Born to Learn ~ You are Born to Learn Seven Videos All Educators Should Watch Summer is a time when many of us are thinking about and planning professional development workshops for our schools and for other schools. I've always found that a short 3-5 minute video can be a good introduction to a PD sessions and or make for a nice thought-provoking break during a PD session. Here are seven videos that I think serve those purposes well. The "classic" of course is the various incarnations of Karl Fisch's and Scott McLeod's Did You Know? Version 4.0 is embedded below, but I still prefer this version. Educational Change Challenge is a video that I came across just last week on the first day of ISTE 2010. Here's another "classic" in the field. Social Media Revolution is a must-watch for all of those who think social media is nothing more than a time-sink. And when you're wondering what teachers make, Taylor Mali has some answers for you. Finally, on a lighter note for fans of The Office.

This term has been used by mathematicians, geometricians, spiritual seekers, anthropologists, and archaeologists to encompass the religious, philosophical, and spiritual beliefs that have sprung up around geometry in all the major cultures during the course of human history. Every thought or emotion we produce has a specific geometrical pattern. We are aware that while the planet is under going a shift to a higher frequency that, all who reside within her energy field will also experience this realignment. Many are experiencing naturally as the planet undergoes her transformation which is what is termed the 'Creation of the Lightbody'. Many of us are enthusiastic and joyous at these changes., I would like to cover practical things that we can consciously do to build and increase the Light quotient in our own bodies. The process of transition into Light is a gradual one. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

How To Mix Chalkboard Paint in Any Color We love using chalkboards as backdrops for displays and parties (like this one here!). So we were super excited to learn that you can create your own custom colors-and it's really easy! We first learned how from Martha Stewart whose tutorial you can read here.

love... la génération Y has been, la génération Z arrive… J’ai toujours plaint les personnes de la génération Y, ceux que l’on a surnommés à tort les digitals natives… Coincés entre les vieux à la culture Print et leurs petits frères et sœurs de la génération Z aussi appelée génération C (Communication, Collaboration, Connexion et Création), les 18-35 ans n’ont vraiment pas de chance ! Par contre, les suivants… C’est foutu pour la génération Y En effet, la génération Y est la génération perdue qui était nécessaire à l’épanouissement du web auquel nous aspirons pour certains, auquel inéluctablement nous nous dirigeons qu’on le veuille ou non. Ce n’est pas aujourd’hui que je fais cette remarque… Nous l’avions déjà évoqué avec d’autres spécialistes du Web 2 voici quelques années. En effet, leur premier problème est d’être des défricheurs… Personne avant eu n’avait la possibilité de communiquer de la manière que l’on connaît sur le net, d’avoir une vie sociale sur la toile… L’apprentissage a été rude. Autre souci rencontré : les vieux en face d’eux.

apprendre à apprendre L'essentiel à savoir pour réussir sans travailler plus mais mieux. "notre chance d’avenir repose sur ce qui fait notre risque présent : le retard de notre esprit par rapport à ses possibilités" Edgar Morin, dans La méthode, tome 3 : La connaissance de la connaissance Si la capacité à apprendre est innée, car dans la nature du cerveau, le "savoir apprendre", qui favorise la réussite et mène à une véritable autonomie, est une compétence complexe qui nécessite d'acquérir une méthodologie d'apprentissage, et d'accepter de modifier ses représentations sur l'apprentissage, et parfois même ses représentations de soi. Tout apprentissage est une transformation profonde, il faut changer pour apprendre et on change en apprenant. Insolite à l'université ? Non, si constatant l'importance de l'échec scolaire, et reconnaissant les limites de l'enseignement traditionnel de type transmissif, le système éducatif repense les notions d'enseignement-apprentissage pour offrir les meilleures chances à chacun.

Du Mariage Du Mariage le 13 Apr 2006Dans nos sociétés dominées par l'administration, la conception du mariage est très éloignée de celle qu'elle fut dans l'histoire humaine ancienne. "Boire, manger, coucher ensemble, c'est mariage ce me semble ", écrivait Antoine Loisel, jurisconsulte du XVIe siècle: la communauté de vie établissait le mariage mieux que n'importe quel document juridique. Mais l'histoire du mariage est avant tout celle de multiples combats. Ainsi, un peu partout dans le monde occidental, le front de la lutte se définit aujourd'hui autour du mariage homosexuel. Les lobbies organisés essayent d'arracher ces droits particuliers de la législation existante. PACS, union civile, union libre, les variantes de mariage sont déclinées à toutes les sauces - et chacun en veut sa part. Historiquement, il est impossible de savoir depuis quand existe la notion de mariage. Cependant, un nouvel assaillant se lança à la conquête de l'usage: l'Eglise catholique. Le mariage ne concerne pas l'Etat.
