How to Think Without Googling - Forge - 18 views

  •  
    It's not just Google. The Web has wiped out all the basic knowledge about practical critical thinking and problem solving that we used to learn through reinforcement learning - which made us far more able to be independent entities in all kinds of unique and atypical situations. Perhaps this is contributing to the rise of anxiety in young people: without those cognitive tools and skills, people are no longer sure of themselves as they once were.

The Value of Argument by @History__Girls - 23 views

    "Debating societies may seem to be the preserve of Oxbridge and private schools, but there is a place for debating in classrooms everywhere, argues Gemma Jones Debating societies may seem to be the preserve of Oxbridge and private schools, but there is a place for debating in classrooms everywhere. From 'Why William Won the Battle of Hastings' to 'causes of the First World War', history is a natural subject to use debates to deepen knowledge in lessons. However, across the curriculum there is scope to engage the pupils in a structured debate to challenge misconceptions, structure arguments and encourage independent study. Additionally, participating in debates can develop confidence and public speaking skills."

Using praise (in brief) by @thisiseducation - 14 views

  •  
    "Praise seems such an obvious part of a teacher's role that it is often overlooked. However, like all tools the use of praise does need constant practice and planning in order for it to become a positive habit. With care, its use can be a highly effective intervention that supports young people with social, emotional or mental health needs as well as benefitting all pupils."
