WOW! It's up from 10 years old. So I am seriously thinking about to buy it for myself and playing around with it ;) I was playing around with LEGO in my youth and I recommend it as it is one of the BEST ways to boost Creativity in kids!

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!
Attention is a rare currency in today's digitally focused world. It is also the price we pay for being constantly connected. Being repeatedly exposed to various digital stimuli makes our attention wanders in different ways and subsequently lose focus and direction.

"This special issue of the eLearning Papers is based on the contributions made to the EMOOCS 2014 conference jointly organized by the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and P.A.U. Education. The success of this conference with more than 450 participants demonstrates that MOOCs are at the beginning of a wave and a first step towards opening up education.
Why are MOOCs innovative? They provide alternative ways for students to gain new knowledge according to a given curriculum. MOOCs can also enhance learners’ ability to think creatively to select and adapt a paradigm to solve the problem at hand. These are the main findings of a case study on the Discrete Optimization MOOC on Coursera.
Many higher education institutions are asking their staff to run high quality MOOCs in a race to gain visibility in an education market that is increasingly abundant with choice. Nevertheless, designing and running a MOOC from scratch is not an easy task and requires a high workload. Professors from Universidad Carlos III in Madrid offer a set of recommendations that will be useful to inexperienced professors. An MIT study also gives key findings on optimizingvideo consumption across courses.
What are the defining characteristics of a MOOC? Can we categorically differentiate a MOOC from other types of online courses? This is one of the central questions of the debate on the future of MOOCs. An UNED study proposes aquality model based on both course structure and certification process. Most of the debate around the future of MOOCs focuses on learners’ attitudes such as attrition or a lack of satisfaction that leads to disengagement or dropout. AStanford study shows how educational interventions targeting such risk factorscan help reduce dropout rates, as long as the dropouts are predicted early and accurately enough. A French researcher shows that learners who interact on theforums and assess peer assignments are more likely to complete the course. Another Stanford study tested different approaches to measure the extent to which online learners experience a sense of community in current implementations of online courses. In a similar context, a German team of researchers studied the collaborative endeavour of planning and implementing a cMOOC.
One of the key elements of the discussion around MOOCs is their relevance to students in their respective cultural settings. A Leicester University researchercontemplates whether activities, tasks, assignments and/or projects can be applicable to students’ own settings; for example, giving students the freedom to choose the setting of their projects and the people with whom they work. These questions are central to making MOOCs truly accessible to all."
Translate any word from English to more than 30 other European languages, on a map
This is a fantastic resource for seeing how words have changed according to geography. Type a word into the box and see it translated directly on to a map in more than 30 languages. Great for teaching kids about regions of language, or asking how they think a certain country came to use a certain word.

Curating is about finding and selecting information in order to learn about a subject. Youngsters can be encouraged to do this pre-school. This motivational 21st century skill can be encouraged at home. with educational games toys and and books which stimulates interest. For example children can learn about science by interacting with Chemistry Lab; Horrible Science - explosive experiments; Newton's Cradle and Science Museum. By the time they get to school they are already full of curiosity and ready to increase their knowledge. Audrey curating for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk
By Robin Good,
Here's a short first-hand report highlighting how an 8th grade social studies class teacher (Terri Inloes) has fully leveraged the content curation potential to let her students dive, discover and make sense of topics (in this case social reform movements) that they had not studied before. All by themselves.
Here the steps taken to make this happen:
a) By using the Question Formulation Technique, the teacher prepared pairs of photographs representing each of the reform movements, one picture dating back to the late 19th century, and another representing where that social reform movement stands in today’s society.
b) After checking out all of the photos, students settled on the pair of pictures that most caught their interest.
c) They brainstormed and refined a set of specific questions, and then shared their thinking with the class. d) With the feedback received they selected the topic which they would curate.
e) At this point students planned their research strategies. By using 5 different graphic organizers from the book Q Tasks, by Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, students were allowed to choose the one that they thought would help them the most in planning their keyword search strategies.
f) Students were assigned WordPress blogs and provided basic instructions on how to use them to
curate and publish their research work.
g) Discovery and real learning kicked in as students proceeded in collaborative groups to research and document their chosen topic.

Highly recommended. 9/10

Our brains, neuroscientists warn, are developing new circuits with a big impact on non-digital reading
We have more news about why reading is important- to develop the deep reading part of our brains.
VINCI’s model combines hands-on, experiential learning with software that identifies early learning gaps—helping to target instruction.
For instance, the school will use a structured Montessori approach for teaching some concepts, while for others, it will adopt the Reggio Emilia style of learning, in which students explore an activity on their own—leading to creativity and self-discovery.

"I have been sharing several visuals on Bloom's Taxonomy over the last couple of years but I never came across a graphic that captures the essence of the three versions of Bloom's taxonomy as the one below. Actually, Bloom's taxonomy comes only into two versions, the original which was created by a committee of educators chaired by Benjamin Bloom sometime in the 1950s of last century. During the 1990s another group of educators and cognitive psychologists led by Lorin Anderson ( a former student of Bloom) updated the original version to make it convenient with the learning needs of the 21st century."
The digital Bloom's will likely continue to evolve like the original one has over time. That is essential in moving our learning and thinking ahead.
Great side by side graphic of Bloom's original, revised, and digital taxonomies.
