Group work can harm memory – UKEdChat.com

Group work can harm memory – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
It’s probably one of the most commonly used strategies evident in classrooms around the world, but researchers from the University of Liverpool have concluded that group work can actually harm memory. In a joint study, psychologists from the University of Liverpool and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) have revealed that collaborating in a group to remember information is harmful...

Using a backchannel by @nikpeachey – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
In my first post in this series – Getting students’ attention – I mentioned the use of backchannels. This post should give you more information about the use of backchannels within the classroom. If you are working in a classroom where your students have internet connected devices, either through wifi or their mobile phone, using a backchannel can have a transformative impact on the way you can use technology with your students...

Building meaningful relationships in schools by @pruman21 – UKEdChat.com

Building meaningful relationships in schools by @pruman21 – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
From September, I am starting a new role. I am going to be a year group leader for year 5. This has come about relatively quickly since my return from mainstream and so I have spent some time over the summer reflecting on my practice and how I am going to develop and inspire the people I work with. One of those people is an NQT. My sister is also starting her first post as an NQT in another school. After speaking on the phone for half an hour this morning, I realised that some of the stuff that I was saying to her is probably some of the stuff that I will be saying to the NQT I will be working with...

Book: 45 Secrets That All High School Teachers Need to Know by @RichardJaRogers – UKEdChat.com

Book: 45 Secrets That All High School Teachers Need to Know by @RichardJaRogers – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
Mastering the art of teaching appears to be easier for some colleagues than others. Some teachers just seem to have a presence, gaining respect and credibility from students, colleagues and parents alike. Did they undergo some mysterious, magical training that wasn’t covered during your teacher training course? Well, no. They just have mastered how to manage their working relationships, using their personalities to generate rapport, which is respected by students of all age. It’s not rocket science – it’s far more complicated than that. Personality and behaviour clashes in classrooms are inevitable, but looking at all the different elements of daily interactions can help you gain respect from students and colleagues alike...

Disseminating Displays by @mrnickhart – UKEdChat.com

Disseminating Displays by @mrnickhart – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
Displays can take up vast areas of wall space and many hours of adults’ time, therefore teachers and leaders must be sure of the impact that they are having on learning so that what is on display is justified and not simply a waste of time and space. Put simply, before a display goes up, we must ask: What will this display do to improve outcomes for children? For this to be answered with any sort of reliability, the question must be framed within a sound knowledge of how children learn and what learning is – a change in long-term memory...

UKEdMag: Mobile phones in lessons? by @MsGlynn2014 – UKEdChat.com | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
I used to be a massive advocate of using mobile phones in lessons; the ways they could be used are just endless. I had students use them to research topics; find the answers to a question we didn’t know, even as voting devices. I used them just rarely enough that students didn’t take it as a given and rarely tried to use their phones for uses other than I intended...
