I love Flipboard and use it as a supplementary textbook filled with literature notes that I have gleaned off the Internet for my pupils or that I have created myself on Google Drive. I have connected my Twitter account to Flipboard, so I can send tweets of my material, which can then easily be flipped into a magazine of my choice.

With its magazine function Flipboard is an attractive cross platform means of curating and delivering content fro teaching purposes.

Motivating Students with Teaching Techniques that Establish Relevance, Promote Autonomy ~ Faculty Focus

Motivating Students with Teaching Techniques that Establish Relevance, Promote Autonomy ~ Faculty Focus | ART: Learning Activities for Transformed Engagement | Scoop.it

by Katherine Robertson, PhD

 

"Underachievement in college students is linked to lack of motivation (Balduf, 2009 and references therein). Two major factors that contribute to poor motivation are inability of students to see the relevance of classroom activities to their chosen careers (Glynn et al., 2009) and lack of a sense of autonomy (Reeve and Jang, 2006; Reeve, 2009).

 

"In this article, I provide examples of how I addressed these two issues with activities that promote experiential learning and encourage students to be more active participants in their learning. These techniques were used mainly in science courses but could be adapted to other disciplines."

Active Learning and Technology: Designing Change for Faculty, Students, and Institutions (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu

Active Learning and Technology: Designing Change for Faculty, Students, and Institutions (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | ART: Learning Activities for Transformed Engagement | Scoop.it

Daniel Pink argues that knowledge workers in an increasingly global economy will need "a very different kind of mind," one that combines critical analysis with the type of big-picture thinking that was previously associated with "creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers, and meaning makers." Pink maintains that education will need to develop "high concept" and "high touch" skills in addition to the mastery of domain knowledge(s).16 A recent report on the state of graduate education agrees. According to the report, the economic competitiveness of the United States will depend on its ability to educationally foster the development of "knowledge workers who exhibit not just the mastery of a subject area, but the creative ability and drive to reshape the boundaries of knowledge and navigate between geocultural boundaries. As globalization makes geography matter less and technology matter more, those workers with 'high concept' and 'high touch' abilities will become increasingly valuable."17 For faculty to create and use teaching strategies that move in this direction, sustained faculty-development efforts are key. Developing, internalizing, and applying such local knowledge involves hands-on, minds-on creativity that is well worth the effort. Indeed, making the curricular changes required today is more than a reasonable institutional aim; it is a strategic, critical step toward meeting students' present and future needs.

Eric Mazur on new interactive teaching techniques | Harvard Magazine Mar-Apr 2012

Eric Mazur on new interactive teaching techniques | Harvard Magazine Mar-Apr 2012 | ART: Learning Activities for Transformed Engagement | Scoop.it

In 1990, after seven years of teaching at Harvard, Eric Mazur, now Balkanski professor of physics and applied physics, was delivering clear, polished lectures and demonstrations and getting high student evaluations for his introductory Physics 11 course, populated mainly by premed and engineering students who were successfully solving complicated problems. Then he discovered that his success as a teacher “was a complete illusion, a house of cards.”

The epiphany came via an article in the American Journal of Physics by Arizona State professor David Hestenes. He had devised a very simple test, couched in everyday language, to check students’ understanding of one of the most fundamental concepts of physics—force—and had administered it to thousands of undergraduates in the southwestern United States. Astonishingly, the test showed that their introductory courses had taught them “next to nothing,” says Mazur: “After a semester of physics, they still held the same misconceptions as they had at the beginning of the term.”

Active learning increases student performance in science, engineering, and mathematics | Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Active learning increases student performance in science, engineering, and mathematics | Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America | ART: Learning Activities for Transformed Engagement | Scoop.it

Abstract

To test the hypothesis that lecturing maximizes learning and course performance, we metaanalyzed 225 studies that reported data on examination scores or failure rates when comparing student performance in undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses under traditional lecturing versus active learning. The effect sizes indicate that on average, student performance on examinations and concept inventories increased by 0.47 SDs under active learning (n = 158 studies), and that the odds ratio for failing was 1.95 under traditional lecturing (n = 67 studies). These results indicate that average examination scores improved by about 6% in active learning sections, and that students in classes with traditional lecturing were 1.5 times more likely to fail than were students in classes with active learning. Heterogeneity analyses indicated that both results hold across the STEM disciplines, that active learning increases scores on concept inventories more than on course examinations, and that active learning appears effective across all class sizes—although the greatest effects are in small (n ≤ 50) classes. Trim and fill analyses and fail-safe n calculations suggest that the results are not due to publication bias. The results also appear robust to variation in the methodological rigor of the included studies, based on the quality of controls over student quality and instructor identity. This is the largest and most comprehensive metaanalysis of undergraduate STEM education published to date. The results raise questions about the continued use of traditional lecturing as a control in research studies, and support active learning as the preferred, empirically validated teaching practice in regular classrooms
