The Difference between Gamification and Game-Based Learning

The Difference between Gamification and Game-Based Learning | STEAM | Scoop.it
By Steven Isaacs Have you tried to gamify your classroom? Do you incorporate game-based learning into your curriculum? Gamification and game-based learning have become buzzwords in education yet some general confusion still exists regarding what each is and what each is not. I would love to clear up any misconceptions. Gamification Gamification is the idea of adding game elements to a nongame situation. Corporate reward programs are a good example. They reward users for certain behaviors. Starbu

Music education key to raising literacy and numeracy standards

Music education key to raising literacy and numeracy standards | STEAM | Scoop.it
Instead of agonising over why Australian students can't or won't study maths or science perhaps we should concentrate on improving the nation's cognitive capacity via music lessons.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:

At present many principals have direct control over the provision of music education in their schools. They don't need a state or federal program mandate to include music education in each child's educational experience. They only need access to the neuroscientific research to understand how beneficial music education could be to their bottom line, educationally and economically.

Snapshots Of Understanding? 10 Smart Tools For Digital Exit Slips
Adrian Bertolini's insight:

The format of an exit ticket varies. Educators can use a variety of question/activity types. There are multiple choice, true or false, short written response, matching, cloze (fill in the blank) and survey or polls to name but a few. In terms of classroom implementation, exit tickets should be short, concise and engage learners in a review of the skills, concepts and experiences explored during the lesson. They are also ideal for continuing the learning into the next class – many educators begin with the exit tickets from the previous lesson to activate students’ previous knowledge.
