Research Shows Students Learn Better When They Figure Things Out On Their Own

Research Shows Students Learn Better When They Figure Things Out On Their Own | Educación, tecnología y aprendizaje autónomo de lenguas | Scoop.it

In some instances, research illuminates a topic and changes our existing beliefs. For example, here’s a post that challenges the myth of preferred learning styles. Other times, you might hear about a study and say, “Well, of course that’s true!” This might be one of those moments. 

Last year, Dr. Karlsson Wirebring and fellow researchers published a study that supports what many educators and parents have already suspected: students learn better when they figure things out on their own, as compared to being told what to do.

Lon Woodbury's curator insight, July 13, 5:29 PM

I take away two concepts that this research suggests.  One is support for experiential learning.  The other is that the experience of struggling to find a solution is a key ingredient, which is what other research suggests is important for learning life lessons. -Lon

How To Get Angry In Style - English - learning article | Educación, tecnología y aprendizaje autónomo de lenguas | Scoop.it

Sometimes you just have to blow your top.

However, this can be a bit tricky in a foreign language. If we don’t have the skills to add emphasis to what we’re saying, we may end up getting red in the face, while still not communicating the true scale of our frustrations.

However, there are methods we can learn that make this a lot easier. This article is going to look at various ways of adding emphasis to the English language so you can lose your cool like a native speaker.

Confirming Negatives In English - English - learning article

Confirming Negatives In English - English - learning article | Educación, tecnología y aprendizaje autónomo de lenguas | Scoop.it
One of the things that my students frequently ask me about is how to reply to a negative question or negative statement in English. This type of sentence presents an interesting challenge that bewilders many students over the course of their English studies. Essentially, it first asserts an opinion or evaluation that is negative, and then asks for confirmation of it with a tagline.

Theresa May, la premier británica, ha propuestro restablecer el modelo de las Grammar Schools en el Reino Unido, escuelas que segregan a los niños y niñas a los 11 años de acuedo con sus supuestas competencias y aptitudes. La variante que supuestamente introduce May en este modelo (arcaico) de escuela es el de ser inclusivas o comprehensivas, algo que el diario The Independent ya ha calificado, en un interesante artículo titulado “Dear Theresa May, here’s what grammar schools did to my family“, de oximorón.

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Verbs [Infographic]

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Verbs [Infographic] | Educación, tecnología y aprendizaje autónomo de lenguas | Scoop.it
When using Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy (a revised take on Bloom’s devised by educator Andrew Churches), it helps to have a list of verbs to know what actions define each stage of the taxonomy. This is useful for lesson planning, rubric making, and any other teacher-oriented task requiring planning and assessment strategies.

The Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy verbs in this handy infographic apply specifically to each stage of the taxonomy. They progress from LOTS (lower-order thinking skills) to the HOTS (higher-order thinking skills).

According to Churches on his wiki Edorigami, “Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy describes many traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions, but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with Web 2.0 technologies …” This means the verbs listed below are applicable to facilitating technology use in the modern classrooms.

Money Talks... - English - learning article | Educación, tecnología y aprendizaje autónomo de lenguas | Scoop.it
There’s an old British custom never to talk about money in social situations. According to the rules of social etiquette, discussing how much you earn or how much you paid for something is vulgar and bad manners. Thus, in the workplace, salaries are kept a closely guarded secret from colleagues in order to avoid the supposed upset it would cause if everyone’s remuneration was revealed. He earns how much?!

3 Simple Rules For Pronouncing Past Simple Endings - English - learning article | Educación, tecnología y aprendizaje autónomo de lenguas | Scoop.it
Sometimes English can leave us scratching our heads in confusion. It can be complicated to learn rules and exceptions, irregular spellings and advanced tenses. However, sometimes a very common problem can have very a simple solution. Take for example regular verb endings. One of the most common mistakes by English learners of all levels is mispronouncing the -ed sound on the end of verbs.

How many tenses are there in English? There are about 12 basic tenses (not including the use of the conditional e.g. If I could afford it, I would buy a new car). Some experts will say there are as many as 16 or more. As you will see, you don’t have to worry about all of them most of the time, especially when you’re first learning to hold (have) short conversations. Here they are:

Data and research on education including skills, literacy, research, elementary schools, childhood learning, vocational training and PISA, PIACC and TALIS surveys.,

Education at a Glance is the authoritative source for information on the state of education around the world.

It provides more trend data and analysis on diverse topics, such as: teachers’ salaries; graduation rates; expenditure on education; enrolment rates; young adults who are neither employed nor in education or training; class size; and teaching hours. The publication examines gender imbalance in education and the profile of students who attend, and graduate from, vocational education.

Cómo y por qué crear un grupo en Facebook durante un curso | Educación, tecnología y aprendizaje autónomo de lenguas | Scoop.it

La idea de introducir Facebook dentro de un entorno educativo puede crear diferentes opiniones. Existe la preocupación relacionada con la privacidad y también la distracción potencial al estar conectado a esta red.

Una opción interesante que supera algunos de estos retos es la creación de un grupo cerrado en Facebook. La configuración de un grupo no requiere de la amistad entre sus miembros, las publicaciones puede ser totalmente privadas al público y son siempre exclusivas al grupo.

Extensive reading is a great way to get lots of input in your target language. In light of this, we’ll look at eight tips on how to find interesting reading materials.

 

So, why do you need lots of input in the first place? Well, when it comes to language learning, the more input you have, the easier it will become to produce output. Reading, watching and listening to a lot of material in your target language will give you interesting subjects to talk about with your tutor or language partner, and will help you to consolidate what you’re studying and absorb much more.

Los resultados del aprendizaje son declaraciones de lo que se espera que un estudiante conozca, comprenda y/o sea capaz de hacer al final de su recorrido formativo. Una correcta definición de los mismos permite informar a la sociedad y a los estudiantes sobre cuáles son las exigencias de aprendizaje de cada nivel, además de suministrar información a los empleadores sobre cuáles son las correspondientes competencias de quienes van a ser empleados.

18 Polyglots Reveal Their Language Learning Eureka Moments

18 Polyglots Reveal Their Language Learning Eureka Moments | Educación, tecnología y aprendizaje autónomo de lenguas | Scoop.it
We all have them, those “aha!” moments when the mists of uncertainty part and we finally understand. Archimedes’ moment apparently had him running through the streets of Syracuse naked (he had been enjoying a relaxing bath moments before) shouting “eureka!”. Most of us aren’t trailblazing mathematicians, so perhaps our eureka moments aren’t quite as dramatic, but we have them nonetheless. These moments help us to keep on going with a goal. They renew our motivation and remind of us why we made the goal in the first place.
