The secret to creativity, intelligence and scientific thinking: Being able to make connections

The secret to creativity, intelligence and scientific thinking: Being able to make connections | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it
When we shared this image from the @buffer Twitter account recently, it got me thinking. The Tweet resulted in over 1,000 retweets, which somehow was an indication that a lot of people seemed to agree with this statement.

nice way to show how knowledge becomes competency via experience

DEBOIS's curator insight, January 28, 7:35 AM

Cet article propose 3 pistes pour établir des connexions et doper votre créativité :

- Ajouter de la connaissance, en réalisant des expériences nouvelles et transgressives par rapport à vos habitudes;

- Gardez des traces de toutes vos idées, et spécialement celles qui apparaissent de façon fugace sous la douche;

- Revoyez vos notes quotidiennement en adoptant la méthode Benjamin Franklin > demandez-vous ce que vous allez faire de bien au cours de votre journée au réveil, et ce que vous avez fait de bien lors de votre journée au coucher.

Engaging e-Portfolios in an Independent Learning Process

Engaging e-Portfolios in an Independent Learning Process | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, December 2, 2013 10:24 PM
Abstract

This study investigates the use of e-portfolios in an independent learning process of learners in English as a second language (ESL). In this study, the instructor uses e-portfolios to manage the self-learning records of learners, to allow learners to interact with peers, and to evaluate performance outcomes. Learners record their self-learning activities using e-portfolios in which they submit and archive the activities they have done. The learners interact with one another through e-portfolios to enhance their learning. By using mixed methodology (survey, interview, instructor’s feedback report and analysis of e-portfolios), this study explores how the use of e-portfolios can help in learners’ independent learning process in English. The results indicate that learners have a mixed feeling towards the use of e-portfolios to assist their language learning experience. It is still uncertain that e-portfolio meets the needs of learners and provides an efficient and effective way to archive their tasks and facilitate peer feedback. This study also discusses the challenges that users of e-portfolios face in the process of English-language instruction, and the implications of the use of e-portfolios in language learning. It is hoped that the study will enable clearer focus to be given to the use of e-portfolios at both local and international levels.

Can Teens Learn Empathy?

Can Teens Learn Empathy? | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Most of us are familiar with the raging hormones and insensitive outbursts typically associated with the teen years. But is it true that there is little a parent can do to instill kindness and compassion during this time?  According to arecent article in the Wall Street Journal by Sue Shellenbarger, “biology, not parenting, is to blame” for the lack of empathy and selfish behavior during adolescence.

5 Best Practices for Educators on Facebook

5 Best Practices for Educators on Facebook | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Facebook has been pegged as a waste of time, a classroom disruption and a bad habit that is correlated with low grades. Missouri even went so far as to ban Facebook and other social media relationships between teachers and students (the law was later repealed).

But teachers such as Reynol Junco — who recently published a study that shows certain types of Facebook use are correlated with higher GPAs — are beginning to look at ways that they can use Facebook to their advantage.

William Kwon's comment, December 8, 2011 9:50 PM
I really enjoyed this post because it reminded me of what Facebook could be used to do to support students at risk who are too nervous to even ask questions, example through using Face book Groups. Many adminsitrators have an immediate aversion to facebook and don't see its possibilites as a learning and modertated group discussion tool.
