Paul Simmons's curator insight, Today, 5:44 AM

Unlike talent, the attainment of knowledge cannot be seen unless you make it really visible by creating a medium to showcase learning. And now, technology offers many ways to show that learning takes place. 

Anita Vance's curator insight, Today, 8:56 AM

I like the idea of sharing and keeping a progression with a time for reflection...and the sketchbook for kids - their own book - how perfect.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, Today, 8:29 PM

It's one thing to post student work, but it's quite another thing for the students to reflect on their work over time. Imagine what an impact it could make for a student to see how far he has progressed or for a student to see the final product of something she thought was beyond her reach.

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.
