Inmiddels zwerven er op het web als je goed Googled wel een aantal cheat cheets van een aantal social media websites maar nog nooit heeft iemand de tijd genomen om ze echt eens onder elkaar te plaatsen.

Online Psychology Courses

Psychology is the study of the functions and behaviors of the mind, and how those affect more general human behavior. Psychologists can occupy three different categories, depending on the focus of their course of study. A-Glimpse-into-the-Future-of-Learning-Infographic_0.pdf. PEEL project for enhancing effective learning. The Project for Enhancing Effective Learning (PEEL) was founded in 1985 by a group of teachers and academics who shared concerns about the prevalence of passive, unreflective, dependent student learning, even in apparently successful lessons.

PEEL project for enhancing effective learning

They set out to research classroom approaches that would stimulate and support student learning that was more informed, purposeful, intellectually active, independent and metacognitive. The project was unfunded and not a result of any system or institution-level initiative. PEEL teachers agree to meet on a regular basis, in their own time, to share and analyse experiences, ideas and new practices. The original project was intended to run for two years at one (secondary) school, however the process of collaborative action-research, the developments of so many new ideas for practice and the changes in classroom environment all proved very rewarding for the teachers.

Mastery Learning and Content Creation on the iPad. By Heather Parris-Fitzpatrick In this era of testing , it’s a good time to reflect on the elements of Mastery Learning as an instructional model and see how it may benefit the 21st century English Language Learner.

Mastery Learning and Content Creation on the iPad

ESL students of every proficiency level can benefit from this approach. ELLs routinely participate in standardized assessments that are designed for native language speakers. Oftentimes these students cannot accurately demonstrate their mastery of a topic without yet having mastery of the English language. With the iPad and a mastery learning approach students can create dynamic and entertaining multimedia presentations that can be used as alternative assessments that inform instruction.

Most mastery learning concepts come from Benjamin Bloom who coined the term. The Key To Learning: Knowing How Learning Works. What’s the key to effective learning?

The Key To Learning: Knowing How Learning Works

One intriguing body of research suggests a rather riddle-like 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. We’re comfortable talking about concrete information: names, dates, numbers, facts. In our schools, “little emphasis—if any—is placed on training students how they should go about learning the content and what skills will promote efficient studying to support robust learning,” writes John Dunlosky, professor of psychology at Kent State University in Ohio, in an article just published in American Educator.

Helping Learners Remember What They Learn: 4 Time-Tested Principles

They usually incorporate new insights, test them and repeat what works. Over time, the weaker insights falter then fade while the stronger ones remain. These scientific principles that stood the test of time are really worth looking at. Forget About Learning Styles. Here’s Something Better. Tuesday, October 15, 2013 Whenever I speak to audiences about the science of learning, as I’ve been doing a lot this fall, one topic always comes up in the Q&A sessions that follow my talk: learning styles.

Forget About Learning Styles. Here’s Something Better.

Learning styles—the notion that each student has a particular mode by which he or she learns best, whether it’s visual, auditory or some other sense—is enormously popular. It’s also been thoroughly debunked. A Few Words on ePortfolios. I was asked, I think that it would be of a great interest that you (as a world wide reference in education) can write a very brief review (between 200-300 words) about your vision regarding ePortfolios.

A Few Words on ePortfolios

(Graphic: Helen Barrett ) e-Portfolios have been around for a number of years now and we're beginning to see how they may be applied in learning and development. An e-portfolio is a collection of digital materials uploaded by a student to an e-portfolio repository; the repository owners can then make this material available publicly to prospective employers or clients, as requested by the student. A good example of such a system is the Desire2Learn ePortfolio system. A good ePortfolio system will not only allow storage and sharing, but also interact with social networks and support comments and annotations.
