Only 15 percent had more than a single page devoted to evidence-based practices; the remainder contained either zero or only a few sentences on methods that have been backed up by the decades of scientific findings that exist in the field of educational psychology.

For both teacher ore-service and inservice training, this is important, and needs to be paid more attention to.  We need more on methods, practical methods - but those that are based in solid research and are based on real evidence.

Sharon Berman's curator insight, February 14, 12:49 AM

Even though the article is long, and does seem to repeat what it is saying, this is an interesting read.  Why are our teachers not being taught so that they can support the needs of our children in the 21st century.  We need to come up with more engaging ways of exciting our children about learning, and about their futures, so that they see tertiary education as more than just a ticket......

Alexandra Koukoumialou's curator insight, February 15, 7:46 AM

Research finds that teacher training has to be based on hands-on experience! Theorising is not enough!!!

Julie Cumming-Debrot's curator insight, February 15, 12:12 PM

There is indeed much room for improvement.  Already putting the student at the centre would be a good start.

12 Unexpected Ways to Use LEGO in the Classroom | Edudemic

12 Unexpected Ways to Use LEGO in the Classroom | Edudemic | UDL, mobile learning, and assistive technology | Scoop.it
The idea that students can learn something valuable from play isn’t new, or even controversial. A sizeable body of research has been conducted to back up what many teachers already knew to be true.  Fun and learning don’t have to be mutually exclusive, and it really works better for everyone involved when they’re not.

As such, making LEGO Bricks part of your lesson plan can help you teach concepts that students might otherwise find tedious, in a way that doesn’t feel like work to them. Many educators have already been putting this idea to the test with success. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
