Introduction to Creative Thinking - 0 views

    • Maryanne Burgos
       
      This is the viewpoint of the authors of Disrupting Class who believe that "innovation does not take root through a direct attach on the existing system.  Instead it must go around and underneath the system.  This is how disruption drives affordability, accessibility, capability and responsiveness." (p. 225)

  • Changing Direction
  • the goal is to solve the problem, not to implement a particular solution.
  • Motivation--a willingness to expend the effort--is more important than laboratory apparatus. And remember that you can always do something. Even if you cannot totally eradicate the problem from the face of the earth, you can always do something to make the situation better.
  • Mistakes aren't fun, but they sure are educational.
  • Positive Attitudes for Creativity
  • Curiosity. Creative people want to know things--all kinds of things-- just to know them. Knowledge does not require a reason. The question, "Why do you want to know that?" seems strange to the creative person, who is likely to respond, "Because I don't know the answer." Knowledge is enjoyable and often useful in strange and unexpected ways
  • halleng
  • Challenge. Curious people like to identify and challenge the assumptions behind ideas, proposals, problems, beliefs, and statements. Many assumptions, of course, turn out to be quite necessary and solid, but many others have been assumed unnecessarily, and in breaking out of those assumptions often comes a new idea, a new path, a new solution.
  • Constructive discontent. This is not a whining, griping kind of discontent, but the ability to see a need for improvement and to propose a method of making that improvement. Constructive discontent is a positive, enthusiastic discontent, reflecting the thought, "Hey, I know a way to make that better."
  • 4. A belief that most problems can be solved.
  • 5. The ability to suspend judgment and criticism.
  • Remember then that (1) an idea may begin to look good only after it becomes a bit more familiar or is seen in a slightly different context or clothing or circumstance
  • 6. Seeing the good in the bad. Creative thinkers, when faced with poor solutions, don't cast them away. Instead, they ask, "What's good about it?" because there may be something useful even in the worst ideas. And however little that good may be, it might be turned to good effect or made greater.
  • 7. Problems lead to improvements.
  • 8. A problem can also be a solution
  • 9. Problems are interesting and emotionally acceptable.
  • Miscellaneous Good Attitudes
  • 1. Perseverance.
  • 2. A flexible imagination
  • 3. A belief that mistakes are welcome. Modern society has for some reason conceived the idea that the only unforgivable thing is to fail or make a mistake. Actually failure is an opportunity; mistakes show that something is being done. So creative people have come to realize and accept emotionally that making mistakes is no negative biggie. One chief executive of a big American corporation warns all his newly hired managers, "Make sure you make a reasonable number of mistakes." Mistakes are educational and can lead to success--because they mean you are doing something.

      It was a momentary problem. Now I can open the page.
  • As we had started testing Diigo, I decided to start my portfolio here just by deciding on a unique tag, digifolio_carlaarena. Then, I created a list called "digifolio" and started adding the pages that represented my work, projects, thoughts, ideas, collections.

      What a brilliant idea. Since Portuguese teaching are going to be subjected to a very detailed evaluation process that includes a personal portfolio, this might be a good idea.

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt - Global Education Challenge - Idea Display - 3 views

  • our educational system practices have a tendency to foster dependence, passivity and a "tell me what to do" attitude. Effective learning is that students are in charge of their own learning and progress.  A growing body of research indicates that when students are working on goals they themselves have set, they are more motivated and efficient, and they achieve more than they do when working on goals that have been set by the teacher.

Half an Hour: The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On - 0 views

  • While we want to provide personalized attention, especially to submitted work, testing and grading, learning is still heavily dependent on the teacher. But because the teacher in turn is responsible for assembling, and often presenting, the materials to be learned, customization and personalization have not been practical. So we have adopted a model where small groups of people form a cohort, thus allowing the teacher to present the same material to more than one person at a time, while offering individualized interaction and assessment.
  • Though networks have always existed, modern communications technologies highlight their existence and given them a new robustness. Networks are distinct from groups in that they preserve individual autonomy and promote diversity of belief, purpose and methodology. In a network, however, people do not act as disassociated individuals, but rather, cooperate in a series of exchanges that can produce, not merely individual goods, but also social goods.
  • In the case of informal learning, however, the structure is much looser. People pursue their own objectives in their own way, while at the same time initiating and sustaining an ongoing dialogue with others pursuing similar objectives. Learning and discussion is not structured, but rather, is determined by the needs and interests of the participants.

  • it is not clear that an outcomes driven system is what students require; many valuable skills and aptitudes – art appreciation, for example – are not identifiable as an outcome. This becomes evident when we consider how learning is to be measured. In traditional learning, success is achieved not merely by passing the test but in some way being recognized as having achieved expertise. A test-only system is a coarse system of measurement for a complex achievement.
  • The products of our conversations are as concrete as test scores and grades. (Ryan, 2007) But, as the result of a complex and interactive process, they are much more complex, allowing not only for the measurement of learning, but also for the recognition of learning. As it becomes easier to simply see what a student can accomplish, the idea of a coarse-grained proxy, such as grades, will fade to the background.
  • Most educators, and most educational institutions, have not yet embraced the idea of flow and syndication in learning. They will – reluctantly – because it provides the learner with the means to manage and control his or her learning. They can keep unwanted content to a minimum (and this includes unwanted content from an institution). And they can manage many more sources – or content streams – using feed reader technology.RSS and related specifications will be one of the primary ways Personal Learning Environments connect with remote systems. To use a PLE will be essentially to immerse oneself in the flow of communications that constitutes a community of practice in some discipline or domain on the internet.
  • In the end, what will be evaluated is a complex portfolio of a student’s online activities. (Syverson & Slatin, 2006)
  • place independence means that real learning will occur in real environments, with the contributions of the students not being some artifice designed strictly for practice, but an actual contribution to the business or enterprise in question.
  • As it becomes more and more possible to teach oneself online, and even to demonstrate one’s achievement through productive membership in a community of practice, there will be greater demand for a formalized system of recognition, a way for people to demonstrate their competence in an area without having to go through a formal program of study in the area.
  • the major shift in instructional technology will be from systems centered on the educational institution to systems centered on the individual learner.
  • rather than the employment of a single system to accomplish all educational tasks, both instructors and learners will use a variety of different tools in combination with each other.
  • Automation allows us to more easily create and present content, to more easily form groups and collaborate, to more easily give tests and take surveys. This frees instructors to perform tasks that have been traditionally more difficult and time consuming – to relate to students on a personal basis, to offer coaching and moral support, to learn about and analyze a student’s inclinations and understandings.

Week 1 - Any Questions or Comments about Social Bookmarking? | Diigo - 0 views

    • Joao Alves
       
      The idea of bundling tags in weeks is a very good and simple one. Students feel there is a guidance and that they don't need to waste time searching for relevant information. It's like in webquest where you give certain sites to students to explore about a specific topic.
  • Besides, I created a tutorial with the most important features in Delicious.
  • Another aspect is that I think that online bookmarking should make us guilty-free instead of guilty because we don't check all the links we've bookmarked.
  • ...11 more annotations...
  • Who said we need to look at them all?
  • As for information overload, I consider bookmarking a way to dribble information overload. Why? If you have tons of bookmarks together with tons of people's bookmarks being tagged, you can use those bookmarks to create meaning whenever needed.
  • If you consider Diigo for that matter, you could easily set up a group and you could have the bookmarks for your students to start with and encourage them to share their bookmarks with the group. Also, I'd consider specific tags
  • I think the comments feature and the sticky notes have great potential in the classroom!
  • Working with bookmarks to make a digital portfolio sounds very creative.
  • I thought the idea of a digital portfolio using tags a very interesting one, even more with the webslides. You can keep track of all the online artifacts you've been creating. Interesting for busy educators!
  • I think a really big thing is to change one's way of thinking.
  • First, add tags that are meaningful for you, for your private retrieval, and also tags that have been suggested by the group that will help others browse through the treasures you find online.
  • Handling more information and sharing it with our colleagues should make us better teachers.
  • Every online resource we explore is bookmarked and shared with the group. I used to do that in delicious. Now, I'll have to see how to do that here. In delicious I could easily organize my tags in Weeks (bundling tags). Here, I think you can use the "lists" to organize your tags in a meaningful way to the group. I'll check that.

How could you incorporate Diigo into your classroom/session setting in a pegagogically sound way? | Diigo - 0 views

  • I created a list to one of my courses where my students themselves brought a video about environment : A beautiful lie.It was a really good experience because of the richness of their comments. Some of them in a good English , some of them in Spanglish.I had the idea to go on with that topic so I made a list with three pages (just an experiment) I highlighted some paragraphs and sticked notes suggesting the activity we're going to do with that.Then I got the widget and embeded into my blog.

How do you envision using the Webslides feature? | Diigo - 0 views

  • During the Blogging4Educators session that we co-moderated earlier this year, we created a lot of content on various sites. I bookmarked these sites, saved them to the list Blogging4Educators, and then looked at the webslides. It looks really professional, and is easy to share with others!http://slides.diigo.com/list/mhillis/blogging4educators

  • Some weeks ago, I read Michele Martin´s interesting post about creating an e-portfolio in Delicious.http://michelemartin.typepad.com/thebambooprojectblog//2008/06/using-delicious.htmlAs we had started testing Diigo, I decided to start my portfolio here just by deciding on a unique tag, digifolio_carlaarena. Then, I created a list called "digifolio" and started adding the pages that represented my work, projects, thoughts, ideas, collections. It's just in the beginning, but I guess it has potential and it can show a bit about who you are, what you believe in, what you do in a very interesting way. Still lots to do, though...I want to narrate it or, at least, add some music to it, but I haven't had time (suffering a lot on vacation in Boston!!!). The description of my list, I used to add some info about the digifolio. Then, for the description space for each link, I added some aspect about my project, work, collection or thought. Well, just an idea. I hope you enjoy it. And suggestions and comments are always welcome to improve it!http://slides.diigo.com/list/carlaarena/digifolio

Coding In Paradise: Creating a Personal Research Agenda - 0 views

  • If you do not work on an important problem, it's unlikely you'll do important work.
  • It's not the consequence that makes a problem important, it is that you have a reasonable attack
  •  
    1.About having a research agenda: 1.1."It is a list of questions to focus on, the organizing principle around which you work" 1.2.Benefits from having a personal research agenda: Keeps the track of meaning like following a thread while your thought mules over those questions. 2. Sharing of personal research questions: They turn around the future web - The Editable Web: finding "a web browser that deeply embeds collaboration and editing." 3. The fabulous "Web-utopia": "people, collaboration and usability are first class citizens; ... seamless community as a major component of the browser...unifying editing and community (Tim Berner)...collaborative hypertext... 4."How can we create communication technologies that provide ever greater levels of interpersonal connection...? 5. "How can we create information technologies of focus and minimal distraction...?" ("The law of conservation of attention") 6. On search systems 7. On transforming how we link and talk about information and docs 8. Lightening the handling of events 9. On effectiveness at creating ideas 10. On creating technologies as important as writing

    Gleaned from Carla Arena's collection
  •  
    Alan Levine's list of 50 tools you can use to tell stories, rounded out with examples from him and others.
  •  
    "The Fifty Tools Below you will find 50+ web tools you can use to create your own web-based story. Again, the mission is not to review or try every single one (that would be madness, I know), but pick one that sounds interesting and see if you can produce something. I have used each tool to produce an example of the original Dominoe story, plus links are provided, where available, to examples by other people. Please share your own examples or thoughts in the discussion area of this wiki. But before rummaging around the toolbox, have you done your prep work? Do you have your story idea or presentation concept outlined, developed? This should be on paper or in a document file or scribbled on the back of a napkin, but do not rely on making it up as you go! If not, go back 2 spaces and do this now. Next- do you have your media assets available, your images, video clips, audio files-- if not go find your media now."
