6 Quick Brain-Based Teaching Strategies

6 Quick Brain-Based Teaching Strategies | Project Based Learning Approach | Scoop.it
So many teachers want the quick strategies they can use the very next day. Unfortunately, many of those are just more of the same. Sometimes what makes a strategy work (or not work) is HOW the teacher “sets up” the activity. Other times it works because of the timing or the environmental factors.

In short, it not about just the strategy. But for a moment, let’s say, you’ve already taken one of my amazing multi-day brain-based courses. The following might be good for a quick reminder:

1. The saying “too much, too fast,” means we won’t integrate and recall the information if you teach is quickly. Instead, chunk down the learning into small chunks; allow processing and settling time with partners or as reflective journal time.

2. Because every brain is different—genes + experience, plus the interplay between the two, recall the importance of honoring uniqueness, respecting differences. That means use huge variety to maximize learning. Use visual, with illustrations, and podcasts and DVDs. Then use movement with drama, hands on and energizers. Also use plenty of call-response with partner dialogs.

3. Most subjects can be learned under moderate stress; think of it as “healthy concern.” To ramp that up, use constant accountability. After every learning chunk, have kids create a quiz question, stand up, quiz their neighbor or create a short quiz of 10 questions. Use teams, peer pressure and deadlines to add concern. Remember the material better with an emotion embedded with it. After the quiz, celebrate the progress.

4. Thinking about thinking builds learning skills as active processing time. Add the process of journaling, discussion and learning logs valuable for better learning. Give students starter sentences such as “What I was curious (or stressed over) about today was”… Or, “What I learned today was… and, the way I learned it best was when I.” Until patterns emerge, learning is often random and messy, following no clear path over time, the patterns become more obvious. Pattern making is more complex in second languages like math and music.

5. Remember the value in non-learning or “settling” time, to consolidate the content. Take breaks, recess, lunch, relax time, walks, for passive processing. Even a quick energizer that’s fun and playful can be a good break.

6. Our brain can memorize, but our best learning is the trial & error learning; it’s a key to complex learning–there’s value in games done well, so use games, computers, competition, building, initiatives, etc. Games like hopscotch, relays, or just let kids quiz each other. Brains rarely get it right the first time—learning complexity is built over time Using checklists, peer teaching, computers, asking Qs, are all examples of using trial and error.

TBL and PBL: Two learner-centred approaches with English language learning

TBL and PBL: Two learner-centred approaches with English language learning | Project Based Learning Approach | Scoop.it

The language presented and practiced does not take into account the particular needs of each learner; the language content is almost always dictated by the coursebook and/or syllabus. For this reason, many teachers, having experimented with the PPP approach turn to more learner-centred approaches where the needs of the learner are central to the lesson content. Two such approaches are TBL (Task-Based Learning) and PBL (Project-Based Learning).

Neuroscience of Learning

Neuroscience of Learning | Project Based Learning Approach | Scoop.it

Don't you agree that these folks should be connected up with those of us exploring the relationship of space to learning?

 

"Overview

 

For many years now, neuroscience has had a distant relationship to education. Many have discussed with excitement but no substance the promise of direct neuroscience-education links. However, perhaps cognitive neuroscience and cognitive science of education have progressed far enough that meaningful links are now possible. We explore new methods of conducting training interventions that are directly informed by the cognitive neuroscience of learning as well as training methods that use realtime neuroscience data to guide instruction.

 

Recent Results

 

There are huge individual differences in the extent to which people engage in self-explanation during learning despite being given explicit instructions and detailed training on how to do so. Failing to self-explain at a given moment appears to be strongly associated with zoning out.Pupil size appears to be clearly associated with using better learning strategies and amount of learning.From fMRI studies, level of effort appears to be well tracked by executive control areas of the brain, whereas more meaning based strategies separte from less meaning-based but also effortful strategy through levels of activation in semantic areas."

Efectivamente, hoy, el aprendizaje es ubicuo, el alumno puede aprender en diferentes ambientes, quizás en los que mas les "llame la atención" no necesariamente en una clase. Por ello los profesores debemos buscar los contenidos que son de su vida diaria, utilizar recursos tecnológicos que les agrada, para que el aprendizaje tenga éxito.

Saberes Sin Fronteras OVS's curator insight, August 28, 2015 5:41 PM

Es importante la diferencia entre los modos de observar la realidad educacional (u otras actividades en que el elemento esencial es la comunicación): es decir, una amplia gama que va desde la reducción máxima de complejidad en el modelo de jerarquía (donde la obediencia castra toda capacidad creativa) hasta los modelos abiertos en redes flexibles - y entre ambos polos situaríamos los modelos Sistémicos que se caracterizan por su auto-referenciabilidad, mientras que el modelo en red se alimenta precisamente de referencias externas.
