Why The Need To Task Switch? Too Much Lecturing!

Why The Need To Task Switch?  Too Much Lecturing! | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
With easy access to all sorts of technology, students multitask. So do lots of us, for that matter. But students are way too convinced that multitasking is a great way to work.

 

This may be true!  BUT....attention spans last about 15-20 minutes on a good day.  What about ENGAGING the students in active, creative ways?  Projects?  Discussions?  They wouldn't need to switch tasks if they were engaged!  

 

I also don't know that everyone on their computer tries to believe they are doing two things at once. They are trying to stay engaged.  

 

If your students aren't engagaed, ASK WHY!!!!

Kate Thompson's curator insight, June 10, 2013 9:26 PM

This article identifies the need for pre-service teachers to understand the importance of personal learning, and develop the appropriate skills necessary to implement these methods into their own classrooms. With the emphasis on technology used within a learning environment. Meaningful student learning has also been supported through studies that demonstrate an effective pedagogical use of ICT for learning. The model of Technology for Personalising Learning (TPL) is included in the article and is part of the planning for higher education with personal learning. As a pre-service teacher I understand the relevance of personal learning particularly in a differentiated classroom. Classrooms that need to accommodate for students with varying abilities will benefit from personal learning as they develop and learn at their own pace.
