Academic Teaching Doesn’t Prepare Students for Life

Academic Teaching Doesn’t Prepare Students for Life | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Academics. Most of our current school system revolves around it, and yet, I think it falls miserably short of what our kids need. To be honest, I think our academic system of education is highly overrated, at best.

Celebrating The 7 Habits Of Successful Students

Celebrating The 7 Habits Of Successful Students | Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"We’ve talked about habits of successful teachers. We’ve discussed the Habits of Mind. We’ve even discussed new currencies for 21st century learners.

 

We haven’t, though, talked much about the kinds of habits that create successful students. Stephen Covey, of business organization and leadership fame, has turned his “habits” shtick into an empire–one that entered the classroom years ago with his 7 habits of success students, seen below."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 20, 2013 9:30 PM

This post discusses five games that help student develop critical thinking skills and to build good arguments. The games are:
* Quandary - This game has you develop a colony in outer space. Students need to help settle disputes and solve problems.
* Citizen Science - Another game that requires you to use persuasive skills to help solve problems but these problems are related to science.
* Argument Wars -This game is part of iCivics. Students "use their persuasive abilities by arguing a real Supreme Court case". This site provides resources including lesson plans and worksheets as well as a teacher's guide.

* The Republia Times - A game that typically takes 10 minutes or so, the student becomes the editor of a paper and has to curate the front page.

* Papers, Please - In this game the student is an immigration officer in a ficticious country and must make decisions based on evidential arguments presented.

More information on each game is available in the post as well as links to each.

While technology changes quickly, new avenues open all the time for learning and education.

Our economy changes as well, from a world of manufacturing and fulfilling basic needs, to  highly specialized products and services created in quickly evolving technology and social media.

Startups are becoming an economic model that allow new ideas to develop and being injected into mainstream business.

The way we educate ourselves and our children changes thoroughly. Almost from the day our children are born they get very different toys than we did. They learn how to think in new ways.

Games  better teach us some great skills. This is a great article. Good to see how education evolves with technology.

What Is Social Learning (And Does It Work)? - Edudemic | Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Distance learning, e-learning, mobile learning, blended learning.

 

There are a slew of educational learning trends that have been happening for years now. And now, we’re adding social learning to the mix. The something-learning trend is continuing to move forward, this time putting popular social media to use.

Ivo Nový's curator insight, December 19, 2013 2:14 PM

The term Social Learning was coined by Bandura, a behavioural Psychologist, in 1977. His Social Learning Theory states that children learn through observing the behaviour of adults and copying, or modelling their behaviour. We learn by observing the behaviour of others in our environment and seek acceptance in society by imitating others.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 19, 2013 3:39 PM

We have to be careful. There is a considerably more Internet access, but is it accessible for all?

Blogging is an effective way to illustrate expertise, personality, and most importantly, thought process. The way product managers, UX designers, and other “non-technical” rolesthink, communicates their ability and culture fit. Resumes lack this entirely.
