Why Teaching Mindfulness Benefits Students’ Learning

Why Teaching Mindfulness Benefits Students’ Learning | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Mindfulness has the potential to be a very useful component because of its effectiveness in reducing emotional distress and promoting emotional balance.

The circuits that are involved in the regulation of emotion are highly interactive with those that are associated with “executive functions” (such as planning, judgment, and decision making), which are intimately involved in the development of problem-solving skills during the preschool years. In terms of basic brain functioning, emotions support executive functions when they are well regulated, but interfere with attention and decision making when they are poorly controlled.

Il n'y a pas qu'une seule "bonne" décision face à un enjeu donné.  La décision à prendre dépend de nos valeurs et est plus émotionnelle qu'intellectuelle.  Quand le temps presse, on doit décider!  Une mauvaise décision est préférable à l'indécision...

There is not "right" decision to an issue.  It depends on our values and it is more an emotional process than an intellectual one.  when time matter, a bad decision is better than no decision at all...

Gearing up for their district’s password-reset day in October, teachers and school administrators in Raytown, Missouri, watched a spoof video “gym” tour by their tech-support staff, who offered tips for stronger passwords amidst “laptop lunges” and “cross-tech” training. Every few months in Raytown, there’s a new silly video with the serious purpose of safeguarding student …

How virtual reality technology is changing the way students learn

How virtual reality technology is changing the way students learn | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
For many years, schools and universities have had to change the way they work and teach in order to fit in with technology.

Software like PowerPoint, for example, which has long been used as an education tool, wasn’t designed for education. Nonetheless, it has been a staple tool in education settings, used as a way to present information in template, bite-size formats.

But this isn’t always a good thing.

The use of digital technologies sees some teachers and students presenting information using templates, which means much of the individual character of teachers’ practices can be lost.

Research shows that software such as PowerPoint can homogenise and sanitise the way teachers present information to their students.

Only more recently are we seeing technology being designed and utilised specifically for education contexts, and it’s changing the way students learn and understand things.

Robotics and Computer Science for Elementary Level Learners @JackieGerstein

Robotics and Computer Science for Elementary Level Learners @JackieGerstein | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
I absolutely love all of the new robotics toys that have been coming out for elementary age learners.  I have been using them for my summer maker camp, with my gifted education classes, and for my upcoming Saturday morning program. One of my gifted girls noted, “Where do all of these robots come from?” I laughed and told her, “It’s actually has become one of my passions. Collecting them has become a major hobby of mine.”

I usually use them for an hour per week with my two groups of gifted learners.  I am an advocate of student-centric learning and giving them choices as to which instructional activities they would like to engage. For their robotics hour each week, I am giving them the following choices with their goal of using five of the robotics to complete five of the tasks provided.

Age of Distraction: Why It’s Crucial for Students to Learn to Focus

Age of Distraction: Why It’s Crucial for Students to Learn to Focus | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Learning to focus on one task while tuning out the many distractions vying for attention is a crucial life skill that some students are missing.

“The circuitry for paying attention is identical for the circuits for managing distressing emotion,” Goleman said. The area of the brain that governs focus and executive functioning is known as the pre-frontal cortex. This is also the part of the brain that allows people to control themselves, to keep emotions in check and to feel empathy for other people.

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Simulation-based learning allows us to play in a highly immersive environment that reflects aspects of the real world. In virtual simulations, we can explore and create with much lower stakes than we would encounter in the real world. Questions of “What if?” flourish in a virtual simulation as we create and experience new possibilities with increasing realism. With smartphones making access to virtual reality easier and easier, virtual simulations can now become part of place-based learning in the classroom.
