9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom

9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Creativity as changing tool | Scoop.it

While neuroscience hasn’t yet radically changed the way we think about teaching and learning, it is helping to shape educational policies and influencing new ways of implementing technology, improving special education, and streamlining day-to-day interactions between teachers and students. While there is still a long way to go before we truly understand the science of learning and how to use those findings in the real world classroom, it’s important to highlight some of the key ways that neuroscience is changing the classroom of today for the better.

Computer games can dramatically boost children's exam results

Computer games can dramatically boost children's exam results | Creativity as changing tool | Scoop.it

Research by Yardleys School, a top state secondary in Birmingham, compared results among children who accessed games produced by the Doncaster education company i-education.

 

Teachers said the use of the system – employed by some 900 primary and secondary schools – promoted “stealth learning”, with children unwittingly picking up key skills while being engrossed in computer games.

 

It emerged that 70 per cent of regular users exceeded pre-set GCSE targets in maths compared with just 40 per cent of other pupils.

 

“It’s giving students the opportunity to continue their learning outside of lessons. Students are still playing football and having fun but they are also heavily engaged in continuing their learning outside of school.”

Reinventing Education To Teach Creativity And Entrepreneurship

Reinventing Education To Teach Creativity And Entrepreneurship | Creativity as changing tool | Scoop.it
As you read this, students all over the country are sitting for state standardized exams. Schools spend up to 40% of the year on test prep, so that, shall we say, no child is left behind.

 

Schools used to be gatekeepers of knowledge, and memorization was key to success. Thus, we measured students’ abilities to regurgitate facts and formulas. Not anymore.

 

As Seth Godin writes, “If there’s information that can be recorded, widespread digital access now means that just about anyone can look it up.

 

We don’t need a human being standing next to us to lecture us on how to find the square root of a number.”

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have | Creativity as changing tool | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway.

 

I don't agree that every teacher must need to be able to do all 33.  But I do feel it is important to be able to identify these skills when other teachers do it.  We should also be able to have conversations about each of these skills to decide if they are appropriate for our classes/units/single lesson plans.

The ART Of Collaboration (Collaborative Behaviours)

The ART Of Collaboration (Collaborative Behaviours) | Creativity as changing tool | Scoop.it
If people are given the right tools and the right environment, will they spontaneously collaborate and share knowledge? Why do some people find it difficult to share and collaborate? Would incentives and rewards make a difference?

 

Collaboration in the workplace is now high on the priority list of many organisations seeking to leverage social technologies to free-up knowledge and provide opportunities for co-creation, co-production and innovation.

 

Gust MEES: I was one of the TOP10 Knol authors (Google Knol discontinued its service as on May 1, 2012) and I was involved in a lot of collaborative articles with multicultural authors and it was a very positive experience... I hope one day having the same opportunity back again on WordPress now...

Global Learning: Upgrading Our Global Skills for Lifelong Learning

Global Learning: Upgrading Our Global Skills for Lifelong Learning | Creativity as changing tool | Scoop.it
Anthony Jackson is vice president for education at Asia Society.

 

"Skills have become the global currency of the 21st century. Without proper investment in skills, people languish on the margins of society, technological progress does not translate into economic growth, and countries can no longer compete in an increasingly knowledge-based global society." Mr. Angel Guerria, Secretary-General, OECD


The new OECD Skills Strategy released in May shows that we need to put a premium on skills-oriented learning throughout life. Those in the workforce must upgrade and maintain skills to meet the changing needs of society. Employers are advised not only to invest in learning, but also create a culture that fosters it. In short, society needs to cultivate lifelong learners.

Tamra Dollar's curator insight, July 20, 2013 7:21 PM

Gamed based learning is a powerful tool for teaching! As a data nerd, I have seen first hand the achievement scores of students who game vs. don't game. This is not a scientific study, but is based on seeing scores skyrocket from students who are accused of "doing nothing" in school and yet are avid gamers. Hmmm.
