Four Reasons to Worry About "Personalized Learning" - Alfie Kohn

Tocqueville’s observations about the curious version of democracy that Americans were cultivating in the 1830s have served as a touchstone for social scientists ever since.

Some of these channels will be familiar to you, and unfortunately a couple no longer exist. Do check out YouTube EDU and The American Museum of  Natural History. They could be useful for your students and classes.

A Great Periodic Table to Enhance Students Writing Skills ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great Periodic Table to Enhance Students Writing Skills ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | online teaching | Scoop.it
Figurative speech is the language we use to spice up our writing. Besides their aesthetic value , figurative expressions and axioms cast a flavour of 'writerly professionalism' on the written piece. It does take so much practice for students to be adept at the use of figurative language and there are no shortcuts to learn that quickly. There are however some useful tips to help them in their learning process. Periodic table of the figures of speech is an example of a very good document students can draw on to consolidate and learn different ways to use figures of speech.

Liberal Education, Soft Skills, and Success

Liberal Education, Soft Skills, and Success | online teaching | Scoop.it

A prior question -- should I go to college? -- has a definitive economic answer. College may not be right for everyone, but many studies have demonstrated that simply possessing a baccalaureate degree typically means much higher earnings throughout one's life, a fact even clearer today than in previous generations.

But in a world that seems increasingly to equate learning and career preparation, many commentators are skeptical that students are acquiring the skills that will translate well into the marketplace. Two recent surveys of employers done by the Chronicle of Higher Education and the Workforce Solutions Group at St. Louis Community College, respectively, reveal their frustration with graduates who have not been adequately prepared for the job market.

These frustrations may not be what you think. Rather than lamenting the absence of technical or similar job-specific skills, many employers say that too many college graduates lack communication and decision-making ability, an understanding of how to think independently but also to work in teams, to solve complex problems and to construct cogent arguments.

 

They lack, we're told, an understanding of leadership, creativity, and emotional intelligence. In other words, it isn't primarily the "hard skills" that these graduates lack, but the so-called "soft skills.
