Do Students Know Enough Smart Learning Strategies?

One intriguing body of research suggests a rather gnomic answer: It’s not just what you know. It’s what you know about what you know. To put it in more straightforward terms, anytime a student learns, he or she has to bring in two kinds of prior knowledge: knowledge about the subject at hand (say, mathematics or history) and knowledge about how learning works. Parents and educators are pretty good at imparting the first kind of knowledge. Research has found that students vary widely in what they know about how to learn, according to a team of educational researchers from Australia writing in this month’s issue of the journal Instructional Science. Teaching students good learning strategies would ensure that they know how to acquire new knowledge, which leads to improved learning outcomes, writes lead author Helen Askell-Williams of Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia.

Litteracitet. Kognitionssimulatorn - Gibbon - Playlists for Learning. Blubbr. Always nice to find a new tool!


I had the chance to catch Shelly Terrel this weekend and learned about an easy and fast tool to use. Blubbr is a super easy site that makes "games" which basically ask questions based on short chunks of YouTube videos. Since I am talking about pronunciation on Wednesday (If you haven't joined the eltmooc yet there's still time!) I took an older comedian sketch by the Two Ronnies. The sketch is based on a fun encounter of a clerk who can't understand what a customer wants. If you laughed a bit, and you feel like your students would enjoy it, then I think you'll enjoy Wednesday's class. Spel som tränar hjärnan.
