"Where students of all ages retain the kindergarten enthusiasm....[for] the joy of learning".... Now that is what I hope for in my students everyday. That joy and enthusiasm. Now we know this type of joyful, playful atmosphere enables better imprinting of information into accessible memories. Let's get back to kindergarten thinking!

LSE Learning Technology and Innovation's curator insight, August 1, 5:49 AM

Learning that is rewarding is also learning that's more effective. The challenge lies in producing engaging pedagogies which promote discovery and the joys of learning; something that can be quite challenging in an increasingly metrics driven sector

If students are stressed out, the information cannot get in.


The factors that have been found to affect this comfort level such as self-confidence, trust and positive feelings for teachers, and supportive classroom and school communities are directly related to the state of mind compatible with the most successful learning, remembering, and higher-order thinking

Could video games measure skills that tests can’t capture?

Could video games measure skills that tests can’t capture? | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Imagine you’re playing a computer game that asks you to design a poster for the school fair. You’re fiddling with fonts, changing background colors and deciding what activity to feature: Will a basketball toss appeal to more people than a pie bake-off?

Then, animal characters — maybe a panda or an ostrich — offer feedback on your design. You can choose whether to hear a compliment or a complaint: “The words are overlapping too much,” or, “I like that you put in the dates.”

 

 

“They’re not just measures of what the student already knows, but attempts to measure whether they are prepared to continue learning when they’re no longer told exactly what to do.”

 

You can use their critiques as guides to help you revise your poster. Finally, you get to see how many tickets your poster sold.

Today we  are told that each student should receive personalized learning opportunities. This post provides a look at ten types of learners you may find in your classroom (on or offline). By understanding the type of learners you will be able to design more effective lessons (and also personalize them to the best of your ability.
