I really like how these habits are sequenced and I found them to be the habits of every successful teacher and not only those using technology.

To cut to the quick, Schank thinks Higher Education is a con. You pay through the nose for not very much more than a three or four year vacation and a good social life. The courses are poor and the system designed to select researchers.

#No! O que e como ensinamos [ensinamos?!] é consequência da má formação docente.. e formação continuada 'out', da desalorização salarial que obriga muitos a fazer bicos no tempo que poderiam estar se atualizando.. resultado das polítivas píblicas deficitárias na #edu!!

Learning about Visual Thinking Strategies

Learning about Visual Thinking Strategies | Mobile devices and education | Scoop.it

The NY Times is beginning a new feature called "What's Going on in this Picture?" This post introduces Visual Thinking Strategies (V.T.S.).

"How do you make sense of what you see when you look at an image, especially if that image comes with no caption, headline, links or other clues about its origins? What can constructing meaning from an image teach you?"

While V.T.S. uses works of visual art, the NT Times will be using photojournalism and hosting an online discussion. On Monday they will post an image "with no caption, no headline and no helpful link back to an article." The goal is to answer "What's going on in this picture?" based on what you "can gather from the image itself."
For more information click through to the article.
