Learning languages a way out of crisis, says Vassiliou

Learning languages a way out of crisis, says Vassiliou | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The latest European Commission figures show that in 2011 just 42% of European 15-year-olds were competent in their first foreign language, despite often having learned it from seven years of age. Furthermore, the figure differed hugely across different EU countries, with 82% for Sweden and just 9% for Britain. [...] The commissioner also spoke of the position of English as the EU’s lingua franca - once an “elephant in the room” in Brussels - but added that learning it should not come at the expense of other languages.

“While English may be seen as a ‘basic skill’ today … I am still absolutely convinced that it is more and more the knowledge of other languages that can make the difference in getting a job and progressing in one’s career,” she said.

4 Neurosystems Of Learning

4 Neurosystems Of Learning | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Understanding how the brain actually learns has been a a scientific challenge for millennia.

 

Based on recent advances in neuroscience and its application to learning, there is an emerging model of how the brain learns and it is unlike anything that was expected. It is suggested that the brain does not have one learning system but rather four integrated systems–each with its own unique memory pattern and accompaniments.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 16, 7:26 PM

Mark Treadwell has developed a framework entitled “Learning: How the Brain Learns."


4 Neurosystems Of Learning

  1. Acquisition of and making sense of sensory data
  2. Rote Learning (learning off-by-heart), sequencing  – episodic memory (neural-centric)
  3. Ideas & Concept Development – semantic memory (astrocytic-centric)
  4. Creativity & the ‘Imagination’ (brainwave-centric)
