Sugata Mitra on why children need teachers, autonomy and technology - PP117

Sugata Mitra is Professor of Educational Technology at the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences at Newcastle University, England. You may well know his ‘Hole in the Wall’ experiment, which involved giving access to computers and the internet to children and seeing what happened. This led to the ‘School in the Cloud’ and Sugata won the TED Prize in 2013 for this presentation: Rather than focus exclusively on his own work, we decided to ask Sugata questions about a wide range of current educational issues and his answers were fascinating!

How technology can actually change education. By Roger Schank You can’t read something about education these days without reading about how technology will change everything.

How technology can actually change education

Sorry to be a downer, but technology will change nothing if what is meant by technology is that we have new ways of delivering the same old material. Earn an Experiential MBA OnLine with LaSalle. VISTA's Year in Health Sciences. Our mission is to revolutionize the way people think about learning.

“People learn best when they are pursuing goals that they really care about and when what they learn helps them attain their goals. The best means of learning has always been experience.” -- Roger Schank Engines for Education, a non-profit founded by Roger Schank, was formed in 2002 to create new learning environments to replace out-dated and wrong-headed educational notions. At Engines for Education, we believe that we can replace boring and increasingly irrelevant schools with new exciting learning environments. We are attempting to chang e both what and how children learn . The Problem: What and how schools teach Why is it that children in the United States go to school for six-plus hours a day for twelve years and the result of the experience is: There are numerous problems with the way that schools attempt to teach students in the United States and most places around the globe.

Modeling Introduction

Mathematics has been described as the science of patterns. Natural science can be characterized as the investigation ofpatterns in nature. Central to both domains is the notion of model as a unit of coherently structured knowledge. Modeling Theory is concerned with models as basic structures in cognition as well as scientific knowledge. It maintains a sharp distinction between mental models that people think with and conceptual models that are publicly shared. D.

WISE - Course Room Set-up Kit

That’s not our purpose. Our materials don’t cover how to perform open-heart surgery or how to repair a car; we assume you know your profession. Instead, our courses train you in the principles of the Hubbard management system and give you the knowledge and skill to create and successfully manage a business or career. After years of training in your profession, it’s only right that you succeed in your career. In our courses you’ll find vital information that covers organizing patterns, production lines, efficiency, leadership skills, team building, communication skills, strategic planning, marketing and public relations - and covers it with information you won’t find anywhere else - the core fundamentals and every other aspect of organization you need to truly succeed in today’s workplace.

Independent Checksheets. We have set up, by necessity, an Independent Scientology course room, not affiliated with DM's because we want to practice Scientology and due to DM's 'Unclean Hands' (a doctrine in equity) we have been compelled to do so.

Independent Checksheets

We can't get Standard Scientology from DM's church anymore, because it isn't there and because he prevents us from getting it. So, here we are, with a First Amendment right, to practice our chosen religion, as guaranteed by that First Amendment and also put forth by L. Ron Hubbard himself in the Articles and Bylaws of CST differentiating a Church of Scientology (including RTC) from the 'religion of Scientology'. These Independent Checksheets (IC) were compiled by Dan Koon, Class VI Auditor who worked with LRH in Ron's Technical Research and Compilations (RTRC) based on LRH's 1978/1987 Checksheets on which tens of thousands of standard auditors were successfully trained.

LRH personally trained Dan on the TRs. More to come!
