A change is as good as a holiday. Enabling students to move in a designated space is a small way of passing the redponsibility of their learning onto them. It works in my school.

This article shares some of the ways that gamification methods help engage your online students more effectively and how these can help create a better online community.

Alfonso Gonzalez's curator insight, August 6, 2015 4:23 PM

#Gamification taps into something that’s so innately human, it makes sense that other aspects of our lives will start to get the gamification treatment – do you agree?

Jane McGonigal thinks that not enough hours are spent gaming. In her TED Talk, “Gaming Can Make a Better World”, she highlights how most of the public agrees: 63% of American adults said that making everyday activities more like a game would make them more fun and rewarding.

Gamification is no longer a novelty: it’s expected by modern employees and community members.

Part of the success for building and engaging the Experts Exchange community was:

1) User-Generated Ratings

2) Points, Rewards & Leaderboards

3) Strategy

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | Will technology replace the teacher? | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.

These thinking routines can help teachers move toward teaching processes for learning rather than content alone.  In the era of ever increasing knowledge, we need to help students learn how to learn.

 

That being said, these routines can also be used as a model for teachers by using them as options for professional development,
