I love this! This is why the arts (typically thought of more highly related to creative thinking) are being seen, more and more, as an integral part of science and math (typically seen as a spot for critical thinking).

100 Incredible Science Lectures For The Flipped Classroom

100 Incredible Science Lectures For The Flipped Classroom | Orenda Springs Marcellus, NY | Scoop.it

"Open source, for both the classroom and the self-educator, proves an absolutely swoon-worthy digital ocean of information. Unsurprisingly, the sciences thrive in such a climate, with the Internet positively flooded with panels, lectures, Q&As, talks, complete and incomplete classes, demonstrations, and other conduits through which education flows."

Experiential Mobile Learning Activities Presentation

Experiential Mobile Learning Activities Presentation | Orenda Springs Marcellus, NY | Scoop.it

By Jackie Gerstein

 

I am presenting workshops on Experiential Mobile Learning Activities at the Digital Media Literacy Conference 2012 and the Mobile Learning Experience 2012. What follows is the slide deck from and a description of my presentation.

 

This interactive, experiential BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) workshop has its foundation in two guiding principles: (1) Building a sense of community in the classroom helps address the whole learner including achievement and academic success, and (2) Mobile devices are extensions of young people. As such, they should be leveraged in the classroom.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, January 28, 2013 7:47 AM

Love those boys!!!!!!

 

"The school analyzed the natural assets that both girls and boys bring to learning  Douglass realized that its classrooms were generally a better fit for the verbal-emotive, sit-still, take-notes, listen-carefully, multitasking girl. Teachers tended to view the natural assets that boys bring to learning—impulsivity, single-task focus, spatial-kinesthetic learning, and physical aggression—as problems. By altering strategies to accommodate these more typically male assets, Douglass helped its students succeed, as the following vignettes illustrate"

 

Essentially, this is about empathy.  If you can think like them, you can teach FOR them!

Should I teach problem-, project-, or inquiry-based learning? | Orenda Springs Marcellus, NY | Scoop.it

"Lately, there have been a bunch of buzzwords floating around the education world that all seem to mean the same thing. You’ve probably heard them: problem-based learning, project-based learning and inquiry-based learning. Is there a difference? How will you know which one to do in your classroom?"

The idea of graduating high school is supposed to be exciting: the beginning of a brand new life filled with experience and opportunity. But, when I thought about graduating from high school, I wasn’t excited; I was terrified.

Doug Mirams's curator insight, February 11, 2013 6:14 PM

“We let the building be a teacher and create fun and interactive environments,” [Architect Reese Rowland] said. “It’s a place where they can read and unwind and just hang out, a place that the library can sponsor programs and enhance and connect with the neighborhood as well.”

One of those ways it will connect with its neighbourhood is by using food. The new library will have a teaching kitchen, a greenhouse and gardens built on the edge of the property.

Other features include meeting rooms built to mimic the feeling of tree houses, an outdoor space beyond the gardens, a 100-150 seat performance theatre and room to grow, all within walking distance to its surrounding community.
