  • 7 TED Talks about gaming’s potential
    Every educator needs some inspiration now and then, and these days, such inspiration can be found online in just a few seconds. The internet brings inspiring and motivational speakers and experts to anyone with a connection and an internet-ready device. TED Talks are some of today’s most popular examples of the internet’s power to expand learning opportunities to all. Each month, we’ll bring you a handful of inspiring TED Talks. Some will focus specifically on education; others will highlight innovative practices that have long-lasting impact. But all will inspire and motivate educators and students alike. Did you miss our most recent TED Talks features? You can find them here. 1. Gaming can make a better world Games like World of Warcraft give players the means to save worlds, and incentive to learn the habits of heroes. What if we could harness this gamer power to solve real-world problems? Jane McGonigal says we can, and explains how. 2. Gaming to re-engage boys in learning In her talk, Ali Carr-Chellman pinpoints three reasons boys are tuning out of school in droves, and lays out her bold plan to re-engage them: bringing their culture into the classroom, with new rules that let boys be boys, and video games that teach as well as entertain. 3. Your brain on video games How do fast-paced video games affect the brain? Step into the lab with cognitive researcher Daphne Bavelier to hear surprising news about how video games, even action-packed shooter games, can help us learn, focus and, fascinatingly, multitask. (Filmed at TEDxCHUV.) 4. Massively multi-player...thumb wrestling? What happens when you get an entire audience to stand up and connect with one another? Chaos, that's what. At least, that's what happened when Jane McGonigal tried to teach TED to play her favorite game. Then again, when the game is "massively multiplayer thumb-wrestling," what else would you expect?

Kilte-Awlaelo Schools Development Association successfully celebrated its 9th anniversary in Boston, MA on July 21, 2012. The Boston and Maine brothers and sisters were well prepared for the success of the event. Members who flew to Boston to attend the event were also well prepared. Most members rented their own cars from the airport which helped to reduce the burden of transportation on the hosting city brothers and sisters. The time they were going to spend to transport members used it to coordinate other activities of the event. And that strategy worked perfectly.
