Great reading

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, November 20, 2017 5:10 PM

"The National Academy of Science suggests it might be unethical to continue to use the traditional lecture approach when we have growing robust evidence from many different studies that other methods are far more effective.

As student loan debt surpasses credit card debt to leave many graduates unhappy, educational institutions have a moral obligation to provide students with a learning experience that gives them their money’s worth. Applying the latest findings from neuroscience into their classrooms is one way to do so." (By Raya Bidshahri - Oct 24, 2017)

Lisa Marie Blaschke's curator insight, November 21, 2017 2:33 AM
Lot of lots of good insights and emerging ideas here: role of neuroeducation, importance of passion-based learning, and learner-controlled learning. Also: “teaching young minds about neuroscience and neuroplasticity alone can have a positive impact on their learning” #heutagogy

How Technology Is Transforming the Way We Teach and Learn

How Technology Is Transforming the Way We Teach and Learn | Donna whispers to you, "Psssst! Want some free stuff?" | Scoop.it
Our education system is in need of reform. Most students are not taught to be self-motivated lifelong learners, nor do they come out of the school system with the skills, mindsets, and values required to survive a world of accelerating change. Most students do not graduate to feeling inspired to contribute to human progress.

Machine-based translation is amazing, but hundreds of millions of people on our Pale Blue Dot can’t enjoy its benefits–because their language is nowhere to be found in the translator’s pull-down menu. Now, two new artificial intelligence systems–one from the Universidad del País Vasco (UPV) in Spain and another from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU)–promise to change all that, opening the door to true universal translators like the ones in Star Trek.
