Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, April 22, 2013 4:35 PM

This is so very true. People develop a real meaningful reason for learning or the learning will have much less staying power. I love what this article points out. Teacher's function best if they provide guidance for the process and monitor success.

Thomas C. Thompson's curator insight, April 26, 2013 2:53 PM

I like the debate this could start in my classroom!

Meri Walker's comment, May 1, 2013 3:40 PM
It's been so long since I could call anyone a "student" with a straight face. I call people participants and learners... because the "student" label means I'm a "teacher" and I'm not...I'm a learner, too.

Teach U.S. kids to write computer code

Teach U.S. kids to write computer code | Learning in the Media | Scoop.it
Douglas Rushkoff says digital literacy is not a priority in our schools, impeding kids' understanding of the digital world and crippling U.S. competitiveness.

 

8. Computer Science is not just a STEM -- science, technology, engineering and math -- subject, but a liberal art as well. Being able to think critically about digital media environments means being able to think critically about our world.

 

YES!!! This is so true, we need to think beyond the strict definitions of technology and computers. Computer technology is integrated into our social structure, and it needs to be treated that way.

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer | Learning in the Media | Scoop.it

In a traditional classroom, the teacher is the center of attention, the owner of knowledge and information. Teachers often ask questions of their students to gauge comprehension, but it’s a passive model that relies on students to absorb information they need to reproduce on tests. What would happen if the roles were flipped and students asked the questions?
