Δεν υπάρχει μόνον ένα αλλά πολλά είδη νοημοσύνης. Και όπως δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε δύο ανθρώπους με πανομοιότυπα δακτυλικά αποτυπώματα, έτσι δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε και δύο ανθρώπους με τον ίδιο συνδυασμό απ αυτά τα είδη νοημοσύνης!

As we’ve studied the educational process, it’s become clear that students learn in a variety of ways and that no single approach is always successful in a classroom. What makes complete sense to one student may sound like gibberish to another. Competency-based or “personalized” learning allows students to master skills at their own pace with …

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.

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies by Ingfei Chen @bencareynyt

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies by Ingfei Chen @bencareynyt | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

 his new book, “How We Learn: The Surprising Truth about When, Where, and Why It Happens,” author Benedict Carey informs us that “most of our instincts about learning are misplaced, incomplete, or flat wrong” and “rooted more in superstition than in science.”The traditional advice on learning has been to “study hard,” in a quiet place and with the same routine, yet that doesn’t say much about what to specifically do. But pupils today can change the way they study to exploit the brain’s quirky learning processes, using the strategies revealed by memory and learning research. While that science is still maturing, “it’s at a place now where it can give you a specific tactical plan,” Carey said. Students can tailor their preparation with techniques targeting different kinds of content or skills, and manage their schedule to optimize their time. “That’s a powerful thing, because we go through our whole lives never knowing that,” he said."

Lou Salza's curator insight, August 26, 12:21 PM

Schools and schooling have changed too little over the years compared to the way kids actually learn and the way the marketplace now operates. What Carey’s Book offers is encouragement to young people to find their way—(not ours!) and acquire the tools that will help them succeed in the new digital world in which they are immersed ( not the world that most teachers and school administrators succeeded in!).

And let’s be clear: this is not about getting higher GPAs and scoring higher on the SAT or the ACT.  It is about  learning and achieving using tools that didn’t exist ten years ago in order to succeed at jobs that won’t exist for another ten years. ---Lou  

 

Excerpts: 

For example:

– Breaking up and spacing out study time over days or weeks can substantially boost how much of the material students retain, and for longer, compared to lumping everything into a single, nose-to-the-grindstone session.

– Varying the studying environment — by hitting the books in, say, a cafe or garden rather than only hunkering down in the library, or even by listening to different background music — can help reinforce and sharpen the memory of what you learn.

– A 15-minute break to go for a walk or trawl on social media isn’t necessarily wasteful procrastination. Distractions and interruptions can allow for mental “incubation” and flashes of insight — but only if you’ve been working at a problem for a while and get stuck, according to a 2009 research meta-analysis.

– Quizzing oneself on new material, such as by reciting it aloud from memory or trying to tell a friend about it, is a far more powerful way to master information than just re-reading it, according to work by researchers including Henry Roediger III and Jeffrey Karpicke. (Roediger has co-authored his own book, “Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning.”)

 

Ultimately, the value of these learning strategies isn’t just about earning better grades, Carey said. In the modern jungle of society, learning is still about surviving: For young people, it’s about sussing out what they’re good at, what rings their bell, and what they want to do with their lives. “It’s informing you of: Who am I? Where do I place my bets? Do I major in physics or do I major in architecture or design, or do I major in English? Do I belong here at all?” Carey said. Those are important decisions. “Being self-aware about what’s effective learning and how it happens, I think, gives you a real edge in making those choices.”
