Howard Gardner, multiple intelligences and education. Howard Gardner, multiple intelligences and education.
Howard Gardner’s work around multiple intelligences has had a profound impact on thinking and practice in education – especially in the United States. Here we explore the theory of multiple intelligences; why it has found a ready audience amongst educationalists; and some of the issues around its conceptualization and realization. Independent Study into School Leadership. In November 2005, the School Teachers' Review Body (STRB) published its Fifteenth Report in which it recommended an independent study to examine the roles, responsibilities, structures and reward systems for school leaders in England and Wales.
Following the report, the DfES commissioned PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in April 2006 to undertake an independent research study on school leadership. The main aims of the study were to provide a comprehensive and independent account of existing, emerging and potential models of school headship and the wider leadership team that are effective in raising standards for all pupils. The study was based on an intensive programme of quantitative and qualitative research involving the following key elements: An extensive review of existing academic and policy literature on leadership in education, both nationally and internationally; and Qualitative research in 50 schools throughout England and Wales. Consciousness. Choice Point: Align Your Purpose - A Documentary Film by Harry Massey. Choice Point was born of a passion and a vision of a better world through a collective humanity.
It is a feature-length documentary film which probes the issues of transformational change and how when one person transforms his or her own life, that person can contribute in a positive way to the shaping of the world. And now, for the first time, we are opening up the opportunity for like-minded people to share in our vision, support the film and get their hand on money-can't-buy rewards! The world is facing multiple “choice points” at this moment in history: individuals are making choices to change their nations, nature is giving us a wake-up call, economies are struggling, and for many of us the future looks uncertain.
Motivating the unmotivated. Njmetasem.pdf (application/pdf Object) Deep and Surface learning. It is important to clarify what they are not.
Although learners may be classified as “deep” or “surface”, they are not attributes of individuals: one person may use both approaches at different times, although she or he may have a preference for one or the other. They correlate fairly closely with motivation: “deep” with intrinsic motivation and “surface” with extrinsic, but they are not necessarily the same thing. Either approach can be adopted by a person with either motivation. Framework for action on interprofessional education and collaborative practice.

In 1990, in my role as a science reporter at The New York Times, I chanced upon an article in a small academic journal by two psychologists, John Mayer, now at the University of New Hampshire, and Yale’s Peter Salovey.
Mayer and Salovey offered the first formulation of a concept they called “emotional intelligence.” Those were days when the preeminence of IQ as the standard of excellence in life was unquestioned; a debate raged over whether it was set in our genes or due to experience. Why Arts Education Is Crucial, and Who's Doing It Best. Art and music are key to student development.
"Art does not solve problems, but makes us aware of their existence," sculptor Magdalena Abakanowicz has said. Arts education, on the other hand, does solve problems. » 9 Essential Skills Kids Should Learn. Post written by Leo Babauta.
Kids in today’s school system are not being prepared well for tomorrow’s world. As someone who went from the corporate world and then the government world to the ever-changing online world, I know how the world of yesterday is rapidly becoming irrelevant. I was trained in the newspaper industry, where we all believed we would be relevant forever — and I now believe will go the way of the horse and buggy. Unfortunately, I was educated in a school system that believed the world in which it existed would remain essentially the same, with minor changes in fashion. Successful Learning: Peer Learning. Many institutions of learning now promote instructional methods involving ‘active’ learning that present opportunities for students to formulate their own questions, discuss issues, explain their viewpoints, and engage in cooperative learning by working in teams on problems and projects.
‘Peer learning’ is a form of cooperative learning that enhances the value of student-student interaction and results in various advantageous learning outcomes. To realise the benefits of peer learning, teachers must provide ‘intellectual scaffolding’. Richard Felder: Resources in Science and Engineering Education. Richard Felder's Home Page Richard M.
