  • “So,” Juárez Correa said, “what do you want to learn?”
  • “If you put a computer in front of children and remove all other adult restrictions, they will self-organize around it,” Mitra says, “like bees around a flower.”
  • There will be no teachers, curriculum, or separation into age groups—just six or so computers and a woman to look after the kids’ safety. His defining principle: “The children are completely in charge.”
  • Theorists from Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi to Jean Piaget and Maria Montessori have argued that students should learn by playing and following their curiosity.
  • Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin similarly claim that their Montessori schooling imbued them with a spirit of independence and creativity.
  • The study found that when the subjects controlled their own observations, they exhibited more coordination between the hippocampus and other parts of the brain involved in learning and posted a 23 percent improvement in their ability to remember objects.

Do the Best Professors Get the Worst Ratings? - 2 views

  •  
    To summarize the findings: because they didn't teach to the test, the professors who instilled the deepest learning in their students came out looking the worst in terms of student evaluations and initial exam performance. To me, these results were staggering, and I don't say that lightly.

Decoding Digital Pedagogy, pt. 1: Beyond the LMS | Digital Pedagogy | HYBRID PEDAGOGY - 2 views

    "What's the difference between digital pedagogy and teaching online?" Challenges to the the now-old new (weak online instruction) and to the same-old, same-old: "Pedagogy is a scholarship unto itself, a study of learning and the many ways it is fueled . . ."

Rethinking the Way College Students Are Taught - 52 views

  • But here's the irony. "Mary is more likely to convince John than professor Mazur in front of the class," Mazur says.

    "She's only recently learned it and still has some feeling for the conceptual difficulties that she has whereas professor Mazur learned [the idea] such a long time ago that he can no longer understand why somebody has difficulty grasping it."

    That's the irony of becoming an expert in your field, Mazur says. "It becomes not easier to teach, it becomes harder to teach because you're unaware of the conceptual difficulties of a beginning learner."

  • To make sure his students are prepared, Mazur has set up a web-based monitoring system where everyone has to submit answers to questions about the reading prior to coming to class. The last question asks students to tell Mazur what confused them. He uses their answers to prepare a set of multiple-choice questions he uses during class.
  • Mazur begins class by giving a brief explanation of a concept he wants students to understand. Then he asks one of the multiple-choice questions. Students get a minute to think about the question on their own and then answer it using a mobile device that sends their answers to Mazur's laptop.

    Next, he asks the students to turn to the person sitting next to them and talk about the question. The class typically erupts in a cacophony of voices, as it did that first time he told students to talk to each other because he couldn't figure out what else to do.

    Once the students have discussed the question for a few minutes, Mazur instructs them to answer the question again.

      Why do we continue to do things the same way we always have and expect different results from what we have always gotten?
    • Beverly Ozburn
       
      How true this statement is!  If students want to learn, they are going to learn in spite of who the teacher is or what the teacher does - no teacher is really needed!
  • So Mazur gave what he thought was a thorough and thoughtful explanation of the concept. He went slowly, putting all kinds of helpful diagrams up on the board.

    "I thought I'd nailed it," he says. "I thought it was the best explanation one could possibly give of this question."

    Mazur triumphantly turned around. "Any questions?" he asked. The students just stared at him.

    "Nobody raised their hand and said, well but what if this and what if that, simply because they were so confused they couldn't," he says. "I didn't know what to do. But I knew one thing. I knew that 50 percent of the students had given the right answer."

      How many times have we done this when we are providing direct instructions to students and then felt frustration when we assess what they know?  ARGH!

The Ed Techie: Innovating Pedagogy report - 0 views

    Here at IET in the OU, a bunch of us, led by Mike Sharples, were asked to produce an annual report on how changes in teaching and learning (related to technology) were changing the current landscape. ... Think of it as like a Horizon's report with more focus on pedagogy. We adopted the same methodology as the Horizon report also.

Do Learning Styles exist? - Home - 2 views

  • If Learning Styles exist then the teachers should teach in the style that a student  prefers to learn. But, Willingham (Willingham, 2009) has shown that if the subject is visual then the teachers should teach in a visual style and not an aural style. For example, if the subject is geography and we are teaching the shapes of the countries in Africa then we should teach in a visual style, even if we know that the student is an aural learner.

    One should teach in the manner that the topic demands. Another way to put it is, the way one learns is topic dependent as Curwin thinks (Curwin, 1999).

YouTube - No More "Learners" - 1 views

  • The instructor/learner relationship needs re-thinking. We've got to be learning from one another, not shoveling learning at "learners." We are all learners, all the time, and we can get better at it.

      Rubbish. Teachers need to teach. These vacuous ideas that students know as much as teachers and we all teach each other have led to a dangerous decline in educational standards in the West. People do not process in a vacuum; they need to know the content before they can engage in that 'higher-order thinking' Blooms gunk. These theories are an excuse for teachers who don't know their subjects to feel less shamed at their ignorance.

    Do you speak/teach from a pulpit?

    Take a look at "No More Learners" What was your first thought(s) when viewing this?

    Does 'talking down' to learners go on? Perhaps it goes on some; but, I don't think a great deal today.

    Who out there thinks they are or were ever in the pulpit? I was in the 70's and changed in 80's. There are too many smarter learners out there.

    Please consider leaving your IMHO comment as a note.
