how emotions help you learn

how emotions help you learn | Transformational Teaching, Thinking, and Technology | Scoop.it

Human tutors—teachers who work closely with students, one on one—are unrivaled in their ability to promote deep and lasting learning. Education researchers have known this for more than 30 years, but until recently they haven’t paid much attention to one important reason why tutoring is so effective: the management of emotion. Studies show that tutors spend about half their time dealing with pupils’ feelings about what and how they’re learning.

Now the designers of computerized tutoring systems are beginning to make sensing and responding to emotions a key part of the process, and they’re finding that users learn more as a result. At the same time, researchers are using the data generated by these programs to make new discoveries about emotion and its central role in learning.

Chris Carter's insight:

MOOCs are beginning to figure out why they are failing, and how to solve the issue. All good teaching is relational.

A 3D Printed Microscope for Your iPhone for Pennies - The Mac Observer

A 3D Printed Microscope for Your iPhone for Pennies - The Mac Observer | Transformational Teaching, Thinking, and Technology | Scoop.it
Scientists at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington have developed a 3D printed microscope housing for various mobile devices that costs pennies. Combined with an easily available glass bead, the device can offer up to 1,000x magnification. The result is a cheap, digital microscope that can be used in the field to photograph and transmit images of biological samples and get results in minutes. If contaminated, the device is so cheap, it can be thrown away and a new one substituted.

Chris Carter's insight:

Being able to answer the "Why?" question for students is essential. Though it sometimes takes imagination on the part of the students, we can honestly say that they are learning how to think and create so that cancer may be cured, the poor may be raised out of abject poverty, and the  hungry fed. We engage in student-centered learning and teaching so that the world may be made better through them.
