The Paradigm Shift: 4 Goals Of 21st Century Learning | Behavior Analysis eLearning | Scoop.it

"As academic standards shift, technology evolves, and student habits change, schools are being forced to consider new ways of framing curriculum and engaging students in the classroom, and project-based learning is among the most successful and powerful of these possibilities.

 

As both a planning and a learning tool, project-based learning challenges teachers to make new decisions about how they plan student learning experiences, while simultaneously empowering students to take a more active role in the learning process."

Schools and educators can't keep up. So many are still using technology tools like glorifed projectors instead of pushing the envelope and using tools to teach critical thinking.

American schools are way ahead of the crowd in terms of education reform. I'd like to see a similar paradigm shift in Jamaican classrooms. Empowering students to be active participants in their own learning is a winning model. TeachThought rocks!

The 6 Biggest Mistakes of Managing an Introvert

The 6 Biggest Mistakes of Managing an Introvert | Behavior Analysis eLearning | Scoop.it

Do you supervise individuals would might describe themselves as an introvert? If the answer is “yes,” you may want to take a moment to examine how you manage them. In many cases, we hold misconceptions about introversion, which can lead to ill-fated supervisory decisions. I’d like to point you in the right direction.


While many people confuse being introverted with shyness, introversion is in fact about how an individual handles stimulation and processes information. Those on the introverted end of the introversion-extroversion continuum require a slightly different set of workplace conditions to excel, and it is not difficult to become more sensitive to their needs. Small changes in management and workplace elements can transact into an environment that is more conducive to success.
