Do you think like a millennial? Take our quiz! - What does YOLO mean? - CSMonitor.com - 5 views

  •  
    "When they're not listening to their "rap" music or wasting time on their "Eye-Phones," millennials are finding other ways to differentiate themselves from past generations. Members of this generation, born between the early 1980s and early 2000s, are the first generation raised in a whirlwind of technological advances. They get flack for thinking differently, maybe being a little impulsive, maybe making more money, and maybe not. So how do you fare . . . do you think like a millennial? "

Annie Murphy Paul: Your Morning Routine Is Making You Dull | TIME Ideas | TIME.com - 65 views

  • So what would our mornings look like if we re-engineered them in the interest of maximizing our creative problem-solving capacities? We’d set the alarm a few minutes early and lie awake in bed, following our thoughts where they lead (with a pen and paper nearby to jot down any evanescent inspirations.) We’d stand a little longer under the warm water of the shower, dismissing task-oriented thoughts (“What will I say at that 9 a.m. meeting?”) in favor of a few more minutes of mental dilation. We’d take some deep breaths during our commute, instead of succumbing to road rage. And once in the office — after we get that cup of coffee — we’d direct our computer browser not to the news of the day but to the funniest videos the web has to offer.

Thrun leaving Stanford for online startup - Technology & science - Innovation - msnbc.com - 0 views

  • Online education can also leverage the "flipped classroom" technique used by a few innovative educators, Thrun said. Students watch lectures on their own so that teachers can spend their time and energy helping students solve problems. Many of his online students have written to share their stories with Thrun. One student told of finishing online assignments in between mortar and rocket attacks in Afghanistan. Another described herself as a single mother of two young children who suffered from both job and family worries. "I took the midterm this weekend, mostly while holding a teething infant," said the anonymous mother. "None of my other issues have gone away. But I feel more determined than ever to see this through … for myself."
