Teaching Disruptively

Teaching Disruptively | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
Teaching Disruptively
Gino Fransman's insight:

But teaching disruptively is different. Teaching disruptively has less to do with defiance and the undermining of practices in schools and district that range from good to well-intentioned to mediocre to abhorrent. Teaching disruptively is about reaching students in new ways–disrupting through digital platforms, for example–then turning them loose on the world.

Gino Fransman's insight:

Well, along the academic path (mine certainly), I tend to find myself in places unimagined, with some more refined conventions unfamiliar (unlike 'suiping'/throwing back whatever is brought in a glass all through college, that is). I quite like thinking of graduate attributes as empowering and taking away stress or caution due to the unknown. So, know more! And no, this is not me advocating wine as the route through academia, though it's not uncommon... :-)

It’s a Mistake Not to Use Mistakes as Part of the Learning Process

It’s a Mistake Not to Use Mistakes as Part of the Learning Process | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
Hearing this talk created in me a great need to examine the many mistakes I have made in my life. I discovered that my mistakes fall into four categories:

Those I hid
Those I learned nothing from
Those I learned from
Those I learned from and shared my new knowledge with others.

It’s the last two categories that I think have great potential to increase learning and teaching.

An Introduction to Business Plans | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
A business plan is a written description of your business's future. That's all there is to it--a document that desribes what you plan to do and how you plan to do it. If you jot down a paragraph on the back of an envelope describing your business strategy, you've written a plan, or at least the germ of a plan.
