The competencies are now the core of the education that young learners require in order to shape our emerging new paradigm and within competencies the virtues are the bedrock that we met expose those learners and ourselves to. MT

Jodi Clark's curator insight, November 30, 2014 8:10 PM

Could these education insights also relate to how we learn as professionals?  What if our trainings assumed we were going to be co-creators of our learning experiences?

Is Education as We Know it On its Way Out? | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Unless you're an educator, you probably haven't heard predictions by thought leaders that the traditional school system is on its way out. More surprisingly, these predictions are being borne out by experiments where new learning models are being tri...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 23, 2014 5:01 PM

Perhaps School as we know is on the way out, but education and School are not interchangeable words although they are used that way frequently. Actually, School as we know it should have been on the way out a long time ago. With the current reformers who propose change that does not change the structure, it is not happening soon.

How Technology is Changing the Way Children Think and Focus | Psychology Today | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

 

 By Jim Taylor, Ph. D.

 

"There is...a growing body of research that technology can be both beneficial and harmful to different ways in which children think. Moreover, this influence isn’t just affecting children on the surface of their thinking. Rather, because their brains are still developing and malleable, frequent exposure by so-called digital natives to technology is actually wiring the brain in ways very different than in previous generations.."

What Is Education? Insights From The World's Greatest Minds

What Is Education? Insights From The World's Greatest Minds | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

"As we seek to refine and reform today’s system of education, we would do well to ask, 'What is education?' Our answers may provide insights that get to the heart of what matters for 21st century children and adults alike. It is important to step back from divisive debates on grades, standardized testing, and teacher evaluation—and really look at the meaning of education. So I decided to do just that—to research the answer to this straightforward, yet complex question. Looking for wisdom from some of the greatest philosophers, poets, educators, historians, theologians, politicians, and world leaders, I found answers that should not only exist in our history books, but also remain at the core of current education dialogue. In my work as a developmental psychologist, I constantly struggle to balance the goals of formal education with the goals of raising healthy, happy children who grow to become contributing members of families and society. Along with academic skills, the educational journey from kindergarten through college is a time when young people develop many interconnected abilities." | by Marilyn Price-Mitchell

 

- The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done. -- Jean Piaget, 1896-1980, Swiss developmental psychologist, philosopher

 

- Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. Albert Einstein, 1879-1955, physicist

Des idées évidentes mais sans doute pas encore pour tout le monde !

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 6, 2014 12:55 PM

Relationships are at the centre of education. It is no longer teacher-centred or learner-centred. In a sense, teachers and students are learning alongside each other. I am not sure it will always be the teacher leading the way although they have to be willing to know when to let go and when to take charge. Content is still incredibly important in that unless it connects to the lives of teachers and students it is not practical and meaningful. Technology is rarely seamlessly integrated.

Correlation between mobile phone use and cyberbullying is explored in this info graphic. This would make a great conversation starter. Plenty of other statistics in this info graphic to reflect on.
