How the Brain Learns: "Timing is everything" - US News and World Report

How the Brain Learns: "Timing is everything" - US News and World Report | If you lead them, they will follow! | Scoop.it

By Marlene Cimons, National Science Foundation

 

If a teacher puts out too much new information in the final minutes of a class, students might have trouble “getting” it.

 

If you have a final exam in six weeks, it might be better to study for it now and then again next week, rather than tonight and tomorrow.

 

“It depends, to some extent, on when you have to remember it,” says Gary Cottrell, a professor in the computer science and engineering department at the University of California at San Diego.

 

“Cramming the night before a test is okay, but if it’s something you need to know a month from now, spacing between study sessions makes a big difference.”

 

"Timing is everything!"

 

In other words, timing is everything.

This is the underpinning for the work of the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center, whose goal is to understand the impact of timing in learning across brain and social systems.

 

“Time is an understudied variable,” says Cottrell, who directs the center.

 

“Timing is crucial in learning from the synaptic levels--connections between neurons--to long-time scales, like months and years.”

Leadership Is a Conversation

Leadership Is a Conversation | If you lead them, they will follow! | Scoop.it

In developing our model, we have identified four elements of organizational conversation that reflect the essential attributes of interpersonal conversation: intimacy, interactivity, inclusion, and intentionality. Leaders who power their organizations through conversation-based practices need not (so to speak) dot all four of these i’s.

Maximize Learning: Practice Four-to-One

Four-to-One

 

In the mid 1970s I worked with Fran Tarkenton and Aubrey Daniels at Behavioral Systems Inc. We took the research of Dr. Ogden Lindsley, who studied the effects of positive reinforcement versus negative comments by teachers in the classroom. He found that the ideal ratio that maximized learning was 3.57 positive to 1 negative. We rounded it off and called it Four-to-One.

 

We encouraged plant supervisors to record their positive and negative comments to employees, and too often it was one to four, in other words four times the number of negative comments than positive.
