Sweden’s Newest School System Has No Classrooms | Edudemic

Sweden’s Newest School System Has No Classrooms | Edudemic | Education | Scoop.it

There’s a whole new classroom model and it’s a sight to behold. The newest school system in Sweden look more like the hallways of Google or Pixar and less like a brick-and-mortar school you’d typically see.

 

There are collaboration zones, houses-within-houses, and a slew of other features that are designed to foster “curiosity and creativity.” That’s according to Vittra, which runs 30 schools in Sweden. Their most recent school, Telefonplan School (see photos below) in Stockholm, could very well be the school of the future.

 

Architect Rosan Bosch designed the school to encourage both independent and collaborative work such as group projects and PBL. Even the furniture is meant to get students learning. Bosch says each piece is meant to “aid students in engaging” while working.

Motivation, Not IQ, Matters Most for Learning New Math Skills | TIME.com

Motivation, Not IQ, Matters Most for Learning New Math Skills | TIME.com | Education | Scoop.it

"You don’t have to be born with math skills; solving problems is a matter of studying and motivation.

That may not seem like such a surprise, but it’s become easy to say ‘I just can’t do math.’ While some element of math achievement may be linked to natural inborn intelligence, when it comes to developing skills during high school, motivation and math study habits are much more important than IQ, according to a new study.

“It’s not how smart we are; it’s how motivated we are and how effectively we study that determines growth in math achievement over time,” says Kou Murayama..."

This study was done in Germany and looked at students from Grade 5 through Grade 10, and showed that motivation plays a large role in learning new math skills. An important finding was "the findings provide reassuring confirmation that academic success is not governed by a student’s cognitive abilities alone. Instead, students who want to learn math and who work at it may find they make faster gains and learn better than students who are bright but less motivated."

Kaley Hannon's curator insight, September 16, 2013 2:12 AM

A study done in Germany argues that it's not the children who have the high IQ's that are growing most in their math skills but it is the ones who are most motivated. Through the research conducted they collected evidence  that shows that the even though the kids with the higher IQ's started at a higher level when it came to understanding math the children who reported that they were motivated to learn math were the ones who picked up the math skills faster. 

Terri Goldson's curator insight, February 1, 2014 3:21 PM

Unfortunately the intelligence quotient has always been the standard measure used within education and beyond, that is said to determine our ability to learn. We know through common observation, that premise is not always an indicator of success. Other very important factors play a role in everyone’s ability to navigate through life.  Factors such as motivation, determination, perseverance and other intangibles are important influences. Tapping into those essential elements will make learning more meaningful for all learners.  Knowledge IS Power!

10 Strategies To Help Online Learners Complete An Online Program

10 Strategies To Help Online Learners Complete An Online Program | Education | Scoop.it

"'Successful' online learners are those students who complete their online course. 'Unsuccessful' online learners either drop out of the online course or fail its requirements. As we all know, online learning suffers from much higher drop-out rates than face-to-face learning. And since most attrition occurs at the beginning of a program/course, it is important to frontload this preparation and interventions at the beginning of the course. This article offers 10 strategies online programs can undertake to increase learner retention."

Not just 4 texting: 1 in 3 middle-schoolers uses smart phones for homework | CSMonitor.com | Education | Scoop.it

Move over, Angry Birds. It’s time to tackle a math problem.

 

A new survey finds that about a third of middle-schoolers now use smart phones or tablets not just for entertainment and communication, but also for homework.

 

Paired with young people’s interest in science, math, and technology, it’s another sign of the potential for digital learning that educators are slowly beginning to tap.

 

“Most people talk about STEM subjects and technology at the high school level, [but] the critical intervention really should be happening in the middle school, because that’s the age when kids either can get excited about science and technology and math … or they can get turned off,” says Rose Stuckey Kirk, president of the Verizon Foundation, which commissioned the new survey.

 

The national survey of 1,000 students in Grades 6 through 8 found that:
