You’d think the answer is obvious, just as movie theaters are in the movie business. Wrong. Theaters are in the popcorn and fast food business. That’s where the profit is. Movies bring in the customers to buy these products. As with theaters, if you teach, you’re not in the teaching or education business. You’re in the learning business.
From a students’ view, they start school expecting to learn something. Their view means that teachers start lesson planning by applying what the most informed people know about how people learn. That means teachers must know what people learn first, second, etc. This view opens additional channels of learning aides that teachers can arrange in lessons to meet learners’ expectations.
Teachers with behavioral science research grounding can demonstrate this learning sequence in lessons. aLEAP provides prompts for them and a map for those unfamiliar with behavioral research descriptions of how people learn.
I wonder what percentage of teachers can describe precisely how people learn?
