Geographic Thinking Concepts: Spatial Significance; Patterns and Trends
Matt Manish's curator insight, February 16, 7:18 PM
This is an interesting quiz to test your world geography skills. It gives you the shape of a country in red and you have to place the shape on the correct country. If you can't find the correct country, just double tap the shape and it will show you which country it belongs to. This was definitely a challenge for me since I only got two of the countries correct. I found particular difficulty with locating the smaller countries with less features that stand out. Although I only got two answers right, I did enjoy this map quiz because it helped me to realize that I should brush up on my world geography skills more to help me stay informed with what's going on in the world.

The Future of Learning - PDF Version : The Paradigm Shift - MarkTreadwell.com

The Future of Learning - PDF Version : The Paradigm Shift - MarkTreadwell.com | Pedagogicke.info | Scoop.it

"This 200pp resource provides a window into the future of learning that is now urgently required in all schools - NOW! We need to prepare our young people for this century; a century where our learners are increasingly using YouTube to learn about what they need to learn, Just in Time; an era where our personal, social and work places are all experiencing enormous rates of change. How do we prepare learners a world that is increasingly complex; and one that is now demanding high levels of personal competency. 

"This journey begins with an emerging model for how our brain learns. Understanding this background provides us with the capacity to defining what the Learning process looks like (formally referred to as the inquiry process).  

"The human brain is extraordinary, but even more extraordinary is how little we have understood its capacity to learn. As humans, we alone have all four +(1) learning systems, allowing us to take our overwhelmingly rich sensory data to create knowledge and leverage that to build ideas and concepts and then apply those innovatively and ingeniously.

"The Learning Process harnesses this potential, allowing intelligence to be far more equitable than we ever imagined – "all learners are intelligent, and it is time everyone has the opportunity to fulfil the inherent potential that lays within."

"The physical copy of 'The Future of Learning' is accompanied with access to the electronic PDF version. The electronic version is updated every four months to ensure we are keeping you up to date with the very latest information on learning and how we can make that both relevant and equitable."

Kazakhstan to switch from Cyrillic to Latin alphabet

Kazakhstan to switch from Cyrillic to Latin alphabet | Pedagogicke.info | Scoop.it

"Kazakh was written in Arabic script until 1920 when it was substituted by the Latin alphabet. In 1940, it was replaced by a Cyrillic one. 'Given that over 100 countries in the world use the Latin script, it is crucial for Kazakhstan's integration into the global educational and economic environment,' said Gulnar Karbozova.

The former Soviet Republic declared independence in 1991. Its state language is Kazakh, a member of the Turkic family.

Yet, Russian is widely spoken across Kazakhstan and is its second official language."

This comes as a surprise to me. I would think that the cyrillic alphabet was an integral part of their cultural identity. This is further evidence of groups sacrificing their own culture for the sake of globalizing and relating with other countries.
Kelsey McIntosh's curator insight, March 31, 3:15 PM
This article explains how the country of Kazakhstan will be switching their alphabet, as the title suggests. Originally using the Kazakh alphabet, the president has declared that they will be using the Latin Script. They argue that this will help with Kazakhstan’s “integration into the global educational and economic environment”
brielle blais's curator insight, April 1, 2:18 PM
This showcases how important a countries language is. It allows the country, in this case Kazakhstan, to have their own sort of identity, which can be seen in having extra letters in their alphabet that are certain Kazakh sounds. However, is it also important to be on the same grounds as other countries, many using the latin alphabet, because it makes the economic environment and education situations easier which other countries.

Establishing A Culture Of ‘Can’ In Your Classroom - TeachThought

Establishing A Culture Of ‘Can’ In Your Classroom - TeachThought | Pedagogicke.info | Scoop.it
If a learner is to develop a sense of can, he or she must learn it. While some students have more natural confidence or initiative than others, can is slightly different than confidence. Can is a mix of knowledge and self-efficacy that has been nurtured through experience — by consistently meeting both internally and externally created goals judged by standards that are also both internally and externally drawn.

So how does this happen? Where does it come from?

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why | Pedagogicke.info | Scoop.it
Unstructured learning is an authentic real-world way of learning. That’s because the real world itself doesn’t have neat compartments or set disciplines for success.

“El aprendizaje no estructurado ocurre cuando dejamos que los estudiantes jueguen sin una guía para que puedan sacar conclusiones por sí mismos. Sin embargo, todavía este tipo de aprendizaje requiere del apoyo del maestro, particularmente en las primeras etapas del proceso. Esto sucede en forma de diseño de escenarios, desarrollo de plantillas, formulación de preguntas orientadoras, etc. Al final, sin embargo, todos estos métodos están diseñados para apoyar y guiar a los estudiantes mientras caminan felices a través de lo desconocido”.

It demands adaptability, patience, and a willingness to learn and to use what is learned in the moment. Most of all, it requires us to take full responsibility for what we learn.

 

It’s time to play and to let go of rigid teaching in favour of unstructured learning. For this to happen, teachers have to foster trust in their students. They have to be willing to take a step back and put a little slack on the reins of traditional pedagogy. In short, we need to let things get a little messy. Ease into it—it’s a bold step and it will transform everything.

Alexander Daron's curator insight, October 15, 2017 11:06 AM

I chose this resource because I agree 100% with the title. When I have used different technology and different programs with my students, they love it. Students in todays society get bored sitting in class with teachers talking to them. They want to be up and moving around working with technology to help them learn. I hope that this article will prove to our teachers that they must use technology for the benefit of their students. I have been in special education classrooms where autistic students were benefiting so much from programs on the iPad. Implementing these practices is so important to our students. 

Alexander Daron's curator insight, October 15, 2017 11:42 AM

I chose this resource because students can be so creative when using technology in their education. They aren't restricted, and can create assignments or projects that make sense to them. They aren't restricted, and don't have to do exactly what the teacher tells them. I hope that this article will come true for many schools around America. Too often, teachers are afraid to let students be creative with the use of technology, because it is outside of their comfort zone to let the students venture off and create their own learning opportunities.
