Maya Angelou on Identity and the Meaning of Life ~ brain pickings

Maya Angelou on Identity and the Meaning of Life ~ brain pickings | Creative Arts K-6 | Scoop.it

"Life loves the liver of it. You must live and life will be good to you."

by Maria Popova

 

"The light of the world has grown a little dimmer with the loss of the phenomenal Maya Angelou, but her legacy endures as a luminous beacon of strength, courage, and spiritual beauty. Angelou’s timeless wisdom shines with unparalleled light in a 1977 interview by journalist Judith Rich, found in Conversations with Maya Angelou (public library) — the same magnificent tome that gave us the beloved author’s conversation with Bill Moyers on freedom — in which Angelou explores issues of identity and the meaning of life."

You may remember the infographic on visual content that I shared a couple of weeks ago. "The Visual Web: A Love Story" featured some insightful stats to prove that effective content marketing must include visuals. Here is another one on the same topic. Created by Column Five, it is a great example of what an infographic should look like: simple, well laid-out, and most importantly, appealing.

"Google Docs is a powerful word processing tool that many schools have adopted. As it’s similar to Microsoft Word and other word processing tools, most of its features are intuitive to use. However, in addition to completing many of the functions of a traditional word processor, Google Docs provides even more capabilities that can be invaluable to educators. Here are ten tricks that can make your life easier with Google Docs:"

Where to Start When Starting a Blog ~ NY Times | Creative Arts K-6 | Scoop.it

Q. There are so many platforms for blogging out there. Can you suggest a few?

A. Start your search by thinking about the type of blog you want to have and how much control you want to have over the look and domain name. Free blogging services usually have a set of standard templates and easy controls to get started, but the design is usually not terribly flexible. Paid services often offer more design control, feature management and tools to block spam and other unwanted messages in the comments section.- more

Beyond Current Horizons : Creativity in the school | Technology, children, schools and families

Beyond Current Horizons : Creativity in the school | Technology, children, schools and families | Creative Arts K-6 | Scoop.it

By Anna Craft

 

"During the last part of the 20th century and early part of the 21st, creativity has been seen to be increasingly significant in education, within cultural policy discussions, starting with the landmark advice of the National Advisory Committee on Creative and Cultural Education (NACCCE, 1999). Convened by Sir Ken Robinson, NACCCE synthesised empirical evidence from researchers such as Woods and Jeffrey (1996), Craft (1997), and Harland et al (1998) who, during the 1990s, had distinguished between creative teaching (ie creativity in pedagogy) and teaching for creativity (with a focus on the development of creativity in the learner). The key findings from this work were that ‘creative learning’ involves children experiencing innovation in the classroom, control over activities and their evolution, together with a sense of relevance and ownership in their learning – and that these four features are also characteristics of creative teaching (Jeffrey and Woods, 2003)."

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens ~ Edutopia

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens ~ Edutopia | Creative Arts K-6 | Scoop.it

by Patrick Waters

 

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects.

 

"Making holds a number of opportunities and challenges for a teacher. Making, especially to educators and administrators unfamiliar with it, can seem to lack the academic rigor needed for a full-fledged place in an educational ecosystem. However, project-based learning has already created a framework for Making in the classroom. Let's see how Making could work when placed inside a PBL curriculum unit."


Via Jim Lerman
Margaret Bradley's insight:

Making is and always has been intrinsic to Creative Arts pedagogy Students experience deep learning in all art forms including Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Arts while Making, Appreciating, Listening, Composing and Performing.

How Can We Connect Teachers to Connected Learning? ~ Digital Is

How Can We Connect Teachers to Connected Learning? ~ Digital Is | Creative Arts K-6 | Scoop.it

by David Quinn


"I realized that if teachers were to get on board, I’d have to make it concrete. I had another attempt to share Connected Learning with Rhode Island teachers at the Highlander Institute’s Blended Learning Conference. I reached out to Christina Cantrill for permission to use an example from Teaching in the Connected Learning Classroom and she was kind enough to oblige. The first example was Larissa Pahomov’s 2Fer project where students wrote two-page position papers that were peer reviewed in Google Docs and then shared publicly on a website."

Secrets to Creating a Positive School Culture In a BYOD Environment | Digital Learning Environments

Secrets to Creating a Positive School Culture In a BYOD Environment | Digital Learning Environments | Creative Arts K-6 | Scoop.it

by Eric Sheninger

 

"I hear a great deal of conversation in the education world about transforming school culture.  I have even added to that dialogue on numerous occasions.  It wasn’t until now that I realized the most significant piece to the change and transformation process is our students.  This most important stakeholder group is often left out of this conversation.  So what are the secrets to transforming school culture? Make it a student-centered process, give up control, respect their ideas then implement them, and get out of the way. For it is they, our students, who ultimately transform school culture. We are just playing in their sandbox."
