How to Teach Listening in the Digital Age: Three Questions to Ask

By Erik Palmer When I began teaching a couple of decades ago, I read an article about how much television children watched. I was stunned by the numbers and wondered if my class was typical. I surveyed them.

52 Of The Best Quotes About Learning - TeachThought

52 Of The Best Quotes About Learning - TeachThought | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
So then, the quotes. Below we’ve hand-picked 52 of our favorite quotes about learning. (We’ve already got a follow-up article drafted because there are many we like that didn’t make the cut this time.) We tried to choose from a variety of thinkers, from teachers and writers to poets and farmers to philosophers and entrepreneurs to civil rights leaders and, in a few cases, even politicians.

These quotes necessarily reflect a particular view of learning, so in that way this list is editorialized. At TeachThought, we focus on the human/critical thinking/innovation angle, and the quotes we chose mostly reflect that.

For me, this is a fascinating article. I researched how teachers experience becoming teachers in my dissertation. John Caputo, William Doll, David Jardine, etc. refer to chaos theory and complexity science in writing about teaching. I think these fields and how they embrace uncertainty are valuable to explore how identity forms.

“The importance of effort extends beyond our daily decisions about time allocation. Recent studies show that self-control and persistence increase academic outcomes independent of IQ. Even our personal beliefs about effort can affect academic outcomes. Children who think effort leads to achievement outperform those who believe ability is a fixed trait.”

Research findings showed that it may actually be possible to replace aging brain cells and restore memory through a new technique that involves taking donor neural stem cells and grafting them into an aged brain.

What Are Kernels? In a 2008 paper published in Clinical Child and Family Psychology, Dennis Embry and Anthony Biglan describe kernels as “fundamental units of behavioral influence”—bite-size strategies that are validated by mountains of empirical evidence and teacher experience. (Barry Parsonson’s “Evidence-Based Classroom Behavior Management Strategies” offers another deep dive into the research.)

As the study cited above mentions, like other digital readers, you probably think you are absorbing the information better than you actually are, and thus move through the book faster.

A simple solution to this is to simply slow down and take more time reading the material, and you might absorb the information just as well as those who naturally take longer to read a paper book.

This 18-Year-Old Makes Innovative Prosthetics From Recycled Plastic | Fast Company

This 18-Year-Old Makes Innovative Prosthetics From Recycled Plastic | Fast Company | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Aaron Westbrook was born with only one hand. Several years ago, while a freshman at New Albany High School in Ohio, he tried out his first prosthetic. It didn’t fit well, and cost about $40,000, a somewhat staggering sum, considering he would eventually outgrow it. “That’s when I realized that there was a really big issue with prosthetics right now,” he says. “They’re too expensive and they’re just plain inefficient.”

So Westbrook, who is now 18, decided to make his own, using the 3D printer in his school’s fab lab. The plastic hand had an elbow-controlled cable system, allowing its fingers to open or close. Generally speaking, though, prosthetics like that are task-specific; if you need a special grip, you might need to design a different kind of limb attachment. That can mean a lot of different prosthetics, and a lot of expensive purchases.

This article shows us a new way of putting into practice and developing our critical thiking skills from a more introspective perspective. It also shows us that this process should not necessarily be something very difficult, even when it involves carrying out a variety of complex cogniive processes, it shows this process based on inquiry. Questioning everything we see and hear in or everyday life is one way of starting to foster this process in order to get involved with more difficult tasks once we have reached certain level of development in terms of HOTS.

Being Popular: Why it Consumes Teens and Continues to Affect Adults - MindShift

Being Popular: Why it Consumes Teens and Continues to Affect Adults - MindShift | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Popularity is a loaded word. For many adults, it evokes powerful memories of jockeying for position in high school cafeterias and hallways.

These memories are salient for a reason, said Mitch Prinstein, a professor of psychology and author of “Popular: The Power of Likability in a Status-Obsessed World.” The urge to be popular among our peers reaches its zenith in adolescence, “at just the same time we are developing a stable personality,” said Prinstein. “So the messages you get at age 14 about who you are and how the world works will affect how you behave when you are 40.”

But popularity has paradoxes. Sometimes the most popular students are also widely disliked by their peers — even when those same peers seek to emulate them.  And although we are hardwired to seek popularity, it isn’t always healthy for us, said Prinstein. In fact, one form of popularity puts teens at risk for long-term consequences.
