Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation. E-Learning in Higher Education in Latin America. Home | COL. Skills and Education for Innovation. This strand of the Innovation Strategy in Education and Training aims to identify the skills required for innovation-driven societies and how education stakeholders can foster them. What skills are needed in order to promote innovation at the society level?

The research literature on skills for innovation shows that innovative societies require a broad mix of skills. How do the most innovative organisations make use of their staff’s skills? Innovative workplaces typically support individual and organisational learning and training and give discretion to their employees. At the individual level, we define “skills for innovation” as: technical skills (knowledge and expertise or know-how in a field); skills in thinking and creativity (critical faculties, imagination, curiosity); and behavioural and social skills (self-confidence, energy, passion, leadership, collaboration, persuasion). Education - OECD. Prácticas educativas abiertas - reAprender. A diferencia de los Recursos Educativos Abiertos (REA), todavía no existe un acuerdo acerca de lo que significa la expresión “Práctica Educativa Abierta” (PEA).

El informe Beyond OER: Shifting Focus to Open Educational Practices, señala que, en principio, corresponden a una segunda fase del movimiento de Recursos Educativos Abiertos, yendo más allá del acceso hacia arquitecturas de aprendizaje abierto; su foco está en el aprendizaje como construcción + compartir; e implican un cambio en las culturas educativas. Como definición, se plantean dos alternativas: “…son prácticas que soportan la (re)utilización y producción de Recursos Educativos Abiertos a través de políticas educativas, que promueven modelos pedagógicos innovadores, y respetan y empoderan a los aprendices como co-productores en su camino de aprendizaje a lo largo de la vida.”

Red iberoamericana de docentes. THE 7TH SA INNOVATION SUMMIT | SA Innovation Summit. 6 Ed Tech Tools to Try in 201 6. About a year ago, I published an e-book called the Teacher’s Guide to Tech. Over the last month, I have been updating it for 2016, adding over 30 new tools and refreshing the information I had about the original ones.

I have to say, the 2015 version was excellent, but now it’s SO MUCH BETTER. (To take a peek at the guide, scroll to the bottom of this post.) In the process, I discovered some tools that I absolutely fell in love with, and I wanted to share them with you here. Let’s take a look.

Los técnicos del Acueducto Metropolitano de Bucaramanga quedaron perplejos al ver el método casero con el que el ingeniero químico Benjamín Mancera Bravo ahorra mensualmente la mitad del líquido que consumen, en promedio, ocho personas en una casa. Llegaron alertados por el aumento del registro mensual del agua de 12 a 21 metros cúbicos, pero muy pronto apagaron sus medidores y detectores de fugas porque se dieron cuenta de que el profesor en las Unidades Tecnológicas de Santander y exsupervisor de piscinas del Ministerio de Salud había montado en los tres pisos de su casa un sistema para almacenar el agua lluvia y reutilizar tanto el agua de la lavadora como de la ropa que se lava a mano. La alteración ocurrió porque con la reducción de las lluvias en la ciudad, Mancera tuvo que echar mano del acueducto. Normalmente, la familia de cuatro personas y sus cuatro inquilinos gastan 12 metros cúbicos de agua, que en promedio es lo que consumen tres personas en Bucaramanga.

Innovating Pedagogy 2015, a new report from The Open University and SRI International, identifies 10 trends that are likely to transform education in coming years. These are the trends, listed in an approximate order of immediacy and timescale to widespread implementation. Crossover learningLearning in informing settings, such as museums and clubs, that links educational content with issues that matter in learners’ lives. Learning in schools and universities can be enriched by experiences from everyday life, and informal learning can be deepened by questions and knowledge from the classroom.

Learning through argumentationMimicking the argumentation style of professional scientists and mathematicians to develop understanding of contrasting ideas, thus deepening learning, and to make technical reasoning public, for all to learn. Incidental learningUnplanned or unintentional learning that may occur while carrying out an activity that is seemingly unrelated to what is learned. WhatNowEdTech - Home.

13 October 2014 Dear Parents/Carers As you may be aware, Impington Village College is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year. We had a very successful weekend on 13-14 September marking the opening of the College in 1939 and we have welcomed in a full programme of events running throughout the academic year. The core and original building of IVC is Grade I listed, meaning that it is recognised as a nationally significant building with historic and architectural importance that needs to be restored and protected.

During the summer, the first stage of restoration works commenced on the interior and exterior of the Gropius Hall and Prom. Funding has been secured from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Wolfson Foundation, with crucial support and seed funding from the Parents, Staff, and Friends Association (PSFA). We have also been fortunate enough to receive support from the Henry Morris Memorial Trust who, to help match the grant award requirement, have pledged 400 books to the College. Visual Thinking for Business - Online Course. Attention is the most valuable currency in today’s dynamic and fast business environment. How can you clearly communicate complex ideas and project plans? How can you generate interest and captivate your audience?

The answer lies in "Visual Thinking", a growing trend that originates from Silicon Valley and the Stanford D-School: practitioners as well as researchers have realised that the more complex, dynamic and electronic the business environment becomes, the more important it is to be able to master such complexity via visualisation in meetings, presentations and discussions.

This is the first public online course offered by the top-tier business school, the WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management. By the end of this course, you will master two very important tools: Elementary drawing skills You will learn to create representative objects and artefacts as well as people and characters.
