  • Bad Science by Ben Goldacre, reviewed by Roger Greenaway
    for us by putting Brain Gym and Fish Oil under the microscope Goldacre can find no reason to recommend either intervention But we do not need to rely on a medic to examine educational research on our behalf Professor John Hattie has sifted through 500 research reviews or meta studies of teaching methods from around the world His summary of findings from effective control group research is presented in a top twenty list of the teaching methods which have the greatest effect on achievement feedback comes top His analysis included 253 of the most rigorous studies on active learning His findings show that students in the experimental group perform on average a grade and a half better than if they had been placed in the control group Active Learning adds a grade and a half to achievement Professor John Hattie s study is referenced below You will not find it referred to in Bad Science but I am mentioning it here because it demonstrates how respectable control group studies have demonstrated substantial benefits of active learning Unsurprisingly Brain Gym and Fish Oil do not appear in Hattie s list of top teaching strategies To be included teaching strategies need to have had control group studies published in a peer reviewed journal The consequences of continuing to use strategies that are discredited is that even if they are harmless and ineffective they will be diverting time and resources from the development of more successful strategies This is one of Goldacres s arguments On the other hand a demand for proper testing could really slow down innovation if for example teachers are only allowed to use strategies and resources from a scientifically proven list We expect teachers and trainers to make professional judgements Making informed judgements is easier if you have access to peer reviewed research of Brain Gym Fish Oil etc together with an ability to distinguish between science and sciency Ben Goldacre s mission is to show you how even a basic knowledge of science and statistics can equip the lay reader to see through the various scams hoaxes and frauds So how does this professional duty to interrogate the evidence apply to the practices that I promote in active learning and active reviewing Well the Hattie study is a solid start But unlike the fish oil pill for which there is a very clear formula the world of active learning is a little more complex It is harder to define Reading Bad Science started me on a journey of enquiring more deeply into the foundations of active learning It is taking many twists and turns which I will be reporting on in future issues of Active Reviewing Tips looking a little more closely at whether the tips are floating on sciency fish oil or have a scientific foundation Buy the book I recommend it if you want a readable entertaining and passionate introduction to statistics and the scientific method Bad Science is mostly about health and medicine stories Check

James and show some appreciation even if you do not have a question to ask Perhaps a good research site should provoke more questions than it answers Every site should have its own search engine and its own newsletter This site has both You can subscribe to the Outdoor Education Research Evaluation Center UPDATE announcement list by going straight to http www wilderdom com research html reviewed by Roger Greenaway 2 TRACKERS TIPS Googling for Outdoor Sites Google provides the quickest results for most enquiries even outdoor ones To transform Google into a specialist search engine for your outdoor enquiries simply start your enquiry with a few relevant words such as outdoor experiential education then add words to narrow down your enquiry e g UK or evaluation or research or jobs or therapy or special needs or teambuilding or management NB Google only lists pages that include all your words exactly as they are typed Google will also search within any site you find This is often much quicker and better than the search or navigation system on the site you are visiting To search within any site using Google if you use Internet Explorer first download Google s free toolbar from http toolbar google com and select Search Site Or for example you can enter conference site www outdoor learning org in the Google Search Box at http www google com to find all pages with the word conference at www outdoor learning org the IOL UK site You can also use Google s advanced search page http www google com advanced search for site search and many other useful options The Google Directory http directory google com is a good place to narrow your search The problem is getting to know exactly where the editors have hidden the categories of most interest to you I have found outdoor education sites in many different categories including Business Health Kids and Teens Philosophy of Education Recreation Reference Science You will find direct links to 14 useful subcategories at http reviewing co uk outdoor outindex htm google These alternatives to Google have some very useful additional features such as grouping of results in categories or the listing of expert sites

THAT HAS DISAPPEARED Enter the address in the Wayback Machine at http www archive org and you may find that the dead link was only sleeping 3 SITEOWNERS TIPS Definitely articles I am continually amazed by how little information some websites have Here is a list of reasons why placing articles on your site is a bad idea 1 Sorry I couldn t think of one The list of reasons for including articles is a little longer starting with the higher visibility of your website in search engine results through to informing visitors about whatever you want Articles can be newsworthy They can be written by people who have used your services They can be historical about how and why your service has developed over time They can be about books or people who have inspired what you do They can demonstrate your understanding of your clients world They can demonstrate the theory and research that supports the value of what you do If you don t like writing ask a writer or journalist to interview you Or ask someone else to write an article for you If you really do have nothing to say beyond a list of brochure style bullet points you can always seek permission to publish a ready made article on your website If you would prefer to be original why not commission an article Here are just a few examples of Adventure Plus sites that are almost certainly benefiting from having articles on their sites

  • Adventure and Experiential Education SiteFinder Ezine 2.11
    a very active delphi forum called the DeepFun Community attached seamlessly to the site hmm that s a good idea There s also a very useful link to the flow network at http www flownetwork com biosktch htm URL may have changed where you will quickly learn how to pronounce Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi ME high CHICK sent me high ee or Mike for short Back at deepfun com you will find that Bernie and Mike have met and you will find out what they think about each other Mike reveals the difficulties he has had getting funding for studying something as unserious as happiness When I write for a grant you think I can mention the word flow or fun or happiness Not if I want the grant I can t Mike s glowing testimonial for Bernie reads Bernie DeKoven is the only person I know who not only knows about play but knows how to teach it May his efforts prosper for they help us all Dr BDeK Fun is certainly a big player I would love to have learned more about the game he played with a quarter of a million people And how loud he had to blow his whistle I have probably said enough for you to judge whether this site is worth a visit or printing out and whether you want to check out the internet facilities of the DeepFun community It is certainly a great place to LEARN about fun On my next visit to this site I might be able to find answers to these nagging questions Fun is a world of paradox and unseriousness So how far can you probe into fun before being told you are off limits For example the word therapy looks like a no no for this site But what is deepfun if it isn t therapy of some kind Is this just market positioning or is there a real difference A final recommendation has got to be that not only is this a free and generous website but also the face to face training that is offered is also free and generous Check the site to see if you are charitable enough to qualify for this offer I promised to tell about some of the gems I found In addition to the DeepFun Community The Flow Network and The Well Played Game I especially liked The Interplay Experiment http www deepfun com intrplay htm a neat if predictable way of demonstrating the value of fun for all ages Another gem for me was Dr Fun s advice to an event organiser The first thing you want to do when you find yourself in charge of a fun event is to make everybody else responsible Make each team responsible for making something Only instead of having them create a THING have them PLAN THE REST OF THE EVENT for each other I was also pleased to find advice about allowing and supporting opting out and allowing anyone to stop the whole game When someone anyone for any reason calls TIME OUT you have to stop playing Compulsory fun is not a paradox but an impossiblility Only desperate comedians TELL you to laugh Please let me know what gems YOU find at deepfun com or at any other interesting experiential learning web sites that you visit Write to mailto sitefindergems reviewing co uk Let s continue with the topic of fun and games next year CONTENTS TOP 3 TRACKERS TIPS zzzzzz SEARCH WHILE YOU SLEEP zzzzzzzzzzzz Regular readers will know about these two handy robots TracerLock http www tracerlock com

NOW HOSTS A DISCUSSION GROUP interCOM now hosts a discussion group as well as providing a newsletter The breakdown of this 300 international list is Africa 7 North America 7 Asia 14 Latin America 14 Australia NZ 29 Europe 29 Anyone can join this list to discuss Experiential Learning and Adventure Programming Approximately one third of current list members are also members of AEE the Association for Experiential Education BULLETIN BOARDS BARS and E CONFERENCES One thing I have noticed about discussion lists is that they are becoming more and more focused on specific topics But the interests of the outdoor adventure community overlap with many other fields So how can the internet best support networking ACROSS these special interest communities without producing information overload The solution seems to be creating a discussion facility that a has high visibility on the web b allows users access via email or the web or both c allows users to easily adjust the flow of information they receive and the groups or threads they belong to In the last issue I recommended the Freepint Bar at http www freepint co uk bar The bar now has all of the above facilities and is a great place to ask questions to information professionals After asking your question you simply click a box if you want to receive by email any messages that appear in the thread that you have just begun Your question or message title will be seen by thousands of information professionals but all YOU will receive is responses to your particular question This is a neat application of technology for reducing information overload exactly what we should expect from information professionals This clever combination of services that is easily configured and controlled by
