Intro to the 13 Good Learning Principles of Well-designed Video Games
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

In 2013, Kurt Squire and Constance Steinkuehler led the "Video Games and Learning MOOC" at University of Wisconsin-Madison. This video series, presented by Learning & Literacy Specialist, James Paul Gee, was a part of that course.

This quick-to-view, accessible video series explores the 13 "Good Learning Principles" found within well-designed video games; these learning principles align precisely with similar beneficial learning principles that are widely embraced within successful classrooms and other educational environments. The series' components were originally identified and discussed in James Paul Gee's book "What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy" (https://us.macmillan.com/books/9781403984531/whatvideogameshavetoteachusaboutlearningandliteracysecondedition).

The videos offer educators of all types that are interested in the learning principles of well-designed games a swift yet comprehensive overview of usable language and pedagogical concepts related to effective games-based learning; this information can be used to spark further research and discussion, or could be utilized to develop new learning pathways and methodologies in libraries and classrooms.

YouTube Video Description: "Video games aren’t just fun, they can be powerful vehicles for learning as well. In this course, we discuss research on the kinds of thinking and learning that go into video games and gaming culture, benefits and drawbacks of digital gameplay, tensions between youth culture and traditional education, and new developments intended to bridge that growing divide."

Kindergarten Readiness in Wisconsin - Report from a research study
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

Wisconsin’s, gaps between Black and White student high school graduation rates (Richards, 2016) and Black and White fourth-grade math and reading scores (U.S. Department of Education, 2015) are the largest in the nation. These inequalities have led to criticisms of Wisconsin’s schools and teachers as ineffective in bolstering the success of students of color and those who are economically disadvantaged.

This report from researchers at UW-Madison describes differences in school readiness as reflected by literacy skills at Kindergarten entry among children in Wisconsin. We document inequalities in literacy skills by race/ethnicity, family income and place. Our results show that teachers and schools in Wisconsin face a daunting challenge in producing equitable educational outcomes for our children.

Native American Cultural Children's Stories

Rating
0.0 stars

The cultural children's story project allows students to explore Native American culture through a new lens by authoring and illustrating children's stories that teach children between the ages of four and six a lesson or tale unique to Native cultural traditions. The exemplar stories are laminated, bound, and given as gifts to an area elementary school with a primarily Native student body. Student authors read the stories to the children, and the books become part of the children's classroom library. The children learn cultural traditions from a young age and see their mentors (often Native students as well) as role models and writers. The authors learn the skills to develop their stories from conception to publication to presentation.Cultural Children's Story Video Lesson
