Ricardo Gudwin's Home Page

Aprendizagem ativa é um termo técnico para um conjunto de práticas pedagógicas que abordam a questão da aprendizagem pelos alunos sob uma perspectiva diferente das técnicas clássicas de aprendizagem, tais como aulas discursivas, onde espera-se que o professor "ensine" e o aluno "aprenda". Na aprendizagem ativa, entende-se que o aluno não deve ser meramente um "recebedor" de informações, mas deve se engajar de maneira ativa na aquisição do conhecimento, focando seus objetivos e indo atrás do conhecimento de maneira pró-ativa.

Mas como isso funciona ? Bem, parece interessante, mas na prática como isso funciona ? Em primeiro lugar, é necessária uma mudança filosófica na postura do professor em sala de aula. E isso funciona mesmo ? Utilizar técnicas de aprendizagem ativa, não é fazer experimentações com os alunos. E como os alunos reagem à aplicação de técnicas de aprendizagem ativa ? Existem diferentes tipos de reações. O que é "Peer Instruction" ? Improve your teaching and that of your team. Meet The Teachery Features.

Learning. Linguistics. Academic writing. English dictionary. Dictionaries. Glossary. Abduction : This is a term used by Peirce to refer to a form of inference (alongside and ) by which we treat a signifier as an instance of a rule from a familiar code , and then infer what it signifies by applying that rule.

Aberrant decoding : Eco's term referring to decoding a text by means of a different code from that used to encode it. See also: Codes , Decoding , Encoding and decoding model of communication Absent signifiers : Signifiers which are absent from a text but which (by contrast) nevertheless influence the meaning of a signifier actually used (which is drawn from the same paradigm set). Two forms of absence have specific labels in English: that which is 'conspicuous by its absence' and that which 'goes without saying'.

Here’s an ambiguous sentence for you: “Because of the agency’s oversight, the corporation’s behavior was sanctioned.”

14 Words That Are Their Own Opposites

Does that mean, 'Because the agency oversaw the company’s behavior, they imposed a penalty for some transgression' or does it mean, 'Because the agency was inattentive, they overlooked the misbehavior and gave it their approval by default'? We’ve stumbled into the looking-glass world of “contronyms”—words that are their own antonyms. 1. Sanction (via French, from Latin sanctio(n-), from sancire ‘ratify,’) can mean ‘give official permission or approval for (an action)’ or conversely, ‘impose a penalty on.’ *2. Oversight is the noun form of two verbs with contrary meanings, “oversee” and “overlook.”

The contronym (also spelled “contranym”) goes by many names, including “auto-antonym,” “antagonym,” “enantiodrome,” “self-antonym,” “antilogy” and “Janus word” (from the Roman god of beginnings and endings, often depicted with two faces looking in opposite directions). Contronyms: Negatives Without Positives. Suffixes Sometimes antonyms are formed by appending the suffixes -ful and -less onto English words, as with joyful and joyless.

Contronyms: Negatives Without Positives

But sometimes one is an English word and the other isn't. For example, reckless is an English word, and reckful is not. Other times, one is more commonly used than the other: ruthless and ruthful are both legitimate English words, but the former is used far more frequently than the latter. Special Cases An interesting special case is indefatigable, whose antonym is not defatigable but rather fatigable. Online Etymology Dictionary. The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation.
