Neurocrap

Kirschner & Mirjam Neelen In the past few decades, myths about our brains and their functioning – so called neuromyths – have been born, been propagated and have stubbornly lived on. In schools and higher education institutions as well as in the workplace, this ‘neurocrap’ seems to persist and is used to justify a mass of ineffective instructional or learning approaches. Howard-Jones stated in his recently published article in Nature Reviews Neuroscience: “Imagine that brains are active for only 10%, shrink if you do not drink 6-8 glasses of water per day and that the communication between the two brain halves can be stimulated by massaging two invisible buttons on your chest”.

What Sir Ken Got Wrong. “We are educating people out of their creativity” Sir Ken Robinson Sir Ken Robinson’s ideas on education are not only impractical; they are undesirable.

What Sir Ken Got Wrong

If you’re interested in education, at some point someone will have sent you a link to a video by Sir Ken Robinson, knighted for services to education in England in 2003. He has over 250,000 followers on Twitter, his videos have had over 40,000,000 views online, and his 2006 lecture is the most viewed TED talk of all time. The RSA Opening Minds curriculum his ideas are associated with is taught in over 200 schools in the UK.

What's the best teaching method? Seventy teachers from the UK were sent to Shanghai to study classroom methods to investigate why Chinese students perform so well.

What's the best teaching method?

Upon their return, the teachers reported that much of China’s success came from teaching methods the UK has been moving away from for the past 40 years. The Chinese favour a “chalk and talk” approach, whereas countries such as the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand have been moving away from this direct form of teaching to a more collaborative form of learning where students take greater control. Given China’s success in international tests such as PISA, TIMSS and PIRLS, it seems we have been misguided in abandoning the traditional, teacher-directed method of learning where the teacher spends more time standing at the front of the class, directing learning and controlling classroom activities.

Direct instruction vs inquiry learning Debates about direct instruction versus inquiry learning have been ongoing for many years. Click to enlarge. On Pi Day, a serving of why we need math. Posted: Friday, March 13, 2015, 1:08 AM By Darren Glass On Saturday, our Facebook feeds will be peppered with references to Pi Day, a day of celebration that has long been acknowledged by math fans and that Congress recognized in 2009.

On Pi Day, a serving of why we need math

Every high schooler learns that pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter and that its decimal expansion begins 3.14 and goes on infinitely without repeating. Mathematicians love pi because there are many interesting facts surrounding it. Other people seem to get a kick out of dates that demonstrate patterns. But why do we need a pi holiday? As a mathematician, I see that it's all good fun, but I do worry that the popularity of this Internet meme reinforces the idea that math is simply a series of trivial facts, arcane rules, and rote memorization.

Mathematics is about logical thinking and problem-solving. Mathematics is also about understanding patterns and structure. 20150204_23865.jpg (JPEG Image, 1348 × 917 pixels) - Scaled (75%) Técnicas de demostración para casos ‘desesperados’ ¿Has olvidado la forma de demostrar un resultado en mitad de una exposición?

Rasmus Bååth and Christian Robert Being more or less an autodidact when it comes to statistics, I have a weak spot for books that try to introduce statistics in an accessible way.

A Brief Review of All Comic Books Teaching Statistics

I have therefore collected what I believe are all books that introduce statistics using comics (at least those written in English). Except for including comics, these four books (yes, there are four) have in common that they assume no previous experience in statistics and are mostly focused on classical null hypothesis significance testing. Where they differ, and here they differ a lot, is in how well they explain the material. The best book is a real class act while one almost seems to be written to confuse. ¿Una casta universitaria? Buenos profesores malas calificaciones. La evaluación del profesorado es, y siempre ha sido, muy complicada.

Buenos profesores malas calificaciones

Esto lleva a cuestiones absurdas, como el hecho de que para acreditarte como profesor universitario la investigación te la evalúan por su calidad, mientras que la docencia se evalúa "al peso". Sin embargo, por muy absurdo que sea es un problema difícil de resolver, porque no sabemos bien cómo evaluar a un profesor* de una manera objetiva y fiable. Una medida cada día más en boga es la evaluación por parte de los alumnos. Atención, pregunta: ¿Sabe un alumno qué es lo mejor para su aprendizaje? La enseñanza universitaria en España giraba en torno a las materias que el estudiante debía cursar para obtener un título académico.

Atención, pregunta: ¿Sabe un alumno qué es lo mejor para su aprendizaje?

Gracias al Proceso de Bolonia se ha pretendido que gire en torno al estudiante, que al fin y al cabo es el cliente. Por desgracia no ha tenido el éxito esperado y se han desvirtuado las ideas que lo hicieron emerger. Aún así, cada día son más importantes las evaluaciones del sistema que realizan los alumnos.

Spreadsheet Addiction. Some people will think that the “addiction” in the title is over the top, or at least used metaphorically. It is used literally, and is not an exaggeration. Addiction is the persistent use of a substance where that use is detrimental to the user. It is not the substance that is the problem — more limited use may be beneficial. It is the extent and circumstances of the use that determine if the behavior is addictive or not.

Spreadsheets are a wonderful invention.
