5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn Helping students learn how to learn: That’s what most educators strive for, and that’s the goal of inquiry learning. That skill transfers to other academic subject areas and even to the workplace where employers have consistently said that they want creative, innovative and adaptive thinkers. Inquiry learning is an integrated approach that includes kinds of learning: content, literacy, information literacy, learning how to learn, and social or collaborative skills. Students think about the choices they make throughout the process and the way they feel as they learn.

Visual learning and outlining in the classroom Visual thinking is a learning style where the learner better understands and retains information when ideas, words and concepts are associated with images. Research tells us that the majority of students in a regular classroom need to see information in order to learn it. Some common visual learning strategies include creating graphic organizers, diagramming, mind mapping, outlining and more. Visual learning helps students clarify their thoughts Students see how ideas are connected and realize how information can be grouped and organized.

Adaptive learning: The best approaches we've seen so far There is perhaps no hotter segment in ed tech right now than adaptive learning, which adjusts the learning experience based on a student's progress. It becomes more difficult if they're progressing well, and slows down if they need further instruction. The technology has even attracted funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which assembled a diverse coalition of colleges ranging from the University of Texas at Austin to the Kentucky Community and Technical College System. It isn't just colleges, either—adaptive learning is benefiting K-12, as well. What is Mindset Every so often a truly groundbreaking idea comes along. This is one.

24 Top Tools for Online Teaching What are your top tools for learning? The Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies collects responses to this question from learning professionals every year. The result is a list of “Top 100 Tools for Learning,” which runs the gamut from Adobe to Zite. Last month, I posed a modified version of the question during an Inside Online Learning chat (#IOLchat): “What are your top eLearning tools for teaching?” The Biggest Lie Students Tell Me (and How to Turn It Around) It's easy to say that students lie to teachers all the time. Frankly, everyone, including teachers, has a lie in them, and these untruths keep the schooling process rolling along. When adults say, for instance, that they develop rules with the students, chances are that students often develop rules that teachers already thought of anyway. Or, when adults say that a student can't use the restroom during certain parts of the day "Just because," rather than "Because the hallways is crowded, and I don't want you distracted from the lesson in the classroom,” that's just one more micro-fib in a collage of fibs that we tell children. But my push today is to talk about the lies that students tell, specifically the ones that keep them from growing into the best students possible. "I Can't Do This!"
