This is very informative for anyone who speaks in public. The moral of this Slideshare is to keep quiet about your internal dialogue. When you speak, everything you say should benefit your audience. When you ask the audience to sympathize with you, you take away from their experience. Sharing stories and taking questions is great, apologizing for being unprepared and talking about yourself is not. Great article.

Meet Pecha Kucha, the Japanese presentations changing everything about PowerPoint | Teaching Visual Art | Scoop.it

As I prepare for my presentation this week at the Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC) on “Presenting with Pecha Kucha,” my colleagues have repeatedly asked me, “What is Pecha Kucha?” The short answer is it’s a great presentation style that gets students thinking and learning, not reading slides.

Like other comments on this scoop, I really like this article, especially items #1 and #2.  I really like those options because they are unconventional options that I still think would provide an appropriate level of challenge for the students as well as provide an alternative form of just a simple pencil and paper exam.  I think option #1 is more feasible for elementary school because it would allow students to work on skills that are more age appropriate like consolidation of information and looking for quality source material.

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives Digital University's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.

Kids Speak Out on Student Engagement ~ Edutopia ~ by Heather Wolpert-Gawron

Kids Speak Out on Student Engagement ~ Edutopia ~ by Heather Wolpert-Gawron | Teaching Visual Art | Scoop.it
A while back, I was asked, "What engages students?" Sure, I could respond, sharing anecdotes about what I believed to be engaging, but I thought it would be so much better to lob that question to my own eighth graders. The responses I received from all 220 of them seemed to fall under 10 categories, representing reoccurring themes that appeared again and again. So, from the mouths of babes, here are my students' answers to the question: "What engages students?"

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

Excellent observations for we educators, from our students, about how to engage them in their own learning. Most of this article is direct quotes from 8th graders.

The colourful propaganda of Xinjiang | Teaching Visual Art | Scoop.it

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 13, 3:11 PM

China does not have a good track record of dealing with ethnic and religious minorities and the murals that can be seen in Xinjiang are a testament to that fact.  This has led to many Muslims in Western China being attracted to more radical ideas.  While I certainly don't condone radicalism nor China's heavy-handed tactics, I am fascinated by the cultural messages that are strategically being placed in the landscape to influence the politics and culture of the region.

Kendra King's curator insight, April 3, 7:37 PM

This art seems like a logical extension of the government’s use of power although I personally don’t agree with their abuse of power. In China the government will uses its authority to monitor the personal activities of its citizens as demonstrated by the pictures dictating what people should and shouldn’t wear. When the citizens don’t follow through with China’s rule, violence typically happens. In fact, a fair deal of the paintings showed violence (i.e. the tank running people over). I actually find those depictions more offensive and disturbing than any of the other pictures because the end result is clearly that of dath rather than disapproval. Now, I understand that some places need to be ruled with an iron fist (i.e. Iraq), however I don’t really see how threatening people with more violence solves the issue of extremism. If anything, doesn’t this just give the extremist more of a reason to dislike the government? As such, is the government just creating more resentment that will lead to demonstrations in the future? I say this because eventually when a local population is subject to such horrible treatment, there isn't much else to lose and very little reason no to fight back.
