Is Digital Game-Based Learning The Future Of Learning? - eLearning Industry What Is Game-Based Learning? Most people need effective and interactive experiences that motivate them to actively participate in the learning process. One of the ways to do this is through game-based learning. Game-based learning today involves the use of computer and video games specifically aimed to produce learning outcomes. It is designed to balance subject matter and gameplay, and later assesses the ability of the learner to retain and apply the acquired knowledge to real-world scenarios. An effective game-based learning environment helps learners work toward a goal while choosing actions, and experience the consequences of those actions.

The Great Breast of Knowledge by Phil Kesten Okay, and now you get the WHOLE STORY about the Great Breast of Knowledge. For a photo, see the February, 1980 issue of Playboy... 7 TED Talks on the wonder of 3D printing From ordering movie tickets to booking a dentist appointment, mobile and web apps have made the tasks of daily life easier. But there are some things that an app can’t do. Standing in line at the pharmacy is one of them. The Teacher's Guide To Badges In Education What encourages students to do well in school? Often, it comes down to grades. Many students will work harder in order to earn a higher grade. Colleges want to see good grades.
Edmersiv I gave this a recommend because I like what the creators are doing, but I do not agree with their method of delivery. It's okay. It's a good app to tour and thats the end of it. Kind of like visiting a museum, only more boring than a real museum. I also found a few bugs and kinks that really made it kind of frustrating. Vancouver Body Art & Modification Neodymium (Rare-Earth) Magnets implanted subdermally for the purpose of "Magnetic Vision" and/or "PK Magic Tricks". This creates a new sense within the body; the ability to sense and feel magnetic fields as well as the ability to lift/repel objects by sheer magnetic force. To utilize the full sensation value of the magnet, they are best implanted in nerve-dense areas such as fingertips. They can be used for sexual stimulation in various genital locations also. When referring to "Magnetic Vision", the magnet works by moving very slightly, or with a noticeable oscillation, in response to EM (electro magnetic) fields.
3D Printed Wireless Tank In this Instructable I will show you how to make a wireless tank that you will be able to play with someone else or just use it a base to create bigger and better tank. This tank uses Bluetooth modules connected to Tera Term to send commands to the Arduino. I used IR Leds that are used in Lazer tag guns (links in the next step) so you can battle with your friends or just use it to explore the world a couple inches off the ground from your computer. Uses an IPhone's camera with the Skype app to connect to a PC so it can be viewed and controlled remotely. The range of the Bluetooth module actually was able to go out side my house and go out of the range of my WiFi before disconnecting so range is only an issue if you want to be more than 60-70ish feet from the robot.

The Lab The Lab is a selection of mini games and experiences created by Valve that serve as a tour de force of the HTC Vive’s capabilities in room-scale virtual reality. You start off with ‘Postcards’ which is a simple 360 degree panoramic view program that allows you to visit virtual representations of real life locations. It’s not terribly exciting and I would rope it in with the human body and solar system experiences under “things that get boring after 1 minute”. For me, the real fun came from the interactive games: Slingshot, Longbow, and Xortex. Slingshot is basically a first person Angry Birds clone complete with gibbering cores such as those found in the Portal series. You simply grab hold of one of the spheres with your vive controller, pull back, aim, and release to “calibrate” (launch) your helpless volunteers at towers of boxes and explosive materials.

The dark side of 3D printing: 10 things to watch The 3D printer is a double-edged sword. It stands to transform technology and society for the better, but we also can't ignore the potential negative consequences. As with any new technology, it's easy to get swept up in the benefits of 3D printing. It opens up a world of new possibilities for all industries, and stands to lessen transportation costs, environmental impacts, waste, and reliance on corporations by enabling the maker movement. But 3D printers are still potentially hazardous, wasteful machines, and their societal, political, economic, and environmental impacts have not yet been studied extensively.
The Night Cafe: A VR Tribute to Vincent Van Gogh Played on DK2 (Runtime 1.3)Nice little Gem,I totally recommend this to every VR User. A new and innovative Way to bring classic Artworks closer to a broader public Audience.
