Do Students Really Have Different Learning Styles?

Do Students Really Have Different Learning Styles? | School Psychology in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

By Annie Murphy Paul

 

Learning styles—the notion that each student has a particular mode by which he or she learns best, whether it’s visual, auditory or some other sense—is enormously popular. It’s also been thoroughly debunked.

NUMBER one reason behavior plans FAIL??

NUMBER one reason behavior plans FAIL?? | School Psychology in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Was the Plan Implemented as Written?

We recommend that all behavior intervention plans include a simple checklist of essential components to determine at approximately what level of fidelity it is being implemented. Many times such plans are well designed but fail to improve behavior because they are not adequately implemented. Potentially effective plans can be prematurely abandoned when this happens, resulting in the loss of a great deal of valuable time spent creating multiple plans when the true issue is lack of fidelity during implementation.

MUST read for anyone interested in Self-Regulated Learning

This book is written from a European perspective and is well done and is "of interest to researchers and students in education and computing, to educational policy makers, and to the general public with an interest in the future of learning with technology.  

"Self-regulated learning (SRL) subsumes key aspects of the learning process, such as cognitive strategies, metacognition and motivation, in one coherent construct. Central to this construct are the autonomy and responsibility of students to take charge of their own learning. The value of SRL is in its emphasis on the individual as a pivotal agent in defining learning goals and strategies, recognizing as it does how that individual’s perceptions of him or herself alongside learning-task characteristics influence the quality of learning that emerges."

How Children Succeed: Grit,Curiosity,and the Hidden Power of Character [Paul Tough] on

 

This book just came out today.  I  have heard about it from several people, including Wendy Kopp of Teach for America. 

 

The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs.

But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter most have more to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, conscientiousness, optimism, and self-control.

Here you will find the document, Oakland Schools Guidance: Eligibility Determination for a Specific Learning Disability (referred to as the OS SLD Guidance), accompanying documents such as Frequently Asked Questions and many templates and resources.

  Purpose The Oakland Schools Guidance: Eligibility Determination for a Specific Learning Disability document and the accompanying resources were created to both to assist districts in complying with all state rules and federal regulations regarding SLD, and to encourage districts to make a long-term plan for reshaping identification practices.   It is not intended to mandate an approach, nor is it intended to establish a single methodology for SLD identification across the county.   You can order a copy of the document here:  http://events.oakland.k12.mi.us/fop/fop_p2_form.aspx?sessionid=ej3fb2fe9fc0fe7fc9ff8fdl

Deliberate practice makes perfect; monitor with problem solving model! | School Psychology in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

While it may be true that there are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going, there certainly are ways of needlessly prolonging the journey. We often waste lots of time because nobody ever taught us the most effective and efficient way to practice.  Deliberate practice is the way to go.

 

Article defines deliberate practice; also indicates that using the problem solving model to monitor gains is a must!

"Today, most educational systems are designed to work from the microscopic to the macroscopic. Students learn facts and figures and tiny fractions of knowledge long before anyone really puts things into a larger context....We are entering an era of customization. With digitally-delivered education, every student can learn however they want, whenever they want. Or, at least, that’s the promise."

Our ignorance of learning disabilities

Our ignorance of learning disabilities | School Psychology in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Raising the achievement of students with learning disabilities is hard, expensive, controversial and complex. School systems must pay private school tuition for students they can’t adequately serve. Educators and parents sometimes disagree on what methods to use. Education writers like me rarely deal with the subject because it is difficult to explain and lacks many success stories.
