Allowing kids to deeply engage with a project they are passionate about also helps produce more positive memories of school, the reason the Maker Movement is so exciting is it can re-energize the classroom and it can make high quality memories of education.

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn?

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn? | Education & ESL | Scoop.it

Are mistakes a part of the learning process? If they are, what does this say about our current education system? This post explores these ideas, asking the following questions and following each with a number of responses that explores each question in greater detail. The first section has two questions:

* Why are mistakes important to achieve engagement and learning?

* Why do we avoid mistakes in our current model?

The second section, Turning Mistakes into Learning Opportunities asks one question:

* How can we use learning errors to our advantage?

At the beginning of this post the author speaks of James Joyce, and also does so at the end where she states (referring to Joyce) "a true genius sees all learning as an opportunity to improve and discover. Errors are taken at will. In making mistakes, we can reach new heights and find our true genius." Will schools move in this direction?

The Top 5 Translation Mistakes of 2012

The Top 5 Translation Mistakes of 2012 | Education & ESL | Scoop.it
The biggest translation and interpretation mistakes of 2012.

As another year comes to an end it is instructive to take a look back at some of the biggest headlines of 2012, and, of course, the translations and localization errors that accompanied those events. The need for organizations to have translations proofread by a native speaker becomes obvious when a seemingly small language slip has far-reaching consequences. From promoting the Olympic Games to registering voters, 2012 was not lacking in translation errors. 

Here’s a list (that no company wants to be on) of the top five noteworthy lapses in translation and localization in 2012:
