This looks like a lot of work, but I can see students really getting into it.  It looks like a great way to 'trick' students into working very hard to learn the things needed for a successful project. (that they would have fun doing).

I believe in the 70:20:10 framework

I believe in the 70:20:10 framework | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Charles Jennings promotes a 70:20:10 framework for organizational learning, where on-the-job experiential/informal learning and social learning represent the preponderance of each employee’s overall learning. Only 10% is from formal learning activities.


The reason this framework works is that it more or less reflects what’s actually true for employees in the typical workplace. Formal education has its place in preparing people for the workplace. Once those people become employees, they have a job to get done. People aren’t hired to learn, they’re hired to increase productivity or capability. There are productivity expectations and organizational needs to be met.

School is a challenging place to learn to be a teacher. We are often isolated and it is difficult to learn informally.

"XBMC is the ultimate media center software, because it gives you a single interface for accessing all of your media from all of these different places. Even better: it does so using a remote-friendly interface, so with a few taps of your remote you can browse your digital collection of music and videos, explore some of the most popular media sites on the web or check out live Internet TV from around the world. Set up properly, XBMC can do just about anything you’d want your TV to be able to do online – from Hulu to your movie collection, from YouTube to live sports you’ve bought an online subscription for."


Jim Lerman's insight: This is a complete guide to using the XBMC media center to easily manage all of your online media content...no cable TV needed any more.

[Interview] Sir Ken Robinson at Miami Global Forum

So what has this explosion in technology meant for creativity and learning? According to Robinson, the impact has been enormous. “Tools have extended our physical reach, allowing us to do things physically we couldn’t otherwise do, but they’ve also expanded our minds,” he says. “The relationship between tools and intellectual, physical and spiritual development is really powerful.”


But while Robinson believes that tools play an important role in creativity, he sees an even higher calling for technology. “The real virtue is not in the tools we create, it is in how we use the tools to create, how creative we become with the tools,” he says. “The challenge with technology is not a technological one, it’s a spiritual one.”


For the best performing schools, technology has become an enabler of creativity and innovation, and Robinson believes it has the potential to do even more. “A lot of advocates of the standards movement think that creativity is some recreational activity, a distraction we don’t have time for,” he says. “The real situation is that adopting creative approaches to teaching and learning is among the best ways of engaging kids’ interests, imagination and therefore, raising standards.”


Creativity, as defined by Robinson, is also the basis for life-long entrepreneurship and innovation, highly sought-after in the 21st century workforce. He believes that, by unleashing students’ creativity, we can help them develop the kinds of skills that will serve them well in their careers, and as leaders of future generations.


In today’s thought-provoking Daily Edventure, Sir Ken and I discuss the state of education, technology and creativity, and what it all means for society. But there’s no better way to close out this post than by sharing the sign-off from the always-quotable Robinson’s keynote: “If we start to rethink some of the fundamental principles of education, [and] its relationship with technology, there’s a better chance that we will create the world that we and our children will want to live in.”

“The real virtue is not in the tools we create, it is in how we use the tools to create, how creative we become with the tools,” he says. “The challenge with technology is not a technological one, it’s a spiritual one.”

 

This is an important consideration. Many so-called tech experts fall short in understanding the key skills are pedagogic/spiritual rather than technical and technological. When we resort to the latter only, we succumb to Technique (Ellul).

Edit Photos Just Like In Photoshop: You CAN Do That On A Chromebook! ~ makeuseof | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"Chromebooks are fantastic machines. As the quality of the apps in the Chrome Web Store improves they’re becoming increasingly capable of doing everything that your primary PC or Mac can do, but for a fraction of the cost. Their security, ease of use, and portability is rapidly making them a popular choice for schools, businesses, and university students – all of whom are taking note of their advantages.


"In the previous piece in this series we looked at how, contrary to some people’s opinions, Chromebooks can play Google Play movies and television shows when offline. The latest installment in our mini-series looks at the wide choice of high quality photo editors that are available to all Chrome users."

by Allie Gross


"It's often easy to take the nation's education debates at face value, but truly understanding them requires a familiarity with a wide array of evidence and data. More often than not, the stats in the reports and studies behind state and national conversations speak better than opinion pieces on why a particular method or policy is great.

"In 2014, a slew of studies tackled topics ranging from the school-to-prison pipeline to the arts' decreasing presence in schools. To help minimize the clutter, we've rounded up 10 of the most interesting."

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, December 18, 7:10 AM

Educational policy is complex. The way we insist on politicizing education seems to serve only to make creation of policy and its implementation even more complex, and probably too often unnecessary. The more we know and understand about national education concerns, the better informed we might be for actual meaningful discussions and actions.
