Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 10, 11:13 AM

We treat social constructivism as if it is new. Dewey and Montessori wrote about it over a century ago although they did not call it constructivism. The idea of using digital technologies and social media add a new twist to old ideas and it is important to inquire into what that means.

Helen Teague's curator insight, February 11, 10:03 AM

nicely succinct infographic on learning theories

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Nonprofit Capacity Building and Training | 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 professionalsso here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

Lecturing Isn't An Effective Instructional Delivery Method: Make It Active

Lecturing Isn't An Effective Instructional Delivery Method: Make It Active | Nonprofit Capacity Building and Training | Scoop.it

Photo in Flickr:

Beth Kanter's insight:

The study was a meta analysis of research that looked at instructional delivery and student grades in sciences.   The results raise questions about the continued use of traditional lecturing and support active learning as the preferred, empirically validated teaching practice in regular classrooms.


The study's authors are interviewed int his article: 

http://news.sciencemag.org/education/2014/05/lectures-arent-just-boring-theyre-ineffective-too-study-finds


  • Change lecture  every 10 minutes with more active teaching techniques and more students will succeed.  Traditional stand-and-deliver lectures are 1.5 times more likely to fail than students in classes that use more stimulating, so-called active learning methods.
“This is a really important article—the impression I get is that it’s almost unethical to be lecturing if you have this data,” says Eric Mazur, a physicist at Harvard University who has campaigned against stale lecturing techniques for 27 years and was not involved in the work. “It’s good to see such a cohesive picture emerge from their meta-analysis—an abundance of proof that lecturing is outmoded, outdated, and inefficient.” 
Peer Instruction is a research-based, interactive teaching method developed by Eric Mazur at Harvard University in the 1990s. It has been adopted across the disciplines, institutional types, and throughout the world. It incorporates many different ideas aligned with how people learn and how they learn best by moving away from the lecture and lecture notes and encouraging students to engage with their peers as they learn. The Peer Instruction Blog: Turn to Your Neighbor is written by Julie Schell , a researcher for Eric Mazur.




"Only an idiot would rely entirely on lectures -- that hasn’t happened for 200 years," he said. "The art of teaching is getting that balance between giving the lectures creatively to impart information and organizing more intensive interactive discussions with students, in different formats."

The Science of Attention- How To Capture & Hold Attention of Distracted Students

The Science of Attention- How To Capture & Hold Attention of Distracted Students | Nonprofit Capacity Building and Training | Scoop.it

"How long can you reasonably expect your students to pay attention during your lessons? Some psychologists claim the typical student’s attention span is about 10 to 15 minutes long, yet most university classes last 50 to 90 minutes. Students’ attention levels vary widely based on factors like motivation, emotion, enjoyment, and time of day."

Learning By Thinking: How Reflection Improves Performance

Learning By Thinking: How Reflection Improves Performance | Nonprofit Capacity Building and Training | Scoop.it

Harvard Business School Working Paper
Giada Di Stefano, Francesca Gino, Gary Pisano and Bradley Staats 

Beth Kanter's insight:

John Dewey: "We do not learn from experience ... we learn from reflecting on experience."


  • Learning from direct experience can be more effective if coupled with reflection—that is, the intentional attempt to synthesize, abstract, and articulate the key lessons taught by experience.
  • Reflecting on what had been learned makes the experience more productive.
  • Reflection builds confidence to achieve a goal


Full paper: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2414478



"Though some organizations are increasingly relying on some group reflection (e.g., “after-action reports”), there has been almost no effort to encourage individuals to reflect, and people often fail to engage in self-reflection themselves. Though reflection entails the high  opportunity cost of one’s time, we argue and show that reflecting after completing tasks is no
idle pursuit: it can powerfully enhance the learning process. Learning, we find, can be augmented if one deliberately focuses on thinking about what one has been doing."
