Why You Should Pay Children To Be Emotionally Intelligent » Six Seconds

Why You Should Pay Children To Be Emotionally Intelligent » Six Seconds | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

What a child wants most of all is attention. That is his currency. So when we want her to be thoughtful of others, empathic and kind, we need to give her lots of attention when we see it happening.

And one way to do that successfully, over time, in our busy world is through tokens of our appreciation. Yes, that’s right, we have to pay them.

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

Posted by Jeff Hurt. "Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources. Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt? That's where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here's an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin)

Public Writing and Writing to Learn

Public Writing and Writing to Learn | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

I would argue that public writing is one of the most important experiences for our students and critical if we believe in writing to learn. From the network public to citizenship, public writing makes our thinking visible and allows us to establish our voice in a broader context of learning for life.

 

But the idea of public writing disturbs many in education.

The School-Less Revolution: Free Online Courses Being Considered For College Credit | TechCrunch

The School-Less Revolution: Free Online Courses Being Considered For College Credit | TechCrunch | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

Students could soon receive college credit for taking free online courses. Massive Online Open Course platform Coursera is working with accreditation standards institution American Council on Education to evaluate whether its online classes are sufficient for the kinds of college credit awarded in Advanced Placement courses.

 

Should free online courses be given accreditation, it could dramatically reduce the cost of the first two years of college and release a significant portion of education from the confines of schools. ”Students will have an unprecedented opportunity to obtain recognized credentials for their work,” said Professor William G. Bowen, former President of Princeton University. “This could significantly reduce the costs of higher education for millions of students.”

 

Coursera is part of a broader educational movement to provide universal access to world-class education by putting lectures and materials from top universities online for free. MIT OpenCourseWare, the pioneer of the system, has seen over 125 million lifetime views. Coursera augments its lectures with interactive forums and peer graders, which it argues are close to the quality of a college teaching assistant.

 

Despite their success, accredited schools hold a monopoly on the American education system. No matter how competent a student or quality a class, only classes that can be counted for credit are taken seriously. As a result, pretty much everyone has to be funnelled through the traditional classroom.

 

But if free online courses could be given the recognition of something like Advanced Placement, it would disrupt the very foundation of the education system.

Teaching kids goes beyond textbooks and classroom lessons. It has to include teaching them to open their minds and how to think for themselves.

This is how we will encourage them to reach their full potential.

One of the most important things we can teach kids is to believe in themselves. As adults we have an obligation to younger generations to help them gain confidence. We should also help them explore their ability to be creative.

"Over the past few months I’ve been experimenting with guided math strategies in my classroom. One station in my classroom has been dubbed as the technology table. This table has been primarily used to differentiate instruction to improve students’ understanding of mathematical concepts. I’ve been using the tech table for the past few months with great success. There are five iPad apps that are used at this table. Unlike many math apps that offer only demo versions, I’ve found the below apps to be useful in the classroom."
