Covid19 en onderwijs – Het is erg genoeg: Morele paniek hebben wij echt niet nodig

Hoewel het waarschijnlijk niet echt politiek correct is op dit moment, toch wil ik iets kwijt. Maar niet voordat ik het volgende zeg: Ja, de huidige situatie is zeer vervelend en het is gewoon waardeloos dat wij allemaal thuis moeten blijven en elkaar – vrienden, familie, (groot)ouders, collegae, enzovoorts – niet kunnen zien in levende …

Bringing More of a Classroom Feel to Distance Learning

Apparently wonders never cease. The website Edutopia from George Lucas is well-known for farfetched, absurd, and downright wrong and harmful articles about teaching and education, but today I found something really useful there.

Some poor fool, thinking either that he was being funny OR that he was being really profound posted how he used a ‘problem’ that his daughter had as a ‘teaching moment’.

Generatief Leren: Wat Werkt en Voor Wie?

Hier een uitgebreide versie van mijn column en blog in het decembernummer van Didactief. Logan Fiorella en Richard Mayer schreven een artikel (2016) over generatieve leerstrategieën. Een generatieve leerstrategie vraagt leerlingen actief de leerstof te reorganiseren en integreren met hun voorkennis. Het gaat om activiteiten die leerlingen ertoe aanzetten iets zinvols te produceren dat verder …

Pupils can learn more effectively through stories than activities

You often hear that active ‘doing’ (pupil-centred) is better than ‘telling’ (teacher-centred) and that this is even more important and more ‘true’ when it comes to younger children. Unfortunately, this new study at the University of Bath shows that storytelling — the oldest form of teaching — is the most effective way of teaching primary …
