Como les contamos en el post previo, para poder comprender cómo funciona nuestra mente y qué nos hace ÚNICOS, los alumnos de Y6 de Punta Chica comenzaron a estudiar el cerebro y las áreas implicadas en el aprendizaje. Para ésto una de las actividades fue realizar en equipo un cerebro con masa y agregarle las referencias. We had FUN!
Effective Teaching Strategies
|10 Effective DAP Teaching Strategies|
|An effective teacher or family child care provider chooses a strategy to fit a particular situation. It’s important to consider what the children already know and can do and the learning goals for the specific situation. By remaining flexible and observant, we can determine which strategy may be most effective. Often, if one strategy doesn’t work, another will.
Research provides more and more evidence of the positive effects that well-developed play has on various areas of child development, such as children´s social skills, emerging mathematical ability, early literacy concepts and self regulation.
One of the things I really took away from coursework in educational psychology is that students’ motivation to learn can be inhibited by all kinds of factors, such as their beliefs about intelligence (“I’m just not good at math” whereas what’s really true is “If I work hard I can figure this out”). This chart that’s been going around Twitter offers some really great suggestions for changing the way students talk to themselves in ways that are not just in accordance with the research on the best conditions for learning, but will encourage them to be kinder to themselves, too.
It strikes me that pretty much any of these things can be explicitly incorporated into information literacy instruction at the college level as a way to promote student success and realistic expectations about how to do research.
