To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Collaboration | Collaborative Learning Communities | Educational tools and ICT | Scoop.it
Creating “Collaborative Learning Communities”

“It is essential to view learning as a total community responsibility,” he says, and to expect no short cuts. Children need to be integrated, fully contributing members of the broader community, so they can feel useful and valued. (It is not just the children who need this, he adds; healthy communities also need children.)

On a practical level, the most powerful lever for change, Abbott says, is people coming together to “rethink the role of community in the learning process,” agreeing how to divide up responsibilities among professional teachers and other community members, and then launching small pilot projects that are true to their new vision. These efforts will build on each other, he says, and large-scale change will follow.

The competencies are now the core of the education that young learners require in order to shape our emerging new paradigm and within competencies the virtues are the bedrock that we met expose those learners and ourselves to. MT

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 26, 2014 9:00 PM

This infographic, byt Mia MacMeekin, looks at personalized learning and the three areas below. In each area the question is also "How can curriculum design address personalized learning?"

What are the three areas?

* What is personalized learning

* How to personalize learning

* Examples of personalized learning

In each of these areas she also looks at the How, What, When, Where, and Why, providing key words or phrases that help you dig a little deeper into the subject.

Mia MacMeekin has provided an infographic that you could share with others in your building. Today we are asked to personalize curriculum, but support is not always available. This visual will help you better understand some key concepts, and provide you with ideas on how you might move forward.

Employers Want "Critical Thinkers," But Do They Know What It Means?

Employers Want "Critical Thinkers," But Do They Know What It Means? | Educational tools and ICT | Scoop.it
“Critical thinking.” It’s a phrase as vague as “results-oriented individual” or “problem-solver.” Companies call for job applicants that are both worker bees and world-class innovators, prepared to paint outside the lines--but only in the brand’s monochromatic colors.

According to an American Management Association survey, 72% of employers feel that critical thinking is key to their organization’s success, but only half of those surveyed said their employees actually show this skill.

The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

Η δημιουργικότητα και η αίσθηση πως υλοποιούμε καινοτόμες και αποτελεσματικές δράσεις, αποτελεί σημαντικό στοιχείο στη διδακτική. Αυτή η διάθεση και προοπτική της διδασκαλία, μας ενισχύει με αυτοπεποίθηση, εμπλέκει περισσότερο τους μαθητές μας και επιτρέπει να καλύπτουμε ευκολότερα την απόσταση μεταξύ στόχου και αποτελέσματος. Σίγουρα όλοι έχουμε νιώσει κάποια στιγμή αυτό το συναίσθημα να μας κατακλύζει, είναι άλλωστε κι ένα από τα πλεονεκτήματα της εργασίας μας ως εκπαιδευτικοί.

How Stress Is Making You Lose Your Mind

How Stress Is Making You Lose Your Mind | Educational tools and ICT | Scoop.it

Stress is affecting your brain much more than you think. Sure, you've experienced the distraction, forgetfulness, negativity or anxiety that comes from stressful situations, but did you know it's also shrinking your brain? Hormones released in response to stress not only affect brain function, they also change the physical structure of your brain.

The stress hormone cortisol can kill, shrink, and stop the generation of new neurons in a portion of the brain called the hippocampus. The hippocampus is critical for learning, memory and emotional regulation, as well as shutting off the stress response after a stressful event is over: all much-needed processes in both our professional and personal lives.

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...
