Why Creativity in the Classroom Matters More Than Ever | eSkills | eLeadership

Why Creativity in the Classroom Matters More Than Ever | eSkills | eLeadership | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
In his popular TED talk, Ken Robinson made the powerful point that most of the students doing work in your classrooms today will be entering a job force that none of you can visualize. That talk is from almost ten years ago, so we already know he was right and can only assume he’ll continue to be so in the years to come.

Learning a specific skill set doesn’t have the value in today’s world that it once did. Learning how to be more creative (and thus adaptable) – now that’s what prepares students for life beyond the classroom.

Schools and businesses throughout the world are latching onto this idea. Academia has started to embrace providing courses in creativity. Many of the biggest and most successful businesses in the world now practice the 20% rule – the commitment to allowing employees to devote 20% of their work time to thinking creatively and exploring new ideas.

-so important to get this message out to educators!! 

HJJP's curator insight, March 31, 4:23 AM

In General all people are visual in nature, some more than others, but things that can be seen and interpret right away are grasped and understood faster.

 

This infographic clearly provides the numbers behind the theory.

 

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Curiosity: The Heart of Lifelong Learning | LEARNing To LEARN

Curiosity: The Heart of Lifelong Learning | LEARNing To LEARN | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

If you suspect that curious kids fare better in careers and life, you're right—for a variety of reasons. Research suggests that intellectual curiosity has as big of an effect on performance as hard work. (link is external) When put together, curiosity and hard work account for success just as much as intelligence.

.

Another study found that people who were curious about a topic retained what they learned for longer periods of time (link is external). And even more impressive, research has linked curiosity to a wide range of important adaptive behaviors, (link is external) including tolerance of anxiety and uncertainty, positive emotions, humor, playfulness, out-of-box thinking, and a noncritical attitude—all attributes associated with healthy social outcomes.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, April 30, 2:38 PM

Some of this is known well by any educator in the world; some points might offer a different perspective or a gentle reminder. And please keep in mind that "reward" doesn't necessarily mean giving the students a piece of candy or points or something else. Most kids (and adults) crave affirmation.

Declaring personal data bankruptcy and the cost of privacy | Digital Citizen

Declaring personal data bankruptcy and the cost of privacy | Digital Citizen | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
We’re a society in conflict. On one hand there’s outrage over government surveillance programs and wholesale data breaches. 28% of the online population claims to use tools to disguise their identity or location. 61% of Americans say personal rights and freedoms command higher priority than anti-terror measures. On the other hand, so many trade their identities away for a pittance, or even for nothing – valuing them, wrongly, at zero.

Why are they so ready to surrender their privacy to commercial interests? Especially when their trust is betrayed so regularly due to security lapses, with such damning publicity for retailers, banks, and more usual suspects?

A lot of us voluntarily declare personal data bankruptcy. It’s a big mistake.

What’s personal data bankruptcy? It’s when you declare your personal profile worthless. You want to know how often I go to the movies? What features I like in a new car? What magazines I read?


Anyone curious is going to use all that data to make money – so pay me.

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

In working with students, critical thinking encourages and promotes:

Humility to accept criteria that is not their own.Courage to defend their own criteria against others.Responsibility to contrast and take into account the appropriate information.Commitment to filtering out and separating valid from useless information.Respect for the group and for the individual when the time comes for debate and contrasting ideas.

To educate an individual in critical thinking is to educate him or her to be capable of governing or controlling their own personal and professional life and to be able to find answers and solutions to problems. It is the road to forming critical and responsible citizens who are capable of confronting the challenges of the future.

Interesting article. Great quote: It is not about questioning every information we get everyday, it is about being critical with the information that is relevant to us when we make up an opinion about something.

So many students simply want the answer...no thinking involved, the easy way. We are doing our youth a tremendous injustice not emphasizing both the metacognitive and critical thinking processes. They need to be able to explore a problem, then analyze, explain, and evaluate it in order to survive as adults.
