Scientific American: 60-Second Science | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Science in a minute? Sure, why not! Scientific American is offering up these bite-sized offerings that give a brief intro to a range of science-related topics and investigations. New, minute-long offerings are added every weekday, and recent additions have included "Fly Cells Divide by the Clock," "Twitter Reveals Language Geographic Distribution," and "Bed Bugs Bollixed by Bean." Visitors can sign up to learn about new additions via their RSS feed or iTunes. These short audio blurbs could easily be used in any number of classrooms to keep students engaged. It's a great resource and one that can be used with a range of learners.

Testing students during video lectures improves learning

Testing students during video lectures improves learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Karl Szpunar, a cognitive psychologist at Harvard University, might have a rather simple solution to rein in distractions, one that focuses attention in real-world classrooms: intersperse pop quizzes into the online lectures. Szpunar got this idea from a 2008 study he conducted. In it, students learned five lists of words; half the students were tested after each list and the other half were tested only after the fifth list. Both groups were then tested on the cumulative list of words. Those tested after every list, not surprisingly, performed better on the cumulative test. But the results also suggested that being continually quizzed helped focus the students on the task at hand. Both groups had the same gap between seeing the fifth set of words and being tested on them, yet the group that was tested along the way performed twice as well on this set. Regular quizzes limit mind-wandering, increase note-taking, and cut exam anxiety.

worth reading

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, April 26, 2013 7:29 PM

This is a very interesting PDF article on Interactive Technologies in language teaching, focusing on the Interactive White Board (IWB) including what it is, IWB based materials, and how to use it in the foreign language classroom. Definitely worth a read, although it is definitely targeted at a very specific audience as not every classroom has an IWB.

Adaptability to Online Learning: Differences Across Types of Students and Academic Subject Areas

Using a dataset containing nearly 500,000 courses taken by over 40,000 community and technical college students in Washington State, this study examines how well students adapt to the online environment in terms of their ability to persist and earn strong grades in online courses relative to their ability to do so in face-to-face courses. While all types of students in the study suffered decrements in performance in online courses, some struggled more than others to adapt: males, younger students, Black students, and students with lower grade point averages. In particular, students struggled in subject areas such as English and social science, which was due in part to negative peer effects in these online courses.
