A lesson from PBL

Posted on April 26, 2011 at 8:55pm 1 Comment

Those who have ever attempted to create a Problem Based Learning (PBL) lesson know how difficult it is to come up with a complex, multi-staged problem that directs the students toward learning the subject matter (objective), without explicitly stating it. Have you tried it out?

Found in Language – Lost in Translation

Posted on April 22, 2011 at 7:15pm 0 Comments

Game Mechanics and Teaching

Posted on April 19, 2011 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

I recently watched a video by social architect Amy Jo Kim who has worked with EA games, Ebay, Disney and Yahoo to name a few. She gave a Google talk relating to games and social media. I’ve recently been interested in bringing together game elements and teaching and have played around with it with my students. Having failed miserably at first, and then somehow succeeded a few times, it is definitely not easy to design a good lesson plan, or even series of lesson plans around game…

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
