One can recalls times when ideas mattered hugely in public debate. But today, the big questions of meaning and value become matters of populist controversy fuelled by commercially driven media.

McLuhan (1911-1980): medium is message - Gutenburg to Zuckerberg | viviana | Scoop.it

In essence, McLuhan opened our minds to the role of technology and media by asking the right questions. He wanted to know how technology and media affect our minds, habits, society and culture. Late in his life he gave us, what in my opinion, is his most useful piece of work – the tetrad. His "tetrad" of four media laws tried to clarify the nature & impact of a technology or medium

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer | viviana | Scoop.it

In a traditional classroom, the teacher is the center of attention, the owner of knowledge and information. Teachers often ask questions of their students to gauge comprehension, but it’s a passive model that relies on students to absorb information they need to reproduce on tests. What would happen if the roles were flipped and students asked the questions?

Why Are Finnish Kids So Smart?

Why Are Finnish Kids So Smart? | viviana | Scoop.it
For years, Finland has scored at the top of every category and has increasingly been held up as a model for educational reform. But, why? Producer Eric Bombicino explores Finland's unique education system.

 

"The Finnish system's success is built on the idea that: "less can be more." This may appear counter-intuitive to many within other educational systems in which standards and effectiveness are measured in standardised data and evidence trails. The absence of corrosive competition and an egalitarian ethos inherent in the Finnish culture has surely played a role in shaping this very impressive system."

Brain Research: Adolescents Learn More in Cooperative Groups | MiddleWeb

Brain Research: Adolescents Learn More in Cooperative Groups | MiddleWeb | viviana | Scoop.it
Judy Willis, a neurologist & middle grades teacher, says adolescent brains learn more through interactive, interdependent group work.

Did you know that "peer group influence plays an important developmental role in the psychosocial process of separation from parents"? What does this mean to teachers of middle school students? That "interactive, interdependent group work" helps middle school students "build happy, learning brains."

This post will help you learn more about brain science, successful group work, how to plan for success, provides some researched-based guidelines and more.

Devon Clarke's curator insight, October 22, 4:44 PM

When it comes to adolescents brain development in our western society today we can rely on school systems to play a large role in this. In this article is talks about how cooperative work groups in middle schools are the best ways for children to learn (Willis, 2012). I found this article to relate very closely to an academic journal I read comparing social development in pre schoolers in a values education program (Dereli-Iman, E, 2014, p.263). In the experiment of the academic journal researches found that children put into the values education program had better social development and less behavioural issues  (Dereli-Iman, E, 2014, p.263).  Even though this article of cooperative groups deals with middle schools students, it proves to say that cooperative learning groups gets all children involved, and forms for the greatest  levels of conceptual learning  (Dereli-Iman, E, 2014, p.263). In the text book Exploring Psychology in Modules, they state that day care is an area that has a huge impact on a child's development (Myers & Myers, 2008, p. 148). As Whetten stated, good quality child care is a warm and stimulations place for children, and poor child care is boring for this children making them unresponsive (Myers & Myers, 2008, p. 149). From these three articles you can see that schooling for children plays a huge role in brain development, and it is important to make sure they are in a good environment. Thought the author of this article, Judy Willis did not use a lot of scientific reasoning and proof in her article I found her findings and background to be very impressive. It would have made the article a little bit better if she would have added in some statistics to back up her reasoning about cooperative groups (Willis, 2012). A possible diverse group that would be effected through cooperative learning are kids from other countries who do not speak the foreign language. If a child was put into a cooperative group and was not able to converse with the other children it could possibly lead to negative outcomes for that student.

ESCROQUERIE SCIENTIFIQUE DU SIECLE ! Einstein a plagié la théorie de la relativité de Henri Poincaré

#science #physique #plagiat #histoire #escroquerie

 

Henri Poincaré a publié la théorie de la relativité correctement et en détail bien avant qu'Einstein ne la plagie. Au même moment, Einstein travaillait dans un petit bureau de brevets. Tout le monde se demandait comment Einstein avait pu faire avec si peu de moyens pour développer sa propre théorie (1905 - the theory of special relativity*). Poincaré est mort en 1912. C'est en 1920, qu'Einstein a été lancé comme le "clown des mass media".

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn? | viviana | Scoop.it

"James Joyce affirms that geniuses not only accept mistakes as part of the learning process, but willingly seek them out as doors to self-discovery. In education, our perception of mistakes is important. It challenges conceptions of what defines success and failure."

Solitude et célibat chez Søren Kierkegaard (1) | Implications philosophiques

Solitude et célibat chez Søren Kierkegaard (1) | Implications philosophiques | viviana | Scoop.it

Les thèmes de la solitude, et plus spécifiquement du célibat, sont tout aussi présents dans la vie que dans l’œuvre de Søren Kierkegaard. Bien que ceux-ci soient rarement abordés de manière directe, ils constituent un fil directeur nous permettant de cheminer dans les méandres de la philosophie kierkegaardienne. De nombreux commentateurs s’accordent à dire que la rupture des fiançailles entre Søren et Régine en 1841, à l’initiative de Kierkegaard, se révéla être un élément particulièrement significatif, marquant de son empreinte toute son œuvre. La pertinence de cette remarque se lit notamment au travers des romans philosophiques de Kierkegaard qui reprennent souvent la thématique de l’amour impossible.

Re-opening Windows (Critical Periods)-Dana Foundation

Re-opening Windows (Critical Periods)-Dana Foundation | viviana | Scoop.it

"The brain acquires certain skills—from visual perception to language—during critical windows, specific times in early life when the brain is actively shaped by environmental input. Scientists like Takao K. Hensch are now discovering pathways in animal models through which these windows might be re-opened in adults, thus re-awakening a brain’s youth-like plasticity. Such research has implications for brain injury repair, sensory recovery, and neurodevelopmental disorder treatment. In addition, what we know today about these critical windows of development already has enormous implications for social and educational policy."

There are many amazing examples of artists who turn to cartography and geography for inspiration. Whether through the lens of a camera, paint, ...

 

This series of cartographically-inspired art work change how we look at maps.  Some of these artists also make us think of places that are on the Earth as explicitly "mappable" features.  I think the Google Maps push-pin in the city center is my favorite.  Which do you prefer?
