The Most Important Moment in Reading Comprehension

The Most Important Moment in Reading Comprehension | iEduc | Scoop.it
Read slowly, connect with the sentences, and you will arrive at the "aha" moment of understanding

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, May 7, 2014 5:13 PM

A reading comprehension passage is not just one entity to be read at the same level of attention and focus throughout. A passage is quite varied, and an active reader will give different levels of focus to different parts of the passage.

For example, it is crucial that you begin reading a passage slowly. Understanding the first several sentences can be vital to your ability to connect with the reading as a whole. If you begin too quickly and force yourself to keep pushing on, you will likely become disconnected and feel you are not engaged by the passage.

On the other hand, if you begin more slowly and interact with the passage, you are likely to become much more engaged and have a far better understanding of the reading. After all, this is reading comprehension, with an emphasis on “comprehension.”

Try this technique as you begin a reading comprehension passage: First, read slower than you normally would. Make sure your attention is focused on the passage and stop after each sentence

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 28, 2014 1:42 PM

"A robust LMS should be able to do the following:

  • Centralize and automate administration
  • Use self-service and self-guided services
  • Assemble and deliver learning content rapidly
  • Consolidate training initiatives on a scalable web-based platform
  • Support portability and standards
  • Personalize content and enable knowledge reuse

One should be able to use LMS for hosting

  • Pre-recorded content in text, picture, and multimedia.
  • Interactive contents like flash, SCORM
  • Live classroom or pre-recorded classroom

LMS should help the educators with

  • Assessing the student/end users
  • Taking feed backs
  • Letting them submit and share their work
  • Collaborate with the peers
  • Track student progress
  • Generate reports

LMS should have following to help the students/learners

  • Institutive design and easy navigation
  • Preferably built on web 2.0 (e-learning 2.0)
  • Supports application integration with other content management applications
  • Access from different mobile devices"
I would also add that it should be safe, keeping students' work private. 
Germain Anthony's curator insight, June 7, 2015 9:56 PM

An effective LMS is really central to a good ICT in education strategy. Given the many constraints in my part of the world -  and Funding is by no means least - it would be interesting to know if any particular LMS would be a good solution for our context.
