Student engagement is tricky, but it’s also vitally important. When students are engaged in a lesson, they pay attention, ask questions, actively participate, and ultimately learn more.

But how can you increase student engagement in your classroom? How can you get young people to find grammar or science fascinating?

You can start by trying these 8 must have gamification apps, tools, and resources with your students.

Jobs at All Levels Now Require Digital Literacy. Here's Proof. 

Jobs at All Levels Now Require Digital Literacy. Here's Proof.  | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Newark, Del.

It's no secret that American workplaces are becoming more reliant on technology.

But what may surprise the country's K-12 educators and policymakers is how work at nearly every rung of the employment ladder is becoming more digitized. Often, the skills needed to succeed have less to do with computer programming than what experts call "digital literacy"—the ability to interpret, create, and strategically use digital information.

"Everyone's job is changing," said Mark Muro, a senior fellow and policy director at the Brookings Institution, a think tank. "The ability to read and then conduct first-order analysis of digital information is highly valued in almost all work environments."

To better understand the central role of digital literacy in the workplace, Education Week took a deep look at four occupations in the Christiana Care Health System. It's the largest private employer in Delaware, with 11,600 employees and an expected 1,500 new hires this year.

Three Good Places to Find Music and Sounds for Multimedia Projects

Three Good Places to Find Music and Sounds for Multimedia Projects | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Two weeks ago my tip of the week prompted a bunch of questions from readers regarding where to find and how to use music in multimedia projects. Much like with videos watched on YouTube or streamed through Netflix, just because you can listen to a piece of music online that doesn’t mean you necessarily have the rights to re-use it in a multimedia project. That’s why I recommend trying to find music and sound effects that are either in the public domain or have a Creative Commons license that allows for re-use. To that end, here are three good sources that I recommend.

How do we teach students to identify fake news? | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
In a “post-truth” era where people are increasingly influenced by their emotions and beliefs over factual information, fact and fiction can be difficult to distinguish, and fake news can spread rapidly through mainstream media sources and social networks. Moreover, fake news is often meant to do harm, by tricking us into believing a lie or unfairly discrediting a person or political movement.

A Regina high school teacher is using the international smash hit video game Minecraft to teach his students math.

"I was inspired by my own kids — seeing them play Minecraft and building things," said Dean Vendramin, who teaches math and photography at O'Neill high school.

Minecraft involves building structures out of blocks.

"It's almost like playing with digital Lego," Vendramin said.
