MOOCs, MIT and Magic

MOOCs, MIT and Magic | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The first session at the LINC conference was on four perspectives on MOOCs. There were four speakers before the coffee break, then the four speakers formed a panel to respond to questions from the audience after the coffee break. All four presentations are available in full from here, so I will provide a very brief summary of the main points made by each presenter. The session presenters were introduced by Richard Larson, Director of LINC. - See more at: http://www.tonybates.ca/2013/06/26/moocs-mit-and-magic/#sthash.O7G7oTYE.dpuf

Education, the Brain and Common Core State Standards

Education, the Brain and Common Core State Standards | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Understanding even the basics of how the brain learns -- how people perceive, process and remember information -- can help teachers and students successfully meet the requirements of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This initiative aims to establish a relatively standardized knowledge base among all students, alleviating the background knowledge gap. It's designed to promote critical, divergent thinking, equipping students with information relevant to the real world and the ability to use it.

 

Sounds great. But what does that really mean, in practice, for teachers? How do you teach someone to think critically?

 

Dr. Mariale Hardiman, co-founder and director of the Johns Hopkins University School of Education's Neuro-Education Initiative, recommends starting at the top: with the brain. "It seems rather obvious -- after all, learning does occur in the brain, but all teaching does not result in learning, so while all learning is brain-based, all teaching is not," clarifies Hardiman. The Brain-Targeted Teaching Model, developed by Hardiman, organizes key educational theories into a single framework, combining neuroscience research with teachers' and students' feedback.
