Problem, Brain, Challenged Based Learning…Oh My! Distinguishing Between the M... - 0 views

  • No matter what, as educators, we must engage all learners and equip them with the skills for the 21st century. I suggest student centered learning which is doing what is best based on the student. Yes, that could mean 8 different lesson plans but isn’t that why we are in education, to do what’s best for them!

    "How-to video: Creating a digital classroom project, using Glogster
    Brief synopsis: With Glogster's education platform, located at edu.glogster.com, teachers can expand their use of the web-based poster creation tool, Glogster. The edu Glogster site gives teachers more power than the standard Glogster application. With the educational Glogster Web 2.0 application, teachers can register their students for their own glogster accounts, all of which are contained in the teacher's Glogster account. Students can complete projects on one unit (see how-to video above) and those projects can be shared in the classroom Glogster site."

Google Changes Its Tune on Interviews - Vault: Blog - 0 views

  • Thus, the old pre-reqs are out: GPAs, transcripts, SATS.  In fact, Google is beginning to disregard academic educations altogether: they're just not a good predictor of success at the company. Says Bock, "After two or three years, your ability to perform at Google is completely unrelated to how you performed when you were in school, because the skills you required in college are very different. You’re also fundamentally a different person. You learn and grow, you think about things differently."

    According to the Times, Google is putting its money where its mouth is: they've actually increased their hires with no college education—14% of some of its teams have never been to school, according to Bock.

    Instead, the emphasis is on hiring candidates who are leaders, and work well in teams. The only way to discover this, says Bock, is through "structured" behavior interviews that assess how a person makes decisions. The winning interviewees will be able to demonstrate that they are "consistent and fair in how [they] think about making decisions and that there’s an element of predictability." This is key to building trust among team members once hired, he explains. "If a leader is consistent, people on their teams experience tremendous freedom, because then they know that within certain parameters, they can do whatever they want. If your manager is all over the place, you’re never going to know what you can do, and you’re going to experience it as very restrictive."
