​Brain Science and Education: How Much Should Teachers Know? (EdSurge News)

​Brain Science and Education: How Much Should Teachers Know? (EdSurge News) | iPads in the French (FLE) classroom | Scoop.it
Jasselle Cirino’s classroom might surprise those accustomed to traditional lectures. Instead of being told to sit quietly and listen, her first graders absorb material through physical movement, vocal exercises and group activities meant to indulge in students’ tendencies to socialize, move and speak.

“We’re teaching to use multiple parts of the brain to better engage students and retain more information,” says Cirino, a former classroom teacher now training for Reading Recovery, a nonprofit tutoring program for first-grade students.

The approach is something Cirino and other educators refer to as “Whole Brain Teaching.” It involves techniques—like assigning arm gestures to instructional content to engage students’ motor cortex, or call and response phrases that grab attention and tap into students’ prefrontal cortex—specifically designed to tickle different parts of the brain while learning. And it's becoming more popular among scientists and educators alike, who believe teachers—and therefore students—can benefit from a better understanding of how the brain works.

Yet many typical teacher training programs today don’t offer much training or exposure to neuroscience, which begs the question: What should teachers know about the brain?

What the Heck Is Inquiry-Based Learning?

What the Heck Is Inquiry-Based Learning? | iPads in the French (FLE) classroom | Scoop.it
Inquiry-based learning is more than asking a student what he or she wants to know. It’s about triggering curiosity. And activating a student’s curiosity is, I would argue, a far more important and complex goal than the objective of mere information delivery.

Nevertheless, despite its complexity, inquiry-based learning can be somehow easier on teachers, too. True, it’s seemingly easier because it transfers some responsibilities from teachers to students, but it’s really easier because releasing authority engages students.

Teachers who use inquiry-based learning combat the “dunno” -- a chronic problem in student engagement. 

Let’s face it, when you ask a student something like, “What do you want to know about _______?” you are often met with a shrug, or a, “dunno.” Inquiry-based learning, if front-loaded well, generates such excitement in students that neurons begin to fire, curiosity is triggered, and students can’t wait to become experts in answering their own questions.

The Transcendent Nature of Sir Ken Robinson in Global Education

The Transcendent Nature of Sir Ken Robinson in Global Education | iPads in the French (FLE) classroom | Scoop.it
Sweat slowly trickled down my temple. My feet were still racing yet my body lie in wait for the doors to open. Camera crew ready? Check! My sales pitch? No. I had gone through every scenario I could think of and yet I still felt drastically unprepared for my pitch.

My pitch to the world-renowned Sir Ken Robinson.

I was at the ASCD educational conference waiting for keynote speaker Sir Ken Robinson to arrive. My hope was to capture his thoughts about global education without stumbling over my words. This was the biggest and most prominent voice in education and I was seconds away from my chance.

As we waited, backstage, the doors opened with sparkling L.A. sunshine flashing through the opening, amidst the backdrop of a blackout of florescent exhibit hall lighting, revealing the silhouette we have all come to know.

It was the Sir Ken Robinson!
