we'll become, if not currently are, absolutely  google- dependants, (which is not a good thing)  but they seem to think much faster than the rest of the world. So have a look at this huge  library. Productive browsing!

Forget About Learning Styles. Here’s Something Better. « Annie Murphy Paul | TechLib | Scoop.it

"Whenever I speak to audiences about the science of learning, as I’ve been doing a lot this fall, one topic always comes up in the Q&A sessions that follow my talk: learning styles. Learning styles—the notion that each student has a particular mode by which he or she learns best, whether it’s visual, auditory or some other sense—is enormously popular. It’s also been thoroughly debunked."

This game has analytics so it might be helpful for a formative assessment.  Also the reading required can be helpful in measuring content and comprehension skills.  Worth a look!

The Teacher's Quick Guide To Digital Scavenger Hunts - Edudemic

The Teacher's Quick Guide To Digital Scavenger Hunts - Edudemic | TechLib | Scoop.it
If you've got a smartphone or a tablet in your classroom, you're ready for the adventure to begin! By adventure I mean digital scavenger hunts.

 

Digital scavenger hunts should be carefully prepared so don’t rush into them. They’re fun and, if done properly, will get students excited to do another one. If instead students spend the entire time asking you, the teacher, questions … then it’s not ideal. Instead, make sure the hunt is planned out so that the students can only ask questions of each other. That’s likely the best way to keep the active learning process in high gear.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 15, 2013 11:14 PM

Some great ideas here for engagement. A digital scavenger hunt is like the old WebQuest (oh no, now these are old!) where students follow a path to various clues. They can be very subject-specific or quite broad. I think it would be a good way of introducting a self-paced programme.
