My interview with Sugata Mitra after his plenary in Harrogate.

Sylvia Guinan's curator insight, April 7, 2:21 AM

Mind-blowing concepts - Sugata says that future testing parameters will operate outside the head - through harnessing what Nik called 'extended intelligence' - problem-solving beyond intellectualism - - - think adventurous McGyver-esque students on a mission called REAL LIFE;)

' Resources of the future are/will be intangible' and therefore cannot be 'used' as though they were a WC'........

Infographic: “How To Teach English” (With A Bonus!) | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

Here’s a interesting infographic from Kaplan on “How To Teach English.” The bonus is that, along with the infographic, they published this comment from my co-author and colleague, Katie Hull Sypnieski:

Katie Hull Sypnieski, co-author of The ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide: Ready-to-Use Strategies, Tools, and Activities for Teaching English Language Learners of All Levels, said: In our ESL classes my teaching partner, Larry Ferlazzo, and I use international celebrities to increase engagement with our students. We also use celebrities in our lessons on developing successful life skills. In these lessons, we focus on the non-cognitive traits of celebrities such as self-control, taking personal responsibility, and having grit.

Mr. Peachey offers a few ideas to use techy stuff in our school groups 

Mick D Kirkov's curator insight, April 5, 3:30 AM

You know, the most expensive things for a state are still

1) the education

2) the health care

 

If somehow new media can help, it goes here upon trillions of $$$ that could be saved. Like e.g. in using LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com/edu/?trk=nav_responsive_sub_nav_edu instead of or parallel with another education. 


Montse Delgado, Manager at Open Education Challenge asked: What is the role of virtual reality applications in the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) era? - Can virtual and augmented reality applications deliver the missing ingredients for profound, effective learning in distance education? What is the role of virtual reality applications in the MOOC era? CALL FOR PAPERS! http://www.openeducationeuropa.eu/en/elearning_papers/call_for_papers     (open to Apr 27 2014). Spread the word!

 

Those saved could be put f.ex. in measures by people against Earth Warming that is, for the time being still ignored. But its revenge lets us notice it, that's in cash. No matter if the losses are in Venezia, N.Y. or in New Orleans, on north or south pole.

As always, I feel like these are just good teaching strategies: we are all visual learners to a large extent. That's why the visual cortex is so important in the brain, and relates to reading as well as seeing. But if you are a fan of Gardner, this is a good article for you.
