Kids Aren't Tired of Learning. They're Tired of School. | John Spencer

Kids Aren't Tired of Learning. They're Tired of School. | John Spencer | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Toward the end of the year, I remember feeling absolutely exhausted as a teacher. Once the testing is over and the pressure is gone, there's this sense of relief. However, this was nothing compared to what my eighth graders experienced. You could see it in their slouched shoulders and the glazed-over look in their eyes.

They were done.

And yet . . .

They were done with school but they weren't done with learning. They were done with consuming and not creating. They were done with having compliance. They were done with routines. They were done with repetitive work. But they weren't done with choice. They weren't done with creativity. They weren't done with deep conversations.

It took me a few years to realize that once the test was over, I had two choices:

Οι μικροί φίλοι του Μουσείου μαθαίνουν να προγραμματίζουν ρομποτάκια, κάνουν πειράματα, μελετούν το DNA με τον πιο διασκεδαστικό τρόπο και φορούν τα γάντια τους για να συντηρήσουν μουσειακά αντικείμενα.

Με θέμα «Εξελισσόμαστε με την Επιστήμη», το  Athens Science Festival, ένα μοναδικό πολιτιστικό γεγονός με στόχο το «άνοιγμα» της Επιστήμης, Τεχνολογίας, Καινοτομίας στο ευρύ κοινό, επιστρέφει για τρίτη συνεχή χρονιά στην καρδιά της Αθήνας: στην Τεχνόπολη του Δήμου Αθηναίων, από τις 5-10 Απριλίου 2016, με πλούσιο πρόγραμμα και ελεύθερη είσοδο. Για έξι ημέρες, μικροί και μεγάλοι θα έχουν την ευκαιρία να «κατακτήσουν» τη γνώση μέσα από ένα πρωτότυπο, διασκεδαστικό και συναρπαστικό τρόπο. Ερευνητές, επιστήμονες, εκπαιδευτικοί και καλλιτέχνες από τον ελληνικό και διεθνή επιστημονικό χώρο ενώνουν τις γνώσεις, τη φαντασία και την εμπειρία τους για να παρουσιάσουν, όπως ποτέ άλλοτε, τον μαγικό κόσμο της επιστήμης. Μέσα από ένα σύνολο ξεχωριστών εκδηλώσεων: εκπαιδευτικά πειράματα, δρώμενα, ομιλίες, καφέ τις επιστήμης, διαδραστικές εκθέσεις, θεατρικές παραστάσεις και πρωτότυπα εργαστήρια, οι επισκέπτες κάθε ηλικίας θα ανακαλύψουν, κατανοήσουν και ερμηνεύσουν τα μυστήρια του  κόσμου που μας περιβάλλει. Παράλληλα θα έχουν τη μοναδική ευκαιρία να παρακολουθήσουν και να συνομιλήσουν με μερικούς από τους πλέον αξιόλογους Έλληνες και ξένους επιστήμονες που έχει να αναδείξει η ακαδημαϊκή κοινότητα.

District Game-based Learning Implementation Guide | Filament Games | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Rebecca comes to school everyday disengaged, unfocused, and unwilling to socialize with other kids in class. She sits in the back of the classroom anxiously awaiting the end of the day. When she goes home she doesn’t talk about the exciting things she learned at school because she doesn’t find the lessons and activities all that exciting. Do you have a student like Rebecca in your class? Maybe you have a few students like Rebecca in your district. The problem isn’t that she’s not a smart student, the problem is that she isn’t engaged with classroom content. We hear stories like Rebecca’s a lot at Filament Games.

8 Ways Smart People Use Failure To Their Advantage - Forbes

8 Ways Smart People Use Failure To Their Advantage - Forbes | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

One of the biggest roadblocks to success is the fear of failure. Fear of failure is worse than failure itself because it condemns you to a life of unrealized potential.

 

A successful response to failure is all in your approach. In a study recently published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, researchers found that success in the face of failure comes from focusing on results (what you hope to achieve), rather than trying not to fail. While it’s tempting to try and avoid failure, people who do this fail far more often than those who optimistically focus on their goals.

 

This sounds rather easy and intuitive, but it’s very hard to do when the consequences of failure are severe. The researchers also found that positive feedback increased people’s chances of success because it fueled the same optimism you experience when focusing solely on your goals.

8 strategies to improve Executive Functions of the brain

8 strategies to improve Executive Functions of the brain | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
What are the executive functions of the brain, and what can you do as an educator to support their development in students?

That’s what the graphic below from understood.org seeks to answer. According to Harvard, “Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. Just as an air traffic control system at a busy airport safely manages the arrivals and departures of many aircraft on multiple runways, the brain needs this skill set to filter distractions, prioritize tasks, set and achieve goals, and control impulses.”

Upon your request, here is a collection of some of the best strategy games to play on your iPad or iPhone. We have scrupulously handpicked these apps from the gaming section in iTunes App Store. And as we have argued in a previous post, ‘Strategy games are ideal for helping kids develop logico-mathematical skills that emphasize problem solving and strategic planning. Given the challenging nature of play involved in these games which is based entirely  on the decisions and moves players make, strategy games can also enhance  kids’ autonomous decision making skills and skillful thinking.’ Check out the apps below and share us your feedback.
