Five Research-Driven Education Trends At Work in Classrooms

Five Research-Driven Education Trends At Work in Classrooms | Teaching | Scoop.it
Increasingly, educators are looking to research about how kids learn to influence teaching practices and tools.

 

Increasingly, educators are looking to research about how kids learn to influence teaching practices and tools. What seemed like on-the-fringe experiments, like game-based learning, have turned into real trends, and have gradually made their way into many (though certainly not most) classrooms.

 

BRAIN-BASED TEACHING

Many educators are using researchers’ insights into how children best learn to inform their teaching practices. Stanford professor Carol Dweck’s research on encouraging children to develop a growth-mindset continues to grow in popularity, as educators try to praise effort, not outcomes.

 

Dweck writes that if children believe their abilities are fixed — that either that they’re smart or they’re not — they approach the world in different ways and aren’t as able to face adversity. When they believe skills and abilities can grow throughout one’s lifetime, they’re better able to rise to challenges.

 

Brainology, Dweck’s program, is just one of many such school-based programs that teachers can use in classrooms, as is Brainworks.

OpenEd | Worlds Largest K-12 Open Educational Resources

OpenEd | Worlds Largest K-12 Open Educational Resources | Teaching | Scoop.it

OpenEd is the largest K-12 educational resource catalog, with over a million Common Core-aligned videos, games and assessments. While it integrates with all popular Learning Management Systems it offers its own simple “flipped classroom” LMS oriented to using resources.

 

It is the the only site focused on offering Common Core and other standard aligned resources, so it has many more times Common Core videos, games and assessments than any other catalog.

10 Mind Mapping Strategies For Teachers

10 Mind Mapping Strategies For Teachers | Teaching | Scoop.it

The adoption of Mind Maps in teaching has grown recently due to the benefits of using Mind Maps to learn and the availability of free online mind mapping software.

 

Teachers have recognized the value of using Mind Maps to engage students, encourage creativity and, most importantly, teaching how to learn rather simply memorizing content.

 

Mind Maps have even been integrated into emerging teaching techniques such as the Flipped Classroom and Design Thinking as outlined in the Mind Map on the right.

How do teachers harness the full power of Mind Mapping?

 

Below is some ideas on how teachers and student can use Mind Maps both in and out of the classroom.

This is a brief overview of how and why to use mind maps to support student learning.  I've seen mind maps used in every elementary classroom I've visited.  This article adds familiarity but more depth is needed.

               1. There are many uses for an ipad in the classroom. The ipad can help both the student and teacher. The students learn more,  can do more, and work together and get more than just there ideas out.  Students learn more from viewing more detailed presentations, they can see different parts of the world while just sitting at there desk, learn about whats happening in the world at that exact moment, practice problems and record notes. They can do more because with the ipads they can create more complex documents and presentations also they can have blogs and voice there own opinions to a broader audience.  Students get to work together with other people by using live broadcasts or making there own websites also they can use websites such as google docs to work with other students without actually being with them. If the ipads are used right they can be extremely helpful but teachers still need to watch and make sure the student stays on track when using the electronic device.

Considering how integrated technology has become in even basic courses, it seems pointless to resist lest one become outdated and useless as a teacher.
