5 Movement Strategies That Get Students Thinking

5 Movement Strategies That Get Students Thinking | Teaching 2012 and Beyond | 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."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 28, 9:19 PM

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.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 27, 2014 1:20 PM

These are really not new, but they are always worth repeating. What is new is perhaps the intensity and frequency with which they happen. The cross-cultural awareness is certainly the case. What works for me culturally does not work for someone half-way around the world. In fact, it might not work here. Educators  need to be aware of that cross-cultural awareness.

Lena Leirdal's curator insight, August 30, 2014 6:36 AM

I love infographics! Learn - create - collaborate!

 

Right 'up the alley' when addressing 21st century skills. I find particularly the "learn"-part interesting: the need for skills to "access, evaluate and use different forms of information, exihbit fluency with tech tools, and exercise critical thinking". Definately a focus relevant for my master´s thesis.

The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking

The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking | Teaching 2012 and Beyond | Scoop.it

"Big idea: Teaching kids to ask smart questions on their own

A four-year-old asks on average about 400 questions per day, and an adult hardly asks any. Our school system is structured around rewards for regurgitating the right answer, and not asking smart questions – in fact, it discourages asking questions. With the result that as we grow older, we stop asking questions. Yet asking good questions is essential to find and develop solutions, and an important skill in innovation, strategy, and leadership. So why do we stop asking questions – and more importantly, why don’t we train each other, and our future leaders, to ask the right questions starting from early on?"

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, February 8, 10:18 PM

A four-year-old asks, on average, 400 questions a day. By the time he or she reaches adulthood, they will ask very few per day. Speaking as someone who’s probably never going to grow up, allow me to emphasize that:

  • Why questions help to find the root of a problem
  • What If questions open up the floor for creative solutions
  • How questions focus on developing practical solutions
Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, February 9, 11:11 AM

Anything that gives students a chance to ask their own questions is a good idea in my opinion.  When the questions invoke critical thinking, it's a double bonus!  Also, writing these questions on any pre-made box would work.  No need to be crafty with scissors and tape.

Simon Awuyo's curator insight, February 11, 2:04 PM

Why It's Time To Put Students In The Driver's Seat

Why It's Time To Put Students In The Driver's Seat | Teaching 2012 and Beyond | Scoop.it
Think about how you or the people you work with approach the creation of a blended learning lesson plan. The first steps of coming up with and flushing out your initial idea. Then, scouring the web to find safe, factually accurate sites that are not blocked by your school filters and checking the fine print …

 

This method of teaching does require a certain amount of bravery. There is a very real chance that when a student asks you a question (How do I add media? How do I change the font? How do I import pictures? etc. etc.) you will have to say the dreaded “I don’t know”. But the neat thing is, your students are ok with this. You’re all learning as you go. More often than not another child in the class will be using the same site or will have at least used it before. If a classmate knows the answer, they can step into the role of teacher – from which much confidence is gained and leadership skills are learned.


Even the most reserved kid really enjoys teaching their teacher a trick or two. If no one knows the answer, they can collaborate to find the solution; an activity that provides important life skills with many real-world applications. All while leaving the initiative, process development and ownership of the learning itself right where it belongs, in the hands of the learners.


Gust MEES: I started with it in 2002 already and was a pioneer in my country, BUT I got BEST results! Make sure to work TOGETHER as a TEAM with the students, learners, create ALSO some groups where the BEST work together with the weakest. YOU will love it later and YOU will miss it as it gives YOU a direct feedback of WHAT THEY learned and YOU adjust on demand and necessity... WHEN the BEST feel boring, give THEM a special task to motivate THEM ;) ===> Adjust <===.


Concerning the questions from the students, please check my advice here:

10 Tips For A Smarter iPad-Based Classroom - TeachThought | Teaching 2012 and Beyond | Scoop.it

"When I first raised my hand to pilot my middle school’s first 1:1 classroom, I knew it was going to be bumpy.  

 

After all, I am a practitioner of content, not a tech guru. But the way I see it, I work to not only help guide students to unveil the subject matter (consume), I also work to be up on the most current ways to communicate that content (create). Hence, my willingness to jump out of my wheelhouse, the shallow end of the ed tech pool, and into the deep end of total tech immersion.

 

The only way to learn was to jump in and jump in early, so I raised my hand."
