Eric Mazur on new interactive teaching techniques

Eric Mazur on new interactive teaching techniques | Business Tech | Scoop.it

Mazur’s reinvention of the course drops the lecture model and deeply engages students in the learning/teaching endeavor. It starts from his view of education as a two-step process: information transfer, and then making sense of and assimilating that information. “In the standard approach, the emphasis in class is on the first, and the second is left to the student on his or her own, outside of the classroom,” he says. “If you think about this rationally, you have to flip that, and put the first one outside the classroom, and the second inside.

Not necessarily "new", but good to hear the emphasis on the learning process and student application of knowledge.

'Eric Mazur says learning interests him far more than teaching, and he encourages a shift from "teaching" to "helping students learn.'

dawsonloane's curator insight, April 25, 2014 9:28 AM

I heard Eric Mazur in Manchester a couple of years ago talking about learning and I was impressed. This article is about his take on what some people call the 'flipped classroom'.

The lesson here is simply don't be overwhelmed by the volume of activity.  Narrow your focus, define your audience as tightly as possible, talk to them in terms relevant to their lives and be creative.

Wilfred Rubens's curator insight, May 10, 2014 8:18 AM

Google bemoeit zich steeds intensiever met het onderwijs. Nu komen ze met Google Classroom. Dit artikel in THE Journal spreekt zelfs van een gratis elektronische leeromgeving. Die typering lijkt me niet terecht, als je naar de functionaliteit kijkt. Als ik het goed begrijp faciliteert Google vooral de workflow rond het geven, maken, inleveren, becommentariëren en beoordelen van opdrachten. Daarbij is sprake van een koppeling met Google Docs. Als je uitgaat van een digitale leer- en werkomgeving op basis van een portaalomgeving, dan kan deze toepassing daar een zinvol onderdeel van zijn. We moeten ons daarbij wel realiseren dat we a) nog afhankelijker worden van Google, b) er nog steeds issues zijn rond eigenaarschap van data, privacy en veiligheid, en c) Google een historie heeft als het gaat om het lanceren maar ook weer om zeep helpen van applicaties (denk aan Google Reader of Google Waves). En waarom kiezen bedrijven als Google vaak voor traditionele namen voor hun producten (denk ook aan het schoolbord).

12 Tips That Got Me Using Evernote Again

12 Tips That Got Me Using Evernote Again | Business Tech | Scoop.it

"As I have added Evernote back into my routine, I find myself using it every day.

From the quick capture of ideas and notes, to the collection of reference material and documents, Evernote is my main information library.

The ability to access my notes from anywhere is a powerful capability that saves time and makes me more productive.

If you have moved away from Evernote or haven’t explored its full potential, I recommend trying these tips today."

On the info-tools side of infotention, I resisted Evernote for years, but now find it indispensible. I keep mailing lists, info on my classes, clip items for my hobbies, forward emails confirming online orders (email to evernote is most useful if you add your evernote email address to your address book)

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 31, 2014 12:17 PM

I've been using Evernote as part of my daily routine for the past 3 years, and couldn't do without it. Apart from the 12 (excellent) tips in the article, I've found the scheduler very useful for prompting actions - e.g. to write a blog post on a note I've written or a webclip that I've captured; the iPad version allows me to scan-in business cards, where the contact name is  auto-checked against LinkedIn, and I've configured the Evernote options such that any Google Search I perform automatically displays results from my Evernote notebooks next to the Google search results.

 

If you've never used Evernote - give it a try and follow some of the 12 tips given in this article.

David McGavock's curator insight, June 8, 2014 8:24 PM

Evernote is the bomb. I used the free version for years but use it so much that I decided to support them with my $$. I love the way it synchronizes my notes between devices. Easy sharing also.
