Free Technology for Teachers: The Periodic Table of Comic Books

Free Technology for Teachers: The Periodic Table of Comic Books | Creative teaching and learning | Scoop.it

The Periodic Table of Comic Books is a project of the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky. The idea is that for every element in the Periodic Table of Elements there is a comic book reference. Clicking on an element in the periodic table displayed on the homepage will take visitors to a list and images of comic book references to that particular element. After looking at the comic book reference if visitors want more information about a particular element they can find it by using the provided link to Web Elements.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 25, 10:41 PM

How do we learn? This post explores this issue and provides some suggstions on some best practices for studying. 

The author of the post provides three "take-aways" from the book.

* "Forgetting isn't always bad."

* "The brain is a foraging learner."

* "We can be tactical in our learning."

A number of suggestions on best ways to study are also included.

* Rather than cramming study material for a shorter period of time everyday. You will retain more.

* Studying in different locations may be beneficial.

* Taking breaks after intense studying is good. It provides a break for your brain. This is called diffuse learning.

* Rather than rereading material quiz yourself on it to see how much you recall.

Additional suggestions are included in the post and there is more information. 

If this is an area of interest to you Coursera will be running another session of Learning How to Learn, beginning in early October. The course is free unless you want to receive a Certificate. I can vouch for this course as I am currently enrolled and at some point in the near future I will share more information about it. To learn more about the course go to Learning How to Learn

El Aprendizaje Autodirigido, donde los alumnos deciden cómo y qué aprender es considerado una quimera por los autores de un informe recientemente publicado. Los estudiantes pueden acceder a la información pero carecen de algunas habilidades imprescindibles. Muy interesante.
