How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

A study in 1985 “On the Brain of a Scientist: Albert Einstein” found that Einstein’s brain was actually not significantly different from others. As an Organization Development blogger put it:

 

                     ===> what made Einstein different was his mind. <===


His thinking and passion for learning were the basis of his genius. His brain was the same, but his intellect was markedly different. He was often humble about his intellect, and instead said that learning relied on working hard and imagining the impossible. So what made his learning so different? What can we learn from Einstein?

What is learning?

What is learning? | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

"A number of new 'theories' are emerging in the digital age, as people attempt to provide explanations for what is happening with learning. Some argue that learning is changing as a direct result of technology. Learners are indeed consuming, creating, organising and sharing a lot more content than they ever previously did. The exponential rise in user generated content on social media sites bears testament to this, and when these kind of activities spill over into the formal learning domain, previously well established learning theories are challenged. We now see the emergence of a number of new theories that attempt to explain learning in the 21st Century. These include heutagogy, paragogy, connectivism and rhizomatic learning. One of the characteristics of learning through digital media is the ability to crowd source content, ideas and artefacts, and to promote and participate in global discussions. That's why I want to ask the questions: What
is learning? Does it differ from learning prior to the advent of global communications technology? Does learning now require new explanatory frameworks?"

 

These questions have really got me thinking.....

Does Brainstorming Work or Not!? [YouTube}

This is the question psychologists have been baffled by for nearly half a century and we're still on the path of discovering whether brainstorming is a technique that extracts the best out of people or if it's a method that suppresses creativity. Journalist and author, Jonah Lehrer, argues that brainstorming produces less original ideas than those people who work by themselves.
