The Value of Boredom

The Value of Boredom | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

Being bored is a precious thing, a state of mind we should pursue. Once boredom sets in, our minds begin to wander, looking for something exciting, something interesting to land on. And that’s where creativity arises.

Kel Bray's curator insight, May 28, 6:22 AM
I couldn't agree more with this post. I feel that there has to be more to the behaviours and excuses that are more evident now-a-days. Respect and responsibility is being pushed aside for rights and no responsibility. There is no such thing as a pecking order within the family unit any more and that includes the parents. Majority of the time it is the younger child who seems to wear the pants in the family and gets away with so much more, all while calling the shots. I think as parents become busier, the easy option is to say yes or opt to quieten the child down with some sort of gadget to play with. These failures are starting with the parents but it is the teachers at schools who are left to pick up the pieces to try enforce some kind of rules and routine. Often the schools are then not supported by the parents in these matters. There is also a lack of consequences for bad choices. Children need to be held responsible for their actions or otherwise they miss the life lesson. Children think they are equal with the parents but this is not the case. Parents have a job to do when raising children and that is to be a good role model and guide their children through life. By letting the child do what they want , when they want and how they want does not do the child any favours. 
In fact, it under prepares the child for adulthood and blending into society. Parents - harden up and be the grown up!
Lucas Bongarra's curator insight, May 31, 1:33 PM

The most important part of the day is when you connect with your children. Make the time relevant and focus on what is meaningful to them and their future. This is a great article about kids and parents today.

The Rise of Educational Technology as a Sociocultural and Ideological Phenomenon

The push for educational technology exists within a broader political, economic, ideological, and technological context. The all-too-common ignorance of this context and the subtleties of learning itself may prove problematic for edtech — and higher education's future.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, June 8, 1:49 PM
Actually, handwriting does matter, but not in the most direct way, producing. There is evidence that handwriting helps develop the creative side of the brain.

From a phenomenological perspective, writing also produces text to be re-interpreted continuously over time. Certainly, digital tools can do the same, but is it the same?

Action and consistency key in online learning
Some really interesting thoughts in here. I can see how it might be tempting to simply drop students into an online environment and let them run loose, but it's important for them to know why they are doing this; and what's the learning outcome? Consistency would certainly help them to feel supported and more in control too. I feel that authentic context which delivers a learning outcome that is far beyond a simply alternative to a worksheet/text book is essential for online learning - just because it's on a computer/device doesn't instantly make it more engaging than a paper-based task!
Robert Heyman's curator insight, May 25, 7:30 PM
This article, rescooped via classmate Heidi Ellis' curated collection, is written jounalist for 'The Guardian', Leonard Huox. The article discusses way in which delivering teaching online needs to be more than just a 'content dump', and the need to add value and avoid the risk of miscommunication in distance/online learning.

Several techniques are explained to engage students in online study, including keeping it simple (bullet points, small paragraphs, brief sentences etc., maintaining consistency in terms of style, due dates, formats and criteria.

Digital tools and modified and redefined learning tasks can be very successful in helping students stay switched on, and engage them in active learning by adding meaning to the way they learn. Through audio and visual learning, teachers can ensure information presented online is not just a 'content dump' and presents opportunities for students to learn new information in exciting ways. 

Katelyn Muller's curator insight, June 1, 6:37 AM
A very worthwhile read! This artefact provides numerous points on how to keep students engaged and provide meaning to their learning. The clear concise way this text was written made it easy to understand and establish key take home messages. Definitely an artefact that I would recommend all teachers to read, new and experienced.
