A cool look at the DTM and population pyramids

RobersonWG's curator insight, December 27, 2013 10:52 PM

Read the article and review the GIF image data.  Think of these as non-gender specific population pyramids.  How would you explain the growth in our older population age ranges 50+?  Why such a growth in older people and a decline in younger people?

Noah Duncan's curator insight, January 13, 5:44 PM

There are many countries that are growing old. The United States of America isn't as much as Japan. Japan must have a low fertility rate because there are more elders. There are some countries that are not getting older Like Nigeria. Nigeria has a very high fertility rate, and children are a huge share of the people in those countries.

How To Get Into The 'Flow' In Your Classroom - Csikszentmihalyi !

How To Get Into The 'Flow' In Your Classroom -  Csikszentmihalyi ! | Gamification and QR Bar Codes | Scoop.it

By Katie Lepi:

 

So just how do you learn to get into the flow in your classroom? The ever-lovely Mia MacMeekin made this handy graphic after watching a TED talk by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and reading his book. I haven’t read the book, but the TED talk is really inspiring. It is not specifically geared towards teaching or education, but talks about how to find fulfillment and happiness through immersion in activities – which he calls ‘flow’. If you’re interested in a bit of his backstory, you can read a bit about him here. Mia has extrapolated the ideas of his TED talk and applied them to the classroom.


Via Dennis T OConnor
Judih Weinstein Haggai's insight:

Remembering when my class and I were 'flowing'. Powerful and important. Keep it alive. All year long, not just at the beginning when the teacher has 'energy'....

After all - in the flow, energy flows!

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, July 15, 2:36 AM

Flow in the live classroom or in the online setting is both an art and a science. Here's a good overview of Flow with an info graphic that captures some of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's thinking. (Don't miss his inspiring TED Talk http://www.ted.com/talks/mihaly_csikszentmihalyi_on_flow

This professor seems to have identified the issue if technological distractions and has actually implemented a seemingly very valuable class. Maybe this is the way that we, as a society achieve modern mindfulness- by having it taught through institutions. I think it is important to strive towards mindfulness oneself, though a bit of guided time management for the technological age could be incredibly valuable!

Asking students to create or identify themselves through an avatar to explain how something works or how it is made allows students to package information in a way that it helps them to unpack knowledge. Becoming personally and emotionally invested helps to engage learners. They take ownership.

"This week I’ve been getting excited about using Kahoot in the classroom. Kahoot delivers online quizzes and surveys to your students.


It works very similar to the more well-known Socrative. The teacher displays the question and the answers on the beamer or tv in the front of the classroom. The students see the corresponding icon and color on their screen. They have 30 seconds to answer on their devices and get points for every question they answer right. The quicker they answer the more points they receive. After each question the top 5 students are shown on the board with their scores. This is where it gets exciting. The students love this immediate feedback and want to get to the top position. I have never seen students so focused on answering the questions correctly."
