Useful Mental Models

Useful Mental Models | Education For the 21st Century! | Scoop.it
There are various things which smart and successful people do, how they think, and how they behave (as a cause or a consequence). One essential and very crucial element though is the fact that they have understood that in order to make good decisions both in life and in business one must be able to comprehend some of the essential underlying principles of the world, society, and nature. 

They use particular sets of "life and business models,“ like a tool box, which help them to guide and focus their thinking. They apply these tools to different situations as needed. Academics have coined them "mental models,“ defined as a collection of someone's thought process about how something works in the real world. As such mental models assist in seeing a problem from different perspectives.

All of us can do the same. And it´s not about being able mastering everything, but rather studying the biggest ideas and principles (models) from different disciplines such as physics, sociology, philosophy, management, etc. One should know a group of models (called a network or latticework of models) to use some of them in one situation and others in differing situations; resulting in better decisions. The idea for building such a latticework comes from Charlie Munger, Vice Chairman of iconic Berkshire Hathaway and currently one of the best multi-disciplinary thinkers in the world.

Imagine diverse learning ecosystems where learning adapts to each child rather than each child trying to adapt to school (which tends to be programmed).  This puts the learner in charge where youngssters can develop their own innate skills inspired from home schooling.

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Education For the 21st Century! | Scoop.it
Metacognition, simply put, is the process of thinking about thinking. It is important in every aspect of school and life, since it involves self-reflection on one’s current position, future goals, potential actions and strategies, and results. At its core, it is a basic survival strategy, and has been shown to be present even in rats.

Perhaps the most important reason for developing metacognition is that it can improve the application of knowledge, skills, and character qualities in realms beyond the immediate context in which they were learned. This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.

These materials can be retained, reused, revised, remixed, and redistributed. These “5R permissions” of OER allow you to not only access the materials and resources free of charge, but also to make them even better. Sounds good, right?

Lateral Thinking - How can Lateral Thinking help you? | #Creativity #ProblemSolving

Lateral Thinking - How can Lateral Thinking help you? | #Creativity #ProblemSolving | Education For the 21st Century! | Scoop.it
With logic you start out with certain ingredients just as in playing chess you start out with given pieces. But what are those pieces? In most real life situations the pieces are not given, we just assume they are there. We assume certain perceptions, certain concepts and certain boundaries. Lateral thinking is concerned not with playing with the existing pieces but with seeking to change those very pieces. Lateral thinking is concerned with the perception part of thinking. This is where we organise the external world into the pieces we can then 'process'.

A healthy human brain does not want to always be creative, it is designed to figure out how to do things or how to think about things and then 'locks' that automatic response or behaviour into a subconscious process so that your conscious brain can focus on other matters.

Pensar de forma diferente...mirar mas allá de lo evidente... conduce a soluciones inesperadas a viejos problemas.
Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, May 23, 2017 7:38 PM
Lateral thinking is the art of looking at things sideways, and not choosing the obvious answer. When we think laterally, we look a little bit deeper into things. Lateral thinking makes new ideas posible If we are able to look at things differently, and make an unlikely connection, this will take us to a new way of problem solving, as suggested by O’Sullivan, 2008, “search as far outside the boundaries of convention as you can” (p.57). Lateral thinking leads us away from the rules and structure we normally encounter; this can be a mental block on our creativity.

Learning new skills can be awkward and uncomfortable. Think back to the first time you interviewed for a job or spoke in front of a group. It’s possible you made some mistakes, but in the long run you grew and developed.

And if you were lucky enough to have someone supporting and partnering with you—someone coaching you through the experience—chances are that support really helped.

In today’s workplace, business leaders are encouraged to coach their direct reports. To do this, leaders must develop a coaching mindset—a mindset that looks for the potential in others.  Here are four ways to get started.

Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet | Education For the 21st Century! | Scoop.it
By challenging the assumption that every child growing up today is a one-size-fits all digital native, we can make sure each of them can find their own way to relate to technology — whether using it to accomplish basic tasks or to create new technologies and worlds. Being aware of our kids’ differences now is what could help keep them from drifting apart.

A much more nuanced view, and one that I appreciate. I have long called so-called digital natives "digital naives" because the majority of kids only know enough about tech to use it to accomplish what they wish to accomplish. Tech does not really come any easier for them. Tech is simply more common to them.

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU | Education For the 21st Century! | Scoop.it
During this time of significant educational change, we are forced to ask ourselves, what is the role of the teacher?

Teachers continue to be central to learning, but the role is changing significantly. Our children still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, but they also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves. This means students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

So if students are self-directing their learning, what's the role of the teacher?

Teachers build the curriculum/lessons with the individual student based on his/her needs and interests rather than move through a fixed curriculum en masse.


Teachers provide the experiences and tools to access new knowledge in specific areas of interest as facilitators of individual pathways, rather than being a provider of the content or expert in one or every area,Teachers become experts in how people learn, not only in teaching.


Teachers support a community of learners in teams, possibly of multiple ages, rather than alone in classrooms with fixed grades of students.


Teachers have more autonomy over their daily schedule, and can be flexible to adjust their schedules to support student needs.


Teachers provide opportunities for real-world, connected, practical learning rather than isolated academics.
These are the types of changes in the teacher's role that are fundamental to developing students who are capable of independent learning and reinvention in a rapidly changing world.
