We have updated our Apps for Special Education list with an additional 40 apps. Also check out that the list columns correlate to many of the app rubrics that are used to determine the effectiveness of an app in a particular setting or with a particular user. We hope you find this useful when making considered decisions about app selection when using these rubrics.

Games for Learning: Why Games Are Effective Educational Tools

Games for Learning: Why Games Are Effective Educational Tools | Nicole C Project Research | Scoop.it

By Adam Coccari

 

I am a 4th and 6th grade teacher that has been utilizing games in my lessons and tutoring sessions for a few years now. If I had suggested just five years ago that video games could play a major part in classroom education, the majority of teachers and school administrators would have laughed at me. Now, there seems to be somewhat of a sea change happening in this field. Educators are starting to believe what many researchers and advocates have long known: Video games can be excellent teaching tools and an effective way for students to learn.
