A new curriculum for real-world success

A new curriculum for real-world success | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it
U.S. surveys of employers reveal, over and over, that what they prize most in future managers are excellence in written and spoken communication, critical and creative thinking, an ability to collaborate across distances and cultural differences, breadth of knowledge and experience that takes students out of localism and provincialism, basic technical skills, quantitative literacy, and an ability to be flexible and take risks in changing environments.

That’s a great syllabus for a new approach to liberal arts.

The No. 1 Enemy of Creativity: Fear of Failure

The No. 1 Enemy of Creativity: Fear of Failure | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

To innovate, stop worrying about "failure" and start thinking of "learning." If you're an MBA-trained manager or executive, the odds are you were never, at any point in your educational or professional career given permission to fail, even on a "little bet." Your parents wanted you to achieve, achieve, achieve — in sports, the classroom, and scouting or work. Your teachers penalized you for having the "wrong" answers, or knocked your grades down if you were imperfect, according to however your adult figures defined perfection.  

 

But entrepreneurs and designers think of failure the way most people think of learning.

Facebook Engineer Jocelyn Goldfein To Women: Stop Being Scared Of Computer Science

Facebook Engineer Jocelyn Goldfein To Women: Stop Being Scared Of Computer Science | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it
If you like solving puzzles, you'll love programming.

 

Less than 12 percent of computer science degrees earned in 2010-11 were awarded to women and that percentage has declined over the past couple of decades.
Goldfein, 37, believes that the reason women don't go into the field is misperception. There's some cultural pressure that makes girls think they aren't smart enough.

 

This needs to change.

As Children’s Freedom Has Declined, So Has Their Creativity

As Children’s Freedom Has Declined, So Has Their Creativity | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

Creativity is nurtured by freedom and stifled by the continuous monitoring, evaluation, adult-direction, and pressure to conform that restrict children’s lives today. In the real world few questions have one right answer, few problems have one right solution; that’s why creativity is crucial to success in the real world.

How Overly Academic Learning Is Killing Education | TeachThought

How Overly Academic Learning Is Killing Education | TeachThought | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

By Terry Heick

 

"...the highly academic nature of reading and writing standards—while full of “rigor”–only serve to further detach the learning from the reality of the learner. If the ultimate measure of understanding is the ability of a learner to “transfer” understanding from a highly scaffolded situation to one without scaffolding—and hopefully from the classroom to the “real world”—highly artificial and academic standards, instruction, and assessment “data” only serve to further obscure the learning process from those who matter most: the learners and their families."

Just as photography was a controversial new art form in the late 19th century (critics questioned the role of the artist if the machine ultimately produced the work), it seems computer programmers have yet to be fully accepted into the art world.

Clinamen » The Year of Computational Thinking | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

Given this global context (“the year of code”) and my local context (UW-Madison’s Digital Studies program), I’ve attempted to make this “the year of computational thinking” for students in my classes. And I guess you could say I’ve done this by hacking the classroom. I tried to imagine what I’d say if an administrator who asked me why I needed classroom space. Why couldn’t I just teach my courses online?

Steven Johnson: Where good ideas come from

People often credit their ideas to individual "Eureka!" moments. But Steven Johnson shows how history tells a different story. His fascinating tour takes us from the "liquid networks" of London's coffee houses to Charles Darwin's long, slow hunch to today's high-velocity web.

 

Chance favours the prepared mind.

News and Thoughts: The Unintended Effects of Our Technology Choices

News and Thoughts: The Unintended Effects of Our Technology Choices | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

We all need to understand not only the obvious but also the subtle sometimes almost imperceptible ways in which the nature and capabilities of our technology choices sculpt our behavior. Whether it’s by reducing everything to either yes or no, on or off, 1 or 0 choices, altering how we listen and consequently learn to hear music once it's no longer analog but only digital, or how our devices begin to act as intermediaries when we interact with each other whether in another country or sitting next to us at the table, the slight shifts created by technology, over time, develop into fundamental changes.

Teaching for the Future: Engineers pursue big projects

Teaching for the Future: Engineers pursue big projects | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

Teaching for the Future: Engineers pursue big projectsUSA TODAY increasingly at schools across the country, engineering students build things earlier in their college years. They leaven the heaping helpings of math lectures that for decades have defined their education with the messy business of building things that do, or don't, work. At Olin, students have to build something in weeks-long projects as freshmen and start a business that sells to real customers before they graduate. "Our model is a music school with engineering as a performance art, and the studio time that students spend with each other an enormous part of their education."

Learning as Freedom - New York Times

Learning as Freedom - New York Times | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it
Who wants to attend school to learn to be “human capital”? Who aspires for their children to become economic or military resources? Dewey had a different vision. Given the pace of change, it is impossible (he noted in 1897) to know what the world will be like in a couple of decades, so schools first and foremost should teach us habits of learning.
