Fake It To Make It | Games for Change

Fake It To Make It | Games for Change | TicherVirtual | Scoop.it

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.

Interesting tool for teaching students to recognize fake news.
Presenters's curator insight, November 26, 2017 3:38 PM
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.

Perusall is a useful tool for turning a face to face course into blended learning without too much extra work.

Ariana Amorim's curator insight, September 26, 2017 4:28 AM
Order and assign textbooks, articles, or your PDFs in Perusall. Students annotate the readings and asynchronously respond to each other's comments and questions about the readings in context. With novel data analytics, Perusall automatically generates optimal student groupings and social interactions, grades students' engagement to ensure they are prepared for class, and nudges those who need help to keep everyone on track.

Online education still in the shadows

Online education still in the shadows | TicherVirtual | Scoop.it
Almost every week I meet colleagues who are skeptical about online education. Online is often considered a poor and limited alternative to the "rich experience" of classroom teaching and many point to lower completion rates, lack of human contact and complicated technology as reasons. The facts, however, point in the opposite direction as an article in Inside Higher Ed discusses, Why Faculty Still Don’t Want to Teach Online. The reluctance to get involved in online education is mostly due to low awareness of the issues involved, lack of practical experience as well as a lack of support and incentives within the institution.

Via Edumorfosis
Claudia Andrade's insight:
Online learning demands additional skills and time. Time is scarce these days at University level since teachers have to do lots of activities such as planning, teaching, tutoring, research, administrative things, etc, etc, etc.

Digital Literacy Does Not Mean Critical Thinking

Digital Literacy Does Not Mean Critical Thinking | TicherVirtual | Scoop.it
Nik Peachey, for example, in his recent book, Thinking Critically Through Digital Media (2016), talks about how students are generally taught how to work with information through passive engagement. He suggests developing digital literacies, including understanding and analyzing what they are seeing. They need to “assess the validity, credibility and underlying bias of the information they study” and be “given a range of research tools and techniques for reassessing the information and evaluating how it fits within their personal framework of belief systems and values.”

Via Nik Peachey
Claudia Andrade's insight:
Interesting points to differentiate digital literacy from digital skills, it includes a valuable link to a book and an article that goes deeper on the topic.

Build Speaking & Pronunciation Tasks into your Moodle Course

Build Speaking & Pronunciation Tasks into your Moodle Course | TicherVirtual | Scoop.it

Like many teachers and language course designers, I’m usually pretty sceptical about a computers’ ability to evaluate student speaking, especially given the range of variation in native speaker output, but I think SpeechAce does a really good job of getting students to produce language, giving them feedback on their performance and encouraging them to listen and try again.
