Official AndreasCY's insight:

“Learning is most effective when it’s personalised; it means something to the learner. That happens when people feel they are participants and investors in their own learning, shaping what and how they learn, and able to articulate its value to them.” — Leadbeater, Charles

 

Famous Self-Taughts (Autodidacts): Leonardo Da Vinci, William Blake, Herb Rits (in addition to Virginia Woolf, Mark Twain, John D. Rockefeller, and many others)

Definitely well worth a read

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 25, 2013 11:16 AM

It is interesting how few classroom teachers and administrators are aware of what self-directed learning is. SDL is an imperative for our children.

Avery's curator insight, March 25, 2013 8:56 PM

My Thoughts:

You can't teach someone how to learn. You can give them helpful tips and advice, but a single structure for education is not going to work for everyone. It's so much harder for people to learn their true potential, to reach their goals, when they're only shown a single path to them. You show them the path through the forest, but what if there's a rock face nearby that also leads up to where they want to go, and what if they happen to be a fantastic rock climber? It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.

Even though Yahoo is so big, it’s totally worthless

Even though Yahoo is so big, it’s totally worthless | Daily Magazine | Scoop.it
Yahoo is huge. It is the fourth-biggest internet domain in the US. It is the fourth-biggest seller of online ads in the country. It is the most popular destination for fantasy sports, controls one the most-trafficked homepages in news, and owns the eighth-most popular email client. In the last three months, it collected more than $1 billion in revenue. It's very rich....
Official AndreasCY's insight:

There isn't much to yahoo about.

Haha, watch Portugal launch a drone and immediately fail by crashing it

Well, hmph. That's not how drones work guys. Supposedly, this video shows Portugal attempting to launch a naval drone by giving it a running start. As the drone is thrown in the air to fly, it immediately nosedives and crashes into the ocean. What a wonderful failure.
Official AndreasCY's insight:

You gotta see this epic fail. The drone nosedives IMMEDIATELY.

Clearer photo of mysterious unidentified flying object taken in Kansas

Clearer photo of mysterious unidentified flying object taken in Kansas | Daily Magazine | Scoop.it
A clearer photo of the mysterious unidentified flying object in Texas has surfaced. The image—enhanced above—clearly shows a boomerang-shaped blended wing object with two exhaust nozzles that seems clearly different from a B-2 bomber. It was "completely silent" and did "severe 180 degree turns in the sky in the shape of an S."
Official AndreasCY's insight:

It was "completely silent" and did "severe 180 degree turns in the sky in the shape of an S." It definitely doesn't seem to be a B-2 bomber.
