    Classroom Management Strategies To Take Control Of Noisy Students


    Get the rest of the videos -

    This video explains a little-used, often-forgotten but very effective classroom management strategy for taking control of really tough groups of students right at the start of lessons. This Classroom Management method is for really challenging, noisy groups that take ages to settle, cost you a lot of time and cause you a lot of stress and frustration.

    You'll learn WHY some noisy groups of students take longer than others to settle down and HOW to get them in a state where they are more likely to stop talking and listen to you so that they enter your classroom on YOUR terms.

    Education For Whom and For What?


    Noam Chomsky, a world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist, spoke at the University of Arizona on Feb. 8, 2012. His lecture, Education: For Whom and For What? featured a talk on the state of higher education, followed by a question-and-answer session.

    Chomsky, an Institute Professor and a Professor Emeritus of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he worked for more than 50 years, has been concerned with a range of education-related issues in recent years. Among them: How do we characterize the contemporary state of the American education system? What happens to the quality of education when public universities become more privatized? Are public universities in danger of being converted into facilities that produce graduates-as-commodities for the job market? What is the role of activism in education? With unprecedented tuition increases and budget struggles occurring across American campuses, these are questions that are more relevant than ever.

    Empowering the Language Learner | The New School


    In this event sponsored by the English Language Studies Department at The New School for General Studies ( and Oxford University Press ESL education specialist Diane Larsen-Freeman traces the evolution of language teaching methods over the past 60 years, discussing how each evolutionary phase has contributed to a more whole-person view of language learners. Larsen-Freeman suggests that when educators treat language as a closed, static system, they create a critical barrier to student empowerment. When language is instead seen as the complex, dynamic system, teachers are able to help their students transform their linguistic world, not merely conform to it. Larsen-Freeman illustrates how this shift in understanding has implications for what and how teachers teach.

    Dr. Diane Larsen-Freeman is a professor of education and director of the English Language Institute at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She is also Distinguished Senior Faculty Fellow at the School for International Training in Brattleboro, Vermont. She has spoken and published widely on the topics of teacher education, second language acquisition, English grammar, and language teaching methodology. In 1997, Dr. Larsen-Freeman was inducted into the Vermont Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 1999, she was named an ESL pioneers by ESL Magazine. In 2000, she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Heinle & Heinle Publishers.


    * Location: Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall, 55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor. Saturday, February 26, 2011 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

    Is American Education Coming Apart? A Lunchtime Lecture with Charles Murray - June 26, 2012


    For all the talk of gaps in achievement, opportunity, and funding between ethnic and racial groups in American education, a different divide may also be splitting our schools and our future. In his acclaimed and controversial recent book, Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010, scholar/pundit/provocateur Charles Murray describes a widening class schism. On Tuesday, June 26, he will deliver a lecture on what that divide means for U.S. schools and education policy.

    What does it portend for student achievement? For diversity within schools and choices among them? Is our education system equipped to serve a society separated by social class?

    20. The Good Life: Happiness

    Cambridge: Undergraduate Sample Lecture: Psychology of Education


    This short lecture explores some of the research findings from cognitive psychology that could have an impact on educational practices. In the first part of the lecture, we complete part of a classic study (Bransford & Johnson, 1972) looking what factors might help us remember. The results of this study indicated that having meaningful personal experiences before learning about something new helps us remember that something new much better than without those experiences. Further, those experiences need to be relevant for the information that we are about to remember. As a result of this work, Schwartz & Bransford (1998) recommended that there is 'a time for telling' meaning that lectures are only useful when they come after meaningful and relevant experiences. In the second part of the lecture we talked about a recent review paper by Dunlosky et al. (2013) that looked at a large number of different types of experiments in different learning contexts to evaluate whether certain types of revision techniques are useful. They report that some very popular techniques do not actually help with learning. We concluded the lecture with a discussion of these techniques.

    Public Lecture on Early childhood Education: Why use a play-based approach to learning?


    Early Childhood Education has attracted interest worldwide in recent decades and more recently, it has attracted much interest in Singapore. This has been primarily due to recent studies on brain development such as those of McCain, Mustard, & Shanker (2007) from Canada along with research from the United States showing the long term positive effects of high quality pre-school.

    However, such studies have also emphasized the quality of early learning, emphasizing that learning experiences are optimised when they are play-based, hands-on, authentic, real-life and are related to the child's social context, unhurried, consider all areas of a child's developmental and are supported by teachers, peers, parents and others.

    This lecture and workshop discusses why play-based learning is important and some hands on activities to assist parents and teachers in understanding this approach.
