Transcript of Spaced learning

Overview Results Research Spaced Learning Gross stuff in jars Link to articles (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr (cc) photo by Franco Folini on Flickr (cc) photo by jimmyharris on Flickr (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr Method of presenting a great deal of information in a condensed format Learning content repeated 3 times Learning separated by 2 ten minute "breaks" First input= teacher centered
Second input= student centered
Third input= higher order thinking Success at Monkseaton Led to implementation within my
classroom as presented to a Biology 2 class for action research Based on the "temporal pattern of stimuli for creating long term memories" reported by R. Douglas Fields in "Scientific American" in 2005 Developed and tested by Paul Kelley into a learning method in "Making Minds" (2008) Implementation In Biology 2 I did not adhere to 10 minute time frame for breaks. I felt 4 to 8 minutes was enough for these students Changes to Spaced Learning model Outcomes Assets R. Douglas Fields paper Links doodles photo frame Reflection 2 days to implement lesson information (normally a 4 day lesson) Day one
Ip1=presented information via Prezi
Ip2=three brain break activities
Ip3=students completed outline of lesson with important terms missing cooperatively, then completed outline as a class on smart board
Ip4= short walk outdoors
Ip5= culminating, higher-order questions Day two
Ip1= presented information via prezi
Ip2= Origami crane
Ip3= Students completed outline of lesson with key terms missing cooperatively, then completed outline as a class on smart board
Ip4= listened to "Claire de Lune" while watching relaxing landscape images
Ip5= students correctly assembled various organisms in the appropriate Taxa Students reflected positively on method Difficult to plan Improvement due to repetition Improvement due to novelty 50 question forced answer test 25questions from material taught in a traditional fashion
25 questions from material taught via Spaced Learning Results Students averaged 74 % on traditionally taught material
Students averaged 82% on material taught through Spaced Learning a positive outcome of + 8% comparing spaced learning results to traditional results yield a p=.0682 Numerous issues with validity http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/5166111/Revealed-new-teaching-methods-that-are-producing-dramatic-results.html http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6007908 Notes from the Teacher http://www.monkseaton.org.uk/spaced/Pages/resources.aspx?RootFolder=/spaced/Resources/Spaced%20Learning%20Powerpoints%20%E2%80%93%20Learning%20Futures%20Guide&FolderCTID=&View=%7B58E3C873-F82A-4ED3-8B2E-235F3ACF05AA%7D This has ppt's for subject areas Not a real baby Not a real brain I don't know, but I will do it again!!!
