How's Your Bullshit Detector? | The Smirking Chimp

How's Your Bullshit Detector? | The Smirking Chimp | Crap Detection in the Classroom | Scoop.it

With a title like this, I think I ought to dispense with the rhetorical amenities and come straight to the point. For those of you who do not know, it may be worth saying that the phrase, "crap-detecting," originated with Ernest Hemingway who when asked if there were one quality needed, above all others, to be a good writer, replied, "Yes, a built-in, shock-proof, crap detector."

As I see it, the best things schools can do for kids is to help them learn how to distinguish useful talk from bullshit.

Diving Deeply: Networks or Communities? | Powerful Learning Practice | Crap Detection in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Next, something Sheryl recently posted in the PLP Community Hub caught my eye. It was a document that Howard Rheingold had shared, inviting folks to work on collaboratively transforming a course about social media for high school students. I had been cocooning a bit, thinking through my plans, and while following some of Howard’s links I discovered — a visual syllabus!
