What Japanese history lessons leave out

What Japanese history lessons leave out | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it
Twentieth Century history is one of the most controversial subjects in the Japanese school curriculum, reports Mariko Oi.
アーサー's insight:

"Our system has been creating young people who get annoyed by all the complaints that China and South Korea make about war atrocities because they are not taught what they are complaining about," she said.
Without knowing these debates, it is extremely difficult to grasp why recent territorial disputes with China or South Korea cause such an emotional reaction among our neighbours.

Sugata Mitra: Build a School in the Cloud | Video on TED.com

Onstage at TED2013, Sugata Mitra makes his bold TED Prize wish: Help me design the School in the Cloud, a learning lab in India, where children can explore and learn from each other -- using resources and mentoring from the cloud.
アーサー's insight:

Mitra's idea is the perfect companion for p4c. Like Lipman's caravan I'd imagine P4C caravans driving around even the most remote areas with teaching materials on board and the best possible wireless Internet connection to create COIs and train teachers wherever needed ( and of course a person who pays for the whole project-->if that kind of person is reading this contact me at arthur(at)bimh.org ).

Personal Learning Networks: Knowledge Sharing as Democracy | Collaboration | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

Personal Learning Networks: Knowledge Sharing as Democracy | Collaboration | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it
Hybrid Pedagogy is an academic and networked journal of teaching and technology that combines the strands of critical and digital pedagogy to arrive at the best social and civil uses of technology and digital media in education.
アーサー's insight:

"Underlying the development of a PLN is the need for individual learners to be able to have the capacity for self-direction, which requires a higher level of learning maturity—an absence of which may represent a barrier for a percentage of adults to learn in this way. Also crucially important for networked learning is the level of development of individuals’ digital and webliteracies in order for members to optimally filter out ‘noise’ and contribute to the health of the network. Although approaches to and experiences when establishing a PLN may vary, individuals seeking to build one may wish to first self-assess their own abilities to learn and share within networks before seeking out others with similar interests."

アーサー's insight:

From 38:02 Said talks about how educational systems need to be 'denationalised'. The 'cry for tradition' is an approach used by conservatives to maintain a We/Other distinction that many countries still, consciously or unconsciously, perpetuate in their educational systems.

What happened in the rest of the world in 1066?

What happened in the rest of the world in 1066? | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it

The problem with learning history by key dates and moments is that it gives us a spotlit view of the past - bright stars of major events twinkling against a giant - but dark and mysterious - night sky of history. As a result we lose sense of the context of major events, and the ways in which our history - and our world - has been, and still is, connected.

Thinking critically on critical thinking: why scientists' skills need to spread

Thinking critically on critical thinking: why scientists' skills need to spread | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it

Critical thinking is a reflective and analytical style of thinking, with its basis in logic, rationality, and synthesis. It means delving deeper and asking questions like: why is that so? Where is the evidence? How good is that evidence? Is this a good argument? Is it biased? Is it verifiable? What are the alternative explanations?

Critical thinking moves us beyond mere description and into the realms of scientific inference and reasoning. This is what enables discoveries to be made and innovations to be fostered.

Searching for the next da Vinci

Searching for the next da Vinci | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it
Art was once divorced from business and industry. But now, the world of science is struggling to find creative thinkers, while corporate culture is crying out for designers and visionaries.
アーサー's insight:

"But over the last few decades art and science have become separated. Schools have emphasised the importance of STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, while art has been seen as a luxury, the first subject to be axed in an age of austerity."
