Attention is your scarcest commodity. How you portion it is probably the most important thing. [With] the tools and technology we want to build, we want to give you back that empowerment, but for me, that’s been core to how I achieve some harmony between work and life.

Teaching for Global Competence in a Rapidly Changing World

Teaching for Global Competence in a Rapidly Changing World | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

"The OECD and the Center for Global Education at Asia Society have worked with academics, educators, and stakeholders in the global education field over several years to define global competence for primary and secondary education. The Center also has extensive experience supporting educators to integrate global competence into their teaching.

"A new publication from both organizations, entitled Teaching for Global Competence in a Rapidly Changing World, sets forward a new framework for global competence developed by OECD, which aligns closely with the definition developed by the Center for Global Education, and provides practical guidance and examples of how educators can embed global competence into their existing curriculum, instruction, and assessment.

"This publication was made possible through the generous support of Citi Foundation.

"Key Findings From the Publication
Both the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Center for Global Education at Asia Society have identified four key components of global competence. Globally competent youth:

-investigate the world beyond their immediate environment by examining issues of local, global, and cultural significance;
-recognize, understand, and appreciate the perspectives and world views of others;
-communicate ideas with diverse audiences by engaging in open, appropriate, and effective interactions across cultures; and
-take action for collective well-being and sustainable development both locally and globally."

Challenge Based Learning :: Digital Promise

Challenge Based Learning :: Digital Promise | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

"Challenge Based Learning (CBL) provides an efficient and effective framework for learning while solving real-world Challenges. The framework is collaborative and hands-on, asking all participants (students, teachers, families, and community members) to identify big ideas, ask good questions, identify and solve challenges, gain deep subject area knowledge, develop 21st century skills, and share their experience with the world.

 

"CBL emerged from the “Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow—Today” (ACOT2) project initiated in 2008 to identify the essential design principles of the 21st century learning environment. Starting with the ACOT2 design principles, Apple, Inc. worked with exemplary educators to develop and test Challenge Based Learning.

CBL is an adaptable framework that is constantly adapting and evolving. With each implementation new ideas surface, the framework is reviewed and the model evolves.

 

"Challenge Based Learning provides:

A flexible and customizable framework.A scalable model with multiple points of entry.A process that places all learners in charge and responsible for the learning.An authentic environment for meeting academic standards and deep learning.A focus on global ideas with local challenges and solutions.An authentic connection between academic disciplines and real world experience.A framework to develop a wide range of 21st century skills.Purposeful use of technology.The opportunity for learners to make a difference now.A way to document and assess both the learning process and product.An environment for deep reflection on teaching and learning.

 

"To learn more about Challenge Based Learning visit the Toolkit where you will find Stories, Resources, Research, Challenges and the new CBL User Guide."

Robustness and Contingent History: From Prisoner's Dilemma to Gaia Theory

In both social systems and ecosystems there is a need to resolve potential conflicts between the interests of individuals and the collective interest of the community. The collective interests need to survive the turbulent dynamics of social and ecological interactions. To see how different systems with different sets of interactions have different degrees of robustness, we need to look at their different contingent histories. We analyze abstract artificial life models of such systems, and note that some prominent examples rely on explicitly ahistorical frameworks; we point out where analyses that ignore a contingent historical context can be fatally flawed. The mathematical foundations of Gaia theory are presented in a form whose very basic and general assumptions point to wide applicability across complex dynamical systems. This highlights surprising connections between robustness and accumulated contingent happenstance, regardless of whether Darwinian evolution is or is not implicated. Real-life studies highlight the role of history, and artificial life studies should do likewise.
