Lectures Aren't Just Boring, They're Ineffective, Too, Study Finds

Lectures Aren't Just Boring, They're Ineffective, Too, Study Finds | Mind Brain and Education Science | Scoop.it

Are your lectures droning on? Change it up every 10 minutes with more active teaching techniques and more students will succeed, researchers say. A new study finds that undergraduate students in classes with traditional stand-and-deliver lectures are 1.5 times more likely to fail than students in classes that use more stimulating, so-called active learning methods.

Lisa Carey's insight:

Who has the most "air-time" in a classroom?  The teacher or the students?  We learn by doing.

I agree. If we stick with one mode it gets boring. Mixing approaches helps the teaching and learning.

Tony Parkin's curator insight, May 16, 2014 3:13 AM

It would be interesting to know if this has changed over time?

Monica MIRZA's curator insight, May 16, 2014 12:04 PM

What is dyslexia? - Kelli Sandman-Hurley

What is dyslexia? - Kelli Sandman-Hurley | Mind Brain and Education Science | Scoop.it
Dyslexia affects up to 1 in 5 people, but the experience of dyslexia isn't always the same. This difficulty in processing language exists along a spectrum -- one that doesn't necessarily fit with labels like "normal" and "defective." Kelli Sandman-Hurley urges us to think again about dyslexic brain function and to celebrate the neurodiversity of the human brain.
Lisa Carey's insight:

Great neurological explaination of dyslexia that dispells common myths about the disorder and links it to the concept of neurodiversity.
