[FR] ''Serious Gaming'' : Que faut-il penser de l'appel à projets de NKM ? - techtoc.tv, web-tv Article rédigé par Stéphane Rossard Le serious gaming ? C'est l'actualité brûlante du moment avec l'appel à projets dédiés au serious gaming et au Web 2.0 lancé, le 6 mai dernier, par Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, secrétaire d’Etat chargée de la Prospective et du développement de l’économie numérique. Dotés respectivement de 10 et de 20 millions d’euros, les appels à projets Web 2.0 et serious gaming concentreront les investissements dans la R&D et l’innovation. La date limite de dépôt des candidatures est fixée au 6 juillet 2009. Rapidement, sur ce plateau, cet appel préempte les discussions des intervenants. A ne pas manquer, l'échange à bâtons rompus entre Gilbert Reveillon et Fabrice en total désaccord sur ce projet de la ministre. Particulièrement intéressant le retour d'expérience de Marie-Pierre Fleury porteuse d'un projet non éligible alors qu'il s'inscrit dans cette logique. Les stratégies numériques des autorités publiques sont-elles pertinentes ?

Advanced Searching Tips The Participatory Museum Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Badging in the Classroom--Our Definitive Guide -- THE Journal Career/College Readiness | May 2013 Digital Edition Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Badging in the Classroom--Our Definitive Guide With new programs and standards emerging, digital badges are helping students prove what they've learned in--and outside--school.

Why are all these organizations using their considerable weight to promote the development of digital badges? That idea seems central to the support digital badges are receiving from the Obama administration.

[FR] Les transports de Londres se transforment en gigantesque terrain de jeu Et si les réseaux de transports en commun devenaient le théâtre de gigantesques jeux collectifs ? S’inspirant du principe de la Fun Theory, qui voudrait que les comportements éco-responsables soient encouragés par des infrastructures attrayantes pour le consommateur, Chromaroma propose aux utilisateurs du métro londonien une véritable guerre de territoire éco-citoyenne. Chromaroma est un jeu auquel chacun peut participer, en équipe ou individuellement. Une seule condition : posséder une Oyster Card, équivalent londonien du passe Navigo francilien, qui est l’outil principal du jeu. « Le seul prix à payer pour une personne qui veut jouer est donc celui de son abonnement aux transports », déclare Richard Birkin, ingénieur en charge du projet chez Mudlark. Aujourd’hui, plus de 10 000 inscrits s’affrontent. Un modèle français à venir ? Crédits photos : Mudlark

Great Minds Share Alike The idea for MentorMob sprouts from the backgrounds of Kris Chinosorn and Vince Leung. Both avid learners, they found early on that the Internet was not quite the incredible tool for learning new skills and hobbies that everyone thinks it is. Even with millions of free lessons online, the content is almost impossible to navigate. "You don’t really know where to start, what to learn next or who you can trust, which is why in a sea of free content, people are still paying for online lessons." - Vince Leung, CTO Both Kris and Vince knew there had to be a better, more efficient way to learn for free online and that is when MentorMob was born. Since MentorMob’s inception, the company has seen many changes, and pivoted from it’s original website (now residing as LessonPaths.com) to create a community focused social learning platform that features one in-depth learning experience that works.
