Education 3.0: Altering Round Peg in Round Hole Education

Education 3.0: Altering Round Peg in Round Hole Education | Interactive Digital Tools | Scoop.it

"What follows is my Ignite talk for ISTE 2013.  It was rejected by the selection committee.  As I already conceptualized the talk and think it is such an important topic, I am disseminating my text and slides via my blog and Slideshare.  First, Education 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 are described.  Later, I discuss the consequences of Education 1.0 vs Education 3.0 on learners (and educators!) especially those that do not fit the mold of Education 1.0."

Thanks go to Jackie Gerstein for sharing this presentation so we may learn more about the shift from Education 1.0 to Education 2.0 to Education 3.0. The slides are available on her blog as well as a link to Slideshare. Additional links to information are available as you read through the text in the post.

GAMBIT: Load Game: A Closed World

GAMBIT: Load Game: A Closed World | Interactive Digital Tools | Scoop.it

Have you ever been so frustrated, so fed up with where you are, that you just want to throw it all away and run off to somewhere new? In A Closed World you play as a young person who has decided to do exactly that. This console RPG-like game puts you in the shoes of a young resident of a village just outside a forest that everyone says is a place of no return. Supposedly home to hungering demons and a beast that would destroy the village, the forest is forbidden and nobody knows what's on the other side. However, our hero's beloved -- tired of the oppressive attitude of the villagers -- decided to go there, as anywhere would be better than home. Now it's your turn to follow after. Are you willing to risk everything to find out what's on the other side?
