How Are Online Learning Strategies For Auditory Learners Different To Those In Real Life?
At least one new study points to the fact that it takes four times as much individual effort to give a quiet review of anything in the digital realm than in a normal classroom.
A review of the scientific literature by the Australian Academy of Science explored the effects of technologies like audio and visual aids on cognition, and it revealed that there are multiple, critical lessons to be learned from these efforts.
In today’s digital age, learning is as much an on-going pursuit as it is a periodic accretion of facts. Learning implies that the learner should engage with some manner of auditory or visual aids in order to understand a lesson in a certain context.
As for the reading, writing, and arithmetic that most schools have considered a primary tenet of education, teaching audio courses and having students listen to taped lectures allows students to review the material more quickly and could be handy for students with short attention spans and poor comprehension skills. For students with sight impairments, the auditory aids could help to reinforce learning.
Before we move forward, a little background information might be useful.
Colores words are words that have more of their letter forms in the word than other letters. African American and Hispanic Colors are words that have more letters in the word than other letters. Though there is a lot of variation in the word, several versions of the word make up the noun colores. As an aside, those with hearing impairments could be helped by having to listen to tape of those sounds they have difficulty hearing, as could students without sight impairment.
Internet Search Engines like Google are hardly new. Google has been around a long time, and its Google Places allows people to search for businesses using pictures of the product from its own website. It took some time, but by now most business owners are familiar with using Google to market their businesses, either through Google Places or another, traditional site.
Computer Apps like Amazon Go Are Awesomely Simple
By now it should be clear that the various libraries, museums, schools, and other institutions of learning rely more and more on digital tools and techniques to teach students. What makes this emerging trend especially fascinating is that it’s now being mediated. This means that after each course and test session, students can access and then share their work. This is a revolution in how students learn.
Back when it was once the case that people simply searched for information online on their own, they relied on independent agents. This was the norm, but more and more now learners depend upon self-starters to help them learn. The new hybridized education emphasizes trust in the capacity of learners to access and curate information.
Video Analysis In The Real World: While Your Memory Can Survive Stress, Content Not So Much
Ten years ago, when I attended a lecture about the relation between perception and memory, the speaker was a young researcher. She sat at the front of the room, simply listening to the subject. The focus of her attention was mainly on what the speaker was talking about, and it never occurred to her that what she was listening to might not be of the highest quality.
Now, ten years later, I attend lectures that are recorded, usually by students, then released to be replayed at a later date on-demand. I find that often when my students videotape lecture content and upload the resulting video to a school’s website, there is major editing done to make the material look good in the least bit. I have to admit that I sometimes wonder if the value of what’s presented has been diluted and that it’s sometimes easy to misunderstand the lecturer and hear something that wasn’t said.
The fact that this technology has come about at all is remarkable. Ten years ago, I don’t think that many teachers would have been aware of how the lecture recording process could be beneficial to learners. Now, teachers are using the technology on a regular basis as an adjunct to their teaching method, and it is important to remember that it does not replace face-to-face contact.
