The Neuroscience Of Learning: 41 Terms Every Teacher Should Know

The Neuroscience Of Learning: 41 Terms Every Teacher Should Know | Education and Training | Scoop.it
As education continues to evolve, adding in new trends, technologies, standards, and 21st century thinking habits, there is one constant that doesn’t change.

The human brain.

But neuroscience isn’t exactly accessible to most educators, rarely published, and when it is, it’s often full of odd phrasing and intimidating jargon. Worse, there seems to be a disconnect between the dry science of neurology, and the need teachers have for relevant tools, resources, and strategies in the classroom.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 1, 3:39 PM
The article presents and reviews three books for teachers.

The New Authority by Omer Haim examines a democratic way of teaching. Having just read bell hooks's Teaching to Transgress I find this a worthy and challenging way of teaching. The challenge is schools remain hierarchical institutions where teachers are treated in shabby ways.

Thinking in Education by Matthew Lipman is about critical thinking. Lipman draws on John Dewey, whereas bell hooks, drawing on Paulo Freire, argues for critical thinking in her critical pedagogy. I think of Dewey as a crticial theorist before his time.

Freedom to Learn by Carl Rogers underscores the essential nature of meaningfulness in teaching and learning. Again, this connects to John Dewey. What makes something meaningful is how we experience it in life.

10 Essential Skills for the Education Leader of Tomorrow | Education and Training | Scoop.it

"What will the schools of tomorrow be like? No one can say for certain. But one thing we do know: schools are under pressure to keep up with the ceaselessly rapidfire changes occurring in our culture. It is difficult to prepare students for the future when we have no way of knowing exactly what that future will be like. In this context, educational leaders need a unique skill set to make sure that students get what they need."

Characteristics of Effective Learning Feedback

Characteristics of Effective Learning Feedback | Education and Training | Scoop.it
“ Students work on the feedback provided to them to bring the best out in their performance. However, there can be a possibility that students are getting the right feedback which hinders their growth. Without having the correct feedback it is impossible for students to work on their weak areas. As educators, the feedback provided needs to be of sort that can direct students towards better results.”

The objective is that good teachers create an environment where each student's learning can emerge. I don't think that means they don't teach. Gert Biesta uses John Dewey in his writing argues that teaching is relational. Having a strong grasp of content, being able to deliver it, caring for one's students, etc. each go into creating the environment where learning can emerge.

Improving teacher's efficiency 
Margaret Annen's curator insight, October 22, 5:03 PM
"Great Teachers Don't Teach" really sums it up with the idea that real teaching doesn't take place until the student does on their own.  This article relates to my project because I believe one way teachers can learn how to let go is for them to be in the same situation as they need to let their students be and that is be left to do.  The only issue perhaps is educators may go through and experience doing, but giving up the control is hard because day in and day out you have been doing the doing. I believe learning how to let go must be accomplished by learning how to let go.  Educators must plan a lesson and say include one or two steps of letting go.  Then they must build on it, so that day after day they themselves feel comfortable with letting go.  Managing a classroom of students who must do specific things on their own looks and feels different because the students are engaged to the point that they do not want to be interrupted rather they are feverishly and committed to learning.

Build Learning Communities for a Stronger Workforce

Build Learning Communities for a Stronger Workforce | Education and Training | Scoop.it

A good business needs to maximize the use of every tool in its arsenal. However, one major tool often goes underappreciated: the creation and reinforcement of learning communities. Learning communities are one of the most powerful driving forces for change and improvement within a company, and their successful implementation can result in a stronger workforce.

When constructed correctly, learning communities build an environment for everyone to join in a cycle of reflection, problem-solving and application to meet goals and objectives.

There is no average student and one-size-does-not-fit-all. Jaggedness (Alan Watts' wiggly world concept), complexity (even chaos), context, different paths, and breaking from the idea of average are essential to be a teacher and move away from conformity and compliance.

Three Ideas for Implementing Learner Reflection

Three Ideas for Implementing Learner Reflection | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Educators have long recognized the importance and applicability of critical reflection across a wide range of educational settings, yet in practice it remains a challenging and nebulous concept for many to firmly grasp. In education, the concept of reflection dates back to the work of John Dewey (1933), who defined it as “active, persistent and careful consideration of any belief or supposed form of knowledge in the light of the grounds that support it and the further conclusion to which it tends” (p. 9). Dewey was the first to point out that experience alone does not constitute learning; instead, a conscious realization must occur for the experience to become a source of learning.

In examining the depth of reflection, Rogers (2001) made an influential and careful study and synthesis, while Peltier, Hay, and Drago (2005) put forward a way to evaluate different levels of reflective thinking, which include habitual actions, understanding, reflection, and critical reflection (refer to Weimer, 2012). Yet the void of ecologically valid classroom-based research on incorporating reflection to improve student learning has left teachers largely on their own when it comes to creating opportunities for reflection in their courses.

The 6 Drivers of Inquiry-Based Learning - Cooper on Curriculum

The 6 Drivers of Inquiry-Based Learning - Cooper on Curriculum | Education and Training | Scoop.it
As an administrator, whenever I walk into a teacher’s classroom, one of the first things I almost always subconsciously look for is whether or not the students are engaged in inquiry. However, telling a teacher, “Your students need to engage in more inquiry,” is comparable to letting a comedian know she needs to be funnier or asking a pizzaiolo to make a better dough. And, vague directives in the absence of explicit instruction typically generate anxiety.

To avoid these anxieties, and for progress to actually take place, we need to drill down to the nitty gritty and be as explicit as possible. In other words, we need to be explicit about being explicit and leverage specific strategies to comfortably move forward for the benefit of our students.

With these thoughts in mind, I’ve been obsessing over inquiry’s common denominators – the strategies or drivers we should always consider when implementing an inquiry-based lesson.

That being said, here are the six drivers of inquiry-based learning. And, while I don’t think every lesson or activity must have all six, I do believe that once we (and our students) become comfortable with an inquiry approach, all drivers will naturally find a way into learning experiences on a regular, if not daily, basis.

Engaging students can be a challenge, when you desire to keep the whole class interested in the subject, and a few disengaged minds seem to push the other way. It seems like a cakewalk to others, but teaching can turn out to be one of the most stressful jobs in the world. Obviously when addressing a class full of kids you’ll come across a variety of them, right from the most sincere and easy-to-manage kids to the most disinterested ones.

I have not been able to master that. I find richful to try out the suggestions provided in this article. I should take into account the students' interests towards learning English. And, of course, a really important point I considered from this article, to give students chances to achieve goals on their own and maintain them motivated through rewards and/or praises.
