Research Trends: Why Homework Should Be Balanced - Edutopia

Research Trends: Why Homework Should Be Balanced - Edutopia | E-Learning | Scoop.it
Homework: effective learning tool or waste of time?

Since the average high school student spends almost seven hours each week doing homework, it's surprising that there's no clear answer. Homework is generally recognized as an effective way to reinforce what students learn in class, but claims that it may cause more harm than good, especially for younger students, are common.

Here's what the research says:

Finland's Schools Are Overhauling The Way They Do Things. Here's How - Huffington Post

Finland's Schools Are Overhauling The Way They Do Things. Here's How - Huffington Post | E-Learning | Scoop.it
Finland’s education system, often held up as an exemplary model for the rest of the world, is on the verge of making some major changes.

For years, Finland has led the pack in international test scores, becoming a source of fascination for education policymakers and experts. Now, the country is changing the way it teaches students. Going forward, Finnish schools will be placing less emphasis on individual subjects like math and history, and will instead focus on broader, more interdisciplinary topics. The goal, according to Finnish leaders, is to provide students with the necessary skills for a more technological, global society.

Here are three things you need to know about Finland’s changing education system:

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, March 16, 12:57 AM

Although, I keep repeating that it is not just the technology that matters, but also the person who uses it that makes a change to pedagogy, people keep thinking that technology alone can make a difference! Used properly, and in proper hands, technology can and does make a big difference. Need I say that technology removes the clutter from pedagogy if used judiciously and planned ahead of time.Having wifi, a projector, a white board to back up as a projection screen, and carrying a laptop or a tablet does  make a big difference to the effectiveness in our teaching strategies. My suggestion to educationists interested in innovation in pedagogy through technology would be that they should develop their own instructional modules. The best way they could do this is to put in the use of technology in their lesson plans, and to embed resources within their Daily lesson plans. If you intend to use technology in your classroom, then plan for it so that it becomes a means to an end and not the end itself!

Three Ways Film Can Enhance the Student Classroom Experience | Edudemic | E-Learning | Scoop.it
Do you remember the joy that you felt as a student when you saw the teacher roll the TV into the classroom? Your students can experience the same joy when you show a film in your own classroom – and it won’t be because it’s a perceived distraction. In her recent Guardian.com blog post, Sarah Marsh outlines 12 ways to use film creatively in the classroom. Building on concepts from that piece, we’ll focus on three key themes here: film immersion, cultural immersion, and student activity.

Even the maker movement's reliance on "creative spaces" is a relatively new phenomenon. "

Understanding Middle Schoolers: 4 Tips for Success - Getting Smart

Understanding Middle Schoolers: 4 Tips for Success - Getting Smart | E-Learning | Scoop.it

"Understanding those on the verge of or in the trenches of middle school can be like finishing a complex puzzle only to realize there is a single missing piece — just when you think you have them all figured out, they pivot and leave you just as confused as you started. They sometimes feel like a walking contradiction: they want your love, but would prefer you did not show it in public; what makes them laugh one day, brings them to tears the next; going to school used to be the best part of their day, now they dread it. Whatever the contradiction is in your household, it is important to remember that the journey that these soon to be adults are traveling is a difficult yet AWESOME one. They are in a constant state of learning and discovery and as parents and guardians, we GET to be along for the ride!"

6 Ways to Use the Slight Edge in Your Classroom | Edudemic

6 Ways to Use the Slight Edge in Your Classroom | Edudemic | E-Learning | Scoop.it
Will Smith once told a story from his childhood in which his father broke down the brick wall at his business and told him and his brother to rebuild it. It took them a year, but they finished the job and learned a powerful lesson contained within a memorable metaphor. He explains, “You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say ‘I’m going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built.’ You don’t start there. You say, ‘I’m going to lay this brick as perfect as a brick can be laid. You do that every single day and soon you have a wall.” This story from Will Smith captures the very essence of the Slight Edge philosophy that we will discuss in this article. Applying this idea within the classroom will help students develop a strong long term sense of accomplishment that is necessary to achieve their goals.

Even if your students would much rather be watching videos on YouTube than learning about the Roman Empire, you still have the upper hand: they want to be using the device. Period."
