Ya pasaron varias clases jugando, pronto tendrán que aplicar en el aula lo que aprendieron acerca de las células. Esta herramienta de aprendizaje que, sin dudas resulta más entretenida y placentera para los adolescentes y logra despertar el interés y la creatividad, para los docentes significa mayor capacitación y la adaptación a otras formas de enseñar la materia que ya no son las tradicionales. Juegos para concientizar sobre el uso del agua, el cuidado del medioambiente, y enseñar contenidos sobre matemática, física o informática, son generalmente de descarga gratuita y un ejemplo de la articulación de las nuevas tecnologías con el aprendizaje en las aulas.

Encender el entusiasmo. De ingenio o creativos. Cambio de paradigma. Encuentro el 6 y 7 de noviembre Kokori, el juego para las clases de biología. Funbrain Jr. What Can Technology Do for Tomorrow’s Children? — Bright. School looks different today than it did even a handful of years ago.

Gravity It’s the frustration of many a designer: You grow up sketching and making with your hands, only to find yourself 20 years later spending the day in front of a glowing screen.

Software That Turns Your Lego Masterpiece Into a Digital Building

The reality is, building in 3-D requires doing a lot of 2-D work first. Much of this is for practicality’s sake; in the early stages of design, it makes little sense to build a physical model when you can so easily revise and redo with the click of a button. But what if you could build your design in real life, then tweak it virtually? That’s the idea behind Lego X, which uses networked plastic bricks to build digital 3-D files. Lego X comes from the same team of designers behind Gravity Sketch, the bonkers Oculus Rift program that lets you draw in 3-D using augmented reality.

In September 2013, I was recruited by then-principal Eric Sheninger to be the new library media specialist of New Milford (New Jersey) High School, and was tasked with seeking to improve student performance by developing an exciting and engaging learning environment for all.

Classroom in the Cloud: Technology as a Learning Environment

My vision was of a learner-centered space where students and teachers would have access to exciting technologies, digital and print resources, and productive spaces offering scope for collaboration and creativity. In seeking to turn what been a largely unvisited and unused library into a vibrant part of the school community, I felt challenged by the limitations of the physical space. The library had not been renovated in decades, and it offered very little in terms of what a modern-day learning "commons" should be. My inspiration at this point was Pixar Animation Studios.

Quest to Learn. Designed from the ground up by a team of teachers and game designers, and firmly grounded in over thirty years of learning research, Quest to Learn re-imagines school as one node in an ecology of learning that extends beyond the four walls of an institution and engages kids in ways that are exciting, empowering and culturally relevant.

Quest to Learn’s unique standards-based integrated curriculum mimics the action and design principles of games by generating a compelling “need to know” in the classroom. Each trimester students encounter a series of increasingly complex, narrative challenges, games or quests, where learning, knowledge sharing, feedback, reflection and next steps emerge as a natural function of play. For instance, in the integrated science and math learning domain, “The Way Things Work,” over the course of one trimester, sixth graders help a shrunken mad scientist, lost inside the human body, navigate the systems he encounters and report back to his research lab. About. Our world is changing so quickly that we can only begin to imagine what the future will hold. But we are failing to teach our kids the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in today’s world.

So how will we prepare them for jobs that haven’t even been invented yet? The real work of a 21st century education is to spark the passion for lifelong learning that our kids will need to navigate their way to a promising tomorrow. The education crisis is a crisis of engagement and it is putting our society’s future at risk. MindShift-GuidetoDigitalGamesandLearning.pdf. Engaging Students with Social Game Mechanics. Meshing GBL With PBL: Can It Work? Project-based learning has essential components that make it unique to other models of instruction, such as public audience, voice and choice, driving questions, and teaching and assessing 21st-century skills. PBL requires that all of these components be present in a truly great "main-course project. " Similarly, game-based learning has elements that make it unique, even in its many implementation methods.

GBL can look like gamification, where game elements such as quests and incentives are used to make the unit of instruction into a game of sorts. MinecraftEdu: From game room to classroom. One night, Diane Main logged on to her class's MinecraftEdu server, and saw one of her students building.
