Can we be intelligent about intelligence?: Why education needs the concept of plastic general ability

Can we be intelligent about intelligence?: Why education needs the concept of plastic general ability | 21st Century Education - designing teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Abstract

The notion of general cognitive ability (or ‘intelligence’) is explored and why the time might now be ripe for educators to re-consider the power offered by a general intellectual capacity which is itself amenable to educational influence. We review existing knowledge concerning general intelligence, including the cohabitation of general and special abilities, cognitive modules, development, and evidence for plasticity of the general processor.

Colearn | The Collaborative School Day

Colearn | The Collaborative School Day | 21st Century Education - designing teaching and learning | Scoop.it

"The Future of Learning” where Councillor Jacqui Watts and a couple of others who were challenging the current education system which didn’t allow learners to engage or collaborate.  The last session was on “co-creating the community” and we worked in groups to brainstorm some ideas of what CoLearn can do to create these collaborative spaces for students to learn.  One of the things that I enjoyed with this workshop was that it was facilitated by young people who were in the middle of their last year of schooling and who set up their business" Activate Learning 

Selena Prior's insight:

A strong link between business and education for collaborative learning being made on this day. How do we feel about this as educators?

Experiential Learning Cycles - Overview of 9 Experiential Learning Cycle models

Experiential Learning Cycles - Overview of 9 Experiential Learning Cycle models | 21st Century Education - designing teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Experiential Learning Cycles are models for understanding how the process of learning works.  They are distinct from other models of learning, such as behavioral models or social learning models, in two notable ways:

Experiential Learning Cycles treat the learner's subjective experience as of critical importance in the learning process.  ELCs draw on experiential education principles, which are largely based on the educational philosophy of John Dewey (1920's-1950's).

Experiential Learning Cycles propose an iterative series of processes which underlies learning.  Depending on the model, there is anywhere between one stage (experience alone) through to six stages of learning to be considered.

The mysterious workings of the adolescent brain

Why do teenagers seem so much more impulsive, so much less self-aware than grown-ups? Cognitive neuroscientist Sarah-Jayne Blakemore compares the prefrontal cortex in adolescents to that of adults, to show us how typically “teenage” behavior is caused by the growing and developing brain.

Maree Whiteley's curator insight, October 26, 2015 2:57 AM

As learning practices and technology tools change, mobile learning itself will continue to evolve. For 2016, the focus is on a variety of challenges, from how learners access content to how the idea of a “curriculum” is defined. Technology like tablets PCs, apps, and access to broadband internet are lubricating the shift to mobile learning, but a truly immersive mobile learning environment goes beyond the tools for learning to the lives and communities valued by each individual learner.

It is only within these communities that the native context of each learner can be fully understood. Here, in these communities that are both local and digital, a “need to know” is born, knowledge accrues incrementally, progress resonates naturally, and a full picture of each learner as a human being fully emerges.

The Snow Report: Pamela Snow's blog | 21st Century Education - designing teaching and learning | Scoop.it
I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Monash University, and live and work (most of the time!) in Bendigo, central Victoria (Australia).  I am a registered psychologist and qualified originally in speech pathology. Both disciplines strongly inform my research, as does my seven years working in public health research and teaching.
My research passion is communication competence - primarily as this pertains to vulnerability in early life, but increasingly as it pertains to how student doctors learn to master the art and craft of interacting with patients in ways that optimise clinical outcomes.

Lego Rube Goldberg Machine - YouTube

Goal = Make wall fall on pig (angry birds!)
Selena Prior's insight:

Reuben Garrett Lucius "Rube" Goldberg (July 4, 1883 – December 7, 1970) was an American cartoonist, sculptor, author, engineer, and inventor.

He is best known for a series of popular cartoons depicting complicated gadgets that perform simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways, similar to Heath Robinson devices in the UK, as well as the Storm P devices in Denmark. Goldberg received many honors in his lifetime, including a Pulitzer Prize for his political cartooning in 1948 and the Banshees' Silver Lady Award 1959.[1]

Goldberg was a founding member and the first president of the National Cartoonists Society,[2] and he is the namesake of theReuben Award, which the organization awards to the Cartoonist of the Year. He is the inspiration for various international competitions, known as Rube Goldberg Machine Contests, which challenge participants to make a complicated machine to perform a simple task. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rube_Goldberg)

 

I love this - so much learning, so much fun.
