Leuk om zo via een zijweg weer tegen GameSalad aan te lopen

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 7:36 AM

Kind of seems like a sales pitch, but with cool infographics, this offers some insight into where gaming is heading in the future. Open-ended solutions and level complexity will surely be explorer. For educators, this is excellent news. Higher-level thinking and critical thinking skills need to be developed. Future gaming can play a role in getting kids to think rather than falling back on rote memorization techniques.

The Survival Guide for Teaching with Mobile Devices : Teacher Reboot Camp

The Survival Guide for Teaching with Mobile Devices : Teacher Reboot Camp | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"I believe mobile devices transform learning when integrated effectively. Our students have powerful devices that they can carry in their pockets. With their devices students  can capture images, make videos, record audio, access the Internet, and so much more!  These tools will work without Internet access. When we download apps and have Internet access, our learners have endless opportunities to learn by creating."

Sometimes, iOS’s autocorrect feature gets us into deep trouble, or just makes for a very funny joke. This week, we are going to show you how to turn off the autocorrect feature on your iPad so that, when you are quickly typing those iMessages and emails, you won’t accidentally hit send before correcting, “Can you give me a rise to the shaping mall?”

6 Ways To Support Students Without Internet Access At Home - TeachThought

6 Ways To Support Students Without Internet Access At Home - TeachThought | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"While some students enjoy unlimited access to the Internet and other digital technology, there are other students, just as capable and full of potential, who struggle to learn even the basics of computer use due to a lack of access. Our world heavily relies on Internet technology for everyday communication, education, and work. Over time, students without Internet access will face massive disadvantages, including:

    *Lack of basic research skills

    *Lack of networking skills

    *Inability or extreme difficulty in pursuing a degree in higher ed

    *Difficulty searching and applying for jobs

    *Insufficient qualifications for many jobs"

"This post is not to set the record straight with the armchair critics that litter the internet, but to provide some actual real life examples to counter what I am seeing as many people talking out of their backsides. A good teacher is still central to the learning process and it is their management that determines whether these myths have any truth to them."

Five-Minute Film Festival: 8 Interactive Video Tools for Engaging Learners | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"It's no secret that I am a passionate advocate for using video in the classroom. When used well, videos can help students make connections to people and ideas beyond their usual frame of reference. That's why I've been really excited to see a wave of new (and mostly free or low-cost!) tech tools recently that enable teachers to take favorite clips and make them more valuable for educational use. Whether you use videos to flip your classroom or you just appreciate the power of video to engage kids, maybe one of the tools in my playlist below will help you go deeper in 2014."

"Everybody is talking about 21st Century skills and preparing students for a whole different world. The truth is that our students have become digital and there are a whole lot of educators around the world who are still “analog”. That is why I would like to share my work with my two secondary school groups with as many teachers as possible. Internet and Technology in the Classroom have made a huge change in my daily teaching experience."

But are teachers ready for the move and how will they engage pupils with the subject?"
