How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A study in 1985 “On the Brain of a Scientist: Albert Einstein” found that Einstein’s brain was actually not significantly different from others. As an Organization Development blogger put it:

 

                     ===> what made Einstein different was his mind. <===


His thinking and passion for learning were the basis of his genius. His brain was the same, but his intellect was markedly different. He was often humble about his intellect, and instead said that learning relied on working hard and imagining the impossible. So what made his learning so different? What can we learn from Einstein?

 

Read more, very interesting, a MUST:

Focus on Engagement, and the Outcomes Will Follow

Focus on Engagement, and the Outcomes Will Follow | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

One buzzword that has persisted for decades is "outcomes," which nobly focuses on student performance. In theory measuring learning outcomes should be easy, but in truth, there are so many factors influencing outcomes that are beyond our control.

 

"The more actively engaged students are -- with college faculty and staff, with other students, and with the subject matter they study -- the more likely they are to learn, to stick with their studies, and to attain their academic goals."

And one of the fundamental realities of learning math is that it's cumulative; anything new you're taught is based on what you're supposed to have learned before. If there are gaps in your understanding of the previous topic, ..."\

 

"Level of performance is the constant, and the rate at which students move through the material is the variable. This allows students who are behind the curve to spend as much time as they need to on a topic to truly understand it, but it also allows exceptional students to keep learning."

Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer: Keeping Engaged

Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer:  Keeping Engaged | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In a traditional classroom, the teacher is the center of attention, the owner of knowledge and information. Teachers often ask questions of their students to gauge comprehension, but it’s a passive model that relies on students to absorb information they need to reproduce on tests. What would happen if the roles were flipped and students asked the questions?
