7 Brain-based Tips for eLearning Success

7 Brain-based Tips for eLearning Success | General learning capabilities | Scoop.it

The brain is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve by obtaining new knowledge and skills, even before birth. Unfortunately, retaining information can be challenging, simply because instructors and course designers do not always use methods that facilitate remembering. The following seven points look at key principles from neuroscience research paired with tips that will allow course creators to achieve effective eLearning development.

Why It’s Imperative to Teach Students How to Question as the Ultimate Survival Skill

Why It’s Imperative to Teach Students How to Question as the Ultimate Survival Skill | General learning capabilities | Scoop.it
AboutAlbertEinstein

By Warren Berger
Friday March 14 is the 135th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s birthday, a good time to think about the importance of asking questions.

Via Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby
Tina Jameson's insight:

Fantastic article about the need to encourage 'questions' rather than answers.  The article is critical of teaching that focuses on content and concepts , and also points out the negative impact of 'peer approval' which discourages many students from asking questions.

more...
Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, March 17, 6:38 AM

While the article itself is interesting, I find the comments at the end equally so. I think the point of this article is that teachers should be thinking in terms of how  to teach the students to ask questions: how to ask, when to ask, how to use the replies, and how to think about questioning. I think it will take diligent efforts after years of teaching to "THE" right answer.

What exactly does ‘blended learning’ look like? This video explains | Hechinger Report

The term “blended learning” is fast-becoming one of the education buzzwords that you will hear at conferences and in news articles.

Some call it digital learning or “personalized learning,” which is another way of describing how teachers can work with students at their individual skill level and deliver real-time instruction as needed — with the help of technology.

Ten Questions You Should Ask Before You Flip Your Classroom - jonbergmann.com

Ten Questions You Should Ask Before You Flip Your Classroom - jonbergmann.com | General learning capabilities | Scoop.it

As the school year starts, many teachers are wanting to implement flipped learning into their classes. Before you begin, I encourage you to answer each of the questions below. The purpose of the questions is to help teachers BEGIN the process of flipping their class. This is only the first step. Flipped Class 101 can lead to Flipped Learning, which is a second stage of the Flipped Class. Many teachers are asking for some step by step guidelines as they begin.


Via Nik Peachey
Tina Jameson's insight:

Once you understand the purpose of a 'Flipped Classroom', you need to look at the best way to achieve success.  In addition to suggesting questions that you should ask yourself before 'flipping' your class teaching, the article lists a number of potential tools to be used for recording your offline material.

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, January 17, 3:47 PM

The very first question - "What will you flip?  (A lesson, a unit/chapter, a subject, or a class)" - definitely sets the context. You can dip your toe in or take the plunge. This post is well worth the time to read and then you can check out the related links.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 19, 8:42 AM

This is an interesting infograhic. Does constructivism really mean learners are in control of their learning? This almost suggests learning can be planned in ways that are certain which does not take into consideration environmental interacting and human relating. John Dewey suggested learning is about interacting with the environment in unexpected ways that reconstruct learner and the environment. It is about reconstructing rather than simply reorganizing.

EARTH HOUR

EARTH HOUR | General learning capabilities | Scoop.it

On March 31 2007, WWF-Australia inspired more than 2.2 million individuals and 2,000 businesses to turn their lights out for one hour in the first Earth Hour event – kicking off the world's largest voluntary action for the environment.

This year, Earth Hour Australia is turning Earth Hour on its axis, using the power of Earth Hour to shine a light on one of the world’s most loved – and vulnerable – places: The Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but it’s future is uncertain. Climate change is raising ocean temperatures and making seawater more acidic, threatening the survival of the coral and the animals that call it home. And to make it even worse, the Queensland and Australian Governments are fast-tracking mega port developments, including the world’s biggest coal port at Abbot Point.

The Earth Hour community is taking action to tell Australia’s Prime Minister that if we don’t act now, the effects of climate change on our reef will be irreversible in just sixteen years.

Get involved at www.earthhour.org.au

Earth Hour - this year's Australian focus is on the Great Barrier Reef.  The Earth Hour website provides lots of information and links to world projects which would fit in beautifully with the Australian Curriculum cross curriculum priority of sustainability.
