The study found that walking indoors or outdoors similarly boosted creative inspiration. The act of walking itself, and not the environment, was the main factor. A person walking indoors – on a treadmill in a room facing a blank wall – produced twice as many creative responses compared to a person sitting down.

Med Kharbach: Today I am introducing you to a set of awesome tools that allow users to easily select any part of a text and hear it in the voice and accent they want. These tools can be very helpful for language teachers. Students can use them to improve their pronunciation and develop their reading skills. All these tools are easy to use and above all free of charge. Most of these tools are extensions that you can install on your browser.

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns | Integrating technology and teaching and learning | Scoop.it

"When you’re standing in front of a classroom of students who’re not quite sure they even want to be in your class, much less pay attention to what’s being said, things like neuroscience, research studies, and teaching the way the brain learns are an abstraction.

Yet, brain-targeted teaching can engage and excite students because it taps into factors that stimulate the brain, grab the attention, and set the stage for learning."

strong>Referencing Beth Dichter's insight:What if we were able to design our curriculum to support the way the brain learns? Would our students be more engaged in class? Learn about this new model, Teach the Way the Brain Learns, in this post. There is a short discussion about some of the concepts as well as six brain targets, each of which includes a brief neuroscience explanation as well as a "translation" so that you will understand how to implement each target in your classroom. What are some of the targets? Brain Target 1: Establish the emotional climate for learning What does this mean? "Stress impedes learning." Make connections with students and then begin the lesson. Brain Target 2: Creating the Physical Learning Environment What does this mean? The physical space impacts our students. Changing the space may help them learn. What changes could you make in your classroom? Four additional brain targets are provided. You may also want to check out the website Brain Targeted Teaching (http://www.braintargetedteaching.org/) where you will find additional information as well as sample units that utilize this method (and a template to create your own lessons).

* developing academic mindset

John Pearce's curator insight, February 4, 8:55 PM

One of the problems with mass adoption of education models is the way in which the models are 'massaged' to suit purposes other than what they do best. Most models have been developed to describe and categorise behaviours. They're often great for use as the basis for generating discussion. Where they to often fall down is when they become the basis for a curriculum guide into which practice is inserted according to a perceived hierarchy.

 

So it is with SAMR where writers such as Richard Wells are beginning to question some uses of the model. 

Chris Carter's curator insight, February 26, 7:20 PM

What character traits help people lead more satisfied lives?
