Androgogy and pedagogy are different. Adults are able to know why they want to learn something or why they are expected to learn something. Can we say the same thing for 6 year olds?

When students use their bodies in the learning process, it can have a big effect, even if it seems silly or unconnected to the learning goal at hand. Researchers have found that when students use their bodies while doing mathematical storytelling (like with word problems, for example), it changes the way they think about math. “We understand language in a richer, fuller way if we can connect it to the actions we perform,” said Sian Beilock, professor of psychology at the University of Chicago.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 19, 2:27 PM

There are several topics cover d in this article. The first is the use of movement to augment learning. This is not a new idea as many foreign language teachers have been using and recommending TPR - Total Physical Response as a p highly effective teaching strategy.  

 

The second point is about the distracting nature of highly decorated rooms. In my experience, the walls need to teach.  I do agree that decorations unrelated to content are irrelevant and distracting to learning.  We do not need photos of skateboarders or beaches that encourage daydreaming.  However, decorations that review content already taught or link concents within the content are highly effective learning strategies.  Visual cues can help spiral learning.  I had teachers who created a visual content organizer and added visuals as they progressed through the year.

 

the third point is about writing as a means to reduce test anxiety.

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn | Coaching and educational leadership | Scoop.it
Spend more time teaching learning skills. Klemm recommends memory tricks like mnemonic devices, and visualizing ideas as complex images, to help students expand their working memory. “If they knew these things, they wouldn’t have to work so hard and school might even become fun,” Klemm said. “Once students start reflecting and become more self-aware, they have the opportunity to become better students.”

“Working memory gets overloaded,” Kleem said. “Most people can only hold four independent ideas in working memory.” But if images are used to represent a constellation of ideas, people can remember much more. Words are hard to remember, but images stick with people. “It’s like a zip file,” Klemm said. “This is a way to get your working memory to carry more.”

Moving Beyond "Sit’n’Git" - other models of teacher PD

I often wonder if what we see as teaching at professional learning events would be acceptable in a high school classroom. If the purpose of professional development (Pro-D) is professional learning, then what is our evidence that learning does, in fact, occur? Are we using effective teaching practices in Pro-D?

a deep respect for teachers and their academic accomplishments


Fifty years ago, both South Korea and Finland had terrible education systems. Finland was at risk of becoming the economic stepchild of Europe. South Korea was ravaged by civil war. Yet over the past half century, both South Korea and Finland have turned their schools around — and now both countries are hailed internationally for their extremely high educational outcomes. What can other countries learn from these two successful, but diametrically opposed, educational models? Here’s an overview of what South Korea and Finland are doing right.


The Korean model: Grit and hard, hard, hard work.

The Finnish model: Extracurricular choice, intrinsic motivation

Ten Disciplines of a Learner: Learning vs Mastery

Ten Disciplines of a Learner: Learning vs Mastery | Coaching and educational leadership | Scoop.it

Ten Disciplines of a Learner
We decided to continue the conversation on this topic at a faculty meeting. Several meetings later we had a new report card. We decided to give two grades and average them—one for “Learning,” the other for “Mastery.”

Sara might get an “F” in mastery and an “A” in learning, culminating in a “C” for the course. To be rigorous we picked ten observable behaviors and named them “Disciplines of a Learner:”

1.     Asks questions

2.     Builds on other people’s ideas

3.     Uses mistakes as learning opportunities

4.     Takes criticism constructively

5.     Speaks up

6.     Welcomes a challenge

7.     Takes risks

8.     Listens with an openness to change

9.     Perseveres in tasks

10.   Decides when to lead and when to follow.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 22, 2:07 PM

Whether in school or the work place, we talk about measurable goals and objectives but most of us struggle to define how those goals or objectives might be measured. Now that's often because the goals and objectives aren't actually measurable, but it's mostly because we don't think through what we're actually asking students or employees to accomplish.  For students, success and progress can be measured when they see "that [their] learning, not [their] intelligence" matters. For  employees, success and progress can be measured in much the same way.

In Learning, Context Matters

In Learning, Context Matters | Coaching and educational leadership | Scoop.it

by Jackie Gerstein



The Need for Context

Learning facts and knowledge about a content area topic is an important prerequisite to understanding that topic and then developing expertise. The key to this understanding is providing a context for the facts. The context becomes the glue to increase the stickiness, the longevity of long term memory of those facts. This is especially true for abstract concepts. These concepts need something concrete with which to attach.
