This Is What Supercontinent Pangea Looks Like Mapped With Modern Borders

This Is What Supercontinent Pangea Looks Like Mapped With Modern Borders | On education | Scoop.it
Imagine traveling from China to Antarctica, crossing through Canada, Brazil and India – without setting foot in any water. Unfortunately, you’ve missed your chance by about 300 million years as the supercontinent of Pangea no longer exists. But thanks to the illustrative talents of Massimo Pietrobon, you can see how Pangea may have looked before the epic landmass started ripping itself apart 200 million years ago to form the continents and countries of the world today.

Dale Dougherty, Father of the Maker movement talks about breaking rules, erasers & building a learning culture (EdSurge News)

Dale Dougherty, Father of the Maker movement talks about breaking rules, erasers & building a learning culture (EdSurge News) | On education | Scoop.it

by Betsy Corcoran

 

"Making represents the kind of informal learning that happens mostly outside of school. Part of me didn't want to see it in school because it would lose its magic if it was to become defined as curriculum. I want making to flourish as something we do because we discover it and love to do it -- not because we are forced to do it. I've also come to think that rather than having making fit into school, we should transform our schools so that this kind of informal learning is given greater emphasis and so-called formal learning de-emphasized. 

"Certainly, I would like more and more young people to have the opportunity to become makers, and having makerspaces in schools and library seems like the best way to reach more of them. I've been excited by the progress I'm seeing. I have to say that making is the only thing in education that is getting adopted as the result of grassroots initiatives. It's bottom-up, not top-down. 

"I believe that one of the lasting impacts of the maker movement is to transform our education system, replacing a standardized curriculum and testing with learn-by-doing experiential learning. Kids will lead the way, saying "I don't learn the way they are teaching." That's how the next generation will learn that they have the freedom to become productive and creative."

Jan Neumann: Open Educational Resources als universelle Lernmittelbibliothek | On education | Scoop.it

"Der Begriff „Bibliothek“ kommt aus dem Griechischen und bezeichnet ursprünglich eine „Bücherkiste“. Im Laufe der Jahrhunderte hat sich die Bibliothek weiterentwickelt, aus der Kiste sind Gebäude geworden und neben Büchern kann man inzwischen weitere Medien wie z. B. Zeitschriften, Filme, E-Books und vieles mehr ausleihen. Auch wenn sich der Raum der Bibliothek zunehmend virtualisiert, beschreibt das Bild der Bücherkiste immer noch gut, was den Kern einer Bibliothek ausmacht: Eine Bibliothek ist eine Sammlung von verschiedenen Medieneinheiten."
