SCIENCE TEACHERS: WATCH THIS VIDEO! This is a great video that explains what students gain from watching videos dealing with science concepts. Watch this and use the information to choose great videos. Or add components to the videos you already watch to help make sure your students will learn.

5 maneiras para aumentar a chances de aprendizagem por meio de videos. O comparativo é feito com videos da  Kahn Academy . Great reserach !

Aquest vídeo et pot sorprendre amb el que els estudiants  aprenen (o no aprèn) quan miran vídeos. Si eres mestre, si estàs creant vídeos per a estudiants o tal vegada utilitzes els d'altres,  agafeu temps per mirar aixo.

Better Teaching: Why You Bore Students & What You Can Do About It

Better Teaching: Why You Bore Students & What You Can Do About It | edanne | Scoop.it

"You don’t mean to bore students. In fact, sometimes you’re downright interesting–the students are engaged, the buzz in the room is palpable, and even the hesitant students are asking questions. But the fact of the matter is, even the most charismatic and experienced teachers bore students sometimes. But the good news is, it may not be your fault."

This post begins with a quote from Plato who "advised against force-feeding of facts to students" (those are not his words, but his words follow this quote) and then moves to the present day and what we know about learning based on neuroscience research into learning. 

Read about how "stress and curiosity edits which sensory information", how the brain has evolved and must make choices about which information to process based on the multititude of "sensory information" being received. This system, the Reticular Activating System or RAS, determines what passes from the lower brainstem to the higher regions.

Other sections include how the brain receives threats and that when it is not under stress the brain is ready to be engaged and learn. Learn ways to work with students so they are engaged and learning, and willing to answer the question "What did you learn in school today?"

Teaching is a two way process. Students of all ages should be encouraged to take a more active part in their learning. When students say to teachers "we want the lesson to be more fun". Why can students not explain what "fun" means? Why can they not demonstrate, using the learning materials how they would like the subject presented in a fun way?

Check out this new guide from Digital Learning on how to implement blended learning. The image above is an from an infographic, which explores the following areas (after discussing what blended learning is):

* The Process - This area has four sections, Create the conditions for success (what do you do before you launch), Plan (what are the key decisions that must be made), Implement (what are the keys to success) and Improve (what are the next steps).

* Top Features of a Blended Platform

* Steps in the Right Direction

* 10 Drivers of Blended Learning

* Get Blended

This link will take you to the page where you may access the five reports that have been published (at this time). This report is available as a full report, as an executive summary and as an infographic.

What happens when you tell your students to "pay attention!" More than you may think. This post explores what goes on in the brain and ways the brain pays attention. Research is shared as well as what you can do in your classroom immediately as well what you can do in the long term.
Short term solutions include "using prediction; using the brief pause and chunk technique; priming the learning with small hints, appetizers and teasers" and more.

"Instead of saying to students, “Pay attention!” what you really want to say is, “Suppress interesting things!” Why? Students already DO pay attention."  The point being, prolonged attention paying is a learned skill, practiced.  Intersperse teaching with stand-up breaks, quick physical activity.  Create "hooks' for attention - previews - and offer rewards - like homework free pass this month - for students who get it right; helps them be invested in topic
