Eye-Tracking Study Finds Students' Attentiveness Depends on Location, Location, Location - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Eye-Tracking Study Finds Students' Attentiveness Depends on Location, Location, Location - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The conventional wisdom among educators that students’ attention tends to drift off after 15 minutes is wrong, according to a new study conducted with eye-tracking devices.

 

The study, conducted by David Rosengrant, an assistant professor of physics education at Kennesaw State University, found no pattern in when students become distracted. Instead, students’ focus waxes and wanes throughout a lecture and is strongly affected by factors such as where in the lecture hall the student is sitting.

Blogging in the classroom: why your students should write online | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

For the past few months Michael Drennan's GCSE and A level students have been doing all their writing via student blogs. Writing in classrooms seems to me to have two wildly different, conflicting purposes: a limited, traditional and strict purpose - because exams, like many decent jobs, will be about written skill; and a wider, idealistic one: the ultimate method of exchange of ideas in depth.

Australian university students have followed the lead of their overseas counterparts in creating Facebook pages that document campus life through memes.

 

Although the first university meme page reportedly appeared in October 2011, the phenomenon gained momentum in February when students across the US and UK began posting humorous image macros relevant to their universities, including Yale and Cambridge. Quick to embrace the trend, students of several local institutions including UTS, Newcastle University, ANU and Monash set up their own versions early in the autumn semester.

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Developing Your Digital Study Skills | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Making the move from our safe and trusted traditional literacy habits to newer digital skills can be quite a challenge, but as teachers I think we are really unlikely to be able to use technology and help our students use technology really effectively unless we are prepared to face this challenge. Technology needs to be more than part of the way we teach but it also has to be part of the way we ourselves continue to learn and part of our everyday professional practice.
