Games for Learning: Why Games Are Effective Educational Tools

Games for Learning: Why Games Are Effective Educational Tools | why not try in the library? | 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.

A Media Specialist's Guide to the Internet: Oh, How Young Kids Love Dinosaurs! Here Are 33 Web Pages About Dinosaurs

A Media Specialist's Guide to the Internet: Oh, How Young Kids Love Dinosaurs! Here Are 33 Web Pages About Dinosaurs | why not try in the library? | Scoop.it

When I worked as a media specialist in an elementary school, the most popular section was 567.9, the Dewey number for dinosaurs. Most of the time it was a boy who checked out the dinosaur book, although now and again a girl asked for one. I even had a kindergartener who only wanted books on dinosaurs. Week after week he took another book from the section until there were no more left for him to choose. Today, dinosaurs are still very popular in the elementary or middle school library. Here are some resources to get you started...

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | why not try in the library? | Scoop.it

What has to happen for school libraries to become relevant? If we want to connect with the latest generation of learners and teachers, we have to totally redesign the library from the vantage point of our users—our thinking has to do a 180-degree flip. In short, it’s time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, David Loertscher, collaborated with two colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea called the school library learning commons.

My county is still using laptops more, but is trying to get several sets of 7 ipads into each school. A teacher can check them out and have a small group do something with them.
