What do we need to know? - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    I keep circling back to this question of what do we need to know, or to learn. It comes up so often in conversations around education and is closely connected to what we hope to achieve for our students. It is a question whose answer shapes not only what we teach but how we teach and what we assess. It strikes at the heart of how we perceive the role of education in society and the way we answer It reveals much about our personal philosophy of education.

Low crude prices good for India and indian stock market - 0 views

  •  
    According to Richard Gibbs of Macquarie Securities reduced crude prices goes in favour of the Indian economy and gives RBI a scope for monetary accommodation Richard Gibbs Global HD, Macquarie More about the Expert Richard Gibbs, Global Head of Macquarie Securities is upbeat on India because he thinks there is room for structural expansion and the demand is much better than anywhere else in the world. According to him reduced crude prices goes in favour of the Indian economy and gives RBI a scope for monetary accommodation. it is also likely to produce some tailwind for the global economy. "it certainly provides latitude on the trade side but also in terms of the inflation side for the economy as well." The house remains a buyer on India. What is the sense you are getting. Are we now facing a fairly big challenge to global growth and therefore are risk assets going to head lower? A: I think the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is articulating that fairly well as we move into the IMF World Bank annual meeting in the next few days. it really is a case where the US is I suppose the best if you see IMF's parlance and that's for investors who have been searching for growth is a disappointment. So, now I suspect we are going to have people turning back towards in search for yield and that has become difficult as well with the expansion in quantitative easing measures around the world but most particularly by the European Central Bank of course. At the end of the day lower crude prices are probably growth positive and the issue there is whether they pertaining further disinflationary pressure/deflationary pressure in the major economies. Certainly for an economy like India, cooling in crude prices is a positive. it certainly provides latitude on the trade side but also in terms of the inflation side for the economy as well. it's a bit of a two-edged sword as I suppose in that sense but overall lower crude prices are likely to produce some tailwind for the global eco

Explaining Collaboration to Learners - 0 views

  • In a collaborative workspace, people amplify one another
  • The first is, “Accept every offer.”
  • “Make your partner look good.”
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • Focus on “This is what I have, what can I add to it?  How do I make my partner look good?”
  • An interested person leans in and listens closely when group members have something to say; an interested person is curious about solutions other than the first one suggested.  An interested person is more concerned about the process than their role in it.  An interested person does more to amplify the people around them.
  • receive information as well as send it.
  • Communicate, Not Transmit
  • Collaboration in the Classroom? So, what do learners need to know to better understand what collaboration really means? Collaboration absolutely requires the participation of two or more people; if you could accomplish the work by yourself, you’re cooperating, not collaborating. Collaboration Is enhanced by “accepting every offer” and “making your partner look good.”  Focus on what you can add to what others have suggested rather than revising or fixing their ideas or solutions. Collaboration is facilitated by group members that focus on being *interested* rather than being *interesting* - be curious about others’ ideas, explore the possibilities, enjoy the process rather than focusing to quickly on the outcome. Collaboration demands bi-directional communication in which your ideas are shaped by the ideas of others; you must work to make sure your ideas are comprehensible.

    EduCon 2.2 is both a conversation and a conference. And it is not a technology conference. it is an education conference. it is, hopefully, an innovation conference where we can come together, both in person and virtually, to discuss the future of schools. Every session will be an opportunity to discuss and debate ideas -- from the very practical to the big dreams. 1256484170_twitter_02.png 1256484162_facebook_02.png 1256484938_delicious.png The Axioms Guiding Principles of EduCon 2.2 1) Our schools must be inquiry-driven, thoughtful and empowering for all members 2) Our schools must be about co-creating -- together with our students -- the 21st Century Citizen 3) Technology must serve pedagogy, not the other way around. 4) Technology must enable students to research, create, communicate and collaborate 5) Learning can -- and must -- be networked.

Why Aren't We Talking More About iTunes U? - iPads in Education - 8 views

  •  
    "With so many schools adopting the use of iPads I find it strange that we aren't hearing more about the incredible opportunities available in itunes U. Well I suppose it isn't that strange given that schools in the early stages of transitioning to an iPad platform are extremely busy and learning one more thing can seem overwhelming. Trust me, I understand that, but I believe if you were to learn one more thing it should be about the power of itunes U. The possibilities of this incredible tool are endless. I'd like to provide you with just a few examples of the many uses of itunes U in the hopes that more schools will join this incredible network of learning resources."
