I'm a little late for Canada Day, but the information about the origins of the names of all the Provinces and Territories is great information any time of year.

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning | Instruction | Scoop.it

The highest-level executive thinking, making connections, and "aha" moments of insight and creative innovation are more likely to occur in an atmosphere of what Alfie Kohn calls exuberant discovery, where students of all ages retain that kindergarten enthusiasm of embracing each day with the joy of learning.

"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

Imanol Oquiñena's curator insight, August 10, 4:22 AM

The highest-level executive thinking, making connections, and "aha" moments of insight and creative innovation are more likely to occur in an atmosphere of what Alfie Kohn calls exuberant discovery, where students of all ages retain that kindergarten enthusiasm of embracing each day with the joy of learning


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

A/Prof Jon Willis's curator insight, June 16, 7:12 PM

Although this is a relatively trivial example, the idea of a Bingo approach to skills building is an interesting one - at UQ we're using a passport as part of engagement processes with Aboriginal school students visiting the university. For every activity they participate in, there is a unique stamp for their passport. The bingo card idea is similar so that across a semester, students fill up their bingo card with activities that build their skills in a range of domains, or across a range of technologies or tools.

40 maps that explain food in America

40 maps that explain food in America | Instruction | Scoop.it

"The future of the nations will depend on the manner of how they feed themselves, wrote the French epicurean Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin in 1826. Almost 200 years later, how nations feed themselves has gotten a lot more complicated. That’s particularly true in the US, where food insecurity coexists with an obesity crisis, where fast food is everywhere and farmer’s markets are spreading, where foodies have never had more power and McDonald’s has never had more locations, and where the possibility of a barbecue-based civil war is always near. So here are 40 maps, charts, and graphs that show where our food comes from and how we eat it, with some drinking thrown in for good measure."
