Make It Stick — Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, Mark A. McDaniel. To most of us, learning something “the hard way” implies wasted time and effort.

Make It Stick — Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, Mark A. McDaniel

Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners. Memory plays a central role in our ability to carry out complex cognitive tasks, such as applying knowledge to problems never before encountered and drawing inferences from facts already known.

New insights into how memory is encoded, consolidated, and later retrieved have led to a better understanding of how we learn. Many common study habits and practice routines turn out to be counterproductive. Daniel Pink on the surprising science of motivation.

Atención. Si vas a aprender algo, necesitas estar prestando atención. De la misma manera, por ejemplo, estás adormilado, drogado, enfermo, nervioso o incluso “hiper”, aprenderás menos bien. Igualmente ocurre si estás distraído por un estímulo competitivo. Alguna de las cosas que influye sobre la atención tiene que ver con las propiedades del modelo. 2. 3. 4.

As new practitioners discuss their problems with their fellows, or learn from their colleagues how to integrate the practice with the rest of their business workflow; in such a way, the CoP becomes a repository and dissemination mechanism combined for best practice - Etienne Wenger Communities of Practice: Learning, Meaning, and Identity (1998).

Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger - Community of Practice

Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger pioneer the concept of a Community of Practice (CoP) in their book, Situated Learning: Legitimate Peripheral Participation. (1991) They theorized that knowledge can be developed through social and spontaneous communities that are driven by common interests and passions, whereas innovation lies in the interaction between different communities. A community of practice defines itself along three dimensions: What it is about: A joint enterprise as understood and continually renegotiated by its members. How it functions: A mutual engagement that bind members together into a social entity. Lave and Wenger Further Reading. David A. Kolb on experiential learning.

David A. Kolb on experiential learning.

On the one hand the term is used to describe the sort of learning undertaken by students who are given a chance to acquire and apply knowledge, skills and feelings in an immediate and relevant setting. Experiential learning thus involves a, ‘direct encounter with the phenomena being studied rather than merely thinking about the encounter, or only considering the possibility of doing something about it.’ (Borzak 1981: 9 quoted in Brookfield 1983). The second type of experiential learning is ‘education that occurs as a direct participation in the events of life’ (Houle 1980: 221). Kelly - David Kolb, The Theory of Experiential Learning and ESL.

Kelly - David Kolb, The Theory of Experiential Learning and ESL

"Experiential" learning is not just "fieldwork" or "praxis" (the connecting of learning to real life situations) although it is the basis for these approaches, it is a theory that defines the cognitive processes of learning. In particular, it asserts the importance of critical reflection in learning. As we shall see, David Kolb was one of the key contributors.

Background: 20th Century Theories of Learning In my opinion, the greatest single event in this century that has shaped our view of teaching did not occur in the field of education at all, but rather, in psychology. In the first half of this century, a reductionist view of human behavior - behaviorialism - dominated the field.
