A site to help students understand how diverse the world is - and particularly, that the English language is not the dominant language in the world! The use of infographics - data presented visually - help students compare languages across the world. 

Simone Percy's curator insight, April 30, 10:56 PM

Good visual to represent the number of people speaking languages around the world.

Fatal silence: Why do so many fortysomething men kill themselves?

Fatal silence: Why do so many fortysomething men kill themselves? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Suicide claims a worrying number of lives, with men much more at risk than women in the UK. Simon Jack, whose father killed himself, has tried to find out why.

What I didn't realise until recently was that suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 50. A hundred men die a week. It is more prevalent than at any time in the last 14 years and men are four times more likely to end their own lives than women.

Save the Last Word for Me: Encouraging Students to Engage with Complex Reading and Each Other | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Online discussions are often implemented in college classes to allow students to express their understanding and perceptions about the assigned readings. This can be challenging when the reading is particularly complex, as students are typically reluctant to share their interpretations because they are not confident in their understanding. This can inhibit meaningful interactions with peers within an online discussion.

this is on point. in today's generation school has become a chore, not because it is boring or uninteresting (and it is) but because that is how we were raised to think. school is supposed to "suck" and we are supposed to hate it with a fiery passion. but if we could integrate the [arts kids love about school into the subjects we don't  believe that kids could learn to be excited about Knowledge and the expanse if possibility it holds.

What Will Education Look Like in a More Open Future? - About Education Degrees

What Will Education Look Like in a More Open Future? - About Education Degrees | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In his MindShift article, David Price (author of OPEN: How We’ll Work, Live And Learn In The Future) considers what open learning systems – as productivity and innovation drivers – would look like for educators:

Open learning systems apply the same learning principles to their professionals as they do to their students. They understand that the only sustainable transformation in education has to be owned by the people who have to implement it: teachers. They have high expectations of the profession’s capacity to learn through transparent, shared practice, and of their ability to rise to additional responsibilities. They have the humility to accept that learning now happens everywhere, anytime, and they work hard to integrate informal learning into the formal environment.

Webtools: No Registration Needed for Students

Webtools: No Registration Needed for Students | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Welcome to my list of webtools that don’t require student registration. This started off as a simple curation for myself and has ballooned into something that I never thought would get this big. And it is still growing. 

While I do try to verify each link on a regular basis, please be aware that websites do change and some of these sites may no longer be active or may have switched to a paid version. Also, some of these sites rely on advertisements and so be careful when using with younger students. To make it on this list, a site must be:

Free. There may be paid versions, but there is an option to use without paying.Without the need for students to give their email address. Teachers may have to register, but there is an option for students to either sign-in or use without giving their own email address or log-in with their Facebook/Google/Twitter/etc. account.For the most part, interactive or creative. The ideal tool allows the student to express themselves through creation, but some of these tools are for teachers only.Completely online. There should be no need to install something to make it work. Some of these sites require things like Flash or Java which are on most desktop and laptop computers, but are normally not accessible on a tablet or phone.

The 10 Biggest Breakthroughs in the Science of Learning - Brainscape Blog

The 10 Biggest Breakthroughs in the Science of Learning - Brainscape Blog | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Greater understanding of our brain’s functioning, abilities, and limitations allows us to constantly improve our teaching skills and the productivity of our study sessions and working hours (and after-work hours). 


When it comes to human organs, none is quite so mysterious as the brain. For centuries, humans have had numerous misconceptions and misunderstandings about how the organ works, grows, and shapes our ability to learn and develop. While we still have a long way to go before we truly unravel all the mysteries the brain has to offer, scientists have been making some major breakthroughs that have gone a long way in explaining both how the brain functions and how we use it to organize, recall, and acquire new information.


Here, we list just a few of the biggest and most impactful of these breakthroughs that have contributed to our understanding of the science of learning.

Wouldn't it be great if creating infographics was just as simple as writing regular ole text-based blog posts? Unfortunately, the reality is that making visual content like this usually takes a lot more time, effort, and let's face it -- skill -- than the written word. 

 

Usually.But considering the popularity and effectiveness of visual content in marketing today, you can't just afford to throw in the towel. That's why we decided to take all the pain and suffering out of infographic creation.

Robert Gagne’s Nine Steps of Instruction: Do’s and Don’ts in E-Learning | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"In 1985, American educational psychologist Robert Gagne created a nine-step process of instructional design which can guide the process of learning. The process is called ‘The Events of Instruction’ where in each event has a definite purpose of supporting learning and leads to definite outcomes.

 

Gagne’s model can serve as guidelines to creating a result-oriented e-learning instructional design for workplace training too. Below are the Nine Events of Instruction and the Do’s and Don’ts that must be kept in mind:"

At a conference of university leaders in early 2013, Tony Abbott promised “relative policy stability” in higher education if he became prime minister. When it came, though, the Coalition’s first budget proposed cutting university funding by a breathtaking 20 per cent and removing the ceiling on university fees.

Looked at over time and ranked against other OECD countries, public funding of Australian universities is at a record-breaking low.
