10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Linguagem Virtual | 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."

“ I’m guilty. And I’m definitely too old to be considered part of the ‘distracted generation’. I didn’t grow up with a device in hand at all times, hopping from shiny thing to shiny thing on the internet. I use tools to help keep me from being distracted online. Distractions are all around with technology, and connecting …”

I think teachers and parents have to work at finding ways to integrate various modes of learning i.e. digital and cursive into children's learning.

Innovative as we want to be, we can't escape this real fact: Our kids tend to be more 'unfocused'. Let's have a look at how we could solve it..  or at least try it!

Motivating Students with Teaching Techniques that Establish Relevance, Promote Autonomy ~ Faculty Focus

Motivating Students with Teaching Techniques that Establish Relevance, Promote Autonomy ~ Faculty Focus | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

by Katherine Robertson, PhD

 

"Underachievement in college students is linked to lack of motivation (Balduf, 2009 and references therein). Two major factors that contribute to poor motivation are inability of students to see the relevance of classroom activities to their chosen careers (Glynn et al., 2009) and lack of a sense of autonomy (Reeve and Jang, 2006; Reeve, 2009).

 

"In this article, I provide examples of how I addressed these two issues with activities that promote experiential learning and encourage students to be more active participants in their learning. These techniques were used mainly in science courses but could be adapted to other disciplines."

Key Takeaways
  • The "Are Machines Making Us Stupid?" course challenged students to explore technology's impact on their learning and their lives — and also taught the instructors a few lessons in the process.
  • Concentration labs were established where students had to limit or forgo technology use for specific assignments.
  • Far from seeing technology as disruptive of their focus, by the course's end, many students were further enamored of it.
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 12, 2013 11:26 AM

Distractions can help to disrupt our 'status quo' and are useful. However, learners need to be mindful and aware of the distractions. This is a great article to help point us to the challenges we face and a need for increased awareness in learning in the digital age.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, January 12, 2013 4:54 PM

At times it is crucial to forego technology use in order to concentrate fully.

4 Ways to Increase Student Attention in the Age of Distraction

4 Ways to Increase Student Attention in the Age of Distraction | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

"MIT professor Sherry Turkle tells a story http://www.wbur.org/npr/163098594/in-constant-digital-contact-we-feel-alone-together of teaching a class on memoir, during which students talked openly about the intimate details of their lives, meanwhile their classmates texted under their desks.

“We were losing the sense of this class as a conversation, and that is the value of what we’re there to do together,” she remembers.

 

Turkle, author of Alone Together http://www.amazon.com/Alone-Together-Expect-Technology-Other/dp/0465031463 , is not alone in her concern about where technology has the potential to take the classroom—and society—should we let it.

 

On this blog, I’ve written about how when left to their own devices (quite literally), some students will check their phones excessively during class (18 times in 50 minutes, for example), but I’ve also written about how and why professors should teach with the very technologies that are distracting their students, like smartphones, Facebook and Twitter.
