Frequent, Low-Stakes Grading: Assessment for Communication, Confidence | Faculty Focus

Frequent, Low-Stakes Grading: Assessment for Communication, Confidence | Faculty Focus | Learn to learn | Scoop.it

It may surprise us to think of it like this, but today’s students grew up in a culture of routine assessment and feedback. Yet when they click (or walk) into our courses, the experience is often quite different: there are few high-stakes grades, big exams, or one-shot term papers. Despite critiques of high-stakes testing – Wideen et al. (1997) said such “examinations discouraged teachers from using strategies which promoted enquiry and active student learning […] this impoverishment affected the language of classroom discourse”—teachers often still see “assessment as an index of school success rather than as the cause of that success” (Chappuis and Stiggins, 2002).

The Science of Practice: What Happens When You Learn a New Skill | Learn to learn | Scoop.it
You've heard the expression “practice makes perfect” a million times, and you've probably read Malcolm Gladwell's popular “10,000 hours” theory. But how does practice actually affect the brain?

Video - Beware of 'Neuromyths' Like Those on Brain Usage and Improving 'Learning Styles' - WSJ.com | Learn to learn | Scoop.it
No, you do not, in fact, use just 10% of your brain, and learning styles make no difference in the classroom. Psychology professor Christopher Chabris discusses these and other neuromyths with WSJ's Gary Rosen.
ifli's insight:

I have read often in the psychology literature about problems with learning styles theory. It comes from the field of education rather than psychology.

To Lock In New Vocabulary Words, Kids Need To Sleep « Annie Murphy Paul

A good night’s sleep helps children develop their vocabularies, reports Amber Moore on the Medical Daily website. We know from studies of adults that knowledge and skills acquired while awake must be “consolidated” during the period of sleep that follows.

Why Study the Learning Process If the Data Isn't Used?

Why Study the Learning Process If the Data Isn't Used? | Learn to learn | Scoop.it

One would think the world of education -- including educators, decision makers and government education policy generators -- would base decisions on grounded research. After all, these are folks who have managed to make their way to a higher order of thinking and graduated with a degree from our educational institutions. Why then is there such a gap between what we know (through research) and what we do (practice/make decisions)?

In The Brilliant Report: Studies On Executive Function And Exercise « Annie Murphy Paul

In this week’s issue of The Brilliant Report, I write about how aerobic exercise is one of the few ways science has identified to improve our “executive function”—the set of higher-order mental skills that allow us to plan and organize, make considered decisions, manage our time and focus our attention. Below are links to abstracts of the studies I cite in the article.

From The Brilliant Report: A Surprising Way To Improve Executive Function « Annie Murphy Paul | Learn to learn | Scoop.it

Chances are you’ve recently heard or read about the importance of “executive function”—the set of higher-order mental skills that allow us to plan and organize, make considered decisions, manage our time and focus our attention. (The famous “marshmallow experiment” was all about executive function.) No matter how smart or talented we—or our kids or our employees—are, not much will get done well without these key capacities.

The myth of learning styles

The myth of learning styles | Learn to learn | Scoop.it

Before becoming a writer, I spent a year-and-a-half training as a science teacher and then working at a secondary school in Croydon. During my short stint in education, the biggest buzzword was “differentiation.” We were told that any given class contains pupils with a range of abilities, and that different children have different learning styles.
