Yes, I know that my blog is a mess. For months now I've been using it as a place to store things that I am interested in re-visiting and if I re-visit them I don't really do it on my blog. I usually use Evernote instead because it's not public. Is it time for me to re-think my blog ideas and do some cleaning here? Yes, I would like to be able to invite people in and this would be a good place to do it.

Wydea - Science and Technology

Well, if this video would play I would think that this would be good to share with my Walden students.  I think something is off with YouTube, this morning since I can't play the video from Sir Ken Robinson's address to ISTE 12 either.

Share these neuromyths in week 2 of my walden class.  I like the way they made it like a quiz and then provided answers.  I like that way of learning.

Did you know that learning is not the same as perceiving and presenting instruction in the learners most favored learning style is actually counter productive? An individual may process information through many different modes in order to comprehend a concept or master a task.

the input of the senses has no meaning itself. For understanding and learning, a further step, a step beyond perception is necessary. The learner needs to interpret the input of his senses and give this input a meaning. Only by this second step, through endeavouring to find a meaning, understanding and learning of the formula is achieved. This second step is an intellectual achievement. Hence, the “intellectual type of learner” is a consequence to the other “types of learner”. First, students need to perceive, then they process the perception and learn what the perception means. Considering this process, one can conclude that strategies to optimize learning must include an approach of “learning through understanding”.
