ESL Warm-up Games and Activities Divide the students into 2 teams. Have 2 desks at the front of the class, facing each other, with an eraser in the middle of the 2 desks. One student from each team comes and sits in the hot seat. This week in class, we're studying "When I _________, I ______/ I __________when I ________. So, I would say something like, "When I feel happy, I _________." And of course, to make it even more exciting or if one team is behind by a lot of points, have a "Bonus Round," where the teams pick their best 3 players and each question is worth 2 or 3 points, or something like that. Brain Points: A Growth Mindset Reward Structure Boosts Player Persistence! | ... Brain Points: A Growth Mindset Reward Structure Boosts Player Persistence in Refraction By: Eleanor O’Rourke Psychologist Carol Dweck has made an interesting discovery. She and her colleagues have found that children’s beliefs about their intelligence can have a strong effect on their motivation and academic achievement [2]. Studies show that children typically hold one of two mindsets: they either believe that their intelligence is an unchangeable attribute (fixed mindset) or they believe that their intelligence can be increased through hard work (growth mindset) [1,2,5]. Children who hold a fixed mindset view challenging situations as “tests” of how much intelligence they have, and view effort and mistakes as indications of low ability, while children who hold a growth mindset view effort as a necessary part of the learning process [1,5]. These mindsets affect students academic achievement. This discovery has important implications for educational video games. Direct Messaging

Falling Clouds Falling Clouds In this game you have to move words around to make a sentence. You can practice English grammar by rearranging words to make a complete sentence. The sentences get more complicated as you progess. Hopefully this game is a good way to practice sentence structures and review word order. Edit – In response to numerous comments and emails, the game is now slower giving more time to move the clouds around.

Börja skriva kod med Code Combat När man introducerar programmering i skolan tillsammans med elever är blockprogrammering ett perfekt alternativ. Då använder eleverna färdigprogrammerade block som de sätter ihop i ett specifikt mönster för att få en viss bestämd händelse att ske på datorskärmen. På det sättet får eleverna en uppfattning om hur internet och tex datorspel fungerar och är uppbyggda. Att det inte är något magiskt, att datorn gör precis det man säger till den/programmerar den att göra, inget annat. Och blir det inte som man har tänkt så är det inte datorns fel, utan det är något man sagt åt den på fel sätt att göra, felprogrmmerad. Vi har testar en del olika blockprogrammeringsverktyg som, Scratch, LEGOmindstormEV3, Hopscotch samt andra programmeringsappar ni kan läsa om på tidigare inlägget där elever recenserar programmeringsappar. - att eleverna får en grundförståelse för webb, hur det är uppbyggt och fungerar, att det är påverkningsbart. // Helena

The skills needed in the 21st century - New Vision for Education To thrive in today’s innovation-driven economy, workers need a different mix of skills than in the past. In addition to foundational skills like literacy and numeracy, they need competencies like collaboration, creativity and problem-solving, and character qualities like persistence, curiosity and initiative. Changes in the labour market have heightened the need for all individuals, and not just a few, to have these skills. In countries around the world, economies run on creativity, innovation and collaboration. Skilled jobs are more and more centred on solving unstructured problems and effectively analysing information. In addition, technology is increasingly substituting for manual labour and being infused into most aspects of life and work. To uncover the skills that meet the needs of a 21st-century marketplace, we conducted a meta-analysis of research about 21st-century skills in primary and secondary education.
