I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing

I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing | Education: A Sweeping look | Scoop.it
For years, I kept hearing how awesome Evernote was: how it could store everything you possibly needed, make it available everywhere, and how scores of people couldn't live without it. I tried it multiple times, and never saw the appeal until now.

"Together with a whole network of media researchers, creators and students we will:- learn storytelling basics such as antagonist/protagonist relationships, narrative/narrated time, ...- have a look at exciting current media projects- analyze how they are designed and executed based on aforementioned basics- and discuss how (and if) new online tools and formats change the way stories are told and perceived.The 8-chapter course starts on October 25th, 2013 and ends on December 20th, 2013.It will offer weekly video material, lessons, interviews and tasks on the following topics (not necessarily in this order):- storytelling basics- serial formats (on the TV, web and beyond)- storytelling in role-playing games- interactive storytelling in video games- transmedia storytelling- alternate-reality gaming- augmented reality and location-based storytelling- the role of tools, interfaces and information architectures in current storytelling.Our first Storytelling-MOOC will focus on fictional formats."Our goal is to inspire and help understand. To broaden our horizon of what is and might be possible and what has already been attempted, and what has succeeded or even failed - and why.In several little tasks you'll analyze and practice storytelling on your own and in teams."

"What recent research is telling us and what The Future Project founders Kanya Balakrishna and Andrew Mangino are betting on is that dreams inspire learning - not the sort of rote, superficial learning that will help students pass state standardized tests but then disintegrate, but real learning that inspires deep, meaningful, life-changing mastery and purpose. Learning that inspires positive change both for the individual and their community."

Harper's Makes the Case Against Algebra 2

Harper's Makes the Case Against Algebra 2 | Education: A Sweeping look | Scoop.it

by Mark Walsh

Summary by Carnegie Perspectives

 

"Harper's Magazine weighs in on the debate over expanding Algebra 2 to all high school students. "Wrong Answer: The case against Algebra II," by the novelist Nicholson Baker, argues that the course should not be forced on mathematics-hating students or required for college. Students, he writes in the September issue, "are forced, repeatedly, to stare at hairy, square-rooted, polynomialed horseradish clumps of mute symbology that irritates them, that stop them in their tracks, that they can't understand." "The homework is unrelenting, the algorithms get longer and trickier, the quizzes keep coming," Baker writes. "Sooner or later, many of them hit the wall. They fail the course and have to take it again. And then again." He examines the textbook Algebra 2 Common Core, from Pearson, and concludes it is "a highly efficient engine for the creation of math rage: a dead scrap heap of repellent terminology, a collection of spiky, decontextualized, multistep mathematical black-box techniques ..."
