A Beautiful Visual on The Importance of Games in Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Beautiful Visual on The Importance of Games in Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Game Based Learning (GBL) - Serious Games | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach

 

"Games are very important for learning and James Paul Gee has empirically proved this in his wonderful book " What Video Games Have to Teach Us about Learning and Literacy". Gee argues that games,particularly video games,  require the players to learn and think in ways at which they are not adept. He further states that games provide a life enhancing experience for learners and they also revolutionize the routinized ways of learning through fusing learning and play. You can learn more about Gee's book in this post I have published a few months ago.

"Regarding the importance of games and why they are good for learning, I am sharing with you the graphic below which visualizes some of the pluses of playing games for learners. Check it out and share with us what you think of it."

"The videogame Minecraft has sold almost 14 million copies and has redefined the term indie game. Now thousands of teachers across the world are using MinecraftEDU in the classroom."

 

"MinecraftEDU is a plugin that turns the consumer version of Minecraft into a true teaching tool. The EDU mod adds ways to funnel students and control activities; adds border blocks to limit students to specific areas; instruction blocks to provide initial questions or problems to solve; and adds tools for class management such as teleporting students to the teacher's location, and muting them — a tool many teachers would like in the real world.

 

"Even if your teachers aren't aware of Minecraft, your students almost certainly are. Minecraft is a cultural phenomenon. It may have been designed as a game but Minecraft is world which engages students in a way that shouldn't be ignored. As with other new technologies that schools are currently wrestling with — tablets, social networks, and blogs etc. — Minecraft is a technology that students are engaged with at home, so why not continue that in school?

 

"In a genuine sense MinecraftEDU takes the rules of social etiquette we expect in the classroom and creates digital alternatives that bring order to a limitless world. Admittedly I've never had to excavate a student who had dug too far underground and had got lost in an ICT class before, but there's still a chance."
