The Risk of Prioritizing Compliance Over Creation @KatieMTLC

Let’s learn about Learning | #ModernEDU #LEARNing2LEARN

Let’s learn about Learning | #ModernEDU #LEARNing2LEARN | TCDSB21C | Scoop.it

I often say, “Learning is complicated. If it weren’t, there’d be an app for it.” So for the moment, learning how to learn is one of the most valuable endeavors we can give to this generation of continuous learners.

 

Self-awareness of how people learn as individuals and in teams becomes the springboard for change and innovative growth. To make learning meaningful, understandable, and motivating requires continued exploration in some basic learning principles: engagement, connection, interaction, attention, memory, intervention, and reflection.

Our ability to continuously learn and adapt determines the extent to which we thrive in today's organizations, in our personal lives, and in these disruptive times. By examining strategies for learning at the pace of change, based on learning analytics data of LyndaCampus users, as well as exploring the recent research, data, and practices in neuroscience and the cognitive sciences, we are able to see behaviors and actions that make learning easier and better.

The marriage of studies in the areas of learning, neuroscience, and cognitive science is moving what educators knew anecdotally to a data-driven understanding of how people learn—and how people can learn better. In an age of access to all knowledge, exploring learning principles or what I term learning strategies is the great gift educators can give students and colleagues.

Problem solving @SmartBrief

When it’s a bright, sunny day outside, should I wear a black or a white t-shirt to stay cool?  What an easy question, right? I was reformulating my engineering lesson on space suits to share at the ISTE conference this year when this question surfaced. After all, astronauts have the same dilemma, right?
