Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
On June 22, 2021, we will launch updated strategies for the Math PK-2 model, as well as additional updates to the Navigator that highlight equity, SEL, and culturally responsive teaching. To learn more, visit our Site Updates (available in the "About" menu at the top of any page).
Mindfulness is a practice to create internal balance and a sense of being present in the moment. Through short, frequent mindfulness activities, adults can develop their awareness and ability to focus Attention, which can mitigate negative effects of heavy media-multitasking and general cognitive decline. Mindfulness exercises can also enhance academic performance, support adults' Physical Well-being and mental health, and improve Sleep. Self-regulation and Inhibition can be strengthened by practicing mindfulness techniques.
Use It In Your Learning Environment
Instructors can equip learners with mindfulness practices to use as a part of their daily routine and to use them when they are feeling anxious or stressed. Some potential mindfulness activities include physical relaxation techniques, mindful walk-abouts, mindful breathing, active listening exercises, and emotional awareness exercises. These meditative activities can also reduce stress and anxiety in the learning environment or workplace to ultimately support improved performance. Products interested in incorporating mindfulness into their tools could do so through sensory experiences, guided imagery, and movement.
When instructors ask questions or have learners create questions before introducing a text, they activate interest, increase Motivation, and help them assess what they already know about a given topic.
Learning and studying information across multiple sessions that are spaced, or distributed in time, can promote learning and long-term retention of both basic and conceptually complex facts and concepts.
Instruction and training presented in multiple formats allows learners to activate different cognitive skills and Background Knowledge that are necessary to remember procedural and content information.
When instructors are able to provide context, and connect math concepts to an adult learner's world, math can be seen as relevant and applicable to their daily lives and work- a core aspect of adult Numeracy.
