[The “testing effect” or “retrieval practice”] Studying With Quizzes HELPS Make Sure the Material Sticks

[The “testing effect” or “retrieval practice”] Studying With Quizzes HELPS Make Sure the Material Sticks | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it
This phenomenon — testing yourself on an idea or concept to help you remember it — is called the “testing effect” or “retrieval practice.” People have known about the idea for centuries. Sir Francis Bacon mentioned it, as did the psychologist William James. In 350 BCE, Aristotle wrote that “exercise in repeatedly recalling a thing strengthens the memory.”

But the testing effect had been mostly overlooked in recent years. “What psychologists interested in learning and memory have always emphasized is the acquisition part. The taking [information] in and getting it into memory,” Roediger said.

Laypeople — and even experts — tend to think of human memory as a box to be packed with information.

 

“Memory is dynamic, and it keeps changing,” McDaniel said. “And retrieval helps it change.”

Dit artikel daagt ons uit om de 'varken metafoor /evaluatie stelling' in vraag te stellen. (een varken verdikt niet door het vaker te wegen). Het antwoord zit volgens dit artikel in de wijze waarop we wegen. 
Chris Carter's curator insight, November 23, 2016 9:53 PM
I recently presented at EduTECH Asia, Singapore, concerning the power of recall-based learning. Essentially, get the information once (encode-learning), then test yourself repeatedly. The 60+ studies and meta-studies that I examined in preparation for my presentation all tell the same story. Recall-based learning (quizzing) is at least 400% more effective than re-studying in the traditional way. the keys are:
1. frequent quizzes
2. low-stakes quizzes
3. Immediate feedback
4. Interleaved quizzing (quizzing over time, and across units)
5. Pre- and Post-summative assessment reflection

The best augmented reality apps THAT AREN'T Pokemon GO | #AR #RA  | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Pokemon GO isn't the only app that seamlessly blends virtual objects into the real world.

 

In a very short time, Pokemon GO has pushed augmented reality (AR) into the mainstream. Its ability to overlay digital animations onto the real world using your phone's camera and screen is unlike any other popular game before it. But Pokemon GO isn't the only app that seamlessly blends virtual objects into the real world. Here are the best AR apps not linked with Nintendo.

The MAKER Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The MAKER Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.

Contextual Intelligence: Smart Phones To Become BIG BROTHER?

Contextual Intelligence: Smart Phones To Become BIG BROTHER? | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Say goodbye to privacy: In the future, advertisers, app makers, the government, and even our employers might be able to assess our personalities and react based on what we do with our phones.

 

Oliver Brdiczka, a manager at PARC, is working on contextual intelligence. The research, he hopes, will allow enterprises and the government to use data that is accumulated as we use our mobile phones. The data mined from our email messages, Facebook conversations, and sensors in the phone can be used for a variety of purposes, including intelligence, marketing and app design, even employee relations. In other words, owning a smart phone with this capability will be like having a spy ratting out your thoughts to the government.

 

For instance, PARC is working on a project that predicts a person's personality through their online behavior. The idea, Brdiczka said, is to market this data to enterprises, who want to know people's intent for targeted advertising or developing content customization. (...)

 

"Imagine a device that immediately lights up when you hold it in your hand and offers you the five most likely things you were going to do next: call your co-worker, drive to the meeting you're about to have, book a dinner or catch up on that article that you wanted to read," said Cue CEO Daniel Gross. "We'll be able to breathe life into our current phones, which currently only do things when we explicitly tell them every detail of what we want to do."
