Malcolm Gladwell: Albert O. Hirschman and the Power of Failure | Education Game Changers | Scoop.it
Hirschman made his arguments without mathematical formulas or complex models. His subject was economics, but his spirit was literary.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, June 19, 2013 10:55 PM

Creativity.........and learning...........comes via mistakes, failures and roadblocks.  Some people avoid them; others embrace them.  

 

"Creativity always comes as a surprise to us; therefore we can never count on it and we dare not believe in it until it has happened. In other words, we would not consciously engage upon tasks whose success clearly requires that creativity be forthcoming. Hence, the only way in which we can bring our creative resources fully into play is by misjudging the nature of the task, by presenting it to ourselves as more routine, simple, undemanding of genuine creativity than it will turn out to be."

 

" People don’t seek out challenges, he went on. They are “apt to take on and plunge into new tasks because of the erroneously presumed absence of a challenge—because the task looks easier and more manageable than it will turn out to be.”"

 

This, I believe, is a critical life mistake:  fearing failure; fearing challenge; fearing obstacles.  

 

From M. Scott Peck:  

 

“Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”

 

“We must be willing to fail and to appreciate the truth that often "Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived.” 
― M. Scott Peck

What a wonderful way to help students with homework, allow students to collaboratively create something, or conduct an online short class with small groups! No writing necessary so no problem with Hebrew typing, but you can draw, write and discuss.

A vast collection of PechaKucha 20x20 presentations that may be a great source of inspiration for learning how to do it and creating one's own presentation.

The site hosts presentations in more than 20 languages from events in a huge number of cities all around the world.

PechaKucha is a fantastic activity for students who need to practice their speaking skills. Why not organize a PechaKucha event in your school?

David Bevington's curator insight, April 13, 2013 7:17 PM

PechaKucha show digital literacy and act as inspiration.

Why Teachers Are Trying Out Apple TV In The Classroom - Edudemic

Why Teachers Are Trying Out Apple TV In The Classroom - Edudemic | Education Game Changers | Scoop.it

"Apple TV is a little black box that can work miracles in a classroom. Built largely for entertaining purposes by Apple, Apple TV is used increasingly in the classroom by educators who primarily want to take advantage of the mirroring capabilities of the device. For those who are not familiar with the term “mirroring”, simply put, a key feature in Apple devices called “AirPlay” can literally mirror or project your device’s screen (iPod/iPad/iPhone), via an LCD projector that is connected to the Apple TV. All you need aside from an Apple TV is an iPad 2 or newer, an LCD projector, and then, the sky is the limit."

18+ Videos Suggested for Back to School Faculty Meetings and other educational audiences

18+ Videos Suggested for Back to School Faculty Meetings and other educational audiences | Education Game Changers | Scoop.it

By Jonathan Martin

 

"This post could be almost infinite: there is most certainly an extraordinary array of options for videos which expand educators’ understandings and inspire advances in 21st century learning. But curation is about choice and selection, and while I know I will leave out many, I thought I’d offer up a set of 15 of my favorites for your consideration for video screening at at back-to-school or beginning-of-the-year faculty meetings (and/or parent and board meetings).

 

"I’ve starred those that might also serve as useful and engaging videos to share with students at back to school or other assemblies.

 

"I am sure every reader will have their own opinions about the videos I’ve left off this list, and please: add them below using the comment box, or, post yourself your own set and share the link from this post to your own."

 

A wonderful list. You are sure to find something valuable here. -JL
