Learning to Learn in a New World

Learning to learn in a changing world.

Sherry Weaver's insight:

Great presentation to make us educators stop and think.  It can be very empowering with the right approach.  My favourite (among many) quotes:  "If you don't like change, you are going to like irrelevance even less..."

Wow! I have never seen so powerful and critical a set of messages for all educators to take cognizance of - we need to remain relevant or be side-lined in our roles as teachers. Thank you for sharing - I am going to send it out to my network of educators as it is truly AWESOME! Thank you so much.

7 Brainy Ways to Boost Knowledge Retention in eLearning

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 25, 8:05 AM

When we think of ways to boost knowledge retention in our learners, what works for students that are online also works for students in face2face classes. This post from SH!FT provides seven ways to help student retain knowledge. The visual above illustrates the concepts. The post provides additional information as well as links to

#1 - When possible, use diagrams. Many people are visual learners. Consider using graphic organizers to provide "holistic views, expressing relationships, and identifying contrasting data."

#2 - Incorporate unique and out-of-the ordinary images. Why? Images stay with us longer, and the more unique, the longer they tend to stay with us.

#3 - Dish out sensory details. The more details that engage the learner the better.

#4 - Use color therapy. Color works on many levels. Color can be used to organize, to grab our attention, and it can impact our mood.

The last 3 suggestions are below...but you will need to click through to the post to learn more about each.

#5 - Exaggerate.

#6 - Small bites, at one's own pace.

#7 - Spaced repetition.

Are You Missing This Piece to Enhance Student Learning? | Haskayne Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it

If you have worked in any educational environment from elementary school, higher education, or corporate training, then you have had students who consistently struggle with a topic, skill, or prerequisite knowledge that they must learn in order to be successful. Likewise, many of those same students struggle to motivate themselves to learn the material they are struggling with.Traditionally, we have relied on more passive forms of resources (i.e. textbooks, journals, news articles, videos,

Check out three versions of Bloom's Taxonomy in this visualization. It includes the original Bloom's, the revised Bloom's, and adds on the Digital Bloom's, which provides a range of suggestions as to how students may demonstrate each level. This is another visual that you may want to share with other teachers in your school.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, April 5, 2014 5:21 PM

I love the clarity of the digital verbs! I think the specific content of the "doing" might allow for a bit of repositioning in the  chart, but it's certainly a great starting point in analyzing the tasks and output of a lesson.

MOOCs and the Gartner Hype Cycle: A very slow tsunami

MOOCs and the Gartner Hype Cycle: A very slow tsunami | Haskayne Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it

A lot can change in a year. Twelve months ago, the traditional universities were doomed, condemned to irrelevance by an onslaught of MOOCs. Each new technology goes through five phases: a) the Technology Trigger, b) the Peak of Inflated Expectations, c) the Trough of Disillusionment, d) the Slope of Enlightenment, and finally e) the Plateau of Productivity.

This is a very balanced article describing the impact of MOOCs on higher education.  What do you think about the timeline the author has proposed? Is it a tsunami that we just can't envision yet?  If so, how are we preparing for its arrival.  Are we making the adjustments required to ride the wave?
