OMG-This is Brilliant-Earth’s History in 2 Minutes

OMG-This is Brilliant-Earth’s History in 2 Minutes | scoopthismags | Scoop.it

Let’s start with the fact that this was done by a 19 year old. Then we can add that he is in a beginners video production class. Then lets add that he was able to find all of these photos with quick and easy internet searches for photos. Now add to the whole picture that after he uploaded the video, in three months he received over 1 million views. It is a different world from when older generations used linear editing systems.

Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning

Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning | scoopthismags | Scoop.it

"Connected learning is a necessity in this digital age. More and more of our students learning, attention, and access to information is taking place outside of classrooms and through online networks and exchanges. Connected learning, however, can help them cultivate the skills necessary for fulfilling adult lives and careers and that formal instruction alone could not afford."

Make Just One Change

Make Just One Change | scoopthismags | Scoop.it

The authors of Make Just One Change argue that formulating one’s own questions is “the single most essential skill for learning”—and one that should be taught to all students. More

They also argue that it should be taught in the simplest way possible. Drawing on twenty years of experience, the authors present the Question Formulation Technique, a concise and powerful protocol that enables learners to produce their own questions, improve their questions, and strategize how to use them.

Make Just One Change features the voices and experiences of teachers in classrooms across the country to illustrate the use of the Question Formulation Technique across grade levels and subject areas and with different kinds of learners. Less

Praise

This book begins with the seemingly simple request to get students to ask their own questions, but at heart it's a book about creating a classroom alive with dialogue, inquiry, and respect for students' minds.       — Mike Rose, author of Why School? Reclaiming Education for All of Us

As the title of this book indicates, Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana believe that education can be transformed if students, rather than teachers, assume responsibility for posing questions. This idea may sound simple, but it is both complex and radical: complex, in that formulating good, generative questions, and being prepared to work toward satisfactory answers, is hardly a simple undertaking; and radical, in the sense that an apparently easy move can bring about a Copernican revolution in the atmosphere of the classroom and the dynamics of learning. The authors modestly quote physicist Niels Bohr who once said, ‘An expert is someone who has made all possible mistakes in a field and there are no more to be made.’ In reading this powerful work, I was reminded of what Albert Einstein said, when he learned of Jean Piaget’s pioneering questioning of young children: ‘so simple only a genius could have thought of it.’       — Howard Gardner, The John H. and Elisabeth A. Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education

[The authors] provide . . . an inspiring vision of education at its best and an extraordinarily clear, low-tech, practical intellectual tool for turning that vision into reality.       — from the foreword by Wendy D. Puriefoy, president, Public Education Network
The protocols described in this book are easy to follow and adaptable to a variety of classrooms and subjects. These simple strategies can lead students to go into more depth in their learning and stretch the standard curriculum beyond the textbook. Students’ energy, motivation, and perseverance increase noticeably when they have more ownership of the topics they are studying.       — Hayley Dupuy, sixth-grade math and science teacher, J. L. Stanford Middle School, Palo Alto, California

Just when you think you know all you need to know, you ask another question and discover how much more there is to learn.       — Sixth-grade student, J. L. Stanford Middle School, Palo Alto About the Authors

Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana are codirectors of The Right Question Institute (RQI). They have more than twenty years experience at RQI, designing and implementing innovative, participatory educational programs and curricula. Prior to his work with RQI, Rothstein developed and implemented education programs in Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Israel. Santana is a former advocate for low-income parents and families.

What Does it Mean to Live in An Interconnected Society?

Wow.  I really want to see this.  I was also happy to see/hear Howard Rheingold in this film preview.  I took a course from him last year.

Ken

 

Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby Awards, talks about today's interconnected society at The Economist's Ideas Economy: Information 2012 event in San Francisco. I wanted to bring this to your attention because what she is speaking about concerns all of us

 

What does it mean to live in a connected world? How is it changing us, our culture and the planet?

 

Her film "Connected" is a must see! It's thought provoking and captures the essence of the experience, the anxiety, overwhelm, mystery, commonality, rapture, looks at the potential and wonder of what innovation, knowledge, discovery lies ahead. 

 

Tiffany Shlain:

 

"Go as far as you can see and when you get there. you'll be able to see even farther"
