Teaching reading to students of any age can be overwhelming. The volume of skills and strategies children need to acquire, along with the need to select appropriate materials, can overwhelm the best teacher.

How Technology Can Change Assessment

How Technology Can Change Assessment | Mohamed | Scoop.it

Many discussions of technology-based assessments concentrate on automating current methods of testing to save time and cost. However, technology also changes what educators can assess, how and when to assess it, and for what purpose. Assessments can be embedded in ICTs, and have the potential to measure learning processes, in addition to end-of-lesson knowledge.

Training teachers through innovative methodologies based in serious games

Training teachers through innovative methodologies based in serious games | Mohamed | Scoop.it

When using the SimAULA platform, the teacher in training controls an avatar that interacts with student avatars (controlled automatically by SimAULA) in a virtual classroom, where lessons are taught and a series of situations liable to arise in a face-to-face environment are played out. By way of a specific example, the first version of SimAULA features a simulated biology class in which the teacher avatar has to help student avatars fulfil various learning goals.

Thanks Nik, I can see this being useful for all sorts of disciplines not just teaching. If this is really as flexible as is suggested it might replace some work currently done in virtual worlds.
Karen Johnson's curator insight, January 21, 2013 4:12 AM

In the future this could be be very useful for disciplines other than teaching.  I wonder if it will be flexible enough to replace some aspects of what we currently do in virtual worlds.
