Just 25 minutes of mindfulness meditation alleviates stress, study shows | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it
Mindfulness meditation has become an increasingly popular way for people to improve their mental and physical health, yet most research supporting its benefits has focused on lengthy, weeks-long training programs. New research is the first to show that brief mindfulness meditation practice -- 25 minutes for three consecutive days -- alleviates psychological stress. The study investigates how mindfulness meditation affects people's ability to be resilient under stress.

If your observation style is hands-off because traditional learning models permitted learners to be passive, it’s time to up the ante: get involved, talk with teachers and students, and become a co-learner and instructional coach.

The old structures reflect a tired concept of teaching as the delivery of information. As new research provides new insights into the workings of the brain, schools need to be completely rethought to embody new concepts of learning.

steven cessario's comment, August 18, 4:31 PM
I think school can get in the way of giving young people the opportunity to find themselves or enjoy learning. Grades can inhibit a student to actually learn the task or because they're concerned more about the grade. And schools can force student to read books and do certain work they're not passionate about. Although, I think a lot of schools are adapting to new ways to teaching.
Adrian Bertolini's comment, August 18, 8:51 PM
Just had a conversation about grades with a secondary college yesterday. When the students become more focused on that then learning then we know we have erected a barrier!

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it

"Project based learning is a teaching learning methodology that has been widely praised for its efficacy in enhancing learning achievements.The premise underlying PBL revolves around  getting students engaged in authentic learning events through the integration of mini-projects in class. These projects can be as short as one day and as long as a year. However, there is a difference between mere projects and project based learning. This table from Teachbytes provides a great illustration of the nuances between the two concepts."

Excellent table reminding about the difference between projects and project based learning. Projects are too easily assigned as exercises to students, without paying attention to the issues on the right hand side of this table.
