Schools are finally catching on to the amazing opportunity that tablets bring to engage students to promote learning and skill building. With the expansive efforts to bring iPads to the classroom, students are tapping in to the opportunity to learn using the most natural and easy to use platform for delivering learning. Teachers are also discovering new tools to use in curriculum design and lesson planning to engage students while meeting Common Core State Standards (CCSS). From learning “games” to gesture-based exercises to content delivery, students are learning from the most easy-to-use device available on the market today.

  • Serious Games
  • “Serious Games are not chocolate-covered broccoli.” - Matthew Farber, Social Studies TeacherThe idea is that when a student masters the game, skills and knowledge are also mastered. Games that blur the line between fun and education can all too frequently fall into the trap of becoming "edutainment," thinly disguised educational software or "chocolate-covered broccoli.” A coating of sweet does not make the learning suddenly fun. While no one expects a learning game to be on par with a blockbuster AAA title, like Battlefield 4, there should be no excuse for poor design. When reviewing Serious Game titles, look for ones that involve game mechanics common in entertainment games, like decision making, problem solving and role playing.An engaging way to alleviate chocolate-covered broccoli concerns is to bring the class into the mix by asking students to playtest. After all, Serious Games are not replacements for the teacher. The teacher should facilitate the game-based activity and then lead a class discussion on both the content and the overall experience. Just because it's serious doesn't mean that it shouldn't be fun!Source:Why Serious Games Are Not Chocolate-Covered Broccolihttp://www.edutopia.org/blog/serious-games-not-chocolate-broccoli-matthew-farber

  • Nightmare: Malaria drops you into the bloodstream of a young girl infected with malaria. (iPhone/iPad, Android)By Psyop Games18 levels of fever-dream visuals through two worlds: Blood and BrainThe difference here is its message: malaria is dangerous and kills, especially in developing nations. Actress Susan Sarandon voices the beginning cut scene, and the action takes place within a sick young girl's blood vessels and brain. The mission is to save teddy bears while avoiding mosquitoes. It's dark and chilling, yet still engaging to play -- no easy feat! When you die, a message about malaria pops up, along with a plea for donating mosquito nets.Source:https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nightmare-malaria/id741194411?mt=8http://nightmare.againstmalaria.comWhy Serious Games Are Not Chocolate-Covered Broccolihttp://www.edutopia.org/blog/serious-games-not-chocolate-broccoli-matthew-farber

  • Minecraft in the Classroom Addresses ReadingGame-playing develops reading skills. Games skip the grammar and punctuation that lots of students struggle with and concentrate on comprehension. The real reason we read is to learn, experience new adventures, and find out what's over the next horizon. The only reason few teachers use game-playing for reading comprehension is they haven't yet thought of it.Source: Minecraft in the Classroom Teaches Reading and Morehttp://www.teachhub.com/minecraft-classroom-teaches-reading-writing-problem-solving
  • Minecraft in the Classroom Addresses Problem Solving Because Minecraft is not story-based, everything that happens requires a decision on the player's part. How well-thought out those decisions are affects what happens next. This is great motivation for critical thinking and problem solving. Of all Minecraft's educational strengths, this may be the greatest. Players start with nothing and must build their way to security, safety, food, shelter, companionship. What a primer in problem solving!Source: Minecraft in the Classroom Teaches Reading and Morehttp://www.teachhub.com/minecraft-classroom-teaches-reading-writing-problem-solving

    41. 41. What Common Core Expects What Games Deliver Close reading to determine what text says and make logical inferences. In most games, players can‘t progress without this. Determination of central ideas. Required to understand the game‘s big picture because few are based on common knowledge. Analysis of how and why individuals, events, ideas develop and interact. This is how players determine game mechanics. Interpretation of words and phrases. Many words are game-specific (domain- specific). Players figure out meaning while playing (in context). Assessment of point of view and purpose to shape content and style. This is how players determine good guys from bad. Integration and evaluation of content. Games include clues players must decode to advance. Delineation and evaluation of specific claims, as well as relevance and sufficiency of evidence. Players must use their brains to solve problems. That‘s fun. Proficient comprehension of complex texts. Games like Minecraft are complex. That's part of their appeal. Rarely does a player give up.
    42. 42. What Math Standard Expects What Games Deliver Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Students work to understand and solve problems within game constructs.. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. To play effectively requires student understand what is occurring and visualize solutions. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. The game‘s nature requires students interact with others to discern who can assist in achieving goals. Model. Game models a reality students likely will never experience, but wish they could. Use appropriate tools strategically. As with real life, players must determine what tools are available (both physical and psychological) and how to use them to achieve goals. Look for and make use of structure. Life in the game works better with a plan.
