Is It Ever Too Late to Learn Music? | MindShift

Is It Ever Too Late to Learn Music? | MindShift | reinventing education | Scoop.it

"Marcus studied language acquisition in graduate school. He says that for a long time, there was a generally accepted theory of “critical periods”: the idea that if you don’t learn a language early in life, you’ll never be able to master it.

 

“We used to believe that that was the case — that if you didn’t learn by the time you were 16, you’d never become fluent,” Marcus says. “What we know now is that some adults actually do become fluent. And although it’s definitely easier to learn some things when you’re a kid, it’s not the case that you just absolutely lose the ability later in life. There’s more of a gradual decline, but it is still possible.”"

How to Create Your Own Textbook — With or Without Apple | MindShift | reinventing education | Scoop.it

"Apple’s announcement last week about its new iBooks2 and authoring app created big waves in education circles. But smart educators don’t necessarily need Apple’s slick devices and software to create their own books. How educators think of content curation in the classroom is enough to change their reliance on print textbooks."

Study suggests that surprises drive learning in neural circuits | reinventing education | Scoop.it

"It’s been known for a long time that it’s unexpected events in particular that drive learning,” said Wael Asaad, assistant professor of neurosurgery in the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, and the lead author of the study published Dec. 6, 2011 in the Journal of Neuroscience. “It’s when you encounter something that’s unexpectedly good or bad that you need to change your behavior either to keep doing the thing that’s good or avoid the thing that’s bad."

The Pedagogy of Play and the Role of Technology in Learning

The Pedagogy of Play and the Role of Technology in Learning | reinventing education | Scoop.it

"One doesn't read 'The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire' to develop strategy before playing the game. One starts by playing. This is true for all videogames. You start by exploring the world with curiosity and begin to develop a hypothesis of what you're supposed to do. Through trial, error, pattern recognition, logic and chance you continually reformulate your trajectory. This model of learning is not only effective for videogames but for all digital tools, and I would argue that play -- especially in the digital sense -- is emerging as a pedagogical keystone for education in the 21st century."

Combining Computer Games with Classroom Teaching | MindShift | reinventing education | Scoop.it

“Information that was once presented with a focus on recall and knowledge that can be delegated to technological implements, computer programs or web-based tools,” Jones said. “Instructors have to find what is the perfect balance between occupying their students with something that is fun, and giving them an opportunity to learn something important. That sweet spot is often difficult to hit for a programmer, or a textbook company or an instructor.”
