9781845909635: What If Everything You Knew About Education Was Wrong?

Foreword by Robert Bjork. What would you do differently if your most cherished beliefs about education turned out to be wrong? This is a book about teaching but is not a manual on how to teach. It's a book about ideas but is not ideological. It is a book about thinking and questioning and challenging. Much of what we believe about education is unexamined. In iconoclastic style, David Didau scours current thinking on education to expose bad ideas masquerading as common sense before presenting an alternative view on how we might think about teaching. The main thing Didau believes we're wrong about is the belief that we can see learning. Like many other beliefs in education this is so deeply embedded in the way we see the world we don't even think about it: it is a self-evident truth. Pretty much every lesson taught by every teacher in every school depends on the idea that we can see learning happen. But if we're wrong about this, what else might we be wrong about? If it's true that learning is invisible, where does that leave Assessment for Learning, lesson observation and the whole concept of 'outstanding' teaching?Didau suggests an alternative to the quick fix culture so prevalent in schools: making learning deliberately difficult. He considers the perceptual and cognitive illusions that keep us in the dark. And presents an alternative understanding of learning and progress. He also introduces the science of how people really learn and suggests ways to implement this approach in schools. And examines the consequences of shifting our understanding of how learning occurs and discusses some of the mistakes we've made about marking, differentiation, motivation and creativity.

About the Author :

David Didau has run two very successful English departments and been an Assistant Head. His blog, learningspy.co.uk, is a distinctive mix of acerbic wit and thoughtful wisdom and is one of the most influential education blogs in the world.

Review :

David Didau has written a truly remarkable book. No other book that I know of manages to integrate an in-the-trenches classroom-teaching perspective with an accessible coverage of critical findings from cognitive-science research. --Robert A. Bjork, Distinguished Research Professor, UCLA

This is the kind pf book you could read quickly, but probably shouldn't. You could read it ten times and each time find something new. There is a canon of about a dozen books that I recommend to teachers - most of which are cited in this one. My essential reading list now has a new entry. --Robert Coe, Professor of Education, Durham University

Description du livre Crown House Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. If you feel a bit cross at the presumption of some oik daring to suggest everything you know about education might be wrong, please take it with a pinch of salt. What if everything you knew about education was wrong? is just a title. Of course, you probably think a great many things that aren t wrong. The aim of the book is to help you murder your darlings . David Didau will question your most deeply held assumptions about teaching and learning, expose them to the fiery eye of reason and see if they can still walk in a straight line after the experience. It seems reasonable to suggest that only if a theory or approach can withstand the fiercest scrutiny should it be encouraged in classrooms. David makes no apologies for this; why wouldn t you be sceptical of what you re told and what you think you know? As educated professionals, we ought to strive to assemble a more accurate, informed or at least considered understanding of the world around us. Here, David shares with you some tools to help you question your assumptions and assist you in picking through what you believe.He will stew findings from the shiny white laboratories of cognitive psychology, stir in a generous dash of classroom research and serve up a side order of experience and observation. Whether you spit it out or lap it up matters not. If you come out the other end having vigorously and violently disagreed with him, you ll at least have had to think hard about what you believe. The book draws on research from the field of cognitive science to expertly analyse some of the unexamined meta-beliefs in education. In Part 1; Why we re wrong , David dismantles what we think we know; examining cognitive traps and biases, assumptions, gut feelings and the problem of evidence. Part 2 delves deeper - Through the threshold - looking at progress, liminality and threshold concepts, the science of learning, and the difference between novices and experts. In Part 3, David asks us the question What could we do differently? and offers some considered insights into spacing and interleaving, the testing effect, the generation effect, reducing feedback and why difficult is desirable. While Part 4 challenges us to consider What else might we be getting wrong? ; cogitating formative assessment, lesson observation, grit and growth, differentiation, praise, motivation and creativity.
