Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’ | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
The famed psychologist explains why one is not the other though they are often confused.

 

1.       Individualize your teaching as much as possible. Instead of “one size fits all,” learn as much as you can about each student, and teach each person in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively. Of course this is easier to accomplish with smaller classes. But ‘apps’ make it possible to individualize for everyone.

Howard Gardner asks teachers to Drop the term “styles.” It will confuse others and it won’t help either you or your students.

Shafali Anand's comment, October 25, 2013 3:09 AM
Of course they aren't. They are the raw material that come together and result in learning styles. I've got to read this :)
Shafali Anand's comment, October 25, 2013 3:18 AM
Read it. I've always found Gardner's MI theory interesting - because it's a great equalizer - when I was growing up logical-mathematical intelligence (in Gardner's terminology) was given the highest importance - art, music, sports etc. were considered talents/gifts - and not intelligences. Gardner made them more respectable by calling them intelligences. This is why I too can call myself intelligent today - visually and spatially intelligent. Ahem!

Cognitive And Affective Variables That Should Rule Education

Cognitive And Affective Variables That Should Rule Education | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
Education must focus on the quality of teaching and learning.

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, January 1, 2013 12:24 PM

Cognitive Variables

Metacognition as knowledge of ways of thinking, thought structures and the capacity to control and modify cognitive learning processes.Systematized general and specific knowledge.Understanding the languages of science and the humanities.Retention of knowledge.Transfer of knowledge: transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches.Transfer of skills: practical application of knowledge.Capacity for generalization and discrimination of contents.Capacity for symbolic and abstract exchange.Capacity to evaluate results.Capacity to develop concepts and categories.Development of imagination to simulate objects and processes.Capacity to formulate problems and take decisions to solve them.Capacity to search for and process information.Capacity to evaluate information to reduce uncertainty.Knowledge of the value of making mistakes as an aid to rectification.Capacity to grasp the whole and act on the parts.

Affective Variables

Development of thought and ethical behavior.Full and responsible exercise of human rights.Democratic cooperative behavior.Simultaneous exercise of rights and obligations for the practice of freedom.Multicultural, intercultural and international understanding.Development of aesthetic sensitivity.Critical sense and spirit of dialogue with full respect for the ideas of others.Flexibility and tolerance.Development of self-criticism.Ability to listen.Fostering sharing attitudes.Capacity to compete with oneself and not with others.To permanently strive to be free from mental and social prejudices.Motivation to learn and cultivation of learning habits.Development of attitudes conducive to creativity and innovation.Capacity for risk-taking and accepting responsibility for learning.Fostering the inquiring spirit to keep curiosity alive.Moderation of superfluous elements.Learning for enterprise: sense of enterprise and initiative.Learning to care: sense of living in harmony with nature and fellow human beings.Learning to carry on learning: sense of living in harmony with knowledge.

These are variables for the «learning persons» i.e. for students and professors. The selective sample of quality variables drawn from the cognitive and affective areas presup­poses the condition of diversification which any educational institution must exhibit in order to comply with the criteria which identify learning which embraces the different areas of thought and action.

All quality variables must be stimulated from the earliest pre-school age.  Other­wise it is a very difficult, almost impossible, task for the university. However, at any age, the world of knowledge and of feeling is always open to exploration and individual growth. If this has not been achieved at the previous levels of the education system or it has not been attempted, it is never too late to learn, and in no event should this be an ex­cuse for the university institution not to fulfill its obligations. In short, what is required is schools and universities prepared to take risks, which will offer a formative education which transcends the mere acquisition of knowledge. That is to say, educational institutions that turns the subject transmitted into a freely available, spiritually fecund element which stimulates the development of thought and action.

[1] This list of learning variables is based in my research on cultural learning presented in my book, The Psychosocial and Cultural Nature of Education  (2004). Boston: Pearson.

Content Curation - Best Practices

 

Content curation has become a hot topic in 2012.

 

Corrine Weisgerber, an associate professor at St. Edwards University, has an excellent presentation on content curation.

 

She differentiates content curation from content aggregation--content aggregation can be automated but content curation requires the human touch for finding, evaluating and contextualizing information.

Five ways to stop online cheating | On Teaching Online

Five ways to stop online cheating | On Teaching Online | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

I had the chance to talk with a class of college undergraduates (real, live people in an actual classroom) a few weeks ago and one of the topics that came up made me re-examine a common problem for online teachers– cheating.

 

Academic cheating is nothing new but the impact it has on online education seems easier, and more widespread, than in face-to-face classrooms. This is a gut feeling, and the research suggests cheating and plagiarism are widespread in every educational environment, at any age, across every culture.

 

(Those of us in direct, live contact with smiling students are fooling ourselves to think classroom cheating is less prevalent, or that we can somehow catch evil-doers more easily in person.) I’ve written about ways to prevent online cheating here at On Teaching Online before, here.

How Online Innovators Are Disrupting Education - Jason Orgill and Douglas Hervey - Harvard Business Review

How Online Innovators Are Disrupting Education - Jason Orgill and Douglas Hervey - Harvard Business Review | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
"Four years ago Harvard Business School Professor Clayton Christensen predicted that online education would take off slowly and then hit everyone by surprise: the S-curve effect. And indeed, while it initially grew slowly, online education has exploded over the past several years. According to the 2010 Sloan Survey of Online Learning, approximately 5.6 million students took at least one web-based class during the fall 2009 semester, which marked a 21% growth from the previous year. That's up from 45,000 in 2000 and experts predict that online education could reach 14 million in 2014."

2 New Skills Needed For Today: Discard and Disregard

2 New Skills Needed For Today: Discard and Disregard | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

I’ve enjoyed getting to know (via my twitter PLN) and interact with a couple of individuals who are diligent curators of all information related to educational technology:

 

Nour Alkhalidy (@MissNoor28)
Gust Mees (@knolinfos) http://www.scoop.it/u/webwizard

 

Most recently (pic above) I mentioned to Gust that I thought two important new skills were to “disregard and discard”. He asked me to explain further…here goes.

 

INFORMATION OVERLOAD
The increase of social media, the explosion of Web2.0 technologies and their inclusion in search engine returns means you get more than “web sites” and tens of thousands of returns for any search.
A current Google search for “Mobile Learning” (in quotes) brings back 3,710,000 returns.

 

Even refining the search to “mobile learning instructional design” returns 548,000 returns.

 

Gust MEES (@knolinfos): stay tuned, I am preparing a new blog "Learning 2 Learn in 21st Century-The Practice", coming soon... That blog will be part also to my blog "How-To prepare for giving a quality course"

How to Develop 5 Critical Thinking Types - Forbes

How to Develop 5 Critical Thinking Types - Forbes | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

Great leaders think strategically. They can understand and appreciate the current state as well as see possibilities.

 

- Critical thinking is the mental process of objectively analyzing a situation by gathering information from all possible sources, and then evaluating both the tangible and intangible aspects, as well as the implications of any course of action.

 
- Implementation thinking is the ability to organize ideas and plans in a way that they will be effectively carried out.


- Conceptual thinking consists of the ability to find connections or patterns between abstract ideas and then piece them together to form a complete picture.


- Innovative thinking involves generating new ideas or new ways of approaching things to create possibilities and opportunities. 


- Intuitive thinking is the ability to take what you may sense or perceive to be true and, without knowledge or evidence, appropriately factor it in to the final decision.

"Experiential learning using open source is fraught with opportunities for disaster.

Open source is unfamiliar ground for professors. Not the software, which is well-known at this point. But professors aren't accustomed to open development. They treat open source projects like busy work or an easy way to assign homework. Participating in FOSS projects takes work and time, maybe even six months, which is a big commitment for someone who wants to use it in a one-semester course. A student being sent in to a project without involvement from a professor is a recipe for failure."
