Yasamaya Dair- Genco Erkal and Fazıl Say - 3 views

    Genco Erkal and Fazıl Say performing this poet with piano. Not only they are in the flow, also people who is listening and watching also feeling that moment.
    Very good example, very good poem, very good performance. I think "ölmekten korktuğun halde ölüme inanmadığın için" line is one of the best meaningful verse at Turkish poetry. Also, I think this one is better in terms of performance and recording qualities;
    I took a great opportunity to listen them live last year. Its name was "Nazım Oratoryosu" . That was an incredible performance. I recommend that if you have a chance, you can listen them without thinking.

How to use experts when not to - 3 views

    When decisions with important consequences involved, people ask for expert opinion let it be a hotel booking (trip advisor, booking...) or purchasing a book (amazon recommends, kitapyurdu...). If the stakes are high, then it becomes obligatory to go and ask for expert opinion. However this becomes a problem if people rely on experts as if they are getting parental advice. People become addicted to experts because of its certainity, assuredness and definitiveness. In a study, a group of adults' brains' MRI scans when they are listening to experts showed that the independent part of their decision making part of their brains switches off while they are listening. This listening becomes unquestionnable and they use these opinions without distinguishing as right or wrong. Considering the doctors who misdiagnose 4 out of 10, not questionning is an important issue. As a result the role of the expert should change because they are affected by social norms, cultural norms and everything. So their judgements may differ. Think about companies who try to sell their products and include experts in the process. Toothpaste, washing detergents etc. are exagerated. Although they are experts, they have assumptions which may have flaws. People should question and become skeptical about experts. People should not blindly accept or listen, rather they should open their eyes wide open, face the world, use experts for certain things but be aware of their limitations and also their own.

Science Fair Projects - Do we learn better by reading or listening - 0 views

    We have heard some ideas or theories about better learning from our teachers during the school years. I had organized some science fairs during my past teaching years. However none of them was in the project settings. In this project students learn how to carry out a research about how we learn by reading and listening. In your opinion, which one results in more information retained, reading or listening?

Neuro Myths - 5 views

    You've surely heard the slogans: "Our educational games will give your brain a workout!" Or how about, "Give your students the cognitive muscles they need to build brain fitness." And then there's the program that "builds, enhances, and restores natural neural pathways to assist natural learning."

    Male and female brains are radically different? Though there may be subtle differences between male and female brains, there is absolutely no significant evidence to suggest that the genders learn or should be taught differently. This myth might stem from a misinterpretation of books such as The Essential Difference: Men, Women, and the Extreme Male Brain, which focused largely on patients with autism.
    Here is a new reserach about differences of male and female brains. But I think we need more of them to generalize and decide,since the brain is the most complex organ.
    Excellent!!! There are so many myths about education and learning teachers, parents, and children just believe without further inquiry. Take mathfobia for instance. Many girls at very early ages are trained to believe that that cannot do math. Their whole education and career are shaped accordingly. These beliefs and misconceptions are really dangerous, and I have to admit that teachers and professors held many of these myths and educate accordingly.
    I am really disappointed now :( I have been deceived by those myths :( I was very sure about some people are left-brained and some are right-brained or the ages 0-3 are more important than any other age for learning. It is quite interesting that I still do not want to believe that they are wrong :)
    Thank you for this source, there are some like Afranur that disappointed me:) I believe that people taking these myths and carrying them all along can be related with a crucial element of our education system: not emphasizing making critiques and reflections. Fortunately critical literacy is gaining importance, I hope its effects will be seen in our education system as well.
    Now I understand why I felt so incomplete while learning those MYTHS in training sessions :-) As a listener, I always questioned my brain's capacity and thought that only the genius can use their brain's full potential...:-((
    Fischer's ideas are really interesting. I was most confused about his idea of left-right brained.
    As far as I see, this link was shared in this group a long time ago, but I've wanted to make it visible again so that you don't miss it. This is the last post coming from me for this week :).

Self determination Theory - 10 views

Hi Yasin I firstly agree that there are lots of motivation theories. Even some researchers say that, we should stop developing new theories and start integrating existing theories. But SDT is cont...

Beyond Infinity- Robert Haig Coxon - 0 views

    I would like to share the music especially for the ones who are interested in practices for meditation or relaxation. This is the one which is used by one of the professors, Alev Yemenici, who does research and gives seminars on brain-based learning. While you are listening, please do not forget to close your eyes, sit back, take a deep breath and imagine how you feel when you remember one of the good moments you had before. Annnddd let this feeling spread over your body...

Dyned - 2 views

shared by afranur on 09 Nov 13 - No Cached
    Mostly probably all of you are familiar with Dyned. It is an interactive software for learning English and it is a quite good innovation in the field of computer assisted language learning. It is tired to be used in the public schools and Turkish Ministry of Education supports this.

    I used Dyned in my classes for years or I shoud say I tried to use it:) It is really hard to use technology in public schools and also Dyned is a problematic program in terms of various aspects. However, it was really surprising that all the students were eager to login in the system and use Dyned. I really wonder whether it would make any difference in student achievement if Dyned was used in schools properly.
    We have a similar program in my workplace, "Azarinteractive". However, students are extra demotivated to use it though they have chance to practice listening and so forth. I think you are lucky Pınar, to have eager students to use such a tool. :)))
    So perhaps, "motivation" is an important issue to consider with cognitive tutors. Let's cover some of the motivational aspects of cognitive tutors and intelligent tutoring systems in class.
    I think when sts are first introduced with such programs, they display high motivation. They are eager to find the secrets of the program. However, as time passes and as they get used to the style of the program, their motivation decreases since there are no secrets anymore. Therefore, in my opinion, to keep their motivation at its highest level, each module (if it's modular) should introduce new ways of learning.

Listen to a podcast with Jim Pellegrino (Liberal Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor and Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Co-director of UIC's interdisciplinary Learning Sciences Research Institute) - 0 views

    The professor made a distinction between learning and deeper learning and he says deeper learning differs as it does not suggest superficial comprehension. Actually, deeper learning is not something specific to science learning; it is learning with understanding (as far as I understood). Deeper learning is what we mean by learning, is not it?
    Deeper learning is what we are supposed to teach our students. Not superficial but deep and comprehensive knowledge. I don't think that the professor limits it to science learning since he doesn't focus on one subject area "science". What he says is that no matter what students learn, they should be guided and provided help in order to let them get comprehensive and permanent knowledge. Superficial knowledge which is gathered through memorization is more likely to be forgotton soon.
