Struggle For Smarts? How Eastern And Western Cultures Tackle Learning

Struggle For Smarts? How Eastern And Western Cultures Tackle Learning | Apprendre dans un monde connecté | Scoop.it
For the most part in American culture, intellectual struggle in school children is seen as an indicator of weakness, while in Eastern cultures it is not only tolerated, it is often used to measure emotional strength.

E. Erny-Newton's insight:

What is described here is what psychologist Carol Dweck highlights in her research : fixed mindset vs growth mindset ; some people tend to see achievements as based on innate abilities -they have a fixed mindset. Others see them as the fruit of effort and work -they have a growth mindset.Those two groups react very differently to setbacks : fixed minsets will give up, while growth mindsets will see an opportunity to improve.For more on that, see http://news.stanford.edu/news/2007/february7/dweck-020707.html ou en français : http://owni.fr/2011/02/07/apprendre-est-un-etat-d%E2%80%99esprit/

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, April 10, 8:06 AM

This article has a message about the view of struggling in eastern and western cultures, and how this affects learning.  As an aspiring teacher, I found this very instructive.  The examples used were good and I really find myself wanting to read more on this topic.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, April 23, 11:20 AM

In this article the resources or lack there of are a huge issue for the children in these schools. It makes me think of our society and the technology and other resources that we have aviable to and dont think twice about compared to this society that has nothing. This also triggered my mind of a prospective teacher as to thinking of the differnces between learning styles in the regions.

Rechercher l'information Internet versus Réseaux Sociaux

La deuxième partie sur la recherche dans les réseaux sociaux est particulièrement intéressante, car très rarement abordée de manière systématique comme ici. Beau travail de @nbenyounes !

FrancoisMagnan's curator insight, March 24, 2013 3:53 AM

Confronter ces deux méthodes est intéressant dans la mesure où cela rejoint de plus en plus nos pratiques, et du fait de l'évolution des moteurs de recherche qui intègrent de plus en plus des aspects sociaux (pour ne citer qu'un exemple, Google attribue des points aux pages bien relevées par Twitter ou Scoop-It), cela nous concernera tous, utilisateurs ou non de ces réseaux.
En terme de pratiques, il serait intéressant aussi de confronter pratique de veille avec les RSS et veille sur Twitter, qui relèvent de logiques différentes, classificatoires/documentaires pour les RSS et communicationnelles pour Twitter.

Marco Bertolini's curator insight, March 25, 2013 12:56 AM

Une présentation extrêmement intéressante : comment rechercher l'information sur Internet via les moteurs de recherche, bien sûr, mais aussi par les médias sociaux.  Des dias simples et claires pour un contenu accessible.

Katelm's curator insight, March 27, 2013 1:40 AM

Une présentation interessante présageant du futur très proche de la dominance de la recherche d'information sur les réseaux sociaux.

Infographic: An Amazing, Invisible Truth About Wikipedia

Infographic: An Amazing, Invisible Truth About Wikipedia | Apprendre dans un monde connecté | Scoop.it

Every Wikipedia entry has an optional feature we take for granted--geotagging. An entry on the Lincoln Memorial will be linked to its specific latitude and longitude in Washington D.C. On any individual post, this may or may not be a useful thing. But what about looking at these locations en masse?

That was a question asked by data viz specialist and programmer Olivier Beauchesne. To find out, he downloaded all of Wikipedia (it’s open-source, after all) then used an algorithm that would assemble 300 topical clusters from popular, related keywords. Then he placed the location of each article in these topical clusters on a map. What he found was astounding...

Isobel Falconer et al. - Motives and tensions in the release of Open Educational Resources

This paper looks at one aspect of that lifecycle – the motivations underlying release – and analyses the resultant tensions in the process of releasing OER. It draws its evidence from a major programme of projects to release OER (UKOER) funded by two UK government agencies, the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and the Higher Education Academy (HEA).The programme operated on two basic premises: that widespread involvement of teaching staff would bring about a sustainable change in culture from focusing on content ownership, to focusing on open sharing; and that building a critical mass of OERs would bring about sustainable change in practices of reuse and repurposing.

Mapping the global flow of scientific talent by way of Mondrian and Kandinsky.


After their wonderful visual timeline of the future based on famous fiction and visual history of the Nobel Prize, Italian information visualization designer Giorgia Lupi and her team at Accurat are back with another exclusive English version of a piece originally designed for La Lettura, the Sunday literary supplement of an Italian newspaper— this time exploring the phenomenon of global “brain drain” in science, with an eye towards understanding the reasons why researchers might choose to leave their countries of origin and pursue careers elsewhere.
