MIT’s Education Arcade and Scheller Teacher Education Program are launching EdTechX, a series of six-week long MITx online courses on EdX.
Highlights from the CMS 10th anniversary symposium.
MIT’s Scheller Teacher Education Program (STEP) is seeking a talented web application developer with experience working for educational audiences or developing games.
“And games have figured out a way to encourage players to persist at solving challenging problems,” says Eric Klopfer of The Education Arcade.
“From our perspective, the goal was to come up with something the teacher can adopt without taking a big risk.”
Part of a research project called the Education Arcade that aims to make computer and video games a valuable component of teaching.
Drawing from a variety of fields, the roster of accomplished professionals includes academics, educators, policy makers and toy developers.
