The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning | Faculty Focus

The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning | Faculty Focus | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
Self-regulated learning is like your own little secret. It stirs from within you, and is the voice in your head that asks you questions about your learning.

More formally, self-regulated learning is the conscious planning, monitoring, evaluation, and ultimately control of one’s learning in order to maximize it. It’s an ordered process that experts and seasoned learners like us practice automatically. It means being mindful, intentional, reflective, introspective, self-aware, self-controlled, and self-disciplined about learning, and it leads to becoming self-directed.

The Modern Educator – part one | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
As noted in some of my tweets recently I am undertaking some work with Independent Thinking on the Isle of Man this week. It’s a really exciting project.

My part of it is looking at what it takes to be a modern educator. I obviously have my points of view on this but to start off with I thought (in true ‘modern educator’ style) to my PLN and ask them…

Higher-order thinking takes thinking to a whole new level. Students using it are understanding higher levels rather than just memorizing math facts. They would have to understand the facts, infer them, and connect them to other concepts.

Need to remember something? Exercise 4 hours later!

A new study suggests an intriguing strategy to boost memory for what you've just learned: hit the gym four hours later. The findings reported in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on June 16 show that physical exercise after learning improves memory and memory traces, but only if the exercise is done in a specific time window and not immediately after learning.

Psychologists recommend children be bored in the summer

Psychologists recommend children be bored in the summer | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
Do you entertain your kids with chess camp, art school, cooking classes, or tennis lessons during the unstructured summer months? Or perhaps all of them?

There are activities and summer camps galore to fill children’s time and supply much needed childcare when kids are out of school. But psychologists and child development experts suggest that over-scheduling children during the summer is unnecessary and could ultimately keep kids from from discovering what truly interests them.

“Your role as a parent is to prepare children to take their place in society. Being an adult means occupying yourself and filling up your leisure time in a way that will make you happy,” says Lyn Fry, a child psychologist in London with a focus on education. “If parents spend all their time filling up their child’s spare time, then the child’s never going to learn to do this for themselves.”

Fry is not the only one to point out the benefits of boredom. Dr. Teresa Belton, visiting fellow at the University of East Anglia with a focus on the connection between boredom and imagination, told the BBC that boredom is crucial for developing “internal stimulus,” which then allows true creativity.

And though our capacity for boredom may well have diminished with all the attractions of the internet, experts have been discussing the importance of doing nothing for decades.

Brain markers of numeric, verbal, and spatial reasoning abilities found

Brain markers of numeric, verbal, and spatial reasoning abilities found | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it

A new study helps explain how brain structure and chemistry relate to “fluid intelligence” — the ability to adapt to new situations and solve problems one has never encountered before.

The study, reported in an open-access paper in the journal NeuroImage, observed two facets of fluid intelligence*:

Verbal or spatial reasoning was linked to higher concentrations of a compound called NAA (N-acetyl aspartate) in the medial parietal and posterior cingulate cortices of the brain. NAA is a byproduct of glucose metabolism and a marker of energy production in the brain. It was measured with magnetic resonance spectroscopy.  Number-related problem-solving was linked to brain volume in all subjects, measured using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The analysis involved 211 research subjects, making it the largest study to date linking brain chemistry and intelligence in living humans. A follow-up analysis revealed that this pattern of findings was observed for males and females when analyzed separately.

A similar separation of reasoning abilities has been demonstrated in previous studies, but more studies will be needed to confirm and extend the findings, the researchers said.

ASCD Express 11.20 - A Road Map for Creative Instruction

ASCD Express 11.20 - A Road Map for Creative Instruction | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
Students who learn in a creative environment, are exposed to creative activities and assignments, and observe their teacher modeling creative thinking will become more creative thinkers (Sternberg & Williams, 1996). A creative learning environment that embraces students and engagement along with critical thinking and creative thinking skills is essential to student achievement (Boykin & Noguera, 2011, 2012; Marks, 2000, as cited in Jensen, 2013). To plan the instruction that matches your creativity nurturing classroom enviornment, first identify the nonnegotiables. The nonnegotiables consist of the curricular standards, the required content, and the skills that are the target of a lesson (Drapeau, 2004). Then, choose one of four roads on the Creativity Road Map or combine roads to intentionally integrate creative instruction with content.
