Slowing Down to Learn: Mindful Pauses That Can Help Student Engagement

Slowing Down to Learn: Mindful Pauses That Can Help Student Engagement | EFL games and activities | Scoop.it
One way to promote engagement and learning is to consciously create pauses throughout the day. We can create a sense of spaciousness in our classroom by slowing down the pace of our speech and punctuating our lessons with silence. Introduced well, this practice can improve classroom discourse.

Florence Gilzene-Cheese's curator insight, September 11, 2015 5:48 PM

A useful technique to support learning engagement in the classroom. Akin to sustained silent reading or individual work, this process allows independent and critical thinking skill development.

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, September 11, 2015 10:23 PM

Engagement is front and center in implementation of UDL. Great to see this sort of realization about allowing time to process and to "breathe". This is especially important for students with learning challenges. Way to go!

Good insight, Nik! I'm sure most of those teachers afraid of using ICT will see themselves here!

Marinhos's curator insight, February 6, 5:45 AM

Se as licenciatura não mudarem - e radicalmente - os seus docentes permanecerão fazenão a escola sem tecnologia (digital). No dia em que não mais houver motivos para os formadores de formadores não usarem essa tecnologia, os professores das escolas da Educação Básica também não os terão. Carência na formação é a primeira peça do dominó a ser derrubada.

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners | EFL games and activities | Scoop.it
When students learn to reflect meaningfully about their learning, they can participate in a dialogue with the teacher that allows them to work together to determine the actual level of mastery. No longer working in isolation, the teacher can now adequately discuss depth of learning, thereby helping students to communicate particular knowledge that is too often absent from their final products. After students provide the teacher with thorough information about their process, the teacher is in a better position to assess student learning.

Nik Peachey - creativity in the language classroom | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | EFL games and activities | Scoop.it

Creativity or rather the lack of it is becoming and increasingly important issue within a global context of increased emphasis on standardisation and testing within educational systems. In this webinar Nik looks at a new British Council publication that seeks to redress the balance and help teachers to interject an element of creativity into the English language classroom.
Nik examines the background to the emergence of the book and explores the re-emerging importance of creativity in the educational milieu.
