What we cover in class is less important than what we discover for ourselves.

Tina Jameson's insight:

In the digital world - search engines filter out 'new discoveries' and restricts your information via algorithms that are based on what your profile - with limited choices usually dominating the search results.  This article looks at the importance of libraries and the roles they play in broadening our expectations, and providing us with more extensive options to discover and expand our learning journey.

The brain is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve by obtaining new knowledge and skills, even before birth.

The following seven points look at key principles from neuroscience research paired with tips that will allow course creators to achieve effective eLearning development.

Why It’s Imperative to Teach Students How to Question as the Ultimate Survival Skill

Why It’s Imperative to Teach Students How to Question as the Ultimate Survival Skill | General learning capabilities | Scoop.it
AboutAlbertEinstein

By Warren Berger
Friday March 14 is the 135th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s birthday, a good time to think about the importance of asking questions.

Via Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby
Tina Jameson's insight:

Fantastic article about the need to encourage 'questions' rather than answers.  The article is critical of teaching that focuses on content and concepts , and also points out the negative impact of 'peer approval' which discourages many students from asking questions.

more...
Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, March 17, 2014 9:38 AM

While the article itself is interesting, I find the comments at the end equally so. I think the point of this article is that teachers should be thinking in terms of how  to teach the students to ask questions: how to ask, when to ask, how to use the replies, and how to think about questioning. I think it will take diligent efforts after years of teaching to "THE" right answer.

ICTE Solutions Australia's curator insight, December 28, 2015 11:43 PM

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | General learning capabilities | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

Tina Jameson's insight:

While the original Scoop graphic and comments relate to 'curation skills' - I felt it was relevant to share with students as it offers a model incorporating 'ethical' consideration through the research process.

This is an interesting infograhic. Does constructivism really mean learners are in control of their learning? This almost suggests learning can be planned in ways that are certain which does not take into consideration environmental interacting and human relating. John Dewey suggested learning is about interacting with the environment in unexpected ways that reconstruct learner and the environment. It is about reconstructing rather than simply reorganizing.

EARTH HOUR

EARTH HOUR | General learning capabilities | Scoop.it

On March 31 2007, WWF-Australia inspired more than 2.2 million individuals and 2,000 businesses to turn their lights out for one hour in the first Earth Hour event – kicking off the world's largest voluntary action for the environment.

This year, Earth Hour Australia is turning Earth Hour on its axis, using the power of Earth Hour to shine a light on one of the world’s most loved – and vulnerable – places: The Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but it’s future is uncertain. Climate change is raising ocean temperatures and making seawater more acidic, threatening the survival of the coral and the animals that call it home. And to make it even worse, the Queensland and Australian Governments are fast-tracking mega port developments, including the world’s biggest coal port at Abbot Point.

The Earth Hour community is taking action to tell Australia’s Prime Minister that if we don’t act now, the effects of climate change on our reef will be irreversible in just sixteen years.

Get involved at www.earthhour.org.au

Tina Jameson's insight:

Earth Hour - this year's Australian focus is on the Great Barrier Reef.  The Earth Hour website provides lots of information and links to world projects which would fit in beautifully with the Australian Curriculum cross curriculum priority of sustainability.
