The question we might want to ask is whether bullying worse today? If it is, that does not bode well. How will we deal with that?

6 Factors Of Gamification That Changes Students - TeachThought

6 Factors Of Gamification That Changes Students - TeachThought | The power of Play | Scoop.it
I was 11 the year my summer camp director transformed the regular schedule, procedures, and lingo that we were used to—into the most memorable, enriching experience I had ever encountered at that point in my life.

I had no idea that he had ‘gamified’ the week; I just knew that it was the best summer ever. Instead of grouping us by numbers, we were named after the Greek alphabet. We competed daily against the other groups in volleyball, softball, kickball, and on the final night —a chariot and Olympic flame opened an epic Olympic Game contest at midnight.

The director, or ‘game master’ as we were inclined to call him, even made everyone reset the clocks and watches—so we never knew what the real time was, the entire schedule was set on some sort of crazy alternate schedule. Now I realize that it probably allowed him to sleep in and us to stay up later, but we were none the wiser.

Daily we played games, wrote skits, went swimming, and competed for cleanest cabins. We did all the regular stuff, but it was more fun because there were rules and boundaries and points and collaboration and competition and a clear, mutual understanding of goals and performance and criteria for success.

As a student, I got to learn more about the power of ‘gamifying’ something, and what effect it had on learners.

With gaming you get to learn that there are students who are of talent sitting in the class who do not respond to regular teaching tactics. In gaming you learn from your mistakes and get points for trying.

Jewelelelel's curator insight, March 8, 11:09 AM

I think that not everyone is as smart as they might seem to be.Eg some people may act as if they have understood what the teacher is saying but actually the might not as they do not want to be mocked by his or her friends. In this fast growing society ,as the population is increasing, 1 teacher may have to tech 30-40 students depending on the situation.The teacher is not able to ensure that everyone in his or her class understands what he or she s saying.There would be some shy students who do not dare to ask the teacher or friends questions,if the students does this for all subjects ,there would not be any point for the students to continue schooling as the student is not absorbing anything.Although i know that the teachers are not the ones to be blamed for but i believe that the teacher themselves would be able to know who is lacking behind and needs help.I hope that the teacher would help the students who are in need and answer their quarries :)

Fostering a positive environment with empathy-based learning in physical education courses

 

What is Quality PE? Quality PE integrates empathy. 

An empathetic instructional approach facilitates more positive experiences for students and brings about a greater chance to impact the long-term health of participants.  Positive early PE experiences will lead to an overall positive attitude towards physical activity for life. 

It’s important to remember that teaching empathy in the classroom is a developmental construct; it takes time.  The effort of physical educators should be to humanize PE by making students feel more comfortable, confident and supported....
