How To Make Learning Visible: A Spectrum by Terry Heick What students say and do and create are products of thought processes that, more or less, are predictable–and of significant potential if we can make those processes visible. The idea of making learning visible isn’t new. This is an idea as old as conversation or writing–show me what you know. It comes in many forms, from essays, quizzes, and exams, to the lifeless “What’d you learn in school today?” Conversation after school. Playing an automotive racing video game recently, I unlocked a badge for accruing a certain number of miles on a specific track. On modern video game platforms like The Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam, no one really cares about these collections because everyone has them.

In a learning ecology–as we use them now–digital badges usually cause little excitement and mean nothing. So, in the best of cases, these icons can be gathered into a personal collection to act as an uber-report card. Transfer. A Guide To Questioning In The Classroom.

Why Questions Are More Important Than Answers The Purpose of Questions. How To Design A 21st Century Assessment - View Original Photo This is my 200th Blog Post on ASCD EDge. I wanted it to be memorable and exciting and EDgy and relevant to what’s going on in classrooms right now. So I want to share a bit of my Digigogy with you. While I’ve used the term Digigogy in blog posts before, and written about in books, I don’t think I’ve ever defined it in a blog post. In essence, Digigogy is a blend of the words Digital and Pedagogy, a made-up word that I loosely define as “how we teach with technology.” Now there are close to 10,000 results with entries from all over the world. Since its inception, the term has expanded in meaning to be more inclusive and enveloping of every effort made to bring the classroom into a contemporary zone.

I pay careful attention to the Blogosphere and the Twitterverse. I also still see some room for improvement. I’ve been seeing a lot of blog posts lately that advocate for technology events. I get it, though. I would like to simplify the digigogy.

By design, it focuses attention away from content and instruction, and instead emphasizes the “cognitive events” in the mind of a child. And this is no small change. For decades, education reform has been focused on curriculum, assessment, instruction, and more recently standards, and data, with these efforts only bleeding over into how students think briefly, and by chance. This stands in contrast to the characteristics of the early 21st century, which include persistent connectivity, dynamic media forms, information-rich (digital and non-digital) environments, and an emphasis on visibility for pretty much everything.

She was kind, often helped her students, and created a wonderful classroom environment that was rare in my high school experience. To this day, I regard her as a great educator; one of the very best. Due to her help, I improved my writing abilities to the point I moved ahead to an Honors course the very next year.

As I now reflect upon her and my learning experiences fondly, I had only one criticism – I did the same type of work day in and day out. Nowadays, many educators use the same methods over and over again in their lessons for students to express themselves and demonstrate their new knowledge. Below is a diverse list adapted from resources found at of potential student products or activities learners can use to demonstrate their mastery of lesson content. The Rise of the Internet of Things and the Race to a Zero Marginal Cost Society | Jeremy Rifkin. This essay is the second in a four-part series on the theme, "The Third Industrial Revolution. " An introduction by Arianna Huffington is available here.

Part one is available here. Part three is here. Part four is here. The bulk of the energy we use to heat our homes and run our appliances, power our businesses, drive our vehicles and operate every part of the global economy will be generated at near zero marginal cost and be nearly free in the coming decades. The quickening pace of renewable energy deployment is due, in large part, to the plunging cost of solar and wind energy harvesting technologies.

The impact on society of near zero marginal cost solar and wind energy is all the more pronounced when we consider the enormous potential of these energy sources. The Energy Internet is comprised of five foundational pillars, all of which have to be phased in simultaneously for the system to operate efficiently. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

World’s Advanced Saving Project (WASP), which is a company that builds 3D printers, has created a 40 foot tall, 20 foot wide printer that uses locally sourced, eco-friendly materials like clay or dirt to construct low-cost houses. The massive machine basically consists of a metal frame with a nozzle in the center that rotates forming a structure layer by layer all while consuming very little energy.

WASP built the gigantic printer, called the Big Delta, with the aim of providing housing quickly and efficiently to those in need. For example, this technology could be used to provide housing in developing nations or to provide relief to those in disaster zones who have lost their homes. Adequate housing is global problem plaguing millions of people. Printers like the one WASP created could potentially provide some relief to the housing crisis.

By the year 2030, advancements will excel anything we’ve seen before concerning human intelligence. In fact, predictions offer glimpses of something truly amazing – the development of a human hybrid, a mind that thinks in artificial intelligence. Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google, spoke openly about this idea at the Exponential Finance Conference in New York. He predicts that humans will have hybrid brains able to connect to the cloud, just as with computers. In this cloud, there will be thousands of computers which will update human intelligence. The larger the cloud, the more complicated the thinking.

Kurzweil says: “Our hybrid thinking will be a combination of biological and non-biological thought processes.” By the end of 2030, our thinking should be almost entirely non-biological and able to function much like an external hard drive – having the ability to backup information as with technology.

MIT Researcher’s New Warning: At Today’s Rate, Half of All U.S. Children Will Be Autistic (by 2025) Research scientist Stephanie Seneff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a widely published author on topics ranging from Azlheimer’s Disease to autism and cardiovascular disease, raised plenty of eyebrows recently with a bold proclamation on autism at a special panel in Massachusetts about genetically modified organisms and other topics.

“At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic,” Seneff said last Thursday in Groton, MA at an event sponsored by the holistic-focused Groton Wellness organization. Seneff presented slides showing a remarkably consistent correlation between the rising use of Roundup (with its active ingredient glyphosate) on crops and the rising rates of autism; while it doesn’t show a direct correlation it does give researchers plenty to think about, especially considering Seneff’s research into the side effects of autism that mimic glyphosate toxicity and deficiencies.
