A Crash Course on Creativity

With the power to cross borders and languages, music serves as a compelling tool for unlocking creative potential. Creativity: Music to My Ears is a six week course designed to explore several factors that stimulate creativity in individuals, teams, and organizations. In each session we will focus on a different variable related to creativity, such as reframing problems, connecting and combining ideas, and challenging assumptions. All of the projects in this experiential course will deal with some aspect of music, including listening, creating, and sharing. No musical talent is required - just an interest in exploring the role that music plays in our lives. To deepen your understanding of music, throughout the course we will include video clips from experts in the music industry, including world-renowned Warner Music recording artists, Stanford music scholars, and industry executives who work to bring new and innovative musical expression to a global audience. « Less

Da, despre excepţii am spus încă de la început că e vorba aici. Despre focus pe calitate, şi pe înţelegerea materiei de către elev. Reciteşte subiectul şi comentează on-topic. Ai arii speciale pentru trolling, ai poiana, ai aria fun, poţi să te duci să te descarci acolo. Aici e un topic constructiv şi doar constructiv. dgamma, pe 14th April 2012, 10:51, a scris: Eu-s la facultate si invat de pe youtube si cursurile gratuite MIT . Mulţumim, adăugat. Chiar dacă nu e un profesor sau un alt sistem care să îţi corecteze soluţiile acolo, ai "Exams and solutions" pe la multe cursuri, deci se încadrează în ceva ce am putea numi "şcoală".

Designing a New Learning Environment What constitutes learning in the 21st century? Should reading, watching, memorizing facts, and then taking exams be the only way to learn? Or could technology (used effectively) make learning more interactive, collaborative, and constructive? Could learning be more engaging and fun? We construct, access, visualize, and share information and knowledge in very different ways than we did decades ago. The ultimate goal of this project-based course is to promote systematic design thinking that will cause a paradigm shift in the learning environments of today and tomorrow. After the completion of this course, students will be able to: As a Final Team Project, students will design a new learning model catering to 21st century environments and learners. Additional consideration will be given to teams that come up with system feature ideas presenting meaningful learning interaction and performance analytics.

MOOCen wider willen | das e-Teaching Büro So hatte ich mir das eigentlich vorgestellt mit dem MMC13 für mich: Nicht schauen, nichts sagen, nichts hören… Dörte Giebel und Monika König, die ich aus/seit dem OPCO11 “kenne”, haben mIch gefragt, ob ich einen Impulsbeitrag schreiben würde. Ich habe mich über die Anfrage sehr gefreut, hatte gleich die Gegenüberstelltung im Kopf, die es dann ja auch geworden ist, große Lust, sie zu formulieren – und hatte ansonsten nicht vor, mich mit diesem MOOC viel zu beschäftigen. Denn: Die Don#t MOOC-Seite des Impulsbeitrags kommt ja nicht von nichts… Und: Ich kann nicht. I have work to do! Und jetzt? Ich schüttel gleichzeitig den Kopf und frag mich, wie man Zeit und Nerven dafür finden kann, all sowas zu tun, ob das inhaltlich getrieben ist oder legitmiertes Spieltrieb-Ausleben. Aber eigentlich ist das alles irrelevant, denn ich habe gar keine Wahl: Sobald ich persönlich angesprochen werde in so einem MOOC, kann ich nicht mehr nicht MOOCen. Schnapp: Community-Falle. Nützt nichts. Euch grüßt, Jasmin

Războiul împotriva conştiinţei „Am fost supuşi unei intense programări – care a fost denumită ‚războiul împotriva drogurilor’ – în ultimii 40 de ani, destinată creării artificiale a unui inamic intern în societăţile noastre şi convingerii omenirii că există aceste grupări rele, nelegiuite, care nu se ocupă decât cu aceste lucruri teribile şi păcătoase, fumând tot felul de droguri şi făcând una sau alta. A fost creată o imagine foarte întunecată, în jurul acestui subiect şi oamenii devin foarte iraţionali când este abordată această problemă. Şi, de fapt, ceea ce s-a uitat, în toate acestea, este realitatea că statul ne trimite la închisoare pentru ceea ce este, în esenţă, explorarea propriei conştiinţe. Este un abuz grotesc la adresa drepturilor umane. Este fundamental eronat dacă eu, ca adult, nu deţin suveranitatea asupra propriei mele conştiinţe şi, atunci, nu o deţin asupra nimic altceva. Graham Hancock (Joe Rogan Podcast - 142, 25 septembrie 2011) În articolul citat, Graham Hancock afirma, printre altele: 1. 2. 3.

Der cMOOC als Blog(ger)-Netzwerk? THESE: Ein cMOOC ist nichts anderes als ein Blog(ger)-Netzwerk, das sich zu einer riesengroßen sich weit verzweigenden Blogparade zusammenfindet. Wer (noch) nicht bloggt oder nicht weiß, wie man schnell ein eigenes Blog aufsetzt, findet schwerer Zugang zur Lern Community eines cMOOCs. Bloggen gehört folglich zur grundlegenden Medienkompetenz und damit quasi zur Teilnahmevoraussetzung in einem cMOOC. Just heute schrieb Sue Waters ihren sehr eingängigen und verständlichen Blog Post "Learning through blogging as part of a connectivist MOOC" und hat damit meinen Nerv getroffen. Was mich ausgehend von so manchem heutigem Tweet im Kontext des #MMC13 besonders beschäftigt: Ist ein konnektivistischer MOOC à la Downes/Siemens nicht "vom Herzen" her ein Blog(ger)-Netzwerk? Nun ist Stephen Downes ein Blogger-Urgestein, entsprechend organisiert er seine Forschungsarbeit, seine Publikationen und auch sein Netzwerk. Was macht Stephen hier?

Home | Foldit Begrifflichkeit Starten wir ganz grundsätzlich: Was sind eigentlich MOOCs? (Ich nehme an, alle die im MOOC13 mitmachen, haben schon eine ganz bestimmte Vorstellung von MOOCs, aber als ich in die MOOC Welt tiefer eintauchte, fiel mir dann doch auf wie viel Unterschiede es zwischen den einzelnen MOOC Ausprägungen gibt, daher lohnt sich die Blick auf die Basics) MOOC steht bekanntlich für Massive Open Online Course. …schauen wir uns die Begriffsteile doch einmal einzeln an: [Massiv] [Open] [Online] [Course] Gefällt mir: Gefällt mir Lade...

Help Exchange: free volunteer work exchange abroad Australia New Zealand Canada Europe MOOC to POOC: Moving from Massive to Participatory JustPublics@365 wants to reimagine higher education. One of the ways we’re doing that is by re-thinking the graduate seminar and rethinking online education. Recently, Thomas Friedman in an op-ed for The New York Times proclaimed “nothing has more potential to enable us to reimagine higher education than the massive open online course, or MOOC”. The New York Times dubbed 2012 “the year of the MOOC.” Chiefly, the MOOC-model misunderstands how learning works. The way Friedman, among others, talks about MOOCs is that they are a way to educate lots of people from a distance for “relatively little money.” Many are similarly jumping to support MOOCs as a money making venture, ignoring the actual purpose of education to envision new business models. We have a different idea. (CC Image from Flickr) The course grew out of a discussion about interdisciplinarity at the Graduate Center among colleagues in the Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC).

WiFli | Accesso universale all'informazione e alla conoscenza, per ogni persona sul pianeta Stiamo per finire le 10 settimane del programma Graduate Study qui a SingularityUniversity, NASA Ames. 80 studenti provenienti da 40 paesi diversi per influenzare positivamente le persone + 1 miliardo nei prossimi dieci anni. Durante questo periodo, abbiamo studiato i molti problemi della società, discusso, studiato, costruito e lavorato in squadre.Ieri sera abbiamo presentato i 22 progetti delle nostre squadre al Computer History Museum a Mountain View, di fronte a un grosso numero di partecipanti, visionari, inventori, imprenditori e filantropi che vogliono fare il cambiamento. Sappiamo che ci sono molti problemi di accesso ad acqua pulita, cibo, energia a basso costo, ma ci rendiamo conto che l'accesso alle informazioni può consentire la soluzione a tutti i problemi che dobbiamo affrontare come specie. Preferiamo insegnare alla gente come costruire una canna da pesca, invece di nutrirli pescando per loro. Ti va di partecipare?
