#Compétences pour le XXIe siècle.  Très exhaustif, mais peu contestable. Le nouveau référentiel sur les compétences de base est toute même plus simple et facile à appréhender. Sans doute faudra -t il passer un jour des compétences à des concepts plus évolués de  "conscience" ...

Using Social Media in Education to Effect Positive Global Change

Using Social Media in Education to Effect Positive Global Change | Positive futures | Scoop.it

When environmental disasters occur and there are social uprisings of oppressed peoples of the world, no longer do we have to rely on mainstream media, which are often in the pocket of powerful political interests.

We now have Twitter, which in my view is one of the most powerful tools for social change and raisingglobal awareness we have ever had!  Through my own proactive participation on Twitter, I have been able to take part in positive social movements for change in unison with those of like mind.

As the old saying goes: "A picture is worth a thousand words." This also reminds me of Malcomb Gladwell's book, "Blink." Amazon: http://amzn.to/13AalVQ

It's all about images now. 

Bruce McDuffee's curator insight, August 20, 2013 2:53 PM

It's important to keep in mind your audience and how the ideal prospect likes to consume content.  Scientists or engineers for example my consume or respect different media than consumers of clothing or electronics.

The Missing Piece -- How Social and Emotional Learning Can Empower Children and Transform Schools

The Missing Piece -- How Social and Emotional Learning Can Empower Children and Transform Schools | Positive futures | Scoop.it
Arithmetic and higher math skills are embedded in school goals, but not necessarily persistence and grit. As a result, an "either/or" dynamic has been established that prioritizes academic skills, at the expense of "social and emotional" learning.

Musings of a (New) Education Insurgent | I hereby declare myself an education rebel

Musings of a (New) Education Insurgent | I hereby declare myself an education rebel | Positive futures | Scoop.it
SHIFT PARADIGM | by Mark E. Weston The system of schooling to which I have dedicated my life seems incapable of educating all students to high levels of learning


Taking those lessons to heart, I hereby declare myself an education rebel who will no longer work to save the educational system for which I’ve long toiled.


Further, I vow to work to create, nurture, and give voice to an educational alternative that employs proven educational practices—real and individualized differentiated instruction, real and serious engagement of parents, ubiquitous access to information for all, and consistent and relevant feedback about performance—that will produce aptitude-defying-levels of learning among all students. I will work for new paradigm schools and technological tools.


I make this declaration knowing full well that being a rebel will be lots of work because lots of vested interests will work just as hard to maintain the dysfunctional status quo.


Join me in this space for regular updates about the education revolution. Your comments, suggestions, feedback and constructive criticism are welcome!

We should not work to save a School system which is always in need of repair and reconstructing. We should work in reconstructing rather than reorganizing deck chairs on a sinking ship.

The Soldiers & the Schoolteachers: An Unlikely Coalition Committed to Liberating Genius in America

The Soldiers & the Schoolteachers: An Unlikely Coalition Committed to Liberating Genius in America | Positive futures | Scoop.it
Together, as an unlikely coalition of soldiers and schoolteachers, politicians and pastors, and business leaders and bankers we can lead the change we want to see--beginning right now.

 

Over the past 20 years, the Internet and technology have changed the world, and the workplace, dramatically. Unfortunately, most students today receive an education substantially similar to what their parents received in the 1970s and 1980s, even as the demands of the job market today are dramatically different than what their parents encountered, and continue to morph every day.

 

Instead of encouraging critical and creative thinking in our children, many of our schools demand that students memorize predetermined answers, or study predetermined methods to deliver the predetermined solution.

 

Instead of creating opportunities to spur kids to "color outside the lines" or "think outside the box," we reward them for turning off their imaginations and toeing the line, or staying in line. No questions asked.

Very useful insight into how we guide and educate our youth. Interesting idea of "situation creator" as well, creating opportunities to belong, seeing that we are stronger being connected than on our own.
