Use the Pomodoro Method to Engage Your Students | Edudemic

Use the Pomodoro Method to Engage Your Students | Edudemic | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
According to a study conducted in the chemistry department of the Catholic University done by Diane M. Bunce, Elizabeth A. Flens, and Kelly Y. Neiles in Washington D.C., it was found that while the original belief of the 10-15 minute attention span may be true, it was not the whole truth. Here is the rest of the story.

It is true that the first lapse of attention (or first break in attention) occurred at approximately the 10-18 minute mark, but after this initial break, the later attention lapses occurred more and more frequently. By the end of class, attention breaks were cycling every 3-4 minutes. In other words, in the last parts of class, students are only paying attention for 3-4 minutes at a time!

So what does this mean for you?

This means that introducing different elements into the routine may benefit both you and your students by helping them pay more attention so that you can be a more effective teacher. This is where the pomodoro method comes in.

Genius app instantly solves math problems by using a phone's camera | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
I've seen the future and it is math less and it is awesome and it is this PhotoMath app that solves math problems just by pointing your phone's camera at them. It's like a cross between a text reading camera, a supremely sophisticated calculator and well, the future. Point and solve and never do math again.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 22, 8:00 AM

Check out this great visual on Project Based Learning (PBL)from Mia MacMeekin. It provides a look at the seven steps found in PBL. For each step she provides a number of ways for students to think about the specific process. What are the seven areas?

1. Start with a real life problem

2. Map it out

3. Prototype, prototype, prototype

4. Be creative

5. Think global

6. Join a challenge

7. Set goals

8. Create learning moments

Along the way she also makes some suggestions on what you should be doing as a teacher. If PBL is new to you (or your students) this would be a great visual to have your students recreate, where they may change words and add images to make it their own. Then hang it in your classroom and support them as they become experienced at project based learning.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, October 22, 9:47 AM

This is an interesting article that I think would especially apply to the technical communications community. I can tell you that my entire career has been nothing but unstable. Gone are the days where you spend so many years someplace and have the devout company loyalty and the mentorship to help you get ahead in that company. I've gotten to the point that while I still crave having a "secure" job (which for me means that I can stay there indefinitely, not be laid off, and am a full-time employee with all the benefits), I've accepted that is highly unlikely to happen anytime in the near future, if ever. I think I'm stuck in consultancy limbo forever. I've learned to make the most of it as best as I can. I am grateful that the current assignment I'm on is an indefinite assignment for the moment--it will be going into my third year in January 2015, and if I complete that year it will be tied with the longest period I've ever spent at any other job. I'm also grateful that I like where I am too. Three years at any one place isn't much. With the economic turmoil of the past few years, I don't see this trend going away. As the author of this article says, job stability is a roller coaster, and you have to be prepared for the ride. I recommend reading this article.

MathChat App Allows Students to Collaborate on Math Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

MathChat App Allows Students to Collaborate on Math Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
MathChat is an interesting new iPad  app that I discovered recently. As its name indicate, MathChat is an app that allows students to collaborate and work together on math problems.  This collaboration takes place in group chats where members get to exchange messages, use pointers to show how to solve a problem, or draw and add arrows to provide illustration and guidance on Math concepts. This collaborative feature of MathChat resembles to a great extent the work Whiteboard apps do.
