What is a Learning Strategy - 7 views

  •  
    "Learning Strategies Learning strategies refer to methods that students use to Learn. This ranges from techniques for improved memory to better studying or test-taking strategies. For example, the method of loci is a classic memory improvement technique; it involves making associations between facts to be remembered and particular locations. In order to remember something, you simply visualize places and the associated facts. Some Learning strategies involve changes to the design of instruction. For example, the use of questions before, during or after instruction has been shown to increase the degree of Learning (see Ausubel). Methods that attempt to increase the degree of Learning that occurs have been called "mathemagenic" (Ropthkopf, 1970). A typical study skill program is SQ3R which suggests 5 steps: (1) survey the material to be Learned, (2) develop questions about the material, (3) read the material, (4) recall the key ideas, and (5) review the material. Research on metacognition may be relevant to the study of Learning strategies in so far as they are both concerned with control processes. A number of Learning theories emphasize the importance of Learning strategies including: double loop Learning ( Argyris ), conversation theory (Pask), and lateral thinking ( DeBono ). Weinstein (1991) discusses Learning strategies in the context of social interaction, an important aspect of Situated Learning Theory. References: H.F. O'Neil (1978). Learning strategies.

Education Week: E-Learning for Special Populations - 3 views

  • This special report, another installment in Education Week's series on virtual education, examines the growing e-learning opportunities for students with disabilities, English-language learners, gifted and talented students, and those at risk of failing in school. It shows the barriers that exist for greater participation among special populations, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of this approach. It also looks at the funding tactics schools are using to build virtual education programs for special populations and the evolving professional-development needs for these efforts.

Nik's Quick Shout: Survey Results: Mobile learning for ELT - 1 views

  •  
    The purpose of the survey was to ascertain the level of awareness and openness to mobile learning among English language teachers. I also wanted to find out to what degree and how teachers were already using mobile learning both in their teaching and and professional development and to establish whether they would be willing to pay for and use mobile content. The survey also collected information about the teachers' existing access to mobile services and the kinds of device they are using to get access to mobile Internet.

LearnCentral - 8 views

  •  
    About LearnCentral LearnCentral is a new social Learning network for education, sponsored by Elluminate. More than a social network or a Learning community, this free, open environment represents the next logical step of combining asynchronous social networking and the ability to store, organize, and find educational resources with the live, online meeting and collaboration provided by Elluminate technology. Not just for Elluminate customers, LearnCentral is for any educator who is passionate about teaching and Learning and wants to find and connect with like-minded colleagues to share content, develop best practices, and collaborate on a global level. While still in its early stages, LearnCentral has the potential to make a significant historical difference in how educators work together for professional development in their own careers.

SpeEdChange: The Big Lies (Part Two) - 9 views

  • Why is a second grader "comparing and contrasting"? Because the Common Core is designed to preserve education as a self-contained hazing ritual for wealth and power maintenance. From the start we are preparing students to write the worthless five paragraph essay, so that those who comply best succeed best.
  • It is, of course, within those "extras" that the human spirit lies. Why learn to read if you cannot read about the things which matter most to you? Why learn to write if you can not write a song? Why learn to count if you do not appreciate the value of what you are counting?
  • The reason we must abandon "core subjects" and embrace Passion-Based Learning is that today we give students absolutely no reason to Learn anything. We have turned school into a series of chores with no purpose. Eight-year-olds hate books and reading because they've spent three years drilling in decoding - literacy is pointless effort, not a path to passions. Sixteen-year-olds hate mathematics because they've spent eleven years drilling with numbers, x-s and y-s - maths are totally irrelevant, not a link to a magical world of real and virtual construction.

ALERT Processes - 6 views

  •  
    Students today need to learn to live amid vast amounts of information. They need to learn to construct points of view using reason, evidence, and intelligent emotions. Such skills and understandings are best taught by helping them create original presentations, drawing on original research from primary sources.\n\n Through learning expeditions planned to include the ALERT processes, young researchers can explore and contribute to their cultural heritage.

Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century / FrontPage - 5 views

  •  
    This site represents a collective effort to explore teaching and learning in the 21st century and beyond. The list of teachers and student knowledge, skills, and dispositions was initially generated by teachers and administrators from Rockland County BOCES who explored a number of resources and references on 21st learning. The lists are a work in progress and will benefit greatly from the continued exploration and addition of outcomes by those who visit this site.

150 Questions to Write or Talk About - NYTimes.com - 30 views

  • For almost two years now, we’ve posted a fresh Student Opinion question every weekday.Each question was originally inspired by something in that week’s New York Times, and all of them are still open to comment by anyone between the ages of 13 and 25.Teachers tell us they use them as “bell-ringers,” as inspiration for lessons, as jumping-off points for student research and journalism, or just to help students practice writing persuasively and responding to others around the world. (We don’t allow last names, and we read each and every comment ourselves before we make it public, so it’s a pretty civil, and safe, place to post.)Below, 1

  • While this level of connection and shared information is a great first step in community building, it does not necessarily lead to learning communities or the sharing of ideas. This must happen intentionally and is where the instructor is very much a necessary support to the process.

2¢ Worth » It Was Good Enough for Me - 4 views

  • We are not working under these conditions because of our zip code or because of some unavoidably cyclical function of our reality. These constraints do not happen like weather patterns that we simply have to hunker down and wait out. They happen because of decisions that people make due to greed, misinformation, politico-social agendas, or ignorance.
  • “What was good enough for me is good enough for ‘your’ children.”
  • What interests me are products that help students learn to learn by empowering them to gaze upon the world they are learning about and to interact with the world, not by giving them better access to the classroom and instructor.
