15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers - Edudemic

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers - Edudemic | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

A Simple, Open-Ended Assignment: Explain When You're Creative - TeachThought

A Simple, Open-Ended Assignment: Explain When You're Creative - TeachThought | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

- TeachThough"Below is an assignment recently given to a 10th grade classroom. The assignment was inspired by Ken Robinson’s The Element.

As you may remember, Ken Robinson defines The Element in the first book you read earlier this year with the same name. Within that text he explains that we all have talents and gifts. When those talents and gifts work in concert with our passions, we are functioning within a productive, sweet spot called The Element.

He firmly believes that we are all capable of being creative, and he reaffirms that within this book. He also criticizes schools (that often separate arts from core subjects) and workplace environments that notoriously stifle the natural, creative juices we all possess."

A escola precisa rever seu papel social pois servir ao sistema enquanto máquina motriz da sociedade não corresponde  mais aos anseios pessoais dos cidadãos, que rejeita, mesmo inconscientemente, ao seu formato curricular aristotélico.
