Productive Failure: The Best Way To Learn Math

Productive Failure: The Best Way To Learn Math | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"Singapore, the land of many math geniuses, may have discovered the secret to learning mathematics (pdf). It employs a teaching method called productive failure (pdf), pioneered by Manu Kapur, head of the Learning Sciences Lab at the National Institute of Education of Singapore. Students who are presented with unfamiliar concepts, asked to work through them, and then taught the solution significantly outperform those who are taught through formal instruction and problem-solving. The approach is both utterly intuitive—we learn from mistakes—and completely counter-intuitive: letting kids flail around with unfamiliar math concepts seems both inefficient and potentially damaging to their confidence. Kapur believes that struggle activates parts of the brain that trigger deeper learning. Students have to figure out three critical things: what they know, the limits of what they know, and exactly what they do not know. Floundering first elevates the learning from knowing a formula to understanding it, and applying it in unfamiliar contexts." | by Jenny Anderson

Another great article about the growth in failure and the power of resiliency.

Shoud the process of recognizing your mistake and explaining your corrections should be worth as much or more than the product - that all or nothing "right" answer?

Revisiting Khan Academy with a Clean Slate

Revisiting Khan Academy with a Clean Slate | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

I encourage readers to forget everything they have heard about KA and revisit the site with a fresh perspective. More importantly, I hope this article sparks conversation about how technology is used in your school this year. This is just one example of using technology to differentiate student outcomes, and meeting the needs of each individual student are driving this approach. Some teachers can get caught up in the latest ed tech resources and forget to prioritize educational value above all else. Read more about not falling into the trap of cool tools rather than learning in this Connect IT article.

Rik Rowe takes us on his personal learning journey in his HS math class where he has created learning environments where every learner is valued. He notes that they start building a strong Culture of Learning in the 1st 5 days (#1st5days) that enables everyone "to respect each other, depend on each other, challenge each other and value each other's contributions."


Discover how he personalizes the learning for every learner by giving them voice and choice and where learners take responsibility for their learning. Join Rik in the 5 W's of Personalized Learning eCourse this fall.
