An up-to-the-moment synthesis of these two scholars' theorisation of thinking and speaking. Good for people working through sociocultural theory applied to second language learning.

Fiona Harvey's curator insight, August 10, 2013 4:42 PM

I think this is important - looking at the theories of education and found a different paper expounding Vygotskys Social Learning Theory.  There are more correlations here to how effective Group learning is.  Background to the theory. 

'Pedagogy of Collaboration' = cMOOC pedagogy?

The Similarities Between Montessori And Digital Learning

The Similarities Between Montessori And Digital Learning | Mathematics | Scoop.it

"At first glance, the intersections between Montessori education and high-quality digital learning are not immediately apparent. To those of us with some knowledge about Montessori methods—based on formal training, general awareness or, as in my case, the observations of a parent whose children attend a Montessori school—its natural materials and deep traditions seem to stand in opposition to the vision of a futuristic, technology-rich digital or blended learning environment."

Timed Tests and the Development of Math Anxiety | Jo Boaler

Madeline Morgan's curator insight, September 23, 2013 11:26 AM

Knowing that our students suffer from math anxiety is good, but we need to know why they have this anxitey. Timed tests are something that impacts this level of stress in students. In my classroom I want to be able to keep the amount of timed tests to a minimum. I do understand that students need to have practice with timed tests to get ready for standardized testing, but I do believe that students need to have full understanding of the concept before they are tested under a certain amount of time. This article makes it clear that test anxiety makes students not interested about math and makes them scared as well.This is something I plan to keep in mind when I am testing my students in math. When students are confident in the skill and I have taught them to the best of my ability the timed tests will be less stressful and then inturn have less of an impact on the students test anxiety.

Traci Selby's curator insight, February 22, 2013 10:44 AM

I think that Maria Montessori would be proud to know her curriculum still holds strong to this day and is still in use in traditonal Montessori schools. She might say..."As the directress, you should always follow the child".....so, for today's society and technology I feel as the directress we may need to consider utilizing apps, programs and other technology to continue engaging the child and fostering their life long love for learning.
