Magical Kingdom of Learning

Magical Kingdom of Learning | Language and Linguistics | Scoop.it
Eleven-year old Joe struggled with temper tantrums. His anxieties drove him to physical violence and numerous school suspensions in Wales, United Kingdom. A year ago his uncontrolled outbursts were tempered after James McKeon, a school psychological counselor, began working with him using MakeBeliefsComix.com, one of the world’s most popular educational comic websites.

In this episode of The TEFL Show podcasts we chat with Russell Stannard of www.teachertrainingvideos.com about the whole idea of the flipped classroom. We start off by talking about using technology to give students feedback through audios and videos. We then discuss how 'flipping the classroom' through technology can be used to minimise the 'lecturing' aspects…

Emotions Directly Influence Learning and Memory Processes

Emotions Directly Influence Learning and Memory Processes | Language and Linguistics | Scoop.it
A groundbreaking new study at the University of Haifa has found for the first time that emotions are not only the product of the processing of information by the brain, but that they also directly influence processes of learning and memory in the brain. Dr. Shlomo Wagner of the Sagol Department of Neurobiology at the University of Haifa, who undertook the study, explains: “It turns out that different emotions cause the brain to work differently and on distinct frequencies.”

The main goal of the new study, which was published this February in the prestigious science journal eLife, was to identify the electrical activity that takes place in the brain during the formation of social memory. During the course of their work, the researchers – Dr. Wagner and Ph.D. Alex Tendler – discovered the scientific explanation behind the saying “you never get a second chance to make a first impression.” More importantly, they came to understand the connection between emotions and cognitive processes such as learning and memory.

-------------------------------------------

“It seems that when the emotion is social and positive, the brain tells the different areas to work according to one communication protocol. When a different emotion is involved, such a negative emotion of fear as in our experiment, the brain tells the same areas to use a different communication protocol. We will need to conduct additional studies, including studies on humans, in the future in order to understand the precise ramifications of each emotion on memory. But in broad terms,” Dr. Wagner concludes, “the implication is clear. Different emotions cause the brain to work differently, including in terms of cognitive processes such as learning and memory.”

With more than 50 regional dialects in Britain alone, this accent map proves how tricky understanding English can be. Know your Cockney from your Geordie? Take the quiz to find out.
Julie Cumming-Debrot's insight:

Everyone, everywhere on the planet has 'An Accent' - it's important to recognize this fact and know that 'it ain't gonna change' - so becoming familiar with some of them might actually help language learners to deal with them instead of 'avoiding' them.  This is indeed a challenging game - but the more you do it the better you will become.

For both teacher ore-service and inservice training, this is important, and needs to be paid more attention to.  We need more on methods, practical methods - but those that are based in solid research and are based on real evidence.

Sharon Berman's curator insight, February 13, 7:49 PM

Even though the article is long, and does seem to repeat what it is saying, this is an interesting read.  Why are our teachers not being taught so that they can support the needs of our children in the 21st century.  We need to come up with more engaging ways of exciting our children about learning, and about their futures, so that they see tertiary education as more than just a ticket......
