20 Apps (Games) for Play-Based Learning | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Even though older adults might still carry a negative association with video game consoles and devices, today’s technology is vastly different than it was 20 years ago. Apps have exploded on the scene, and while there are plenty of time wasting games available on the market, today’s offerings also include a wide range of affordable apps that enrich learning and allow for quick on-the-go play. Whether your child is waiting for the doctor or relaxing on a long car ride, the following apps are some of the best games that pack an educational punch.

As Digital Learning Draws New Users, Transformation Will Occur : Education Next

As Digital Learning Draws New Users, Transformation Will Occur : Education Next | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

By Michael B. Horn

 

"The growth of online, or digital, learning presents real opportunities for transforming the nation’s public-education system to enable it to customize an education for each child and boost student achievement dramatically and affordably. Whether digital learning will fulfill its potential remains to be seen. The policies and regulations that govern online providers will certainly matter.

 

"There are real disagreements over what set of policies would best enable digital learning to achieve its potential. It may be some time before a sufficient track record exists so that the current regulatory issues can be resolved. And there is another significant question to be addressed as well. As new policies and regulations governing digital learning are adopted, should they apply to the rest of the education system?"

Alistair Parker's curator insight, January 30, 2013 3:57 AM

Beth Dichter's insight:

This is a great interactive model of critical thinking. One circle has 8 elements of thought:
* Purpose

* Question at issue

* Information

* Interpretation and influence

* Concepts

* Assumptions

* Implications and Consequences

* Point of View

As you role over and selelct an element of thought you are hown additional information about the element. For example, if you were to select Point of View  you would be prompted to understand your point of view and provided with questions to further your thinking. In addition there are also prompts for intellectual standards to consider. The intellectual standards include: clarity, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth, logic, significance, and fairness. In each of these area there is a brief definition as well a three additional questions to consider. There is also one choice (more) that provides you with additional standards you might want to consider and suggests that you think of your own.

R Hollingsworth's curator insight, January 30, 2013 9:33 AM

I'm thinking this is a pretty complicated model given that many of our very best critical thinking is done within the space of a blink!  However, it's useful to be able to break it down and explain it for undergraduates for whom universities have great expectations in criticial thinking but don't really explain how they know what it is when they see it.  And, sadly, in introductory courses too often professors don't expect critical thinking of their students - sticking too close to recall or lower levels of application thinking for their expectations of student performance.

Sandra V. Barbosa's curator insight, January 26, 2013 9:26 PM

Se você perguntar a um aluno o que o torna bem sucedido na escola, provavelmente você não ouvirá sobre de algum livro fantástico novo ou série de palestras . Muito provavelmente você vai ouvir algo como: "Foi tudo o Sr. Jones. Ele simplesmente nunca desistiu de mim. "
O que os alunos tiram de uma educação bem-sucedida, geralmente vem de uma ligação pessoal com um professor que incutiu a paixão e inspiração por determinada aprendizagem.

This is the third in a series exploring creativity in the digital classroom and it focuses on literacy resources in your classroom. Groman makes a note that the Common Core includes the following statements:

* “Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners …”

* “Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others …”

The use of digital resources and digital tools will help meet these goals and this post provides information on the following tools:

* Kidblog

* Classchatter

* Wikispace for Education

* Weebly

* Wikipedia

* ePubBud

* Meet me at the Corner

* Edmodo or My Big Campus

Have fun exploring!
