This is a fine post from  Karla Gutierrez on Shift's E-Learning Blog. It's far more than an inforgraphic. You'll find a design glossary hyperlinked to additional resources.  Think of this as an inforgraphic sitting on top of buried treasure.  Worth digging into! 

Paula King, Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 5, 2014 10:06 AM

A useful article.  GOOD summary.

Working as a group, in person or at a distance, is a fundamental skill. My advice: pick a tool and stick with it long enough to learn the nuances.

Group work? Collaboration? JigSaw? Cooperative? All pips from the same orange.  Strategies (i.e.... just a bit of thinking and planning up front) can change a teachers attitude about learning together.

8 Critical Skills For A Modern Education

8 Critical Skills For A Modern Education | technology and education | Scoop.it

"Pearson sent us this report recently–Exploring the Learning Curve. The big idea here is the changing skill needs for students globally. It is based on this idea of an index–a Global Index of Cognitive Skills and Education Attainment. The report explains:
'The Global Index of Cognitive Skills and Educational Attainment compares the performance of 39 countries and one region (Hong Kong) on two categories of education: Cognitive Skills and Educational Attainment. The Index provides a snapshot of the relative performance of countries based on their education outputs.'”

Short and to the point, this list provides great food for thought. DId you expect to see digital literacy as one of the top skills for a modern education?

Audrey's curator insight, July 10, 2014 2:28 PM

These would seem to correlate with Thomas Friedman's    "The world is flat" idea.  Basically we need to value and  respect all human beings as those  people at the bottom of the tree last century wont always be there:  

 

Emotional intelligence (feel things from others point of view).  Communication (learn to speak  another person's language). Problem-solving (Listen to and understand someone else's pain and joy); Team-working (the ability to liaise with others as humans who feel pain, cry, hurt just as you do).  

 

Basically the emphasis seems to be on humanity as one rather group rather than the superficial differences.  The idea is for human beings to leave the savannah.

Successful Collaboration Requires More Than Cool Tools | technology and education | Scoop.it
Collaboration is a hot topic in the modern workplace. Why? Because businesses of all shapes and sizes are realizing they can accomplish more when their employees work together than they can when workers brainstorm, plan and create in isolation.

I think this video is a good resource because first it starts talking about homework cons, but then it starts giving solutions and ideas about overcoming the fear of doing homework.  Also it isn't long and it is not boring so people that see it will learn in a fun way.  Last but not least it will give you a lot of ideas and examples you can put in your persuasive essay.

This source is useful cause it gives a reason to make homework a better opportunity to like it. And in the way it gives a why take it out and to still keep it. It also has a lot of star statements. That's what makes it a convincing video.
