The 23 Best Game-Based Education Resources for 2014 Edudemic has covered game-based learning and gamification in the classroom on numerous occasions in the past. When learning becomes a game, it’s an enjoyable, effective experience for students and teachers alike. We’ve curated 23 of the best game-based education resources for 2014. Understanding Game-Based Education Image via Flickr The concept of game-based education is one that’s easily dismissed as being frivolous or time-wasting. The Institute of Play explains how games nurture the higher-order thinking skills kids will need in their futures, including the ability to analyze and solve problems using media resources. Resources for Getting Started Even if you’re sold on the idea of game-based learning, you might be at a loss on where to begin. According to Smart Data Collective’s October 2014 post, Press Start to Learn: How Gamification is Changing Education, gamification instills a sense of investment and collaboration in students, which in turn improves both behavior and learning.

Myrmes In Myrmes , originally shown under the name ANTerpryse , players control ant colonies and use their ants to explore the land (leaving pheromones in their wake); harvest "crops" like stone, earth and aphids; fight with other ants; complete requests from the Queen; birth new ants; and otherwise dominate their tiny patch of dirt, all in a quest to score points and prove that they belong at the top of the heap, er, anthill. After three seasons of scrabbling and foraging, each ant colony faces a harsh winter that will test its colonial strength. In game terms, each player has an individual game board to track what's going on inside his colony – that is, whether the nurses are tending to larvae or doing other things, where the larvae are in their growth process, what resources the colony has, which actions are available to workers when they leave the colony, and so on. After three seasons, players must pay food to get their colony through winter, losing points if they can't.

Game-Based Learning Units for the Everyday Teacher Game-based learning (GBL) is getting a lot press. It is an innovative practice that is working to engage kids in learning important 21st century skills and content. Dr. Judy Willis in a previous post wrote about the neurological benefits and rationale around using games for learning. She also gives tips about using the game model in the classroom. James Paul Gee has long been a champion for game-based learning in speeches, blogs, and books. Myths About Game-Based Learning First, let's clarify a couple things. Gee refers to teachers as "learning designers," and I couldn't agree more. Inspired by the work I've seen, here is an overview of components and structure for the everyday teacher to implement game-based learning Overall Structure: Individual Quests and Boss Levels A game-based learning unit should consist of both smaller quests and more robust boss levels. Boss levels are more rigorous missions that require students to synthesize the content and skills learned in the quests. Avatar

Βοήθημα Logo H LOGO λέμε ότι είναι μια γλώσσα προγραμματισμού, επειδή κάθε φορά δίνουμε εντολές από το πληκτρολόγιο στον υπολογιστή μας. Για να καταλάβουμε πως γίνεται αυτό, θα δούμε το παρακάτω παράδειγμα: Θέλουμε να σχεδιάσουμε στο πεζοδρόμιο μια γραμμή που να είναι πέντε βήματα μεγάλη. Ένας φίλος μας κρατάει στο χέρι του μια κιμωλία και περιμένει από εμάς να του πούμε τι να κάνει με την κιμωλία. H εντολή προς το φίλο μας είναι: "Προχώρα μπροστά πέντε βήματα και ζωγράφιζε τη γραμμή στο πεζοδρόμιο". Oπότε τώρα έχει ζωγραφίσει ο φίλος μας μια γραμμή η οποία είναι πέντε βήματα στο μήκος της. H LOGO δουλεύει με παρόμοιο τρόπο. Oι εντολές της κίνησης: Oι εντολές για να κινηθεί η χελώνα μας και να σχεδιάσει, είναι στην αγγλική γλώσσα, αλλά είναι πάρα πολύ εύκολες, ακόμα και για μικρά παιδιά του δημοτικού τα οποία δεν ξέρουν καλά αγγλικά. Εντολές LOGO Eντολές υπάρχουν και άλλες, και πως δουλεύουν θα το δούμε στη συνέχεια. Eντολή για σχηματισμό μιας γωνίας 90 μοιρών. Forward και μετά πατούμε το πλήκτρο ENTER.

Week 1 - What Is Connectivism? ~ CCK11 You are not logged in. [] [] [Outline] [Week 2] Dates: January 17 - 24, 2011 Overview At its heart, connectivism is the thesis that knowledge is distributed across a network of connections, and therefore that learning consists of the ability to construct and traverse those networks. It shares with some other theories a core proposition, that knowledge is not acquired, as though it were a thing.
