Blended learning: maak je eigen didactisch model | WilfredRubens.com over leren en ICT | i-minor | Scoop.it
Vanmiddag heb ik tijdens de Middag van de Digitale Didactiek van ROC Midden-Nederland een keynote verzorgd over ‘blended learning’. Ik heb er voor gepleit dat je als docententeam je eigen didactisch model moet construeren, om betekenis te geven aan dit op zich betekenisloze begrip.

As instructional designers we are also interaction designers.

Amos J Cruz's curator insight, March 16, 2015 1:12 AM

Interaction design and its overlap with UX design add another necessary dimension to instructional design, especially given the limitless nature of content delivery afforded by media and applications platform interfaces.

Does Game-Based Learning Work? Results from Three Recent Studies

Roelien Wierda's insight:

convincing data showing dat game based learning leads/may lead to better test results....interesting to see that it doesn't work for 40 and older.....so apparently this is about deploying an acquired skill in the learning process. If that extra skill i.e. gaming has not been acquired somewhere along the line the gaming will not contribute or may even be an obstacle.

Can Video Games Make You Smarter?

New gaming technology is an increasingly important learning tool for kids and adults, which might answer a big question: Can video games make you smarter?

Roelien Wierda's insight:

Basically being a gamer gives you a bigger brain  - I call it adaptive thinking, a.k.a. threat reduction thinking.  Excerpted from the article:  -  “The way we look at information in society is changing,” explained Ross Flatt, assistant principal and founding teacher at Quest to Learn, an Institute project in New York public schools.  “It is really more about how we work with it. It’s less about what we know and more how we can use it.”  These abilities call for deeper learning skills, Gehorsam said, like systems thinking, collaboration and higher-order life skills. “And that was something game-like learning could foster.”    More traditional learning structures that focus on the acquisition of basic skills and content knowledge don’t always teach those capabilities. “[It’s] not like you can take an SAT for these competencies,” Gehorsam said, “but employers want them.”

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, September 11, 2013 12:32 PM

"Systems theory, communications theory, cybernetics, artificial intelligence, computer science – these fields, many of them emerging well before electronic computers, helped create the “information revolution.”

The abstraction of information has made possible massively complex bureaucracies and technologies, from telegraph and telephone networks to NASDAQ and Facebook."
