Δεν υπάρχει μόνον ένα αλλά πολλά είδη νοημοσύνης. Και όπως δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε δύο ανθρώπους με πανομοιότυπα δακτυλικά αποτυπώματα, έτσι δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε και δύο ανθρώπους με τον ίδιο συνδυασμό απ αυτά τα είδη νοημοσύνης!
Is there anything as mysterious and intriguing as the human brain? It's at the center of everything we do and everything we've created, and yet we're just beginning to understand how it works. Brain A

"It’s been 25 years since the field of neuroeducation first reared its head in academia...To celebrate the progress of this monumental discipline, we have compiled a list of the 25 most significant findings in neuroscience education over the past 25 years."
What does neurology tell us about education? This post looks at 25 discoveries over the last 25 years. Some may be new to you and remember this is a field that is changing rapidly.
Below are a few of the discoveries that are covered.
* Brain plasticity - "...the brain changes constantly as a result of learning, and remains ‘plastic’ throughout life."
* "The brain’s response to reward is influenced by expectations and uncertainty."
* "Learning involves both focused attention and peripheral attention."
For more information on these discoveries and 22 additional click through to the post. You might want to check out the 3D interactive brain that explores learning strategies. It is located at http://www.opencolleges.edu.au/informed/learning-strategies/
Some of them:
- Brain plasticity
- The discovery of mirror neurons
- Both nature and nurture affect the learning brain

Not only do LEGOs have a long history in the realm of play, they also offer endless creative opportunities and hold quite a bit of teaching and learning power. And many teachers are already harnessing that in their own classrooms.
Rien de neuf mais un descriptif associé qui peut être intéressant. J'ajouterais Eklablog, simple et sans pub.

From Jackie Gerstein's resource-rich site comes this sweet infographic depicting the skills we'd like to instill in our students. The post also includes a long, helpful list of resources for everything from how to help students develop hope, to encouraging empathy and social and emotional skills, to how to foster grit, tenacity and perseverance: an educator's guide.
Think about it: when children are young, they're encouraged almost constantly to be creative. They tell stories, play make believe and dress up, build forts, and draw pictures.

"Today we are extremely pleased to announce the launch of a teacher professional development category on Coursera. We believe that helping teachers improve their skills is an important contribution that we can make to the education of students everywhere. We are truly excited about the possibilities that having these courses available for free online, to be used independently or in a blended learning capacity, will open up for teachers, schools, and districts. "Seven leading schools of education have joined this initiative, including the College of Education, University of Washington; Curry School of Education, University of Virginia; Johns Hopkins University School of Education; Match Education’s Sposato Graduate School of Education; Peabody College of Education and Human Development, Vanderbilt University; Relay Graduate School of Education; and University of California, Irvine Extension."Additionally, we welcome a new network of educational institutions and museums, including the American Museum of Natural History; The Commonwealth Education Trust; Exploratorium; The Museum of Modern Art; and New Teacher Center."There are too many courses that I am genuinely excited about to list in this post. Here’s just a taste of them: "
This looks like it will be very important - free, high-quality, professional development for educators.

I know mathematically this isn't an infinite list, but it may be close. :)
Looks like a fantastic website and resource.

I was chatting with a friend the other day about how the business she now runs got started. The short version of the story is that she had been toying around with creating a product for awhile, but wasn’t sure if it would be feasible to scale that into a larger operation. Once she started …

"Following the visual I posted here a couple of weeks ago featuring the differences between formative and summative assessments, somebody shared with the link to this Listly list that comprises dozens of interesting web tools to create online assessments. I have already reviewed some of the tools mentioned in this list in separate posts here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning but I also found out new tools I did not know about. I am re-sharing the whole list created below and I invite you to spend some time sifting through its content. Enjoy"
This is a great list, we have used several of these in the past, but Socrative and Google Forms are our favs. I would like to throw answergarden.ch in here as well,not so mich for quizzes, but more for brainstorming and quick feedback.
Polls are great to see where students are in the learning process!
