What's the Difference Between "Doing Projects" and "Project Based Learning"?

What's the Difference Between "Doing Projects" and "Project Based Learning"? | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

"Thanks to Amy Mayer of FriEdTechnology for this fantastic comparison describing the key differences between “doing projects” and project-based learning! This, my friends, is exactly what I have been trying so ineptly to explain to educators at my own school. There’s a BIG difference, and one that completely changes how the classroom is run and what students take out of it."

No one is immune to malware, and, though Apple users have been largely ignored by the bad guys, malware targeted at Apple machines is on the rise.

Habilidades necesarias para lograr una presentación exitosa con tu audiencia

Jean Luc lebrun's curator insight, June 9, 2014 4:46 PM

Behind these video doodles is an fun company: www.truscribe.com

What is interesting here is that the video is in perfect sync with the audio - this is why it is so powerful..

More critically, something is missing from the video: a summary. The author summarizes with "So there you have it, five things you need to know about people in order to give a better presentation", followed by a rapid zoom out revealing briefly ALL the pictures from the storyboard - too many and too fast to be of use as a memory prop.

Five may be a small number, but for our limited memory - it is huge. We have to remember five more or less disconnected ideas: 20 minute chunks, eye competes with ear, your speech is only a part of whole message (see nice screen illustration at time 3:36), call them to action, people imitate your feelings. It feels like a bullet list. The video could have brought back 5 key images corresponding to the 5 points to help anchor them in our memory.

This is why I recommend that the "take-away" slide, a.k.a. the conclusion or summary slide, refreshes people's memory by bringing back small pictures of the key visuals of the presentation next to the text points that they helped make. It does not matter if they are not fully readable, their role is simply to jog memory.

Why Confusion Can Be a Good Thing | MindShift

Why Confusion Can Be a Good Thing | MindShift | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

We all know that confusion doesn't feel good. Because it seems like an obstacle to learning, we try to arrange educational experiences and training sessions...

 

But as is so often the case when it comes to learning, our intuitions here are exactly wrong.

 

===> Scientists have been building a body of evidence over the past few years demonstrating that confusion can lead us to learn more efficiently, more deeply, more lastingly—as long as it’s properly managed. <===

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, January 24, 2013 1:48 PM

It is about power and it doesn't work, really, if your goal is self-control and internal locus of control.  

 

I also like this part:  

 

"Whenever it appears that I disagree with someone, I like to begin by figuring out where we've parted company. Is our disagreement substantive or just a function of how we're defining our terms? Is it about description (the way we think things are) or prescription (the way we think they should be)? Is it about ends or means?"  We disagree often on this topic, but the reasons vary.  I've noticed sometimes we are on the same side of the equation, but haggle over terms.  

 

With regards to rewards and punisments, people oft want to throw the baby out with the bath water.  They adopt false dilemmas and eith/or thinking.  I like that Alfie mentions this when he says he disagrees with the notion that the only alternative to punishment is permissiveness.  There is a happy middle of the road approach that gives love and teaching within boundaries.  The boundaries are really routines and procedures, mostly.  In the context of love and trust, all is well.   Teaching helps everyone learn where the boundaries are.  Genuine relationships nourish the tribe.
