Randy Bauer's curator insight, May 3, 2013 12:05 AM

This is a great article that applies this concept of well-being with emphasis on achievement. Specifically, looking at the ability to accomplish some goal that, with effort, one is able to reach a high level of mastery. 

 

It is not just how intelligent we are making our kids - How well they do on some standardized test, but when faced with challenge, a set back, or when the going gets tough, How do our kids turn out. What lessons are they learning today that will build the Grit that it takes to mix skill and effort to achieve what they set out to accomplish, in a few years, and on into adulthood. This is a question that Martin Seligman proposes in his book, Flourish (http://amzn.to/WXGuER). I encourage you to read it.

Teaching can be a lot like improvisational acting when your goals are making your students look good, listening and responding appropriately, and "accepting the offer."

87% of Students Say They Gain as Much or More From Online Courses Compared to On-campus Courses

87% of Students Say They Gain as Much or More From Online Courses Compared to On-campus Courses | Esquimalt High School English 12 | Scoop.it

Here at the Australian National University, we have put together a series of four MOOCs covering different areas of modern astrophysics (Greatest Unsolved Mysteries of the Universe, Exoplanets, The Violent Universe and Cosmology). Co-taught by myself and the Nobel-prize winning discoverer of Dark Energy, Professor Brian Schmidt, three of these courses ran in 2014, and had an enrolment of over 40,000 students from 178 countries. Those who passed the courses were extremely diverse, ranging from an 11 year old school child to a 92 year old retired professor. Around 70% of the students already held a college degree.

Gerald Carey's curator insight, December 5, 2013 5:54 AM

From the website:

"In this session we’re going to: Use a Google Doc to show how we work together and discuss what works for us Describe and give examples of public writing. Show which parts of a Google Doc we use for what. Address some of the difficulties we encounter as we work in this way. Demo all of this in a meta-sort of way, so you can watch it unfold before your very eyes. (And hopefully film this demo so you have something to look at and refer to afterward) - See more at: http://www.phd2published.com/2013/11/27/collaborative-and-public-writing-techniques-for-google-docs-by-charlotte-frost-and-jesse-stommel/#sthash.f2RiBDj3.dpuf";

 

A fairly detailed account of how Google Docs is used in a University course.
