Mind/Shift has run a series on digital games and learning and has not put together a guide that provides the highlights of this series. Why? To quote from the post... "to create a dynamic, in-depth guide that answers many of the most pressing questions that educators, parents, and life-long learners have raised around using digital games for learning."

A few of the topics covered are:

* What Research Says About Gaming and Screen Time

* How to Start Using Games for Digital Learning

* Overcoming Obstacles for Using Digital Games in the Classroom

The post provides a more in-depth overview.

E-learning platform Moodle Mobile arrives on Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone

E-learning platform Moodle Mobile arrives on Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone | Social Learning Trends | Scoop.it

Moodle, for those who did not know, is a popular e-learning platform that has a user base of over 50 thousand registered and verified school sites, serving over 60 million users, in over 6 million courses, with over 1.2 million teachers. The official Moodle Mobile app is now available for those of you on Windows Phone and Windows 8.1.

Moodle, which stands for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment, is a popular choice for schools when it comes to e-learning. Moodle allows school instructors to create online course calendars, online quizzes, class announcements, and much more. Students are also able to submit assignments, download course materials, and much more.

First discovered by the folks at WPCentral, the official Moodle Mobile app for both Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 has arrived in their respective stores. Both apps are free to download.

"Our Moodle Mobile app is a HTML5-based client that connects to an installed Moodle server. It does not try to replicate everything that Moodle does - we are focused on providing features that are most useful on a standalone app, such as offline access to content, messaging and notifications," the app description reads. Here are the key features of the app:

Seven Web-based Tools for Delivering Flipped Lessons

Seven Web-based Tools for Delivering Flipped Lessons | Social Learning Trends | Scoop.it

"This fall there will be teachers trying the flipped classroom approach to lessons for the first time. In the right setting the flipped classroom model can work well. My favorite tools for creating flipped lessons include the option to insert questions for students to answer while watching the video instead of waiting until the end to answer a series of questions. I also like tools that provide students with the opportunity to submit questions to their teachers while they are watching videos. These tools offer those options."

7 Ways to Deal With Digital Distractions in the Classroom | Edudemic | Social Learning Trends | Scoop.it

To educators who embrace new technologies wholeheartedly, digital devices are a powerful tool for creating an engaged and individualized educational experience. To those that are a little more hesitant, digital devices seem more like a quick route to Instagram and Facebook — that is, to distractions that interfere with the educational experience, rather than boosting it.

Albert Einstein said: “Your imagination is a preview of coming attractions.” When we consider education, does this mean that we will eventually live in a world where learning feels more like play and everyone has access to equal education?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 23, 2014 5:04 PM

I am not one who wants to predict that far ahead. I love the Einstein quote, but am not sure we should be imagining that far forward. The other point is learning and School should feel more like play. Dewey, Montessori, Whitehead, etc. suggested this long ago. We do not have to imagine that far forward. What if we imagined what that could look like in the next few years?

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning | Social Learning Trends | Scoop.it

I believe in student-centered learning, and I believe there is huge potential for this kind of learning to occur in online environments. But the instructor is a key element of that learning, and we need to talk more explicitly about what her role is and the specific ways she negotiates and leverages her authority, guidance, and presence to design learning environments in which emergence is possible.
