Coursera, a California-based venture that has enrolled five million students in its free online courses, announced on Thursday a partnership with the United States government to create “learning hubs” around the world where students can go to get Internet access to free courses supplemented by weekly in-person class discussions with local teachers or facilitators.

Rick Hanson- Compassionate Brain- FREE video series

Published on Apr 10, 2013

Dr. Rick Hanson presents a FREE 7-part video series -- The Compassionate Brain - that explores effective ways to change your brain and heart and life.

Each week, October 8 - November 19, Dr. Hanson will be joined by a world-class scholar/teacher, including Richie Davidson, Dan Siegel, Tara Brach, Dachar Keltner, Kelly McGonigal, Kristin Neff, and Jean Houston. They'll discuss different ways to use the power of neuroplasticity—how the mind can change the brain to transform the mind—to open the heart, build courage, find compassion, forgive oneself and others, and heal the world.

Resilience: The Other 21st Century Skills

Resilience:  The Other 21st Century Skills | The Future of Higher Education- Human Beings CAN create the future if we pay attention | Scoop.it

"Due to the interest of my post The Other 21st Skills, I decided to individually discuss each of the skills or dispositions I proposed that are in addition to the seven survival skills as identified by Tony Wagner.

This post focuses on resiliency. The first post focused on Grit:  The Other 21st Century Skills. Some would categorize Grit and Resiliency as the same skill, but it is my belief they are involve two different, but interconnected, skill sets. While grit focuses on persistence, resilience is about bouncing back in the face of challenges and/or failure."

A Strategy For Promoting Resilience In Children

A Strategy For Promoting Resilience In Children | The Future of Higher Education- Human Beings CAN create the future if we pay attention | Scoop.it

"Do you foster an anxious mindset or a resilient mindset in your children or students? The USA is currently the number 1 most anxious country in the world with 27% of the population living with anxiety and depression. In Australia 20% of the population experience a mental illness in any year. In the UK 1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year and about 10% of children have a mental health problem at any one time."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 10, 2013 4:16 PM

This post discusses an app for the iPad or iPhone that helps students understand their feelings and how their mind works. There are three parts to this strategy.

* Catch - Students learn to identify thoughts that impact how they feel

* Challenge - Students learn to challenge their thoughts, asking if they are based on assumptions, facts, perhaps overly negative

* Change - Students choose to change the way they think

There is a table within the post that provides Do's and Don'ts for each of the three C's listed above.

Consider posting the image as well as the table within the post "to help teach children to identify the exact nature of their thoughts, unpack and challenge those thoughts and stories and change how they feel."

Chloe Parsons's curator insight, November 3, 2013 2:37 AM

This is a really interesting post, in the way that it not only informs you about anxiety, but also shows ways to cope.

The 'Catch, challenge, change' stratergy has been created to help children and young adults relistically-

 think about their thoughts-

"What am I worrying about?"

Challenge your thoughts-

"Is this definately going to happen?"

"What will happen if I do do it?"

And change thoughts-

"What can I do to make myself feel less anxoius? Talk to someone?"

I believe that once you know about certain disorders, they become less scary. Helping children and young adults learn and understand anxiety, even if they dont experience anxiety themselves, is an important step to teaching kids to understand themselves and people around them.

 

Jennifer Colin's curator insight, October 24, 2015 6:20 PM

This is a great resource for helping students build resilience, especially those who have previously experienced trauma.  Taking the time to show them how they can think about and handle what happens to them in a more positive way can be life changing in children.  This could be integrated into any subject matter; it doesn't need to be limited to the school counselor; in fact, doing so would be a disservice.  As I future school leader it is my goal to ensure that students are receiving as well-rounded of an education as possible--and not just academically-speaking.  We should be addressing the whole person, and that includes helping them be socially, emotionally, and mentally successful as well.

100 Diagrams That Changed the World

100 Diagrams That Changed the World | The Future of Higher Education- Human Beings CAN create the future if we pay attention | Scoop.it

A visual history of human sensemaking, from cave paintings to the world wide web.


Since the dawn of recorded history, we’ve been using visual depictions to map the earth, order the heavens, make sense of time, dissect the human body, organize the natural world, perform music, and even decorate abstract concepts like consciousness and love.

100 Diagrams That Changed the World by investigative journalist and documentarian Scott Christianson chronicles the history of our evolving understanding of the world through humanity’s most groundbreaking sketches, illustrations, and drawings, ranging from cave paintings to The Rosetta Stone to Moses Harris’s color wheel to Tim Berners-Lee’s flowchart for a “mesh” information management system, the original blueprint for the world wide web.

But most noteworthy of all is the way in which these diagrams bespeak an essential part of culture — the awareness that everything builds on what came before, that creativity is combinational, and that the most radical innovations harness the cross-pollination of disciplines.

Students often struggle with understanding what plagiarism is. This infographic provides a great tool to use with your students to help them identify how easy it is to plagiarize. We then need to teach them what they need to do!

Are you ready to move away from textbooks and use Open Education Resources (OER)? This post provides links to 24 sites that provide free resources.

Perhaps you are wondering why schools are choosing to use free curriculum. Michael Gorman provides a list of ten reasons in this post that include:

* Provides  opportunity to make learning more authentic by giving you the ability to localize learning

* Can provide differentiations and allow educator to adapt to their students’ needs

An explanation is provided for each link he provides so you get a sense of what is available, and materials are available for students from elementary school through college. Below are a few of the sites listed.

* SAS Curriculum Pathways - a resource that has been around for a number of years and continues to innovate. The website states “The products make learning more profound and efficient, not simply more entertaining.” 

* Concord Consortium - a website that provides excellent STEM resources with hundreds on interactive, research based activities.

* Vision Learning - Peer reviewed materials for learning science available in English and Spanish that emphasize science as a process (inline with the new Next Generation Science Standards)

* CK12.org - CK12 is now focused on STEM and provides a wide variety of free courses from Arithmatic to Probability to Calculus in the area of math (a total of nine math courses); Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Technology, Astronomy and Engineering; a few xourses are available for English and History and there is a new course in Economics. CK12 also provides support through a variety of resources including: studyHELP, FlexMath, Braingenie and I Need a Pencil (SAT prep). One of the older sites they continue to revise courses and materials to meet the needs of todays students.

Check out the complete list by clicking through to the post, and consider not only using these materials but sharing materials you have created in some of the communities provided.

Paula King, Ph.D.'s insight:

The MOOC dialogue continues.  In Britain, a new platform was founded.  Fine-grained distinctions are being made among MOOC types, Coursera launched a revenue stream aimed at employers who pay for information about the top performers in courses and the debate in academe rages on. An interesting time in higher education.
