Simcoach Games creates training games that can lead to new careers

Simcoach Games creates training games that can lead to new careers | IT and learning | Scoop.it
Simcoach’s games such as Booeys teach players how to get into a tech career or show them how to do construction jobs. Sometimes, players conclude that’s not what they want to do. And to Trybus, that’s a good thing, as it prequalifies people to be job candidates at the companies which sponsor the games.

The simple mobile games have paid the bills, and Simcoach Games employs 20 people. And it gives new meaning to the once-fashionable word, “gamification,” or using game mechanics in non-game applications to engage people through fun. I interviewed Trybus and Myers about these subjects.

50 Reasons Why Free Play Is Important for Your Students - Educators Technology

50 Reasons Why Free Play Is Important for Your Students - Educators Technology | IT and learning | Scoop.it
Purposeful play is an essential component in children’s cognitive, emotional, physical, and social development. Through play kids get to discover and explore the world around them. As Maslow stated ’almost all creativity involves   purposeful play’. Several studies, see visual below, confirmed the importance of play and recess in building healthy environments that are conducive to optimal learning experiences for kids. Some of the advantages of free play for kids, students, and even adults include: it boost one’s moral and energizes their sense of optimism; develops kids communicative, social and cultural competences; enables children to practice learning by doing;  provides kids with an outlet to express their emotions and build social relationships; play develops kids self-esteem and confidence; it is also ‘an opportunity for kids to really see the best in themselves’.The visual below from Playground Equipment, features 50 reasons why play is important in kids social and scholarly life. Check it out and share with us your feedback in our Facebook page.

Personal Computing Is Dead, Long Live Collaborative Computing | IT and learning | Scoop.it

"Those of us who are actively developing for the HoloLens, and for the other augmented and mixed reality devices and platforms that currently exist, are constantly looking for the next bit of news or press conference about the space. Our one hope is to find any information about the road ahead, to know that the hours we spend slaving away above our keyboards, with the weight of a head-mounted display on our neck, will lead to something as amazing as we picture it. All the analysis tends to lead down roads that say 5 to 10 years."

One vision of the future. :)

Bryce Cooper's curator insight, May 30, 2017 5:29 AM
I think that the hololens is a fantastic resource, and I hope that it gains more traction sooner rather than later. The capabilities that mixed reality could present to my own teaching in the area of history are quite profound. Students could physically experience historical events, see through the eyes of someone who was there standing on the ground when ANZAC soldiers landed at Gallipoli, or when the Treaty of Versailles was signed. Students could interact with the augmented reality and use it to create great collaborative projects. They could use it to predict outcomes of battles, from being able to physically see the circustances such as terrain and armed strength.

This resource supports the SAMR framework well, in regards to the higher order thinking aspects of Redefinition. Students can immerse themselves in a situation in VR that replaces the physical pictures, text and videos entirely, and creates a new dimension to engagement with a topic. Whilke a documentary full of firsthand footage can be insightful for a relatively recent era, VR recreations of ancient historical aspects could be invaluable for student engagement and learning. 

VR has the capability to essentially redefine the way in which students learn and engage with history, and can present all new opportunities for teachers to plan and implement interesting and engaging assessment and activities.

Read through this and we are ticking all of these boxes at Pulteney.
