The Pedagogies in Game Based Learning: A Case Study of Teacher Attitudes & Perceptions

The Pedagogies in Game Based Learning: A Case Study of Teacher Attitudes & Perceptions | Pedagogy of Digital Games | Scoop.it

The serious game was designed using a role-playing strategy to allow the user to become embodied in a virtual environment and identify with objects and characters. The player assumes the role of a new teacher on the first day of school and the principal “Principal Daily” assigns “Mr. Rooney” (the player) tasks and challenges that he must complete before the day is over. At the end of each level, the player is given information on the pedagogy embedded in the game level and when all tasks are finished, “Principal Daily” requests a short reflective report on the player’s experience.

 

Note: This falls in line with work I've been doing for nearly 10 years :)  -KB

Evolution of educational technology (infographic)

Evolution of educational technology (infographic) | Pedagogy of Digital Games | Scoop.it
Education is no longer about pencils and schoolbooks but iPads and internet connections, a new infographic charting the evolution of the use of technology in education shows.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Katrin Becker's insight:

A very US centric view.

It is focused almost entirely on devices rather than their uses. That's part of the whole problem with Ed Tech - people are too impressed with the Technology and not focused enough on the Educational part.

 

Getting piles of iPads in NYC schools is all well and good, but I want to know what they are being used for? In what ways is education being improved as a result?

Daniel Tan's curator insight, March 10, 2013 11:54 PM

As was rightly commented in the post, while the educational technology has changed and evolved, the practice thereof has not, at least progressed likewise, That should now be the focus - the learning design and gteaching practice, rather than solely the technology.

How true I have a three year old son who is almost as good on the computer as I am.  He can pick the sites he wants from a picture and use the mouse and the pad on my lap top.  It is amazing.  I'm glad as things change so should the way we educate.

Download the chart here http://eepurl.com/fLJZM ;



It has been 14 months since we initially published the PDI Chart that has been downloaded tens of thousands of times around the world. We heard from educators from all corners of the planet including Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, England, France, Ukraine, China, India, Canada and the United States where they shared how they are using this chart. We learned that this chart has been helpful in having educators and parents gain an understanding of these differences. We appreciate the stories and the thoughtful feedback that we received.

From this feedback, we realized it was time for the chart to be revised and to get a facelift. The input we received helped us clarify the differences of these three terms....

Gagné’s Nine Events of Instruction applied to Game Based Learning

Gagné’s Nine Events of Instruction applied to Game Based Learning | Pedagogy of Digital Games | Scoop.it

Following on from a recent post The Pedagogies in Game Based Learning, this article will look at how Gagné’s Nine Events of Instruction can be applied to game based learning.

 

(1) & (2) Gaining attention and Informing learners of the objective
At the start of a game, users are always informed of their learning objectives, tasks and instructions on how to play the game. Some games will have an animated sequence as an introduction to grab the users attention (Stimulus to engage).

 

KB: This was interesting to come across as it fits in line with work I've been doing for nearly 10 years :) -KB

What Teachers Really Think About Game Based Learning

What Teachers Really Think About Game Based Learning | Pedagogy of Digital Games | Scoop.it

WeAreTeachers, an educational resource website, have released the results of a survey of 309 K–12 classroom teachers from public, private and religious schools across the country about their views on game based learning. We thought the results were very interesting, especially the statement ’81% of teachers feel students are more engaged when they are playing games’.
