I stumbled onto this website via the Virtual Learning Network (VLN). It is fantastic! It provides a variety of readings that looks into a wide variety of interventions/teaching techniques and their impact.
I have provided links to 4 here that I would like everyone to read and make comment on.
Essentially what you see below is that, done effectively, feedback can accelerate progress and achievement by 8 months when compared to "normal" or traditional approaches.
Interesting to see that the physical environment has 0 months. I believe this is due to limited research because of how recent many of these environments are and also the fact that as we are learning, the environment doesn't accelerate progress on its own, what we do inside that environment has the greatest impact. The environment however makes many things possible e.g. collaboration.
Feedback + 8 months
Meta cognition- Self regulated learning + 8 months
Collaborative learning + 5 months
Digital technology + 4 months
Physical environment + 0 months
