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. 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.

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.

Choice Point: Align Your Purpose - A Documentary Film by Harry Massey

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.

Deep and Surface learning

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. There is a third form, known as the “Achieving” or strategic approach, which can be summarised as a very well-organised form of Surface approach, and in which the motivation is to get good marks.

The exercise of learning is construed as a game, so that acquisition of technique improves performance. Framework for action on interprofessional education and collaborative practice. 121147e.pdf (application/pdf Object) Education. Emotional Intelligence. 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.

Emotional Intelligence

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. But here, suddenly, was a new way of thinking about the ingredients of life success. I was electrified by the notion, which I made the title of this book in 1995. I remember having the thought, just before this book was published ten years ago, that if one day I overheard a conversation in which two strangers used the phrase emotional intelligence and both understood what it meant, I would have succeeded in spreading the concept more widely into the culture.

» 9 Essential Skills Kids Should Learn

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. 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.

Successful Learning: Peer Learning

‘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’. Thus, teachers prime students by selecting discussion topics that all students are likely to have some relevant knowledge of; they also raise questions/issues that prompt students towards more sophisticated levels of thinking.
