(The Brain)Learning and Cognitive Load - Part 2

(The Brain)Learning and Cognitive Load - Part 2 | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

The fundamental understanding of Cognitive Load Theory is that there exists a limit upon our cognitive capacity and that once we exceed that capacity our ability to learn is impeded. This limit is a construct of our ‘working memory’ which can be shown to have limits on the number of items it may contain and the length of time for which items are retained without renewal. For permanent learning to occur we must move items from this working memory into our long-term memory that for all reasonable purposes is limitless and permanent. As a group of professionals who are interested in learning how we may ensure our students are functioning within the limits of their cognitive load, how we may maximise the efficiency of this transfer to long-term memory is of great relevance.

7 Principles Of The Future Employee

7 Principles Of The Future Employee | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

It's safe to say that the employee of tomorrow is not the same person as the employee of yesterday. The five trends shaping the future of work helped make sure of that fact. 

Oftentimes when I speak at conferences or visit with companies they ask me how the way we work is changing and so that prompted me to put together something called the 7 Principles of the Future Employee. The best way to think about this is as the 7 core ways that employees of the future will work. These are detailed in my latest book on the future of work but a brief summary of these 7 Principles can be found below.

This really is an engagement issue.  As a former preschool, toddler and first grade teacher- I firml believe students "look different" based on gender at these early ages. 

 

So then what?  

 

Again.........I question the content we teach and the timeline we put boys on for learning that content.  I suspect more damage is done by expecting them to be something they aren't.  

 

I can vision a different reality where boys are allowed to be boys with strong men supporting and guiding along the way.  Yes.  We need more men in elementary schools.

Guide: Using the SAMR Model to Guide Learning

Guide: Using the SAMR Model to Guide Learning | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

Technology is an immense tool that can transform the way students learn. One of my favourite quotes which demonstrates this comes from Steve Jobs:
 “What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.“

Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, September 21, 2016 7:13 PM
In my opinion, substitution, argumentation, modification and redefinition (SAMR) model is a very useful tool to have into account as a starting point, or as a reference one, to start thinking about the way teachers can design lessons and the role they want technology to play into the classroom. It could also be used as a way to make students reflect upon the way they normally use technology and to make them aware of other possibilities and different ways in which they could do it. Furthermore, we can use this method as a pretext to discover others and to explore other ways in which technology could help us all to enhance teaching-learning processes.
