We learn by teaching

Learning with e's

Although I am employed to teach, I consider it something of a disappointment if I don't learn something myself during my teaching sessions. Some might complain that 'only the expert has a right to teach', or that 'students should not be allowed to go off and find out for themselves', but sadly, this is really missing the point. If you want them to learn, get them to teach.

Teaching artistry

Learning with e's

Passing colleagues were a little surprised to see me teaching in the art room, completely out of context. Normally I'm found teaching a session on educational theory or psychology, or information and communication technologies. Teaching an art lesson is therefore a little outside my comfort zone.

Ruth Clark Claims “Games Don’t Teach”

Experiencing eLearning

Ruth Clark posted at ASTD an article titled “ Why Games Don’t Teach.” Let’s look at her summary of the research: The goal of the research was to compare learning efficiency and effectiveness from a narrative game to a slide presentation of the content. Students who played the Crystal Island game learned less and rated the lesson more difficult than students who viewed a slide presentation without any game narrative or hands on activities. They were entertaining and distracting ways of presenting information for a test. Adams, D.M., Mayer, R.E.,

There is a disconnect between teaching and learning. We are at the mercy of the curriculum of our time, and also the whims of the teaching staff who were in charge of our education.

We Teach as We are Taught

Kapp Notes

As Knowles (1992) indicates, formative experiences of pre-service and beginning teachers influence the ways in which they think about teaching and, subsequently their actions in the classroom. Teachers and professors (who often don't have formal instruction on how to teach) teach in ways similar to how they experienced teaching during their own schooling and hold beliefs based on those experiences (Borko & Putnam, 1996; Thompson, 1992). Instructors tend to teach in the same style and format in which they have been taught. Learning to teach. 1996).

Provide a problem-set that experts need to work through and present information outside the schema to reveal gaps in the experts ability. References. [1] 1] Clark, R., Nguyen, F. &
