With that in mind, we’ve picked our top 10 photo composition ‘rules’ to show you how to transform your images.

How we can stop Africa's scientific brain drain

How we can stop Africa's scientific brain drain | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
How can Africans find solutions to Africa's problems? Conservation biologist Kevin Njabo tells his personal story of how he nearly became part of the group of African scientists who seek an education abroad and never return -- and why he's now building a permanent base on the continent to nurture and support local talent. "I'm not coming back alone. I'm bringing with me Western scientists, entrepreneurs and students," Njabo says. "When that happens, Africa will be on the way to solving Africa's problems."

The 5 Levels of Trust | Jesse Lyn Stoner

The 5 Levels of Trust | Jesse Lyn Stoner | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
What is Trust?
As important as trust is, one of the problems is we are not always talking about the same thing when we talk about trust. Trust is a general, all-encompassing word that means many different things.
Huge misunderstandings can occur when we talk about “trust.” If you say you don’t trust someone, do you mean you don’t believe they are honest or do you mean you don’t believe you can depend on them to get the job done on time? If someone says they don’t trust you, what exactly don’t they trust?
There are different levels and intensity of trust. Honesty is a more basic level and has a stronger intensity than dependability.
Understanding the levels of trust and their intensity can help you build a strong foundation of trust and communicate more clearly when others violate your trust.

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Unstructured learning is an authentic real-world way of learning. That’s because the real world itself doesn’t have neat compartments or set disciplines for success. It demands adaptability, patience, and a willingness to learn and to use what is learned in the moment. Most of all, it requires us to take full responsibility for what we learn.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, December 26, 2017 8:36 AM

“El aprendizaje no estructurado ocurre cuando dejamos que los estudiantes jueguen sin una guía para que puedan sacar conclusiones por sí mismos. Sin embargo, todavía este tipo de aprendizaje requiere del apoyo del maestro, particularmente en las primeras etapas del proceso. Esto sucede en forma de diseño de escenarios, desarrollo de plantillas, formulación de preguntas orientadoras, etc. Al final, sin embargo, todos estos métodos están diseñados para apoyar y guiar a los estudiantes mientras caminan felices a través de lo desconocido”. (Global Digital Citizen Foundation, 2017)

It demands adaptability, patience, and a willingness to learn and to use what is learned in the moment. Most of all, it requires us to take full responsibility for what we learn.

 

It’s time to play and to let go of rigid teaching in favour of unstructured learning. For this to happen, teachers have to foster trust in their students. They have to be willing to take a step back and put a little slack on the reins of traditional pedagogy. In short, we need to let things get a little messy. Ease into it—it’s a bold step and it will transform everything.

Its not YOU the teacher doing all the presenting but its about guiding and facilitating people through real world problems and allowing them to innovate,apply principles ,models  and come to their own conclusions.

Terrific Mini Guide to Help Students Think Critically ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Terrific Mini Guide to Help Students Think Critically ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Questioning is the key to critical thinking and through questions students get to explore the deep layers of meanings that would otherwise go unnoticed. Of course not all questions have this analytical ability. For instance, closed questions tend to limit the thinking choices available for students. The same with questions that promote factual recalling. Questions that emphasize the mechanical on the analytical are out of the list.

In today's post, I am sharing with you this mini guide created by Foundation of Critical Thinking which you can use with your students to help them better comprehend and apply critical thinking in their learning. This could also be a very good resource teachers can draw on to enhance their questioning strategies.

What College Doesn’t Teach You About Building a Network

Recently, I spoke to a group of students at Boston University’s College of Communication about how to navigate the tricky job market after graduation from lessons I learned in researching my book, There Is Life After College. 

At one point, the conversation turned to networking, and I was peppered with questions about a Catch-22 new graduates typically face: how do they build a professional network if they never held a full-time job?
