I agree Andrew. Tools are tools and it's all about how you use them that counts.

Good question Thomas! I think it is an ongoing dance between learning good storytelling and then learning the tools for maximum impact.
Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:44 AM

recentlyrue recently I had to get students to use Powerpoint as the Internet connection was too slow to have them all work at once on other online presentation tools. After laying down some ground rules about effective use they amazed us with their creative responses. It is not the tool. It is how you use it. And how teachers plan for it!

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra | open resource materials in Teacher-preparation | Scoop.it

In this talk, Sugata Mitra will take us through the origins of schooling as we know it, to the dematerialisation of institutions as we know them. Thirteen years of experiments in children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, they can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the internet can learn anything by themselves. From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning.

3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic

3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic | open resource materials in Teacher-preparation | Scoop.it
Dear “Nervous To Try Something New With EdTech”: You know when you spoke with me the other day and told me that that introducing more tech into my class was fine for me because I was ‘into it’ and ‘understood’ it? That you were not going to try a new way of doing things (edtech-wise) …

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 22, 10:41 PM

I've done edtech training for nervous teachers since the days of the Apple ll and the  Commodore 64. Some things never change.  I think it's not so much the fear of tech as it is the fear of losing control of a class when the tech fails (as it always will).  


The cure? Perhaps being flexible enough to have multiple fall back positions when the tech crashes and accepting the role of teacher as learner as you learn the ropes along with your students.

Teacher quits over emphasis on standardized tests: 'It takes the joy out of learning' - TODAY.com | open resource materials in Teacher-preparation | Scoop.it

A teacher in Massachusetts who has spent more than a quarter century in the classroom is drawing attention after she quit her job over her growing frustration with the school system’s emphasis on standardized testing.

 

Because of “so many things that pulled me away from the classroom and fractured my time with the children,” kindergarten teacher Susan Sluyter quit last month. 

“It takes the joy out of learning for the children," she told TODAY. "It takes the joy out of teaching.”

Have a very similar mindset but short of opening one's own school we are stuck with it. I have just published a book leading teachers to the more fertile ground for real progress, in literacy acquisition,  of analysing student work, giving them an authentic voice, and goal setting.  It puts listening and speaking at the centre.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 2, 5:40 PM

Oh this is so cool! My good friend and biz story buddy Madelyn Blair is interviewed here by Annette Simmons (author of The Story Factor) where she talks about how to harvest our stories for wisdom. 


This is particularly important for leadership -- but also really for anyone in business who wants to maximize their work with business stories and being a compelling storyteller.


There are many qualities I love about Madelyn. She's brilliant and her book Riding the Current focuses on how we can stay up to speed in this age of information overload. In particular, she discusses how stories can help us continually engage with learning, and develop wisdom.


She talks about other topics in this interview, too -- like social media and its connection to storytelling. Plus she shares with everyone an activity any group can do to elevate mood, reveal core values, and find/transfer wisdom. Yeah!


Madelyn arrives tomorrow for a visit -- we're taking Bo Eason's storytelling workshop over the weekend, then heading to Los Angeles for meetings and a day-long get together of other biz story professionals. I can't wait to hang out with my buds, get inspired from sharing our work and progress, and be with everyone in person instead of via Skype.


OK -- enjoy this podcast. I know you will and thanks Annette for another great interview!

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 17, 2013 2:09 AM

Most people are scared enough to even go on a plan much less having to deal with some of these runways. This horrid runways include high altitude, short runways or even 90 degree turns to even advance onto the runway. Pretty scary if i might say so myself. Im surprised the St Maartens runways didn make the list with its threat of hitting a popular beach in the local proximity.

Jacqueline Landry's curator insight, December 17, 2013 4:02 PM

Some of these airports look to me as if planes won't make it. The one in Portugal goes over mountains and trees and is very short. Flying can be terrifying as it is but landing on some of these airport can be more nerve racking. This raises a question, was this the only land area these countries had to build a runway?

"Photographer Christopher Herwig has covered more than 30,000 km by car, bike, bus and taxi in 13 countries discovering and documenting these unexpected treasures of modern art. From the shores of the Black Sea to the endless Kazakh steppe, the bus stops show the range of public art from the Soviet era and give a rare glimpse into the creative minds of the time."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 6, 8:47 AM

This is a delightful glimpse into a time gone by, and what makes it even more surprising is that few would expect such creative architecture to dot the cultural landscape of the old Soviet Union.  I was recently looking at a photo gallery of old Russian Orthodox churches and just like these Soviet bus stops, they are perfect subjects for classic cultural landscape studies.  Geography students can analyze and interpret the cultural, political and economic material landscape as this photographer has.  What do these elements of the landscape mean?  How does it make us re-evaluate the society that created them?

Grammarly to check and improve your grammar | open resource materials in Teacher-preparation | Scoop.it

Even the most confident of native speakers can sometimes have doubts about their spelling and grammar. As for learners of English, getting their writing to a really high degree of proficiency can be a real challenge.

Pedagogical quality enrichment in OER based courseware: Guiding principles | Misra | Open Praxis

This is a critical phase for Open Educational Resources (OER) movement: on one side the number of OER is increasing rapidly, and on other side debates about quality of OER-based courseware are heating up. These debates emanate from the fact that OER-based courseware are supposed to help users to follow a logical learning path and get an engaging, interactive, and enjoyable learning experience. There are two aspects of quality assurance in OER-based courseware: content and pedagogy. The content aspect primarily rests with subject experts, and pedagogical quality of courseware mainly lies in the hands of developers. Present trends reveal that mainly enthusiasts, working with some support from the institution management are designing and developing OER-based courseware. There seems a possibility that these enthusiasts are developing courseware without undergoing any specific courseware development training, and in the absence of proper knowledge and training about pedagogy, one can not be sure that the produced courseware will be of superior quality. In this backdrop, present paper discusses and details about a number of guiding principles for enrichment of pedagogical quality in OER-based courseware

The ego is not poison, it is egoism that is poison. Ego means I - referred to as existence: 'I am' (astitva). To say ‘I am’, for what’s your own Self (atma) is not egoism.
