The Problem with Lecturing

The two of them were physics professors at Arizona State University. Hestenes was teaching mostly graduate students, but his colleague was teaching introductory physics, and the students in his classes were not doing well. Semester after semester, the class average on his exams never got above about 40 percent. Rethinking the Way College Students Are Taught. It's a typical scene: a few minutes before 11:00 on a Tuesday morning and about 200 sleepy-looking college students are taking their seats in a large lecture hall - chatting, laughing, calling out to each other across the aisles.

Will Dropouts Save America?

I TYPED these words on a computer designed by Apple, co-founded by the college dropout Steve Jobs. The program I used to write it was created by Microsoft, started by the college dropouts Bill Gates and Paul Allen. And as soon as it is published, I will share it with my friends via Twitter, co-founded by the college dropouts Jack Dorsey and Evan Williams and Biz Stone, and Facebook — invented, among others, by the college dropouts Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz, and nurtured by the degreeless Sean Parker.

Mythes et réalités de la génération Y. Il ne manque pas de billets et d’alerte pour nous dire tous les jours que les petits jeunes arrivent, pensent et font différemment, sont nativement digitaux, sinon ont muté du cerveau. Il est en tous les cas certain que toute marque ou organisation qui ne s’intéresserait pas à la première vraie génération digitalisée prend un risque de décalage inconsidéré d’avec ses publics. La Génération Y : des pilotes de course qui doivent passer leur permis. Que l’on se fie à une récente étude d’Accenture ou à tout ce qui peut se dire et s’écrire çà et là (liste trop longue pour être publiée ici), la génération des Millenials ou des Digital Natives va considérablement faire changer la manière dont on travaille en entreprise.

ORLANDO -- Say you are an employer evaluating college students for a job. Perusing one candidate’s Facebook profile, you notice the student belongs to a group called “I Pee My Pants When I’m Drunk.” What is your first thought?

The University of Wherever. Cern residency programme unites artists and physicists. Cern has launched a programme that aims to bring together artists and physicists at its laboratory near Geneva. Collide@Cern -- which falls into a wider Cern policy for engaging with the arts called Great Arts for Great Science -- is a three-month residency programme for artists to be mentored by leading scientists, supported by a stipend of €10,000. The head of Cern's arts programme, Ariane Koek, said: "The arts touch the parts that science alone cannot reach and vice versa.

Collide@Cern gives Cern, artists and scientists the opportunity to engage in creative collisions that can occur when these two areas of human creativity and ingenuity come together. " The first part of the scheme -- Prix Ars Electronica -- was launched in August at digital arts festival Ars Electronica. The chosen artist will spend two months at Cern and then one month at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, the festival's studio space. You can still apply for the residencies until 31 October.

This is chapter 6 of the "The Macroscope" by Joël de Rosnay Our education remains hopelessly analytical, centered on a few disciplines, like a puzzle whose pieces overlap rather than fit together.

It is an education that prepares us neither for the global approach to complex problems nor for the interplay between them. Nevertheless the present generation of eighteen- to twenty-five-year-olds itself poses problems globally. It seems that through a thousand parallel channels, passing from the traditional media to those of the counterculture by a sort of osmosis with nature and society, the young people have learned to discover for themselves a form of the systemic approach. Yet this emergent thought, this new manner of seeing and judging the world, is not the monopoly of one generation alone.
