Nik Peachey - creativity in the language classroom | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Creativity or rather the lack of it is becoming and increasingly important issue within a global context of increased emphasis on standardisation and testing within educational systems. In this webinar Nik looks at a new British Council publication that seeks to redress the balance and help teachers to interject an element of creativity into the English language classroom.
Nik examines the background to the emergence of the book and explores the re-emerging importance of creativity in the educational milieu.

What does intelligence look like?

What does intelligence look like? | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it
For much of its history schooling has been obsessed with one type of intelligence as evidenced by what is given time within the learning day and that which is the focus of assessment. Indeed, pedagogy, curriculum and assessment within schools has delivered a clear and consistent message about what constitutes intelligence. Knowledge, defined as the recall of information, literacy, defined as the ability to read and write and numeracy, defined as the ability to calculate, have formed the pillars of educational systems and have both framed and been framed by our view of intelligence.

The Future of Learning - PDF Version : The Paradigm Shift - MarkTreadwell.com

The Future of Learning - PDF Version : The Paradigm Shift - MarkTreadwell.com | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"This 200pp resource provides a window into the future of learning that is now urgently required in all schools - NOW! We need to prepare our young people for this century; a century where our learners are increasingly using YouTube to learn about what they need to learn, Just in Time; an era where our personal, social and work places are all experiencing enormous rates of change. How do we prepare learners a world that is increasingly complex; and one that is now demanding high levels of personal competency. 

"This journey begins with an emerging model for how our brain learns. Understanding this background provides us with the capacity to defining what the Learning process looks like (formally referred to as the inquiry process).  

"The human brain is extraordinary, but even more extraordinary is how little we have understood its capacity to learn. As humans, we alone have all four +(1) learning systems, allowing us to take our overwhelmingly rich sensory data to create knowledge and leverage that to build ideas and concepts and then apply those innovatively and ingeniously.

"The Learning Process harnesses this potential, allowing intelligence to be far more equitable than we ever imagined – "all learners are intelligent, and it is time everyone has the opportunity to fulfil the inherent potential that lays within."

"The physical copy of 'The Future of Learning' is accompanied with access to the electronic PDF version. The electronic version is updated every four months to ensure we are keeping you up to date with the very latest information on learning and how we can make that both relevant and equitable."

Is there a "Standard English" - yes or no?

Is there a "Standard English" - yes or no? | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it
Throughout the years, one thing above all continually astounds me about my fellow English Language teachers, researchers, writers, administrators and even students. What is it? Well, it is how conservative they are about language and how they fervently believe and attach themselves to a "standard" English that should be taught. I'm not so sure that there is a correct way to say anything. Is the "Queen's English" really what we want students to learn? Doesn't language always change and if we accept that, how can we ever teach a standard, given the differences through time,

valeneg98's curator insight, May 20, 5:55 PM
Are you one who believes we should teach a "standard" form of English or, do you believe we should guide our teaching by how it is actually used. 

All languages are in continous change as society also changes, but the belief that there are standards of a language, in this case English that need to be taught still continue. So, what is the correct English we need to teach our students?

Additionally, Gladwell failed to adequately distinguish between the quantity of hours spent practicing, and the quality of that practice. This misses a huge portion of Ericsson’s findings, and is the reason why Tim Ferriss scoffs at Gladwell’s 10,000 hour rule in this video.

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School?

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School? | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

The only rational answer to the conundrum of curiosity is to disengage our educational system from standardized testing and common curricula. Curiosity does not hold up well under intense expectation. Give agency to teachers, with the explicit message to slow down and provide students time to wonder and be curious.

Nine Things Educators Need to Know About the Brain

Our brains require stimulation and connection to survive and thrive. A brain without connection to other brains and without sufficient challenge will shrink and eventually die—moreover, the modern human brain’s primary environment is our matrix of social relationships.

Physical activity exerts a stimulating influence on the entire brain that keeps it functioning at an optimal level. Exercise has been shown to stimulate the birth of new neurons in the hippocampus and to pump more oxygen through the brain, stimulating capillary growth and frontal-lobe plasticity.

As an online learner I can relate and always push to make learning meaningful and relevant, but also worry that DEEP learning isn't always as obvious to learners and there needs to be the patience and trust that it will build to more meaningful application.
