If you don't have time to assess a paper's methodology, is there educational equivalent to a cochrane review or NHS choices? #SciTeachJC

@ I know but they are probably still dining out on their 'research' years later as evidence that it works #SciTeachJC

@ part of the problem (she said) was that the DfE(s) always jumped the gun, (i.e. when things were in pilot) #sciteachjc

#SciTeachJC I always use a variety of teaching styles to exercise different cognitive processes - no good focusing on one whatever the child

#SciTeachJC Slightly getting off point but common denominator to all these 'good research bad implentation' strategies is politics!

@ #sciteachJC And that's the way it should be. Vary teaching style. But kids not fixed (or even linked) to a learning style.
@DrDav
Carol Davenport

#SciTeachJC@ I agree. With a classroom of different learners you have to teach to all of them
@jennjtaylor

@ #sciteachjc That sounds good! Can you say a little more? 'Cochrane review' for instance?

@ probably how VAK shd be used. Variety of lrning activities, different styles, to maintain engagement if nothing else #sciteachjc

Do I detect a large dose of scepticism from @ about the value of educational research? #SciTeachJC

I had problems convincing staff that the Mozart Effect was bunk, imagine if I talked about VAK? #SciTeachJC

@ #sciteachJC Ah yes, politics. And sadly, we haven't got a chance of that being evidence based.

@ #SciTeachJC great point. A learner may be engaged by an activity different from their ideal learning style.

@ if indeed they have an ideal learning style to begin with 😉 #sciteachjc

offtopic: anyone else think idea of 'types' of ppl similar to expressed in SF - thinking Monica Hughes (old), Divergent (recent) #SciTeachJC


@ #SciTeachJC ...that is to your comment about not fixing pupils to a particular style

@ @ #sciteachjc it's now fallen by the wayside & we only do it if there is a specific task that is linked to it

@ Doesn't "Vorderman" report suggest giving power over the Maths curriculum to people who know what they are talking about? #sciteachjc

@ @ Is part of problem with getting ideas like this tested properly in sch, that it is pot. unethical? #sciteachjc
@A_Weatherall

@ Unethical in what way? #SciTeachJC
@SciTeachJC

@ @ so you're now doing it as it was intended to be done (occasionally as appropriate) #sciteachjc #app

@ @ #sciteachjc You would teach them anyway, so not unethical - don't know what works. But difficult to do control

@ #sciteachjc it's fundamental. You _can't_ perform studies you think will make students worse off. They're not electrons.
@gwiff

@ #SciTeachJC the thing is, like medical treatments, the diff methods *are* being used - just not in research.

#SciTeachJC Parents do not react well if dear little Johnny is being 'experimented on'

@ @ #sciteachjc hopefully! although we were initially told that all work had to be marked according to the levels
