Helping the Poor in Education: The Power of a Simple Nudge

Helping the Poor in Education: The Power of a Simple Nudge | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The enormous financial inequalities in the United States are mirrored in education participation and completion rates: A child born into a poor family has only a 9 percent chance of getting a college degree, but the odds are 54 percent for a child in a high-income family. Whilst it may be difficult to change the financial inequalities, it is possible to provide some educational assistance to the disadvantaged by providing motivational “nudges” at appropriate times.

Excellent Video Tutorials to Help You Sketchnote on iPad

Excellent Video Tutorials to Help You Sketchnote on iPad | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"After posting about top iPad apps for creating sketchnotes, I received a couple of requests for sharing video tutorials on sketchnoting on iPad. The videos below are probably the best tutorials you would find out there.  These are the videos I used myself when I first started learning about sketchnoting. There are also some other great resources where you would find more materials and helpful guides on how to create electronic sketchnotes. The first thing I would recommend in this regard is Mike Rohde's book " The Sketchnote Handbook". It is a short book which you can read in a single reading session. This book is particularly useful for beginners who have just started muddling their way through sketchnoting. Another great resource is Kathy Schrock's sketchnoting page which contains a lot of links, tutorials and examples of excellent sketchnotes. You can also use twitter hashtag #sketchnotes to browse through links and resources sketchnoters share their."

UK Universities Gear Up For Enterprise Education

UK Universities Gear Up For Enterprise Education | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

According to figures published by the UK Government’s Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) around 11% of 18 to 24 year olds aspire to start their own businesses compared with just 3% of those aged  55 to 65.

Trevor Clawson, Contributor to Forbes:

So if the figures are correct, a significant number of young people are currently leaving schools and universities with the aim of wither working for themselves or employing others. And this in turn poses challenges for Britain’s universities, schools and further education colleges. Traditionally the role of educators has been to turn out successive generations with skills and qualities necessary to become ‘good employees.’ Today there is an increasing awareness that it is also important to encourage and support an enterprise culture – and not just in terms of supporting technology spin-outs.

Using Technology To Redefine The Way Schools & Communities Connect

Using Technology To Redefine The Way Schools & Communities Connect | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Technology, so far, hasn’t healed the disconnect between schools and communities, but that could be because we’re selling it short for what it can do—which might start with not seeing its potential fully. Today, popular uses are sharing grades, missing work, test dates, snow days, and basic school announcements. This isn’t nearly good enough.

Terry Heick discusses "How To Connect Schools And Communities Using Technology", including:

Solicit mentoring relationships

Connecting students to the artists, architects, engineers, makers, writers, farmers, cooks, and other “roles” for the purpose of mentoring and apprenticeship is one way to begin to repair the disconnect between schools and communities.

Connect with community leaders

This one is closely related to the idea of “mentoring” in the sense that it connects students with people outside of the classroom from their community. But rather than for the purpose of mentoring, it could be less involved—topical but authentic communication between those leading the community, and those living in it, and social media is the perfect way to make it happen.

(Infographic) STEM and STEAM - Daily Genius

(Infographic) STEM and STEAM - Daily Genius | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
There is a lot of talk about the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in education. Schools, governments, and businesses are hoping that today’s STEM students can solve tomorrow’s global issues. The importance of a quality education has not been lost on me. I’ve gone from a liberal arts university to some highly-technical professions and back (and forth). This has left me with a well-rounded amount of experience in all the STEM subjects.



But there’s more to education than getting a STEM job. A lot more.

That’s why a new term is gaining *ahem* steam. It’s called STEAM and it’s the idea of incorporating arts into a STEM-based curriculum. In other words, let’s help students think more creatively and better understand the problems they’re already working to solve

Big Idea 2015: Let's Rethink the Bachelor's Degree - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In the face of an increasing average student-loan debt and 44 percent for graduates ages 22 to 27 taking jobs that don’t require bachelor’s degrees, it is tempting to question the worth of college education. But rather than throwing out degrees altogether, it is really time to reassess how both education providers and students perceive and participate higher education.

Crowd Sourced Accreditation to shake up the staid world of traditional education says ALISON CEO

Crowd Sourced Accreditation to shake up the staid world of traditional education says ALISON CEO | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

IRISHMAN Mike Feerick likes to stir things up, writes Andrew Trounson in The Australian. He was running the world’s first massive open online courses before the MOOC acronym was born.

And, unlike most MOOCs, his free online education site ALISON is making money.

But an even bigger disruptive force is on the way.

Feerick calls it crowd-sourced accreditation and says it will pose a threat to vested interests among established educational institutions, where accreditation has long been seen as the ace in the hand.
