Passion Based Learning, Week 4: Do One Thing Really Well | Reading By Example - 44 views

  •  
    Any time when we can put students in the role of teacher can be a benefit to everyone. I wouldn't say passion-based, student-driven learning is any less work than a more traditional model of instruction, but in this context, I could not image a better way to teach.

  •  
    "There seems to be a fine line between passion and frustration. But if we are experiencing emotions in our endeavors, that should say something about the learning climate we are participating in. It means we care deeply about the process and the outcomes."

    Last week I posted Passion and Professional Development: Four Anecdotes, the first part of a chapter I'm writing for a book edited by Mike Lawrence. This post includes three more anecdotes written for the same chapter. Again, I'd be thrilled if some of you find inspiration here - and I'd be grateful for any feedback you can provide.

Attention versus distraction? What that big NY Times story leaves out » Niema... - 51 views

  •  
    The web is a space whose very abundance of information - and whose very informational infrastructure - trains our attention to follow our interests. And vice versa. In that, it's empowering information as a function of interest. It's telling Vishal that it's better to spend time with video than with Vonnegut - simply because he's more interested in editing than in reading. Vishal needs needs no other justification for his choice; interest itself is its own acquittal.

    And we're seeing the same thing in news. While formal learning has been, in the pre-digital world, a matter of rote obligation in the service of intellectual catholicism - and news consumption has been a matter of the bundle rather than the atom - the web-powered world is creating a knowledge economy that spins on the axis of interest. Individual interest. The web inculcates a follow your bliss approach to learning that seeps, slowly, into the broader realm of information; under its influence, our notion of knowledge is slowly shedding its normative layers.

    For most of my life (along with millions of other students) I have been taught to believe that the secret to a successful life is to get outstanding grades. Slowly over the years however, I have discovered this premise to be completely false.

Futurist: To fix education, think Web 2.0 - CNET News - 0 views

  • He suggested a "hybrid" learning approach. Schools can teach essential knowledge and critical thinking through somewhat traditional means. But they should complement that teaching with what Seely Brown called "passion-based learning" that focuses on getting students more engaged with topic experts.

      This should be useful way for the less "techy" to accept and accomodate the contribution Web 2 can make.
