Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students

Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students | Social Media at Education | Scoop.it

In his new book To Sell is Human, author Daniel Pink reports that education is one of the fastest growing job categories in the country. And with this growth comes the opportunity to change the way educators envision their roles and their classrooms. Guided by findings in educational research and neuroscience, the emphasis on cognitive skills like computation and memorization is evolving to include less tangible, non-cognitive skills, like collaboration and improvisation.

Steven Sutantro's insight:

We should not standardize people at the same level coz everyone is unique. We should differentiate people at their uniqueness.

If change is needed then as facilitators let us acknowledge the intrinsic motivators and not the extrinsic ones.

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes | Social Media at Education | Scoop.it

I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.

 

It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.

 

If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.

 

The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.

Both org and .com variants of Wordpress are a delight to use, I have sued them for years, had to abandon my hosted Wordpress blog when I upgraded my website.  I miss it.
