How to transform schools into learning organisations? | #ModernEDUcation #LEARNing2LEARN  | Communication design | Scoop.it
Schools nowadays are required to learn faster than ever before in order to deal effectively with the growing pressures of a rapidly changing environment. Many schools however, look much the same today as they did a generation ago, and too many teachers are not developing the pedagogies and practices required to meet the diverse needs of 21st-century learners.

THE *OFFICIAL ANDREASCY*'s curator insight, January 15, 4:58 AM

Taking education to the next level.

Geemik Maria Açucena Da Silva's curator insight, January 15, 11:00 AM
"Based on an in-depth analysis of the literature and informed by a small network of experts, the paper identifies and operationalises an integrated model that consists of seven over-arching ‘action-oriented' dimensions which show how to transform schools into learning organisations: Developing and sharing a vision centred on the learning of all students. Creating and supporting continuous learning opportunities for all staff. Promoting team learning and collaboration among all staff. Establishing a culture of inquiry, innovation and exploration. Embedding systems for collecting and exchanging knowledge and learning. Learning with and from the external environment and larger learning system. Modelling and growing learning leadership. In short, a school as learning organisation has the capacity to change and adapt routinely to new environments and circumstances as its members, individually and together, learn their way to realising their vision."

A Quick-Guide To Teaching Empathy In The Classroom | #Understanding each other | #ModernEDU

A Quick-Guide To Teaching Empathy In The Classroom | #Understanding each other | #ModernEDU | Communication design | Scoop.it
By teaching students these skills in an authentic, applicable way, will they see each other differently? It’s worth finding out. With so many curricular and time restraints on teachers, how can we be expected to explicitly teach empathy in a meaningful way?

A Definition Of Empathy

Webster’s dictionary defines empathy as: the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either in the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner; also: the capacity for this.

Is the universe fine-tuned for life to evolve?

Is the universe fine-tuned for life to evolve? | Communication design | Scoop.it
Geraint F. Lewis’ day job involves creating synthetic universes on supercomputers. They can be overwhelmingly bizarre, unstable places. The question that compels him is: how did our universe come to be so perfectly tuned for stability and life?
 

For more than 400 years, physicists treated the universe like a machine, taking it apart to see how it ticks. The surprise is it turns out to have remarkably few parts: just leptons and quarks and four fundamental forces to glue them together.

But those few parts are exquisitely machined. If we tinker with their settings, even slightly, the universe as we know it would cease to exist. Science now faces the question of why the universe appears to have been “fine-tuned” to allow the appearance of complex life, a question that has some potentially uncomfortable answers.

The only way is ethics: what are the moral obligations of a graphic designer?

The only way is ethics: what are the moral obligations of a graphic designer? | Communication design | Scoop.it
To a doctor, ethics are about keeping a patient alive. The modern Hippocratic oath that a doctor takes is the main example of this. A doctor must swear to "use treatments for the benefit of the ill in accordance with my ability and my judgement.” To a lawyer, the issue of ethics also relates primarily to treating clients well; although this is about ensuring that no conflicts of interest occur and that a lawyer keeps confidential any potentially damaging information they are told by a client. To a designer, at least a designer today, ethical issues are viewed as coming from the client. Rather than framing ethical questions in terms of how the designers themselves might behave professionally, designers frame these questions not around their own practice but around those of the client. What does the client do? Is this ethically acceptable or not? Indeed, is this politically acceptable or not?

janlgordon's curator insight, December 20, 2016 6:37 AM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Timothy (Tim) Hughes because it provides new insights into how to better connect with your social media community.

 

It's important to connect with your fans and followers instead of just advertising to them.

 

Understand the Right Way to Interact as a Brand

 

Social media users are looking for authenticity, not sales. I agree that you can appeal to their needs by letting go of traditional sales and advertising methods.

 

Hughes shows how to get to know your audience better in order to provide value and increase sales.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • "Social now reaches across the whole organisation, not just sales and marketing but human resources, finance, purchasing, research and development, returns, after market, supply chain, etc."

 

  • "Your organisation needs a “top down and bottom up” social strategy that reaches across all departments. Where everybody know what the strategy is, how to interact with customers, the tone of voice and brand message."

 

  • "People are more likely to buy from friends, from people they have a relationship with, people they feel have something in common with, and people they have been recommended. Build relationships on Social and those people are more likely to buy from you."

VIPKid recruits teachers through referrals and social media and gets 10,000 to 20,000 applications a month. Prospective hires are tested and screened and about one out of every 10 applicants are approved, Mi says. Successful ones take VIPKid's training courses for about a week and need to pass a final test before starting work. They're not required to have degrees in education, but do need a bachelor's degree and some teaching experience.

China as well as other countries are offering educators across the board an opportunity to earn $1000s per month teaching students how to speak English. 

This might be an ideal way to supplement a mediocre income.

Suzanne Gildert is a founder and CTO of Kindred AI – a company pursuing the modest vision of “building machines with human-like intelligence.” Her startup just came out of stealth mode and I am both proud and humbled to say that this is the first ever long-form interview that Suzanne has done. Kindred AI has raised 15 million dollars from notable investors and currently employs 35 experts in their offices in Toronto, Vancouver and San Francisco. Even better, Suzanne is a long term Singularity.FM podcast fan, total tech geek, Gothic artist, PhD in experimental physics and former D-Wave Quantum Computer maker. Right now I honestly can’t think of a more interesting person to have a conversation with.

Researchers in the UK have turned some highly specialized radar equipment to the skies to track a staggering volume of material—3.2 kilotons of it—as it transits the skies of southern England. The material in question? Insects, about 3.5 trillion of them each year. While smaller insects seem to drift on the prevailing wind, larger ones appear to undergo a directed, seasonal migration.
