Building Student Confidence in Learning

I thought this was an interesting blog written by a teacher to help students gain confidence when they are learning new material.  Some of his suggestions such a a "brain dump"  helps student demonstrate what they've learned and can then can be used as a guide to studying.  Take a look at his suggestions.http://www.edutopia.org/blog/4-tips-build-student-confidence-matt-levinsonSee More

New Insight into How Children Learn Math

I've posted other articles about how gestures help children learn math, but the latest study from University of Chicago researchers showed some new insights into how children learn a set of given problems most effectively.  A study with almost 100 children showed that gesturing as well as generalizing was the most effective way for children to learn a series of problems presented. One of the researchers stated "What's surprising about our study is that we showed that actually gesture which is a…See More

About The Educator Network

The Educator Network is one of the networks of the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center. This network is designed to join educators and TDLC scientists in conversations about teaching and learning especially as it relates to timing. What mechanisms determine the time course of learning itself and what general principles explain the dynamics of learning across multiple scales and domains. You are invited to submit questions, start discussions, or react to articles. Please feel free to include videos, pictures and links to other research articles.  If you have a good idea, we'd love to hear it.  The scientists at The Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center want to hear from educators.  Likewise, we hope educators will benefit from learning about current research and the translation of that research to the classroom. If you want to start a discussion please use the Forum button.  You can reply to the topic by clicking on the topic title.  There is also a BLOG section if you would just like to ask a question or comment on an issue of interest.

Emotient and the TDLC All Hands Meeting

Posted by Alec Barron on February 9, 2014 at 8:38am 6 Comments

I loved the talks yesterday at the TDLC meeting.  After hearing about emotient again, I had several thoughts:

1) I'm curious how the software compares to experienced teachers.  Can emotient beat out the perceptions of teachers?  I’ve always felt that over time, I’ve improved at inferring what the facial expressions of my scholars are.  I’m curious how effective I am at doing this in either a whole class, small group, or a one-on-one setting.  If I’m not as good as…

Just how bad are high schools here?

Posted by Charles Elkan on June 9, 2012 at 9:10am 4 Comments

No one commented on my recent more highbrow post, so here is a lowbrow one. When I read about the valedictorians etc. of a local high school, I am usually impressed by the poor training they have received. This is a typical example. Mira Mesa high school is considered one of the better ones in San Diego. Here is its student newspaper article about where graduates are going to college: …
