5 Movement Strategies That Get Students Thinking

5 Movement Strategies That Get Students Thinking | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

"Each day more research confirms the link between movement and learning. Brain researcher David Sousa claims that physical activity increases the amount of oxygen in our blood, and this oxygen is related to enhanced learning and memory. A recent Washington Post article suggests that many student behaviors we associate with ADHD may stem from an overall lack of physical movement  – both in and out of school. In addition, a phenomenally popular blog post by Alexis Wiggins recently touched upon how much sitting students actually do every day, and how all that sitting affects energy levels and learning."

What would happen if you incorporated more movement in your classroom, providing students opportunities to get up from their seat and physically move their body? Based on current brain research you may find your students more engaged in their learning. This post provides five suggestions on activities you can incorporate into lessons to allow students opportunities to move. What are they?

1. Gallery Walks/Chalk Talks

2. White Board Meetings

3. North Pole-South Pole/Continuum

4. Musical Mingle

5.  Stations

Each is explained in detail in the post. Do you have ideas on how movement can be incorporated into lessons? If so, share them in the comment section.

10 tendencias para a aprendizagem mista

Minha tendencia favoita  é :

e a sua ?

#avancee

Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 2014 1:20 AM

Of these 10 proposed drivers, I an guessing that the most important will be #5 and #6. At least for the time being, universities are really strapped for funds. Consider for # 5 a 'MOOC-Based wrapped course' where a prof assigns a MOOC as homework, and then  meets with the class one day a week = and follows up with a couple of weeks of class time at the end for projects and examinations. This strikes me as a  good division of labor in many courses - letting the high production videos do what they do best and the prof do what demands a human mind and heart for problem solving and coaching and mentoring. It can reduce faculty time by more than 1/2 without loss of quality. Now for #6, consider a group of twenty faculty members teaching wrapped courses based on the very same MOOC. They will have many questions and concerns and they can (a) find each other and (b) address them collectively through their learning network. The only other 'driver' that floats my boat at this point is #3. Many students like MOOC-based courses. The lectures are excellent and fit conveniently into schedules, and the professor is available to serve his or her most important functions. But I wouldn't oversell this. Many students still prefer day to day hand holding and may actually need it from a socio-emotional perspective to stay engaged in the course. So I'm betting on #5 and #6 as most important.

Edmodo is free and offers you a simple virtual learning environment where your students can share ideas and collaborate together. It has a very similar interface to Facebook and so your students will pick it up easily. What's more, students to do need provide their emails. It is really easy to create a group and then invite your students to join the group. You can create separate groups for each class you teach. What is more amazing is that it is free. You can create quizzes, polls, add up important dates to the calendar, run discussions and share links, videos, articles etc.

50+ Tools for Differentiating Instruction Through Social Media - Edutopia

50+ Tools for Differentiating Instruction Through Social Media - Edutopia | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
Imagine a world where resources were limited to what was found in the classroom or the school closet known as the "Curriculum Materials Room." Picture a world where students wrote letters with pen and paper to communicate with other students and adults outside of the building. Due to postage costs, the teacher either sent the letters in bulk or paid for stamps out of his or her own pocket. Can you recall a time when student interests like skateboarding or video were never used as part of learning curriculum because the tools needed were either too expensive or not yet conceptualized? Do you remember a time when non-traditional learners struggled, and absenteeism meant a high likelihood of students doing poorly in school, and possibly having to retake the course?

Using grammar correctly could be challenging may be not for those who are English native speaker, but surely for those who learn English from scratch. English language and its difficulties can be very much puzzling. Although, a dictionary or software can assist learners but it cannot give accurate answer. In fact, word processing programs are not very much effective in correcting grammar errors completely.
