Motivation: The Overlooked Sixth Component of Reading

Motivation: The Overlooked Sixth Component of Reading | The Intersection of Technology and Education | Scoop.it

Learners are motivated by three factors: desire to learn, incentives, or fear of failure. As we grow, most of the early curiosity is tested away, and school becomes work. Obstacles increase, desire to learn decreases, and incentives and/or fear of failure move to the forefront. Jack Canfield, self-esteem expert, reports that 80 percent of first graders posses high self-esteem, but by high school graduation, this drops to a staggering five percent.

What is 21st century education? - YouTube

"Our world is changing at an unprecedented pace. To prepare our students, lessons must go beyond the "3 R's" and foster 21st century skills. Skills like critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity will be essential for students to take on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead."

All this is true  so where do we start?  Children do not start learning when they go to school.  They start learning the moment their eyes open.  Parents can help their children activate their brains and create fantastic neural networks.  All children can encompass all the different styles of learning; Visual:; Auditory; Verbal; Kinaesthetic: -Using touch and taste to explore the information; Logical: a  mathematical approach to concepts; Interpersonal -Learning in groups; Intrapersonal - Learning  alone. Try some of the early learning from home school resources.

Did you know that it is estimated that 1 out of 5 people struggle with dyslexia (and often do not realize it)? This post provides a range of resources that look at dyslexia. The resources are grouped in four areas:

* Understanding Dsylexia

* Identifying Dyslexia

* How to Teach Dyslexic Students

* Personalizing Dyslexia

The resources include videos and articles/posts as well as a link to a great website at Yale. And if you have a student in your class how is dyslexic they might be interested in learning that the following people were also dyslexic: Albert Einstein, Steven Jobs, Walt Disney, Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg were also dyslexic.

Western Nutrition News's curator insight, October 10, 2014 6:37 AM

very worthwhile!  Did you know that th earliest sign of dyslexia is difficulty telling right from left?  and that the kids will blithely interchange hands, not even knowing that they're doing it?

How To Get Started With Visual Learning In The Classroom

How To Get Started With Visual Learning In The Classroom | The Intersection of Technology and Education | Scoop.it
Humans thrive on visual stimuli, and interaction. We don’t want to hear about the latest tablet, or even read an article about it. We want to see it for ourselves. More than that, we want to experience it for ourselves. We want to press all the buttons, test out the apps, and personalize every feature. …

Research tells us that visuals are an important element of learning, and that when visuals are used in classrooms, yet many classrooms are based on text. This post looks at three areas:

* Bringing Active Learning Back to the Classroom - How much of the time are the learners in your class actively participating as compared to passively listening?

* Embracing Visual - Visuals help many learners understand complex subjects. Experts in many fields can look at images and quickly learn complex information. Are you teaching your learners visual skills?

* Retrieving Practice - "By combining visual training with active learning, students can go from novice to expert in far less time than with traditional study methods."

As many of us prepare to return to school embracing visuals and teaching our students how to interpret visuals has the potential to promote better understanding. This post provides some great pointers and you will find a link to the original research.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, August 21, 2014 9:13 PM

An art teacher and I (drama teacher) started to use a negotiated approach with students about 15 years ago.  By working with students to be aware of curriculum expectations and discussing "what would this look like" we assisted students with developingntheir own learnign pathways and expressions of their learning - in keeping with the legislated requirements of curriculum.  I've also noted over the years that elements of the International Baccalaureate - particularly the project work from MYP - reflects a similar approach.

Without reference to research literature, I'd speculate that this speaks to engagement, authenticity and relevance... and needn't be confined to K-12 contexts.... well-documented project work could be conducted outside the confines of formal classes and evidenced against formal assessment criteria.

Durriyyah Kemp's curator insight, August 22, 2014 11:10 AM

Project-Based Learning is a great vehicle for allowing student to gain social and emotional learning (SEL) skills.  The five core competency skills for SEL (self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision-making, and self-management) can be easily integrated into any project-based learning opportunity.

Why this matters:


  • Apple is racing to become the first and leading tech platform for healthcare in the U.S.  
  • It is in talks with America's most prestigious hospitals: Mount Sinai, Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins, to become a "hub of health data" which doesn't just pool data for your personal consumption, but makes it available to physicians as and when they need it.
