BOOK

Bransford, J. D., Haynes, A. F., Stein, B. S., & Lin, X.D. (1998).  The IDEAL Workplace: Strategies for Improving Learning, Problem Solving, and Creativity.  NashvilleREAD, Nashville, TN.

Dr. Lin studies metacognition and problem solving, and the ways that cultural interactions with the help of technology can facilitate domain subject learning and personal reflection. She develops technology-rich learning environments and explores how such environments influence cross-cultural collaboration and reflection. She finds that technologies make it possible for teachers and students from different cultures to collaborate in fundamentally new ways. This offers exciting opportunities for metacognitive awareness. Her most recent research explores the creation of 3D Virtual Learning Environments that permit teachers from different cultures to collaborate. She hopes that these studies will lead to design principles that can transform the obstacles of geographical and cultural distance into new opportunities for learning.

Diversity Is the Theme at AERA

It’s the world’s foremost gathering of education researchers (12,000 from 53 countries), and its theme this year was “Demography and Democracy in the Era of Accountability.” So it’s not surprising that the 2005 annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), held in Montreal in early April, drew more than 162 presenters, panel participants and session chairs from Teachers College alone.

Learning From The Rest Of The World

It's a truly global classroom out there. Time for the United States to pull up a chair. It's called "learner-centered pedagogy," and since the 1970s it has been popular with some funders of education reform. Empower a group of students to work together on a project or report, the thinking goes, and they'll raise questions and own the work in ways that plain old didactic instruction could never produce.
