How To Integrate Video Games In The Classroom...

Why video games work in learning isn’t easy to answer. Some of it has to do with their engaging characteristics and their natural interdependence with other media, while the inherent gamification elements and diverse selection also factor in as wall.

But a powerful concept to consider is transfer.

A fantastic blog post by the master James Paul Gee.

 

"A digital game is a play-based, well-designed, problem-solving experience meant to create motivation, engagement, and often creativity.  Humans learn best from well-mentored, guided experience centered on interesting problems to solve, clear goals, copious feedback, and a relatively low cost for failure.  This is what good games."

Lisi Gopin, M.E.T.'s curator insight, December 13, 2012 3:29 AM

Games are natural problem solving environments, which encourage creativity - very important for kids to learn early on!

Could Minecraft be the next great engineering school?

Could Minecraft be the next great engineering school? | Games and education | Scoop.it
On the Boulevard Saint-Michel, near the center of Paris, just off the edge of the Jardin du Luxembourg and just a short stroll from the Sorbonne sits the main campus of the École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris.

The new, new MOOC

Minecraft has become a kind of anarchic massive open online course (MOOC) all on its own, without developing courseware or costly new program licenses. Part of the proliferation is due to user-created video, particularly on YouTube, where a quick search yields 7.5 million mentions. Video podcasts, recordings of building in progress and most importantly, walkthroughs, or videos of players demonstrating how to master levels or particular construction techniques, keep the global Minecraft horde digging and trying to impress or teach one another, forming a key part of the informal player-to-player education that makes the game a fascinating phenomenon to observe.
