Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, June 15, 12:31 PM
When we brainstorm, we often fall into the trap of ending up with everyone agreeing, even if they do not. It is a risk in Socratic circles. Do we end up, as teachers, bringing students back to what we want them to think with our questions? Groupthink can end up limiting creativity and learning.

Fundamentally it comes down to recognizing this: Not achieving the desired outcome on a given iteration is a learning moment, not a true "failure."

We need to be careful we do not oversimplify a complex state of being. What does life-long learning mean? For whose benefit does it exist?

Ineffective assessments, part VI: More digital access needed | Education and Training | Scoop.it
 Click here to read all of the articles in our Ineffective Assessments series. All facets of education are being impacted by the rapid evolution of technology and assessments are not immune. Not only should educators be able to tap into digital resources for assessment preparation, but students should be able to take assessments using the technology that makes them most comfortable. In other words, we need to ditch the Scantron forms and No. 2 pencils and give our kids access to the right technology to make them the most comfortable with the tests they are taking and to streamline the …

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 15, 11:14 AM
Let's not sell learning. It is not a commodity. It is something we each engage in and find meaning through. Teachers are responsible for teaching and creating inviting settings where students will want to engage and grow. This means teaching is communicating with students: talking, listening, and reflecting.

Why Teacher Education Should Include Neuroscience

Why Teacher Education Should Include Neuroscience | Education and Training | Scoop.it
The neuroscience of how the brain learns and what influences the most successful brain acquisition and application of learning should be included in all teacher education programs.

Teachers need to be prepared with foundational knowledge to understand, evaluate, and apply the neuroscience of learning. With this knowledge they will be able to recognize future implications from this rapidly expanding field of research to increase the effectiveness of their teaching and build and sustain students’ joy of learning.

Actually, handwriting does matter, but not in the most direct way, producing. There is evidence that handwriting helps develop the creative side of the brain.

From a phenomenological perspective, writing also produces text to be re-interpreted continuously over time. Certainly, digital tools can do the same, but is it the same?

And yet, learning psychology research and psycholinguistic studies continue to show the superiority of rote memorization over all  other learning paradigms in terms of accuracy, memorability, and reaction time. 
Jerry Busone's curator insight, June 2, 8:35 AM

Good  tips ... most programs don't "develop" people anymore ... too busy with mindless tasks and forget that learn for learn doesn't work... it takes a  mindful approach to deliver a variety of learning around one topic multiple ways and most important real applications to get learning to stick

So many people spend time learning something, and then don't apply that knowledge in a different context. This article explains the steps we can take to really learn something, which is key to being able to use that knowledge in everything that we do.

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Storytelling in its way can have just as much complexity as music or mathematics. That we don’t really understand this craft – or that this is a craft – is partly because of the romantic myth of “inspiration” peddled by authors as much as anyone. It is taught (up to a point) in creative writing degrees – but it can be simplified enough to be taught to schoolchildren as well.

The Key to Improving Teaching and Leading

Making a daily practice of visiting classrooms, observing briefly, and talking with teachers has the greatest potential to improve student learning, help professionals grow, and help schools become more effective learning organizations.
I've come to this conclusion by studying an unlikely role model: Toyota. At Toyota, continuous improvement and employee development happen primarily through interactions between mentors and mentees—employees and their supervisors—on the factory floor or wherever the work is being done. We might assume that leadership in a manufacturing company would be rigidly top-down, numbers-driven, and directive toward frontline staff. But Toyota's focus on conversation is precisely what sets it apart from its competitors.
