comunidades de aprendizaje Using the Asset Inventory: A Process Learning Circle Approach This set of resources applies the Process Learning Circle (PrLCs) strategy to the task of interpreting and using the results from the NCLE Asset Inventory. By connecting PrLCs (process) to the data resulting from the Asset Inventory (content), we hope to support learning communities in developing the qualities of effective collaboration, as described in the Framework for Capacity Building (e.g., deprivatizing practice, shared agreements, collaborative culture, inquiry stance, using evidence, and systemic support). This strategy can be used with many sizes of groups (i.e., grade level/department team, staff). For large groups, we suggest dividing into groups of 5-6 people. PrLCs are a way to build and sustain powerful learning communities. Created by Geoffrey and Renate Caine, they are grounded on the Caines's 12 brain/mind learning principles and support the natural way that people learn. PrLCs are a learning process contained in a flexible four-phase structure. Preparation:
Dr. Joolz: Snapshotz en la vida: hacer realidad la Alfabetización As it happens that is the title of an excellent book as well as the focus of this post. My husband received these sweets as a free gift through the post from Sky tv ... don't know why. But the sweets are an interesting textual artifact.. From the wrapper with the brand name, the name of the company and the registered trademark sign, down to the text on the sweets, they are a very multi-layered item, conveyng a whole range of messages in different ways. The small print on the back details (in more than one language) the ingredients and the sell-by-date. I have had to learn to take my glasses shopping with me so that I can read labels carefully in order to avoid poisoning my son with nuts - or he will have an anaphyalctic attack. There is also the barcode, which is only of interest to supermarket assistants who have to scan the packets with a special laser thingy. Finally I want to show you this:

visualización, cartografía mental How to Give a Killer Presentation A little more than a year ago, on a trip to Nairobi, Kenya, some colleagues and I met a 12-year-old Masai boy named Richard Turere, who told us a fascinating story. His family raises livestock on the edge of a vast national park, and one of the biggest challenges is protecting the animals from lions—especially at night. Richard had noticed that placing lamps in a field didn’t deter lion attacks, but when he walked the field with a torch, the lions stayed away. From a young age, he’d been interested in electronics, teaching himself by, for example, taking apart his parents’ radio. He used that experience to devise a system of lights that would turn on and off in sequence—using solar panels, a car battery, and a motorcycle indicator box—and thereby create a sense of movement that he hoped would scare off the lions. The story was inspiring and worthy of the broader audience that our TED conference could offer, but on the surface, Richard seemed an unlikely candidate to give a TED Talk.
Educación remix: Nuevos medios, alfabetizaciones, y las geografías emergentes digitales - Digital Cultura y Educación Abstract This article explores instances of youth educating themselves beyond the boundaries of school through engagement with and production of “digital geographies,” or the emerging landscapes that are being produced through the confluence of new communicative practices and available media and technologies. A framework of digital geographies, which is grounded in theories of spatiality, literacies, and multimodality, is used to analyze the social media practices and multimedia artifacts produced by two court-involved youth, who are part of an ongoing, multi-year ethnography of an alternative to incarceration program. Attention to digital geographies, and attendant communicative practices, can yield important insights about education beyond the school walls.
