While we think of metaphors as mainly word-based, visual metaphors can be a potent selling tool. They can both engage the brain like text metaphors and stimulate the viewer’s senses in a way that words alone may not.

Whiteboard Animations in e-Learning: They are short and sweet... and easy to create | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

"Whiteboard animations are videos that ‘show’ the learner an idea or concept through a series of live drawings. Being short and crisp, they align very well to the needs of the modern corporate learner and are fast gaining popularity as an impactful tool for learning delivery in technology-aided learning."

Moodle remains my LMS of choice.  It's a dynamic and evolving open source platform that rivals any of the commerical systems.  Hosting costs are MUCH LOWER than Blackboard, D2L or others.

Beth Kanter's curator insight, December 26, 2013 12:38 PM

This article is from 99u, a site  that is for and about being creative.   This article summarizes research on creativity and how to use it so you are more creative.    Creativity is part of a curator's thinking tools, so the advice in this article also works for improving your curation skills.


1.) Restrict yourself:   Don't use too many sources or look at too much information or for too much time.


2.)  Re-Conceptualize:    Describe an article or information resource for audience.


3.)  Separate Seeking from Sensing:   Making sense of what you find is different than the discovery part.  Don't try to do both at once


4.)  Use counterfactual thinking:   Ask what is missing or what if the advice was written in a different way.


5.)  Daydream after getting started:   Come back to a resource after you have thought about it for a while.


These points about creativity are all about mindsets.  What is your curation mindset?

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning?

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning? | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Author David Price writes: "If schools are coming into direct competition with the learning opportunities available in the informal social space, it has to be said that this is a pressure, which barely registers within the political discourse.

 

In the following pages, Price describes three cases across the globe — in London, Sydney, San Diego — that have mapped a vision that answers the questions above. Here’s what they have in common:

 

- By insisting that their teachers and mentors share their learning, all three have de-privatized teaching and learning.

 

- By opening up the commons, and by designing workspaces without walls, they have brought Edison’s ‘machine-shop culture’ into education.

 

- By bringing into the commons, experts, parents and investors, they have given an authenticity to the work of their students that is impossible to simulate in an enclosed classroom.

 

- By modelling collaborative working to their students they have fostered the peer learning which is at the heart of ‘open’.

 

- By emphasizing adult and real-world connections, they ensure that students are preparing for the world beyond school by being in that world.

 

- By making their expertise and intellectual property freely available, they have created high demand from their peers and ensured that knowledge travels fast.

 

- By seeing technology not simply as an aide to learning but as the imperative for change, they ensure that their programs are relevant to societal needs and societal shifts.

 

- By trusting in their staff and students, and by giving them freedom and responsibility in equal measure, they have fostered a culture of learning that rewards respectful challenge, shuns unnecessary deference, and therefore constantly stays in motion.

Wondering what is on the horizon for education.... Significant upheaval, hacking our own learning, and the ability by our students to learn by....
compiling their own learning playlist, putting together units of study that appeal to their passions, (and) the one-size-fits-all model of high school will appear alarmingly anachronistic... Great quote by the Singapore Minister of Eduction -- “The educational paradigm of our parents’ generation, which emphasized the transmission of knowledge, is quickly being overtaken by a very different paradigm. This new concept of educational success focuses on the nurturing of key skills and competencies such as the ability to seek, to curate and to synthesize information; to create and innovate; to work in diverse cross-cultural teams; as well as to appreciate global issues within the local context.”
María Dolores Díaz Noguera's curator insight, January 14, 2014 4:46 AM

Very nice sharing. Thanks

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 14, 2014 1:43 PM

Sometimes what is most obvious is what we do not see readily. Whitehead suggested this was the case, but other, including the Buddha and Jesus, said similar things. We need to examine what we are doing, be aware of what we want from education. This takes leadership that moves away from easy, facile ways of doing things with 7 habits, 4 methods, etc. and makes real and meaningful change.

 

We simply cannot continue to add more changes without removing some of the architecture that currently exists. This includes with technology.
