Tuloerojen kasvu ei tarkoita automaattisesti köyhyyden lisääntymistä. Jos esim. Björn Wahlroosin tulot kasvavat nopeammin kuin minun, ei se minulta pois ole. Pitää tarkastella tuloerojen sijaan absoluuttisen köyhyyden määrää.

50 Great Content Curators - Ana Cristina Pratas via @CrowdFunde

50 Great Content Curators - Ana Cristina Pratas via @CrowdFunde | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Ana Cristina Pratas
My friend @Ana Cristina Pratas is our 2nd "Great Content Curator" to be profiled on CrowdFunde. Ana Cristina's joyful curation always lifts my spirits while teaching ideas and connections hard to imagine without her.

Ana Cristina is leading the charge of a new tribe of educators who understand the "deep learning" possible from content curation (see This Is Your Brian On Content Curation http://sco.lt/6NqXKr ). Ana was the 2nd curator to crest 1M views on Scoop.it, but numbers don't tell the whole story.

Every interaction I have with Ana Cristina I learn something, feel inspired and want to CREATE SOMETHING (lol). She is an inspiring leader, a great educator and a content curation treasure.

Teaching Students to Fail

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, April 13, 3:22 PM

The article discusses failures and how students can learn resilience and optimism. Three dimensions:

 

1) Teachers should pay attention to character education (non-cognitive skills). Optimism can be learned, for example by enouraging flexible thinking. In short, input from positive psychology should be implemented.

 

2) Gamification, if successfully integrated, can produce failure-resilence. 

 

3) Teachers sharing personal stories of failures and joys of overcoming them. Role playing.

What Types of E-Books Are Best for Young Readers?

What Types of E-Books Are Best for Young Readers? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Could e-books actually get in the way of reading? In a study looking at students’ use of e-books created with Apple’s iBooks Author software, the Schugars discovered that the young readers often skipped over the text altogether, engaging instead with the books’ interactive visual features.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 16, 11:04 PM

Do students retain more information from e-books or from traditional books? Some studies have shown that they retain more from traditional books but this post shares research that take stock of the features of e-books, noting that "the very “richness” of the multimedia environment that e-books provide—touted as their advantage over printed books—may actually overwhelm kids’ limited working memory, leading them to lose the thread of the narrative or to process the meaning of the story less deeply."

The post provides suggestions of books that provide multimedia that is beneficial as well as ways to effectively use ebooks with young children.

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

@Jaana Nyström is a great curator and she just beat me to the punch :). When she shared her EPIC journey of using G+ to move from "nobody" to "somebody" I planned to blog about her amazing journey. The content and message was too good to be trapped in comments.

Read this post CAREFULLY as you may recognize where you are on Jaana's timeline of personal brand development. There are several "inside baseball" tips to pay particular attention to including:

* Don't worry about perfection, start publishing.
* G+ is an AMAZING and vastly under used tool (start there add more social nets later).
* No matter what, keep turning the crank (keep going) since the only sin you and your personal band can't recover from is NOT PLAYING.

Great stuff from an amazing curator. What lessons did you learn from Jaana Nystrom? What similar lessons have you learned as you create a meaningful personal brand?
