 I watched the same episode of the TV show Bull. We do put more into things we think we have invested time in building. As teachers, the same might be said about the relationships we form with children. That seems essential to the whole teaching project.

A Learning Secret: Don’t Take Notes with a Laptop

A Learning Secret: Don’t Take Notes with a Laptop | Education and Training | Scoop.it

When students take notes using laptops they tend to take notes verbatim, writing down every last word uttered by their professor.
Obviously it is advantageous to draft more complete notes that precisely capture the course content and allow for a verbatim review of the material at a later date.  Only it isn’t. 

 

New research by Pam Mueller and Daniel Oppenheimer demonstrates that students who write out their notes on paper actually learn more.  Across three experiments, Mueller and Oppenheimer had students take notes in a classroom setting and then tested students on their memory for factual detail, their conceptual understanding of the material, and their ability to synthesize and generalize the information.  Half of the students were instructed to take notes with a laptop, and the other half were instructed to write the notes out by hand.  As in other studies, students who used laptops took more notes. 

 

In each study, however, those who wrote out their notes by hand had a stronger conceptual understanding and were more successful in applying and integrating the material than those who used took notes with their laptops.

How Conventional Wisdom can Get in the Way of Achievement

How Conventional Wisdom can Get in the Way of Achievement | Education and Training | Scoop.it
We should practice visualizing failure rather that success. Marvin Minski, the pioneer in Artificial Intelligence (AI), also said there is tremendous value in negative knowledge. For example, looking to never make mistakes. In space, “there is no problem so bad that you can’t make it worse,” says Colonel Chris Hadfield. For over five months or about 4,000 hours, the Canadian Astronaut sent out daily greetings on Twitter from aboard the International Space Station (ISS)—“Good morning, Earth.” Preparation is crucial for space missions, but also in life. There's a lot we can learn from astronauts about problem solving. And it's not just being able to anticipate external events and react to unexpected glitches in real time, but also avoiding personal error. Thinking in terms of what could go wrong helps us adopt the mindset that we can and should learn all the time, and the value of sweating the smal

22 Mindfulness Exercises, Techniques & Activities For Adults (+ PDF's) | Education and Training | Scoop.it
People who meditate are happier, healthier, and more successful than those who don’t. Those amazing benefits of practicing meditation and mindfulness make you want to try it yourself.

Good chance you have already tried meditation or mindfulness before. Maybe you decided – after a few frustrating attempts – that you must be one of those people with an errant mind that just won’t follow instructions. This is a limiting belief. Like any skill, mindfulness takes practice. Try it again!

Now don’t roll your eyes. Sometimes the only thing standing between our goals and us is a little bit of direction. Hopefully, this article can provide the direction you need to give mindfulness a try in your own life or in your therapy or coaching sessions. Let’s dive in!

The Teacher Curse No One Wants to Talk About

The Teacher Curse No One Wants to Talk About | Education and Training | Scoop.it

This curse has implications for all teachers:

We do not remember what it is like to not know what we are trying to teach.


We cannot relive the difficult and lengthy process that learning our content originally took.


As a result, we end up assuming that our lesson's content is easy, clear, and straightforward. We assume that connections are apparent and will be made effortlessly. Assumptions are the root cause of poor instruction.

Giving feedback, particularly constructive feedback, is often a stressful task. As counterintuitive as it may seem, giving feedback to a top performer can be even tougher. Top performers may not have obvious development needs and in identifying those needs, you can sometimes feel like you’re being nitpicky or over-demanding. In addition, top performers may not […]

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies | #Research | Education and Training | Scoop.it


Society has ingrained in us “a monkish conception of what learning is, of you sitting with your books in your cell,” Carey told MindShift. It’s a ritual of self-discipline, isolation and blocks of repetitive practice, whether in math, vocabulary, piano or tennis. But that traditional ideal has psychological downsides. Often, “you feel like you haven’t done it right or you haven’t done enough of it,” he said. “It causes a lot of anxiety because of what we think we should be doing.” For many students, learning has become a high-stress burden.
