Learning Is Non-Linear. Why Not Curriculum?

Learning Is Non-Linear. Why Not Curriculum? | Education & Homeschooling | Scoop.it

"Before talking about linear learning, I need to firstly point out, for the uninitiated that one of the issues raised by heutagogy is that dictionary and psychological definitions of learning are a little out of date. More recent neuroscience evidence has led me to think that learning can be thought of in at least two levels. There are probably more but two will suffice for now. On the one hand is the acquisition of knowledge and skills or what are better known as competencies. On the other is deeper learning, when we make associations in our brains that lead to Ah Ha! moments or new insights."

Google Education launches Google Educator Groups ~ Edukwest

Google Education launches Google Educator Groups ~ Edukwest | Education & Homeschooling | Scoop.it

by Kay Alexander

 

"Google Education announced another service targeting teachers across the globe. Google Educator Groups (GEG) is a program that wants to support communities of educators, online as well as offline and aiming to help teachers to learn, share, and inspire each other to meet the needs of their students through technology solutions, both in the classroom and beyond.

 

Key Takeaway

"Google Educator Groups are essentially personal learning networks (PLN) that use Google+ as its backbone. The local GEGs are organized by volunteers and entirely independent from Google.

 

"At launch there are 51 GEGs across the world with USA, Romania and the Czech Republic having the most local groups established. GEGs offer different activities to learn and share with like minded educators. Teachers connect online via discussions and Hangouts or in the real world through meetups, workshops and other events."

MA: Congressman Edward P. Boland Scholarships ease education cost for students | Education & Homeschooling | Scoop.it

"SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The late Massachusetts U.S. Congressman Edward Boland’s philosophy was to give back and focus on education. That’s now his legacy through a scholarship in his name, presented each year at the Springfield elementary school, also in his name.

“All the young people that were around him, he insisted they improve themselves by education, so it was a really big thing for him so we’re trying to continue that,” said Mary Boland, Congressman Boland’s widow.

In regards to a recent surge in violence, Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno said investing in education is key to improving public safety."...
