Pienso que el problema es que nuestros padres no tienen conocimiento de el uso del Internet, y se basan sólo en lo que han escuchado de otras personas que de igual manera no tienen conocimiento, y se fundan la idea que sólo es una pérdida de tiempo.

How technology rewrites literature

How technology rewrites literature | E-learning | Scoop.it

Fom typing on a rolling stream of white space to editing in a cloud, shifts in hardware have altered the way writers research, draft, refine and, ultimately, conceive of their work. The basic mechanism may stay the same, but new tools have led to new relations between authors and the words they use. With the internet, the barrier between the writer and the world has become as thin as skin.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 22, 7:01 PM

After describing the three phases of the learning process based on cognitive science. The first two phases:

* Students decide what to attend to.

* Students organize the information

These work with short term memory but to know the information students must also activate long term memory which may begin in class with a review but should also includes well crafted assignments.

What can you do?The post continues by exploring ways to capture a students attention and ways to help them create a framework. The final section explores how to make the lesson stick. Three examples are below (quoted from the post).

* Begin lectures with a high level question that the upcoming information can answer.

* Highlight the "unfinished" nature of each subject.

* Don't use too many types of different presentation materials at once.

Throughout the post there are links to additional resources.

I like the analogy of a 'sticky lesson'... something that sticks in your head. That's the aim of every lesson... get what you are teaching to stick in the learners head!
