There is that no suggestion is made to the potential of digital games to boost humanities fields. Oh, sorry, I forgot. No one cares about humanities anymore. Do excuse me.

Social indeed. I'm not sure that's necessarily ground breaking, but a good discussion of some potential shifts.

Game-Based Learning Is Probably Worth Looking Into

Game-Based Learning Is Probably Worth Looking Into | Technology in English Language Arts | Scoop.it

Jessica Trybus of the New Media Institute makes an interesting point. “Deconstruct the fun in any good game,” she says, “and it becomes clear that what makes it enjoyable is the built-in learning process.”

Good basic introduction to the pros and cons of game-based learning

Marc E. Moglen's comment, June 19, 2013 8:58 AM
At first, I did not like this article's title, but now I find it appropriate. It seems as if it is still not clear what the practical effects of digital games in the learning environment will be (I say "will" as it seems inevitable). Justin Boyle does mention a study that showed (in the case of University students) that "despite the better written and group assignment performance of the traditionally educated subjects, the game-enhanced students completed the course with better average scores overall". This is a concerning finding as it suggests that games may be readily adopted if it is shown that they can increase student performance (e.g. grades), yet the fact that games may lower actual facets of educational progress (e.g. group work) will probably be swept under the carpet.

another uuseful research about iPads in the classroom. Gives an insight of erent experience,

I specially liked the words:

“No technology has an impact on learning in its own right; rather, its impact depends on how it is used… The question that should be asked is not ‘Can iPads support learning?’ but rather ‘How can iPads be used to support collaborative learning, or exploratory learning’, or whatever…”

An awesome resource on integrating language learning and technology.  Plenty of sites listed for different target areas.

This is a well organised a very interesting book for the modern language teacher. Just look at the table in the introduction to each chapter and you will find a wealth of ideas for language teaching.
