Thing 7b. Google Reader visited
I found this posting by LeAnn Morris about How people learn best, I felt connected with her when she mentioned the ideal conditions for learning to happen, like making connections to prior knowledge, giving time to process and reflect, asking questions, giving time to apply and practice and giving reinforcement for success. But in the real world, we are faced with standardized testing which gives us few time to really give the students the time to have a whole learning experience. Are this tests really helping to create life long learners? or just score-driven learners.
