The hidden audience effect

It must have been a very long day for the kids, but they performed very well, and were very entertaining and raised a few laughs too. In effect, S'cool Radio is taking a similar approach to Dave Mitchell's Quadblogging concept but developing it in another direction. What both projects have in common is their capitalisation on the 'hidden audience' effect. Performance levels are raised as extra effort is made.

The labelling game

An interesting psychological study by Rosenthal and Jacobson back in the 1960s showed the problems and benefits that can occur in education when we label children. The Pygmalion effect , as it''s known can be beneficial. If teachers ascribe great expectations onto their students, those students tend to perform better as a result.

Identity in a digital age

Learning with e's

Much of my understanding of digital identity was founded in my studies into personal identity, whilst a student of social psychology. The work of William James and George Herbert Mead influenced my thinking, as did the study of sociologist Charles Cooley into 'the Looking Glass Self.' Goffman saw social interaction as a drama performance, in which the actor's behaviour was framed by front stage and back stage roles, scripts, props and costumes.

My most recent post featured locus of control theory, and today's post is about the Pygmalion Effect in education. The theory Robert Rosethal and Leonora Jacobson conducted studies in American schools during the 1960s focused on the effect teachers can have on the learning performances of children. This effect is commonly known in education as the ' Pygmalion effect ' but is more accurately referred to as the 'observer-expectancy effect'.

I Believe that Learning is Inherently Social

Tom Spiglanin

We may follow a manual to effect a repair we’ve never attempted before. Learning by experience can be quite effective. ” But while effective, it isn’t terribly efficient on its own. Learning alone may be effective, but very inefficient. When professors finished their lectures, the real learning began in study groups and teaching assistants’ office hours. It’s efficient in some ways, but it’s not effective.

Myriad studies have shown the advantage of hands-on training compared to lecture-based training. Instead, find ways to more effectively engage your audience by delivering the right training to the right employees at the right time.

What is authentic assessment?

Learning with 'e's

I acknowledge that there are attempts to introduce new modes of assessment that draw on long-term development of knowledge and skills (project work), and team work (peer and collaborative work), as well as presentational skills (performance work), but essentially, high stakes testing (the one that really counts towards a 'grade') is still very much the preserve of the exam or essay. These have their uses, but there is much more available in the assessment repertoire of effective teachers.

Why Blended Learning Is Really Just Blended Training

Mindflash

But that has nothing to do with learning and performance effectiveness, only money. Webster’s defines learning as the “act or experience of one that learns; knowledge of skill acquired by instruction or study; modification of a behavioral tendency by experience.” It’s learning by actually performing. I believe most of the work of trainers falls in the middle section, “knowledge of skill acquired by instruction or study.”

Standard deviation

Distractions in the workplace are common. First there is the social impact: Communication technology may create a psychological distance between people; it can have detrimental effects on our concentration. Studies have shown that greater dialogue can lessen the psychological distance between people, but psychological distance may increase with colocated colleagues and friends when devices distract us.

Social Learning is a term that is rapidly spreading throughout the learning and performance field.

If you subscribe to a kind of pedagogy where you believe that facilitating learning is more effective than direct instruction, you will probably recognise the potential.
