How shocking was Brazil's 7-1 defeat? Poison distribution & chances of events over time

How shocking was Brazil's 7-1 defeat? Poison distribution & chances of events over time | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Andrew Steele: Germany's trouncing of Brazil was unprecedented in World Cup history, but the result may not be as surprising as you might think
Pascual Pérez-Paredes's insight:

The model is incredibly simple: it assumes that goals in football follow a"Poisson distribution". The Poisson is a statistical staple because it is broadly applicable in the real world: it calculates the chance of a given number of events (such as goals being scored) happening within a specified length of time (such as a 90-minute football match), given the average rate at which those events have occurred in the past.

Making Learning Meaningful: 6 Priorities For Whole Learning - TeachThought

Making Learning Meaningful: 6 Priorities For Whole Learning - TeachThought | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it

"Editor’s Note: We recently discovered the Bay Area’s Prospect Sierra School’s interesting learning model that prioritizes 6 ideas for learning in the 21st century. There is, of course, no single “best” way to pursue “21st century learning”–nor any learning at all for that matter. But seeing the way other inspired educators pursue the idea can teach each one of us a lot. In this model, we appreciate the inclusion of self-knowledge, as well as moving past the idea of content to true disciplinary knowledge–seeing knowledge in context and application."

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level  you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, …

Chris Carter's curator insight, June 24, 7:33 PM

Yes, and YES!!! Critical thinking really takes risk, because someone is likely to disagree with you. How much better it is, however, to have a well thought opinion and stand alone, than to be a lemming. 

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, June 25, 8:21 AM

A really excellent article on something that can be hard to define and practice, and yet is such an essential skill for life.   I really like the distinction Terry Heick makes between thought and knowledge and the interplay between them.

Javier Antonio Bellina's curator insight, June 25, 11:38 AM

El pensamiento crítico requiere coraje, actitud y valor que no se fomenta en los sistemas educativos en general debido a los riesgos que conlleva.

The Place of Virtual, Pedagogic and Physical Space in the 21st Century Classroom

The Place of Virtual, Pedagogic and Physical Space in the 21st Century Classroom | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
This paper outlines work connected to the successful convergence of digital, pedagogic and physical space. The Sydney Centre for Innovation in Learning (SCIL) has been focusing on the gap that has existed in schools where the physical layout is often stuck in an industrial-era education model, rather than reflecting the possibilities of ICT-enhanced personalised learning. SCIL has been working to create digital spaces so that students can consistently transition from

the real to virtual world

Common Core in Action: 10 Visual Literacy Strategies

Common Core in Action: 10 Visual Literacy Strategies | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Do you wish your students could better understand and critique the images that saturate their waking life? That's the purpose of visual literacy (VL), to explicitly teach a collection of competencies

Via Beth Dichter

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 25, 6:09 AM

What is visual literacy? The Institute of Museum and Library Services defines it as  "Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made"

(http://www.imls.gov/about/21st_century_skills_list.aspx).

This is a 21st century skill and our students need to be visually literate. This post shares:

* Standards that support visual literacy (from Common Core, National Council of Teachers of English Standards and the Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning Corporation.

* A lengthy list of the many formats you will find visuals that you can use as teaching tools, such as political cartoons, symbols, dioramas, and advertisements.

* Visual Thinking Routines - each of the routines is described and two have videos that demonstrate them. The ones with videos are Model Think Aloud Strategy, and Introduction to Visual Thinking Strategies that is "a specific approach to whole-class viewing and talking about art that primarily uses [three] questions."

Additional resources include Asking the 4Ws, Five Card Flickr, Image Analysis Worksheets (five different ones), and a lesson: Step-by-Step: Working with Images that Matter. 

We know that many of our students are visual learners and that they need to be able to "read" images. This post provides a wealth of resources that will help make your students adept at this process.

Video: What makes a word “real”? | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
One could argue that slang words like ‘hangry,’ ‘defriend’ and ‘adorkable’ fill crucial meaning gaps in the English language, even if they don't appear in the dictionary. After all, who actually decides which words make it into those pages? Language historian Anne Curzan gives a charming look at the humans behind dictionaries, and the choices they make.
