8 things that students (and teachers) can do to enhance learning. Good basic strategies that should be a part of everyday instruction.

Audrey's curator insight, August 27, 2014 12:01 PM

Some of the tips:

*Ask yourself lots of question

*Connect new information to something you already know

*Make information visual, eg. flowcharts, mindmaps

*Space out learning - a little at a time

*Mix up your lessons - eg cross curricular: link economics with history or psychology with with everything!

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education | News from an Instructional Technologist | Scoop.it

"As educators we must be learners first. If we are to be better educators, we must first be better learners. We may not always have a choice in what we learn. After so long not being involved with learning, many educators do not know how much they do not know. How can they make decisions on what they need to learn, if they are unaware of the existence of many of the things they need to know?" This applies to the use of technology in teaching: how can we facilitate students in using social media in learning if we don't engage with them first, in our everyday learning practice?

What happened to the newspaper and magazine business is about to happen to higher education: a rescrambling around the Web and online learning.

 

It is a good op-ed article, but in the back of my mind I kept asking "Where has this guy been for the last 5 years?" I guess now that Harvard and MIT have jumped on the open lms band wagon the open learning movement has a stamp of legitamcy.  The coming years will be interesting as online learning challenges the higher education academic status quo.

Use research-based principles of neuroscience  to organize and present materials to maximize student learning.

Sharrock's curator insight, March 18, 2014 9:10 AM

I get excited with research and the implications of research. I value evidence and application over theory and anecdotal information. Validity. The problem will always be in how the research is interpreted and translated/fitted from one setting (the lab) to the classroom (practical use). Neuroscience is relatively new. There is nothing wrong with testing these ideas for use in the classroom though. However, the "Usable classroom translations" are sometimes close in "proximity" to what we educators already believe (indicating perhaps a confirmation bias), or the translations are huge leaps from the research takeaway (the conclusion?). For example, the author references this: "Brain Target 4: Teaching for Mastery
Neuroscience behind it: In order for information to be retained it must make its way from short-term to long-term memory.
Usable classroom translation: Use the arts as a tool to enhance and reinforce learning goals (Rinne, Gregory, Yarmolinskaya, and Hardiman, 2011)".  This doesn't fit with my understanding of evidence. I need a few more connections between the "dots" of research conclusion with the implicated classroom practice.

The LMS was once the undisputed center of the digital learning ecosystem. But on many campuses, the situation has changed such that the campus online learning environment might be better viewed as a continuum, with the LMS at one end and a student’s own collection of applications, tools, and websites at the other.
