Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today

Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today | Technicaltraining | Scoop.it

It’s all about engagement. I’ve heard things like a child’s attention span, in minutes, is equal to their age in years. That’s so not true. If children are engaged in something, they’ll spend hours on it. We have a 6-year-old grandchild who will spend hours working on Legos or Tinkertoys because she’s got something in her mind that she wants to build, and she’ll do it. If children aren’t paying attention, it’s not because of a decreased attention span—it’s because they aren’t given tasks that honor their dominant ways of learning.

"As tightening budgets paired with ubiquitous technologies push the world’s higher education institutions towards online learning, one group of US researchers has uncovered evidence the transition may not come without an educational cost. David Figlio, Mark Rush and Lu Yin from the University of Chicago have published the results of what they claim is the first rigorous test of the effects of live versus online instruction on student performance."
