The Surprising Truth About Learning in Schools | Will Richardson | TEDxWestVancouverED

We know how to help kids develop into powerful learners. Now, we just need to make that happen in schools. "A parent of two teen-agers, Will Richardson ha
deniseroberts's insight:
I agree wholeheartedly with what Will Richardson shares in this TED Talk.  Educators should live their beliefs.  What do we believe learning should look like in schools, the community and with students?  We have to get out of our own way and make that happen.

The Maker movement continues to gain traction in communities, schools, libraries and school districts nationally.  This article focuses on how to introduce the Maker movement into your community.  It is a movement that does not fit neatly into STEM.  It is inquiry-based, project driven and fits into all career and college ready curriculum.

Juan Miguel Galeas's curator insight, December 23, 2015 5:43 PM

¿Uber y Tesla son empresas que han provocado disrupción en sus mercados? La mayoría diría que sí. La respuesta realmente es no. Una de las palabras más usadas y menos entendidas es la innovación disruptiva o #disrupción, debido a que la mayoría que la usa no ha leído el artículo de Clayton Christensen, quien acuñó el término en 1995. "Disrupción" se refiere exclusivamente al proceso en el que una empresa explota un modelo de negocio o tecnología en un nicho desatendido por las empresas establecidas del sector, creando un producto sin las cualidades completas de los líderes, pero con una ventaja de precio que les permite ir ganando mercado. A través de mejoras sucesivas de la tecnología o el modelo, esta nueva forma de hacer las cosas empieza a ganar momento y llega a un punto donde es lo mínimamente buena como para que los usuarios de los productos habituales se arriesguen a probarla. La difusión de ese proceso inicia un proceso de traslado de clientes de las marcas establecidas a la nueva. Se ha producido una #disrupción.  La próxima vez que escuche a alguien usándola pregúntele si conoce a profundidad su significado. Haremos un favor a nuestra comunidad emprendedora e innovadora afinando mejor los conceptos para un ecosistema más potente y sano. Les dejamos el artículo de Christensen revisado por el mismo autor y actualizado en los cánones del 2015.  #GaleasJupiter
