How to Engage the Students Who Need It Most: Gamification

How to Engage the Students Who Need It Most: Gamification | useful and interesting sites | Scoop.it
That’s the truth about gamification: it will not make your kids smarter or perform better on tests. Gamification is about increasing motivation and engagement. Once you have a kid’s attention, it is still up to the teacher to deliver a solid, meaningful lesson. Gamification is not a magic bullet, nor does every student need it, but the students who benefit the most from a gamified classroom just so happen to be the ones who most need motivation and engagement.

A brief History of Social Media (1969-2012) [INFOGRAPHIC]

A brief History of Social Media (1969-2012) [INFOGRAPHIC] | useful and interesting sites | Scoop.it

But here’s the thing: the history of social media actually goes back a lot further, and its roots can be found in blogging, Google, AOL, ICQ, the beginnings of the world wide web and, perhaps surprisingly, CompuServe.

I remember geocities and ICQ, and my first blog was a Livejournal. Interesting to see how long some things have really been around for.

8 Technologies That Will Shape Future Classrooms

8 Technologies That Will Shape Future Classrooms | useful and interesting sites | Scoop.it

What does the future of learning hold? What will classrooms of the future be like? Emerging technologies such as cloud computing, augmented reality (AR) and 3D printing are paving the way for the future of education in ways we may have yet to see. At the very least though, we can extrapolate from what these promising technologies and predict how schools will adopt them in time to come.
