@anniemurphypaul Do you know these smart learning strategies? | Learning Disabilities | Scoop.it

".....anytime a student learns, he or she has to bring in two kinds of prior knowledge: knowledge about the subject at hand (say, mathematics or history) and knowledge about how learning works. Parents and educators are pretty good at imparting the first kind of knowledge. We’re comfortable talking about concrete information: names, dates, numbers, facts. But the guidance we offer on the act of learning itself—the “metacognitive” aspects of learning—is more hit-or-miss, and it shows....."

Lou Salza's curator insight, October 7, 2013 9:05 AM

This is so important especially for students who struggle with dyslexia or ADHD.  ----Lou

Excerpt:

"...In our schools, "the emphasis is on what students need to learn, whereas little emphasis—if any—is placed on training students how they should go about learning the content and what skills will promote efficient studying to support robust learning," writes John Dunlosky, professor of psychology at Kent State University in Ohio, in an article just published in American Educator. However, he continues, "teaching students how to learn is as important as teaching them content, because acquiring both the right learning strategies and background knowledge is important—if not essential—for promoting lifelong learning..."

n their own study, Askell-Williams and her coauthors took as their subjects 1,388 Australian high school students. They first administered an assessment to find out how much the students knew about cognitive and metacognitive learning strategies—and found that their familiarity with these tactics was “less than optimal....”

"...Students can assess their own awareness by asking themselves which of the following learning strategies they regularly use (the response to each item is ideally “yes”):
• I draw pictures or diagrams to help me understand this subject.
• I make up questions that I try to answer about this subject.
• When I am learning something new in this subject, I think back to what I already know about it.
• I discuss what I am doing in this subject with others.
• I practice things over and over until I know them well in this subject.
• I think about my thinking, to check if I understand the ideas in this subject.
• When I don’t understand something in this subject I go back over it again.
• I make a note of things that I don’t understand very well in this subject, so that I can follow them up.
• When I have finished an activity in this subject I look back to see how well I did.
• I organize my time to manage my learning in this subject.
• I make plans for how to do the activities in this subject.

Askell-Williams and her colleagues found that those students who used fewer of these strategies reported more difficulty coping with their schoolwork...."

According to the research, ''It’s not just what you know. It’s what you know about what you know.''

 

The latter is known as ''metacognition'', which is illustrated in the article.

Reading Comprehension Instruction for Students With Disabilities

Reading Comprehension Instruction for Students With Disabilities | Learning Disabilities | Scoop.it
Improve reading comprehension skills problems - Research conducted suggests that children with reading difficulties are the result of broadly based language problems and not limited to simple difficulties with word recognition.
Laura Perez's insight:

Los niños con dificultades lectoras tienen problemas añadidos para llegar a la comprensión de los textos. Así se hace necesaria una intervención dirigida a dotarlos de estrategias de comprensión. Aunque estos programas son eficaces no son facilmente generalizables, por eso las investigaciones se interesan en la manera más efectiva de consegir esta generalización.
