Witmer, J. A. (2015) Concept maps in introductory statistics. TEST, doi: 10.1111/test.12083.
Concept maps are tools for organizing thoughts on the main ideas in a course. I present an example of a concept map that was created through the work of students in an introductory class and discuss major topics in statistics and relationships among them.

Los mitos siempre han sido muy útiles para la humanidad, lo fueron en sus orígenes griegos en Occidente y los son ahora. Una pretexto para sobrevivir y para creer, porque la ciencia no tenía respuestas y el ser humano siempre las ha necesitado.
La tecnología es fascinante y apocalíptica a la vez, existe un discurso que incluso la ha colocado en los altares. Pero la educación en general y la escuela en particular han construido ciertos mitos, que también han sido una excelente excusa para perpetuar su sistema, mantener las rutinas académicas y controlar el poder del “saber y el conocimiento”.
En este post seremos un poco más latosos con las citas. Entendemos que estos temas se tratan y conversan muchas veces desde la opinión y el subjetivismo, influenciados por el alarmismo social que generan muchos titulares de los medios de comunicación. Por eso consideramos necesario apoyar con datos y estudios la debilidad y falsedad de este discurso en gran medida “institucionalizado” en los tres mitos que apuntamos.
The purpose of this study is to integrate the idea of concept map into dynamic assessment model for accounting education in vocational high school. By using the expert concept map and the objectives as the main reference to generate assessment questions for diagnosis purposes, students should be informed the shortcoming of learning and receive proper guidance to improve learning. A quasi-experimental single group pre-posttest design was conducted for this study. Subjects were given a pretest before treatment and posttest after treatment. In order to truly compare the performance between the treatments, the final grades of previous semester course were used to distinguish three different (high, medium, and low scores) student groups. The results show that after the intervention of computerized dynamic assessment system, posttest scores were significantly higher than pretest scores in all three groups. In addition, regardless of learning styles, when students were willing to commit time to follow the guidance, they could result in a good learning progress. Moreover, students with high degrees of completion performed significantly better than low degrees of completion students in posttest-pretest progress. Recommendations for using dynamic assessment system in accounting learning are also discusse
This year’s report, Digital Learning 24/7: Understanding Technology – Enhanced Learning in the Lives of Today’s Students, provides landmark findings on the efficacy and value associated with popular digital learning initiatives: blended learning, online learning, school-assigned mobile devices and STEM learning. The views, values and experiences of students taking part in these digital learning initiatives are compared with students in more traditional classroom-based education. “We hope by highlighting the views and values of today’s students, especially those students who are living a digital learning experience, this year’s report stimulates new discussions around the effective use of digital tools, resources and content to support student learning,” said Julie Evans CEO of Project Tomorrow.
ForAllRubrics is another cool web tool for easily creating rubrics, checklists, and badges.

Whether it’s Minecraft or duct tape wallets, the childhood passions that seem like fads, if not totally unproductive, can alternatively be seen as mediums for experiencing the virtuous cycle of curiosity: discovering, trying, failing and growing. At DIY, we’ve created a way for kids to explore hundreds of skills and to understand the ways in which they can be creative through them. Often, the skills are unconventional, and almost always the results are surprising. I don’t think it’s important that kids use the skills they learn on DIY for the rest of their lives. What’s important is that kids develop the muscle to be fearless learners so that they are never stuck with the skills they have. Only this will prepare them for a world where change is accelerating and depending on a single skill to provide a lifetime career is becoming impossible.
Most people have heard Clay Shirky’s quote that, “It’s not information overload, it’s filter failure.” The professor and author has coined terms such as ‘cognitive surplus’ to explain that we have the mental capacity to do a lot more with our collective intelligence, but too often, societal barriers inhibit us.
