The right visual aids can make all the difference between students understanding a term or walking away shaking their heads. This pattern is true when students are learning new vocabulary words and or seeing the connections between similar words.
We are excited to kick off the first ever Wonder League Robotics Competition! Up to 6 kids will band together to form teams that overcome obstacles, solve challenges, and have a blast while they're at it. This year's mission is...
Sometimes it's the last minute ideas that work the best! I had a teacher ask me to present something about creating book trailers to his students. I threw this Slides presentation together, added some sample Powtoons I'd made last week, and they loved it.
Rachel Kramer Bussel writes: "Colleen Graves, a teacher-librarian at Lamar Middle School in Flower Mound, Tex., made a bookface display using photos from other libraries along with her own students’ images to encourage participation (with the lure of free books for the most Instagram likes). She also posts Vine videos of new books, prompting some students to ask for those titles."
John Spencer writes: "My fear is that when we turn libraries into maker spaces we send the message that reading isn't relevant; that it's boring, that it's a chore. We quit treating it like a candy store and start acting like it's the salad line when soft serve ice cream is just around the corner.
Motivating and engaging students is the goal of most teachers–priming them to receive instruction, or otherwise align themselves to a pre-set process you’ve sketched out that you hope will yield a learning goal you selected beforehand. But I’ve also been thinking recently of how learning actually happens–the causes of learning. Learning events, maybe.
So I came up with 60 (of millions) of these “learning events” (for lack of a better term)–circumstances in which students seem to learn effortlessly. They can learn when they are coerced–to start, to increase the pace, to finish, to revisit. But what kind of conditions or contexts promote effortless learning? Learning when they don’t even know it’s happening? When they’re (essentially) tricked into deep understanding.
