Learning and Cognitive Load - An Introduction - 1 views

    What does it mean to have learned something? What occurs within the individual as they are learning and what changes occur as a result of that learning? At some point in the teaching/learning cycle we need to ask this question and ponder our definition of learning and the consequences that follow from our conclusions.

      Hi Shikha and Steven. This is how it works. The benefit is that when you make changes, then the history is kept, and the change will not be overturned.

陶西平:"翻转课堂"与"生成课程"-搜狐教育 - 1 views

    其实是生成课堂,生成课程理念在中学的应用。我是做大学,理念阐述的清楚--byhe 学生的学习过程通常由两个阶段组成:第一个阶段是接受教师的"知识传递",第二个阶段是"知识内化"。在传统的教学模式中,接受教师的"知识传递"是在课堂上进行的,而"知识内化"是在课外通过作业练习完成的。而"翻转课堂"对这一传统模式进行了"翻转"--知识的获得由学生在课下完成,他们通过使用信息技术或者阅读文本教材自行学习,教师可以通过提供短小的视频、对特定的问题进行有针对性的讲解、在线辅导等为学生提供帮助;而"知识内化"则是在课堂上通过互动来完成的,教师通过了解学生的学习困难,给予有效辅导,同时通过组织多主体、多层面的相互交流,促进知识的吸收与内化。这样,课堂这一教学主阵地的功能就发生了改变:它主要不是用来获取知识,而是促进知识的内化和应用。课堂不再是预设的过程,而是生成的过程。

     I teach 6th grade. We are not allowed to have our [under age 13] students sign up on any website that requires personally identifiable information. Can I create a "generic" account that all of my students may use for a class project?

The beauty of unfinished work - The Learner's Way - 31 views

    • Beverly Ozburn
      I love this concept!  The focus is on the process of learning.  Doesn't that also help to identify the way we learn as well as the progress of the learning?
    • Beverly Ozburn
      The down side of this is that there also has to be some sort of focus on the importance of completing what is started.  Everything might not have to have an end product but some things certainly should have!
  • At times it has been deeply admonished and hidden from view. Individuals who failed were to be shunned or punished. At other times failure was to be avoided by setting the bar for success so low that failure was impossible. The result of this movement was that success became meaningless, achievable by all without risk and through little effort.

      The generation when who were deeply admonished and hidden is older and most are relieved that this is no longer the case.  The generation who were shunned or punished seem to still be a part of the mainstream but most have embraced that this is no longer the case.  The generation who were part of the low expectations with failure impossible seem to be the predominance of the population now and we are seeing that there is no concept of consequences, no motivation toward high achievement, and an attitude of entitlement.
    • Beverly Ozburn
      This seems like we are evolving but moving more in a cyclical fashion and thinking more like the early innovators in our country - Jefferson, Franklin, Ford, Bell - We see a need for something and strive to create it - marking our failures as a way of knowing, "well that won't work so lets find something that will."
  • A culture that accepts failure as a part of the learning process will need to take time to celebrate the steps taken towards learning as much as it celebrates the finished product.
  • A digital work of art, of music of writing is never truly finished, it grows and transforms over time. 
    • Beverly Ozburn
      Transformation from the mindset of this is done, this if finished, this is the final draft to here is where we are at this point but it may be revisited, revised, refined at a later time.
  • mistakes are a sign that the learning is not pitched at a level below the needs of the students; if the students are not making mistakes when they engage with new learning the expectation has been set too low.
  • What must be avoided is a belief that mistakes are to be accepted without an equal emphasis on identifying and understanding their causes.
    • Beverly Ozburn
      Identify and understand the causes of mistakes so that another attempt can be made at correcting them and progress is made!
    There is a danger in seeking finished perfection in all that we do. There is a risk that our students will focus solely on the attributes that define a finished piece and overlook the importance of the process that leads to it.
