The truth about teaching to Learning Styles, and what to do instead?

The truth about teaching to Learning Styles, and what to do instead? | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it

Adjusting instruction to individual learning styles seems appealing, but in reality, no two learners are the same and both may not benefit from a singular learning style. Evidence suggests using learning styles actually harms learning, essentially wasting time and energy that could be used to improve learning outcomes.

This research report, The Truth About Teaching to Learning Styles, and What to Do Instead, by Jane Bozarth, explores learning styles and their effect on learning outcomes. Download this report to determine if tailoring instruction to learning styles have an effect on learning outcomes.

Movers shakers & policy makers - Carol Dweck, author, professor of psychology | #GrowthMindset #ModernEDU

Movers shakers & policy makers - Carol Dweck, author, professor of psychology | #GrowthMindset #ModernEDU | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it
What would you say are a few of the biggest myths about growth mindset?

OK, myth No.1 is the myth that it’s all about effort, and that you instil it by praising effort. Effort is one factor that leads to learning. So the ultimate value is growth, progress, learning. And effort is one thing that leads there but there are many other things – strategies, using resources, getting advice, guidance and mentorship, and when people leave that out and just praise effort, it’s not transmitting a growth mindset. Adults have nagged children for centuries to try harder. That’s not a growth mindset, it’s an adult nagging a child to try harder!

Also, we find that when teachers think it’s just about effort and praising effort they may praise effort that isn’t even there, or that’s not effective. So if a child tries hard at something and you say ‘great job, you tried hard’, but they didn’t make progress, they didn’t advance, you’re actually conveying a fixed mindset because you’re saying ‘great effort, I didn’t really expect you to do that, and I don’t expect you to do that, so I’m trying to make you feel good about not doing it’. So we need people to understand that it’s appreciating a variety of process variables that lead to learning.

The second myth is that you can teach students a lesson on growth mindset and put a poster up in the front of the room, and that’s that, that they will have a growth mindset from then on. And we know if the teacher doesn’t then embody a growth mindset, if teachers don’t embody growth mindsets in their teaching practices, in the way that they give feedback when the child is stuck, and the way they present a new unit, in the way that they give opportunities for revision and growth of understanding – if they don’t embody that growth mindset, they are not teaching it. And in fact, if their behaviour contradicts the poster at the front of the room, then maybe they’re doing a disservice.

Poor digital leadership will see universities struggle to attract students

Poor digital leadership will see universities struggle to attract students | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it
A survey of 1,000 16-24 year olds, commissioned by Jisc, found that three quarters (75%) of higher education students surveyed believe that having staff with the appropriate digital skills is an important factor when choosing a university. 99% of students think that technology is becoming increasingly important in education, while 62% believe technology keeps them more engaged.

These student survey results further reinforce the findings of a recent report published by the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) and Jisc titled rebooting learning for the digital age. In the report both parties call on university leaders to embrace new technology to meet the challenges faced by the higher education sector.

Self-Sufficient Learners make Successful Workers

Self-Sufficient Learners make Successful Workers | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it
It's easy to see that escalating technical, socioeconomic, geopolitical, and demographic changes are altering how we work and the nature of jobs. Many call these changes the Fourth Industrial Revolution. During previous industrial revolutions, it took decades for people to develop new skills to meet demand. But change at such a rapid rate forces industries, companies, and workers to either adapt (quickly) or fail. Many newspapers and bookstores are gone. New retail chains are going under each week. It isn't easy to succeed when change is this rapid.

Because of these changes, job skills are shifting. We're seeing jobs emerge that didn't exist 10 years ago (for example, SEO specialist, app developer, and information security analyst), and jobs that have existed are swapping skills to adapt to changes in their organizations and industry. Auto mechanics have been working with the computer parts in automobiles for a while now, but these parts are becoming increasingly complex. Warehouse staff work with automation and use computers to control the machines. Medical and legal staff use increasingly complex computerized systems.

How do people adapt to a rapidly changing workplace and quickly changing job skill needs? They learn to learn better and faster. Metacognitive strategies are among the methods used to help people understand and regulate their learning.

Notice that we didn’t use the more vague ‘good teacher’ phrasing.

That’s an important distinction, because here we’re talking about something a bit more clinical. Not entirely scientific and analytical and icky, but not entirely rhetorical and abstract and mushy either. Something somewhere in the middle–human, efficient, and hopefully happy and sustainable as a result.

Education has far out-stretched its humble beginning that only involved reading, writing and understanding the subjects taught. With changing dynamics, students have evolved from information gatherers to learners looking for practical learning that extends beyond examinations and classrooms. Learning today, breaks the barriers of curriculum, seeping into the nuances of the mind and its effect on the overall development of a student. It takes into consideration, the different kinds of learners, their capabilities and interests, skills and will, to make learning more effective, leading to the emergence of deep learning.

In this survey conduct every year you can find a recompilation of all the problems which education is facing in a general context. As teachers we need to be cautions of the problems the education system is facing and look for ways to fix or overcome this problems. Take a look at the survey results and try to identify which problems the Colombian educational context is facing. As you can see we are pretty much facing most of them and now is time to solve the problems one by one!

[PDF] What makes a School a Learning Organization

[PDF] What makes a School a Learning Organization | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it

What are the characteristics of a school as learning organisation? This paper should be seen as an attempt to work towards a common understanding of the school as learning organisation concept that is both solidly founded in the literature and is recognisable to all parties involved, i.e. educators, policy makers, parents and others alike. The paper provides an in-depth analysis of the learning organisation literature in general, and within a school context. It identifies and operationalises the characteristics of the school as learning organisation in an integrated model that consists of seven overarching ‘action-oriented’ dimensions: 1) developing and sharing a vision centred on the learning of all students; 2) creating and supporting continuous learning opportunities for all staff; 3) promoting team learning and collaboration among staff; 4) establishing a culture of inquiry, innovation and exploration; 5) establishing embedded systems for collecting and exchanging knowledge and learning; 6) learning with and from the external environment and larger learning system; and 7) modelling and growing learning leadership. The dimensions and underlying key characteristics are intended to provide practical guidance on how schools can transform themselves into a learning organisation and ultimately enhance student outcomes.
