This interactive map/timeline takes users (shared before but the URL has been updated here) around the world through the major events representing the expansion of human knowledge.  Admittedly, this is represents knowledge from a Eurocentric perspective, but that is somewhat appropriate in this instance since that was the largest store of spatial knowledge as this global information coalesced.  Users can visualize the coordination of absolute space and realize the actions undertaken that shifted geography from its predecessor, cosmology.  Each achievement came through intensive exploration and the detailed mapping of those endeavors.

I choose this resource becuase it makes the intial connection that learners are changing and therefore so does the way we need to motivate them.

Heather Harriso's curator insight, October 23, 2015 10:26 PM

A great article that explains and gives further insight on engagement best practices for busy e-learners.  Many adult learners are working full time jobs and balancing families along with college.  Overwhelmed with work, work, work, this article focuses on small snippets to reach students. This is extremely helpful in higher ed and career colleges. 

Jennifer Colin's curator insight, October 24, 2015 1:53 PM

Of any title that has attracted me to an article, this has got to be the winner.  Today's learners ARE distracted, impatient, overwhelmed, and unmotivated, and teachers are often at a loss as to what they can do about it.  I was disappointed to discover, upon reading further, that the article is catered specifically toward eLearning. However, some of the information can still be applied to the traditional classroom.  Tips such as keeping lessons as brief and to the point as possible, using visuals to help with recall, and making lessons interactive to grab and keep the learners' attention, can be helpful reminders to teachers.  In a society that is increasingly adopting an "I need it right NOW" mentality, it is becoming more difficult to keep learners engaged.  But as administrators we need to be all the more diligent about helping teachers find ways to do so.

Is Praise Undermining Student Motivation?

Is Praise Undermining Student Motivation? | Teaching & Learning & Leadership | Scoop.it
The failure of praise
Research has found that praise can actually undermine performance and self-esteem in many contexts. One study found that praise for intelligence leads to the belief by the recipient that their intelligence is fixed, and thus not something that they can influence through action or effort (Dweck, 2007). This is critical because intelligence is in fact malleable, and improved by taking risks. Students grow when they try something difficult that might lead to failure. Because failure is one of the most important tools for learning, growth requires a mindset that embraces challenge and the potential for failure.

"Positive and negative feedback are tied to objective standards of excellence, and give the message that the goal of education is to reach standards of excellence, not gain teacher approval." And there you have it.

Lisa Jones's comment, January 11, 2015 8:27 AM
http://www.aft.org/periodical/american-educator/winter-2005-2006/ask-cognitive-scientist. Check out this article on praise. I found it to be very interesting and the parameters for praise given here are some good practices to follow when giving praise. It can be done with without undermining student motivation. Don't let "titles" get in the way...call it praise or feedback...we all need and instinctively give one form or the other. Both articles are a great read!

Praise is an incentive. Every one likes to be praised for work well done.

Amanda Kennedy's curator insight, April 6, 2014 6:09 PM

This chart breaks down all of the crucial aspects of a positive classroom climate. The intellectual, social, emotional, and physical components of a classroom all contribute to the overall climate, well-being of students, and potential for project based learning to occur. To create a climate that supports children intellectually teachers must create authentic tasks that are meaningful and challenging, such as project-based learning assignments. For the social aspect of a child, teachers must ensure that children are given the opportunity to work with their peers on assignments. Also, teachers need to make sure that their students feel safe and comfortable enough in their classroom to approach them with any questions or concerns that they might have. To create a classroom climate that supports the emotional development of your students you need to be sure to identify and value the unique backgrounds of all of your students, such as through activities like "Me Stew". As for the physical component or "space" in a classroom, classrooms need to be open and invite students to interact with their peers when they need to do so. Students need to have easy access to all of the materials that they need to complete their assignments and projects successfully. If all of these components of classroom climate are met, children will be provided with a positive classroom environment that promotes student learning and fosters creativity.

What looks, on its surface, to be a simple shift can have some powerful consequences with regards to student engagement. I believe Dr. Robinson has hit the nail on the head - especially with libraries. School libraries are the PERFECT place to realize this shift and exemplary librarians have been doing just that for a while now.

Jackie Gerstein shares nine questions that you might consider asking yourself as you design new units. Two are listed below. The infographic she designed, with nine questions is in the image above, and you can access a list of the nine questions as well as the infographic in her post.

* Will the learners get the chance to share their work with other learners with a more global audience?

* Will the learners find the learning activities engaging? interesting? relevant? useful?

Gerstein's questions help you focus on the learner.They may help you transform lessons in ways you had not envisioned.
