Why Floundering Makes Learning Better | TIME.com

Why Floundering Makes Learning Better | TIME.com | Educational technology | Scoop.it
Call it the "learning paradox": the more you struggle and even fail while you're trying to master new information, the better you're likely to recall and apply that information later.

 

"The learning paradox is at the heart of 'productive failure,' a phenomenon identified by Manu Kapur. ... Kapur points out that while the model adopted by many teachers and employers when introducing others to new knowledge — providing lots of structure and guidance early on, until the students or workers show that they can do it on their own — makes intuitive sense, it may not be the best way to promote learning. Rather, it’s better to let the neophytes wrestle with the material on their own for a while, refraining from giving them any assistance at the start."

Stephen Bright's curator insight, October 7, 2013 4:48 PM

Moovly has some limitations - you use a standard palate of shapes or images to do the animation with. That said, it is easy to use and the free version seems quite adequate for what most people would want to do.

have you ever wanted to add a video snippet to a presentation?

It needs downloading - obviously - and I'm not sure I want all this on my computer yet.  I'll have to wait until I have a ground-breaking idea for my next online, budget Hollywood movie.

Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s curator insight, August 9, 2013 2:06 PM

Fine to know...

Dafnord 's curator insight, August 10, 2013 1:55 AM

Kannataa seurata Viljenka Savlin skuuppauksia. Hän on pätevä tabletien  käyttäjä ja tabletien käytön kouluttaja, joka on aloittanut työskentelyn sähköisillä rihvelitauluilla ( Android, iPad, Windows) ja appseilla heti kun ne tulivat markkinoille ja otettiin käyttöön kouluissa. Vili on ollut European Schools Projectin slovenialainen koordinattori jo 1990-luvulta asti. Hän on kouluttanut vuosien ajan eurooppalaisia opettajia "Midnight Sun" Comenius 2 -kursseilla Inarissa, ks http://www.ejournal.fi/lapcom2/ . Vili on kouluttajana kurssilla jatkossakin. Kurssi pidetään Inarissa tällä kertaa 27.4. - 3.5. 2014, eikä keskikesällä, johtuen EU:n opetusalan koulutusjärjestelmän muutoksesta. Globaalista oppimisesta ja projektimenetelmistä kiinnostuneita suomalaisia opettajia on osallistunut kursseille, mutta he eivät voi saada EU:n apurahaa kurssia varten.
