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 2:16 PM

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 11:56 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.

Parade - Create your own scrolling album for free!

Parade - Create your own scrolling album for free! | Daily Magazine | Scoop.it
Visit www.myparade.com to create your own free scrolling album to share with your friends.
Official AndreasCY's insight:

So many startups claim to "change how you share photos online." Yet they all deliver the same old mosaic of thumbnails and mess of push notifications.

Parade, however, really comes through. Take our word for it (we've seen 'em all): This one's different.

This simple tool creates a free microsite where your photos are stitched together in a continuous, parallax-scrolling stream (foreground text scrolls slower than images in the background). The result looks every bit as impressive as you'd imagine.

You don't need an account to use Parade: Just upload photos, add text, and the site spits out truly original presentations.


Every Parade is socially shareable and mobile optimized – so they retain their beauty across devices.
