STEM vs STEAM: A Look At Half-Brain Teaching - Edudemic

STEM vs STEAM: A Look At Half-Brain Teaching - Edudemic | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
"Science, Technology, Engineering, Math. Teach coding, get girls interested in all of these subjects. However you slice it, there’s a lot of focus on the logical and analytical brain functions these days. Many schools are cutting the ‘extras’ like art and music. While I firmly believe that students need to be well rounded and really need subjects like those to be considered more than ‘extra’, and while there are many people fighting to keep these programs in schools, you can’t deny that the international economy and jobs outlook is demanding more focus on STEM. But does that mean we should drop all focus on the other stuff? The handy infographic below takes a look at why focusing on the skills of half our brain is not enough. It explores the functions of all parts of the brain (however simplified) and gives some insight into how the creative skills can help you a lot."

Special Issue of eLearning Papers just published on latest MOOC research | Pierre Antoine Ullmo | P.A.U. Education | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become a widely recognized as a valuable form of informal learning. The task now at hand is to develop a rich body of research and documented practice so that educational institutions and learners can better benefit from this new form of education. This issue of the eLearning Papers contributes to that body of knowledge with four in-depth research papers and six reports from the field

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, April 3, 8:36 AM

February this year, I reported in a scoop http://sco.lt/9LK4Sv ; about my attendance of the European MOOC summit that was held at the EPFL, Lausanne Switzerland.

 

The conference featured many lively discussions on policy and business models. but also on experiences with and research on MOOCs. A number of the research papers now have been published in this special issue of eLearning papers (issue 37). I will not comment on the individual papers and direct you towards the remarks I made in a blog post <http://pbsloep.blogspot.nl/2014/02/european-moocs-stakeholder-summit-2014.html>, in which I briefly discussed some. Please note that these remarks pertain to the unpolished versions  of the papers that featured in the conference proceedings. May I add that the editor is to be commended on producing this collection in such a speedy fashion?

Laboratories of Oligarchy? | Grassroots Economic Organizing | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
"Editor's note: Embedded below is a paper that Aaron Shaw and Benjamin Mako Hill recently uploaded to arXiv.org. It addresses an issue we here at GEO are greatly concerned with: how to increase the size of the cooperative movement and the solidarity economy without losing our cooperative values. Carl Ratner's recent article, The Corrupting Role of Corporate Co-ops, details some of the unwholsome effects that result when cooperative enterprises embrace capitalist values. Here, the authors point to evidence that large, complex organizations tend to generate "oligarchy" naturally, even when the systems are premised upon cooperation and collective decision making. "
