13 Implications for Educational institutions at the primary, secondary, and post-secondary levels, are largely the products of technology infrastructure and social circumstances of the past.

The landscape has changed and educational institutions should consider how to adapt quickly in response. Some directions of change might include:

»Placing additional emphasis on developing skills such as critical thinking, insight, and analysis capabilities

»Integrating new-media literacy into education programs

»Including experiential learning that gives prominence to soft skills—such as the ability to collaborate, work in groups, read social cues, and respond adaptively

»Broadening the learning constituency beyond teens and young adults through to adulthood

»Integrating interdisciplinary training that allows students todevelop skills and knowledge in a range of subjects

How A Genius Thinks

How A Genius Thinks | Good Advice | Scoop.it
'However, while many people define genius differently, most agree that Richard Feynman was one and there is probably no better example of his brilliance than his famous talk, There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom. It not only launched a revolution in physics and engineering that is still being played out today, it shows us how a true genius really thinks.'

Via Lynnette Van Dyke, Ivon Prefontaine
Karen Bowden's insight:

Good quote from this article: "Confusion serves no one except those who into intend to deceive."

Karen Bowden's insight:

The greatest thing that I learned by NOT reading Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

"About 10 years back, I discarded the 7 Habits of Highly effective people book as boring and lengthy. I wish I would have convinced my stupid-10-years-younger self to persist through reading this book. I wish I would have known these lessons earlier. These insights were always there, in fact very much available to me, but I wasn’t grown enough to understand them."

See This Teacher's Amazing Response To The Question, 'But When Are We Gonna Have To Use This?' | Good Advice | Scoop.it
Things that matter. Pass 'em on.
Karen Bowden's insight:

"Every year I get the question in class, 'When are we gonna have to use this?' And my answer to that question is, 'You're not.' That's not the point. By doing math, we are carving neural pathways that otherwise wouldn't have been there. Grappling with problems like this makes us better problem solvers, and by extension, better human beings."

The 15 Punctuation Marks in Order of Difficulty - Infographic | Good Advice | Scoop.it
Ever wonder why you can't figure out when and where to stick a comma? It's probably because commas, by far, have more rules and applications than any other punctuation mark. But why do so many people use the semicolon incorrectly? Comparatively, it should be one of the easiest punctuation marks to master. And why doesn't anybody seem to use the en dash?
