Teaching Your Students How to Have a Conversation

Teaching Your Students How to Have a Conversation | Education | Scoop.it

While it is impossible to know all of the reasons, there is no doubt that learning to listen and talk is an extremely important way to broaden knowledge, enhance understanding and build community. Perhaps this is why the core standards in English-language arts include an important emphasis on developing speaking and listening, the basic tools for conversation. This eight tips can be used regularly to help students learn good conversational skills.

Audrey's curator insight, November 18, 2013 4:32 PM

The tips are: Imitate good conversations; encourage non-verbal behaviour as it shows interest; challenge hurtful comments; ask open-ended questions; Do not accept , 'I dont'know'. Ask, 'What do you think?; Ask students informal questions, e.g. about their other classes; make eye contact.  This shows you are listening; encourage turn-taking.

Truly illuminating! Slam Poet Wants To Change The Way You Think About ESL Education | Education | Scoop.it

If you want to gain an opinion of ELL education that is truly illuminating, look no further than Dylan Garity’s poem, “Rigged Game.” A slam poet for Button Poetry, Garity performed the poem last month at the 2013 National Poetry Slam competition in Boston. In it, he describes a negative cycle of standardized testing and speaks to a system that fails ELL students and constrains teachers.

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’ | Education | Scoop.it
The famed psychologist explains why one is not the other though they are often confused.

 

1.       Individualize your teaching as much as possible. Instead of “one size fits all,” learn as much as you can about each student, and teach each person in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively. Of course this is easier to accomplish with smaller classes. But ‘apps’ make it possible to individualize for everyone.

Howard Gardner asks teachers to Drop the term “styles.” It will confuse others and it won’t help either you or your students.

Shafali Anand's comment, October 25, 2013 6:09 AM
Of course they aren't. They are the raw material that come together and result in learning styles. I've got to read this :)
Shafali Anand's comment, October 25, 2013 6:18 AM
Read it. I've always found Gardner's MI theory interesting - because it's a great equalizer - when I was growing up logical-mathematical intelligence (in Gardner's terminology) was given the highest importance - art, music, sports etc. were considered talents/gifts - and not intelligences. Gardner made them more respectable by calling them intelligences. This is why I too can call myself intelligent today - visually and spatially intelligent. Ahem!

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses | Education | Scoop.it
Students in Matamoros, Mexico weren't getting much out of school -- until a radical new teaching method unlocked their potential.

 

Mitra’s work has roots in educational practices dating back to Socrates. Theorists from Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi to Jean Piaget and Maria Montessori have argued that students should learn by playing and following their curiosity.


Einstein spent a year at a Pestalozzi-inspired school in the mid-1890s, and he later credited it with giving him the freedom to begin his first thought experiments on the theory of relativity.


Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin similarly claim that their Montessori schooling imbued them with a spirit of independence and creativity.

Steph's Journalism Group 2013's curator insight, October 15, 2013 10:46 AM
Daniella Broomberg's insight:

I really enjoyed this article. Finally a postivive slant on education that provides teachers with a way of improving and changing the way they interact with students. I wholeheartedly agree with the notion that as the world changes and expects different qualities and skills from students, so too must the education system reform. 

Karla Luetzow's curator insight, October 16, 2013 11:22 AM

 

The main focus of this article is discovering the most effective way to learn. In Mexico, a school José Urbina López Primary School 

 changed their curriculum and allowed children the freedom to explore and learn on their own. The new curriculum was modeled after Sugata Mitra’s “school in the cloud.” In today’s age of constant information, “school in the cloud” challenged if a computer can teach students as well as a teacher.

 

I found this article incredibly intriguing. The model of education has been the same since the 1800’s. A teacher instructs a classroom of pupils with routine tests to analyze  each student's progress. I have heard of online high schools and college classes, but the idea that seven year olds can learn on their own astonishes me. I never even thought of changing the standard teacher-student classroom in elementary school.  Replacing a teacher with a computer is an extraordinary idea for the future. It is very difficult to imagine. However, our society is changing with this new technology. Therefore, it makes sense to me that our education system should change along with it.

 

Most people would agree that it is easier to learn material that one finds interesting. The type of learning in this article plays into this strength. I wonder if this type of learning would work in an area with distractions such as television, video games, and cell phones. I would be interested to see if the outcome would show the same positive results. I do not think it would. 

 

 This article ties in with the TedTalk by Sugata Mitra. To further learn about this type of learning, I suggest watching the video
