Some nice suggestions here. I would also question whether students will continue to need to take exams given that so much data will be available regarding their course work and interaction with materials.

Why Profs Are Spending So Much Time Writing Crap That Nobody Reads | Stay tuned | Scoop.it

All of this is very unfortunate. Ideally, the great academic minds of a society should be put to work for the sake of building up that society and addressing its problems. Instead, most Western academics today are using their intellectual capital to answer questions that nobody’s asking on pages that nobody’s reading.

The Gamification Guide - How To Gamify Your Class in 3 Stages

The Gamification Guide - How To Gamify Your Class in 3 Stages | Stay tuned | Scoop.it
Gamification is the use of game-mechanics and elements in non-game contexts. For the last six years, I’ve used gamification to turn my classroom into a video game to help motivate, engage, and empower my students. I’ve done hundreds of presentations on my unique style of gamification and have worked with dozens of teachers to turn their classroom into a video game. One of the things I’m always told is that an in-depth guide would be useful, so I wrote one!

Thinking Critically through Digital Media

Thinking Critically through Digital Media | Stay tuned | Scoop.it

In a world where anyone with an internet connection can access, create and share information, opinions and beliefs, it has become increasingly important that students are not only able to assess the credibility of sources but also to look more deeply at the underlying motivations, beliefs and bias of the creator.
Thinking Critically through Digital Media enables teachers to use authentic materials and digital tools combined with motivating communicative tasks to develop students’ abilities to function as critical and well informed digital citizens.

Increase student engagement with podcasts

Increase student engagement with podcasts | Stay tuned | Scoop.it
Much of the research on whether students are more engaged when using podcasts and other multimedia tools has so far focused mainly on college students. It’s been shown that some students, especially those who reported low levels of interest in the course, are more engaged when using podcasts in combination with traditional education tools. Until more research is done in K-12, we can assume that these results translate to younger students as well.
