movies you should watch before you die - a list by Chris1660 Planning ahead: what does the future hold for schools? | Teacher Network | Guardian Professional In June, the Guardian Teacher Network and Zurich Municipal are travelling to four locations across the country for a series of events exploring how school leaders can better plan and prepare for the future. To get the debate flowing in advance, and to give you a flavour of what to expect at the sessions, we asked our speakers: what does the future hold for schools and what can leaders do to prepare? Sir Tim Brighouse, former schools commissioner for London. Tim will be speaking at our events in Birmingham and Cheltenham One thing is certain now for school leaders over the next few years. There is going to be huge change imposed from central government and very probably a squeeze on resources while many parents and families will themselves find it difficult to give their children the love and support they need. And yet school leaders know their staff need a clear agreed vision and plan through these issues and those imposed by ever sharper accountability demands.

Can Schools Create a Culture of Learning By Doing? - Education What if we had a culture of "do" instead of a culture of "know" in our schools? That was the question posed by sixth-grade language arts teacher Bill Ferriter and three other educators at last weekend’s EduCon, an education innovation conference held in Philadelphia. Ferriter writes on his blog, The Tempered Radical, that the group came up with the question during a session designed to push educators to dream big and develop ambitious solutions for the problems facing schools. Although knowing academic content is foundational, he writes, students often complain about feeling disconnected from what they’re learning because they’re never given the chance to apply their knowledge in meaningful ways. Ferriter says his group realized they’d "have to work to take active steps to redefine almost everything about our schools," in order to create a culture of doing.

Un 2010 Macanudo « A CORAZÓN ABIERTO Si hay algo que puedo decir del 2010 que se acaba en unas horas es que la persona que era hace un año ya no existe. Es verdad, el tiempo, más que cíclico, es como un resorte: todos los años llegamos al mismo punto pero un poco más arriba; habiendo crecido un poco, aprendido un poco, madurado un poco, o al menos eso es lo deseable y esperable. Bueno, este año para mi fue un huracán!! Qué manera de pasar cosas y de cambiar!! Básicamente, paso a paso, esta es la crónica de los hechos revolucionarios que me transformaron: En enero me fui de viaje sola a Chiloé. Todo esto se completó en febrero, cuando me di cuenta que podía vivir sola perfectamente. En marzo parecía que todo volvía a los cauces normales; escuela, alumnos… pero no!! Y luego, en abril, se produjo el tercer hecho del podio de los sucesos que me cambiaron profundamente: mi calidad de vida mejoró notablemente cuando entré a aquella escuela que me permitió dejar mi escuela secundaria sin remordimientos. ¡Feliz año nuevo!

3 Things That Have Slowed the Change Process Down in Education (And What We Can Do About It) There has been a lot of talk on the idea that education as a whole takes a long time to change. As an educator, this is a challenging notion, since we are seeing many people doing some amazing things that did not exist when I was a student. Change is happening but sometimes it is hard to see when you are in the middle of the process. Some things are out of the hands of schools. Budgets and government decisions can make creating new and better learning environments for students tough, but not impossible. Here are some of the challenges we have had in the past and how we can tackle them 1. Education has traditionally been an isolating profession where we get some time together, but not nearly enough. How so many educators have shifted this “norm” is by using social media spaces to connect and learn from educators all over the world, and making a significant difference in their own classrooms, and creating much more engaging and empowering learning spaces. Make it go viral. 2. 3. Wow.

n las cuatro leyes de la The Characteristics Of A Good School The Characteristics Of A Good School by Terry Heick For professional development around this idea or others you read about on TeachThought, contact us. When a society changes, so then must its tools. Definitions of purpose and quality must also be revised continuously. This really starts at the human level, but that’s a broader issue. When technology changes, it impacts the kinds of things we want and need. When these “things” are forced in with little adjustment elsewhere, the authenticity of everything dies. The Purpose Of School In An Era Of Change What should schools teach, and how? How schools are designed and what students learn–and why–must be reviewed, scrutinized, and refined as closely and with as much enthusiasm as we do the gas mileage of our cars, the downloads speeds of our phones and tablets, or the operating systems of our watches. Why can’t education, as a system, refashion itself as aggressively as the digital technology that is causing it so much angst?

Motivos para Estudiar Medicina (Reasons to Study Medicine): ¿Por qué estudiar medicina? No hay un motivo exacto por el que estudiar Medicina, ahora mismo se me ocurren un sin fin de motivos. El primero, porque es la carrera más interesante que existe ya que estudiamos al ser humano, es decir, a ti mismo, parecerá una tontería pero todos los días cuando después de la siesta me dirigía a estudiar a mi cuarto siempre decía “voy a estudiarme”. El segundo motivo, porque es una de las profesiones más gratificantes que existen, ya que no hay mayor satisfacción que poder ayudar a los demás. El tercero, porque nunca dejas de aprender cosas nuevas y de sorprendente de lo maravilloso que puede ser nuestro cuerpo y nuestra mente.

18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently This list has been expanded into the new book, “Wired to Create: Unravelling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind,” by Carolyn Gregoire and Scott Barry Kaufman. Creativity works in mysterious and often paradoxical ways. Creative thinking is a stable, defining characteristic in some personalities, but it may also change based on situation and context. Inspiration and ideas often arise seemingly out of nowhere and then fail to show up when we most need them, and creative thinking requires complex cognition yet is completely distinct from the thinking process. Neuroscience paints a complicated picture of creativity. And psychologically speaking, creative personality types are difficult to pin down, largely because they’re complex, paradoxical and tend to avoid habit or routine. While there’s no “typical” creative type, there are some tell-tale characteristics and behaviors of highly creative people. They daydream. According to Kaufman and psychologist Rebecca L. They observe everything.
