Does Losing Handwriting In School Mean Losing Other Skills Too? | Articles i Recursos Educatius | Scoop.it
Learning to write by hand has learning benefits that could be neglected if too much focus is put on keyboarding.

This is an ongoing discussion between my English Teacher friend and I.  I think the real question is why are we still teaching keyboarding??

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 12, 10:21 PM

It is becoming clearer that it is important that we do not lose  handwriting as a skill! Strong positive neural development in a child is far more important than adeptness in using digital technologies. If research continues to support these initial studies many educators will need to reflect and possibly readjust.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 11:57 AM

New evidence suggests that the links between handwriting and broader educational development run deep. Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information. In other words, it’s not just what we write that matters — but how.

Taking notes? Bring a pen, skip the computer - The Boston Globe

Taking notes? Bring a pen, skip the computer - The Boston Globe | Articles i Recursos Educatius | Scoop.it
It’s hard to blame students for wanting to type notes instead of write them out longhand. Think of how much quicker you can type an e-mail than write a letter: Digital note-taking is simply easier. A paper published online in the journal Psychological Science last month, however, suggests that longhand may actually hold an advantage when it comes to the most important reason we take notes—that is, to help us remember what we’ve heard. What Pam Mueller of Princeton University and Daniel Oppenheimer of UCLA’s Anderson School of Management observed is an illuminating example of what psychologists call “desirable difficulty”—the fact that sometimes, obstacles that frustrate us actually help us learn.

Yes, and YES!!! Critical thinking really takes risk, because someone is likely to disagree with you. How much better it is, however, to have a well thought opinion and stand alone, than to be a lemming.

A really excellent article on something that can be hard to define and practice, and yet is such an essential skill for life.   I really like the distinction Terry Heick makes between thought and knowledge and the interplay between them.

Sue Gould's curator insight, June 19, 2:09 PM

The face of educational instruction is changing once again.  The relaxed manner in which these notes are representing important content is fabulous.  A cirle is almost complete - as a child this sort of doodling in class was stopped and a punishable offense!  Yet so many tutors, educators, and trainers are idealists and visualise while learning and observing the world around them.  It is great to see that this representation of learning is on a comeback of acceptance.

A Quick, No-Nonsense Guide to Basic Instructional Design Theory | Articles i Recursos Educatius | Scoop.it

"Of the many eLearning theories that influence the practice, three of them are used by professionals on a daily basis...Practice and theory actually goes hand in hand. This is true not only in instructional design but in any other field or discipline. Theory, far from crippling your practice, will actually help you improve the quality of your eLearning material. While a learning theory won't answer all of your design problems, it offers clarity throughout your process and directs you toward finding solutions."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 4, 7:02 AM

Learn more about three learning theories of instructional design in this post:

* Constructivism

* Cognitivism

* Behaviorism

Why? Each theory looks at "HOW" students learn. Understanding the theories helps you design activities that will help learners move forward in their learning process.

The infographic provides a definition for each of the theories and then provides ideas on what each theory helps the learner practice.

As with most infographics from SHIFT's eLearning Blog, this post also provides additional information on each of the three theories as well as links to additional resources.

Explore this post to better understand why these theories are important to all teachers, in online learning, blended learning and face2face situation.

Student Autonomy

Student Autonomy | Articles i Recursos Educatius | Scoop.it
Empowering Students In the Classroom

 

When I think of change that needs to happen in Education, my immediate thought goes toward student autonomy. To be autonomous as a student is to be able to independently manage the freedom one has in the classroom, while maintaining a harmonious relationship with the teacher.

 

For a student to be autonomous, a student must realize:

They have a voiceTheir voice mattersIt will be heardIt will make a difference

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 1, 9:54 AM

Student autonomy happens with teacher autonomy. Gert Biesta proposes democracy happens in classrooms where it is lived and modeled. It is not a distant process. The word is not autonomy but emancipation which is responsible for the Other and the world we live in.

Stevi Quate's curator insight, July 2, 6:28 AM

When John McDermott and I wrote Clock Watchers and The Just Right Challenge, we wrote about empowering students and captured similar ideas to this posting. Since these ideas aren't new and seem to be shared widely, I wonder why these ideas aren't the norm in classrooms that we watch.

When their teenager struggles with anxiety or depression, many parents will blame themselves for the trouble. But a new study suggests that a

This year’s “The Learning Curve” report from Pearson takes a look at education across the globe. One of the main things the report does is rank the world’s educational systems (which we’ll talk about in a different post). What I find even more interesting is the focus on what skills current students need to meet the ever changing needs of the global market, and some potential ways to address shortcomings in our collective educational systems.


ChristopherBell's curator insight, June 12, 5:24 PM

Interesting that Pearson feels compelled to 'Rank the world's educational systems' when they are supplying so much of the world's schools with curriculum - ironic?
