Proposal for MIT Global Environment Initiative seeks public comment As the world’s population continues to expand, our natural resources will become increasingly strained. In an effort to find sustainable solutions for the planet’s growing population while minimizing environmental impacts, MIT’s Environmental Research Council (ERC) has put forward a detailed implementation plan to establish a Global Environmental Initiative to complement the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI). The interdisciplinary, faculty-led council presented the plan to the MIT community last Thursday in a forum held at the Kirsch Auditorium in the Stata Center. Council members outlined an initiative that would bring together MIT’s “core strengths” across campus to help solve the world’s pressing environmental challenges, from mitigating climate change to curbing contamination and maintaining fresh water supplies. In the areas of climate and oceans, MIT already has a strong foundation of interdisciplinary collaboration.

Universal Decimal Classification (UDC) The Universal Decimal Classification (UDC) is an international scheme which endeavours to cover all areas of knowledge. The OER mix in higher education: purpose, process, product, and policy - Distance Education - Volume 33, Issue 2 Success in open educational resources (OER) has been reported by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the USA and the Open University in the UK, among others. It is unclear, however, how valuable OER are in learning and teaching. Approaches to OER policy and sustainability are just two other key aspects that remain unresolved across the sector.
Why Connected Learning? - Connected Learning Alliance Connected learning is when someone is pursuing a personal interest with the support of peers, mentors and caring adults, and in ways that open up opportunities for them. It is a fundamentally different mode of learning than education centered on fixed subjects, one-to-many instruction, and standardized testing. The research is clear. Young people learn best when actively engaged, creating, and solving problems they care about, and supported by peers who appreciate and recognize their accomplishments. Sustainable Development – Earth Charter Initiative Principle 14 of the Earth Charter emphasizes the importance of “Integrating into…education and life-long learning the knowledge, values, and skills needed for a sustainable way of life”. Education is fundamental to the mission of Earth Charter Initiative. ECI has therefore created the Earth Charter Center for Education for Sustainable Development at the University for Peace in Costa Rica. The Center deepens students’ and program participants’ understanding of sustainability vision and practice, and build the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values they need to shape a sustainable future.

I Wrote a Book—To Teach the Wolfram Language—Stephen Wolfram Blog An Elementary Introduction to the Wolfram Language is available in print, free on the web, etc. I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to write another book. My last book—A New Kind of Science—took me more than a decade of intensely focused work, and is the largest personal project I’ve ever done.
Oxford Centre for Staff and Learning Development » Second edition of Rethinking Pedagogy Today there is cause for a small celebration, as I handed over the manuscript for the second edition of Rethinking Pedagogy for a Digital Age (which is just as well as I see it’s already available on Amazon!). I’m grateful to all the authors who have engaged not just with revisiting and rewriting their chapters, but also with our peer review and collaborative writing processes over the past nine months or so. As before, Rethinking Pedagogy isn’t a ‘how to’ guide, it’s a critical discussion of the issues surrounding the design, sharing and reuse of learning activities. We do however offer tools that you might use, or encourage others to use. Our aim is to bring the insights of learning design into the educational process, and to extend the repertoire of tools and techniques in everyday use.
Open Learning, Open Networks - Online Learning in 2020 Hello. Hello everyone pleasure to be here today. This presentation will be in English. I'm going to be talking about open learning open networks and open learning. Just a few just a few notes to begin our presentation. The Zapatistas' first school opens for session Yesterday, 1,700 students from around the world enrolled in the first Zapatistas school, held at the University of the People’s Land of Chiapas. (WNV/Moysés Zúñiga Santiago) Last December, tens of thousands of indigenous Zapatistas mobilized, peacefully and in complete silence, to occupy five municipal government office buildings in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. That same day, which coincided with the end of one cycle on the Maya calendar, Zapatistas released a communiqué, asking, “Did you hear it?” It appears that the answer was yes, because this week thousands of people from around the world are descending on Chiapas for the Zapatistas’ first organizing school, called la escuelita de libertad, which means the little school of liberty. Originally the group allotted for only 500 students.
How parents set their kids up for success AngryJulieMonday/flickr "If kids aren't doing the dishes, it means someone else is doing that for them," Julie Lythcott-Haims, former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford University and author of "How to Raise an Adult" said during a TED Talks Live event. "And so they're absolved of not only the work, but of learning that work has to be done and that each one of us must contribute for the betterment of the whole," she said. Lythcott-Haims believes kids raised on chores go on to become employees who collaborate well with their coworkers, are more empathetic because they know firsthand what struggling looks like, and are able to take on tasks independently.
