Edtwist Helps Students Organize And Collaborate On Their Online Research

Edtwist Helps Students Organize And Collaborate On Their Online Research | 21st century education | Scoop.it

Admit it: When you think of online research, it's usually just a fancy way of saying you're going to Google something — I'm guilty, anyway. Los Los Angeles-based Edtwist isn’t trying resist that, exactly, but it has created what founder and CEO Julie Lee said is a more collaborative and “learning-centric” environment, one in which students and other researchers can work together to sift through the Internet’s “data smog” and find useful information.

Why good leaders make you feel safe

Why good leaders make you feel safe | 21st century education | Scoop.it
What makes a great leader? Management theorist Simon Sinek suggests, it’s someone who makes their employees feel secure, who draws staffers into a circle of trust. But creating trust and safety — especially in an uneven economy — means taking on big responsibility.
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Getting the environment right is all part of making colleagues and employees feel safe!  Trust and co-operation are all part of the deal.  Simon Sinek shares his philosophy on a circle of safety.  As teachers we need to strive to make this circle in our physical and virtual classrooms.

Experimenting in Education: 21st Century School Culture

Experimenting in Education: 21st Century School Culture | 21st century education | Scoop.it

In Changing Education Paradigms, Sir Ken Robinson discusses the habits of institutions and the habitats they occupy.  While his intelligence exceeds mine by a factor of 10, I think what he is talking about is creating a collaborative culture of learning among all stakeholders of a school or institution.  Among other things, this culture must be truly collaborative--from top to bottom, or better yet, from bottom to top.  There are so many aspects to explore within this thought, but one that struck me recently is the general disjunction of professional development between administration and staff....

Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students

Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students | 21st century education | Scoop.it

In his new book To Sell is Human, author Daniel Pink reports that education is one of the fastest growing job categories in the country. And with this growth comes the opportunity to change the way educators envision their roles and their classrooms. Guided by findings in educational research and neuroscience, the emphasis on cognitive skills like computation and memorization is evolving to include less tangible, non-cognitive skills, like collaboration and improvisation.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

If change is needed then as facilitators let us acknowledge the intrinsic motivators and not the extrinsic ones.
