Rubrics

Rubrics | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
I have recently been shocked at the fact that educators don't really see the need for a rubric. They either find them too specific or too vague. But, I am not really sure they are seeing the big pi...

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 7, 2014 11:04 PM

Rubrics do not provide a quantitative measure and about the quality of learning. I think this proves challenging at times for teachers and students. I used them and worked diligently allowing rubrics to guide assessment practice. They demonstrated progress over time. I tweaked them regularly and regularly checked them against curricula. Students used them as guides in their learning.

Cerebro y aprendizaje: Potenciacion a largo plazo (PLP)

Muchas partes del cerebro están involucradas en el proceso de aprendizaje, algunas en aspectos similares del aprender y otras controlando partes específicas. Cada área del cerebro se desarrolla durante un curso de tiempo que varía de dos o tres años hasta ocho años. En neurociencia, la potenciación a largo plazo (long-term potentiation, o LTP en inglés) es una intensificación duradera en la transmisión de señales entre dos neuronas que resulta de la estimulación sincrónica de ambas. Es uno de los varios fenómenos que subyacen a la plasticidad sináptica, la capacidad de la sinapsis química de cambiar su fuerza. Puesto que se piensa que los recuerdos están codificados por modificaciones de la fuerza sináptica, se considera ampliamente al LTP como uno de los mecanismos celulares principales que subyace al aprendizaje y la memoria.
