Why Your Students Forgot Everything On Your PowerPoint Slides | EdSurge News - 31 views

  • We’ve all got a limited amount of working memory, so when we have to handle information in more than one way, our load gets heavier, and progressively more challenging to manage.
  • when you lighten the load, it’s easier for students’ brains to take information in and transform it into memory.
  • The duplicated pieces of information--spoken and written--don’t positively reinforce one another; instead, the two effectively flood students’ abilities to handle the information.

  • So why are students relegated to lectures when it’s proven that active learning can significantly enhance the educational experience?
    • Matt Renwick
      Simple. They don't have instructional beliefs that they all agree upon. These teachers work as independent contractors, and take any criticism of their practice personally. But they forget that it is not about them. It's about the students.
    • Paul Klym
      I think that you have forgot to include a lack of professional development (training) to demonstrate successful educational strategies.  Telling someone (a teacher) they must change is just like a lecture.  Showing them how they can change their practice to make a difference is needed as well.

Charter School Study Finds High Teacher Pay Helps Students - WSJ - WSJ - 20 views

  • After four years at the charter school, eighth-graders showed average test score gains in math equal to an additional year and a half of school, compared with district students.
  • an extra half-year in science and almost an extra half-year in English
  • the charter has a lean administrative staff and slightly larger classes—31 students compared with an average of about 26 or 27 in district schools—so it can pour resources into teacher pay and training.
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • Days are long, with teachers at work from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and students attending from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Teachers are observed by colleagues and get feedback weekly, and they have four weeks of full-day professional development each year.
  • Many teachers don’t last. Of 43 hired during the four years studied, 47% didn’t return for a second year, in most cases because they weren’t asked back.
    • Matt Renwick
      I wonder why - performance, or too much stress due to longer hours and out of work expectations? Regardless, this high turnover rate has got to impact the kids in the end.
  • Critics of charter schools say, among other complaints, that they drain money from regular public schools, skim talented students and nudge out disruptive ones.
