The Myth Of Learning Styles - Edudemic

The Myth Of Learning Styles - Edudemic | Learning from nature | Scoop.it
After several years of writing for Edudemic, I'd have to say that one of the most controversial topics we've ever written about is the concept of different learning styles.

Some interesting information for the fourth of July wekend. These infographics incorporate elements of history and geography, taking a look at people and places of the past and present. From the original thirteen colonies to all fifty states and the habits and traditions of different regions of the U.S.

Super simple.   Easy to understand.  This may be one of the best articles I've read on this concept.....there's been so much fuss and it's really only 3 simple steps.

How to Make Your Classroom a Thinking Space - Suzie Boss

How to Make Your Classroom a Thinking Space - Suzie Boss | Learning from nature | Scoop.it

Take a moment and imagine a creative work environment. Don't worry about the kind of work going on. Just focus on the space. Close your eyes and picture it. What is that space like? What does it sound like? How are people interacting? Is there movement? Is there evidence of work in progress? Is it tidy, or busy-messy? Can you imagine working there?

This article gives teachers ideas on how to create a thinking space for students. In any KLA the importance of helping the students to be able to concentrate is extremely importand. One of the aims in the Australian Curriculum is to allow students to become "creative, innovative and enterprising when using traditional, contemporary and emerging technologies, and understand how technologies have developed over time."

By creating a thinking space this allows students the freedom to learn and implement the above areas.

Melita Ryland's curator insight, May 20, 2013 12:19 AM

This article asks us to rethink what we think to be a work space. They outline that a workspace can come in many different forms and still be productive. By simply moving around an changing the workspace can drastically change the outcomes of student leanring and engagement in more ways than 1.

Khushboo Singh's comment, July 8, 2013 8:30 AM
As I read through this article, I am also painting an image of workspace in my mind that can potentially foster creativity. A creative workspace should be such that it enables generation of free ideas and provide opportunities for constructive engagement. The thought of garage or workshop setting or think labs come to my mind. As mentioned in the article, classroom space is very much like a workspace with the only difference that here children are learning to develop things as well as understand how things work. One of the key areas that contributes to learning is the physical space itself. There are enough evidences as also pointed out in the article, that small adjustments to the classroom space can create better engagement and connect to the topic. Depending upon the school investment/pocket size, efforts can be made from improving the physical layout, wiring, designing flexible furnitures, lighting to simple improvements like changing wall colour, movable board, displays etc. These changes will not only lead to enriched work environment but also energise children to think through situations and work in collaboration.

Math class needs a makeover | Dan Meyer

Today's math curriculum is teaching students to expect -- and excel at -- paint-by-numbers classwork, robbing kids of a skill more important than solving problems: formulating them.

 

"He addressed students who don’t and won’t engage, and how to change the way we present problems to change the paradigm for their learning. In the video, Meyer states, “Students need to decide, ‘All right, well, does the height matter? Does the side of it matter? Does the color of the valve matter? What matters here?’ — such an underrepresented question in math curricula.”


Teaching students to think about problems, rather than spoon feeding them the answers, will also teach them to stick with it. This is critical in addressing this part the CCSS.
