What Shall we Tell the Children ?

349 views

Published on

Modern Classroom Education faces many unprecedented challenges and opportunities as a result of rapid developments in digital communication technologies since the birth of the Internet in the early 1990s. Since that time, the generation of students known as "Digital Natives" have been born into a world where desktop and home computers are commonplace, video games are available in homes as well as arcades and mobile phones are becoming ubquitous. As a consequence, for the first time in history, children have access to electronic devices which they can explore and interact with, sharing their experiences and problems with their peers. This paper examines the impact of digital technologies on teaching roles and practices in the classroom and illustrates how the concept of "Gamification" can provide a modern day solution to traditional teaching best practices.

  43. 43. Develop your Gam-Nav Skills !!! (Gamification Navigation) This technique can be applied to any human situation where a change In behaviour, understanding, attitude or perception is required
  44. 44. The Gam-Nav Golden Rules ● Always remember that the “driver” e.g. student has control over the destination ● You need to know the current status of the vehicle/driver (i.e. where they currently are) ● You need to know the desired destination of the journey (i.e. where you/your target wants to finish up) ● You need to calculate a route to that destination based on the preferences of “the driver” and the capabilities of “the vehicle” ● You need to be able to advise on progress to that destination, alternative routes and feasibility of the journey ● You need to be able to provide constant feedback to the driver and be prepared to suggest an alternative or more practical destination ● At a higher level of sophistication, you need to either make the desired destination as attractive as possible or alternative destinations as undesirable as possible (carrot and stick) ● You need to make the journey/route as engaging and enjoyable as possible
  45. 45. How to be a Great Gam-Dav Expert Introduce into any Situation Challenge Uncertainty Exploration Measurement Feedback Reflection (Debriefing) Control Intrisic Motivation
  46. 46. Conclusions ● E-Learning is here to stay ● Disruptive technologies will continue to revolutionise learning ● Machines will challenge knowledge professionals in all sectors ● We will demand even more immersion of all the senses ● Technology will empower but will it help develop our humanity? ● Teachers and their human skills are vital for education ● The future is in your hands !!
  47. 47. It’s E-Learning Jim but not as we know it !!! Your Mission – Explore New Worlds and Civilisations Boldly go where no man has gone before !!
  48. 48. Control the Future (or it might control YOU !!) Humans once used their skill and Intelligence to harness the potential of technology Now machines use their intelligence to harness the potential of humans
  49. 49. Any Questions ?
