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) | Teaching Resources Websites | 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."

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

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

David Baker's curator insight, March 15, 7:21 PM

This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers | Teaching Resources Websites | Scoop.it

Via Beth Dichter

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 17, 2013 10:50 PM

What if instead of giving homework to our students we asked them to come up with ideas? This chart provides a variety of alternative ways to look at homework. The post describes this as "Rather than simply a list of alternatives to homework, it instead contextualizes the need for work at home (or, “homework”). It does this by taking typical classroom situations–the introduction of new material, demonstrating a procedure, etc.), and offering alternatives to traditional homework assignments."

Consider asking your students what they would suggest doing instead of homework. What might you be able to add to these suggestions?

 

Nancy Jones's curator insight, June 19, 2013 9:40 AM

Love this! 21st century learning isn't as much about technology as it is thinking .allowing choices and options like this not only allow students choices but the opportunity for deeper thinking.

Laura Jane's curator insight, December 16, 2013 12:17 AM

I stole this from Jamie, and couldn't agree more! What a great [and practical] resource to have as we go into the final semester of our internships. This chart is chock full of ideas for creating more authentic and less monotonous homework for students. It focuses on reinforcing, and not memorizing. 

 

These strategies could work for all grade levels, to different extents. This again addresses the quality vs quantity debate. One of my favorite examples is to reinforce a skill that has been taught. It suggests that, instead of asking students to solve 10 word probelms to prove that they know a skill, to have them work in groups to solve, model, and present one deeper thinking word probelm.

 

This allows students to work in harmony to formulate their ideas, and is a more productive approach to learning. Although some cognitive struggle is good, too much leads to frustration and defeat. Allowing students to work together helps them to actively participate in student-centered learning, and they can better understand what they've learned. I will definitely be printing this chart to put in my lesson planning binder.

Nature's Engineers – Google Green | Teaching Resources Websites | Scoop.it

"This Earth Day, we’re celebrating something close to our hearts, engineers. Whether it’s a towering aspen or a tiny mushroom, nature has plenty to teach us. We're taking a look at six of our favorite outdoor innovators to see how we can follow their lead and treat the earth better."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 23, 2013 9:30 PM

For Earth Day this year Google has created a website "looking at some of our favorite engineers from nature to see how they can teach us to treat the environment better...see the beauty and ingenuity of the natural world through photos from National Geographic. We also want to provide easy ways to be greener in our own lives, so this site shows us how we can all be like those organisms by taking simple actions to care for the environment." (This quote is from Google's official blog.)

The images are amazing and you can "visit" two sites, South Africa, home of the "smart eaters", more commonly referred to as elephants and the Great Barrier Reef, home to the "ride sharers", also known as remora fish.
