Getting It Wrong: Surprising Tips on How to Learn: Scientific American

Getting It Wrong: Surprising Tips on How to Learn: Scientific American | Keep learning | Scoop.it

People remember things better, longer, if they are given very challenging tests on the material, tests at which they are bound to fail. In a series of experiments, they showed that if students make an unsuccessful attempt to retrieve information before receiving an answer, they remember the information better than in a control condition in which they simply study the information. Trying and failing to retrieve the answer is actually helpful to learning. It’s an idea that has obvious applications for education, but could be useful for anyone who is trying to learn new material of any kind.

"We Prepare Children to Learn How to Learn" | Keep learning | Scoop.it

We’ve become so dependent on the test to tell us about our students that we know less and less about who they really are. And without really knowing them, how can we help them reach their individual potentials?

probleem bij mij: wanneer je een annotation maakt, verschijnt die wel direct op het scherm van de gekoppelde pc, maar pas ruim een seconde later op het scherm van de iPad. Dat maakt schrijven/tekenen op het iPad-scherm erg lastig.
Harry Dubois's comment, September 26, 2011 12:37 AM
@lpijls - misschien ligt dit aan je verbinding tussen je iPad en het netwerk? Hebben andere gebruikers van Splashtop ditzelfde probleem?
lpijls's comment, September 26, 2011 7:11 AM
Ik heb een hele goede en snelle N Wifi-verbinding, lijkt het probleem dus niet te zijn. Zijn er gebruikers die geen grote vertraging ervaren op verschijnen van je tekenbeweging op het iPad-scherm?

We Can't Teach Students to Love Reading - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Keep learning | Scoop.it

"In 2005, Wendy Griswold, Terry McDonnell, and Nathan Wright, sociologists from Northwestern University, published a paper concluding that while there was a period in which extraordinarily many Americans practiced long-form reading, whether they liked it or not, that period was indeed extraordinary and not sustainable in the long run. "We are now seeing such reading return to its former social base: a self-perpetuating minority that we shall call the reading class."
