Ken Robinson: How to escape education's death valley | Video on TED.com

Sir Ken Robinson outlines 3 principles crucial for the human mind to flourish -- and how current education culture works against them. In a funny, stirring talk he tells us how to get out of the educational "death valley" we now face, and how to nurture our youngest generations with a climate of possibility.

 

Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we're educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence

 

 

Miloš Bajčetić's insight:

“The real role of leadership in education … is not and should not be command and control. The real role of leadership is climate control, creating a climate of possibility.”

 

Great Talk!

Why My MOOC is Not Built on Video - MOOC Report

Why My MOOC is Not Built on Video - MOOC Report | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
Why didn’t we have more video? The short answer is budget and time: making good-quality videos is expensive & making simple yet effective educational videos is time consuming, if not necessarily costly. #NumericalMOOC was created on-the-fly, with little budget. But here’s my point: expensive, high-production-value videos are not necessary to achieve a quality learning experience.

The fixation with videos in MOOCs, online courses and blended learning is worrisome.

E-learning quality assurance standards, organizations and research | Tony Bates | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

I am surprised how often academic colleagues argue that there are no quality standards for e-learning. Well, hello, I’m sorry, but there are and some of them are damned good. However, I was surprised to find while doing some research for a client that there is no single source where one can go to compare different quality standards for e-learning. So I’m starting a list here, and would appreciate it if readers could direct me to ones that I may have missed. (For more detailed information on some of these, see comments below).

Carol Dweck: The power of believing that you can improve | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain's capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.

Technology upends higher education paradigm

Technology upends higher education paradigm | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
Experts across the world agree that online learning is heralding a wave of change in education.

Last month, the Korean government announced it will launch its first platform for massive open online courses, or MOOC, within this year, jumping on the global bandwagon of providing higher education courses online.

It is crucial for the present education system to get off the traditional path because different skill sets are required for the 21st century, said Blackman, who is visiting Seoul for a conference. He pointed out that the so-called “21st century skills” include digital literacy ― knowledge, skills and behaviors used in a broad range of digital devices.

How to Grow a Classroom Culture That Supports Blended Learning - Mind/Shift

How to Grow a Classroom Culture That Supports Blended Learning - Mind/Shift | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

"It all started in 1987, when I got a grant from the State of California. The state sent me eight Macintosh computers, never asking if I knew how to use them, and when they arrived I had no idea how to even turn them on. I realized then that I was going to fail if I didn’t get some help quickly. I looked around for colleagues who could help, but none of them had any idea. Our school had no IT department. So I took a leap of faith and confessed to my students that I had no idea how to use the new computers and that I needed help. This turned out to be a stroke of good luck, even though I did not see it that way at the time. It was the beginning of my new teaching methodology."

Two comparator studies for the quality assessment review - HEFCE

Two comparator studies for the quality assessment review - HEFCE | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

Two studies have been published to stimulate thinking and discussion to contribute to the review of future approaches to quality assessment in higher education being undertaken by HEFCE, together with the funding bodies in Wales and Northern Ireland. The Quality Assessment Review discussion document published in January asks important questions of higher education providers, of students, of employers, and of other stakeholders about what quality assessment arrangements should be like in the future.

 

We hope that these studies will prompt reflection on cross-sector themes and issues, and highlight innovative practices that might, with appropriate redesign, be effective within our own future quality assessment system. We are not seeking formal responses to these two studies but would welcome reflections on the issues raised in responses to our Quality Assessment Review discussion document.

 

International comparator study to inform the quality assessment review in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

 

This study provides an account of approaches to assessment of academic standards and quality in three competitor countries.  It considers quality assurance approaches in Norway, the United States and Australia, and focuses on issues such as the role of audit and reporting, the burden of different approaches, and the role of outcomes-based approaches.

 

Approaches to regulation in other UK sectors

 

This study presents a thematic analysis of regulatory approaches in other UK sectors: advertising, qualifications, financial services, accountancy and audit. Key areas addressed include regulatory approaches, enabling innovation, international and information issues.

Often the idea of creativity is put in a special box that is limited to only certain kinds of people. This is one of our great myths. I am sure that Albert Einstein, Gandhi, David Bohn, Martha Graham, Wendell Berry, Aristotle, Pablo Picasso, Billie Holiday, Steve Jobs, Vincent Van Gogh, Mozart, Socrates, Leonardo Da Vinci, Martin Luther King, Beethoven, Charles Dickens, Carl Jung, Tesla, Galileo, Thomas Edison, Ben Franklin and Michelangelo all came from different backgrounds, cultures and ways of life. What they did have in common was the ability to see or feel the dynamic interconnectedness of the flow of life.

As she describes it: “My work bridges developmental psychology, social psychology, and personality psychology, and examines the self-conceptions (or mindsets) people use to structure the self and guide their behavior. My research looks at the origins of these mindsets, their role in motivation and self-regulation, and their impact on achievement and interpersonal processes.”

Three Critical Conversations Started and Sustained by Flipped Learning

Three Critical Conversations Started and Sustained by Flipped Learning | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
The flipped learning model of instruction has begun to make the transition from an educational buzzword to a normative practice among many university instructors, and with good reason. Flipped learning provides many benefits for both faculty and students. However, instructors who use flipped learning soon find out that a significant amount of work is sometimes necessary to win students over to this way of conducting class. Even when the benefits of flipped learning are made clear to students, some of them will still resist. And to be fair, many instructors fail to listen to what students are really saying.

Most student “complaints” about flipped learning conceal important questions about teaching and learning that are brought to the surface because of the flipped environment. Here are three common issues raised by students and the conversation-starters they afford.

MIT OpenCourseware published all MIT course materials online and made them available globally. Currently, more than 2,000 courses are posted on the site, which has had more than 125 million visitors, helping to ensure that MIT remains the most searched university online.

Where will technology make the biggest impact on education? This post shares nine areas, based on research, where the use of technology is making an impact.

What are the ten areas? Below is a list of the top five. Find additional information on each by clicking through to the post, as well as links to other resources.

1. Critical Thinking - In this area four kinds of thinking are discussed: Analogical, Expressive Experiential, and Problem Solving.

2. Mobile Learning

3. Access to Education

4. Continuous Feedback

5. Unlimited and Immediate Learning

Please note that the title on the post days there are ten areas, but number four is missing in the document (or there are only nine areas). I renumbered the areas above so that they are consecutive.

Matthew M.'s curator insight, March 4, 12:32 AM

This post relates to the readings because it talks about the way critical thinking is important to acquiring knowledge and how technology affects our learning. One of the significant aims of education is to produce learners who are well informed, that is to say, learners should understand ideas that are important, useful, beautiful and powerful. Another is to create learners who have the appetite the appetite to think analytically and critically, to use what they know to enhance their own lives and also to contribute to their society, culture and civilization.
