@anniemurphypaul Do you know these smart learning strategies? | THE STUDY SMART SMORGASBORD | Scoop.it

".....anytime a student learns, he or she has to bring in two kinds of prior knowledge: knowledge about the subject at hand (say, mathematics or history) and knowledge about how learning works. Parents and educators are pretty good at imparting the first kind of knowledge. We’re comfortable talking about concrete information: names, dates, numbers, facts. But the guidance we offer on the act of learning itself—the “metacognitive” aspects of learning—is more hit-or-miss, and it shows....."


Via Lou Salza
Say Keng Lee's insight:

According to the research, ''It’s not just what you know. It’s what you know about what you know.''

 

The latter is known as ''metacognition'', which is illustrated in the article.

Lou Salza's curator insight, October 7, 2013 9:05 AM

This is so important especially for students who struggle with dyslexia or ADHD.  ----Lou

Excerpt:

"...In our schools, "the emphasis is on what students need to learn, whereas little emphasis—if any—is placed on training students how they should go about learning the content and what skills will promote efficient studying to support robust learning," writes John Dunlosky, professor of psychology at Kent State University in Ohio, in an article just published in American Educator. However, he continues, "teaching students how to learn is as important as teaching them content, because acquiring both the right learning strategies and background knowledge is important—if not essential—for promoting lifelong learning..."

n their own study, Askell-Williams and her coauthors took as their subjects 1,388 Australian high school students. They first administered an assessment to find out how much the students knew about cognitive and metacognitive learning strategies—and found that their familiarity with these tactics was “less than optimal....”

"...Students can assess their own awareness by asking themselves which of the following learning strategies they regularly use (the response to each item is ideally “yes”):
• I draw pictures or diagrams to help me understand this subject.
• I make up questions that I try to answer about this subject.
• When I am learning something new in this subject, I think back to what I already know about it.
• I discuss what I am doing in this subject with others.
• I practice things over and over until I know them well in this subject.
• I think about my thinking, to check if I understand the ideas in this subject.
• When I don’t understand something in this subject I go back over it again.
• I make a note of things that I don’t understand very well in this subject, so that I can follow them up.
• When I have finished an activity in this subject I look back to see how well I did.
• I organize my time to manage my learning in this subject.
• I make plans for how to do the activities in this subject.

Askell-Williams and her colleagues found that those students who used fewer of these strategies reported more difficulty coping with their schoolwork...."

Doodling: A Teacher's Secret Weapon for Unlocking Learning | Edudemic | THE STUDY SMART SMORGASBORD | Scoop.it
Say Keng Lee's insight:

In fact, I believe from my own experience over the years, doodling - frankly I prefer the term, graphic or visual note-making - is a student's WMD (Weapon of Massive Deconstruction), especially when it comes down to information gathering and knowledge acquisition from any reading or learning pursuit. It helps the student to deconstruct or simplify massive information deluge into manageable - and most importantly, easy-to-grasp - components during the reading or learning process.

The best way for students to become writers

The best way for students to become writers | THE STUDY SMART SMORGASBORD | Scoop.it
The answer may surprise you.
Say Keng Lee's insight:

I share her sentiment:

"... I still believe that the best way for students to become writers is by reading as much good writing as possible and internalizing the various structures and techniques they encounter. For extras, the habit of reading will also increase their vocabulary, improve their spelling, and help them grasp the fact that many of the conventions of written language are different from those of spoken language... "

To me, her advisory applies aptly to working professionals as well.
