With $2M From Zynga Co-founder & More, Sokikom Wants To Use Social, MMO Gaming To Help Kids Learn Math Sokikom, a new startup that wants to help K-12 teachers motivate students to learn using games, is announcing today that it has raised $2 million in seed funding, half of which comes in the form of a grant from the Institute of Education Sciences (a research branch within the U.S. Department of Education) and the other half comes in the form of angel funding from former Intel Chairman and CEO Dr. Craig Barrett and Zynga co-founder Steve Schoettler, among others. Up until now, the startup has flown under the radar, spending part of that time in beta, and its products have been in the hands of teachers for almost a year now, testing and iterating. But Sokikom is now ready to “officially” pull back the curtain on its online learning tool, which uses game mechanics to help teachers motivate their youngest students to improve their math skills and performance within the Common Core.

In 1945, Bruner returned to Harvard as a psychology professor and was heavily involved in research relating to cognitive psychology and educational psychology.
When Education Teaches: 60 cents - Edwords Blog - BAM! Radio Network 2015 still isn't over. Those were the words running through my mind as I boarded the 1 Train and headed downtown at 7:15 this morning. The train was not very crowded and everyone seated around me looked as I felt – tired, wanting to be anywhere else, and waiting for this year to end. At 18th Street, I spotted an older woman boarding the train. As we pulled out of the station, she began reciting the rehearsed words that subway panhandlers often use. She was sorry to bother everyone, just lost her job, was living in a shelter, just needed some help to get through the day, etc., etc.
Too Many Kids Quit Science Because They Don't Think They're Smart But praising their intelligence can make them feel even more insecure. A self-esteem expert offers a way out of the conundrum. Nyro/Shutterstock For most students, science, math, engineering, and technology (STEM) subjects are not intuitive or easy. Learning in general—and STEM in particular—requires repeated trial and error, and a student’s lack of confidence can sometimes stand in her own way.

The Mindset List Welcome to the Beloit College Mindset List for this year’s entering college class of 2018 The College class of 2018, starting their first year on campus this fall, arrives with a grasp of their surroundings quite distinct from that of their mentors. Born in 1996, they have always had The Daily Show to set them straight, always been able to secure immediate approval and endorsement for their ideas through “likes” on their Facebook page, and have rarely heard the term “bi-partisan agreement.”
Conditions of Learning - Gagne This theory stipulates that there are several different types or levels of learning. The significance of these classifications is that each different type requires different types of instruction. Gagne identifies five major categories of learning: verbal information, intellectual skills, cognitive strategies, motor skills and attitudes. Different internal and external conditions are necessary for each type of learning. For example, for cognitive strategies to be learned, there must be a chance to practice developing new solutions to problems; to learn attitudes, the learner must be exposed to a credible role model or persuasive arguments. Gagne suggests that learning tasks for intellectual skills can be organized in a hierarchy according to complexity: stimulus recognition, response generation, procedure following, use of terminology, discriminations, concept formation, rule application, and problem solving.
