Google's Eric Schmidt: We need #critical #thinking now more than ever | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it
Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet Inc (Google’s parent company), is optimistic about the future. “We’re entering what I call the age of abundance,” he says. “And during the age of abundance, we’re going to see a new age … the age of intelligence.

“By 2020, most human beings will have access to the internet. When you have everyone harnessed with this information, the world gets more inter-connected. It gets stronger. There’s more knowledge sharing. There’s more freedom and there’s more openness.”

I believe that if you can identify the fundamental or essentials of any occupation or discipline AND you can continue to educate yourself on those basics, only then will you have any hope of remaining relevant in this ever-changing landscape of the 21st century!

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it
In the last ten years, technology has changed the way we work and communicate with others — and it’s also changed how we interact in the classroom. In fact, some educators argue that technology can improve the classroom by eliminating the need for a physical one, and allow students to learn remotely, from wherever they do their best work. While it’s still too early to know if this is the most effective way to teach, it’s important to stay-to-update on these innovations in education and see what we can learn from them. In these TED talks, students and educators share their …

5 ways teachers can improve student learning based on current brain research

5 ways teachers can improve student learning based on current brain research | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it
The brain is an experience-dependent organ. From our very earliest days, the brain begins to map itself to our world as we experience it through our senses. The mapping is vague and fuzzy at first, like a blurred photograph or an un-tuned piano. However, the more we interact with the world, the more well-defined our brain maps become until they are fine-tuned and differentiated. But each person’s map will vary, with some sensory experiences more distinct than others depending on the unique experiences and the clarity and frequency of the sensations he or she has experienced.

Educators can positively influence students’ learning by understanding how the brain is shaped by their early experiences—and how it can be rewired and reorganized to work more quickly and efficiently.
