In addition, data was gathered from educators at state-level conference sessions in 10 states, surveys, and focus groups Chicago and Washington, D.C.

The Learning Puzzle Will a group of schools around the world crack the mystery of how to make education irresistible to students?

The 5 Cs in Education: What If… Sketchnoting in the Process

I used Airserver to mirror my iPad display to my laptopUsed Screenflow to record myself sketching the main points of the presentationUsed Screenflow to speed up the recorded footage from 30+ minutes to 2.5 minutesExported, then imported into iMovie to add credtits and music This was the first time doing a screencast this way for me…there are a few kinks that I still need to work out (how to NOT record the screenflow toolbar). [The sketchnotes created in the video below were NOT created live, but AFTER, I had created the slide deck already} Here is the slide deck for the presentation Related Sketchnoting and Yet Another Dimension Experimenting with sketchnoting as note taking and as visual summaries and slide design has been an area of intense interest for me over the past six months. 24.

Learning in Hand. Developing rubrics that really work. For learners, teachers and designers using crowd-sourcing in digital environments. Wicked problem. A wicked problem is a problem that is difficult or impossible to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements that are often difficult to recognize.

Wicked problem

The use of term "wicked" here has come to denote resistance to resolution, rather than evil.[1] Moreover, because of complex interdependencies, the effort to solve one aspect of a wicked problem may reveal or create other problems. Characteristics[edit] Rittel and Webber's 1973 formulation of wicked problems in social policy planning specified ten characteristics:[3][4] Conklin later generalized the concept of problem wickedness to areas other than planning and policy. The defining characteristics are:[5] The problem is not understood until after the formulation of a solution.Wicked problems have no stopping rule.Solutions to wicked problems are not right or wrong.Every wicked problem is essentially novel and unique.Every solution to a wicked problem is a 'one shot operation.'

How a Teen Knew She was Ready to Teach Computer Coding Skills. Diplomas, certificates and accreditation are just some of the indicators that let aspiring educators know they’re ready to teach.

How a Teen Knew She was Ready to Teach Computer Coding Skills

But what happens when your passion gets ahead of your level of experience? Ming Horn was debating her sense of readiness earlier this year when she set out on an ambitious plan to teach code to teens at the Future Light Orphanage in Cambodia. Horn, then a junior at Berkeley High School in California, had never taught a classroom of students, nor did she have any fluency in Khmer. What she did have, however, was her experience as a learner. “I don’t know how computer science classes are taught, but I know how I learn — project-based, experimental, asking people in the community,” she told an audience this week at the Big Ideas Fest hosted by ISKME.

The case for 21st-century learning - OECD

First, jobs: employment rates are higher among people with more education than among those with less. This has continued to be the case during the crisis. Also, in those OECD countries where college education has expanded most over recent decades, learning differentials for college graduates have continued to rise compared with school leavers, for instance.
