A Simple Trick for Learning New Information

A Simple Trick for Learning New Information | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Students in an experiment appeared to do a better job learning when they thought they'd have to teach the material in question later on.
Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "Still, the results from the first experiment were pretty solid, and the researchers' explanation for why the learning-to-teach strategy might work is interesting:


"Why does expecting to teach enhance organization of output and encoding of the main points of a passage? The explanation we currently favor is that participants expecting to teach put themselves into the mindset of a teacher, leading them to adopt certain effective strategies used by teachers when preparing to teach—such as organizing and weighing the importance of difference concepts in the to-be-taught material, focusing on main points, and thinking about how information fits together."

The education question we should be asking

The education question we should be asking | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it

One area of education that doesn’t get enough attention in the loud education reform debate is exactly what is worth learning. In the following post Alfie Kohn explores this problem. Kohn (www.alfiekohn.org) is the author of 13 books about education, parenting, and human behavior, including “The Myth of the Spoiled Child: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom about Children and Parenting,” just published this spring. He lectures widely across the United States and abroad.

What is worth learning? This has been a question asked in educational research for some time i.e. John Dewey and is still being asked i.e. Bill Pinar and David Jardine. What is worth whiling over is not a bureaucratic and technocratic question, but one which comes to life in classrooms.

When we show kids our zeal and passion for what we believe in, we welcome them to share their own. Love what you do, and present it with zeal everyday! Even if it is the 100th time you have presented it, remember it is the first for these students!

Hard to believe something like this exists!
Sharrock's insight:

Thinking about the power of scientific demonstrations for classes. Is video as good as analog? Is it good enough? Also, considering the possibility of wasting time with entertainment. What can a teacher do to avoid students simply being amused or entertained, making the demonstration part of an effective learning experience?

Not 'weird' but a serious, well thought out and easy to understand article.  If you are interested in statistics and how the media and others butcher data, read this.

Training Teachers to Teach Critical Thinking

Training Teachers to Teach Critical Thinking | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it

KIPP King Collegiate High School principal Jason Singer trains his teachers to lead Socratic discussions (above); Katie Kirkpatrick (right), dean of instruction, developed a step-by-step framework ...Define what critical thinking in the classroom is. It's an approach to teaching that allows students to make sense of the content. They analyze the content, they evaluate the content, and they're able to apply it to their daily lives. Teachers ask specific questions to get the students to do those things

Site provides a curriculum for the fostering of original and creative thinking. Something to explore. Who has followed/implemented this curriculum? What are your findings? How did you manage it if your school must also honor the common core state standards?
