narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

7 Must-Have Problem Based Learning Apps, Tools and Resources

7 Must-Have Problem Based Learning Apps, Tools and Resources | iEduc | Scoop.it
Problem Based Learning (PBL) can radically change student learning. Rather than stuff students full of facts or material to memorize, problem based learning encourages students to solve problems independently (or in groups) to find solutions. Additionally, problem based learning is student-centered, which is where all of education is headed. Robert Delisle explains, “PBL asks students to demonstrate an understanding of the material, not just to parrot back information with a few word changes. Research and teachers’ experience have demonstrated that active instructional techniques like PBL can motivate bored students and raise their understanding and achievement.” Therefore, teachers must make efforts …

Certainly, all the world around, everybody relies on technology more than they imagine or want. This is an interesting report to explore the challenges of this new reality.
Ralph Springett's curator insight, October 10, 2:36 PM
Supporting the development of digital skills is complex. Initiatives are often context specific and reliant on partnerships. In addition, the environment must be fertile for initiatives to flourish. Policy makers, education leaders, industry and the individual all have a role in equitable digital skills development.
How is it that you will contribute?

Kintsugi: The Centuries-Old Japanese Craft of Repairing Pottery with Gold & Finding Beauty in Broken Things


We all grow up believing we should emphasize the inherent positives about ourselves. But what if we also emphasized the negatives, the parts we've had to work to fix or improve? If we did it just right, would the negatives still look so negative after all?

Are Virtual Schools Good for Kids? | iEduc | Scoop.it
With the birth of advanced technology has come advancement in the classroom. Along with the invention of the television came classroom films and typewriters were replaced with computers. This natural progression has allowed for unique opportunities of learning that were not available before advanced technology. As each student is different, their way of learning is distinct and with technology, teachers are now better able to provide multiple layers of education. While teaching about the ocean, a teacher may have a slideshow, a film, and a computer research or graphic design assignment. Unique ways of teaching allow the teacher to target …

The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development - The Aspen Institute

The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development - The Aspen Institute | iEduc | Scoop.it

"The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development articulates the scientific consensus regarding how people learn. The research brief presents a set of consensus statements—developed and unanimously signed onto by the Commission’s Council of Distinguished Scientists—that affirm the interconnectedness of social, emotional, and academic development as central to the learning process.

"The brief draws from brain science, medicine, economics, psychology, and education research to describe why it is essential to address the social, emotional, and cognitive dimensions of learning; how these dimensions together shape students’ academic and life outcomes; and how these competencies can be taught throughout childhood, adolescence, and beyond. The evidence outlined in this brief moves the nation beyond the debate as to whether schools should attend to students’ social and emotional development, to how schools can integrate social, emotional, and academic development into their daily work."
