eLearning Papers nº43 «Los juegos aplicados y la ludificación, motores de cambio»

Descargar versión para imprimir

En este número de eLearningPapers analizamos diferentes enfoques y modelos que despiertan el potencial creativo de las personas y reúnen a equipos interdisciplinares para colaborar y crear juegos aplicados y aplicaciones ludificadas. Este número es una colaboración con la breve trayectoria de la Conferencia Europea sobre Aprendizaje basado en Juegos (ECGBL, por sus siglas en inglés) sobre este mismo tema (Pivec y Torrent, 2015).

Los artículos seleccionados analizan los requisitos fundamentales y los factores de éxito de los juegos aplicados y de los enfoques ludificados. Abrimos el número con Kemps, que compara dos juegos diseñados para promover una mejor comprensión del conflicto palestino-israelí; seguido de De la Hera, que evalúa el potencial de los juegos para una educación multicultural. Ambos artículos ilustran el uso de los juegos comerciales existentes en la educación con el objetivo de generar cambios de percepción, entendimiento y conducta. Por su parte, Coakly et al. describen el diseño y el desarrollo de los juegos creados con el objetivo de promover una vida sostenible y la pedagogía vinculada a ellos. Green Games –juegos ecológicos– (Green Games, 2015) es otro proyecto financiado por la UE para desarrollar habilidades y competencias, y áreas como la alimentación, las aguas residuales o la gestión energética en los sectores del turismo y la hostelería. Los tres artículos siguientes se centran en la ludificación. Basaiawmoit et al. demuestran el valor de la ludificación a la hora de asignar equipos a los alumnos, un problema importante en el aprendizaje colaborativo. Simões et al. evalúan el impacto de la ludificación en la participación de los alumnos en los cursos en línea. Lieberoth se pregunta «qué es lo que realmente funciona en la ludificación» y elabora algunas respuestas provocativas. Crombie presenta la redJam Today (JamToday, 2015), una iniciativa de veinticinco universidades europeas, centros de innovación, laboratorios de aprendizaje y viveros de empresas financiada por el programa para la innovación y la competitividad, ICT-PSP, de la UE. En sesiones de improvisación para la creación de juegos de cuarenta y ocho horas, Jam Today activa el potencial creativo de distintos actores para crear juegos de aprendizaje y recursos para profesores en áreas como las competencias electrónicas, la salud y el bienestar, o las matemáticas. Libin presenta ejemplos del potencial terapéutico que tiene la interacción lúdica para la tercera edad. Finalizamos con Kayali et al., que ofrecen pautas de diseño para la creación de juegos con impacto social.

Los artículos demuestran el potencial de los juegos aplicados y los enfoques ludificados como motor de cambio en diversas organizaciones, tanto en el sector educativo como en la sociedad en su conjunto.

Open Educational Resources (OER) in less used languages: a state of the art report  - July 2014
This report presents the results of an in-depth investigation and analysis of Open Educational Resources (OER) in 23 languages, including the target languages of the LangOER consortium: Dutch, Frisian, Greek, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish and Swedish. Target languages have also been extended to more European languages, regional and minority languages (RML) such as: Catalan, Danish, Estonian, Finnish, Flemish, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Latgalian, Norwegian, Romanian and Welsh. The investigation also included a more global overview by using languages such as English, French, and German for reference
The scope of this report is to present the state of the art of OER in less used languages, and to frame some current features of relevance for further development.
The study will be translated in several languages (Dutch, Frisian, Greek, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish and Swedish) by early September.

Opening up #Education, an initiative to promote innovative teaching and learning #MOOC #OER

Hoy , he recordado aquel BLUFF ... uno de los más gigantes en la historia de la Universidad Española ... el PROCESO DE BOLONIA ... o el PLAN BOLONIA ...recuerdan? .... porque me habré acordado de eso? ... en fin, hoy .. escibimos algunas cosillas sobre el tema, ... . pero recuerdo , este hit en las redes sociales : que publicamos el jueves, 10 de diciembre de 2009 Plan Bolonia explicado sin rodeos. Papel para envolver chorizos ... 
que como decía en un Comentario a las apreciaciones de Jose L Castillo ... "A mí lo que más me ha llamao la atención, son las risas sarcásticas del resto de la mesa... saben de lo que habla el que habla"
 ...así que como diría el poeta si no quieres que cambie nada haz un plan ... como el de España y la corrupción ...  Hoy traemos a este espacio la siguiente noticia sobre un programa que se presenta de  la Comisión Europea  ... el
Wednesday 25 September: The Commission presents Opening up Education, an initiative to promote innovative teaching and learning through new technologies and open educational resources

The news:
The European Commission will publish a Communication on Opening up Education which aims to stimulate high-quality, innovative ways of learning and teaching through digital technologies and content. By making learning environments more open and delivering quality education more efficiently, the EU will create a better skilled workforce which will boost jobs, competitiveness and growth.
Opening up Education proposes measures at EU and national levels, including helping learning institutions, teachers and students of all ages to acquire digital skills and new learning methods. The initiative also seeks to support the development and availability of open educational resources.
The background:
Digital technologies are radically changing the landscape of education and training. Open educational resources (OER), such as 'Massive Open Online Courses' (MOOCs), are challenging traditional models and practices. These global changes are having an increasing impact on education and training institutions, teachers, learners and publishers, among others. But as well as challenges, the ICT revolution brings new opportunities – for new audiences, new providers and new business models. Despite the efforts that Member States and the EU have made so far in the area of digitisation, European education and training systems are losing the lead in this process of change.
The event:
Neelie Kroes, Vice-President responsible for the Digital Agenda, and Androulla Vassiliou, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, will jointly present Opening up Education at the midday briefing in the Commission's press room. A press release and a staff working document will be available on the day.

Online Master Of Science in computer Science. #MOOC . @GeorgiaTech , @Udacity and @ATT


Hoy nos hemos acordado del paper sobre los MOOC aceptado por el International Congress Ikasnabar 2013 6º Congreso Internacional de Educación Abierta y Tecnología que se celebró en Zalla  y que escribimos al alimón er torito @eraser Juan Calderón, con Ainhoa Ezeiza y Mertxe Jimeno (que podéis leer en nuestro post del jueves, 11 de julio de 2013 La falsa disrupción de los MOOC. La invasión de un modelo obsoleto. @ainhoaeus @eraser @mertxejbadiola en #ikasnabar13) ...en el que hablábamos de la invasión publicitaria de los MOOC y su falsa disrupción como modelo  de aprendizaje y otras cosillas...  así que hoy traemos a este espacio , gracias al twitter de  @pgnalda ..  (por cierto , mencantó me llamara camionero ... ;-) )

Así que aquí tienen, la noticia de la alianza del georgia Tech college of Computing, que se alía con at & t y Udacity (MOOC) .. y crean un MOOC .... Master on Line of Science in Computer Science ... "open" ( The courses will be online and free for those not seeking a degree; those in the degree program will take proctored exams and have access to tutoring, online office hours and other support.)  para el que no quiera certificado y por 6.600 $ dólares según el New York Times , según 7.000 $ según la Georgia Tech   si quieres certificación oficial ... 45.000 $ es el costo en presencial en la Georgia tech ..  ahhhh!!! se me olvidaba AT&T pone en el asunto una donación de 2 millones de $ lo que me ha recordado unas palabras de Bertolt Brecht de 1939 (jafotito arrecogida gracias al hiper twittero mexicano apañero en la #guerrillaonirica ... ;-) salúos y salú desde Zeviya CalYFlato IndePendiente

"The plan is for Georgia Tech to provide the content and professors and to get 60 percent of the revenue, and for Udacity to offer the computer platform, provide course assistants and receive the other 40 percent. The projected budget for the test run starting in January is $3.1 million — including $2 million donated by AT&T, which will use the program to train employees and find potential hires — with $240,000 in profits. By the third year, the projection is for $14.3 million in costs and $4.7 million in profits."

En la web del Master nos lo anuncian así : 
The Georgia Institute of Technology, Udacity and AT&T have teamed up to offer the first accredited Online Master of Science in Computer Science (OMS CS) that students can earn exclusively through the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) delivery format and for a fraction of the cost of traditional, on-campus programs.

This collaboration brings together leaders in education, MOOCs and industry to apply the disruptive power of massively open online teaching to widen the pipeline of high-quality, educated talent needed in computer science fields. Not only will OMS CS serve as a catalyst for transformational change throughout higher education, it could serve as a blueprint to help the United States address the current shortage of workers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields.

 






Aquí os dejo la noticia en la web de la Georgia Tech : Georgia Tech Announces Massive Online Master's Degree in Computer Science

The Georgia Institute of Technology College of Computing announced today that it will offer the first professional Online Master of Science degree in computer science (OMS CS) that can be earned completely through the “massive online” format. The degree will be provided in collaboration with online education leader Udacity Inc. and AT&T.

All OMS CS course content will be delivered via the massive open online course (MOOC) format, with enhanced support services for students enrolled in the degree program. Those students also will pay a fraction of the cost of traditional on-campus master’s programs; total tuition for the program is initially expected to be below $7,000. A pilot program, partly supported by a generous gift from AT&T, will begin in the next academic year. Initial enrollment will be limited to a few hundred students recruited from AT&T and Georgia Tech corporate affiliates. Enrollment is expected to expand gradually over the next three years.

“Georgia Tech’s vision is to define the technological research university of the 21st century. We will explore technologies and instructional approaches that will improve our role as a leading provider of the best and most effective education in the state of Georgia, the nation and the world,” said Rafael L. Bras, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at Georgia Tech.
Georgia Tech has been involved in online education for more than 30 years, and in the past year has taken a national leadership role in massive open online courses. Offering a master’s degree in this format is the next step in expanding Georgia Tech’s online offerings.

Master’s Degree Is New Frontier of Study Online


College of Computing at Georgia Tech


Zvi Galil, the dean of the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The institute plans to offer a master’s degree in computer science through massive open online courses, or MOOCs.




Next January, the Georgia Institute of Technology plans to offer a master’s degree in computer science through massive open online courses for a fraction of the on-campus cost, a first for an elite institution. If it even approaches its goal of drawing thousands of students, it could signal a change to the landscape of higher education. 
(...)

But the courses have not yet produced profound change, partly because they offer no credit and do not lead to a degree. The disruption may be approaching, though, as Georgia Tech, which has one of the country’s top computer science programs, plans to offer a MOOC-based online master’s degree in computer science for $6,600 — far less than the $45,000 on-campus price.

Open Education Resources: Innovation for Development 


International Perspectives on Technology-Enhanced Learning

University of British Columbia
Faculty of Education
Vancouver, Canada
13 July 2013

Jointly authored by
Professor Asha Kanwar and Dr. K. Balasubramanian
Commonwealth of Learning

Distinguished Colleagues, It is a pleasure and an honour to be here and I am very grateful to the Professor Tom Sork and the organisers for the opportunity. My topic today is: Open Education Resources: Innovation for Development?
I will first look at the Commonwealth context and the issues of development that need to be addressed as a matter of urgency if the internationally agreed development goals are to be achieved by 2015. I will then look at the emergence of OER which are seen as an innovation that cut costs, improve quality and enhance access to education and training. This will lead to the question of whether the development and use of OER are addressing some of the development challenges in many countries of the global south. I will outline some of the strategies that we need to harness OER so that the development objectives can be achieved. Finally, I will share some examples of what my own organization, the Commonwealth of Learning had done to promote OER for development.
But first a word about the Commonwealth of Learning or COL which might well be one of the best kept secrets of beautiful British Columbia.
COL is an intergovernmental organisation, established by Commonwealth Heads of Government when they met in Vancouver in 1987. COL is the only Commonwealth intergovernmental organization to be located outside London. We are very grateful to the Government of Canada for hosting us and for its continued financial and intellectual support.
