Biblioteca online completa sobre permacultura, bioconstrucción, agricultura ecológica y más Apreciados lectores, Parece un contrasentido, crear un método en la Apicultura del “no hacer” (Wu Wei, como lo denominó su creador), cuando precisamente esta “cultura” estudia a las abejas, que conforman uno de los modelos asociativos más complejos, organizadas y trabajadoras que se conocen de los seres vivos. Sin embargo, si juntamos las técnicas… En "CSA ENTRANSICIÓN 2.0" Qué es la permacultura y cómo podemos aplicarla La permacultura es una respuesta que entrega herramientas factibles a nivel individual y colectivo, a la inquietud interna de cada ser humano, por querer conectarnos con la tierra. En "Permacultura"

MOOC: os cursos gratuitos online que democratizam o ensino As aulas são gratuitas, a matéria é dividida em módulos e a avaliação é feita através de tarefas e testes de escolha múltipla. Vídeos de palestras e textos recomendados são os materiais predominantes e os formadores estão, por norma, ligados a instituições de ensino superior. Aqui, tudo é assíncrono: os MOOC (Massive Online Open Courses) podem ser frequentados quando o aluno quiser, sem hora ou local marcado, e todas as ferramentas de estudo se mantêm disponíveis durante o período lectivo — que, normalmente, se mede em algumas semanas. O primeiro MOOC foi criado em 2008, por George Siemens e Stephen Downes, na Universidade de Manitoba, no Canadá. “Os MOOC configuram uma mudança de poder e uma reorganização das relações de aprendizagem”, explicou George Siemens ao “Diário de Notícias”, num artigo de Janeiro de 2014. Democratização do conhecimento Ao contrário do que é incentivado, não é muito interventiva nos fóruns de discussão. Mas esse não foi o primeiro que tentou frequentar.

Mathematics How to spot the children most likely to become entrepreneurs Researchers also concluded that "rule-breaking and defiance of parental authority" was the best predictor of which students ended up making higher incomes. They admitted that this was a "surprising finding" and said that there were reasons to be cautious of it. But they did float a few theories on why this might be the case. "We might assume that students who scored high on this scale might earn a higher income because they are more willing to be more demanding during critical junctures such as when negotiating salaries or raises," they wrote. Read: Five character traits every entrepreneur should avoid Lauren Knight commented on the study in her ‘On Parenting’ column in the Washington Post: "Some rather intelligent children who defy authority or challenge the status quo tend to think more outside the box, lending them a certain creative upper hand when it comes to new ideas and starting businesses.

Learning Soft Skills In Childhood Can Prevent Harder Problems Later Bjorn Rune Lie/Getty Images/Ikon Images Academic learning is usually in the spotlight at school, but teaching elementary-age students "soft" skills like self-control and social skills might help in keeping at-risk kids out of criminal trouble in the future, a study finds. Duke University researchers looked at a program called Fast Track, which was started in the early 1990s for children who were identified by their teachers and parents to be at high risk for developing aggressive behavioral problems. The students were randomized into two groups; half took part in the intervention, which included a teacher-led curriculum, parent training groups, academic tutoring and lessons in self-control and social skills. In the latest study, researchers looked at the "why" behind those earlier findings. The academic skills that were taught as part of Fast Track turned out to have less of an impact on crime and delinquency rates than soft skills, which are associated with emotional intelligence.

Vent Homepage - Vent Free Technology for Teachers Diretora do MIT despede-se para iniciar uma universidade sem salas de aula. Christine Ortiz, professora e diretora dos cursos de pós-graduação do MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) decidiu deixar esta famosa escola para iniciar um projeto ousado a partir do segundo semestre de 2016: Inaugurar uma nova universidade que questione os padrões universitários modernos, criando novas formas de interação e construção de conhecimento.

A notícia tem sido debatida nos corredores de muitas universidades pelo mundo. “Basicamente, a ideia é que estejamos centrados na aprendizagem baseada em projetos, onde os alunos possam se envolver em projetos relevantes, de longo prazo e integrados entre si. O conceito não é novo e tem sido proposto há anos por pessoas como o empresário brasileiro Ricardo Semler, quem foi palestrante no próprio MIT e fundou as escolas Lumiar.

A Group of American Teens Are Excelling at Advanced Math On a sultry evening last July, a tall, soft-spoken 17-year-old named David Stoner and nearly 600 other math whizzes from all over the world sat huddled in small groups around wicker bistro tables, talking in low voices and obsessively refreshing the browsers on their laptops. The air in the cavernous lobby of the Lotus Hotel Pang Suan Kaew in Chiang Mai, Thailand, was humid, recalls Stoner, whose light South Carolina accent warms his carefully chosen words. The tension in the room made it seem especially heavy, like the atmosphere at a high-stakes poker tournament. Stoner and five teammates were representing the United States in the 56th International Mathematical Olympiad. They figured they’d done pretty well over the two days of competition. God knows, they’d trained hard. Still, it was hard to know how his team had stacked up against those from the perennial powers China, Russia, and South Korea. It also wasn’t an aberration. The change is palpable at the most competitive colleges.
