5 minutes… — Thought Pills — Medium

5 minutes... - Thought Pills - Medium
…a day is enough to start anything.
That blog you’ve been dreaming about.
That book you always wanted to write.
That instrument you wanted to learn.
It doesn’t take more than that to get you started.
5 minutes a day is really enough to get you started.
Don’t quit your job to get started. Keep it for as long as you can. Until you get fired (which might happen sooner or later anyway).
So instead try to just carve out 5 minutes every day.
And then add one more minute every single day.
For the rest of your life.
Until one day you’ll end up only doing things you love.
Things you care about.
Look. You don’t go from 0 to 100 in a day.
First you go from 0 to 1.
And then from 1 to 2.
Until maybe one day you’ll end up at 100…

5 Apps to Transform Teaching and Personalize Learning :: Edutopia :: by Ann Feldman

5 Apps to Transform Teaching and Personalize Learning :: Edutopia :: by Ann Feldman | Arts & Education | Scoop.it
Transformation requires a journey for teachers toward great educational rewards for students. Knowing how to craft learning experiences that meld technology with the curriculum is key to crafting digital-age lessons. As digital tools are integrated seamlessly with sound pedagogical practice, a new classroom culture emerges. This is a culture focused on student-centered, personalized learning and shifting away from traditional teacher-centered classrooms. The digitally-rich lesson format below has evolved as technology has been infused into these lesson components:

Whole-group instruction
Guided practice
Independent practice

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, February 3, 1:38 PM

While statistics on VR use in K-­12 schools and colleges have yet to be gathered, the steady growth of the market is reflected in the surge of companies solely dedicated to providing schools with packaged educational curriculum, content, teacher training and technological tools to support VR­-based instruction in the classroom.

Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s curator insight, February 10, 11:44 AM

It seems we can hope to use it also in education pretty soon. 

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, February 15, 7:27 PM

The test of VR will be in the kinds of content that are created. I think we will see an explosion when we have a headset that is comfortable to wear.

11 Apps to Help You Find Your Focus — Medium | Arts & Education | Scoop.it
Sometimes, it feels impossible to focus with (seemingly) hundreds of things pulling at our attention at any given point in time. You know what we’re talking about: the “ding!” on your phone whenever you get a new text message, that annoying little red button reminding you how many new emails you’re getting, and the endless supply of content readily available for consumption on a daily basis—just to name a few.
If you’re having one of those days where you can’t seem to find your focus, these 11 apps will help you reclaim your brain and get busy working on the things that matter most (even if sometimes, that means actually getting some sleep!)

The Old Days VS New Days of Google [Infographic] | Arts & Education | Scoop.it

Today, what we say and ask Google starts to matter less and less.

 

Google tries to understand us before we even ask. It’ll morph or results based on our location, device we’re using, previous behavior, and more. It’s truly an engine of matching intent vs. matching keywords these days.

 

And, of course, that’s changed how SEOs work.

Creating is not just a 'nice' activity; it transforms, connects and empowers

Creating is not just a 'nice' activity; it transforms, connects and empowers | Arts & Education | Scoop.it

"...when we give children the time and space to make – and present them with a pile of materials – they fall to it with such a will. The appetite to make is there, even when no one speaks of it.

"Making connects the hand, eye and brain in a very special way. It’s empowering for both maker and viewer. The act of making is optimistic; it’s an act of faith. People of all ages feel better for doing it.

"Making can also be very social – conversations can meander while hands are kept busy. But it can also be very personal and give confidence to children who listen to their own internal monologue that takes place as they make in solitude.

"If we want a world full of creative, entrepreneurial thinkers, we need to enable and sustain making from a very young age. Not all of us will become sculptors or engineers or designers, but we will become more connected, rounded and creative people."

Why and how is this video worthwhile?  It's informative and it's inspirational.  It shows six very different personalities, ages and stages, who have all 'made it' doing the same job, in very different ways.  

It shows their strength of character and passion (you can call this ego, either way, it's a potency to do courageous things, and a required attribute of a great leader).  

It shows their willingness to learn from others and mistakes, to master a craft, and build a collaborative team, rather than simply collect extrinsic rewards (of which they have received oodles, anyway).  

And it shows their humility (what they're afraid of, what they have learned, and what they regret), even if some appear to have more than others.

Lawrence Krauss: We Need to Teach Kids Creative Thinking, and We’re Teaching Them the Opposite | Big Think :: Lawrence M. Krauss | Arts & Education | Scoop.it
"Education is far less about a set of facts than a way of thinking," says professor and theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss. "And therefore what I always think should be the basis of education is not answers, but questions." In this video interview, Krauss explains why it's vital for young students to be taught more than just basic skills. They need to be taught to solve the sorts of problems not conveyed on a test. An adequate curriculum could only be derived from the wisdom of experts. This is why Krauss supports the idea of a common core, although not one hinged on stringent testing. "Being able to know specifics to pass a test is not the same as being able to understand how to go about answering those questions."
