Beyond Cognitive Increase: Investigating the Influence of Computer Programming on Perception and Application of Mathematical skills

Other studies have shown that the study of Logo hasincreased students’ algebraic reasoning (Clement, Lochhead, & Soloway, 1980), meta-cognitiveabilities (Clements & Nastasi, 1988; Clements & Gullo, 1984), problem-solving ability (Subhi,1999), and general geometry abilities (Clements, 2002).The relationship between mathematics and computer programming has also beenexamined from the other direction—prior background in mathematics has been shown to be asignificant variable in the retention of students in introductory computer programming courses(Konvalina, Wileman, & Stephens, 1983).

Furthermore, those who perform well in programming courses tend to be those with strong scores in mathematics (Bergin & Reilly,2006). 1.2 Shortcomings of Computer Programming + Mathematics Studies why Mindstorms. Teaching students how to learn. It's no secret that students learn best when they self-regulate--set their own academic goals, develop strategies to meet them and reflect on their academic performance.

Teaching students how to learn

High-achieving students know what needs to be learned and how to learn it, educational psychology studies increasingly show. But while making those kinds of self-assessments may sound simple--and something most college students could do--many psychology professors find their students aren't self-aware enough to conduct them. Some faculty believe they can help students develop these strategies through their teaching. Teaching Students Study Skills/How to Learn. Introduction Learning how to read and study are the keys to college success.

Teaching Students Study Skills/How to Learn

The first section of this page is for faculty, describing methods they can use in classes to help students learn course material. The second section will provide students with tips and strategies for effective reading, studying, and test taking. Instructors can put these links on their syllabi or refer students to them as needed. Strategies for Faculty "Teaching Students How to Learn," Bridget Murray ,Monitor on Psychology, Vol. 31, No. 6, June 2000.This article contains methods instructors can use to teach students to take charge of their learning and self-regulate. "Best tools and practices for concept mapping" by Chris Clark (University of Notre Dame, Kaneb Center).Introduction to terms and uses for concept maps/mind maps, a teaching-learning strategy that entails building a visual representation or visual organizer to assist learning or show what has been learned.

The Six Leadership Styles (Goleman) - Comindwork Weekly - 2013-Aug-12

Every style consists of specific methods and is ideally applicable only in certain situations: Commanding - demands immediate compliance ("Do what I tell you"). To use: in a crisis, to kick start a turnaround, or with problem employees. Visionary - mobilizes people toward a vision ("Come with me"). To use: when changes require a new vision, or when a clear direction is needed. Affiliative - creates harmony and builds emotional bonds ("People come first"). 5. Theme C: School leaders as lead learners. The importance of the principal’s strategic leadership of learning was arguably the strongest theme to emerge from both rounds of fieldwork and so the various dimensions of this theme are elaborated in considerable detail.

5. Theme C: School leaders as lead learners

While some of the matters raised have already been signalled in Theme B, the focus here is on implications for leading and sustaining change. Effective principals model being a leading learner Across the cases, principals and other school leaders concurred that active, hands-on involvement is critical to successful and sustained curriculum innovation. They appreciated that their leadership had influenced teachers’ willingness to make the necessary long-term personal commitment to their own professional learning and that it provided a catalyst for change in staff expectations of professional development. Teachers found enthusiastic modelling of a focus on personal professional learning was motivating: Effective principals work to develop distributed leadership. Sign In.
