Math is fun, right? And very applicable to the 'real world', despite what all of those people who say they never use algebra - ever- tell you. But we all know it deep down: math and physics rule our lives.

The Touch-Screen Generation

The Touch-Screen Generation | Interesting 123 | Scoop.it

"In 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics updated its policy on very young children and media. In 1999, the group had discouraged television viewing for children younger than 2, citing research on brain development that showed this age group’s critical need for “direct interactions with parents and other significant care givers.” The updated report began by acknowledging that things had changed significantly since then. In 2006, 90 percent of parents said that their children younger than 2 consumed some form of electronic media. Nonetheless, the group took largely the same approach it did in 1999, uniformly discouraging passive media use, on any type of screen, for these kids. (For older children, the academy noted, “high-quality programs” could have “educational benefits.”) The 2011 report mentioned “smart cell phone” and “new screen” technologies, but did not address interactive apps. Nor did it broach the possibility that has likely occurred to those 90 percent of American parents, queasy though they might be: that some good might come from those little swiping fingers. To date, no body of research has definitively proved that the iPad will make your preschooler smarter or teach her to speak Chinese, or alternatively that it will rust her neural circuitry—the device has been out for only three years, not much more than the time it takes some academics to find funding and gather research subjects. So what’s a parent to do?" | via The Atlantic

"Do you know the actual theories of learning? A learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn, helping us understand this inherently complex process. There’s sub-levels of each theory, behavior and other categories … it’s complex. But it’s worth understanding. This helpful infographic does a solid job of breaking down the basics of learning theories in a visual and understandable format, including a section about connectivism in the digital age." | by Katie Lepi

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, May 7, 2013 3:49 PM

Adult learning is a vast area of educational research and probably one of the most complicated. Adults learn differently and have different strategies in learning. Adults Learning Theory and Principles explain in details these strategies and sheds more light on how adults cultivate knowledge.

 Talking about adult learning brings us to the concept of Andragogy. According to the article Malcolm Knowles an American practitioner and theorist of adult education, defined andragogy as “the art and science of helping adults learn”. Knowles identified the six principles of adult learning as:Adults are internally motivated and self-directedAdults bring life experiences and knowledge to learning experiencesAdults are goal orientedAdults are relevancy orientedAdults are practicalAdult learners like to be respectedTom Whitby wrote this great article " Pedagogy Vs Andragogy " in which he argued for using these same principles of adults learning in kids learning. I highly recommend this article to those of you interested in learning more about Andragogy. I am also sharing with you this awesome chart created by floridatechnet.org  featuring the differences between pedagogy and Andragogy.

Excelente e simples comparativo sobre diferenças de aprendizagem entre adultos e crianças. Sem dúvida, vale um inforgrafico aqui pra ilustrar !

Prof. Mark Levit's comment, July 21, 2013 10:11 AM
With my time now time divided between university classrooms and the commercial sector, this chart suggests both reason and hope. Higher education today promises job readiness but the customs, standards, and traditions of the education business make that an unlikely outcome. For example, the college students before whom I stand weekly are substantially more interested in, and learn from, my stories of client, employee, & vendor relations and conflict than what appears in their texts. Those stories get remembered and provide practical rather than traditionally academic reasons to learn. Most students learn critical thinking and other university-mandated disciplines when reasons for learning them become evident. But with life now operating on fast-forward in this era of the Internet, paradigm shifts, and the profit-challenged corporate sector, we no longer have the luxury of education's traditional and (perhaps) obsolete modalities. When we cater to students other than those who perceive college as permission to party for 4 (or more) years, eliminate the aggressive financial goals of the powerful dollar-starved multinational corporations to which we refer as "universities," when we acknowledge students must learn for the purpose of competing on a commercial world stage, we'll enjoy,nonce again, the goals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Simultaneously, we'll put our nation back on-track for renewed greatness.
