Five Psychological Principles Fueling Gamification : Learning Solutions Magazine - 0 views

  • narratives developed around a learning activity make the activity more engaging and relevant to the learner
    • dsatkins1981
      How could we build content and narrative into an Escape Room to enhance the already value elements such as problems-solving and creative thinking?
  • leveling up should become more difficult as users progress through the material.
    • dsatkins1981
      Designers at Nintendo often say: the best games are simple to play, but difficult to master (i.e. Mario).
  • the brain can only handle a finite amount of information at one time before becoming overloaded.

  • Better learning happens when this occurs.
  • Gamification has been shown to relieve stress and clear the brain of distractions.
  • “If you play Angry Birds or some other game on your mobile or laptop, you are not thinking about what you are making tonight for dinner. You are thinking about what is going on in the game,” she says.
  • incorporate learning in that experience, it causes a hyper focus on the key learning point.”
    • dsatkins1981
      Some in the field of brain science are finding that multitasking is actually detrimental to task-quality. In other words, each additional task you undertake decreases the quality of your focus on all tasks exponentially and therefore decreases each resultant product. Hyperfocus for limited periods may be much more inline with the way the brain wants to work.
  • on a psychological level, losses can be twice as powerful as gains
  • Individuals will keep playing
  • relieves cognitive overload
  • forges an emotional connection
  • individuals would rather avoid losses than acquire equivalent gains.
  • an individual would prefer to not lose $5, as opposed to finding $5.
  • Users who earn or receive awards as a result of gamification do not want to lose them and, thus, will continue playing in order to retain them.
    • dsatkins1981
      Like sonic the hedgehog losing rings? I like it. On the other hand, what about the evil of our day: microtransactions? Where does that come into play and what are the risks of abuse by designers of gamification in education?

Views: Lessons of a Summer Teaching Online - Inside Higher Ed - 0 views

  • As I faithfully attended the monthly training meetings for Just in Time Technology (ex: how to use Skype) and for Course Design (ex: what is the conversion of 14 weeks pacing into a 30 day class), it began to dawn on me that I had underestimated the time and preparation required for my online course.
  • Reducing the amount of content does not mean reducing rigor for students or work for me. Like many others who have never taught online, I had entered this experience thinking that online courses were a little bit “fluffy.” I have a newfound respect for my fellow online professors.
  • Although I am a relative novice in the teaching arena, I appreciated the chance to revive my teaching mojo. I was forced to be creative about how to present course material and ensure that my students had a solid understanding of the information. I also realized I needed to revise my opinion of online teaching and those who participate in it. I now know that online courses are not a pale and lifeless version of traditional courses or worse, a “pay for an A” scam in which everyone teaches him/herself and everyone gets a good grade. Online courses can be distinctive and worthwhile ways of teaching in their own right. Amy Overman is assistant professor of psychology at Elon University.
    Reviewed by Nancy Chapko: n her article, Lessons of a Summer Teaching Online, Dr. Amy Overman describes how she revived her "teaching mojo" as a novice online instructor. An assistant professor of psychology at Elon University in North Carolina, Dr. Overman describes her personal experience as a first-time online instructor. Written for instructors who may have doubts about online teaching and learning as she did, her account is both thoughtful and humorous. Dr. Overman describes her decision to teach an online class and her preparation for the experience. She relates her somewhat unexpected positive experience facilitating the class. She offers comparisons between her face-to-face and online teaching experiences and draws some insightful conclusions. Among them is the realization that reducing the amount of content does not reduce the rigor of the course and online classes take a lot of time, but they're worth it. Whether you're a committed veteran of online teaching, or you are at the initial stage of considering its merits, you will find Dr. Overman's article perceptive and thought-provoking. As she states, "… online courses are not a pale and lifeless version of traditional courses."

    • sania malik
      Iman Al-Obeidi who is a Libyan Postgraduate Law student She first received worldwide media attention during the 2011 Civil Libya War when she was beaten and ganged raped by the 15 men of Libyan troops. she really flashed the sex crime in Libya by the Gaddafi force. Dr. Seham Sergewa had been working with children traumatized by the fighting in Libya but soon found herself being approached by troubled mothers who felt they could trust her with their dark secret.At first, the responses to the questionnaire about the trauma of the war in Libya were predictable, if tragic: 10,000 people suffering post-traumatic stress, 4,000 children with psychological problems. Then came the unexpected: 259 women said they had been raped by militiamen loyal to Muammar Qaddafi. Iman Al-Obeidi and the other women said they had been raped by Qaddafi's militias in numerous cities and towns: Benghazi, Tobruk, Brega, Bayda and Ajdabiya (where the initial three mothers hail from) and Saloum in the east; and Misrata in the west.ome just said they had been raped. Some did not sign their names; some just used their initials. But some felt compelled to share the horrific details of their ordeals on the back of the questionnaire.

Getting It Wrong: Surprising Tips on How to Learn: Scientific American - 37 views

  • research by Nate Kornell, Matthew Hays and Robert Bjork at U.C.L.A. that recently appeared in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory and Cognition reveals that this worry is misplaced. In fact, they found, learning becomes better if conditions are arranged so that students make errors.
  • People remember things better, longer, if they are given very challenging tests on the material, tests at which they are bound to fail. In a series of experiments, they showed that if students make an unsuccessful attempt to retrieve information before receiving an answer, they remember the information better than in a control condition in which they simply study the information. Trying and failing to retrieve the answer is actually helpful to learning. It’s an idea that has obvious applications for education, but could be useful for anyone who is trying to learn new material of any kind.

The book showcases insights into the learning process and explores its implications for educational theory and practice. With an introduction and chapter by David A. Sousa, one of the primary researchers in the field, and chapters by 16 leading experts, Mind, Brain, & Education provides a comprehensive overview of the history and current research being conducted in this emerging field.The researchers who contribute to the volume use the growing knowledge of how the brain functions and develops to explore the field's implications for pedagogy and the classroom. "It's an excellent, timely, informative book on the history and current status of the field that has come to be known as educational neuroscience," said Robert Sylwester, emeritus professor of education at the University of Oregon. "The 10 chapters that constitute the heart of the book were written by a wonderful mix of outstanding researchers and educators, from Michael I. Posner, a renowned pioneer in the use of neuroimaging technology in psychology/education and the recipient of the 2009 National Medal of Science, to Judy Willis, who left a career as a neurologist to become an elementary/middle school teacher." Mind, Brain, & Education is the sixth book in the Leading Edge™ series. The Leading Edge™ series unites education authorities from around the globe and asks them to confront the important issues that affect teachers and administrators-the issues that profoundly impact student success

Deseret News | Universities will be 'irrelevant' by 2020, Y. professor says - 0 views

    Wiley is one part Nostradamus and nine parts revolutionary, an educational evangelist who preaches about a world where students listen to lectures on iPods, and those lectures are also available online to everyone anywhere for free. Course materials are shared between universities, science labs are virtual, and digital textbooks are free. Institutions that don't adapt, he says, risk losing students to institutions that do. The warning applies to community colleges and ivy-covered universities, says Wiley, who is a professor of psychology and instructional technology at Brigham Young University. America's colleges and universities, says Wiley, have been acting as if what they offer - access to educational materials, a venue for socializing, the awarding of a credential - can't be obtained anywhere else. By and large, campus-based universities haven't been innovative, he says, because they've been a monopoly.
