La exquisita complejidad del lápiz

La exquisita complejidad del lápiz | Creative literature | Scoop.it

Angela Artero's insight:

Un excelente artículo bien documentado sobre la historia de ese pequeño y genial invento llamado lápiz.

Use different meters
I have to admit the majority of my songs are in 4/4. Changing your songs to 3/4 or 6/8 meter can completely change the feel of a song – AND can be quite effective for rocking or swaying songs.

How the 5 Rhetorical Canons (Invention, Arrangement, Style, Memory, and Delivery) Will Make You More Persuasive

How the 5 Rhetorical Canons (Invention, Arrangement, Style, Memory, and Delivery) Will Make You More Persuasive | Creative literature | Scoop.it
Aristotle famously stated that rhetoric is "an ability, in each particular case, to see the available means of persuasion." In other words, rhetoric is about finding all communicative options in a given situation and carefully choosing which of them will most likely persuade your audience. If we are rhetorically savvy, we have the ability to choose the appropriate words, phrases, images, icons, colors, tone, organizational structure, and so forth that will most likely persuade the person or people listening to us to agree with what we have to say. This is true of simple face-to-face conversations or of large-scale marketing…

No mere pamhplet either, this is a proper book!

5 tópicos  erróneos sobre el aprender -- leer el texto, PERO.... además de destruir esos mitos (pecados habituales en el docente tradicional), lo que precisamos es avanzar algo más: formar la psique y la mente del alumno no es tarea fácil. La psicopedagogía o la pedagogía tradicionales no bastan, pero ¿cómo avanzamos?t

Maria Claudia Londoño D.'s curator insight, October 14, 2013 11:54 AM

Ahí vamos avanzando,pero considero que todavía nuestra marcha en las propuestas pedagógicas es más lenta que el ritmo de los avances que el acceso a la información !!! 

Lino's curator insight, November 3, 2013 7:53 AM

  La educación tradicional tiene muchas cosas útiles y muchas obsoletas. Los sistemas educativos van a sufrir muchos cambios en los próximos años, pero los educadores no podemos esperar para generar ese cambio en nosotros mismos.
