SURVIVAL A Simulation Game - 68 views

  •  
    This survival simulation is great fun for middle to high school students. It achieves many of the 21st century skill sets and it gives great insight on how your student population thinks as far as if they are in-the-box or out-of-the-box thinkers.

Podcasting Business Learning: Addressing the New Learning Styles for Generation Y - 1 views

  •  
    by Stevina Evuleocha, Steve Ugbah California State University Abstract The quest for an ideal medium to deliver business content to Gen Y learners has led instructors to consider the Internet, since digital content that exists in databases can be manipulated by a range of programming services (Shim et al., 2006). Shim et al., have also asserted that web development has been hampered by bandwidth and difficulties of "back end integration," consequently, impacting the presentational aspects of data and user interfaces (Yang & Tang, 2005). Innovations in computer and software technologies appear to have ameliorated the technical difficulties, resulting in the emergence of new media such as podcasting, webcasting, videostreaming, blogging, and Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) technologies (Shim, 2002). These new media streams can be integrated into traditional lectures, thus enhancing the educational environment (McLaughlin, 2006), particularly for Gen Y learners. This paper discusses the efficacy of podcasting in business education, reviews the characteristics of Generation Y (Gen Y) learners, discusses learning styles and theories that support mobile learning, reviews learning styles of Gen Y learners, and discusses whether adaptations are necessary to address the updated needs of this new generation of learners in the business communication context.

    I am just starting a blog as part of a reflective practice. I also want to use it to connect with people who are interested in education and interested in smart inclusion of technology into the classroom.

The Partnership for 21st Century Skills - EduVision - 48 views

    I distinctly remember a professor at Trinity College saying, as we studied Faulkner, "determining authors' intent is impossible. In fact, even if you asked them personally, they might lie!
