  • We have called this first session “Learning and Teaching – putting it all together”. We have had several initiatives addressing Learning and Teaching in the school, the last one with Ruth Sutton in May. I shall attempt to “put it all together”.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Learning and Teaching - putting it all together B. Research
    • 2. Goals
      • Review some of the more important ideas regarding Teaching and Learning
      • Have these in mind as the T & L committee present their first draft of Key Principles of Teaching and Learning
      • Provide some ideas to reflect upon
    • 3. Teaching and Learning
      • a reminder of:
      • A. Theories of Learning
      • B. Research
      • C. Practices and Models
    • 4. B. Research
      • 1. The Brain
      • 2. Gender differences
      • 3. Teaching methods and Retention
      • 4. Activity length and Retention
    • 5. B. Research
      • 1. The Brain
    • 6. B. Research: Gender Differences
      • 1. Brain Structure Differences
      • Males higher % of thin cortex material in left hemisphere; females have the same % in each.
      • Most males and females have language processor in left; but females have active language processor in right also.
    • 7. B. Research: Gender Differences
      • 2. Performance Differences
      • Females better : perceptual speed, verbal fluency, sequencing, arithmetic calculations, reading comprehension, recognizing different emotions in others.
      • Males better : spatial tasks, target-directed motor skills, mathematical reasoning, mathematics, science, social studies questions.
    • 8. B. Research: Gender Differences
      • 3. Preference differences
      • Male and female brains organize differently from early in development, leading to different preferences in learning.
      • More girls than boys have left hemisphere preference.
      • (Most schooling favours left hemisphere preferred learners)
    • 9.
      • Average percentage of retention of material after 24 hours for different methods of teaching
      B. Research: Learning Pyramid NTL Institute, Virginia
    • 10.
      • Retention during a learning episode
      B. Research: Retention “ How the Brain Learns”, Sousa, 2001
    • 11.
      • Retention during a learning episode
      B. Research: Retention “ How the Brain Learns”, Sousa, 2001
    • 12. Book in the Library “ How the Brain Learns”, Sousa, 2001
