Dean Mantz's curator insight, April 30, 2014 9:45 AM

Thanks to Ana Cristina Pratas for sharing this resource.  I found the site provided a wealth of resources addressing education theories such as learning and cognitive, learner centered, and inquiry strategies.  I will definitely be sharing this site with my preservice students. 

Thomas Salmon's curator insight, May 5, 2014 2:59 PM

A free book covering learning theory useful for applications in higher education. And it is a wiki. Win :)

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 13, 2014 4:44 PM

This looks like a very detailed table of contents to considerable theory.

The Myth of Learning Styles

The Myth of Learning Styles | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
For many years educators were under the false notion that there were learning styles, and recent research from Howard Gardner, John Hattie and Gregory Yates shows there isn't such thing as a learning style.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, April 30, 2014 11:48 AM

Years ago I too bought into the idea of Learning Styles, but I learned through years of professional practice that, while students had learning preferences, those often changed with context. In addition, implementing learning styles in a classroom was impractical and ineffective. So, what I ended up doing was using what is now referred to as Universal Design for Learning (UDL), which calls for multiple forms of input and output.


For the best explanation of the topic read Dan Willingham's "The Myth of Learning Styles" http://www.changemag.org/Archives/Back%20Issues/September-October%202010/the-myth-of-learning-full.html

and "Why Learning Styles Don't Exist"

Protecting Students with Google Apps for Education | Privacy

Protecting Students with Google Apps for Education | Privacy | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Posted by Bram Bout, Director, Google for Education 

Today more than 30 million students, teachers and administrators globally rely on Google Apps for Education. Earning and keeping their trust drives our business forward. We know that trust is earned through protecting their privacy and providing the best security measures.

This is why, from day one, we turned off ads by default in Apps for Education services. Last year, we removed ads from Google Search for signed-in K-12 users altogether. So, if you’re a student logging in to your Apps for Education account at school or at home, when you navigate to Google.com, you will not see ads.

This Is Your Brain On Literature

This Is Your Brain On Literature | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

"Research shows that reading rich narratives and metaphors activates areas of our brain outside of language, and frequent fiction reading is correlated with empathy. Brain scans are revealing what happens in our heads when we read a detailed description, an evocative metaphor or an emotional exchange between characters. Stories, this research is showing, stimulate the brain and even change how we act in life. The brain, it seems, does not make much of a distinction between reading about an experience and encountering it in real life; in each case, the same neurological regions are stimulated." | by Amir Aczel

This Is Your Brain on Great Literature
TIME

These findings will affirm the experience of readers who have felt illuminated and instructed by a novel, who have found themselves comparing a plucky young woman to Elizabeth Bennet or a tiresome pedant to Edward Casaubon. Reading great literature, it has long been averred, enlarges and improves us as human beings. Brain science shows this claim is truer than we imagined.

Moving Schools from Toxic to Transformative

The overarching theme repeatedly heard over the two-day Black Male Summit: African American males feel disconnected, misunderstood, and inadequately supported by teachers, principals and others involved in running their schools. To thrive, the presenters repeatedly stressed, schools must become more culturally focused and responsive to the emotional, social, and academic needs of all students."
