27 Ways to Check Students Prior Knowledge | Educational Technology & Mobile Learning | English education | Scoop.it

Prior knowledge is an essential part of the meaning making negotiated between interlocutors. In classrooms, too, students' prior knowledge is a key factor in students overall achievement and performances. Most often, those lacking this kind of knowledge always lag behind the rest.

A Visual Primer On Learning Theory

A Visual Primer On Learning Theory

 

Theories on how people learn are not new. Piaget, Bruner, Vygotsky, Skinner and others have theorized for years how it is we come to “know” things.

Unlike many theories involving physics for example, it is unlikely that a single learning theory is “right,” and will ultimately prove other theories “wrong.” How people learn is complex, and any unifying theory on how it all happens that’s entirely accurate would likely be too vague to be helpful. In that way, each “theory” is more of a way to describe one truth out of many.

I like learning through visual concept!

Dr. Amana Levi's curator insight, February 8, 2014 3:58 PM

Subscribing to both Bloom and Vygotsky’s social learning theory and currently Webb's Depth of Knowledge allows educators to build upon a student's learning experiences by scaffolding and facilitating questioning techniques to guide students from simple recall to higher levels of creative and critical thinking, thereby allowing them to reflect on their own thinking process. The visual primer is the realization of what "good teachers" and "good leaders" do (i.e. - making meaningful connections and then synthesizing the information).

So what if you could make your own infographics? What would you make it of? It’s actually easier than you think… even if you have zero design skills whatsoever.

Type: Versus

Pros: Easy to understand and read

cons: The colors clash with one another to the point at which it's hard to look at, the colors also look dull and washed out

Kiya James's curator insight, May 13, 3:21 PM

Pro: Good idea for useful bait. The headline really grabs a readers attention.

Con: The colors chosen for the font and details of the infograph clash a little with the picture of the players.

Reading Comprehension Just as Good Using a Kindle as Reading on Paper

Reading Comprehension Just as Good Using a Kindle as Reading on Paper | English education | Scoop.it

A significant milestone was passed last August when Amazon announced that sales of books on its Kindle e-reader platform outstripped print sales for the first time. There's no question that e-readers are convenient - you can load a single device with thousands of titles. But some commentators have started to question whether digital reading has adverse effects on memory and comprehension compared with reading from print.

In 2010, a reassuring study in fact found no difference in recall after reading material electronically versus paper. Now Sara Margolin and her colleagues have looked at reading comprehension and again found no deficits in understanding of material consumed on a Kindle or a computer versus paper.
