The Case for Silence While You Work or Study

The Case for Silence While You Work or Study | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
The Mozart Effect suggests that listening to some types of music can help with certain mental tasks. However, there’s a case to be made for working or studying in silence, too. Some research shows that for certain cognitive tasks, you need quiet more than anything.

3 tips to apply the levels of Processing Theory in eLearning course design

3 tips to apply the levels of Processing Theory in eLearning course design | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
The Levels of Processing theory suggests that memory is simply a side effect of information processing. One of the things that sets the Levels of Processing apart from many other Instructional Design models and theories is that it does not rely on memory structures. In fact, it stipulates that there is no clear difference between long and short-term memory. Instead, the level of processing directly relates to the level of memory. According to Craik, learners remember more if they draw meaning from the information, and it has little to do with how much they analyze the content. Based on the Level of Processing, online learners process information on 3 levels that fall into 2 distinct categories:

Science Shows How Drummers' Brains Are Actually Different From Everybody Elses' | Jordan Sloan | MIC.com

Science Shows How Drummers' Brains Are Actually Different From Everybody Elses' | Jordan Sloan | MIC.com | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

In the music world, drummers always bear the brunt of the joke. Most have the same punchline: Drummers are idiots. Take, for example, the following: "How do you tell if the stage is level? The drummer is drooling from both sides of his mouth."

Whether it's being ruthlessly mocked for their idiocy, repeatedly killed in This Is Spinal Tap or just lusted after less often than the lead guitarist, drummers walk a tough road. But it turns out science shows drummers have an advantage over everyone else. According to research, drummers have a rare, innate ability to problem-solve and change those around them.

For starters, rock steady drummers can actually be smarter than their less rhythmically-focused bandmates. A study from the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm found a link between intelligence, good timing and the part of the brain used for problem-solving. Researchers had drummers play a variety of different beats and then tasked them with a simple 60-problem intelligence test. The drummers who scored the highest were also better able to keep a steady beat. At last, hard proof that John Bonham really was a genius.

What myths do you know that undermine educational effectiveness? This post provides 21, and each is explained in the post. Fourteen of the myths provide links to additional information. Five of them are listed below. Click through to the post to find additional information on these five and the additional sixteen.

* Facts prevent understanding.

* You can always just look it up.

* Homework boosts achievement.

* Subject matter knowledge is a teacher's most powerful asset.

* The brain is static, unchanging and set before you start school.

You may not agree with all of these myths. Many could be used as a starter for discussions in a faculty meeting or with parents.

Cognitive Load Theory: Making learning more effective

Cognitive Load Theory: Making learning more effective | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
Cognitive Load Theory builds upon the widely accepted model of human information processing shown in Figure 1 (this was published by Richard Atkinson and Richard Shiffrin in 1968.)

It describes the process as having three main parts: sensory memory, working memory and long-term memory. Since then, many researchers have added to our understanding of this concept, but the basic model remains the same.

Educating Minds Online | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

Online courses—or an online component of a traditional class—offer a way to "give students repeated, challenging practice with the concepts we want them to know and the skills we want them to master," Miller said. "When I started out as a teacher, we cognitive psychologists already knew that things like frequent quizzing were incredibly beneficial to learning. I was excited to apply these findings, but when I got into a real classroom environment I found that it was overwhelmingly difficult and time consuming to actually do so. In many traditional courses you also can’t do things like offer repeated quiz attempts with different questions, or adapt the quiz to the topics that individual students are having the most trouble with."
