Why Is the Research on Learning Styles Still Being Dismissed by Some Learning Leaders and Practitioners? I have been battling the notion of "designing instruction for learning styles" in my own quixotic fashion for a couple of decades now. In my attempt to be a good steward of my clients' shareholders' equity I wished to help them avoid faddish instructional design practices that have been disproven by empirical research. I first learned back in the 1980s at NSPI (now ISPI) conferences that while self-reported learning style preferences do exist, that designing instruction to accommodate them has no basis. When I posted yet again on this topic on my blog a couple of months ago and then sent a Tweet out about it—Jane Bozarth, EIC of this magazine, invited me to publish an article. I accepted and decided to reach out to the usual suspects, those in my professional crowd who know the research, for their inputs. As I am but a practitioner attempting to follow what I have learned over the years about the research, I am not steeped in that research and able to cite it, they can. From Richard E.

Practical Biology This website is for teachers of biology in schools and colleges. It is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of biological concepts and processes. Experiments are placed within real-life contexts, and have links to carefully selected further reading. Biology is a practical science. We have published a new set of resources to support the teaching of practical science for Key Stages 3-5. Unfortunately, we are unable to respond to questions from teachers, technicians or students on how to use the experiments on this website.

21st Century Ed concepts Flipped learning: A response to five common criticisms One of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what “flipped learning” is. Over the past few years, the Flipped Learning method has created quite a stir. Some argue that this teaching method will completely transform education, while others say it is simply an opportunity for boring lectures to be viewed in new locations. While the debate goes on, the concept of Flipped Learning is not entirely new. It’s our opinion that one of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what Flipped Learning is. Dr.

TIC et pédagogie inversée Le concept de pédagogie inversée est de plus en plus populaire actuellement même si cette approche est loin d'être novatrice, comme on le constate dans ce billet d'eSchoolNews consacré au flipped learning. Un certain nombre de contributions en ligne s'en font néanmoins l'écho depuis le début de l'année 2012. Qu'est-ce que la pédagogie inversée ? Cette approche aux contours encore flous repose à l'évidence sur l'usage des outils numériques et vise à éviter la dérive d'un enseignement trop frontal et magistral. Blog, carte mentale et pédagogie inversée Le blog pédagogique de Paul-André Bouchard, professeur en techniques du milieu naturel au cégep de St-Félicien (Québec), s'inscrit dans cette perspective en expérimentant depuis quelques temps l'usage des cartes mentales. Vous trouverez ci-dessous un exemple de carte mis à disposition par l'auteur via la plateforme de partage XMindShare : Innovation et pédagogie inversée D'autres enseignants s'inscrivent aussi résolument dans cette démarche.
