Why Curiosity Is Essential to Motivation - InformED | digital divide information | Scoop.it
It would seem logical to begin research on motivation by examining the thing that motivates—the end goal, the desired outcome, the carrot on the end of the stick. That’s what Dr. R. Alison Adcock, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University, and her team have done in a series of studies examining... Read More

Camila Ávila's curator insight, November 17, 2:06 PM
Information about ADHD/ADD should be shared with teachers as well, because parents are not the only ones that have to deal and try to find a common ground with this. Yes, it is more common that what we know, but it does not mean that every child that presents "scenes", or behaviours like the ones mentioned, have ADHD/ADD. Sometimes, they are just spoiled or abused kids, and the abused kids present PTSD (Post-Trauma Syndrome) which is very different from ADHD/ADD. Which is why, you do not diagnose your kids yourself based on what you read/hear, that's the doctor's job.
As an ADHD/ADD kid myself, I can tell how kids with this do not understand that they are a little different nor that they are doing something wrong as emotions are so hard to control.
I had  medication and a psychologist help me mostly with Disperse Attention  which helped a lot growing up, but as my University semesters pass by, its getting back to me and it is harder to control not being disperse. So, it never goes awa. I has teachers that understood and others that didn't, , which is why it is so importants for teachers of all grades to have an understanding of how ADHD/ADD affects us and them, and how can they help in the classroom.

The third leg of the digital access, digital skills, is the one that is most often forgotten and taken-for-granted. If we have access and the tool, do we have the skills to use it? That begins with understanding technology (techne + logos) is a thoughtful conversation about, with, and through our tools. It is not limited to the digital.

Jenny's curator insight, November 13, 4:37 PM
In his explanation regardng how to construct a better place for our students in order to improve education, Dr. Scott McLeod highlights the importance of 4 fundamental factors in order to stablish a better environment for learners. These aspects are the following: 

-The shift from low-level recall and regurgitation to deeper learning, 
-The shift from teacher-directed to greater student agency, 
-The shift from isolated-disconnected classroom work to more real-world authentic work, 
-Using technology in robust ways to facilitate those first three.

According to what this author expresses, we as teachers need to change a lot of practices that are taking place in schools. There are still traditional traits that constrain the exploration of more innovative practices. For sure, there should be a change in terms of methodology and focus since learners deserve now a contextualization of what they will learn, a better students directed center in which they become in the central part of the schools. With this, it is also intended that learners become aware of their learning process so that they will be more independent and autonomous learners. 
Additionally, students will improve different aspects (emotionally and cognitively) since the tasks they will develop will be more demanding and will enable them to explore in a deep view.

Without changes in education, the future of work will leave more people behind - The Hechinger Report

Without changes in education, the future of work will leave more people behind - The Hechinger Report | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"A glimpse into America’s future labor market suggests a boom in health care jobs, soaring employment in clean energy and a continued decline in manufacturing positions.

 

"Those are among the key takeaways from 10-year employment projections released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The findings offer more evidence of widening socioeconomic inequality, the migration of jobs to the service sector and a drop in the number of middle-class jobs for workers with only a high school diploma.

 

"This unfolding economic shift is challenging educators to shape curricula that will prepare students for positions requiring an elusive combination of soft skills — the ability to solve problems, communicate effectively and work with others — along with technical capacities.


“The skill requirements in jobs have increased remarkably in their depth and breadth,” said Anthony P. Carnevale, research professor and director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. “The pace of change is outrunning the ability of educators to provide those skills and to qualify people for entry-level jobs.”

Here is the binary challenge: are we preparing students for a future world or are we preparing them in the world we currently live in?

The word "and" means something. Perhaps, we are able to do both. John Dewey proposed that education is not preparation for life; it is life itself. This means forming and informing habits and growing becomes the premise for more growth. We are not finished growing.

INDIAN-ED.ORG: SINCE TIME IMMEMORIAL: TRIBAL SOVEREIGNTY IN WASHINGTON STATE
SOCIAL STUDIES

"Since Time Immemorial is a collection of curricular resources about Washington state and U.S. history that center on the history and perspective of tribal communities. These resources were designed by the Washington State's Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Office of Native Education in collaboration with individual tribes and school districts. These resources include lesson plans for students in elementary, middle, and high school; educational videos; and links to helpful outside resources. While these resources were designed specifically for students in Washington state, some of these resources may be helpful when incorporating tribal perspectives into social studies classrooms across the United States. These lessons plans and resources are aligned with Common Core Standards and are designed to be easily incorporated into existing history and social studies curricula by providing tribal perspectives on topics and themes already addressed in U.S. history and world history classrooms.
