Real-world learning vs. school grades & credits. No contest. Blogger Central, The Student Voice Jack Hostager is a high school sophomore enrolled in an Eastern Iowa High School. His blog, Straight from the Desk, seeks to add the seldom heard voice of the student. Jack prefers to keep the name of the school he attends private in order to keep the conversation focused on the larger system rather than assuming any of his comments are strictly about his school alone. At the beginning of March, I was lucky enough to spend five days with three friends in Washington, DC at the Coastal America Student Summit on the Oceans and Coasts. It took a lot to get this project off the ground. These all sound like skills that every student should have. After returning inspired and ready to change the world only to be thrust back into the invariable cycle of desks, worksheets, textbooks, and lockers, education’s expectation for me hit me painfully hard.

Concocting a Cure for Kids With Issues You can do nothing — and watch your child flounder while teachers register their disapproval. Or you can get help, which generally means, first, an expensive and time-consuming evaluation, then more visits with more specialists, intensive tutoring, therapies, perhaps, or, as is often the case with attention issues, drugs. For many parents — particularly the sorts of parents who are skeptical of mainstream medicine and of the intentions of what one mother once described to me as “the learning-disability industrial complex” — this experience is an exercise in frustration and alienation. These parents often don’t trust the mental-health professionals who usually treat children with “issues,” as we euphemistically tend to refer to problems like learning disabilities, attention-deficit disorder, or other developmental difficulties. That’s why some of these parents end up seeking the services of people like Stanley A. To the uninitiated, vision therapy is a funny-looking endeavor.

Brain-Based Online Learning Design January 24, 2013 By: Rob Kelly in Online Education Abreena Tompkins, instruction specialist at Surry Community College, has developed a brain-based online course design model based on a meta-analysis of more than 300 articles. In this study, she distilled the following elements of brain-based course design: Low-risk, nonthreatening learning environment Challenging, real-life, authentic assessments Rhythms, patterns, and cycles Appropriate chunking or grouping Learning as orchestration rather than lecture or facilitation Appropriate level of novelty Appropriately timed breaks and learning periods Purposeful assessments Learning that addresses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners Active processing with mental models The use of universal examples, analogies, and parallel processing Tompkins offers the following succinct definition of brain-based: “instructional strategies designed for compatibility with the brain’s propensities for seeking, processing, and organizing information.”
