New Research: Students Benefit from Learning That Intelligence Is Not Fixed

New Research: Students Benefit from Learning That Intelligence Is Not Fixed | Knowledge Engineering | Scoop.it

"Teaching students that intelligence can grow and blossom with effort – rather than being a fixed trait they’re just born with – is gaining traction in progressive education circles. And new research from Stanford is helping to build the case that nurturing a “growth mindset” can help many kids understand their true potential."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 16, 10:58 PM

How can we help nurture a growth mindset? New research has been published shows that providing as little as "30-minute online intervention can spur academic gains for many students, particularly those with poor grades."

Learn more about the programs that were offered and about the gains that struggling students made based on the online intervention.

Carol Dweck is known for her research on growth mindset and this post provides up-to-date information that may make you consider creating a short presentation and discussion with students about the value of hard work and effort as well as various study techniques. It is important to remember that students of all ages need to be educated that they are able to learn.

What is 21st century education? - YouTube

"Our world is changing at an unprecedented pace. To prepare our students, lessons must go beyond the "3 R's" and foster 21st century skills. Skills like critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity will be essential for students to take on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead."

Audrey's curator insight, October 15, 3:22 PM

All this is true  so where do we start?  Children do not start learning when they go to school.  They start learning the moment their eyes open.  Parents can help their children activate their brains and create fantastic neural networks.  All children can encompass all the different styles of learning; Visual:; Auditory; Verbal; Kinaesthetic: -Using touch and taste to explore the information; Logical: a  mathematical approach to concepts; Interpersonal -Learning in groups; Intrapersonal - Learning  alone. Try some of the early learning from home school resources.

Use Stories in eLearning: 6 Tips to Bring Out Your Inner Storyteller

Use Stories in eLearning: 6 Tips to Bring Out Your Inner Storyteller | Knowledge Engineering | Scoop.it

"Stories have captivated us as a species since the dawn of man. Through stories, we have passed on traditions, remembered the past, and carried information across the millennia. 

And it's not just our ancestors who harnessed the power of stories, either. Stories still work to reach people, which is why we see businesses turning to the power of storytelling in branding efforts, marketing campaigns, corporate strategies, and even eLearning courses and business presentations."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 22, 11:08 PM

How can we engage eLearners? How about using storytelling techniques. Stories engage us and they will also engage students. This post explores this, providing an infographic as well as discussing the power of stories before moving on to explore ways to bring storytelling into eLearning. 

There are six components that are discussed:

1. Know your audience.

2. Use a structure.

3. Appeal to emotions.

4. Intensify the story with visuals.

5. Make the stories relevant to the course.

6. Pay attention to detail.

As always additional resources are linked to in most of the six components with more at the end of the post. The components shared in this post also apply to teaching in a face2fact classroom, or  blended classroom. As you work on new lessons this year consider using these components to help design the lesson.

Everybody likes a good story.

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, August 25, 8:00 PM

Do you work with older students? Then you will enjoy this article about storytelling in learning. Great for introducing studnets to the need to structure online presentations as well as traditional, writing tasks.


Reading a good online presentation (from TED maybe) and then asking students to map the presentation to the story outline in this article will reinforce this learning for them.


Let me know if you give this a go - I've done similar activities with videos and story structures in primary schools and the students loved investigating the hidden structure!

5 Killer eLearning Tips To Help You Dominate Content Chunking

5 Killer eLearning Tips To Help You Dominate Content Chunking | Knowledge Engineering | Scoop.it

"Reading content on the Internet has changed the way people process information, and nowhere is this change more obvious than in fields where design must adapt to new technology such as in eLearning. eLearning course creators need to refine their content to suit learners’ behavior and accessibility to training. This is where chunking comes into play."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 1, 5:56 PM

If you design a course, face2face or online, it is important to keep up with information on how people learn, and today we know that chunking information is critical. This post begins by describing what a chunk is and why they are important in learning. It them moves on to the five tips (quoted below):

1. Set a chunking limit

2. Chunk with coherance

3. Use the right formatting

4. Keep chunks short

5. Use the inverted pyramid method for for prioritization

Each of these is described in detail and many addional resources are included in the post. You will also find a SlideShare on the Basics of Content Chunking. If this concept is new to you it will provide additional information. However be aware that the number of items that can be held in short term memory varies, and the rule they use is not accurate for all people. A recent course I took on Coursera, Learning How To Learn, suggested that the number of items most people can keep in short term memory is four.
