'The Objective of Education Is Learning, Not Teaching' - Knowledge@Wharton - 0 views

  •  
    "In their book, Turning Learning Right Side Up: Putting Education Back on Track, authors Russell L. Ackoff and Daniel Greenberg point out that today's education system is seriously flawed -- it focuses on teaching rather than learning. "Why should children -- or adults -- be asked to do something computers and related equipment can do much better than they can?" the authors ask in the following excerpt from the book. "Why doesn't education focus on what humans can do better than the machines and instruments they create?"

    "Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth learning can be taught."
    -- Oscar Wilde"

Starting a New School Year: Nine Tips for Collaboration | Edutopia - 0 views

  •  
    "Getting the school year started right can mean calling home with a positive message, stepping out of your comfort zone or simply asking for help. The connections you make in August can serve you well through the trials of K-12 education. You never know when you're going to need help -- from an encouraging smile to a better way to assess a standard. While the Internet and social media are great, they are merely tools to connect you with the people behind all of the accounts. With so much to do, it can be easy to push collaboration back, but this can have a long-term erosive effect on your happiness in teaching.

    The earlier you start, the easier it becomes. "

Selling Ice to Eskimos: The falling value of knowledge « Douchy's Blog - 0 views

  •  
    "Great teachers in this second decade, will need more than subject knowledge to have value. In the 20th Century, it was arguably the most important quality of a teacher. "She knows her stuff" was a common student endorsement of a quality teacher.

    But "knowing your stuff" won't be sufficient any more. Wikipedia knows it's stuff, too. Better than you do, no doubt. The differentiator of success for a teacher will be the way you creatively translate knowledge to the lives of your students, the way you inspire them to discover knowledge themselves, and the way you infuse the learning process with joy."

To flip or not to flip | Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age - 1 views

  •  
    I have become interested in the idea of 'flipping' the classroom since I first read about it on Karl Fisch's Fischalgebra blog (see resources at the end of this post).  He describes how he makes eight to ten minute 'mini-lessons/lectures' for his students which they have to watch at home as 'homework'.

10 Ways To Use Avatars In Education | Digital Learning Environments - 2 views

  •  
    "As overcrowded classrooms, crunched school district budgets, and online, open learning become more prominent in lower and higher education - for better or worse - teachers and students are feeling stretched in many directions. While the hoped for result in democratic learning is that we'll all be more connected, the truth is that we're also losing valuable face time and struggling to find new ways to bring the world back to students.

    Avatars are being used to help these challenges, by helping younger students contextualize history lessons, giving teachers more direct training before they even meet students, and more. Here are 10 amazing ways avatars are being used in education."
