Confessions of a Converted Lecturer: Eric Mazur

I thought I was a good teacher until I discovered my students were just memorizing information rather than learning to understand the material. Who was to blame? The students? The material? I will explain how I came to the agonizing conclusion that the culprit was neither of these. It was my teaching that caused students to fail! I will show how I have adjusted my approach to teaching and how it has improved my students' performance significantl

Donald Clark Plan B: Clickers: formative feedback key to better learning

Donald Clark Plan B: Clickers: formative feedback key to better learning | The Feedback Generation | Scoop.it

Earlier, we saw how Victorian slates were used as whole class feedback devices, when students were asked to complete a writing task and hold the slates up in the air for perusal by the teacher. Clickers perform the same function electronically. It is a profoundly learner-centric piece of technology, which also happens to be an effective device for shaping teaching.

Educational Leadership:Feedback for Learning:Finessing Feedback

Educational Leadership:Feedback for Learning:Finessing Feedback | The Feedback Generation | Scoop.it
In this issue of Educational Leadership, we learn a lot about what feedback is and is not. It is not praise ("Good job!"); advice ("Try doing x"); judgment (the infamous "AWK" for "Awkward"); or even inference ("You must have been tired when you did this"). And it is not a grade or a number on a rating scale. The best feedback, our authors tell us, describes what the student has done and helps the student decide what to do next. Good feedback not only motivates, but also transfers a sense of agency to the learner.

From clickers to programs like Learning Catalytics—which data-mines to match students with discussion partners—student-response systems are becoming more and more sophisticated. But Liam Kaufman, a graduate of the University of Toronto, thinks that the key to effective feedback is a tool with fewer bells and whistles.

Think about the last time you had to study for a test or read a text passage that was difficult for you to comprehend. What strategies worked for you? Maybe you are a highlighter...and created pages of yellow and pink highlighted passages or notes. Or, perhaps you are a flashcard creator - going through piles of 3x5 cards as you memorize vocabulary or important dates. As your read the passage, did you find yourself going back and re-reading?

CIO-Asia - Gen Y and Z are technology spearheads: IDC

CIO-Asia - Gen Y and Z are technology spearheads: IDC | The Feedback Generation | Scoop.it

In emerging markets like Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia, members of Gen Y and Z, coined for people who were born in or after 1980, are spearheading the adoption of social networking and collaborative tools, according to Sandra Ng, group vice president - ICT practice, IDC Asia Pacific.


The populations within these emerging markets are dominated by a young middle class population. This means that they practically grew up accessing technology that is mainly cloud-based and "they can't tell the difference whether its cloud or not, and simply do not care," said Ng.


Meanwhile, on the enterprise IT side, the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend is still in its infancy, with many CIOs still looking at how to smoothly incorporate different and multiple mobile devices into their infrastructures.

What 'crowdsourcing' concepts can I use my classroom? | The Feedback Generation | Scoop.it

"How can you shift your classroom away from lecture and toward inquiry? You can get help from the modern phenomenon known as crowdsourcing—the practice of putting many minds to work on a single problem. Inquiry is, in effect, crowdsourcing in your classroom."
