Study: Text-messaging increases course-related interactions

Study: Text-messaging increases course-related interactions | Pedagogical Ponderings | Scoop.it

"The importance and prevalence of text messaging is certainly undeniable. This 2008 study placed the monthly volume at over 75 billion. But where does it fit into academia? This Spring 2011 study, 'Using Text-Messaging in the Secondary Classroom', conducted by two professors at Bellarmine University, found text-messaging to be beneficial for increasing course-related interaction. Students liked the versatility that mobile phones and text-messaging provide, enabling them to access course materials and communicate with peers and teachers while riding on the bus, waiting to be picked up, or during other ‘down’ time."

Videos turn homework on its head

Videos turn homework on its head | Pedagogical Ponderings | Scoop.it

"PETER Smythe has often been accused of being a little back to front. The year 11 mathematics teacher at Canberra's Gungahlin College has reversed the concept of 'class work'' and 'homework'. Every day he sends his students a series of YouTube links to self-recorded videos of himself lecturing and asks them to study the clips at home. Then in class, he asks them to pull out their homework and work through all the exercises associated with last night's 'lesson'. It may sound a little strange, but the concept of the 'flipped classroom' is being celebrated as a eureka moment by educators."

Call it the "learning paradox": the more you struggle and even fail while you're trying to master new information, the better you're likely to recall and apply that information later.
