10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in #eLearning) | Loving Learning | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

There has to be a better way of marking. English teachers in particular, seem to have to spend an inordinate amount of time marking student work. This post has some suggestions for making it not only easier, but more effective. We all know students need feedback but how often do you sit for hours for them only to look at a a mark and then put it down? Good feedback can avoid this and force students to take responsibility for their own progress.

This approach is similar to Socratic Circles that I am doing with my year 7 students. It is a great way to put focus on interpretive skills, active listening and discussion skills and on constructing knowledge. The focus is on questioning the text and then listening for different interpretations in order to broaden understanding.
