Fake It To Make It is a simulation-style game where players take on the role of someone creating and distributing fake news for profit. Players learn how misinformation is created, spread, and emotionally targeted, and leave better prepared to be skeptical of misinformation that they encounter in the future.

Fake It To Make It es un juego que, apostando por la terrible actualidad, logra crear un entorno educativo. El jugador tiene que crear y difundir noticias para obtener beneficios, pasando por las etapas de creación, localización de un objetivo emocional, difusión... En definitiva, es un título que prepara al que lo termina para un futuro de escepticismo con las informaciones que reciba.

Neuroeducation Will Lead to Big Breakthroughs in Learning

Neuroeducation Will Lead to Big Breakthroughs in Learning | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

As neuroscience brings greater understanding of the human brain, experts are applying those findings in the classroom to improve how we teach and learn.


In recent decades we’ve seen the rise of an emerging interdisciplinary field that brings together neuroscientists and educators. As technologies like brain mapping and scanning continue to advance our understanding of the human brain, a sub-sector of experts are applying those findings to the classroom. Instead of being based on traditional or individual assumptions about learning, education is beginning to be treated more like a science. The new discipline, neuroeducation, serves to apply the scientific method to curricula design and teaching strategies. This comes with attempts for a more objective understanding of learning that is based on evidence. What Is Neuroeducation? All human abilities, including learning, are a result of our brain activity. Hence, a better understanding of how our brains operate can result in a better understanding of learning. As we continue to unravel the issues and limitations of traditional education, many solutions involve a better scientific basis behind how we teach. The goal of neuroeducation (also known as mind and brain education or educational neuroscience) is to solidify a scientific basis in teaching and learning. The field uses the latest findings from neuroscience, psychology, and cognitive science to inform education and consequently, teaching strategies.

¿Qué es la neuroeducación? 
 Todas las habilidades humanas, incluido el aprendizaje, son el resultado de nuestra actividad cerebral. Por lo tanto, una mejor comprensión de cómo funciona nuestro cerebro puede resultar en una mejor comprensión del aprendizaje.
Dani Rivera's curator insight, November 2, 11:35 AM
It shows findings in neuroeducation and how does that affect the nree metholodiges and techniques for teaching int he classroom, for instance that affective filters is linked with theories like neurolinguistic and linguistic programming, (you are able to understand and to perfom activities if you think you can do it and have the abilities to do it), another finding is that in the future mind mappings could be done per individuals of the brain, this means that teachers in the future will be able to understand the synapsis of the brain of the students, in order to know how they learn and how their neurons activate through different learning styles.

Teaching in a Digital Age | The Open Textbook Project provides flexible and affordable access to higher education resources | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

The book examines the underlying principles that guide effective teaching in an age when all of us, and in particular the students we are teaching, are using technology. A framework for making decisions about your teaching is provided, while understanding that every subject is different, and every instructor has something unique and special to bring to their teaching.The book enables teachers and instructors to help students develop the knowledge and skills they will need in a digital age: not so much the IT skills, but the thinking and attitudes to learning that will bring them success.

"Although the book contains many practical examples, it is more than a cookbook on how to teach. It addresses the following questions: is the nature of knowledge changing, and how do different views on the nature of knowledge result in different approaches to teaching? what is the science and research that can best help me in my teaching? how do I decide whether my courses should be face-to-face, blended or fully online? what strategies work best when teaching in a technology-rich environment? what methods of teaching are most effective for blended and online classes? how do I make choices among all the available media, whether text, audio, video, computer, or social media, in order to benefit my students and my subject? how do I maintain high quality in my teaching in a rapidly changing learning environment while managing my workload? what are the real possibilities for teaching and learning using MOOCs, OERS, open textbooks?"
