Video Games Used as Learning Tools in Schools

Video Games Used as Learning Tools in Schools
 

Technology has already created many new educational tools to help teachers improve learning in the classroom. One method uses video gaming elements to get students more interested and involved in the subjects they learn.

One American school using such technology is Dag Hammarskjold Middle School in Wallingford, Connecticut. On a recent afternoon, about 20 children at the school watched a computer screen at the front of the room.

The students were taking part in an educational activity that looks a lot like popular internet video games like “Fortnite.” The schoolchildren compete in challenges and can collect points to unlock powers, clothing and pets for their players in the game.

Unlike many video games, the students are not fighting against each other. Instead, the classroom games are being used by teachers to present different school subjects. The students can earn points as they pass through different educational levels of the game.

Caiden McManus is a 13-year-old student at Dag Hammarskjold. He told the Associated Press he finds the game-based learning experience “a lot of fun.” He says working with pets is his favorite part because it helps him progress faster in the game. “To train the pets, you gain as many gold pieces as possible,” he said.

Gianna Gurga is a teacher at Dag Hammarskjold. She told the AP she had been looking for new ways to get more out of her students. So she decided to try a classroom gaming system called Classcraft. She says she has seen student improvements since she began using the tool in 2017. Her results even led other teachers to start using the gaming system.

“My kids are so addicted to it in the best way possible,” Gurga said.

With each correct answer, students receive points that can be used to buy things in the game. Points can also be exchanged for the chance to listen to music in class or take part in competitions against other classrooms. Students can also have points taken away if they behave badly.

​The Amana Academy in Atlanta, Georgia is also using the Classcraft system. Teacher Laura Bruster says the tool has been an important addition to her classroom. “Because it made me a participant with my students," she said. "I’m not just their teacher, I’m their game master. I control the fun of the classroom.”

Student players can use their different powers within a game to cooperate so they have a better chance to succeed as a group.

New York City middle school Quest to Learn was one of the first public schools to launch game-based learning when it opened 10 years ago. Researchers have followed the school in an effort to measure long-term results of educational gaming on students.

In the last school year, 43 percent of Quest to Learn’s students met state requirements for students tested in English. This compared to 41 percent of students across the whole city. Twenty-nine percent of the school’s students met state requirements after being tested in math. This was lower than the 33 percent citywide who met the state math requirements.

But supporters of game-based learning say testing alone should not be used as the only measure of student results.

Ross Flatt is director of programs and partnerships for the not-for-profit group Institute of Play. The group uses game design elements to develop new learning experiences. It says outside studies have shown that students taking part in educational gaming do show growth in important areas. The main areas of improvement include student cooperation with each other, creative thinking and empathy, the group said.

To be all downhill

EPISODE 190107 / 07 JAN 2019

Summary 

Rob's very pleased with himself. He's done all his work and it's only Wednesday! Does this mean it's all downhill until the weekend? Feifei is about to spoil his fun by explaining there is more than one meaning to the phrase 'to be all downhill'. Find out what they are in this programme.

Transcript

Feifei
Hello and welcome to The English We Speak. I'm Feifei.

Rob
And hello I’m Rob.

Feifei
You're looking pleased with yourself, Rob.

Rob
I am! I've finished all of my work.

Feifei
Really. All of it?

Rob
Yes. Scripts written, programmes recorded and edited, meetings cancelled – I think I deserve a cup of coffee… or maybe something stronger!

Feifei
But it's only Wednesday and you've done all of your work! So what does that mean?

Rob
It means it's all downhill to the weekend.

Feifei 
All downhill? Oh I get it! When you are going downhill, on a bike for example, it's easy. So when things are about to get easier, after a difficult or challenging time, we can describe the situation as being 'all downhill'.

Rob
Spot on, Feifei. Once we've heard some examples, it's going to be all downhill until pub time!

Examples
Yeah! Our building plans have been approved. It's all downhill from here on.

Once I've completed this final assignment, it'll be all downhill until I get my qualification.

Feifei
This is The English We Speak from BBC Learning English. And I'm with Rob, who's done all of his work and says it's going to be all downhill until the weekend – that is, things are going to be easy. But, Rob, I have a question.

Rob
Oh yes?

Feifei
The phrase 'to be all downhill' isn't always used in a positive situation. Sometimes it is used to describe situations that get worse. Such as…

Example
The film's opening scene was amazing, but it was all downhill after that - there was no story and the acting was appalling!

Rob
Feifei are you absolutely sure about this?

Feifei
Yes, it's true – and your week is definitely going to be all downhill.

Rob
In a bad way, I suppose?

Feifei
Yep. Neil's just gone off sick and you've got to do all his work now.

Rob
Crikey! This script for this programme has suddenly gone downhill.

Feifei
You had better save that drink for later. See ya.

Rob
Bye.

Bangkok battles air pollution for fifth consecutive day

Bangkok and areas in its vicinity continued to be in the grip of air pollution for the fifth straight day on Monday.


 

Smog seen at the Skytrain station construction site in Pathum Thani’s Khu Khot area on Monday morning.

Bangkok and areas in its vicinity continued to be in the grip of air pollution for the fifth straight day on Monday.

The Pollution Control Department (PCD) reported that the amount of particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microns (PM2.5) in 19 roadside areas exceeded the safety limit of 50 micrograms per cubic metre, while nine other places had levels that could negatively impact health. 

Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) Governor Pol General Aswin Kwanmuangm, meanwhile, said city authorities continued to undertake measures to reduce dust particles. He said all the 50 district offices had dispatched workers to spray water and wash roads at risky spots, including the area in front of Din Daeng Police Station, which is among the worst-hit.

The PCD said weather conditions and lack of winds had partially contributed to the surge of dust. Areas reporting PM2.5 beyond safety levels included Kanchanaphisek Road in Bangkok’s Bang Khun Thien district, Khlong Chan area in Bang Kapi district, Intharapitak Road in Thon Buri district, Lat Phrao Road in Wang Thong Lang district, Din Daeng Road in Din Daeng district, Tambon Nakhon Pathom in the Muang district of Nakhon Pathom province, Tambon Song Khanong in the Phra Pradaeng district of Samut Prakan province, Tambon Bang Sao Thong in Samut Prakan’s Bang Sao Thong district, and Rama II Road in the Muang district of Samut Sakhon province.

The PCD warned that the air quality may continue to pose a threat to public health on Tuesday and urged people to stay indoors or wear N95-rated face masks if they go out. 

It urged cars and trucks that belch black exhaust smoke to stay off the roads while people should avoid lighting fires outdoors. People can follow air-quality updates via the phone application “Air4thai” or the website http://air4thai.pcd.go.th.

BMA Governor Aswin said the city’s measure to spray water and wash roads since Friday night had led to some improvement with dust particle levels dropping at six locations as of Monday morning – Wang Thong Lang district saw its reading fall from 97 micrograms per cubic metre to 70; Bang Khor Laem district saw its reading fall sharply from 103 micrograms to 55, and the reading in Thon Buri district fell from 99 micrograms to 65. He said city workers would keep implementing the measure until the dust particle levels returned to the safe limits.

Taxis biggest problem for tourist police

national January 03, 2019 10:19

By The Nation

Taxi problems were the biggest issue for tourist police last year among thousands of arrests, the Tourist Police Bureau said on Wednesday.

Tourist and Sports Minister Weerasak Kowsurat said that from January to October last year, tourist police cracked down on thousands of crimes ranging from overcharging taxis, to illegal entertainment venues.

Last year tourist police beefed up crackdowns on unruly taxis and unlawful tour guides. He said in 2018, police arrested 12,679 taxi drivers - including over 5,668 drivers who refused to pick up passengers, 3,408 drivers who refuse to use meters, and 1,659 drivers who overcharged - up from 1,681, 255, and 120 driver arrests during the same period a year earlier.

Police also arrested 1,581 unauthorised tour guides, and 390 so-called “sitting guides”, who use their licenses to accompany an unauthorised guide who can speak foreign languages. The number was up from 132 and nine guides arrested in 2017.

Tourist police also arrested 6,333 low-quality tour operators, 26 vendors who offered overpriced products to tourists, and raided 35 illegal entertainment venues. They also found 1,406 cases of illicit drugs at tourist venues and there were also 161 cases of “influential people” carrying firearms in tourist areas and 9,533 cases where tourists were affected.
