Learning at Scale Slides from ICTCM

Learning at Scale: Using Research To Improve Learning Practices and Technology for Teaching Math In the last 5 years, there has been a rise in what we might call “large-scale digital learning experiments.” ┬áThese take the form of centralized courses, vendor-created courseware, online homework systems, MOOCs, and free-range learning platforms. If we mine the research, successes, and failures coming out of these experiments, what can we discover about designing better digital learning experiences and technology for the learning of mathematics?

Unraveling the Mysteries of the Emerging Adult Brain

Diana Hestwood has been learning about the emerging adult brain (translation: the brains of our college students) for years. She sent me the latest version of her presentation (which she calls the “condensed” version, which was presented to the Project ACCESS fellows at AMATYC last month. If you’ve never seen one of Diana’s presentations, it’s worth a look. Actually, even if you have seen the presentations, it’s always good to get a refresher. If nothing else, it might reduce your frustration level with freshmen college students.

How your Brain Learns and Remembers

This is a wonderful presentation designed by Diana Hestwood and Linda Russell (of Minneapolis Community & Technical College). After last year’s presentation about “the emerging adult brain” I asked Diana if there was an existing presentation that we could use to explain the brain science to students when we go back to our classrooms. This year, Diana held a workshop to help us implement the teaching of brain science in the classroom, and part of that was this PowerPoint presentation. Because Diana wants this presentation to be used in classrooms, I am posting three versions of this file: the...
