10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

What The Happiest People Know About Work

What The Happiest People Know About Work | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

Study, work hard, and you will be successful.

 

This was the mantra repeated by educators throughout my youth. None of them added "be happy" to the success equation.

 

But a growing body of research in positive psychology and neuroscience is demonstrating that happiness is the secret ingredient to success. It turns out, our brains are more engaged, creative, productive, and resilient when in a positive state.

 

All this unhappiness comes with a high price tag to businesses, costing more than $550 billion a year in lost productivity. In his book, Donovan identifies 60 simple steps individuals can take to improve their happiness and get back on the path to success. Here are six of the top things happy workers do:

Doing what you love can make you happy-- finding a way to make money while doing what you love is even better! 

Graeme Reid's curator insight, April 10, 2014 7:55 PM

If you don't enjoy what you do it is very difficult to be successful.  There are ways to re-frame the way that you look at things to help you focus on what is important to you.

Avoiding energy sappers is what led me to retire from teaching. It was not the students and parents. It was the bureaucratic and technocratic nonsense that went on in school which passes itself off as education.

A Chaotic (But Useful) Guide To Making Multile-Choice Questions - Edudemic | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"The handy infographic below is a fun look at making useful and targeted multiple choice questions, and while it is fun to look at, it points out a few important tidbits that struck me as being important to remember whether you’re using technology to assess your students or whether you’re doing it the old fashioned way. Keep reading to learn more."

This post explores multiple choice questions, providing some background information that may help you design better questions for assessment. Did you know that (info below quoted from post):

* Questions in a multiple choice assessment are called the “Stem”.

* For each question, there is a key answer, and distractors.

* The distractors should be plausible answers, true statements (when possible) , and about the same length as the key.

Here is a visual that may help your students with critical thinking skills. The post in Edutopia provides addtional information on this and the image came via twitter and that link is at the end of this post.

As you read the five questions you may find that might change a few. For example, if you are working with younger students you might want to change the first question to "What do you think you know?" and you might also want to change the fourth question to "What more can you tell me?"

Do you have other ideas? Share them by adding a comment.

The link to the visual is at https://twitter.com/shannonclark7/status/404336242625892354/photo/1/large
