Comment on What is Long-Term Memory? by Cathy Bogart //www.chendaifu.com/edupedia/content/what-is-long-term-memory/#comment-22 Cathy Bogart Mon, 16 Jul 2018 21:27:49 +0000 //www.chendaifu.com/edupedia/?post_type=content&p=28417#comment-22 LTM is made up of 3 different types of memory - (1)semantic, which is memory for facts and information ("we have neurotransmitters in our brains, such as serotonin and dopamine") (2) episodic, which is autobiographical (your 21st birthday) and (3) procedural, which is motor memory (riding a bike). Remembering LTM memories is a reconstructive process. We are not passive recorders of information. Instead, we recreate a memory every time it is remembered. This explains why we can share an experience with someone else, but remember it quite differently. We not only remember the event, but our interpretation of it. This includes the context, as well as the feelings you experienced at the time. It is likely that these other factors are not even part of your conscious experience.

Comment on What is Curriculum Mapping? by Ann Taylor //www.chendaifu.com/edupedia/content/what-is-curriculum-mapping/#comment-21 Ann Taylor Sat, 14 Jul 2018 15:42:00 +0000 //www.chendaifu.com/edupedia/?post_type=content&p=27029#comment-21 My school district has been curriculum mapping for years. We now have developed pacing guides that we use as a diary map. It is a great way to see the entire year and plan accordingly. I use both to develop my weekly lesson plans. We also put in our assessments.

Comment on What is the Flipped Classroom? by Dr. Patricia Porter //www.chendaifu.com/edupedia/content/what-is-the-flipped-classroom/#comment-19 Dr. Patricia Porter Fri, 06 Jul 2018 20:11:29 +0000 //www.chendaifu.com/edupedia/?post_type=content&p=26240#comment-19 But flipped classrooms only work when kids know how to learn. Teachers - and parents - should be spending their time helping children develop the skills they need to be able to learn and to adapt what they are learning to how they learn best. This is not difficult to do but it does take knowledge and an awareness to put priorities on learning rather than teaching. Technology is helping kick start this process and that is great- but we still have a long way to go. The sooner we prioritize learning over teaching the better.
