YES! This is something I've been saying all along. If not big programming languages, at least the basics of HTML so that they understand how websites are built and understand content strategy in relation to digital output, along with all that big data and analytics stuff. Education systems--please listen!

Using more of your brain is a good thing.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 13, 3:29 PM

Simple and effective! I like the four different components, especially 3 and 4. We sometimes focus too much on 1 and 2. Making it "Real" is important as it helps to see how things will actually unfold. Making it "Satisfying" speaks to how we sometimes make plans that fulfill the "Get it done" category but do not fulfill the deeper connections.

I'm catching up with some articles I looked at a while ago and wanted to share. This is one of them. I'm a remote worker for the most part. I had to start commuting 50 miles each way once a week, which isn't too bad, just this calendar year. I wanted to share this info, as I agree with several of the main points, but also save for myself if I find myself someday looking for another position (which isn't happening soon, since it looks like my contract is going to be extended for a third year!). I hope this is helpful, as it seems to me that technical communicators would be great remote workers. --techcommgeekmom

College admission requirements: the points to have to take care

College admission requirements: the points to have to take care | College Admissions | Scoop.it

A college admission essay should not be too short so that it seems incomplete and incompetently written; it should be too lengthy either that seems to be too exaggerated for an introduction. Ideally it should be short, crispy, and at the same time informative. In one word it should a professionally described personal profile.

Wiley: Interactive Open Educational Resources: A Guide to Finding, Choosing, and Using What's Out There to Transform College Teaching - John D. Shank | College Admissions | Scoop.it

Sponsored by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), this one-of-a-kind book demonstrates the best tools, resources, and techniques for discovering, selecting, and integrating interactive open educational resources (OERs) into the teaching and learning process. The author examines many of the best repositories and digital library websites for finding high quality materials, explaining in depth the best practices for effectively searching these repositories and the various methods for evaluating, selecting, and integrating the resources into the instructor’s curriculum and course assignments, as well as the institution’s learning management system.

I just received the author's copy from JB - nice to finally hold it in my hands. A lot of hard work went in to it, but if it helps faculty and librarians find and integrate these high quality resources into their courses it will all be worth it. JB did a great job with the cover of the book and thanks to ACRL for co-sponsoring this first of its kind book.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, July 15, 9:20 AM

I saw this courtesy of Colum McAndrew.  Oh, I really hope that more educators in the US get this message, because this is the message that we need to give our kids. My son is learning different, so he doesn't usually do well in standardized tests, even though certain allowances are made (like extra time, etc.) so he can try to complete them. He's actually a rather bright boy, and he has rather low self-esteem, so I'm constantly trying to remind him that he's more than a test (just like adults are more than their resumes).  I, too, didn't do well in standardized tests as a kid, yet I did well enough in school. (Never took the GRE for grad school, yet had a 4.0 GPA, which should say something!) 

 

US education system--please wake up, and read this, and learn from it! We need to bring up kids who are more confident in whatever skills they have, even if they are not measurable or conventional.
