Learning by doing has always been a pattern to master a craft. This is particularly true for the  new-normal which cannot simply be taught as it is not there yet. 

What i mean is that the higher skill of entrepreneurship must be mastered in the same way: by doing, but with an OS that enables better results

4 Ways To Keep Students From Giving Up Before They Even Begin.

 

It happens a million times a day in schools: a teacher starts a lesson. The strong students seize on the new learning opportunity. Typical students figure out enough of what they have to do to succeed. But students who struggle in school may flare up, or shut down, at this critical juncture. These challenging students often react before they give themselves a chance.

In understanding the shift from literacy to digital literacy–or rather to understand them both in their own native contexts–it may help to take a look at the underlying assumptions of digital literacy.

This means looking at what’s changing, why it’s changing, and what that means for education.

Best Sources for Open Educational Resources Used By Educators - EdTechReview™

Best Sources for Open Educational Resources Used By Educators - EdTechReview™ | Making responsibility for the crises of our times a priority in the classroom | Scoop.it
Here are the best sources for Open Educational Resources (OER) suggested by expert educators.

 

Education is a fundamental human right and as important as the primary basic needs. It improves one’s knowledge, gives one a broader view of the world around us and how things work, reduces the social and economic disparity, thus propagating equality and also raises one's self esteem.

But the world’s overall educational statistics aren’t up to the mark, only 22% of the world's children finish high school and only 55% finish sixth grade. Noticing these drawbacks, many educators, administrators and startups have started creating awareness on education. Introduction of technology into the educational field creates a revolution in student learning. Unlike olden days, people nowadays have numerous sources to get quality education at low costs or even free of cost. Tutorials of high qualified professors, materials from well-established universities and courses on numerous topics from around the world are available on Web. The above mentioned things come under Open Educational Resources (OER).
