IRIDESCENT: 5 Signals that an "Educational Game" Isn't Really a Game - 0 views

  • How can you spot the fake games masquerading as educational games?
  • 1. When walking through a demo of the game, the game designer stops to say "And this part is where the learning occurs."
  • 2. "And then to add the motivational element, we added a game component to the lesson."
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • 3. Excessive use of the word "fun" in describing why the game works.
  • 4. Extensive in-game tutorials, as videos or text.
  • 5. Multiple choice items in the game that have clear right answers.
    An interesting discussion of game-based learning and the false attempts to 'make games' for education.

Spell Up, A Chrome Experiment, Uses Voice Recognition, Gaming To Improve Your English |... - 4 views

    "Users can start at any level they want and the point is to build "towers" of words (hence the "Up" of "Spell Up"). The browser speaks words to the user, and he or she must spell it back to the voice. There are variations around this, such as word guessing games, unscrambling words, filling in missing letter blanks and pronouncing things correctly (and from where I played the game, "correctly" seemed to be the Queen's English)."

BBC News - Gamification time: What if everything were just a game? - 3 views

    "How Microtask's Digitalkoot game helps weed mistakes out of the Finnish National Library's e-archives One more step, and a tiny creature will cross the bridge and get to safety. Just one more step - but letters do not match, the fragile structure blows up and the brown mole falls into a digital abyss. But as Juha Valtamo, a 21-year-old Finnish student, correctly types the next word that appears on the screen of his laptop, another mole happily reaches the destination. Digitalkoot may sound like a typical online game - but there is more to it than just building bridges and saving moles."

HowStuffWorks "How Gamification Works" - 6 views

    "Gamification" describes turning real-world situations into games. Gamification is a neologism -- a newly invented term that's becoming commonly used. The word gamification was likely born in the realm of casual conversation to convey the idea of turning something into a game. People like entrepreneur and author Gabe Zichermann, though, have given gamification its own unique definition. Zichermann, a respected authority on gamification and its applications, defines the term as "the process of using game thinking and mechanics to engage audiences and solve problems." In short, he describes gamification as "non-fiction gaming."
    In his 2010 book "Game-Based Marketing," co-authored with writer Joselin Linder, Zichermann defines a related term he coined: funware.

    Santos is not an enigma, but he is misunderstood. Santos sends approximately 125 texts per day. He sneaks his phone into his classes either in his book bag or his jacket and is online just about all day. He posts messages to Facebook during class. He looks up answers to definitions of words online. He checks sports scores, plays games, posts his location so his friends can find him easily, and streams music through an app on his phone. His teachers use technology as an event. Outside of school, he doesn't separate technology from other activities. For him, it is air or water, something that he doesn't really think about because it's always available.
