The New World Order Is Ruled By Global Corporations And Megacities - Not Countries

The New World Order Is Ruled By Global Corporations And Megacities - Not Countries | kontextdenker | Scoop.it

As cities and companies gain in influence and the power of nation states decreases, the world is undergoing a seismic transformation.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 22, 4:49 PM

We all know that quite a few corporations or terrorist groups have more influence in the world than many states do, but have yet to place them all in a single framework that measures them according to their reach and relevance. And yet such a "Mindshare Matrix" is precisely what we need to properly understand the 21st century landscape of power.

 

The Planetary Archives / San Francisco, California's curator insight, April 23, 12:52 PM
Not countries, or elected representatives, and certainly not citizens.

Specialism, Generalism, Details and the Big Picture

Specialism, Generalism, Details and the Big Picture | kontextdenker | Scoop.it

There is a historic connection between interdisciplinary studies and a wider, more general higher education. Crudely, one can see that if putting two established disciplines together leads to interdisciplinarity then attempting to put four or five together may lead to a broader, more general education.

The Similarities Between Montessori And Digital Learning

The Similarities Between Montessori And Digital Learning | kontextdenker | Scoop.it

At first glance, the intersections between Montessori education and high-quality digital learning are not immediately apparent. To those of us with some knowledge about Montessori methods, its natural materials and deep traditions seem to stand in opposition to the vision of a futuristic, technology-rich digital or blended learning environment. Here are five intersections between Montessori education and digital learning that this author has observed as a parent to a Montessori preschooler, online educator and an education policy researcher.

How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading | kontextdenker | Scoop.it

"If you’re not familiar with Adler and Van Doren’s How To Read A Book, it is worth, well, reading.

As you might’ve guessed, these have less to do with decoding, and more to do with comprehension. Actually, more to do with the perspective you approach your reading with."

RIP, Nelson Mandela: Madiba’s Moving Inauguration Speech and Timeless Wisdom from His Autobiography

RIP, Nelson Mandela: Madiba’s Moving Inauguration Speech and Timeless Wisdom from His Autobiography | kontextdenker | Scoop.it

"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."

We have lost Nelson Mandela, unequaled patron saint of equality, peace, and human rights. But while the body might be gone, the spirit remains forever with us — a spirit that not only changed political history, but also tirelessly elevated humanity into a higher version of itself. In his inauguration speech, delivered on May 10, 1994, and available below in its entirety, Madiba addresses the end of apartheid in words at once timeless and timely, ringing with soul-stirring resonance today in the wake of the end of DOMA and the dawn of marriage equality, which has been called “the civil rights issue of our day.” ......

We Are The People We've Been Waiting For

The world is facing huge challenges and they're growing daily in severity, in scale and in complexity. It's no exaggeration to say that they're not going to go away. Indeed they will get worse unless we can start to find solutions and find them soon. If we're going to survive we desperately need the next generations to be smarter, more adaptable and better prepared than any that have gone before.

Our only chance is to improve the way we teach our young. To equip young people with the skills and attitudes that might steer this world of ours to a far safer place than at present looks likely. The question is... is that what our current education system does?

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 6, 2014 4:54 PM

"We are the people we've been waiting for" is a documentary about the much needed change in education. It is a few years old but the overall message is still valid today. 


I also encourage you to watch Ken Robinson's TED Talk: "How to escape education's death valley" and the RSA Animate Video: "Changing Education Paradigms."


Robinson is the author of several brilliant books on education: 


  1. Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative
  2. The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything
  3. Finding Your Element: How to Discover Your Talents and Passions and Transform Your Life


You can follow Robinson on Twitter here


Another free online documentary on our education system (US angle), ReGeneration, can be watched here

Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students

Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students | kontextdenker | Scoop.it
As education grows and changes educators have the opportunity to change the way they envision their roles and their classrooms.

 

Jobs in education, Pink said in a recent interview, are all about moving other people, changing their behavior, like getting kids to pay attention in class; getting teens to understand they need to look at their future and to therefore study harder.


At the center of all this persuasion is selling: educators are sellers of ideas.

The author of Drive talks about how to use these theories in education! 

Allan Shaw's curator insight, May 21, 2014 6:04 PM

'One of the big topics Pink tackles in his current book is the idea of moving from transactions to transcendence — to making something personal. That’s the best way to “sell” students on what they’re learning, Pink maintains. This has been a recurring theme in education: connecting what’s taught in classrooms to students’ personal lives. But, as evidenced by current school dynamics, that’s not the way the tide is moving.

“Most of our education is heavily, heavily, heavily standardized,” Pink said. ... The idea that you treat everybody the same way is foolish, and yet the headwinds in education are very much toward routines, right answer, standardization.”

Why is it moving this way? One of the reasons, Pink said, is the “appalling” absence of leadership on this issue. “One of the things that I see as an outsider is that so much of education policy seems designed for the convenience of adults rather than the education of children,” he said.... "Why do we have standardized testing? Because it’s unbelievably cheap. If you want to give real evaluations to kids, they have to be personalized, tailored to the kids, at the unit of one. Standardized testing: totally easy, totally cheap, and scales. Convenient for politicians and taxpayers.”

cioccas's curator insight, May 21, 2014 6:07 PM

Think a lot of this is relevant to teaching language to adults too - supporting autonomy, etc.
