Personalized Learning or Personalized Schooling? - DreamBox Learning

Personalized Learning or Personalized Schooling? - DreamBox Learning | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it
Our experience with this class was very personalized. And it was very personal. In education literature, the terms Personalized Learning and Personalization are being increasingly used and discussed, and disagreements about Personalized Learning and its value to students have resulted in several blog posts and debates in the past month. Audrey Watters links to eight of them and adds her perspective here, and Mike Caulfield furthered the conversation here. I agree with others that we need to define these terms better, and my experience with the hospital birth class is a useful and illustrative reference point....Read more ›

New Research: Students Benefit from Learning That Intelligence Is Not Fixed | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

"Teaching students that intelligence can grow and blossom with effort – rather than being a fixed trait they’re just born with – is gaining traction in progressive education circles.

7 reasons educators secretly fear creativity

7 reasons educators secretly fear creativity | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.


They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things.


They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.


Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. - Apple Inc "Think Different" ad.

The 7 principles of highly effective innovation culture change programs | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

Nothing is more constant than change. Furthermore, the speed of change is accelerating. So for instance, the global knowledge is growing exponentially, disruptive megatrends are shaping the innovation agendas and new approaches for capturing value by innovation  are becoming mainstream. Thus, new realities for innovation management are emerging and firms are forced to change their innovation management ever faster. A large study from 2013 showed that only 1 in 2 major change programs succeed. In this 2-part article series, innovation-3’s Frank Mattes shares his deep experience in designing and implementing innovation culture change initiatives. You will find ideas and inspiration about how your firm can increase the chances for success in changing innovation culture.
