Imagination: Creating the Future of Education and Work

Imagination: Creating the Future of Education and Work | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"Americans are currently faced with a shortage of jobs, but by 2018 the nation will be faced with a shortage of educated workers. This project began in Louisiana, where 100,000 skilled labor jobs are currently unfilled. If the future workforce continues to be trained for the past, particularly as other countries look ahead, Americans will no longer be globally competitive as the domestic economy and infrastructure continue to collapse.

 

"Can that be prevented, and if so, how? With the industrial era crumbling behind us and technological developments rapidly accelerating toward a hybrid reality that still hasn’t fully manifested, the co-directors of this project, Rita J. King and Joshua Fouts, call this fleeting period between the two longer eras the “Imagination Age,” a time during which humanity must imagine and then create, together, the systems of the new global economy and culture.

 

"Since 2007, the directors of this project have been collaborating on the development of imagination as the driving force behind this shift. The research and field work covered in this project began in January 2009. Rather than publishing results as a book or white paper, both of which are one-sided approaches to a subject that demands a conversation, an interactive site was chosen as the format.

 

"This site doesn’t just present theories and ideas, but rather actionable solutions that can be immediately and easily implemented in service of a relevant education for American students who need to gain proficiency if not mastery of core subject areas while at the same time being prepared for the reality of future work. Imagination is a broad topic, encompassing everything the mind can conjure, so the findings in this report are focused on those that overlap with the changing world of work."

This site is a remarkable piece of work. The authors, King and Fouts, have assembled a series of essays and resources about the medium range future and how we can make it better.

Adquiere una nueva perspectiva

Adquiere una nueva perspectiva | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
por Juan Sebastian Celis Maya - En respuesta a los desafíos de la vida, es fácil en ocasiones ver el mundo desde una perspectiva de supervivencia, pues así como los animales deben luchar por sobrevivir, nosotros como seres humanos, luchamos por sobrevivir en diferentes ámbitos de la vida, ya sean laborales, afectivos, financieros, académicos… etc. Es importante destacar entonces, que bajo ésta perspectiva, se ve el mundo de manera más individualista, sin tener en cuenta que las demás person

How to use Infographics as multimodal learning tools

How to use Infographics as multimodal learning tools | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
People don’t all learn the same way. Teachers know this, and that’s why multimodal learning methods are an essential part of any teacher’s toolkit.Venggage

Responding to the changing linguistic landscape caused by digital media and communication, many teachers are leveraging the multimodal learning opportunities offered by mixed media in the classroom.

Infographics combine both text and image, making them tools able to engage both verbal and visual learning styles. The combination of verbal and visual learning styles has been shown to ultimately increase students’ retention of basic skills by 21% and higher order skills by 20%. Having students research, conceptualize and create infographics in groups also addresses verbal and participatory approaches.

With that in mind, here are seven ways to use infographics as multimodal learning tools in the classroom
