ProfeRed's curator insight, August 20, 11:17 PM

"¿Para qué puede servir que los escolares de Primaria empleen un robot en el aula? Las aplicaciones van más allá de recurrir a la tecnología como un juguete. Se trata, más bien, de que los niños se acostumbren a la resolución de problemas, a fomentar su curiosidad, a lograr un aprendizaje significativo."...

A shocking statistic about the quality of education research

A shocking statistic about the quality of education research | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
A research study about research studies comes up with a cautionary finding.

 

For more than a decade, school reformers have said that education policy should be driven by “research” and “data,” but there’s a big question about how much faith anyone should have in a great deal of education research. This is so not only because the samples are too small or because some research projects are funded by specific companies looking for specific results, but because in nearly all cases, it appears that nobody can be certain their results are completely accurate.


“I would love to believe that every single person doing education research around the world has ethics that are as pure as the driven snow,” Plucker said. “[But] the law of averages tells us there’s something out there.”

Educate Massachusetts's curator insight, August 22, 2:49 PM

Data is significant yet can be deceptive.  We are developing human potential and there are aspects where data is not as reliable to success as we portray.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 22, 6:32 PM

The concept of replication has never made sense to me. We should be reproducing and reconstructing. Reproducing and reconstructing are not about identical. They are about checking more data against the original data collected. One can never replicate/duplicate the same situation so it is about similarities rather than exactness.

 

@ivon_ehd1

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, Today, 11:42 AM

This article is about the low value placed on replication studies. It does not call into question all education research! I'd like to see how this replication issue compares to other social sciences before dismissing all ed research!

5 Easy Steps for Content Chunking in E-learning

5 Easy Steps for Content Chunking in E-learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

What is content chunking?

Content chunking is a method of presenting information by splitting it into small pieces or “chunks”. A chunk of information is one that is self-contained and can be understood without further explanation. (Source: Chunking)

Why is content chunked?

In eLearning, computer screens and other electronic devices limit the view of long documents. There is a need for concise chunks of information to deliver effective learning in precise time. Chunking is done to:

* Make reading and understanding faster and easier
* Help learners easily assimilate new information
* Help learners form mind maps and improve recall
* Give bite-sized information to learners
* Make learning easy and manageable
