Proof that playing all those games in Japanese totally did pay off! The JLPT is a huge milestone for anyone hoping to learn Japanese and level "N2" has been my goal for a very long time. N2 is usually one of the minimum requirements for anyone hoping to find a job in Japan outside of teaching English so passing the test is an important step career wise in addition to just making gaming more fun and easy to understand! Here's a little discussion of a few resources that got me started when I was beginning to study Japanese language :) The links for the resources I mention in the video are here - Erin's Challenge - http://www.erin.ne.jp/en/ Memrise - http://www.memrise.com Genki English Textbooks - http://genki.japantimes.co.jp Good luck on your own studies :)

This project-based course explores the process of designing and developing educational games, including issues associated with assessment, implementation and marketing. ↓ More info below. ↓ Take this course free on edX: https://www.edx.org/course/design-development-games-learning-mitx-11-127x ABOUT THIS COURSE The field of learning games is rapidly growing, with interest from academics, publishers, schools and startups. But what makes a good learning game? Where do ideas come from and how do you create them? These are the questions that this course tries to answer. The premise of learning games from some perspectives seems like a perfect and easy solution - get people to learn things they don’t want to by motivating them through game play. To others it seems like an oxymoron - if learning is hard then it can’t possibly be fun at the same time. The key to designing good learning games is to reconcile these perspectives by creating games that focus on creating environments based on “hard fun.” This idea will be a central tenet of this course. Through six units comprising nine weeks, we will look at the evolution of educational video games and hear from experts working on many aspects of learning games from design to development to implementation. For the course project, participants will create their own learning game. This course utilizes Gameblox, a game editor that uses a block based programming language to allow anyone to create games. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN - Characteristics of a “learning game” and an understanding of ways that games can provide meaningful experiences - How to design, develop, and test a learning game, utilizing educational frameworks and incorporating feedback - Types and kinds of challenges regarding implementation and assessment of learning games - Current state and emerging trends of the educational games market

Truthfully, anyone can learn to build games if they really want to. If you want to learn to make your own games, I provide a 4 step process that will take you from start to finish... multiple times.

"Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think,” Steve Jobs said in 1995. But for a beginner, learning to code can be intimidating. Enter CodeSpells. UC San Diego's Sarah Guthals has developed this video game to teach people how to code. The story line is simple: you’re a wizard that uses spells (i.e. code) to navigate through the world, fight off foes, and solve problems. While experienced coders can delve deep into the programming to create some truly devastating spells, newbies can easily experiment with the simple drag-and-drop coding interface. The research highlighted in this video has been supported in part by the National Science Foundation I-Corps grant. http://codespells.org — To get updates and information about CodeSpells http://learntomod.com — A similar software developed by us to teach coding through Minecraft http://thoughtstem.com — Getting CS education into your classroom/school FEATURING: Sarah Guthals, alum of the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego --- Why Science Needs Art: https://youtu.be/-junNCPl3Zs Subscribe! http://bit.ly/1fUWHyY Fig. 1 explores new ideas and research out of the University of California — ranging from science, technology, art and humanities.

Over the last decade, video games have emerged as a leading technology medium for educational and assessment innovation. Games have become a “go to” medium for engaging both youth and adults in intellectual knowledge and skills across domains as diverse as language learning, science, and civic engagement. But what’s behind all this excitement? What are the core mechanics that enable games to function as a vehicle for thinking and learning? Constance Steinkuehler is an Associate Professor in Digital Media at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, Co-Director of the Games+Learning+Society (GLS) lab at the Wisconsin Institute of Discovery, and Chair of their annual GLS Conference.

Abstract: This talk starts from the premise that we are living at a time when human stupidity has brought us to the verge of disaster. At the same time, while schools and colleges are largely stuck in the past, a new paradigm of 21st Century learning has arisen out of school creating new possibilities, but new equity divides as well. To understand this new paradigm and how to spread it before it is too late for us humans we need to rethink how language, mind, human experience, digital tools like video games, and leaning can work together to create collective intelligence. In particular I will argue that our current views of learning and teaching in schools seriously misunderstands language and literacy, let alone new digital media. Speaker’s Biography: James Paul Gee is the Mary Lou Fulton Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies and Regents’ Professor at Arizona State University. He is a member of the National Academy of Education. His book Sociolinguistics and Literacies (Fourth Edition 2011) was one of the founding documents in the formation of the “New Literacy Studies”. His book An Introduction to Discourse Analysis (Third Edition 2011) brings together his work on a methodology for studying communication in its cultural settings, an approach that has been widely influential over the last two decades. His most recent books have dealt with video games, language, and learning. What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy (Second Edition 2007) argues that good video games are designed to enhance learning through effective learning principles supported by research in the Learning Sciences. Situated Language and Learning (2004) places video games within an overall theory of learning and literacy and shows how they can help us in thinking about the reform of schools. The Anti-Education Era: Creating Smarter Students through Digital Media appeared in 2013. Prof. Gee has published widely in journals in linguistics, psychology, the social sciences, and education.

Dr. Chris Haskell earned a 1.6 GPA in high school, but later went on to earn a doctorate degree in education. He's made it his life's passion, but not the traditional "by the gradebook" kind of education. Chris demonstrates how education can be so much more rewarding for children when there are goal-based objectives and mechanisms for learning that provoke curiosity and creativity, not suppress it. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

James Paul Gee is an expert on how video games fit within an overall theory of learning and literacy. He is the Mary Lou Fulton Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies, Division of Curriculum and Instruction, at the Mary Lou Fulton College of Education at Arizona State University. He is also a faculty affiliate of the Games, Learning, and Society group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a member of the National Academy of Education. "What is a video game?" Gee asks. "It's just a set of problems; it could be anything. Doesn't matter what the problems are. All a video game is, is a set of problems that you must solve in order to win." (0:02) "What I'm pushing is really not digital media," James clarifies. "It's what I call 'situated and embodied learning.' And what I mean by that is being able to solve problems with what you know, not just know a bunch of inert facts. But be able to use facts and information as tools for problem solving in specific contexts." (3:26) Learn more about James Paul Gee on his personal website at http://jamespaulgee.com.

Google Tech Talk (more info below) June 3, 2011 Presented by Jan Plass and Bruce Homer. ABSTRACT Digital Games are pervasive, constantly evolving in their complexity and features, and are heralded by many as an agent for education reform. Arguably, digital games are also among the least understood tools in education, particularly in K-12 settings. Proponents have made a strong case for the potential of games to engage students in meaningful learning activities that are highly motivating, engaging, and fun. However, research has only slowly been able to gather evidence for the effectiveness of games for learning. In the first half of this presentation we will provide a brief summary of the case of using games for learning and will review empirical research studies we conducted over the past 15 years that investigated a variety of cognitive, social, and emotional design patterns to make games and game-like environments effective learning tools. In the second half of the talk we will discuss a series of questions and challenges related to the study of games. These issues include the design of learning mechanics and assessment mechanics for games for learning, the approaches to embedded assessment, and questions related to data mining of the rich log files of game events and user logs as well as biometric data such as posture data, EKG, GSR, and EMG that these assessments generate. Speaker Info: Jan L. Plass is Professor of Educational Communication and Technology in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University, where he co-directs the Games for Learning Institute. He is the founding director of the CREATE Consortium for Research and Evaluation of Advanced Technology in Education. His research is at the intersection of cognitive science, learning sciences, and design, and seeks to enhance the design of visual environments. His current focus is on cognitive and emotional aspects of information design and interaction design of simulations and educational games for math and science education. He has received funding for his research from the IES, the NSF, the NIH and, most recently, from Microsoft Research, the Motorola Foundation, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Dr. Plass serves on the editorial review boards of some of the most highly ranked journals in his field, including the Journal of Educational Psychology, Educational Technology Research and Development, Computers in Human Behavior, Journal of Computing in Higher Education, and the Journal of Research on Technology in Education. Dr. Plass received his MA in Mathematics and Physics Education and his Ph.D. in Educational Technologies from Erfurt University (PH Erfurt, Germany). Bruce D. Homer is an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology in the Learning, Development and Instruction subprogram at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. He is director of the Child Interactive Learning and Development (CHILD) Lab. He is also training director for the Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Research Training (IPoRT) program, and Director of Research at the Consortium for Research and Evaluation of Advanced Technologies in Education (CREATE). Dr. Homer's research examines the ways in which children acquire and use cultural tools to store and transmit knowledge (e.g., language, literacy, and information technologies), and how these tools transform developmental and learning processes. Of particular interest is how development and learning affect the ways in which mental representations are formed. Dr. Homer's current research includes work on multimedia learning environments, videogames for learning, and language, cognition and symbolic understanding in children. He has served as consultant for a number of educational projects, including his current work with project UMIGO, which is funded by a US Department of Education Ready to Learn Grant to developing a transmedia curriculum to support young children's acquisition of math skills. Dr. Homer's research has been funded by the NSF, the IES, the NIH and Microsoft Research. He completed a B.Sc. in Psychology at Dalhousie University, and a M.A. and Ph.D. in Human Development and Applied Psychology at the Ontario Institute for Studies of Education at the University of Toronto.

So you want to learn or improve your English. But where should you start? When you learn a new language, there is so much material to cover: vocabulary, grammar, syntax, slang, pronunciation... With so many topics to study, you may not know where to focus your attention. In this video, I will give you some tips to organize your schedule and decide what you should work on. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced speaker, you can always find something to improve on, and I will give you the tools you need to devise a good plan. Hint: it's more simple than you think! http://www.engvid.com/steps-to-learning-english-where-to-begin/ TRANSCRIPT [Singing] Hi. James. Greer. James Greer. From engVid. [Laughs]. Not Bond, and I know you think I was going to say Bond. I know. But listen, Bond always has an important mission he's got to do, right? 007. And so do I. Today we have a mission. We're going to learn how to study English. I know in many places, many websites, they tell you, and to teach you grammar and idioms and phrasal verbs. But then, there's the big question of you, and: How do you study, and how do you choose what is important for you at this moment? Maybe you're advanced. Maybe you're a beginner. Maybe you know this, and maybe you don't. After today's lesson and we do our mission, you'll know exactly what you have to do. Okay? So, we're going to go to the board in a second, and take a look. What steps should we take in order to learn? By the time you're done this video, you'll know exactly... Or you should know where you are, where you need to go, and when you're going to be done. Ready? Let's go. E. E is standing here saying: "Where do I start? Grammar, vocabulary, or speaking?" Common, and seems to make sense, I mean, you go to learn a language-right?-you go on a website, they start throwing things at you. You go to a school, they say you need this, this, and this. But you don't really know. So, I'm going to give you the tools to decide that. First thing we're going to do is: What's the first thing you need? Grammar? No. What? Conversation? No. Vocabulary. What? Well, look. If you can't say: "bathroom" when you go to a country, you're going to pee yourself. Okay? "Hungry", you won't get food. You don't need to know everything to get basic information done. And that's what we should look at first. Basic information for a beginner really is vocabulary. And instead of all the fancy stuff you need, you don't need much. You need you, and a little bit of time, and to have some fun. Why? I'm going to suggest: For basic communication, get vocabulary. I'm telling you right now if I see you or any English-speaking person sees you, and you see... You say: "Drink. Thirsty." There's no grammar, but they'll go: "Oh, the bar is over there." If you say: "Washroom. Please", they'll go: "Oh, toilet is over there." They use sentence, you use words. Sometimes you just touch your belly and go: "Ahh!" They'll go: "Oh, you want food." You don't need all that stuff. People will tell you you need to learn grammar, and this and that. You don't. And here's how you get your first vocabulary. Do what you love to do. Play video games. I've had... I don't know how many students play video games, say they learned how to fire, duck, words that we wouldn't teach them for a while, because they were playing games. Other people come in: "Dah-dah-dah-dah-dah, [sings]", singing. I go: -"What the hell?" -"I love to sing", and they sing a song, they sound like they're just, you know, from this country. Then they speak very terrible accent. You know what I'm saying, right? [Laughs] But when they sing, it's like the gods have come down. I mean, literally, you go: "Are you...? You were born here, right?" Cool slang. You know? YOLO, you only live once. Right? ASAP, as soon as possible. When you do these things, you're learning because you want to learn. You're not even realising you're learning, and it's going to make you want to learn more because... You know, we'll get to the second one and you'll understand. But you want to communicate in a much better way. Okay? So, get the meaning of basic words. "Hungry", "food", "toilet", "money". You know that one, right? You need those things. If you have those things, you can start your adventure in learning English. Okay? And you're going to do it by doing things you love. Video games, music, cool slang. Right? Come on. Now we're making language fun and easy for you, and that's what we should do, because you'll learn it faster. All right? And then here's the bad news: Hard work is on its way, so let's move over to the intermediate.
