Education vs Learning - What Exactly is the Difference? - EdTechReview™ (ETR)

Education vs Learning - What Exactly is the Difference? - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Scooping Literacy: Diversified Learning | Scoop.it
Surely learning and formal education are not entirely the same thing? But what exactly is the difference?

Terry Doherty's insight:

Nice comparisons and contrasts to make understanding easier.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 7, 6:44 PM

There are two intertwined definitions of education and only one is included here. Educare is leading students out of child. Educere is allowing students to gain control over their learning and realizing they have support when needed. We have eliminated the latter replacing it with the instrumental version called learning which is what School is about.

How to Train Your Mind to Think Critically and Form Your Own Opinions

How to Train Your Mind to Think Critically and Form Your Own Opinions | Scooping Literacy: Diversified Learning | Scoop.it
"Critical Thinking" may sound like an obnoxious buzzword from liberal arts schools, but it's actually a useful skill. Critical thinking just means absorbing important information and using that to form a decision or opinion of your own--rather than just spouting off what you hear others say. This doesn't always come naturally to us, but luckily, it's something you can train yourself to do better.

 

Critical thinking doesn't end. The more knowledge you cultivate, the better you'll become at thinking about it. It's navel gazing in that you're constantly thinking about thinking, but the end result is a brain that automatically forms better arguments, focused ideas, and creative solutions to problems.

A very practical description with examples of ways to become better in your critical thinking. A good primer for sense making as part of the PKM framework.

Terry Doherty's curator insight, February 15, 8:00 PM

"Navel gazing." I haven't heard that term in ages ... and don't do it near enough.

 

Todd Bratcher's curator insight, February 18, 6:46 PM

Critical thinking means to ask questions that need to be asked. it involves finding the significance in every piece of information you come across and formulating opinions and plans of action. You have to ask the tough questions and the best one to start with is "Why?" Critical thinking is about being curious and allowing your sense of curiosity to follow the "why".Often times following the why will lead to finding the truths and finding lies. Critical thinking is also about honing in ones BS detector. Take time to analyze information before accepting it's credibility.

Critical thinking skills are vital for kids to succeed as they progree through school. Having to decide what app fits their requirements is part of that learning.
