Comment classer le jeu sérieux Classer rassure l'humain. Il lui permet de mettre dans des cases les éléments qui l'entourent. En matière de produits culturels, que ce soit cinéma, littérature ou jeu vidéo, il se sent mieux quand il peut leur attribuer des genres. Ainsi, que ce soit en ligne ou en magasin, ceux-ci proposent systématiquement des taxonomies en fonction du type. Le jeu sérieux, produit culturel et pédagogique, n'échappe pas aux besoins de la classification. Prenons, par exemple, les jeux vidéo de survie (les survivals) dont nous vous parlions il y a peu de temps. Tout sur la mécanique de jeu et l'intention Bref, si le jeu vidéo mute et transforme sans cesse sa classification, comment arriverons-nous à classifier les serious games qui sont aussi en évolution au fil du temps? Sur le site, ils analysent les titres de serious games, selon des briques de gameplay, c'est-à-dire des règles qui mènent à la victoire ou à la défaite du joueur. Une échelle qualitative?

Woman Who Fell in Fountain in YouTube Video May Sue Remember how we all laughed last Friday at the cautionary tale that was "Girl falls into fountain while texting at the Berkshire Mall"? Well, the folks at the mall where the incident occurred probably aren't laughing now, as Cathy Cruz Marrero (the fountain woman) is considering suing them. The video in question — in case you haven't seen it — is pretty self-explanatory. It features a mall security video with audio of mall employees laughing at Marrero as she texts while walking, subsequently falling into a fountain. Now, Marrero is making the news circuit rounds with a lawyer in tow, stating that she might be suing the mall. "My issue is I don't think security was professional because they didn't send anyone to check on me until 20 minutes later and I had already left," Marrero told Reading Eagle.

Comment et pourquoi utiliser les réseaux sociaux en formation Quels sont les usages que les enseignants et les formateurs peuvent faire des médias et réseaux sociaux ? A quoi peuvent-ils bien servir en classe ? Voici quelques idées d’utilisation et quelques réflexions qu’elles m’inspirent. J’ai tenté de formaliser ces usages pédagogiques en réfléchissant sur ma propre expérience de formateur en la matière. J’en ai dégagé une série d’usages des réseaux sociaux qui s’appliquent à la classe ou à la salle de formation. Les usages cités ici le sont à titre d’exemple et ne prétendent pas à l’exhaustivité : ils veulent simplement rendre compte du potentiel éducatif et formateur des réseaux sociaux si on les exploite avec un peu d’imagination et d’ouverture d’esprit.

SlideDeck | Free Slideshow Software Download, Slider jQuery SlideShow WordPress Plugin Woman Sells First Spot in iPad 2 Line For $900 College student Amanda Foote has turned the die-hard techie tradition of waiting hours, sometimes days, to be the first to purchase a new Apple product into a lucrative odd job. After nearly 41 hours of waiting in line for the iPad 2 release at Apple's flagship store in New York, she sold her number one spot for $900. Foote sat through an entire day of rain, had a stranger help himself to a box of doughnuts she was eating, and slept a total of 3 hours and 10 minutes in the time between when she got in line at 5 p.m. The buyer, app developer Hazem Sayed, says he is planning on leaving for a business trip Friday evening and wants to have an iPad 2 (which starts at $499) with him. He's not alone in paying for the cachet of being among the first to purchase apple products. In June, before the iPhone 4 launch, spots in line to buy the new phone were reportedly going for as much as $1,200. "We like the competition, the atmosphere, meeting people," Cruz says.
