A great video from Derek Alexander Muller on the ways in which new technologies have come (and gone) as the greatest new thing. Worth watching!

When so many new technologies promise to transform education - what role is left to the teacher?  Why is the teacher still important?  This powerful clip effectively presents compelling arguments for the importance of teaching students in a 'social' classroom setting - with reference to 'how' students learn; making the best of all types of tools to aid what goes on 'in the student's head'.

Video Games and Social Emotional Learning

"A lot of talk, press, and focus in this era of learning is on common core standards and 21st century skills and literacies.  What is often neglected is the importance of building social emotional skills within the classroom."

There is a lot to be said for teaching the whole student by making sure these skills are developed and encouraged as an equally important part of 21st century learning.

Shouldn't Education and Learning Be the Same Thing?

Shouldn't Education and Learning Be the Same Thing? | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Schooling and institutionalized education have become removed from true, instinctual, and human/humane learning.  Humans have been learning since the beginning of time with major discoveries and innovations historically and currently emerging in spite of school.  This is the biggest problem I have with schools – most are contrived and coercive and do not honor the innate human need and desire to learn, discover, and evolve."

Interesting post which discusses how to pull schools out of the 20th century. 

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 20, 2014 10:24 PM

In this post Jackie Gerstein states "to fully understand the purpose of school, the history of its evolution as an institution needs to be understood." After this is discussed she provides refers to an article that discusses "how to bring our schools out of the 20th century."

The next section shares quotes from a wide range of people on schooling. Three are below.

* Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.  Albert Einstein

* Knowledge that is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind. Plato

* Education is one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.  Bertrand Russell

She then looks at the messages sent out by our current school system and asks if we are questioning "What is the purpose of school?"

In fact, there are 8 questions that are raised in this post. You can find them in the image above, or you may click through to the post.

student at the heart of learning. problem based and context based learning key for this. students will often ask " why are we doing this?" if they can apply the lesson to their life it then becomes obvious why they are learning
