The ubiquity of Google and Wikipedia means the days of rote learning are gone. From the collection of big data (used in administration and research) to the development of massive open online courses, the once intimate, hands-on college environment is morphing into a more impersonal, automated world in which students no longer absorb a faculty-designed curriculum but instead develop a high degree of academic self-direction.
That’s the truth about gamification: it will not make your kids smarter or perform better on tests. Gamification is about increasing motivation and engagement. Once you have a kid’s attention, it is still up to the teacher to deliver a solid, meaningful lesson. Gamification is not a magic bullet, nor does every student need it, but the students who benefit the most from a gamified classroom just so happen to be the ones who most need motivation and engagement.

For many people, drones are what they found neatly wrapped underneath the Christmas tree this past holiday season. But piloting flying lawnmowers around the park for fun is just part of the consumer side of the technology. Drones are also expected to transform how companies do business. A report released by PwC today (May 9) estimates that commercia
Minerva is an accredited university with administrative offices and a dorm in San Francisco, and it plans to open locations in at least six other major world cities. But the key to Minerva, what sets it apart most jarringly from traditional universities, is a proprietary online platform developed to apply pedagogical practices that have been studied and vetted by one of the world’s foremost psychologists, a former Harvard dean named Stephen M.Kosslyn, who joined Minerva in 2012.
The whole life is the best game. But we are not prepared to play with things ( Internet of things-), with students ( Internet of people -iop) and Gamification could be the best way to prepare professors and students to live love and freedom.
Using visuals in your notes can be so much more powerful than pure text notes. Using visuals is not about avoiding words. Most of my notes are text. But if you have one strong visual per page, it can serve like an anchor, and your mind will often be able to reload the entire idea into your memory in an instant without you having to read through all the text again.
The vaunted “Emotional Quotient” rests not only on executive functions at the reaction level, but also on the deeper questioning and resolving of why the behavior exists in the first place. For instance, in a meeting, you’d be both participating as well as observing/modulating how you participate.
To promote awareness across our workplace about how digital tools can be used to improve productivity and learning, we are untethering our faculty development offerings from a closed-off physical space and infusing them with principles of openness and connected learning. Untethered faculty development immerses instructors in digital, connected learning environments that develops their digital literacy over time.
Life is permanent transformation and evolution toward Love and Freedom. Without connection our hearts ( what we feel) and heads ( what we think), without teambuilding ( shared vision, learning live love and freedom) we stagnate...
leaders and their organizations suffer from fear of failure and practiced incumbency, especially when embarking on an ambitious change initiative.
The change journey is fraught with unknowns and the unexpected. Orchestrating organizational transformation in any large company is like launching a rocket into space. Much goes into preparations to be successful, but unforeseen factors like weather or wind pressure can affect the launch and flight path. A multitude of factors can misdirect the change program, resulting in delays, crashes, or becoming lost in orbit.
Cost is the number one reason why people do not go to college, and it's the main reason why they drop out. Many of those who do get a degree are saddled with burdensome debt. Student debt now exceeds consumer debt in the United States. It's not surprising that a 2013 Huffington Post poll showed that a majority of Americans -- 62 percent -- believe they cannot afford a public college education.
Khan Academy represents a philosophy. Sal Khan is pushing this idea of mastery learning where students shouldn’t move on to the next thing unless they really grasp the concepts that have come before, especially in areas like math, the idea that he’s trying to patch over an educational system he sees as flawed and moving people through too quickly.
As humanity debates the threats and opportunities of advanced artificial intelligence, we are simultaneously enabling that technology through the increasing use of personalization that is understanding and anticipating our needs through sophisticated machine learning solutions.
The proportion of students who entered college in 2009 and graduated by 2015 declined across every kind of institution and every kind of student, according to a new report by the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC).
