5 Practical Learning Tips Based On How People Do--And Don't--Learn

5 Practical Learning Tips Based On How People Do--And Don't--Learn | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

"There has been a large body of work in neuroscience, psychology, and related fields offering more and more insight into how we learn.

Below are five of the top tips from Barbara Oakley, Professor of Engineering at Oakland University, who has faced her own learning challenges (failing middle and high school math and science classes), and has made a study of the latest research on learning. She is also offering a free online course, Learning How to Learn, which starts August 1 on the Coursera platform with co-instructor, Prof. Terrence Sejnowski, a computational neuroscientist at UC San Diego and the Salk Institute."

Are you interested in learning how to learn? This post provides 5 tips that may help you.

1. Get enough sleep to de-toxify your brain

2. Outwit procrastination with the Pomodoro technique

3. Use spaced repetition to remember key facts

4. Use recall rather than re-reading to see whether you’ve learned the content

5. Vary learning/studying environment

Each of these is explained in more detail in the post.

As teachers we are also learners, and it is never too late to become better at learning. Sharing these five tips with our students may help them become better learners. And if this is a topic of interest to you, consider checking out the Coursera course Learning How to Learn that will begin on August 1st.

What does neurology tell us about education? This post looks at 25 discoveries over the last 25 years. Some may be new to you and remember this is a field that is changing rapidly.

Below are a few of the discoveries that are covered.

* Brain plasticity - "...the brain changes constantly as a result of learning, and remains ‘plastic’ throughout life."

* "The brain’s response to reward is influenced by expectations and uncertainty."

* "Learning involves both focused attention and peripheral attention."

For more information on these discoveries and 22 additional click through to the post. You might want to check out the 3D interactive brain that explores learning strategies. It is located at http://www.opencolleges.edu.au/informed/learning-strategies/

Some of them:

- Brain plasticity

- The discovery of mirror neurons

- Both nature and nurture affect the learning brain

- Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences- The brain’s response to reward is influenced by expectations and uncertainty- The brain has mechanisms for self-regulation- Education is a powerful form of cognitive enhancement- Neuroscience informs adaptive learning technology- Dyslexia and other learning disorders- Social and emotional intelligence- The brain thrives on variety- Memorization and learning are not the same thing- Metacognition enhances learning- The brain is a parallel processor.- “Cells that fire together wire together.”etc
