Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply

Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply | Digital Cultures | Scoop.it

Students enlisted to tutor others, these researchers have found, work harder to understand the material, recall it more accurately and apply it more effectively. In a phenomenon that scientists have dubbed “the protégé effect,” student teachers score higher on tests than pupils who are learning only for their own sake.

Eric Mazur on new interactive teaching techniques

Eric Mazur on new interactive teaching techniques | Digital Cultures | Scoop.it

Mazur’s reinvention of the course drops the lecture model and deeply engages students in the learning/teaching endeavor. It starts from his view of education as a two-step process: information transfer, and then making sense of and assimilating that information. “In the standard approach, the emphasis in class is on the first, and the second is left to the student on his or her own, outside of the classroom,” he says. “If you think about this rationally, you have to flip that, and put the first one outside the classroom, and the second inside.

Richard Evans's insight:

'Eric Mazur says learning interests him far more than teaching, and he encourages a shift from "teaching" to "helping students learn.'

A Fabulous Flow Chart on How Students Should Use Images from The Web ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Fabulous Flow Chart on How Students Should Use Images from The Web ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Digital Cultures | Scoop.it

"Using multimedia is part and parcel of students work in the classroom. Several classroom projects now include curating resources, using images and videos. However, the use of such media materials is regulated and does require complying by certain rules and guidelines. The wrong idea that many of our students hold about using media in class must change. They need to learn that something being accessible, downloadable and free does not mean it is ok to use it with no restrictions.

For instance, when using images and pictures from the web, students need to learn how to properly give credit to their owners. The graphic below is a wonderful flow chart created byddd to help teachers teach their students about how to properly credit images they use. Enjoy"

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions | Digital Cultures | Scoop.it

As higher education has embraced online education as a way to reduce costs, increase flexibility, and enhance access to students it is important to gain an understanding of the perceptions of instructors moving into online teaching. This study found a change in the beliefs and teaching presence of the instructors from their initial resistance to online teaching to an approach which is mindful of the student experience and promotes a dialogical approach to online learning.

There are more benefits from implementing a blended learning approach than keeping the traditional teaching style; however, before incorporating online teaching into our classrooms, there are several factors teachers should take into account. Here is an interesting perspective offered by the University of Southern Queensland you might consider for the pedagogical transition.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, July 1, 2013 9:18 AM

Although this article relates to higher education, being aware of what digital literacies are; what level of digital literacies you and your students have and how to improve them, is also relevant to the ELT context. Be careful when introducing new technologies. Don't cognitively challange your language students to the extent that the technology is hindering their language learning. If you're convinced that a particular tool is going to add value to their learning, then perhaps first design a lesson or two around it to ensure that you and your students are comfortable with it. This can prevent unneccessary frustration and anxiety.

Ms. Corri's curator insight, July 4, 2013 2:53 PM

David Cook's curator insight, August 7, 2014 10:34 PM

I found this to be a lot of bark with no bite.  But that's may be because I'm already sold on the need for digital literacy in education, and am much more interested in reading about specific content, frameworks, curriculum, etc.

Interview with Tom Ashbrook

 

How education is jeopardizing creativity:

 

"I’m not blaming teachers for it. I’m not blaming school principals for it. I’ve worked in education my whole life and I work a lot with teachers in schools and I know they’re as concerned about this as I am and everbody else is. I think it’s to do with this culture of standardization. There is a view that the way we improve education is to make it more and more standardized. Many people in schools — particularly in this country, I’d say — are laboring under this sort of dead culture of continuous testing. And one of the results of it has been to reduce the curriculum, to narrow it. So a lot of the things that people, who may be be in their 40s or 50s, will remember from school — things like band and orchestra, putting on plays, lots of interesting after school activities — a lot of those things are being pushed out by this culture of standardized testing. It’s all done with an honorable purpose, I think — the intention is to raise standards, but the irony is it’s really not doing it. And more and more kids are pulling out of school. There’s more and more teachers, I feel, demoralized by it. And I know parents are very concerned about it too."

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, June 25, 2013 3:21 PM

The primary focus of education should be helping children to reach their full potential. That can't be done through standardization, because kids don't come in standard packages; it can only happen when we recognize that we need to meet each child's needs.

 

Standards have their place, but only with respect to the quality of what we offer to children and in ensuring that every child is offered the best possible education. Standards that restrict children's opportunities and growth need to be eliminated and replaced with an approach that enriches the educational environment for everyone.
