"The Maker Movement http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/tag/maker-movement/ ; has inspired progressive educators to bring more hands-on learning and tinkering into classrooms, and educator Gary Stager would like to see formal schooling be influenced by the Maker Movement, which has inspired young learners to tinker, to learn by doing, and take agency for their learning."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, June 23, 11:01 AM

Geography explores more than just what countries control a certain territory and what landforms are there.  Geography explores the spatial manifestations of power and how place is crafted to fit a particular vision.  Homeless people are essentially always 'out of place.'  This article from the Atlantic and this one from the Guardian share similar things: that urban planners actively design places that will discourage loitering which is undesirable to local businesses.  This gallery shows various defensive architectural tactics to make certain people feel 'out of place.'  Just to show that not all urban designs are anti-homeless, this bench is one that is designed to help the homeless.

"Where students of all ages retain the kindergarten enthusiasm....[for] the joy of learning".... Now that is what I hope for in my students everyday. That joy and enthusiasm. Now we know this type of joyful, playful atmosphere enables better imprinting of information into accessible memories. Let's get back to kindergarten thinking!

LSE Learning Technology and Innovation's curator insight, August 1, 8:49 AM

Learning that is rewarding is also learning that's more effective. The challenge lies in producing engaging pedagogies which promote discovery and the joys of learning; something that can be quite challenging in an increasingly metrics driven sector

If students are stressed out, the information cannot get in.


The factors that have been found to affect this comfort level such as self-confidence, trust and positive feelings for teachers, and supportive classroom and school communities are directly related to the state of mind compatible with the most successful learning, remembering, and higher-order thinking

Howard Rheingold: Teaching Critical Thinking in Age of Digital Credulity

Howard Rheingold: Teaching Critical Thinking in Age of Digital Credulity | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it

By HOWARD RHEINGOLD August 21, 2014 - 8:12am 


"I’ve been writing about digital media for nearly 30 years, and over that time, I’ve been asked over and over again by readers, critics, scholars and myself: “Do these personal computers, digital networks, webs of unfiltered information, mobile attention magnets do us more good than harm — as individuals, families, communities, and societies?” I have come to believe that the answer is: “It depends on how many people know how to use these technologies to their own benefit and that of the commons.”

Excellent resource for EVERYONE online!! In today's age of information, it is no longer an issue of recalling information. "Just Google it" is much more than simply a catchy phrase. Nearly every bit of information can be obtained in seconds, somewhere online. The issue has become finding the proverbial "needle in the haystack".

It has become mush more important to understand how to filter the good from the bad and the ugly.
