Allan Shaw's curator insight, April 14, 2013 3:55 PM

"The shift is from learning content to learning how to learn.

The takeaways for teachers probably start with the role of the student in the learning process: voice, choice, personalization, self-direction, project-based learning, and other low-hanging fruit of current trends in learning.

Bigger picture, the conclusions are probably more directed with educational structures, the form of curriculum, and school design."

The micro needs to be worked on in school. The macro needs to be addressed by school and system leaders. Thanks Gust!

Could you add any more dimensions to this list? How about applying a Field Force Tool at a staff meeting?

The ART Of Collaboration (Collaborative Behaviours)

The ART Of Collaboration (Collaborative Behaviours) | Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it
If people are given the right tools and the right environment, will they spontaneously collaborate and share knowledge? Why do some people find it difficult to share and collaborate? Would incentives and rewards make a difference?

 

Collaboration in the workplace is now high on the priority list of many organisations seeking to leverage social technologies to free-up knowledge and provide opportunities for co-creation, co-production and innovation.

 

Gust MEES: I was one of the TOP10 Knol authors (Google Knol discontinued its service as on May 1, 2012) and I was involved in a lot of collaborative articles with multicultural authors and it was a very positive experience... I hope one day having the same opportunity back again on WordPress now...

 

One of our "old knols" (created on  November 02, 2010 [we were pioneers]) is being migrated to WordPress here if you would like to check it:

Creativity and diversity. To add value and meaning

Creativity and diversity. To add value and meaning | Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

Maybe “design” can help in understanding the importance of cultural diversity and interdisciplinarity.

 

Why?

Because, “to design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit; it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade and even perhaps to amuse.”-Paul Rand

Innovation Excellence | 3 Ways To Productively Rest Your Brain

Innovation Excellence | 3 Ways To Productively Rest Your Brain | Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

By Matthew E. May - with thanks, via Jim Lerman, Gust Mees:

 

"Neuroscientific research is beginning to shed light on the idea that to be more productive and creative, we need to make break-taking a regular practice. In his recent bestselling book Imagine: How Creativity Works, Jonah Lehrer writes:

 

“While it’s commonly assumed that the best way to solve a difficult problem is to relentlessly focus, this clenched state of mind comes with a hidden cost: it inhibits the sort of creative connections that lead to breakthroughs. We suppress the very type of brain activity that should be encouraged.”

 

"The challenge, though, is that we’re generally reticent to take those breaks, especially when it comes to our work and business. But many of us might not know an effective brain-rest technique aside from the obvious (take deep breaths, close your eyes) and the time-consuming (who has time to meditate for hours or take yoga three days a week?). So here are three targeted, quick and easy ways to rest your brain and maximize productivity."
