Rote learning vs. Reflective learning...I was talking to a middle school history teacher the other day that shared how she has her students take notes in their spiral notebooks. On the left side of the notebook students write class notes, then on the right side they write their "reflections", what did the teacher say that was meaningful to them, how did the class topic relate to something they have experienced, etc. This is a great teaching strategy.

DSM-V: Online Assessment Measures

Learn more about Online Assessment Measures at psychiatry.org
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

The APA is offering a number of “emerging measures” for further research and clinical evaluation. These patient assessment measures were developed to be administered at the initial patient interview and to monitor treatment progress. They should be used in research and evaluation as potentially useful tools to enhance clinical decision-making and not as the sole basis for making a clinical diagnosis. Instructions, scoring information, and interpretation guidelines are provided; further background information can be found in DSM-5. The APA requests that clinicians and researchers provide further data on the instruments’ usefulness in characterizing patient status and improving patient care at http://www.dsm5.org/Pages/Feedback-Form.aspx.

Improving the Response Rate.....

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

"

The "but you are free to accept or to refuse" technique is a
compliance procedure in which someone is approached with a
request by simply telling him/her that he/she is free to accept or to
refuse the request. This semantic evocation leads to increase
compliance with the request. Furthermore, in most of the studies
in which this technique was tested, subjects have been asked to
give money to a confederate. A new evaluation of the effect of this
technique was tested in an experiment in which subjects in the
street have been approached to respond to a survey. The results
show that, when the semantic evocation of freedom is included in
the request, a higher compliance rate occurred. The commitment
theory was used to explain such results"

 

Translation?  If we give students choices; if we let them know particiaption is voluntary - participation/motivation/engagement is likely to increase.

I am a fan of Gardner and his Five MInds for the Future. This new work is needed and I like the emphasis on designing learning to work with these multiple intelligences. In this world of rapid change and increasing complexity, learning is THE competitive advantage we can control.

For me the most important is moral and emotional intelligence, than cognitive and other that HG did discover.

Rhiannon Boyd's curator insight, November 18, 2013 5:33 PM

From the article: 

 "On the basis of research in several disciplines, including the study of how human capacities are represented in the brain, I developed the idea that each of us has a number of relatively independent mental faculties, which can be termed our “multiple intelligences.” The basic idea is simplicity itself. A belief in a single intelligence assumes that we have one central, all-purpose computer—and it determines how well we perform in every sector of life. In contrast, a belief in multiple intelligences assumes that we have a number of relatively autonomous computers—one that computes linguistic information, another spatial information, another musical information, another information about other people, and so on." - HG

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 13, 5:23 PM

Most quantitative research boils things down to statistics and an average measure of something. That might be helpful the further away from the classroom a person is, but the mix of quantitative and qualitative is important in the classroom. The late Ted Aoki used the phrase that students become faceless in the face of statistics.

 

Whatever research we turn to has to answer some important questions. Does the research measure and report what it says it does? Is the research helpful in the teaching and learning that happens in the classroom?

“Maybe the most surprising aspect of the research so far is how clear a signal we see in the brains of children who are likely to go on to be poor readers.”
