As long as youngsters feel they can learn from earlier failure its double effort may be even more productive i think

Audrey's curator insight, April 22, 3:51 PM

Start children's learning early at home.  Give them fantastic learning tools.  Select geology and earth sciences, astronomy, educational science, physics, astronomy, mathematics play resources.

 

Children can learn to summarise arguments; abstract nouns; persuasive letter writing; role-play and movement; identifying grammar structures; Comprehension.  Hundreds of  teaching resources to inspire and motivate. Inquiry based learning lets your child take a lead role in his or her own education, increasing their desire to learn and retain information.

"The following is a summary from 1,575 interviews with students, teachers and parents in the U.S., Germany and China. What we found is that students, teachers and parents agree that technology is critical to learning, but have differing opinions about how best to use it in the classroom." The information is often shown through infographics and you may find some quite surprising.

What's Going On in This Picture? Learning about Visual Thinking Strategies

What's Going On in This Picture? Learning about Visual Thinking Strategies | Education and Technology 101 | Scoop.it

The NY Times is beginning a new feature called "What's Going on in this Picture?" This post introduces Visual Thinking Strategies (V.T.S.).

"How do you make sense of what you see when you look at an image, especially if that image comes with no caption, headline, links or other clues about its origins? What can constructing meaning from an image teach you?"

While V.T.S. uses works of visual art, the NT Times will be using photojournalism and hosting an online discussion. On Monday they will post an image "with no caption, no headline and no helpful link back to an article." The goal is to answer "What's going on in this picture?" based on what you "can gather from the image itself."

VISUAL LITERACY

Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made

 

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 5:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 8:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses | Education and Technology 101 | Scoop.it

Juárez Correa didn’t know it yet, but he had happened on an emerging educational philosophy, one that applies the logic of the digital age to the classroom. That logic is inexorable: Access to a world of infinite information has changed how we communicate, process information, and think. Decentralized systems have proven to be more productive and agile than rigid, top-down ones. Innovation, creativity, and independent thinking are increasingly crucial to the global economy.

Switching roles : an investigation into the use of reverse-mentoring by students to encourage teachers' uptake of ICT in their pedagogical approach

The benefits of reverse-mentoring have not been widely explored in the literature and this study provided evidence that the programme delivered both timely and relevant professional development for the participant teachers. Also the concept of students helping their teachers to develop skills with ICT fitted well with constructivist learning theory and this helped overcome many of the barriers associated with adult learning.

Why innovation has to be just as destructive as it is productive

Why innovation has to be just as destructive as it is productive | Education and Technology 101 | Scoop.it

"Innovation must both create and destroy value, says Jeff DeGraff, a world-renowned thought leader and executive and innovation expert. He points out that most traditional wisdom and religions have figures who create the world and figures who destroy it, and that Pablo Picasso even called himself the “great destroyer” even though he was responsible for many art movements in the 20th century. 'The challenge is, until you make room for something new, there will be no opportunity to do something,' DeGraff says."
