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

For decades we’ve heard the mantra, “immediate feedback is best.” But is this always the case? We often simplify learning in the classroom as a response to positive and negative feedback that motivates our students to perform.

Giselle Pempedjian's insight:

Emma seems to be a caring and hardworking learner. To seriously prepare her assignment and make sure to submit promptly are signs of acing a task.  

Would have Emma received a grade higher than 94 if she was given immediate feedback on her assignment?

In my view, quality feedback is always better than immediate feedback.
