Subverting the System: Student and Teacher as Equals By Luba Vangelova Every day, veteran educator Scott Henstrand walks into his history classroom at the Brooklyn Collaborative Studies secondary school, jots down a few conversation-starters on the blackboard, then takes a seat amongst the 14- to 17-year-olds. He does the same work as they do, and raises his hand when he wants to speak. For most of his 20-year career, Henstrand played the more familiar role of a teacher as the manager of a classroom. The shift to this new structure was gradual and grew out of his observation that all of his students shared some fundamental needs, regardless of age: “They all wanted to feel in charge of their lives, and to feel that what they were doing has meaning,” he says. He was grateful to eventually land at his current school, which uses expeditionary learning and performance-based assessments in lieu of graduation exams. “It really comes down to what you trust: Do you trust the process, and do you trust the students?” Related

Walter Mondale In 1976 Carter, the Democratic presidential nominee, chose Mondale as his vice presidential running mate in the forthcoming election. The Carter/Mondale ticket defeated incumbent president Gerald Ford and his Vice Presidential running mate, Bob Dole. Carter and Mondale's time in office was marred by a worsening economy, and although both were renominated by the Democratic Party, they lost the 1980 election to Republicans Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. After the election, Mondale joined the Minnesota-based law firm of Dorsey & Whitney and the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (1986–93), and was credited with successes in Poland and Hungary.

join the open source project | Utilización de las redes sociales en educación Juan José Pérez Tejedor. Curso Twitter en Educación. La verdad es que la utilización de las redes sociales en la educación abre un camino nuevo en la enseñanza, puesto que se han convertido en una nueva manera de enseñar y de aprender. Pero no sólo de la educación, sino dentro de todo el contexto educativo e incluso de nuestras vidas. Tuenti, Twitter, Linkedin, Google +, Edmodo, etc. son nombres que de ahora en adelante vamos a oír y en algunos casos manejar a menudo. Los profesores tenemos que darnos cuenta que el sistema ha cambiado, ya no somos nosotros, el libro y los alumnos, ahora hay un elemento más el exterior a nuestra aula. Todos tenemos un acceso inmediato e ilimitado a la información, y también tenemos un nuevo modo de comunicarnos, las redes sociales, tenemos Internet Pero claro esto plantea un problema, que abrimos nuestra “casa” al resto del mundo.

As well as receiving gold and platinum awards from many nations, Parsons has received ten Grammy Award nominations for engineering and production. Since 1999 he has toured under a revised name, The Alan Parsons Live Project (with Woolfson’s permission). Personal life[edit] Discography[edit]

The 2013 Campus Computing Survey | The Campus Computing Project PRESS COVERAGE -- Inside Higher Education -- Chronicle of Higher Education -- Edsurge The 2013 National Survey of Computing and Information Technology Campus IT Officers Affirm the Instructional Integration of IT as Their Top Priority, Offer Mixed Reviews on IT Effectiveness and Outsourcing for Online Education New data from fall 2013 Campus Computing Survey reveal that CIOs and senior campus IT officers view instructional support and IT service issues as their top technology priorities over the next two-three years. The survey participants also offer a mixed view about the effectiveness of campus IT investments. Campus IT Priorities Four-fifths (79 percent) of the CIOs and senior campus IT officers who participated in the fall 2013 survey report that “assisting faculty with the instructional integration of information technology” is a very important institutional IT priority over the next two-three years. What explains these gains in going mobile?

La construcción colaborativa de proyectos como metodología para adquirir competencias digitales. Comunicar, 42, 15-24. (DOI: 10.3916/C42-2014-01). Actualmente presenciamos una etapa de importantes cambios como consecuencia de la emergencia de las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación (TIC). Entre éstas, las vinculadas a las TIC y los procesos de colaboración se consideran claves. Para ello, se aborda el planteamiento metodológico de la asignatura «Competencias TIC» de la Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, la cual se desarrolla a través de un proyecto colaborativo en red organizado en cuatro fases: inicio, estructuración, desarrollo y conclusión y cierre. Mediante una investigación evaluativa se triangulan datos de naturaleza cuantitativa y cualitativa provenientes de un cuestionario. Abstract Descriptores Keywords Acceder 2 de enero de 2014

Historypin | Home The Alan Parsons Project The Alan Parsons Project was a British progressive rock band, active between 1975 and 1990,[1] consisting of Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons surrounded by a varying number of session musicians and some relatively consistent band members such as guitarist Ian Bairnson. Behind the revolving line-up and the regular sidemen, the true core of the Project was the duo of Parsons and Woolfson. Woolfson was a songwriter by profession, but also a composer and pianist. Parsons was a successful producer and accomplished engineer. Almost all songs on the band's albums are credited to "Woolfson/Parsons". History[edit] Alan Parsons met Eric Woolfson in the canteen of Abbey Road Studios in the summer of 1974. Although the studio version of Freudiana was produced by Parsons (and featured the regular Project backing musicians, making it an 'unofficial' Project album), it was primarily Woolfson's idea to turn it into a musical.

Guías Didácticas para trabajar las Inteligencias Múltiples (Descarga) | Noticias AZ La teoría de las inteligencias múltiples sostiene que no existe una inteligencia única en el ser humano, sino una diversidad de inteligencias que trabajan juntas, aunque como entidades semiautónomas que marcan las potencialidades y acentos significativos de cada individuo en toda una serie de escenarios de expansión de la inteligencia. Howard Gardner es un psicólogo, investigador y profesor de la Universidad de Harvard, conocido en el ámbito científico por sus investigaciones en el análisis de las capacidades cognitivas y por haber formulado la teoría de las inteligencias múltiples, la cual contraviene décadas de prácticas pedagógicas dado que la realidad es que, en la gran mayoría de las escuelas, se adaptan y desarrollan currículos uniformes en los que los alumnos han de estudiar las mismas asignaturas presentadas de idéntica forma.
