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

Your brain on ADHD

Up to 11 percent of school-age children and 4 percent of adults are estimated to have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. About 70 percent of those kids (and an unknown but growing number of adults) take medication for it. Scientists don’t know exactly what ADHD is — or why certain drugs improve its symptoms — but most research suggests that it causes signaling problems in the brain. ADHD medications are thought to improve those brain signals.
