The trouble with transfer: How can we make learning more flexible? - David Didau: The Learning Spy

The trouble with transfer: How can we make learning more flexible? - David Didau: The Learning Spy | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
I define learning as the long-term retention of knowledge and skills and the ability to transfer between contexts. The retention bit is fairly straightforward and uncontroversial: if you can’t remember something tomorrow, can you really be said to have learned it? As Kirschner, Sweller & Clark put it, “If nothing has changed in long-term memory, nothing has
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
Transfer between contexts is hard and, as I’ve explained before, students might not necessarily be able to transfer from the context of one seat to another seat in the same classroom! It’s worth knowing that we can weaken students’ dependency on context by varying the conditions in which ideas are encoded and retrieved. We can also facilitate transfer by explicitly telling students that they will need to retrieve what they’re studying in a new context. Using concrete examples will also help. But probably the most important thing for teachers to know is that the more you know, the easier it is to transfer what you know to new contexts.

Letting Teachers Be Free

Letting Teachers Be Free | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
Educators must remain engaged and autonomous in order to do their jobs well and avoid burnout.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
A body of research illustrates the self-evident reality that students’ interest in what they’re learning is critical to their achievement. And student engagement, according to various studies, is often a direct result of teacher engagement. When Alice and I decided to teach outrageously, our attitudes about our work improved, which data suggests improved our students’ attitudes.

For long-term improvements, schools need to slow down

For long-term improvements, schools need to slow down | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
Pressure on schools to make rapid improvements discourages deeper thinking about long-term solutions. Education can learn a lot from "slow" movements.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
The intense pressures for short-term improvements, which requires school leaders and teachers to make important decisions quickly, discourages deeper consideration of how those decisions could affect students long-term. The need for fast change is at odds with the collaboration, reflection and evidence-based practice that is needed in order to promote equity in our schools. It is time to slow down.

Dinham on self-esteem and student learning

Dinham on self-esteem and student learning | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
‘We know that self-concept or self-esteem has a significant effect on student learning but the mistake we’ve made is to try and boost student self-esteem and self-concept artificially and that doesn’t work,’ Professor Stephen Dinham shares with Teacher editor Jo Earp in today’s video.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
If they’re getting regular feedback – developmental feedback as well as judgemental feedback – [that] they’re getting better and “this is how to get even better”, they’ll start to feel better about themselves and that will cycle into greater confidence, greater self-esteem and so on, and you get an upward cycle.’

Effective implementation of project-based learning

Effective implementation of project-based learning | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
A new research review offers some practical pointers for teachers and recommendations for successful adoption of the student-centred approach to project-based learning.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
When it comes to how teachers can best support PBL in the classroom, the paper discusses a US study where 12 teachers recognised as being experts in the instructional method were interviewed (Mergendoller & Thomas, 2005). Their advice for successful implementation and management included: being flexible with scheduling (and allowing for extensions to the project timeline); giving students a rubric before they start to help orient them; involving other teachers, parents and community members; and using a variety of assessment methods (including opportunities for reflection) where both individual and group performance can be recognised.

How to maintain the balance between boundaries and freedom in secondary school parenting

How to maintain the balance between boundaries and freedom in secondary school parenting | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
There are four key styles to parenting high school students, and parents will likely need to move between two of them as their children grow up.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
During secondary school, students will move through different stages of adolescence. Over this time they will experience enormous social, physical, emotional, and cognitive changes. In addition to the major academic task of completing school, students also have the major developmental task of establishing their autonomy, self-responsibility, and self-directedness. Meanwhile, parents will need to maintain a delicate balance between providing support as needed and “letting go” as needed.

New research shows there is still a long way to go in providing equality in education | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
The gap between the most and least advantaged areas in Australia is reflected in educational inequality.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
Children living in the most disadvantaged areas will average half the NAPLAN scores in reading, writing and numeracy tests than those living in the least disadvantaged areas. Children in these areas are also only half as likely to be enrolled in pre-school at age four, half as likely to attend pre-school for 15 hours or more, and seven times as likely to be vulnerable on two or more developmental domains in their first year of schooling.

Ability is the consequence not the cause of what children learn - David Didau: The Learning Spy

Ability is the consequence not the cause of what children learn - David Didau: The Learning Spy | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
The evidence on ability grouping appears relatively well-known. The EEF Toolkit summarise the research findings thus: Overall, setting or streaming appears to benefit higher attaining pupils and be detrimental to the learning of mid-range and lower attaining learners. On average, it does not appear to be an effective strategy for raising the attainment of disadvantaged
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
My advice is that for the most part, we should delay grouping pupils by ability for as long as possible. If some children are holding back the progress others of others because they have not mastered basic, foundational knowledge, they should be taken out for short durations to ensure they taught what they need to know and then returned to normal lessons.

Data makes planning easier

The best teachers know that good lesson planning is paramount. Furthermore, they understand that finding out what a student knows should be the basis of all planning. Unfortunately, in most schools, planning time is increasingly limited. Savvy teachers realize that using frequent quality assessments can help them quickly and concretely determine what a student knows. The data gathered from these assessments can reduce the planning time needed to design lessons that meet the needs of diverse students.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
Effective teachers use three questions to guide their daily practice: What do my students know? What do they need to know? How can I get them there? Assessment data helps teachers answer all three questions, allowing quick, focused planning that helps all students achieve academic success.

Motivating Young Adolescents

Adrian Bertolini's insight:
We can find part of the answer to that question by considering what common practices don't motivate young adolescents. If we think about what teens enjoy, we'll realize why being removed from physical education to double up on math and reading doesn't make kids eager. Neither does lack of choice about what to learn, or teachers who find their own stories more fascinating than their students do.
