How to Get Students to Work Harder

How to Get Students to Work Harder | How to teach online efectively? | Scoop.it
Some kids have an understandable worry that they don't belong in school. According to new research, changing this belief can help turn low-achievers into motivated students.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

" They found that among Latino, African American, and first-generation students who were given information to counter belonging uncertainty, 86 percent completed the credits, compared to 82 percent the years before and after the study (2011 and 2013). In contrast, the belonging messages had no significant impact on incoming white and Asian American students: 90 percent of them were on track after one semester, the same proportion as in the years before and after the study. The same pattern played out for students in the mindset and combined belonging/mindset groups. Conversely, in the control group that received only generic messages, there was no improvement in performance among African American, Latino and first-generation students."

Using grammar correctly could be challenging may be not for those who are English native speaker, but surely for those who learn English from scratch. English language and its difficulties can be very much puzzling. Although, a dictionary or software can assist learners but it cannot give accurate answer. In fact, word processing programs are not very much effective in correcting grammar errors completely.

'Sense of belonging' enhances the online learning experience

'Sense of belonging' enhances the online learning experience | How to teach online efectively? | Scoop.it
For the past couple of years Australian universities' enthusiasm for online learning has increased, following the lead of international universities in realising the potential of MOOCs to replace traditional…
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Online programs need to offer a balance of learning and socialisation activities where students can interact with each other.

Courses ideally:

Use online ice-breaker activities, such as online introductions at the start of the course, to encourage students to meet and interact in the virtual environment;

Make communication and collaboration between students part of assessment, such as group assignments and peer assessments;

Provide an online “student lounge” or encourage students to use Skype, Facebook or other networking sites to interact beyond the formal course;

Schedule and facilitate real-time learning sessions using virtual classroom technology.

Teacher presence also contributes to a sense of belonging in the online context.

Chronicle of Higher Education: Stop Accrediting Christian Colleges - Stand to Reason Blog

An article in the Chronicle of Higher Education argues that accreditation ought to be denied to Christian colleges that require professors to sign statements of faith or otherwise “draw lines around what is regarded as acceptable teaching and research.” This seems like an obvious next step in the current march...
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

By awarding accreditation to religious colleges, the process confers legitimacy on institutions that systematically undermine the most fundamental purposes of higher education. Skeptical and unfettered inquiry is the hallmark of American teaching and research. However, such inquiry cannot flourish—in many cases, cannot even survive—inside institutions that erect religious tests for truth. The contradiction is obvious….

British technology's biggest risk: A skills shortage - HITC Business

British technology's biggest risk: A skills shortage - HITC Business | How to teach online efectively? | Scoop.it
Britain's capital has firmly established itself on the global tech scene, but there remain some risks to its upward trajectory.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

British universities also need to transform into pipelines of tech talent - in the same way Stanford and Berkeley quench Silicon Valley's thirst for skilled graduates. While some of Britain's newer universities have embraced tech and coding, too many higher-education establishments continue to place a disproportionate focus on more conventional or humanities-based subjects. Furthermore, it is vital we ensure that those universities which do teach data skills are tuned into the tech industry, so the skills they offer are relevant and applicable to the working world.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

On the importance of mentorship

Another thing that holds our country back is that we have this culture of privacy around teaching. [American teachers] spend all of their day only with their students and they don't have exposure to their peers. In Japan, it's quite the opposite. They have [a] practice ... which really turns teaching into a public science. As many as a thousand teachers come from all across the country to watch a single lesson and then dissect it afterward.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 12, 10:45 AM

It is hard to say that students are less motivated per se. What I experienced, is many students used digital tools as toys and it was not always easy to have students understand the tools' roles in learning. Playing with the tools can be helpful, but being connected full-time as not always the best scenario. A key question is when do we begin to use digital tools in classrooms? Will it be different for different classrooms? Will it be different for different students in the same classroom?
