Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

“Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.” It is a standard of intellectual excellence required for full participation in social, economic, and political life of a given society. A statement by Michael Scriven & Richard Paul, presented at the 8th Annual International Conference on CriticalThinking and Education Reform, Summer 1987.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

" Does investing in presence and community, the two aspects key for both social media and online teaching success, translate to success in residential teaching? Is someone who is good at social media also more likely to be good in a physical classroom? Possibly, but not always. There are perfomative elements to classroom teaching (particularly lecturing) that do not translate well into the social media or online teaching environments. Someone who is really good at social media or online teaching is someone who is committed to being part of a larger conversation."

I believe that online courses are an important component of our curricula, but it is not a simple task transitioning from teaching in the classroom to online, and many faculty are not prepared to put in the effort to be successful in doing so. Retention rates are lower, as students always believe they can make time, but somehow time slips away. Therefore there must be more focus on engagement. That is time-consuming for the instructor and the students. Secondly students learn in different ways, so simply posting some instructional material will usually not allow ALL students to learn. Either we must supplement the online learning with some F2F time (as in a hybrid course), or we must proceed to adaptive learning where the student's learning is assessed, and only if they meet the passing criteria can they proceed to the next lesson. If they don't pass, they must be offered some

How long does it take to speak a language?

I believe that learning a foreign language is an established training. I've spent my whole life working on mastering languages. We have to practice every day and should communicate with natives as often as possible. If we do not have the time or a chance, we will lose our conversational skills. They say practice makes perfect; whatever I think about this slogan, it seems to be true. At the same time, I am aware of the fact that I will never speak like a native. For me, the most noteworthy is communication. In my view, pronunciation is significant as long as the meaning is concerned. Nowadays we talk about “standard English” which has been used internationally. Many people want to talk like a native. I would like to announce that accents are acceptable as long as they are understandable. I never force learners to sound like native speakers, simply because they are not, besides I am also not a native English teacher. We must teach towards intelligibility, rather than a 'native' accent. Accent reduction in my opinion means increasing correct and easily understandable accent. Moreover, I use a lot of songs in my teaching. Through songs, students discover the natural stretching and compacting of the stream of English speech. Students may orally summarize the spirit or matter of a song or give oral presentations about a song or musician. Many songs tell a story, and these stories can be rewritten or retold to practice narrative or summarizing skills. This method works for my learners exceptionally well. Generally, I think that we learn languages to communicate, and accurate delivery is not the most valuable skill to develop. All in all, everybody needs to improve communication skills, and it is an entire lifetime job, including native speakers. Therefore from my point of view, the answer to the question - how long does it take to speak a language? – is…. It takes a lifetime.

Bad News for PowerPoint Users | Eric Bergman

Bad News for PowerPoint Users | Eric Bergman | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it
Researchers at Purdue University have some bad news for the 40 million people worldwide who deliver “standard” PowerPoint presentations each and every day.

When PowerPoint is used, the researchers concluded, the audience retains nearly 30 per cent less than if presenters eliminate PowerPoint and simply talk to their audience.

In other words, by simply turning off your projector and using your slides as notes, you can significantly enhance your communication effectiveness.

Via Jeff Domansky
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

What do you think about that;

"Students who weren’t exposed to PowerPoint scored 29 per cent higher on the quiz in recalling oral information, and achieved higher overall scores with the recall of all information. “The presence of PowerPoint negatively affected the recall of auditory information,” the researchers concluded, adding that “graphic scores reveal there was no notable gain when using PowerPoint to display graphic information.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

"The educated person is self-reflective and self-aware. The educated person knows many things, of course, but she recognizes there are many things she does not know. To be educated is to be humbled by the enormity of the world and the limits of even the most talented individual.

The “universal” root of “university” is the recognition of how enormous the world and its elements are. The educated person does not think he can master everything, or even a fraction of it. He seeks to make some sense of the enormity, to chart worthwhile pathways and to find meaning that gives the journey enduring value."

A Comprehensive Framework For Student Motivation

Via Beth Dichter
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

For educators, student motivation is one of the pillars of a academic performance. While the terms are sometimes misunderstood–and risk becoming cliche as we continue to talk about them topically rather than specifically–student motivation and student engagement are prime movers in the learning process. Without either, teaching is an uphill battle.

Terry Heick takes the image (as shown above) and relates the 8 key ideas to 8 "core drives of student motivation." Each one is described by Yu-kai Chou (who created this graphic)  and followed by a section called Educator Takeaways and a What if (which is related to education). The eight core drives are:

1) Epic Meaning & Calling

2) Development & Accomplishment

3) Empowerment of Creativity & Feedback

4) Ownership & Possession

5) Social Influence & Relatedness

6) Scarcity & Impatience

7) Unpredictability & Curiosity

8) Loss & Avoidance

The description provided by Yu-Kai Chou relates to gaming, but Terry Heick the links it to education in the Educator Takeways. He then provides a look at how this interpretation could help move us in new directions in our classroom. Why is this important? It has the potential to help us create better assessments, lessons, units and learning models. This is another post that provides much food for thought.

8 Core Drives Of Student Motivation - gleaned from research on gaming

1) Epic Meaning & Calling

2) Development & Accomplishment

3) Empowerment of Creativity & Feedback

 

4) Ownership & Possession

Educator Takeaways? Space, place, voice, and choice are among the principles of student-centered learning. A sense of agency can be both empowering and overwhelming for students.


5) Social Influence & Relatedness

Educator takeaways? How can we design learning so that students need to connect to clarify a need for knowledge, to create knowledge, or to share knowledge? Pushed further, how does social influence change the knowledge and competencies we choose to value?


6) Scarcity & Impatience

Yu-kai Chou explains, “This is the drive of wanting something because you can’t have it….”

 

7) Unpredictability & Curiosity

8) Loss & Avoidance

What if….we could somehow design a unit, for example, that “forced” the student to “start over” if they made certain mistakes, but through other principles of student motivation outlined above, they were somehow motivated to do so?
