Yet research has already told us a lot about how we read now. First and foremost, it emphasises that even using paper, there are many different approaches. Most of us probably have a settled style: you might be a skimmer, a skipper, a front-to-back completist, a keeper of the pristine page or an obsessive writer of marginalia. Whatever the case, our habits have probably been created largely as combination of childhood experience and how the medium we read in is nudging us.

Knowledge Sharing Tools and Methods Toolkit - Social Network Analysis

Knowledge Sharing Tools and Methods Toolkit - Social Network Analysis | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Social network analysis is the mapping and measuring of relationships and flows between people, groups, organisations, computers or other information/knowledge processing entities." (Valdis Krebs, 2002). Social Network Analysis (SNA) is a method for visualizing our people and connection power, leading us to identify how we can best interact to share knowledge.

When to use:Visualize relationships within and outside of the organization.Facilitate identification of who knows who and who might know what - teams and individuals playing central roles - thought leaders, key knowledge brokers, experts, etc.Identify isolated teams or individuals and knowledge bottlenecks.Strategically work to improve knowledge flows.Accelerate the flow of knowledge and information across functional and organisational boundaries.Improve the effectiveness of formal and informal communication channels.Raise awareness of the importance of informal networks.

The Pomodoro Technique®

The Pomodoro Technique® | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
ETU - Imperial College Busines School's insight:

When we are faced with something that we don’t want to do, e.g. working on a tough math problem, pain centers in our brain will light up, and our initial reaction may be to avoid that feeling, by putting it off. For many of us, that can be a click away on YouTube, with its rich case studies on cat behavior and other engrossing content. But the neuroscience trick is to realize that the initial negative reaction will go away after a short time, so we need to find a way to help get students started.

One method for doing this is the Pomodoro Technique, where you set a 25-minute timer for focused activity and then take a 5-minute break.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 22, 7:01 PM

After describing the three phases of the learning process based on cognitive science. The first two phases:

* Students decide what to attend to.

* Students organize the information

These work with short term memory but to know the information students must also activate long term memory which may begin in class with a review but should also includes well crafted assignments.

What can you do?The post continues by exploring ways to capture a students attention and ways to help them create a framework. The final section explores how to make the lesson stick. Three examples are below (quoted from the post).

* Begin lectures with a high level question that the upcoming information can answer.

* Highlight the "unfinished" nature of each subject.

* Don't use too many types of different presentation materials at once.

Throughout the post there are links to additional resources.

How do students learn? There are many concepts that look at this question, and the visual above in one way to view this. 

To the left you have a box that shows that students take in content by reading, writing, listening and experiencing, and that to comprehend and interpret content they must have prior knowledge, make observations, identify main and supporting ideas and gather evidence.

In the midle section the student has to take the input and use critical thinking skills. To do this they must also be engaged in and committed to the learning process. 

And the final section looks at their output, how does the student show what they have learned.

In all phases technology may play a role.

This visual would be great to spark discussion amongst faculy.

For all the wild variety of our cultures, personalities, and thought patterns, we’re all still operating with roughly the same three-pound lump of gray matter. But almost from day one, the allotment of neurons in those brains (and therefore the way they function) is different today from the way it was even one generation ago. Every second of your lived experience represents new connections among the roughly 86 billion neurons packed inside your brain.

These would seem to correlate with Thomas Friedman's    "The world is flat" idea.  Basically we need to value and  respect all human beings as those  people at the bottom of the tree last century wont always be there:  

 

Emotional intelligence (feel things from others point of view).  Communication (learn to speak  another person's language). Problem-solving (Listen to and understand someone else's pain and joy); Team-working (the ability to liaise with others as humans who feel pain, cry, hurt just as you do).  

 

Basically the emphasis seems to be on humanity as one rather group rather than the superficial differences.  The idea is for human beings to leave the savannah.
