Tom Hood's curator insight, October 19, 2013 11:35 AM

I am a fan of Gardner and his Five MInds for the Future. This new work is needed and I like the emphasis on designing learning to work with these multiple intelligences. In this world of rapid change and increasing complexity, learning is THE competitive advantage we can control. 

Ante Lauc's curator insight, October 21, 2013 3:39 AM

For me the most important is moral and emotional intelligence, than cognitive and other that HG did discover.

Rhiannon Boyd's curator insight, November 18, 2013 8:33 PM

From the article: 

 "On the basis of research in several disciplines, including the study of how human capacities are represented in the brain, I developed the idea that each of us has a number of relatively independent mental faculties, which can be termed our “multiple intelligences.” The basic idea is simplicity itself. A belief in a single intelligence assumes that we have one central, all-purpose computer—and it determines how well we perform in every sector of life. In contrast, a belief in multiple intelligences assumes that we have a number of relatively autonomous computers—one that computes linguistic information, another spatial information, another musical information, another information about other people, and so on." - HG

Keeping the Faith: Resilience in the Jewish Tradition

Keeping the Faith: Resilience in the Jewish Tradition | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
I’m thrilled to introduce Hashivenu, a new podcast that highlights resilience practices embedded in Jewish teaching and Jewish living. To better understand the terrain I’m exploring in Hashivenu, let me take a step back and frame the Jewish idea of resilience. The American Psychological Association defines resilience as “the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats and even significant sources of stress.” Harvard University psychologist George Vaillant suggests that resilience can be understood as a “twig with a fresh, green living core” that springs back and continues to grow after encountering pressure.

Old Models of Jewish Legacy Institutions No Longer Working, Experts Say

Old Models of Jewish Legacy Institutions No Longer Working, Experts Say | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
The research and statistics are in, and the message to Jewish legacy organizations – those longstanding community institutions that historically have held fast to the status quo – is loud and clear: To be viable into the 21st century, the template must change.

Synagogues, Jewish federations and other organizations are already facing a perfect storm of societal shifts as the sheer number of non-Orthodox Jews continues to plummet and millennials trend toward a new paradigm of customization and personalization.

Tackling Tuition with Local Jewish Day Schools

Tackling Tuition with Local Jewish Day Schools | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Education has been a cornerstone of Jewish life for millennia, and American Jewry’s increasing focus on affordable day school tuition reflects that priority. On the one hand, there is huge emphasis on the importance of a day school education for the future of the Jewish community. School leaders stress to parents that the value of a good dual-curriculum is well worth the expense. On the other hand, many parents told Kol HaBirah that the price tag can create a financial burden that disrupts family life, impacts family-planning decisions, or makes it harder to donate to synagogues and other communal institutions.

One local parent, who is also a Jewish day school teacher, summarized this tension in a nutshell: “As a parent, tuition is too high. As a teacher, it’s not high enough.”

Jews Comprised Less Than a Quarter of Tourists Visiting Israel in 2016 | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
 New data obtained by Israel Hayom analyzes the rising number of tourists arriving in the Jewish state, including visitors’ age, religion and the nature of their trips.

A record-high 2.9 million tourists visited Israel in 2016. According to a survey by Mertens Hoffman Management Consultants, 47 percent had already visited Israel at least once before, and 80 percent said they would be willing to visit again.

Fifty-four percent of the tourists who visited Israel last year were Christians. Of the Christian visitors, 38 percent were Catholic, 28 percent were Protestant and 28 percent were Eastern Orthodox. Jews comprised only 24 percent of tourists visiting Israel in 2016. An additional 15 percent of tourists said they had no religious affiliation. Three-percent of the tourists were Muslims, followed by Hindus, Buddhists, Baha’is and members of other religions.

Augmented Reality in Jewish Day Schools

Augmented Reality in Jewish Day Schools | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
This study has stressed the ways in which augmented reality tools can be used by teachers and students to enhance Jewish learning. We have focused on the Aurasma app since it is commonly used by educators. There are many AR apps that teach specific areas in general education, or play games. Publishers have used scannable images to add depth to their publications. Most significantly, businesses have driven up sales with AR driven campaigns. In most cases educational applications are more of an afterthought for companies aiming at the lucrative business market, and so we should not be surprised that no one has approached the generation of AR with a mindset of what would best suit an educational setting.

PBL stands for project-based or passion-based learning. Maybe it should stand for Passion-Based Living.

Summertime is for Joyous Judaism

Summertime is for Joyous Judaism | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Joyous Judaism. Yes, I want my kids to unplug, gain independence, and learn to swim but I really want them to spend their summers tending to a love that will root itself in their consciousness, and grow each summer, nurturing a lifelong relationship with their faith. I am certain that this begins at Jewish camp where the values of the Jewish people are celebrated: Menschlicheit, eretz Yisrael, kavod, kehillah and tzedakah. Certainly a tall order and one best done away from the distractions of daily life, in a kind of bubble, which is exactly what Eisner calls itself.
