Video Games for Learning

Leona: "How can digital games support conceptual learning? And how can games be made accessible and useful for teachers?" Possible Worlds, a five-year research and development project aimed at addressing these questions. The project developed four modules of supplemental materials, each built around a digital game. Each module focuses on a persistent scientific misconception. This video provides information about how the games were developed and summarizes the theory and research behind the project.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 5, 2014 12:22 PM

I am sure there are more than 21 things. One that jumped out for me was greeting each student daily and listening to them.

 

Not everything is digital which the author points out once in #6. A no-tech day is not just nostalgic. It is about being present in ways we cannot be digitally. A key for teachers will be the ways the integrate various media into their teaching.

How Blended Learning Has Changed

How Blended Learning Has Changed | Teacher Education | Scoop.it

“Blended learning takes advantage of the power of technology to deliver training “just in time,” anywhere and anytime. However, in blended learning, technology (and in particular, online education) is not used as an isolated tool, but as a key part of a comprehensive workplace performance solution. Online education, therefore, is not considered the only means to educate, but it should be considered an adjunct to the overall education process.” Evolution of Blended Learning.


Actually giving learners the power to decide where, when and how they’ll learn is the ultimate example of Blended Learning — rather than trying to control what happens when. 

 

This is sometimes a difficult idea for teachers to take on — the siren song of control is a sweet one, and giving it up causes a messy and chaotic environment.  But once you’ve experienced seeing students take responsibility for their own learning it’s a powerful idea.
