Things You Really Need to Learn

Things You Really Need to Learn
Guy Kawasaki last week wrote an item describing 'ten things you should learn this school year' in which readers were advised to learn how to write five sentence emails, create powerpoint slides, and survive boring meetings. It was, to my view, advice on how to be a business toady. My view is that people are worth more than that, that pleasing your boss should be the least of your concerns, and that genuine learning means something more than how to succeed in a business environment. But what should you learn? Your school will try to teach you facts, which you'll need to pass the test but which are otherwise useless. Here, then, is my list. 1. The most common utterance at the scene of a disaster is, "I never thought..." The prediction of consequences is part science, part mathematics, and part visualization. The danger in such situations is focusing on what you want to happen rather than what might happen instead. This is where the math and science come in. People don't think ahead. 2.

Esther's Web Log Warning: contains spoilers for the plot of both the book and the movie. I have finally gotten around to reading the copy of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil that a friend lent me in 1997 just after we watched the film together (thanks Helen). The book is wonderful. For me it was an 8 hour book (a nerdy thing I do is work out how long a book is going to take to read by timing how long it takes to read the first couple of pages and then doing the math to work out approximately how long the whole book will take), and I whizzed though it in about 5 days (this indicates that I stayed up beyond my bedtime several of those 5 nights to keep reading). The book gently weaves the author John Berendt’s observations of the people he meets in the US city of Savannah, their stories, their biases, their gossip, around the major story, the murder of a young man by an older and very important member of Savannah society. I would like to ask John Berendt:

Without Infrastructure, the Digital Classroom Is Just a Dream [#Infographic] To say that technology is an important topic in higher education is an understatement. Technology is a broad subject, with different implications for students, professors, administrators and IT teams. Educators like to discuss the bells and whistles of classroom technology — tablets, digital textbooks, gamification and student response systems. But without the vital infrastructure, such as servers, access points and bandwidth, classroom technology would lack the components necessary for successful implementation. And don’t forget about policy. Technology is complicated, so educators need to be flexible as they tackle new initiatives and draft new policies. Educators must be prepared to both understand and use classroom technologies to the fullest. Read more on The infographic below highlights some of the areas of technology that educators should examine before moving part or all of their curriculums to a digital platform.

The suggestion is that online learners are changing the way colleges and universities function. This all too common assertion misses the key point: all learners today are online learners to some degree. The real issue is how developments in technology are enabling changes in pedagogy, which in turn may affect the way in which colleges and universities operate. There are five changes occurring in pedagogy as a result of the prevalence of technology that are having a significant impact on post-secondary education. Whether it’s through digital textbooks, search engines, Wikipedia or online learning objects, teachers and students have significant access to knowledge in a way that is new in this century. It used to be that learners worked in largely isolated ways, gathering only for class and coffee (or something stronger).

eezblog: art Seven Habits of the Professor of the Future Faculty at colleges and universities across Ontario today are busy. They spend their days juggling lectures, student and faculty meetings,grading, and research in an attempt to provide students with the most broad and up-to-date education possible while at the same time furthering the research in their chosen field. Will it always be this way? What will a professor at a college or university be doing in 2020 and how might we understand the changed nature of their work as an opportunity? The answer to this question begins with the idea of the typical work week for the professor of the future – what will occupy his or her time? The future is not a straight line from the past. (All examples below are fictional, but based on real and emerging technologies now available).

Marcus Hicks' Web Log The truth about Israel pt. 1 Well, I feel certain that what I am about to say will earn me the label ‘Anti-Semite’ by the Jewish Lobby and their fan-club (if I was Jewish, then I would be labelled as a ’self-hating Jew’ ) Much has been made-in light of recent events-about how Israel is an ‘innocent nation’ simply ‘defending itself’ from foes who want to destroy it. Though I agree that their are organisations which want the destruction of Israel (a totally unrealistic attitude which I utterly condemn, btw) these statements are highly simplistic. The truth is that the 1st Century Diaspora left the nation of Judea with only a very small Jewish population (less than 10%). For those who want to know about the IR reforms Pt.2 OK, so I have pointed out how IR reforms won’t be good for us, but how will they be BAD for us? For those who want to know about the IR reforms Hiya guys. Marcus. Howard Sucks Pretty much says it all, doesn’t it? Yours, Marcus. Hi

José Joaquín Brunner » Educación superior en modalidad digital California quiere que los campus públicos convaliden cursos hechos por Internet Unos especialistas ven el inicio de una educación más democrática Otros temen que sea una salida fácil a la falta de recursos y que se ponga en peligro la calidad El entusiasmo por el poder transformador de la educación online goza estos días de un nuevo impulso gracias a un proyecto de ley en California (EE UU) con el que se obligará a las universidades a convalidar cursos hechos fuera de sus campus a través de Internet; unos cursos a los que previamente el Estado le haya puesto un sello de control y calidad. Pero entre las promesas de un vuelco hacia una Universidad más accesible y más democrática que le permitiría seguir creciendo en un momento en el que se le saltan las costuras en su formato tradicional, también se escuchan temores de que se trate de un mero parcheo a los recortes que puede ir en detrimento de la calidad y abrir las puertas a negocios privados sin vocación de servicio público.
