Quote "We still go to 'work' for money, but quite a lot of people would do the same thing in their leisure time as they do at work. One of the tragedies of our society is that so many old people suffer from loneliness and that's one reason why people work. You go to work to get paid, but it becomes a centre of your social life. I've seen too many men retire and then age 5 years in a few months and slowly vegetate because they have no idea what to do with their time, to believe that a life of enforced 'leisure' is so appealing that it should be the dominant goal of my working life."

Vincent Clark's curator insight, December 20, 2013 6:10 AM

VLEs still have their place for now as a stable baseline but these new emerging and possibly transcient technologies are like riding a bunch of wild horses, jumping from one to another as they stampede through the plain. There's not time to be an expert in a single technology anymore, just jack of all or master of some perhaps?

7 Ways to Use Digital Reading to Boost Kids’ Skills – Guest Post by Suz Lipman of Bookboard | The Digital Media Diet

7 Ways to Use Digital Reading to Boost Kids’ Skills – Guest Post by Suz Lipman of Bookboard | The Digital Media Diet | English and Spanish | Scoop.it

According to Elizabeth Rieke, CEO and Executive Director of the Center for Childhood Creativity, “Creative muscle is the new required leadership competency of the workplace and probably will be for a long time to come. Innovators have to be flexible, collaborative and able to communicate well with others – just like in Kindergarten.

 

And more importantly, they have to try things and be willing to fail – something our formal education system does not readily foster.”

 

What is a crucial skill and habit that builds creative muscle and its attendant soft skills? Reading.

The proof is in the reading.  And making it a daily practice.

This is so important. It isn't just important for mothers to read aloud. It is very important that fathers take a turn too.
