10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

What is it that help students pay attention?

* Problem solving

* Comparisons

* Visuals

* Questions

* Emotions

* Stories

* Contrast

* Controversy

* Brevity

* Lists

Mark Treadwell's curator insight, July 27, 3:47 PM

A great list of elements that contribute to a good prompt. Prompts initiate curiosity via the stimulation of the release of hormones that trigger astrocytic cells (75% of all brain cells) in the brain to trigger neurons to map and automate complex neural patterns we call ideas and concepts. MT

Car Pollution Linked to Autism

Car Pollution Linked to Autism | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Children exposed to higher levels of air pollution early in life may have an increased risk of autism, a new study suggests.  In the study, children living in areas with high levels of traffic-generated air pollution during their first year of life were three times more likely to have autism than children living in areas with low levels.

There was also a link between exposure to air pollution in the womb — particularly during late pregnancy — and an increased risk of autism, according to the study.

Brain Activity Differs in Infant Siblings of Children with Autism

Brain Activity Differs in Infant Siblings of Children with Autism | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A new study shows that infants as young as 6 months who are siblings of children with autism have different patterns of brain activity compared to infants who do not have a sibling with autism. These differences in brain activity were present even in infant siblings who did not go on to develop autism. Thus, they may reflect genetic differences that are shared by children with autism and their younger siblings.

Minecraft In Education: How Video Games Are Teaching Kids | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
MINECON 2012: Some enterprising teachers are using Minecraft to teach subjects like physics, geography, and English language, and with promising results.

There are many positive aspects of games -- such as increased hand-eye coordination and social problem solving.  At Minecon, some attendees have taken the next step by using Minecraft to aid them in teaching children. It's a bold move, and one that's encountered some resistance, but they've seen some very positive results: increased attention levels, better collaboration with other students, and of course, better grades.

mobiMOOC - course on mobile learning

mobiMOOC - course on mobile learning | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

MobiMOOC 2012: a free, open, online course on mobile learning - three weeks and 12 topics all related to mLearning.

 

If you visit this wiki, you probably want to register for the free, open and online MobiMOOC course which will run from Saturday 8 September - Sunday 30 September 2012 and will focus on learning/training with mobile devices (mLearning).

 

Dynamics of the course:

a MOOC is all about dialogue, discussions and building upon each others experiences. We all have lived long enough to know more of certain areas than others. In a MOOC we come together to enhance our knowledge on a certain field by entering dialogues, enhancing our networks and ... having fun while doing it. As such each of the resources given by the facilitators or guides-on-the-side are just possible stepping stones, not the universal truth. By gathering together each one of us will grow by communicating with each other. Looking forward to all our discussions and insights!
