Yes, You Can Teach and Assess Creativity!

Yes, You Can Teach and Assess Creativity! | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

By Andrew Miller

 

"

A recent blog by Grant Wiggins affirmed what I have long believed about creativity: it is a 21st-century skill we can teach and assess. Creativity fosters deeper learning, builds confidence and creates a student ready for college and career.

 

"However, many teachers don't know how to implement the teaching and assessment of creativity in their classrooms. While we may have the tools to teach and assess content, creativity is another matter, especially if we want to be intentional about teaching it as a 21st-century skill. In a PBL project, some teachers focus on just one skill, while others focus on many. Here are some strategies educators can use tomorrow to get started teaching and assessing creativity -- just one more highly necessary skill in that 21st-century toolkit."

There is no doubt we will need to carefully consider how to gently turn schools towards a focus on creativity. This blog is a useful contribution to that process.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Linear Technology - LTspice Demo Circuits | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

LTspice Demo Circuits

LTspice IV is a powerful, fast and free simulation tool, schematic capture and waveform viewer with enhancements and models for improving the simulation of switching regulators.

 

LTspice provides macro models for most of Linear Technology’s switch-mode DC/DC converters, op amps, comparators, linear regulators as well as a library of devices for general analog circuit simulation including discretes. Selected Linear Technology devices also have demonstration circuit available for free download. These demo circuits are designed to ensure proper performance and have been reviewed by Linear Technology’s factory applications group. Follow the instructions below to run the demo circuits in LTspice.

 

Step 1. If you do not already have a copy of LTspice, click here to download and install LTspice.

 

Step 2. Once LTspice is installed,  click on the link(s) below to launch the simulation.  LTspice should open automatically.

 

Step 3. If LTspice does not automatically open after clicking the above link, you can instead run the simulation by right clicking on the link and selecting “Save Target As”. After saving the file to your computer, start LTspice and open the demonstartion circuit by selecting "Open" from the "File" menu.Demo Circuit

Thanks to the Internet, Education is Finally Becoming Personal | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Having roiled the music recording and newspaper industries, the Internet is now churning through universities and colleges.

 

Much media attention has been paid to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), where universities post course material online to be freely consumed by tens or even hundreds of thousands of citizens.

 

Making quality educational material available at no cost will obviously play a significant role in tomorrow's education system. But using digital tools to personalize the education process offers the biggest return on our scarce education dollars.
