3 Ways to Become a More Effective Learner | #EffectiveLEARNing #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

We may graduate from school, but we never stop learning. New jobs, new roles, new relationships: all require the acquisition of new knowledge. To stop learning is to stop improving.


Despite its importance, so many of us develop bad habits and faulty techniques that undermine our ability learn effectively, says Nate Kornell, an associate professor of cognitive psychology at Williams College who studies learning strategies.

Below, Kornell outlines three fundamental principles to learn by. 

 

1. Embrace discomfort

2. Stop cramming

3. Make connections

The Chorus to Remember

Music can make a huge difference in your workday. Feel free to crank up the volume if noise has you working like a snail, you've got a case of the Monday's, or you've got something mundane or familiar to do. Ideally, though, make your playlists out of songs you already know, and if your tasks involve any sort of linguistic processing, focus on lyric-free options. Lastly, if you have something to learn, pump up your mood with music before you get started.

Who knew...and folks tell me to turn it down :-)

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, July 23, 5:12 AM

Classical or instrumental music enhances mental performance more than music with lyrics. Music can make rote or routine tasks (think folding laundry or filing papers) less boring and more enjoyable. Runners who listen to music go faster. But when you need to give learning and remembering your full attention, silence is golden

When Kids Have Structure for Thinking, Better Learning Emerges | #LEARNing2LEARN #LEARNingByDoing | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
“When we have a rich meta-strategic base for our thinking, that helps us to be more independent learners,” said Project Zero senior research associate Ron Ritchhart at a Learning and the Brain conference. “If we don’t have those strategies, if we aren’t aware of them, then we’re waiting for someone else to direct our thinking.”

Helping students to “learn how to learn” or in Ritchhart’s terminology, become “meta-strategic thinkers” is crucial for understanding and becoming a life-long learner. To discover how aware students are of their thinking at different ages, Ritchhart has been working with schools to build “cultures of thinking.” His theory is that if educators can make thinking more visible, and help students develop routines around thinking, then their thinking about everything will deepen.

His research shows that when fourth graders are asked to develop a concept map about thinking, most of their brainstorming centers around what they think and where they think it. “When students don’t have strategies about thinking, that’s how they respond – what they think and where they think,” Richhart said. Many fifth graders start to include broad categories of thinking on their concept maps like “problem solving” or “understanding.” Those things are associated with thinking, but fifth graders often haven’t quite hit on the process of thinking.

Lina Kherfan's curator insight, April 3, 8:19 PM
this article talks about the importance of how children think and learn. the author stresses on the fact that for better learning, students need to have a better structure for learning, hence the title. the author states students often do not have a good structure for thinking. students tend just to memorize things and don't know how to do deep learning. the author states that teachers only teach one part of this structure. which is thinking about thinking. the structre for better thinking is not only thinking about thinking though, there is more to it. the only part of it is to monitoring and directing thinking. " When a student is reading and stops to realize he’s not really understanding the meaning behind the words, that’s monitoring. And most powerfully, directing thinking happens when students can call upon specific thinking strategies to redirect or challenge their own thinking."  monitoring is being able to check up on yourself and regulate your own learning and directing is when students can take charge of their learning and direct it to what works for them in their self learning. this article talks about the importance of deeper thinking and learning and then switches to how educators can help with the process. i chose this article because i think that it is an important thing for students in K-12 grades. in my highschool, my graduating year, they had put in place a program called common core, which emphasizes this specific topic in student learning. sadly i was not able to partake in it however i do think that it is important for incoming students learn how to think and learn deeper.

Ambiverts have introverted and extroverted traits, but neither trait is dominant. As a result, they have more balanced, or nuanced, personalities. They aren’t the folks yammering your ear off. Nor are they the totally silent ones happily ensconced in the corner.

Ambiverts move between being social or being solitary, speaking up or listening carefully with greater ease than either extroverts or introverts. “It is like they’re bilingual,” says Daniel Pink, a business book author and co-host of Crowd Control, a TV series on human behavior, who has studied ambiversion. “They have a wider range of skills and can connect with a wider range of people in the same way someone who speaks English and Spanish can.”

Education, like life itself, should not be a spectator sport. Merely listening or even reading may create the illusion of learning, but without active engagement, retention of course material, or the ability to apply it, is laughably low. Students who engage in hands-on activities understand concepts more deeply and remember them more accurately.
 
Project-based, case-based, and team-based learning and problem-solving are activity-based approaches to teaching and learning, allowing students to become creators of knowledge rather than mere recipients of knowledge.
 
Students might annotate a text or play or work of art, map and analyze data, visually represent change over time, document a neighborhood or community. The web can then make student projects and research publicly accessible.
 
By learning by doing can take even richer forms. A solver community brings together students and faculty to “crowdsource” innovative solutions to the critical challenges of our time. Tackling a real-world challenge is a proven way to nurture a community of engage, creative learners. One of the broader goals is to transform a class of students into a knowledge network, an ongoing community that can continue to partner and share expertise and insights.
 
Then there are maker spaces. These are innovation greenhouses, incubators, or accelerators where innovators – whether faculty, students, staff, or others from outside the campus – can work individually or collaborative on projects in a supportive environment.
 
A new kind of student populates many campuses defined not by demographic characteristics, but by mindset and aspirations. Extraordinarily entrepreneurial, these students, in their spare time, create apps, found start-ups, and devise creative solutions to a host of pressing environmental, health, and technology problems.

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
What is professional development?  It is pretty much anything that helps one develop professionally. At the heart, professional development is about growth and learning.  In the field of education, it seems like many quickly think of educational opportunities that mimic what they see in their schools. As a result, they turn professional learning and education into schooling.  The problem with that is that schooling is too limiting.  In this age, there are many other exciting and high-impact learning opportunities for teachers that extend beyond traditional notions of schooling.  When we hear the phrase “professional development,” certain practices likely come to mind, things like in-services and conferences. In the digital age, there are countless other opportunities for professional development and restricting one’s thoughts to just a few options limits our insight into what is possible for our students.  With that in mind, here is a brainstorm of 20 options available to educators today. This is far from an exhaustive list, but it is enough to start exploring the possibilities.  Feel free to suggest others in a comment to this post.

20 scénarios d'accompagnement au développement professionnel de l'enseignant. Des idées très intéressantes et moins documentées y figurent ...

Gilles Le Page's curator insight, April 27, 3:20 AM

c'est en anglais, pas vraiment génial, mais certaines pistes sont bonnes ...

Exemples (traduction libre) :

 

La Conférence virtuelle - Construite sur ​​l'idée de la conférence traditionnelle, ce type de conférence nécessite un dispositif et une connexion Internet. Une conf. virtuelle peut inclure des présentateurs et des participants de partout dans le monde, ils sont souvent peu coûteux ou gratuits, et donnent accès aux idées étonnantes d'autres écoles ou éducateurs. 

Avantage supplémentaire : la plupart des sessions sont enregistrées, et peuvent être partagées avec des collègues. 

Un des meilleurs exemples d'une grande conférence virtuelle gratuite pour éducateurs est toujours la Conférence sur l' éducation mondiale , avec des présentateurs et des participants venus du monde entier, tous axés sur l' éducation dans un contexte mondial. 

 

Le Webinar – chaque jour, il y a des milliers de webinars (en ligne et en direct) de 30 à 90 minutes sur ​ des sujets très variés. Certains sont payant, d'autres sont gratuits. Il est facile de les organiser et facile d'y assister. Ils peuvent être un moyen rapide d'explorer un nouveau sujet. Ils peuvent être suivis seul ou avec un groupe de collègues enseignants dans la même pièce, en prenant le temps de débriefer et discuter ensuite.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 31, 7:49 PM

For those in Australia or places other than the UK who would like to understand more about what occurs in other places, this guide published in the UK aims to help develop a shared understanding of the teaching of computational thinking in schools. It presents a conceptual framework of computational thinking, describes pedagogic approaches for teaching and offers guides for assessment.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, February 4, 8:12 AM

Time has to be given to teachers to learn, be a part of and use this in meaningful ways.

junewall's curator insight, February 10, 6:37 PM

An overview with top level examples of what each aspect of computational thinking is about. I particularly note that while the examples are in respect to programming (mostly) all of the strategies or actions can be used in all subjects not just ICT.

Schmidt explains that repetitive drilling on the same task is called “block practice.” You do the same thing, over and over, in one block of activity. He argues that a better way to learn is to practice several new things in succession, a technique called “variable practice” or “interleaving.”

 

There’s a broad feeling that we could learn better, our kids could learn better, that it’s important,” Bjork said. “And everything we’re seeing here suggests that schools could be more effective. People could learn much more effectively than they’re learning.”

Because of ICT there are sooooo many NEW possibilities to use with the computers and the internet. Just imagine that a company owner should employ people for each special application, NO WAY! (S)He wouldn’t have enough money to afford it!!! So it is necessary that the 21st Century worker/employee would be an all-rounder! An all-rounder WHO comes straight out of school and from whom the business/workforce could profit directly!!!

Jennifer Hincapie's curator insight, May 4, 9:10 PM
This article offers a snapshot of where ed tech stands now and where it is likely to go in the next five years, according to 56 education and technology experts from 22 countries.

The overall of the topic is divided at three different moments. first, we encounter the trends in educatioon among which we can find deeper learning, rethinking learning and collaboration, it means that these  aspects have started to be included in every-day lesson, and educators have been concerned about it more often than before, but when could it be done?

On the other side, we find the challenges as Authentic Learning, Professional Development, and Personalized Learning & Teacher’s Role, so finally how are we going to conceive technlogy in our classrooms over the next five years?, Are we going to be able to overcome all of these chhallenges, and if so, which is going to be the rle of the educator in the field?, all question that need to be answered
