6 Basic Benefits Of Game-Based Learning

6 Basic Benefits Of Game-Based Learning | Education and Training in Advanced Technologies | Scoop.it

"There seems to be a perception that online gaming has a detrimental impact on children’s development. Nothing could be further from the truth, and there are countless–and complex–reasons for this, but it also makes sense at the basic benefits of game-based learning. Of course children should not spend every single second of the day staring at a computer screen. Nevertheless, education and online gaming certainly aren’t enemies either. In fact, playing online games may be something which can enhance a child’s learning and development. How?"

Games are like computers : tools. Let's use/play them to turn them into great assets  -and not damaging instruments ;-) Hence the necessity of teaching learners how to remain their tools' masters.

Games can be helpful if you know how to "play" with them and the benefits for children in the process-learning.

How To Prepare Students For 21st Century Survival

How To Prepare Students For 21st Century Survival | Education and Training in Advanced Technologies | Scoop.it

"As educators, we constantly strive to prepare our students for the ‘real world’ that exists around them... We want to prepare them to lead productive and successful lives once they leave us and enter into the realm of adulthood. But what lies ahead for our students in the future? Did educators of twenty years ago know that so much of our world would be based on computers and technology now? Could they have known what skills would be needed in the job market today? Unlikely, but yet they had to do their best to prepare their students for this world anyhow. Nowadays, educators are still charged with the same complicated task – preparing students for the unknown."
