5 Things We Need to Get Right As we Move Back to In Person Learning

As we consider how we move back into school, we need to think about neuroscience research about how students learn. Dr. Jared Cooney Horvath talks about stress, learning duration, homework, spaced repetition, and sleep as well as computers and technology. You can't just have a longer school day to improve learning. You also can't always expect every technology to improve learning either.

  1. Hi Vicki, any chance of getting transcripts of your podcasts? My wife, who is a teacher, and is deaf, along with many of her colleagues who are also deaf are missing out on the insights that they could receive if they had access to your podcasts. If I remember correctly, a while back, you did have transcripts. Thank you for sharing your expertise and experiences with us, much appreciated.

    • Hi Richard – I paid for transcripts for the first 500 episodes and they just weren’t accessed. So, what I’ve done recently is if people ask for a particular episode, then I’ll go pay for someone to transcribe it. It was pretty expensive to make sure it was accurate and no one was using them so it felt like an expense that wasn’t necessary at the time. I’m always willing to reevaluate, though. If there’s a particular episode, I can work to get it done.

  2. I one hundred percent agree with this blog when the author states that you cannot just lengthen the time of the class in order to improve learning. Thinking about what would realistically happen if a teacher did this, by the end of that class that class any teacher would have a very difficult time keeping anybody’s attention. Most adults do not even like to sit and listen to someone speak for a longer amount of time, so how can we expect a student to stay engaged in a lesson for longer? Feel free to disagree with me, but that is just my opinion.
