    It gives you a big opportunity to be in the game when you do sport. You can challenge with yourself by seeing yourself in the real sport field. Also you can improve your performance and learn with enjoyable games.

    How fun it looks! It gives immediate feedback about the time and velocity. It visualizes the invisible; such as a map. Yet, it looks practicing more than teaching a new concept as I understand. Also, the user interacts mainly with physical objects rather than accessing the virtual information. So, can we call it lightly augmented reality?
  •  
    I agree with you Busra, it is very lightly augmented:) We may say that in time you may learn how to run in which distance and which tempo but that is all for now.
  •  
    I agree with büşra, it a kind of visual version of runtastic with that form but it can be developed. For example, think about you run at treadmill (maybe upgraded version for VR) and with the VR glasses you can go to the any environment from the list you can choose. I think, it would be fantastic.

Microsoft HoloLens - 0 views

    Microsoft HoloLens is the first self-contained, holographic computer, enabling you to engage with your digital content and interact with holograms in the world around you. It is a miraculous device, I think. When watched the video, it is einevitable not to be excited. Its sale is only for app developer and it is also expensive, 3000 $. However, as it become widespread and develop, it may be a routine device. Also there is another video video, shot at Case Western Reserve University, shows doctors examining bodies as they float in midair, creating a new way to teach anatomy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKpKlh1-en0 Think about the time when that device become reachable easily, think about using it at the classes commonly. Maybe changing curriculum according to these or another augmented reality ones. I think, there could be revolution at education with these steps in the future. That pictures are taken from the presentation of that device; http://s01.shiftdelete.net/img/general_b/15-10/06/hololens.jpg http://s01.shiftdelete.net/img/content/15-10/06/hololens-2-1444146365.JPG Also, there is a funny(or sad) photoshop work related to possible usage of device at our country; http://s11.postimg.org/cukj78a4z/holoturk.png

Welcome to Flow in Games - 1 views

  •  
    2300 years ago, Aristotle concluded that, more than anything else, men and women seek happiness..." - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (1990) In the last 30 years, as a form of entertainment, video games have evolved from confined arcade activities into a mature media.Video games have deeply infiltrated our daily life and our society. As if toys expanded every child's imagination, modern videogames take advantage of a player's active involvement to open more possibilities than any other existing mediums. [Wright 2006] More and more people grow up playing video games, treating them not only as an art form but also as serious media.

Intrinsic or Extrinsic motivation? - 3 views

  •  
    The article demonstrates that a moderate level of extrinsic motivation is better than a high or low level, while the intrinsic motivation should be as high as possible in order to learn better.

Eight Tips for Fostering Flow in the Classroom - 2 views

  •  
    It's every teacher's dream to have students who engage deeply with their lessons, want to learn for learning's sake, and perform at the top of their potential. In other words, teachers want their kids to find "flow," that feeling of complete immersion in an activity, where we're so engaged that our worries, sense of time, and self-consciousness seem to disappear.
  •  
    I liked this article because it adds more flow elements like making kids laugh, positive realationships, and relevancy of the task and choice

Learning Motivation Animation - 1 views

  •  
    In the video, learning experiences are claimed to be the similar to roller coaster ride. Learners have control over their own learning process. In the very first place, they begin with participating in the learning experience to reach the ultimate goals. Before accomplishing the ultimate ones, they have short term goals as well. Then, their power to learn is directly related to their own motivation to learn. They need initial motivation to go further. But, how much motivation they need to accomplish reaching the ultimate goals is the question to be asked at this point. While learning process, learners use their motivation and at some point, they lose some of their motivation. So, they need to increase the amount of effort put into their learning. As they put more effort into learning, they are more likely to reach the ultimate goals. As they exert enough effort to reach them, they experience satisfaction and they feel that high achieving something by their own motivation and effort. Then, the results can be satisfactory and increase their motivation to learn again. After they accomplish one of the sub-goals, they can use their experiences and awareness to prepare themselves to reach the next one. For the next one, they need more motivation and effort to learn, and they repeat the learning motivation cycle as described in the video with roller coaster ride.

    I loved this video. I remembered my first year of master as I was watching the first loop of roller coaster. I felt that last semester was the most challenging period of my life. I had too much to do. Even I felt like I would fail sometime, I never gave up and at the end of the semester I was very proud of me. Now I say if I overcame last semester's challenge, I can overcome everything. That first loop is really important to carry you to the future goals. Thanks a lot for sharing the video :))
  •  
    This video is a good example of the importance of having learning goals to be motivated as you also emphasized in the forum. I also liked the phrase "Your future self depends on your present self"

    This video is about extrinsic and intrinsic motivation. I can advise you to watch it, because it makes what he says clear with drawings. Also he is talking about a research which has surprising results.

    Autonomy and performing purposeful, sophisticated jobs is more important to people than earning a lot of money. Good research results.

BGuILE - 1 views

  •  
    When I was reading Blumenfeld and Rogat's article, the part about authenticity, I encountered the term "BGuILE" and checked it out. If you are interested in, it is a tool and it is not active now, last update is 2002. It says BGuILE, learning environments bring scientific inquiry into middle school science and high school biology classrooms. The environments consist of computer-based scenarios and associated classroom activities in which students conduct authentic scientific investigations.

Making a mistake can be rewarding, study finds: MRI study shows failure is a rewarding ... - 1 views

  •  
    The human brain learns two ways - either through avoidance learning, which trains the brain to avoid committing a mistake, or through reward-based learning, a reinforcing process that occurs when someone gets the right answer. Scientists have found that making a mistake can feel rewarding, though, if the brain is given the opportunity to learn from its mistakes and assess its options.
  •  
    "Scientists have long understood that the brain has two ways of learning. One is avoidance learning, which is a punishing, negative experience that trains the brain to avoid repeating mistakes. The other is reward-based learning, a positive, reinforcing experience in which the brain feels rewarded for reaching the right answer." The "avoidance learning" is which I have learned from my father thanks to his raising children technique. He always wanted that we, as his children, should be faultless. And that understanding (of course he is not a pedagog :)) affected me negatively in my subsequent years. In fact, the second one, reward-based learning, is essential if someone wants to apply discussion and peer learning in his/her classroom as students who avoid making mistakes will avoid having communication with others, generating assertive questions, defend his/her arguments, asking help even if s/he struck at a ridiculous point, etc. Making mistakes is a part of learning. We need to emphasize this in our classrooms.

Many teenagers 'unhappy by the time they leave school' - BBC News - 1 views

  •  
    Many UK children have become less confident about succeeding in life by the time they leave school, a report says. The study by think-tank Demos says some pupils feel school is just preparing them for exam success. It urges the government to help schools and colleges explore how self-belief, perseverance and resilience can be instilled in pupils.

    Hi Elanur Hoca, thank you for sharing this news with us. I agree to many things written in this news. 1. I agree that students are unhappy in school. Anybody who have teaching experience must have seen that when the last bell rings and the classes end, the students begin running to escape from school. The body never lies. 2. I agree that "non-academic factors" such as resilience, grit and empathy can have a profound impact on young people" and their ability to succeed. 3. I also agree that person's wellbeing, and overall life outcomes and success in life is affected by much more than academic grades. They are affected by their character attributes, and their social and emotional skills.

    I think that not only UK chidren but also our children less confident and unhappy in real life. If same research is done in Turkey, I think that similar results can be obtained. Students spend 12 years in school (primary school, secondary and high school). And they learn socialising, success, failure in school. In traditional classrooms, success is gaining high score in exam, ranked in first three in competition and failure is gaining lower scores on exam. When students leave the school, they face with new environment that is not similar to school. I think, therefore, they can not adopt to this new environment they feel unhappy and less confident. For this reason, schools should bring the skills and qualities that are needed for out of the school. Community service course, role playing, field works should be done in the schools to introduce real life experinces to students. In addition, changing the laerning activites, assesment procedures in school also can be helpful for real life experinces.

    In several videos it was said that we start to prepare our pupils for jobs that are not invented yet. It is because there are lots of information production and exchange throughout world now, which makes lots of jobs become obsolete in short period of times. Our students need to have skills to locate, synthesis, and evaluate information and adapt theirselves to new contexts instead of having static knowledge about specific jobs.
