Not only is it natural, it feels rewarding because the other person accepts your brilliant answer.....

“Adaptive” Learning Technologies: Pedagogy Should Drive Platform

“Adaptive” Learning Technologies: Pedagogy Should Drive Platform | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it
GUEST COLUMN | by Tim Hudson The world of ed-tech is moving rapidly. As new learning software is created, the word “adaptive” is increasingly being used in claims describing how technologies person...

 

...."DreamBox took a different approach and built an intelligent adaptive learning engine. The intelligent difference lies in the pedagogy. Wiggins and McTighe say it best in Schooling by Design: “An understanding is a learner realization about the power of an idea… Understandings cannot be given; they have to be engineered so that learners see for themselves the power of an idea for making sense of things” (p. 113). At DreamBox, our starting assumption is that students are brilliant. Their critical thinking skills are underestimated if we think understanding can be given through content delivery."

Will Apple Spark a U.S. Manufacturing Renaissance?

Will Apple Spark a U.S. Manufacturing Renaissance? | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Sometimes, PR moves end up having bigger-than-anticipated effects. Just look at auto manufacturing in the South. Today the only American-made Mac is the kind you buy under Golden Arches and eat. America's other well-known Mac, Apple's Mac computer, is manufactured in China (like all other Apple products). That's about to change. Apple announced last week that it will invest $100 million to make Macs (through third parties) in the U.S. This move makes strategic sense for Apple and is potentially important for the U.S. economy longer term....
