I feel this is useful in making an area that is invited and would make students want to read. Reading has always been important, and that fact has not changed. Literacy is key to being able to survive in life, from knowing whether food contains ingredients that can cause you to have an allergic reaction to knowing when and how often to take medications.

Interesting article. Reflections…. Self worth and achievement seem to be linked together in most of Western Society. We personalise events in our life and then begin to live from our memories, gaining a false sense of identity instead of seeing it simply as a series of skills to learn. 

Takeaways: 

"people who think about their own learning, make a habit of asking questions, use what they’ve learned, teach what they’ve learned to others, and enjoy the learning process on an intrinsic level all become better learners"

"these are all strategies and habits that can be adopted through practice… The smartest, most successful people in the world wouldn’t be where they are today if they weren’t skilled learners. So let’s examine which strategies we should be perfecting and how they can serve us in the long run."

What Is Education? Insights From The World's Greatest Minds

What Is Education? Insights From The World's Greatest Minds | Early Learning | Scoop.it

"As we seek to refine and reform today’s system of education, we would do well to ask, 'What is education?' Our answers may provide insights that get to the heart of what matters for 21st century children and adults alike. It is important to step back from divisive debates on grades, standardized testing, and teacher evaluation—and really look at the meaning of education. So I decided to do just that—to research the answer to this straightforward, yet complex question. Looking for wisdom from some of the greatest philosophers, poets, educators, historians, theologians, politicians, and world leaders, I found answers that should not only exist in our history books, but also remain at the core of current education dialogue. In my work as a developmental psychologist, I constantly struggle to balance the goals of formal education with the goals of raising healthy, happy children who grow to become contributing members of families and society. Along with academic skills, the educational journey from kindergarten through college is a time when young people develop many interconnected abilities." | by Marilyn Price-Mitchell

They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

Judith Butler proposed that being is like a noun. We are a teacher is always the starting point for becoming something new. This is risky business for teachers.

Teachers require time and space to make sense of what their experiences mean suggesting that teaching and living are hermeneutic adventures.

"What tends to dull the appetite [for learning] is being force fed things that people can't see an immediately relevance in or don't have an immediate interest in it...or where they are forced to learn in situations where they are inimitable... you know, 8 hours a day, sit still, do as you're told."

101 Ways For Teachers To Be More Creative - TeachThought | Early Learning | Scoop.it

Creativity isn’t always something that just happens. It can take quite a bit of work to nurture, grow, and develop creativity, even for those who are immersed in creative and dynamic fields.

For educators, it can be even more of a challenge to inspire creativity in students or embrace your own creativity while trying to juggle academic requirements, testing, and other issues in the classroom. It may be difficult but it’s certainly not impossible, and accomplishing it can help to create a classroom environment that’s more motivational, interesting, and educational for both you and your students.

So how do you get there? Here are some tips that can help you get creative in the classroom in a variety of ways.

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education | Early Learning | Scoop.it
Armed with a set of criteria drawn from different disciplines, I identified seven separate intelligences. All human beings possess these seven intelligences, but we differ from one another in which are strong; and in any case, strength or weakness in one (say spatial intelligence) does not predict strength or weakness in another (say, interpersonal or musical intelligence).

 

I would now add a few more intelligences to the list, and others, most famously Daniel Goleman, have proposed yet other intelligences like emotional intelligence. I am no longer invested in my particular set of intelligences. For me, the important advance is that a multiplicity of intelligences has been acknowledged—wits, rather than wit.

 

In this era of succinct messaging, I’ve created a twitter-short formula: Multiple Wits and Good Grits Lead to a Success Beyond Selfies.

"Bringing technology into the classroom often winds up an awkward mash-up between the laws of Murphy and Moore: What can go wrong, will — only faster.

It’s a multi-headed challenge: Teachers need to connect with classrooms filled with distinct individuals. We all want learning to be intrinsically motivated and mindful, yet we want kids to test well and respond to bribes (er, extrinsic rewards). Meanwhile, there’s a multi-billion-dollar industry, in the US alone, hoping to sell apps and tech tools to school boards.

There may not be apps for good teaching but there are ways to think about how you use technology that will improve the classroom. This post provides 8 recommendations. They are listed below but check out the post for additional information.

1. Keep learning goals ahead of the technology.

2. Opt for the open ended.

3. Don't let tech make learning easy.

4. Take feedback seriously.

5. Stay skeptical of individualized learning - for now.

6. Bring in students interests, authentically.

7. Start conversations

8. Make it open, make it better.

There is a lot of food for thought in this post.

The feedback point is interesting. It is about information given to students relative to their learning goals. Feedback also means feedback for the teacher. What do we mean by student goals? What does this mean in relationship to curricula-as-plans. It suggests that teaching and learning are part of complex conversations (Pinar) and that the curricula-as-lived (Aoki) are important considerations.
