Quick Guide to Gamification - Online Universities.com - 0 views

  •  
    "This all sounds amazing, but it won't happen until game developers and educators can come together to create educational games that have rich content and the strong engagement that is currently only seen in the best commercial games. The real gamification of education is going to take years of serious effort to make happen, but that doesn't make it any less fun to think about right now. "

    I have just completed this course. It was good for the background knowledge and access to resources, video etc.
    I would use it in conjunction with what I have researched is happening in schools. I feel more confident to apply the principles to my teaching.

Don't Play It, Make It! -- THE Journal - 1 views

  •  
    "Using games as a learning tool is not new--research abounds to demonstrate the use of video games enhancing problem-solving skills and creativity. Pioneer educational games, like Carmen Sandiego and Oregon Trail, have given birth to online, multiuser, digital simulations that would make their forebears blush. Now, in what seems to be a natural evolution, a growing number of schools are taking the concept one step further and asking students to design the games themselves.

    Game creation as a learning tool is really just a digital-age take on the old learning-by-doing approach to teaching: Students pick up concepts easier and retain more information when they are hands on with their subject matter. In game creation, students are presented with the task of building a digital learning activity that focuses on a particular topic, such as ecology, mathematics, or social studies. Using a framework and the fundamentals of game design, they create a game that demonstrates their knowledge of the topic."

Portal 2 will be used to teach in schools - Video Games Reviews, Cheats | Geek.com - 0 views

  •  
    "Video games are increasingly being used to educate children both inside and outside the classroom. Steam thought they'd jump on the bandwagon too, but they haven't created a new game. Oh no, kids will soon be able to play Portal in the classroom.

    Steam have created "Teach with Portals", a website that allows educators to sign up to gain access to an educational version of Portal 2 and the Portal 2 puzzle maker. The software uses realistic physics (just like the other Portal games) and inspires teachers and students to create their own puzzles, explore different worlds, and share custom lesson plans."
