9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Edudemic

9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Edudemic | designiddl | 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.

How to get students to participate in Online Discussions…

How to get students to participate in Online Discussions… | designiddl | Scoop.it

Students’ participation in online discussions is central in online learning courses as it contributes to a participative and meaningful instruction where learners build their knowledge in a constructive way with instructors, colleagues, informal sources and by reflecting upon the process.

Debbie Morrison is posting a triplet series on how to create effective discussions in an online learning environment. In part I she presents components which make online discussions effective, namely:

 

1.  A solid course design 

2.  Guidelines and expectations for students  

3.  Well constructed topics/questions

4.  The existence of a skilled facilitator or moderator

5.  An assessment component

Reducing Instructor Workload in Discussion Forums | Faculty Focus

Reducing Instructor Workload in Discussion Forums | Faculty Focus | designiddl | Scoop.it

Tips for reducing instructor workload in discussion forums:

- You don’t have to be an active participant in every discussion. 

- Have students summarize the discussions. 

- Grade discussion facilitators rather than each student. 

- Have students collaborate in small group forums to craft a single post that they will share with the entire class.

Five Reasons Getting Students to Talk is Worth the Effort | Faculty Focus

Five Reasons Getting Students to Talk is Worth the Effort | Faculty Focus | designiddl | Scoop.it

It may seem odd but getting students to talk is a positive pedagogical strategy, even though their discourse is a novice’s discourse.

Professor Maryellen Weimer describes 5 reasons to prove that students talking is worth the effort:

1- Students learn content when they talk about it.

2- Talking lets students learn from each other.

3- Talking gives students the opportunity to practice using the language of the discipline.

4- Talking connects students with the content. 

5-Talking connects students with each other.

 

It’s the task of the teacher to face the challenge, promote and support students, for example, by adding form and substance to the discussions.

Using Online Icebreakers to Promote Student/Teacher Interaction

Using Online Icebreakers to Promote Student/Teacher Interaction | designiddl | Scoop.it

"In an online environment, human interaction does not just happen naturally. Your online students need a way to get to know you, the instructor, and others. There are several ways to encourage your students to interact with each other. The idea is to be creative and set several guidelines for students to follow in order to stimulate asynchronous discussions." 

 

You’ll find here a bunch of techniques and suggestions. Save them for future use.
