8 Wonderful Self-development Books for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

8 Wonderful Self-development Books for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Isaac Asimov once stated that ‘self-education is…the only kind of education there is’. For Albert Einstein ‘ intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death’. The moral behind the quotes is that personal learning, self-directed education, informal learning, self-development…you name it, is a life-long process. It’s an endeavour that is internally motivated and driven by an insatiable desire to explore and understand the world. It is also a mindset, a thinking framework that positions individuals within their social realities.

Innovation Management Class

Innovation Management Class | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
I am teaching an MBA course on innovation management. It is actually a cross between competitive strategy, innovation management, and strategic management. It is all coming together fairly nicely. I am a little concerned about how it will actually work. Here is the in class plan so far… There is a textbook they are reading as background (but I don’t think I like the book). I have supplemented the NASA book, as well.  The infographic is clickable and links work for the first 2/3 of the in class activities and such.

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most important reason for developing metacognition is that it can improve the application of knowledge, skills, and character qualities in realms beyond the immediate context in which they were learned. This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.

GoConqr - Changing the way you learn | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Description by The Scout Project

 

"GoConqr (formerly known as Exam Time) is a learning and networking tool for students and educators. GoConqr allows users to make flashcards, mindmaps, quizzes, notes, and slides to review concepts. Users can then choose to keep these resources private for their own use (or for their class's use), or opt to share these resources to the larger GoConqr community. By sharing resources, other CoConqr users can search and use these resources for their own purposes. GoConqr is designed to help users prepare for standardized tests (such as the SAT, ACT, and GRE) or to study subject-specific facts and content. This web-based tool is also available as a free application for iOS and android devices.

Now Dig This!: Art and Black Los Angeles 1960-1980 | Now Dig This! digital archive | Hammer Museum | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"Exhibition and digital archive that chronicles the vital legacy of the African American artists working in Los Angeles from 1960-1980"

 

Description by The Scout Report:

 

"Between 1960 and 1980, black artists and curators created a rich artistic community in Los Angeles. Artists involved in this community include Betye Saar, Melvin Edwards, Fred Eversley, Alonzo Davis, and Samella Lewis, to name just a few. These artists were inspired by the political and cultural changes in Los Angeles and by civil rights activism during this era. In 2011, Columbia University art historian Kellie Jones curated Now Dig This!: Art and Black Los Angeles to commemorate and exhibit this artistic community. In 2016, the Hammer Museum of Los Angeles digitized this remarkable collection. Site visitors can browse through 130 images and videos created by over 30 artists. Each work of art is accompanied by thoughtful commentary that positions the piece in context. Visitors can also explore this collection by artist, or by curated themes, including Frontrunners, Artist/Galleries, and L.A. Snapshot. This collection also includes three critical essays, including one authored by Jones

You want to teach with what’s been proven to work. That makes sense.

In the ‘data era’ of education that’s mean research-based instructional strategies to drive data-based teaching, and while there’s a lot to consider here we’d love to explore more deeply, for now we’re just going to take a look at the instructional strategies themselves.

The History Project

Your living time capsule to collect artifacts and share stories. Join the movement to capture, preserve, and connect with the life narratives that transcend generations.

 

Description by Richard Byrne

 

"The History Project is a great site for collaboratively creating multimedia timelines. The History Project includes an audio recording tool that you can use to talk about events in the timelines that you create. The History Project lets you upload your own pictures or import pictures from social networks to add to the audio recordings contained in the events on your timeline. Of course, like any good time tool, The History Project lets you write in notes, dates, and locations. When you write in a location a Google Map of that location is added to your timeline event. In the video embedded below I provide an overview of how to use The History Project."
