The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human-Book

The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human-Book | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

The universe is made of stories, not atoms,” poet Muriel Rukeyser memorably asserted, and Harvard sociobiologist E. O. Wilson recently pointed to the similarity between innovators in art and science, both of whom he called “dreamers and storytellers.” Stories aren’t merely essential to how we understand the world — they are how we understand the world.

John Hunter on the World Peace Game: TEDTalk

John Hunter puts all the problems of the world on a 4'x5' plywood board -- and lets his 4th-graders solve them. At TED2011, he explains how his World Peace Game engages schoolkids, and why the complex lessons it teaches -- spontaneous, and always surprising -- go further than classroom lectures can.

A Graphic Syllabus Can Bring Clarity to Course Structure | Faculty Focus

A Graphic Syllabus Can Bring Clarity to Course Structure | Faculty Focus | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

By Maryellen Weimer

 

"While editing a manuscript chapter I ran across a related idea attributed to Linda Nilson. To encourage student thinking about the overall structure of a course right from the start, why not include a concept map or mind map in the syllabus? When I looked at Linda’s work (in the two references listed below) she actually advocates what she calls a “graphic syllabus,” described as a “flowchart, graphic organizer, or diagram of the schedule and organization of course topics, sometimes with tests, assignments, and major activities included.” (2003, p. 31). Her book on the topic contains all sorts of amazing examples which aren’t designed to replace traditional syllabi text but to supplement it. If you are a visual learner and good with graphics, there’s a real opportunity to get creative here."

Twitter and Canadian Educators

Twitter and Canadian Educators | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

An emerging group of leaders in Canadian education has attracted thousands of followers. They’ve made Twitter an extension of their lives, delivering twenty or more tweets a day that can include, for example, links to media articles, research, new ideas from education bloggers, or to their own, or simply a personal thought. The power of Twitter is not Twitter itself; it’s the connections it facilitates. Those connections can break the sense of professional isolation that many teachers feel within the walls of their own schools while reinvigorating their lesson plans by exposing them to a daily global idea exchange.

Trading Classroom Authority for Online Community | Online Learning | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it
Hybrid Pedagogy is an academic and networked journal on teaching and technology that combines the strands of critical and digital pedagogy to arrive at the best social and civil uses of technology and digital media in education.

 

Consider four core values for the classroom in general and the online classroom: show up, be curious, collaborate, and contribute. The online classroom is more student-directed in the sense that students are more "on their own" than they are in a traditional classroom.
