Educators often talk about 21st-century skills and the benefits of incorporating communication, creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and critical thinking into lessons. These are skills students rarely learn straight out of a textbook. The best way to teach them, we’ve found, is by making these skills a relevant part of their active lives.

If that sounds daunting, rest assured, it doesn’t always have to be. One way we have taught these skills is through project-based learning (PBL), where students apply what they’ve learned during a hands-on project that is relevant to the real world — and their lives.

To that end, a new report developed by MIDA Learning Technologies, which we researchers worked on, shows that students engaged in PBL understand concepts more deeply than those receiving traditional instruction, resulting in improved problem solving skills. Past research reviewed in the report also suggests that PBL students perform better on a wide range of assessments including standardized testing. The full report includes quantitative and qualitative evaluations of students’ problem-solving abilities after implementation of a pre-built, project-based STEM curriculum in science class.

Project-based learning (PBL) is essential to developing necessary skills in student's education. I can remember multiple instances throughout my time in school where I've understood the concept better simply because I was applying the ideas.

15 Great Audiobooks for Helping Kids Read Better ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Great Audiobooks for Helping Kids Read Better ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education - Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The puzzling question that is often posed when talking about audiobooks' integration in the teaching and learning of literacy is whether they have the same cognitive benefits as the actual reading. In other words , can listening to audiobooks be considered reading?

 

Well, the answer does require a rigorous scientific study; however, what is certain here is that listening to audiobooks and reading both require serious engagement with the content for deep and critical understanding to take place.

There are actually several myths around audiobooks such as that they are a form of cheating or that they are for those with reading disabilities or those who don't like to read.

 

But these are unverifiable myths and do not stand to the evidence of reason. In fact, such a discussion on the uncertainties related to audiobooks does a big disservice to their actual merit.

 

As a learning tool, audiobooks have a number of important educational benefits to students and can be used in a variety of ways. Reading Rockets lists 10 interesting things you can do with audiobooks in class:

Introduce students to books above their reading levelModel good interpretive readingTeach critical listeningHighlight the humor in booksIntroduce new genres that students might not otherwise considerIntroduce new vocabulary or difficult proper names or localesSidestep unfamiliar dialects or accents, Old English, and old-fashioned literary stylesProvide a read-aloud modelProvide a bridge to important topics of discussion for parents and children who can listen together while commuting to sporting events, music lessons, or on vacationsRecapture "the essence and the delights of hearing stories beautifully told by extraordinarily talented storytellers" (Baskin & Harris, 1995, p. 376)

Could an audio actually help children to improve their reading skills?

When I first saw the tittle of this article, it came to my mind my early school years when the teachers or my parents punished me because my reading skills were really bad, even nowadays, I don't enjoy that much the reading, it's easier for me if I listen the information, rather than reading it.

This happens nowadays to a lot of children and a good strategie to improve their reading skills is playing an audio-book while they read the book itslef, thus they don't have to encode every single word, their pronunciation could improve, and they learn to read very fast as well.

Another reason for which teachers and parents should take into account this strategy, is that it can actually help acquiring new languages, since if you play an audio in any language to a child in an early age, the children could learn it just as he/she learns the mother tongue.

I consider that this is a very good strategie to help children with low reading skills and I plan to implment it in my future classes.

"I'd Love to Hear Your Story"In this article, Wendy Kelly has shared with us :

"Using data in storytelling adds that much more to your narrative. It takes time to integrate in, but the result is a story that is more refined and at the same time more grounded in reality. Based on facts and hard data, you can be sure that you're writing a non-fiction marketing story to engage your hero and make him into that ideal lifelong client/guest you've always hoped he would be."

3.5 billion years ago, meteorites provided reactive phosphorus essential for creating the earliest life on Earth

3.5 billion years ago, meteorites provided reactive phosphorus essential for creating the earliest life on Earth | Education - Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Most astrobiologists believe that life in some form is likely to exist away from Earth. But new research demonstrates that life as we know it on Earth might never have come to exist at all if not for a key element delivered to the planet by meteorites billions of years ago.

 

Scientists at the University of Washington and the University of South Florida found that during the Hadean and Archean eons – the first two of the four principal eons of the Earth’s earliest history – the heavy bombardment by meteorites provided reactive phosphorus essential for creating the earliest life on Earth.

 

When released in water, that reactive phosphorus could be incorporated into prebiotic molecules, and the researchers documented its presence in early Archean limestone, showing it was abundant some 3.5 billion years ago.

 

“The importance of this finding is that it provides the missing ingredient in the origin-of-life recipe: a form of phosphorus that can be readily incorporated into essential biological molecules like nucleic acids and cell-membrane lipids,” said Roger Buick, a UW professor of Earth and space sciences.

 

The scientists concluded that the meteorites delivered phosphorus in minerals that are not now seen on the surface of the Earth, and these minerals corroded in water to release phosphite, a form of phosphorus seen only on the early Earth.

 

“Meteorite phosphorus may have been a fuel that provided the energy and phosphorus necessary for the onset of life,” said Pasek. “If this meteoritic phosphorus is added to simple organic compounds, it can generate phosphorus biomolecules identical to those seen in life today.”

 

He said the research provides a plausible answer for why we don’t see new life forms on Earth today: The conditions under which life arose billions of years ago are no longer present.

 

“The present research shows that this is indeed the case: Phosphorus chemistry on the early Earth was substantially different billions of years ago than it is today,” he said.

 

The findings are based on examination of samples from Australia, Zimbabwe, West Virginia, Wyoming and Florida. The presence of phosphite was detected only in the oldest samples, from surface materials and drill cores from the early Archean in Australia.
