Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 12, 2013 10:42 PM

- the image above is a great encapsulation of learning as it stands now for many, the mix between ‘have-to’, ‘need-to’, and ‘want-to’, nicely grouped into School, Work, and Life. Thankfully there is little in my learning that is ‘have-to’, a little of ‘need-to’ and plenty of ‘want-to’ – perhaps this is why I like what I do and have a passion be better at it?

Motivation for learning; Life, work or school?

Video-How Youth Learn: A Ned Talk

"If you're a teenage speaker brought in to address a crowd of teachers on the subject of how you and your peers learn best . . . what are you going to say? "I — have no clue," Ned Cephalus nervously says from behind the podium. "I'm just a very average teenage brain"—complete with backpack, zits, and a journal he keeps about school. Yet in this funny and fast-paced "NED talk," Ned knocks out eight powerful conditions of learning that can change everything for students."

What better way to discover how learners learn best but to ask a learner. This graphically engaging and funny video where Ned Cephalus shares the eight powerful conditions of learning gives "food for thought" and should get you thinking about why it may be important to understand how learners learn best.

Adam Atodl's curator insight, February 6, 2013 3:48 PM

Funny, but insightfu - and I love these drawing animations :-)

Denise Cruz's curator insight, March 18, 10:45 AM

Ms. Cruz's students: Locating information on websites is a valuable skill which you need to develop to be a successful student. Use one PowerPoint design themed slide to complete the assignment then upload it to Edmodo. Play one of the games for 10 turns and take a screenshot of your completed game including the score. Answer the following questions on the slide using Smart Art. What is the name of the project, who can fund the project, how is the project able to increase its visual content, when was the project established, where was the project started? 
Remember your audience, your slide should be visually appealing and clutter free. Earn 50 XP. Close date 3/19/14.
