Assessment, Choice, and the Learning Brain

Assessment, Choice, and the Learning Brain | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it
The growing field of educational neuroscience, converging developmental psychology, cognitive science, and education, can help teachers and school leaders rethink how they approach assessments. While some of its initial findings merely support what educators have intuitively believed, it is also challenging many assumptions and providing new insight into best educational practices, especially regarding assessment.

"We’ve all heard it before, “Kids don’t know grammar anymore because all they do is text,” or “Today’s generation misses everything going on around them because they’re staring at their phones.” But a recent research study by UCLA warns the damage of too much screen time may be even worse than many of us imagined."

Do you think games have a place in your classroom? This newly released data is from a survey of 694 K-8 teachers in the U.S. that the Joan Ganz Cooney Center conducted in 2013 to see how teachers are using digital games in their classrooms.
What are some of the findings?

* 74% of teachers are using games in their classroom

* 55% of students play games at least once a week

* 72% of students access games on a PC or a Mac, and 41% of teachers use a white board to share games

* The two greatest barriers are the time it takes to implement games (45%) and the cost of the games (44%)

This post from Games and Learning provides the current data in both a visual and written form. There is much more to be found on the website. You may also want to check out the Joan Ganz Cooney Center. They have also published an article on this which may be found at http://www.joanganzcooneycenter.org/2014/06/09/digital-games-in-the-classroom-a-national-surevy/

Map in your mind, what is research all about, what are the key points and what you hope to achieve as the conclusion of this research and does your information smoothly flows proving towards your conclusion?

Shona Whyte's curator insight, June 7, 2013 4:32 AM

An iTILT publication by Hillier, Beauchamp & Whyte just appeared in the BESA journal Educational Perspectives.  The editorial notes: "Vol. 5 (2) is a themed edition of the journal, its focus being international and comparative issues in Education Studies. The first article by Emily Hillier, Gary Beauchamp and Shona Whyte involves teachers from schools across seven countries in Europe. It is a study of self-efficacy in the use of interactive whiteboards across educational settings. It offers a pan-European perspective through its report and analysis on the preliminary findings of an EU-funded project called Interactive Technologies in Language Teaching. Significantly, despite reporting initial low levels of self-efficacy with particular features and tools of the IWB, teachers across the European cohort remained positive about the potential benefit of using IWBs to increase pupil participation, engagement and motivation."

There are some amazing examples of how colors actually affect our purchasing decisions. After all, sight is the strongest developed sense in most human beings. It’s only natural that 90% of an assessment for trying out a product is made by color alone.

 

So how do colors really affect us, and what is the science of colors in marketing, really? As we strive to make improvements to online products, studying this phenomenon is key. Find some of the latest, most interesting research on the subject at the article link...

Is Learning Facts a Trivial Pursuit?

Is Learning Facts a Trivial Pursuit? | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

Question: You wrote recently about the importance of teaching search skills. What do you make of the whole idea that kids no longer need to learn facts because they can find answers so easily online? Do you think that is true?

 

Answer: When I was growing up, we used to say that you don’t need to know everything, just know how to find it. I firmly believe the same today, but I now appreciate that an integral part of search literacy is knowing enough background information to make informed decisions about what sources to believe. The ability to evaluate sources is one of the linchpin skills students need for navigating research both online and off.


Read on for a more detailed answer.

Nowadays, not using any type of social media makes you feel like you don't "belong", and changes your relationships. Hanging out with firends has a whole other aspect now, because we don't communicate together anymore but someone will tweet whatthe other person just said or someone else will snapchat the game that you are playing.

A shocking statistic about the quality of education research

A shocking statistic about the quality of education research | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it
A research study about research studies comes up with a cautionary finding.

 

For more than a decade, school reformers have said that education policy should be driven by “research” and “data,” but there’s a big question about how much faith anyone should have in a great deal of education research. This is so not only because the samples are too small or because some research projects are funded by specific companies looking for specific results, but because in nearly all cases, it appears that nobody can be certain their results are completely accurate.

 

“I would love to believe that every single person doing education research around the world has ethics that are as pure as the driven snow,” Plucker said. “[But] the law of averages tells us there’s something out there.”

The concept of replication has never made sense to me. We should be reproducing and reconstructing. Reproducing and reconstructing are not about identical. They are about checking more data against the original data collected. One can never replicate/duplicate the same situation so it is about similarities rather than exactness.

"Going online and talking to people you don’t know about areas of shared scholarly interest opens up your reach and reputation for what you do. It opens up your capacity to build communities of practice around shared interests. It opens up the possibility that when people in your field – the people reviewing your panel or on your next granting committee – hear your name, it will be one of those they already recognize and trust. Maybe. There’s a LOT of Your Mileage May Vary here."

Did you know that 1.3 million people are moving to cities each week?!
