interesting TED talk  - teaching without words

Ricochet Partners's curator insight, March 5, 2013 4:58 PM

What did you think about when you first read Teaching without Words ? Probably a voice inside you shouted out-loud : No way, this can't be possible! Well this is what mine did. I too was taken aback by the weirdness of this question because for me teaching always equals talking, communication using both oral,visual and written code. Words are the primary tools we use to convey meanings , of course there are non verbal tools as well but particularly in formal educational settings like schools and classrooms, words take the lion share of our language. Can you imagine yourself delivering a lesson with no words in it ? will it work? Well Peterson has an answer.

Vapaaehtoistyö vahvistaa aktiivista kansalaisuutta, lisää sosiaalista pääomaa ja synnyttää yhteisöllisyyttä. Vapaaehtoistyö on olennainen osa demokraattista yhteiskuntaa ja luo edellytyksiä sosiaaliselle ja inhimilliselle hyvinvoinnille. Lisäksi vapaaehtoistyö lisää ihmisten toiminnallisuutta, osallisuutta ja osaamista.

Vapaaehtoisia kannustaa työssään julkinen arvostus sekä näkyvyys mediassa. Toisaalta tärkeimpänä kannustavana asiana pidetään auttamisenhalua sekä vapaaehtoistyötäelämäntapana. Auttamiseen suuntautunut vapaaehtoistyö tulisi puolestaan organisoida paikallisesti ns. yhden luukun periaatteella. Kunnat voisivat olla mukana organisoimassa työtä.

Taking the Train in Italy - Instructions

 

Italy is extremely well connected by its railway system, so there is truly no reason why any traveler would go through the hassle of renting a car and dealing with the inevitable migraine-inducing traffic jams, poor street signs, and scarce parking. Unfortunately there are still areas, especially in the mountains and countryside, where trains cannot get to. Still, trains should be the first option for independent travelers, especially when connecting between major city centers. To make sure you choose the right type of train to reach your destination, review the following guidelines and you'll be on your way to an easy and stress-free ride.

TYPES OF TRAINS:

EUROSTAR also called by the names Frecciarossa, Frecciargento, and Freccia Bianca.
Intercity/Eurocity (also marked as IC and EC) – These trains stop in all the major cities, but not every single town - it's a less expensive, slower, and less fancy option than the Eurostar.
Espresso (E), Diretto (D), Regionale (R), and Interregionale (IR) – These trains make ALL the stops, will get you to the small towns and big towns. The slowest, but these trains are also the cheapest. They are more similar to a light-rail type of transportation for commuters and students.

IMPORTANT: If you purchase a ticket on trains OTHER than the Eurostar, you MUST stamp your ticket prior to getting on the train in one of the YELLOW machines within the train station. Don't forget as failing to do this will ensure an expensive penalty by the onboard ticket agent! Purchasing a ticket for the Eurostar includes a reservation and assigned seat, while seats on other trains are on a first-come first-served basis.

PURCHASING YOUR TRAIN TICKETS:

STEP 1: Know your train station names. STEP 2: Choose your train and purchase your ticket.

When you purchase your Eurostar ticket, you’ll have a reservation for a specific train as well as assigned seats. If you don’t have access to a printer, you can simply take note of the TRAIN NUMBER (marked as Treno ES Italia AV + the number), the Departure Time, the Coach (or Carrozza in Italian), the Seat Number (or Posti in Italian), and the PNR or Ticket Code.

To check train schedules and purchase your tickets ahead of time: <http://trenitalia.com/homepage_en.html>;

STEP 3: Get on the right train!

PAY ATTENTION! When you are looking for your train, be sure to look at the electronic timetable (PARTENZE – departures) and search for the train number and the time it is scheduled to leave. DO NOT LOOK AT THE DESTINATION! The destination indicated on the timetable for a certain train may NOT necessarily match your final destination. Your train may be directed to Naples, but your destination may be a stop along the way, like Rome. So make sure to get on the right train! Also, you will need to look for the correct binario (BIN) which is the track where the train is stationed. Then, look at your ticket and look for the number next to the word CARROZZA (that is the train car number you want to board). Next, you want to look for your seat number, marked on the ticket after the word POSTI.

A word of caution: Train stations are usually crowded, so watch your belongings as there can be pick-pockets and pan-handlers.

There’s No Homework in Finland | Online Classes

To some people, Finland isn’t a whole lot more than a chilly, northern country boasting a population of around 5 million people. Whether you’ve been to Finland or not, you probably haven’t had the chance to take an up-close and personal look at one of Finland’s greatest accomplishments to date—its high-achieving education system.

 

Students in Finland have, over the past several years, risen to the top of the academic food-chain, and they’ve become some of the top scholarly performers in the world. Compared to many other developed nations, including the US and Canada, Finland’s high school graduation rates have continued to grow steadily and impressively. Furthermore, a huge percentage of students continue on to earn college degrees, and students at all levels perform exceedingly well on standardized tests.

 

So what’s Finland’s secret? It’s hard to say for sure, but some good guesses as to the source of their success include respecting their teachers highly, assigning students less homework and more recess time, and keeping standardized testing to a minimum. The following infographic takes an in-depth look at some of the details behind Finland’s educational system, and what makes it work so well.
