Minnesota clarifies: Free online ed is OK after all

Minnesota clarifies: Free online ed is OK after all | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"Minnesotans, rest assured: Your state government believes you are entitled to free online higher education. This had been a point of controversy until, well, a few minutes ago. In an earlier post this afternoon, I noted that the free online education provider Coursera had added a proviso to its terms of service that Minnesotans should not take any of its free university courses, or at least that they should do the majority of the work in said courses in another state. Why was this state suddenly taking a stand against the online education tide?"

Isaac Asimov on Science and Creativity in Education | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it


Video of Bill Moyer's interview with Isaac Asimov. "Asimov shares invaluable insights on science, computing, religion, population growth and the universe, and echoes some of own beliefs in the power of curiosity-driven self-directed learning and the need to implement creativity in education from the onset...For more of Asimov’s cunning insight on the role of science and creativity in education, we highly recommend The Roving Mind."

Study: Students Want Teachers To Use Technology ASAP | Edudemic | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"One of my favorite comments ever was from a teacher who was talking about her journey bringing technology into her classroom and developing activities around the tools she had found.

 

"She was enjoying herself, the students loved the activities and were learning the material – so what could be going wrong?

 

"She was basically berated by another teacher because their shared students were complaining that they liked the technology-based classroom learning better, and that the other teacher’s stuff was boring."

A Strategic Story about Strategic Storytelling

A Strategic Story about Strategic Storytelling | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Over the years, I have used strategic storytelling workshops to help drive key messages, build teams, and enhance communication skills.  Today, I share the story of how my interest in that began, and why I frequently use it in my leadership ...

 

LOL -- stories do the work again!!

 

What happens in an organization when a project you've been devoted to comes to a screaching halt? You turn to storytelling.

 

Oh, this author Karen Hurt is not talking about the "Ain't it awful" stories you could tell. She instead shares how she kept the project alive using the power of storytelling.

 

This is a great read and an enjoyable story. And when you get blocked -- start storytelling in healthy and constructive ways.

 

These are fab lessons here for anyone working in organizations, or anyone who gets roadblocked and needs a way around. Stories, story tools and story processes just might be what you need!

The arts to get more emphasis under Emanuel school plan - Chicago Sun-Times

The arts to get more emphasis under Emanuel school plan - Chicago Sun-Times | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Chicago Public Schools would elevate the arts to the level of a “core subject” — with 120 minutes of dedicated weekly instruction for elementary students and “at least one certified, full-time employee” at every school, under a mayoral plan unveiled Monday.

 

For the first time, the number of art forms offered by CPS would be expanded to include visual art, music, dance and drama at all grade levels. High school graduation requirements would be modified to include all four. (more)

 

Yo-Yo Ma, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's creative consultant, was beaming throughout the news conference. “You can't have a future that you can't imagine."
