Abstract

We know how to improve retention, assimilation, and connected learning, yet these strategies are rarely used in classrooms.

Extended Abstract

Brain science shows us that how we typically use PowerPoint stinks. It suggests that for some, learning should not happen before 10am while for others, learning should conclude before noon. Cognitive research proves that listening to a lecture is the brain-equivalent of watching televised fishing.

We know more about the brain and about learning than ever before in our history. While what we do know about the brain is still relatively little, it is significant that so little cognitive science makes its way into the classroom. At the same time the skills, aptitudes, and abilities to critically think and problem solve have shifted dramatically in the past several decades, yet these paradigm shifts are also absent from many teaching and learning experiences. (Never before has a catch phrase been interjected into educational mission statements around the world with so little understanding of what it means as, "21st Century Learning.") From competency based models to gamification to retention devices, this session hopes to change these trends.

This highly interactive session will "Do, Show, Tell, Review, and Ask" as participants engage in pattern recognition, craft problems prior to solving them, collaborate in real-time to promote social learning, and employ other, immediately usable techniques for the classroom. This presentation will focus on ways to create multi-nodal and multi-modal connections based on effective practices from practitioners around the globe, all of which could be categorized as Education 3.0. Participants will be shown many examples of web assets and learning experiences (both in-person and eLearning) that promote social learning, transformative learning, game based learning, and learning based on cognitive science. The audience will see and hear about how to create better (more authentic) MOOCs, simulation, curriculum integration events, authentic assessment, and problem based learning experiences within an eLearning framework. Be sure to bring your devices as the session will encourage feedback, web-based experiences, and interaction. Finally, participants will leave this presentation with multiple resources (learning games, web tools, apps, illustrations, etc) and opportunities for application immediately from this seasoned presenter.

Dr. Jeff Borden, Director of the Center for eLearning (part of the Research & Innovation Network) will unpack what neo-millennial learning and assessment can and should be, as well as a few old policies and procedures, embedded deeply in the educational DNA that need to go. From game changers based on cognitive science to best practices found in education psychology and support for it all through technology platforms and frameworks, attendees will have a better understanding of how to make tomorrow's learning start happening today as we build Education 3.0.
