What Is The Cognitive Load Theory? A Definition For Teachers - | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Generally, the Cognitive Load Theory is a theory about learning built on the premise that since the brain can only do so many things at once, we should be intentional about what we ask it to do.

How To Kill Learner Curiosity In 12 Easy Steps.

 

Killing a learner’s natural curiosity doesn’t happen overnight. It can take as long as 12 years, and in some rare cases even that isn’t long enough.

 

Learning environments focused on standards, assessment, and compliance allow for the implementation of research-based strategies in pursuit of streams of data to prove that learning is happening. Curiosity is nice, but it’s a monumental challenge to measure.

The Leader as Coach: 3 Times When Coaching Is Not the Answer

The Leader as Coach: 3 Times When Coaching Is Not the Answer | Education and Training | Scoop.it

In a couple of my recent posts I’ve talked about managers using coach-like skills in their conversations with direct reports. Doing this often makes conversations more impactful and effective.

But there are times when using a coaching style is not appropriate—when, in fact, it can be counterproductive and cause the other person to become frustrated.

“Coaching” isn’t a new leadership term. Chances are you’ve already come across it in some form or another. In fact, research done in 2006 by leadership development firm BlessingWhite found that 73 percent of managers had some form of coaching training, but only 23 percent of people being coached (fewer than one in four!) thought that the coaching had a positive effect on their job.

It doesn’t always have to be a struggle — there are easy ways for managers to become more coach-like. The essence of coaching lies in helping others, and in unlocking their potential. So if you’re already committed to being helpful and it hasn’t yet led you to coaching more often, read on to learn my best tips for getting there.

When you organize your day with these principles in mind, you will have a new, improved day sculpted to manage information overload. There are many more ways to build strategic unfocus into your day. But to start this exercise, simply break up your workday into 45-minute segments with 15 minutes in between each segment. Exercise at the beginning or end of your day. During your first break, do proactive filtering. In all other breaks, check in with yourself to see if anything is disturbing you. Use reactive filtering (TMI) and thought substitution (positive for negative) early. When things start getting overwhelming, go for a walk to make connections or use local feedback control. Practice using these techniques often, and you will likely increase your brain’s efficiency significantly, and you may improve your quality time at home as well.

August , 2017
In her celebrated book ‘Mindset: The New Psychology of Success’, Stanford university psychologist Carol S. Dweck makes a strong case backed up with  scientific evidence for the power of mindset in shaping one’s success or failure in almost every facet of our life.Those with a fixed mindset mentality tend to be limited in their learning scope believing that their inner traits and abilities are biologically determined. On the other hand, people with a growth mindset embrace change and tend to learn more from life experiences because for them concepts such as skills, abilities and competencies are not fixated  and can be developed through a process of error and trial.

In today’s post, we are sharing with you this handy infographic we created based on Marcus Guido’s post ’10 Ways Teachers Can Instill a Growth Mindset in Students’. Guido walks you through the different strategies you can use with your students to cultivate a growth mindset in your class and ultimately enhance students learning.  Read his post to learn more about each of the strategies featured here.

Diana Jaimes V.'s curator insight, September 2, 9:50 AM
First, this article led me to consider mindset shaping as a powerful tool for learning as any other aspect of life. It explains the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset that normally refers to people constantly learning from any experience. Since their capabilities are not fixed, these people are never closed to a learning experience and always use the trial and error learning. They proposed an infographic with several strategies to foster a growth mindset in our students some of the steps include the use of diverse teaching strategies, explanations of purposes of abstract thinking, teaching values, among others.

Imagination's Role in the New Culture of Learning

Imagination's Role in the New Culture of Learning | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Learning is an adventure in imagination where context plays a leading role. We have a harder time understanding our world without understanding our worldview. Sometimes we refuse to take in new information because it conflicts with the way we see the world. In Einstein: His Life and Universe Walter Isaacson describes how the scientist came up with some of his theories. He says: Einstein relished what he called Gedankenexperimente, ideas that he twirled around in his head rather than in a lab. That’s what teachers call daydreaming, but if you’re Einstein you get to call them Gedankenexperimente. As these thought experiments remind us, creativity is based on imagination. If we hope to inspire kids to love science, we need to do more than drill them in math and memorized formulas. We should stimulate their minds’ eyes as well. Even let them daydream… [The] ability to visualize the unseen ha

They want to incorporate the technology they love into their classroom experiences as much as they can. In short, they have just as high a set of expectations of their educators as their educators have of them.


How Are Educators Responding?

Cognitive Load Theory: Research that Teachers Really Need to Understand

To improve student performance, teachers need to understand the evidence base that informs and helps improve their practice. An area of research with significant implications for teaching practice is cognitive load theory. Cognitive load theory was recently described by British educationalist Dylan Wiliam as ‘the single most important thing for teachers to know’ (Wiliam 2017).

Grounded in a robust evidence base, cognitive load theory provides theoretical and empirical support for explicit models of instruction. Research in cognitive load theory demonstrates that instructional techniques are most effective when they are designed to accord with how human brains learn and use knowledge.

Teaching Students To Ask Questions For 21st Century Success | Getting Smart

Teaching Students To Ask Questions For 21st Century Success | Getting Smart | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Dr. Margy Jones-Carey - Teaching students to ask questions enables them to become thinkers, processors and to carry these skills into the 21st Century.

I was recently preparing for a presentation to educators in Brazil on 21st-century skills, global competency and problem-based learning. As I was preparing for the presentation, I did some research on the future careers of today’s students. The U.S. Department of Labor report from 2013 states that 65% of today’s students will work in careers that have yet to be developed. That means that we must teach students skills to solve problems we’ve never seen before and won’t see for years.


As educators, we are faced with the challenge to identify skills and dispositions that can be transported into unknown jobs and careers. I came to the final realization that to be prepared to be productive members of the 21st century, students need to be four things:


Self-modifying 
Self-managed 
Self-evaluating 
Self-directed

Lisa Bu was born and raised in Hunan, China. Before joining TED in 2011, she spent seven years as a talk show producer and a digital media content director at Wisconsin Public Radio. She's also a computer programmer, with a PhD in journalism and an MBA in information systems from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as a BA in Chinese from Nanjing University in China. After coming to the U.S. it was a word that helped her redefine her relationships with her parents -- “honor” vs. the “obey” she knew in her culture. Bu believes we can read creatively and comparatively to uncover new horizons.

The Antilibrary: On the Value of Unread Books

The Antilibrary: On the Value of Unread Books | Education and Training | Scoop.it
“Because learning does not consist only of knowing what we must or we can do, but also of knowing what we could do and perhaps should not do.” [Umberto Eco] The more we learn, the more we realize how much more we have not explored and understood. In the same way we have untapped potential, the books we haven't yet read represent our potential learning. This is a concept author Nicholas Nassim Taleb called an antilibrary, with reference to Umberto Eco's private library. Eco was an Italian author and professor of semiotics* whose first novel, The Name of the Rose, catapulted him to international fame, selling more than 50 million copies and counting. A prolific writer, his works spanned stories for children, pieces of literary criticism, academic texts on semiotics, studies of everything from medieval aesthetics to modern media.
