Why Professors Shouldn’t Ban Smartphones

Why Professors Shouldn’t Ban Smartphones | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

"As smartphones have become more common, educators have struggled with the question of what to do with smartphones in the classroom. For K-12 educators, the answer has been to ban smartphones from the classroom completely."

A study conducted by researchers in Singapore found that undergraduate students who were allowed to keep their phones with them actually scored better on tasks that measured their cognitive functioning. Even when they weren’t allowed to use their phones, students who were allowed to keep their phones in their pockets performed better than students whose phones were confiscated. 

As teachers, we need to take into account in which moments it is necessary to use the cell phones within the classrooms and which situations is essential confiscate them. Furthermore, we need to consider the age of the students and the subject that we are teaching.

The Feynman Technique for learning | #LEARNing2LEARN

The Feynman Technique  for learning | #LEARNing2LEARN | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
The Feynman Technique is perfect for learning a new idea, understanding an existing idea better, remembering an idea, or studying for a test. The Feynman Technique is a mental model that was coined by Nobel-prize winning physicist Richard Feynman. Known as the "Great Explainer," Feynman was revered for his ability to clearly illustrate dense topics…

Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, May 5, 10:39 AM
By attempting to explain a concept in simple terms, you’ll quickly see where you have a good understanding of that concept. You’ll also be able to instantly pinpoint your problem areas, because they’ll be the areas where you either get stuck or where you end up resorting to using complex language and terminology. In addition to helping you pinpoint those problem areas in the concept you’re trying to learn, the Feynman Technique gives you a quick, efficient way to shore up those areas using targeted learning. It’s a simple technique, but it’ll help you study much more efficiently once you put into action. How to Use the Feynman Technique: Step 1: Grab a sheet of paper and write the name of the concept at the top. You can use pretty much any concept or idea – even though the technique is named after Feynman, it’s not limited solely to math and science. Step 2: Explain the concept in your own words as if you were teaching it to someone else. Focus on using plain, simple language. Don’t limit your explanation to a simple definition or a broad overview; challenge yourself to work through an example or two as well to ensure you can put the concept into action. Step 3: Review your explanation and identify the areas where you didn’t know something or where you feel your explanation is shaky. Once you’ve pinpointed them, go back to the source material, your notes, or any examples you can find in order to shore up your understanding. Step 4: If there are any areas in your explanation where you’ve used lots of technical terms or complex language, challenge yourself to re-write these sections in simpler terms. Make sure your explanation could be understood by someone without the knowledge base you believe you already have. Step 5: think like a child; while you’re working through the Feynman Technique for any given concept, it can be useful to pretend that you’re explaining that concept to a child. Doing this will boost your own understanding for one simple reason; a kid is probably going ask why? Why does that formula work? How can you know it`ll always work? While older people often become accustomed to taking things at face value, kids are naturally curious. They’re quick to point out their confusion. This is a great mindset to adopt.

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

Metacognition, simply put, is the process of thinking about thinking. It is important in every aspect of school and life, since it involves self-reflection on one’s current position, future goals, potential actions and strategies, and results. At its core, it is a basic survival strategy, and has been shown to be present even in rats.

We allow extra time each period so teachers can talk about thinking process in their content area and students can think about thinking. It can improve the application of what they are studying, which provides deeper learning.

I understand why teachers ban phones or collect them. I get it. But I also know that banning phones can, in fact, limit student learning. Sure, there is the risk they'll spend more time playing a game or texting their friends. On the other hand, if you make the digital connections sufficiently engaging, they'll be texting or tweeting to tell their friends what a great class it's been and maybe even something about what they learned!

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.
