What If Schools Created a Culture of "Do" INSTEAD of a Culture of "Know?" - The Tempered Radical

What If Schools Created a Culture of "Do" INSTEAD of a Culture of "Know?" - The Tempered Radical | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Here at Educon yesterday, I had the chance to learn a bit more about design thinking from David Jakes. David's central point was that schools and teachers often get stuck in a "Yeah, but..." mindset when thinking about change.

Why mastering personal knowledge is critical to success

Why mastering personal knowledge is critical to success | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Three major external forces and trends are influencing the future of work:

Technology is changing Expectations … of what is possibleGlobalization is changing Value Creation … from tangible to intangible, as culture gets digitizedSocial Media are changing Relationships … to a ubiquitously connected and pervasively proximate world

 

Automation is ending the industrial era. Examples include lawyers replaced by software, bank staff replaced by websites, travel agents replaced by apps, and soon drivers will be replaced by robots. Workplaces are finding themselves at a break-point between the industrial era and the network era, with industrial era systems and structures unable to adapt to a world of mostly non-standardized, non-repeatable work processes.

Audrey's curator insight, October 18, 7:49 AM

It is  much easier to access paper material or material that you can create yourself without the complications of machine equipment, which can be inaccessible. 

 

An important part of learning and using your brain is the ability to be flexible. It will take time to make e text books flexible enough for young people to use them creatively.

How to Translate Your Ideas Into An Effective Mind Map

How to Translate Your Ideas Into An Effective Mind Map | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Ideas usually come to us in clusters, and it’s hard to separate one from
the other. When we’re brainstorming, we can come up with a whole web of
ideas from just a single concept. One idea will branch out to a new one,
and two more will branch out from that. Before you know it, you have a
complicated map of interlocking chains of thought. How do you turn creative
chaos into a neat narrative? Sometimes, you don’t have to—visualize your
web of ideas by creating a mind map with Prezi.

Teaching Metacognition: How Students Think Is Key To High Achievement

Teaching Metacognition: How Students Think Is Key To High Achievement | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

"A few years ago, I came across some interesting research by cognitive psychologist Ronald T. Kellogg. He claimed that the mark of an expert writer is not years of practice or a hefty vocabulary, but rather an awareness of one’s audience. This made sense to me, and I wondered if it were true in other disciplines as well."

Shifting Toward An Architecture of Participation

Shifting Toward An Architecture of Participation | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

"Reading, in terms of scale and diversity, is different than it used to be. Thinking, in terms of context and application, is also different.

It makes since that learning is also changing–becoming more entrepreneurial than directly didactic. That is, more learner-centered ... than teacher-controlled."
