Kasey Howard's curator insight, September 21, 10:37 PM

Powerful suggestions for educators the implement game based learning into their classrooms. One suggestion encourages teachers to play games themselves to better understand gaming culture and to have personal knowledge of what they would be using in their classrooms. Advocacy is also strongly encouraged.

A Third Grader’s Plea For More Game-Based Learning - MindShift | STEAM - Using Digital Tools to ignite and stimulate learning with kids | Scoop.it

"Third grader Cordell Steiner makes a pretty convincing argument for using video games in the classroom in this TEDx talk. He describes feeling more motivated to learn and master new skills because of his eagerness to beat his own high score or finish before the clock runs out. He says he used to be bored in class when his teachers had to slow down to explain concepts, but now each student plays games intended to help him or her with specific skills they’re trying to master. He even gives examples!"

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A new way of assembling things, called metamaterials, may in the not too distant future help to protect a building from earthquakes by bending seismic waves around it. Similarly, tsunami waves could be bent around towns, and soundwaves bent around a room to make it soundproof
