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.

Fifteen-year-old Tavi Gevinson had a hard time finding strong female, teenage role models -- so she built a space where they could find each other. At TEDxTeen, she illustrates how the conversations on sites like Rookie, her wildly popular web magazine for and by teen girls, are putting a new, unapologetically uncertain and richly complex face on modern feminism.

How The Activity Learning Theory Works

How The Activity Learning Theory Works | iEduc | Scoop.it
“ How The Activity Learning Theory Works Vygotsky’s earlier concept of mediation, which encompassed learning alongside others (Zone of Proximal Development) and through interaction with artifacts, was the basis for Engeström’s version of Activity Theory (known as Scandinavian Activity Theory). Engeström’s approach was to explain human thought processes not simply on the basis of the individual, but in the wider context of the individual’s interactions within the social world through artifacts, and specifically in situations where activities were being produced. In Activity Theory people (actors) use external tools (e.g. hammer, computer, car) and internal tools (e.g. plans, cognitive maps) to achieve their goals. In the social world there are many artifacts, which are seen not only as objects, but also as things that are embedded within culture, with the result that every object has cultural and/or social significance. Tools (which can limit or enable) can also be brought to bear on the mediation of social interaction, and they influence both the behavior of the actors (those who use the tools) and also the social structure within which the actors exist (the environment, tools, artifacts). For further reading, here is Engeström’s own overview of 3 Generations of Activity Theory development. The first figure shows Second Generation AT as it is usually presented in the literature.”

No surprise for me here.  Lifelong learning and an ongoing commitment to meaningful professional development are central to what I do and who I am.  


In other words, I am biased. I believe great teachers develop over time.

HJJP's curator insight, Today, 4:23 AM

In General all people are visual in nature, some more than others, but things that can be seen and interpret right away are grasped and understood faster.

 

This infographic clearly provides the numbers behind the theory.

 

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Ways Students Can Share Videos Without YouTube | #learning

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Ways Students Can Share Videos Without YouTube | #learning | iEduc | Scoop.it
It is not a secret that I enjoy helping teachers learn how to use video creation tools with their students. Creating videos is a process that students enjoy because the final product is something that they can share with a potentially large audience. Teachers like video projects because students get engaged in developing and sharing their best work. At the end of the project there is always a question of how to share the work. If your school doesn't block it, YouTube is a good way to share (depending on your situation you might make the videos unlisted instead of public).
