Embracing Messy Learning

Embracing Messy Learning | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

I am slowly learning to embrace the struggles that students experience as they engage with authentic work. If I don't allow learning to be messy, I eliminate authentic experiences for students as thinkers and creators. I find it important to regularly remind myself that frustration leads to insights and that learning is not necessarily the equivalent of mastery.

Learning is messy. It is a recurring process which is always recommencing itself.

magnus sandberg's curator insight, August 9, 2014 4:24 AM

The article is good, but what I really love is the term "messy learning" itself. So much teaching in school has the ideal of creating clairity and being systematic in every part of the learning process. But that is simply not how learning happens. We need to embrace the messyness!

Josh Round's curator insight, August 10, 2014 12:08 PM

The messy learning described here mirrors the struggles and frustrations our Learners face in communicative classrooms - a inherent part of the process of learning a language.

On the uncritical use of tecnology in teaching

Are teachers and trainers asking themselves often enough when they plan to use technology to do a specific learning activity whether it is for the right reasons, and whether the use of the functionality or tool in question is a sound, sensible or even desirable methodological choice, or whether, irrespective of the many reported benefits of getting learners to use technology in lessons, it is in fact the most efficient and effective use of the learners and the teacher's time (and money)?

10 Brainteasers to Test Your Mental Sharpness - article from Forbes

10 Brainteasers to Test Your Mental Sharpness - article from Forbes | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it
To test your mental acuity, answer the following questions (no peeking at the answers!): 1. Johnny’s mother had three children. The first child was named April. The second child was named May. What was the third child’s name?

 

 

 NP: For more of the same and the answer to this one, follow the link to the article from Forbes. Great material to see if learners can understand the tricks and play on words. Helps develop thinking skills or initiate discussion about how we think and learn.
