Conscious competence learning model matrix- unconscious incompetence to unconscious competence

Conscious competence learning model matrix- unconscious incompetence to unconscious competence
conscious competence theory - summary outline The conscious competence theory and related matrix model explain the process and stages of learning a new skill (or behaviour, ability, technique, etc.) The concept is most commonly known as the 'conscious competence learning model', or 'conscious competence learning theory'; sometimes 'conscious competence ladder' or 'conscious competence matrix'. Other descriptions are used, including terminology relating to 'conscious skilled' and 'conscious unskilled' (which incidentally are preferred by Gordon Training). Occasionally in more recent adapted versions a fifth stage or level is added to the conscious competance theory, although there is no single definitive five-stage model, despite there being plenty of very useful and valid debate about what the fifth stage might be. learning and training in stages Put simply: Learners or trainees tend to begin at stage 1 - 'unconscious incompetence'. And ideally end at stage 4 - 'unconscious competence'. 1. Related:  Science

October | 2016 | Surplus Energy Economics One of the quirks of economics is that, within GDP (gross domestic product), all output is included, irrespective of what it really adds to prosperity. GDP, like Oscar Wilde’s cynic, knows “the price of everything, but the value of nothing”. If government paid 100,000 people to dig holes, and another 100,000 to fill them in, the cost of this activity would be included in GDP. Is there a better way of measuring prosperity? This is analogous to what has been happening to the economy. On the ground data bears this out. For the economy as a whole, it can be illustrated like this: Fig. 1: “Growth”? GDP is higher in the second picture, but far more is spent on energy and essentials, leaving a smaller surplus available for everything else. Where this leaves the economy is with two pictures that do not match – raw growth numbers imply a prosperity that people seem not to experience. This in turn accounts for the escalation in debt. The energy economy The cost equation Energy is never free. Notes:

School leadership School leadership is the process of enlisting and guiding the talents and energies of teachers, pupils, and parents toward achieving common educational aims. This term is often used synonymously with educational leadership in the United States and has supplanted educational management in the United Kingdom. Several universities in the United States offer graduate degrees in educational leadership.[1] History[edit] The term school leadership came into currency in the late 20th century for several reasons. Graduate studies[edit] The term "educational leadership" is also used to describe programs beyond schools. Some United States university graduate masters and doctoral programs are organized with higher education and adult education programs as a part of an educational leadership department. Literature, Research and Policy[edit] Several countries now have explicit policies on school leadership, including policies and budgets for the training and development of school leaders. Notes[edit]

Why Bats Are Insanely Attracted To Wind Turbines? Bat Kills at Wind Turbines Recent studies have reported large numbers of bats being killed at wind farms in many parts of North America and Europe. Project monitoring has also discovered significant bat mortality at the Mexico La Venta II wind farm. Bat kills at wind turbines were first discovered in Australia. Small numbers of bats were first recorded in the United States at wind power projects in California during bird monitoring. Some time ago, an estimated 1,400-4,000 bats were recorded as killed during 2008 at the Mountaineer Wind Energy Center in West Virginia . The frequency and number of bat kills at wind turbines are much greater than for any other type of human-built structure. Unlike birds, bats strike wind towers as well as telecommunications towers, buildings or power lines, but very infrequently. Bat Mortality from Collisions and Barotrauma Bats that fly too close to wind turbines are killed by either direct impact or from major air pressure changes around the spinning rotors.

LeaderTalk Blog Student Led Conferences (SLC's) might seem to be new but they've been around for awhile, at least 18 years - that's when I first encountered them as a newbie teacher. Since that beginning, I've had the professional pleasure of working with a number of school staffs and communities in adopting and growing SLC's. In my current position, this was our 3rd year with SLC's. Our school, a newly amalgamated K - 12 facility in a rural community, has an evening conference time and a morning conference when parents and their children can come to the school for the SLC. In my opinion, the best way to facilitate the SLC is to have them in the evenings/after school when both parents will be able to attend - as many families have both parents working. Contrary to what many people seem to believe, SLC's are much more time intensive and require a great deal of preparation on the part of the student and the teacher. SLC's need to be discussed beginning in September. {*style:<i><b> SLC's are not new.

Yuval Noah Harari on Why Technology Favors Tyranny Editor’s Note: This article is part of a series that attempts to answer the question: Is democracy dying? I. The Growing Fear of Irrelevance There is nothing inevitable about democracy. The emergence of liberal democracies is associated with ideals of liberty and equality that may seem self-evident and irreversible. In the second decade of the 21st century, liberalism has begun to lose credibility. Information technology is continuing to leap forward; biotechnology is beginning to provide a window into our inner lives—our emotions, thoughts, and choices. Ordinary people may not understand artificial intelligence and biotechnology in any detail, but they can sense that the future is passing them by. In 2018 the common person feels increasingly irrelevant. In the 20th century, the masses revolted against exploitation and sought to translate their vital role in the economy into political power.

7 Steps for Leading in 21st c. learning It’s awkward to write about leadership as a leader. I write this to share not my accomplishments but my strategy of the last 20 months leading my school, the success of which remains to be seen and is for others to evaluate. Soon I will be presenting, along with two Head of School colleagues and Ken Kay, founder and longtime President of the Partnership for 21st century skills and now of EdLeader21, on the topic of 21st Century Learning at NAIS Schools: Leading and Networking for Progress. As part of this session, each of us will speak of our vision of leadership for progress; in preparation, this preview. Leadership is, more than anything else, a project of managing change. A suggested Seven Steps for Leading in 21st century learning. 1. In this fast-changing era, our visions must be dynamic, adapting themselves to new tools and techniques, new information and understandings. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. To date, I have taken care not to direct how teaching must change in our classrooms. Like this:

Monsanto Guilty Verdict Is Only Beginning Monsanto Guilty Verdict Is Only Beginning Photo Credit: Waywuwei By F. William Engdahl15 August 2018 A jury trial in California has resulted in a guilty verdict against the agrichemical and GMO giant, Monsanto, now Bayer/Monsanto. The judge has ordered Monsanto to pay damages of USD 289 Million to former school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, who has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The Johnson trial, Dewayne Johnson v. Johnson, age 46, is a former pest control manager for a California county school system, where he applied Roundup and Monsanto’s Ranger Pro on school grounds across the county up to 30 times per year for more than two and a half years. According to the magazine Insurance Journal, the guilty verdict could influence the outcome of thousands of similar cases against Monsanto glyphosate-based Roundup.

Ten Big Ideas of School Leadership Middle school principal Mike McCarthy shares 30 years of wisdom on how to run a school well. Principal Mike McCarthy. Credit: Michael Warren During my senior year of college, I taught math to 26 inmates, none of whom had finished high school. 1) Your School Must Be For All Kids 100 Percent of the Time If you start making decisions based on avoiding conflict, the students lose. 2) Create a Vision, Write It Down, and Start Implementing It Don't put your vision in your drawer and hope for the best. 3) It's the People, Stupid The secret of managing is to keep the guys who hate you away from those who are still undecided. 4) Paddles in the Water In Outward Bound, you learn that when you are navigating dangerous rapids in a raft, the only way to succeed is for everyone in the boat to sit out on the edge and paddle really hard, even though everyone would rather be sitting in the center, where it's safer. 5) Find Time to Think During the Day They pay me to worry.

Anatomy of an AI System The Positive Classroom:What New (Young) Principals Need to Know The youth of the participants in our annual seminar for aspiring principals caught me by surprise. Most had been college students when the World Trade Center was attacked in 2001, and few understood schooling outside the aegis of No Child Left Behind. All were first-career teachers with just a few years of classroom experience. Some of the aspiring principals I met in that seminar have found jobs; this September, they will step into the shoes of retiring baby boomer principals. In anticipation of working with these new principals, I asked veteran principals, experienced teachers, and a few principals who had just finished their first year what essentials these young men and women should know as they enter their new role. Build Relationships Every respondent, without exception, recommended building relationships as the foundation for a successful principalship. Get to know everyone—from teachers, students, and parents, to bus drivers—on a first-name basis and personally, if possible.

In addition, of course, smaller Tesla howitzer systems for anti-tactical ballistic missile defense of tactical troops and installations could be constituted of more conventional field missile systems using paired or triplet radars, of conventional external appearance, in a scalar interferometer mode. With Moray generators as power sources and multiply deployed reentry vehicles with scalar antennas and transmitters, ICBM reentry systems now can become long range "blasters" of the target areas, from thousands of kilometers distance (figure 14). The potential peaceful implications of Tesla waves are also enormous. With two cerebral brain halves, the human being also has a Tesla scalar interferometer between his ears. Table 5. Figure 15.

How to write and evaluate effective questions: Best Practices in Peer Instruction One of the most frequently asked questions among Peer Instruction Network members (PINm) is “How do I write good questions?” This ubiquitous question is posed across the spectrum of Peer Instruction implementations – from expert to novice users, from faculty to instructional designers, among different disciplines, and within varying institutional types. PINms David Vakil an expert Peer Instruction user who teaches Astronomy at El Camino College asks, “How do you write good questions?” Matthew Kaplan who helps faculty implement Peer Instruction at the University of Michigan reports that a common question among faculty trying to use PI is: “How do you develop good questions?” When I tried Peer Instruction for the first time in my graduate seminar on educational theory, I had no existing questions to work from. Most of these questions were immediately effective in that I observed some learning gains right away with almost every question (pre-post vote). Still, tips are helpful. faq10

Zizek: There will be no return to normality after Covid. We are entering a post-human era & will have to invent a new way of life — RT Op-ed It’s time to accept that the pandemic has changed the way we exist forever. Now the human race has to embark on the profoundly difficult and painful process of deciding what form the ‘new normality’ is going to take. The world has lived with the pandemic for most of 2020, but what is our situation with regard to it now, in early December, in the middle of what the European media is terming ‘the second wave’? Firstly, we should not forget that the distinction between the first and second wave is centred on Europe: in Latin America the virus followed a different path. The peak was reached in between the two European waves, and now, as Europe suffers the second of these, the situation in Latin America has marginally improved. We should also bear in mind the variations in how the pandemic affects different classes (the poor have been hit more badly), different races (in the US, the blacks and Latinos suffer much more) and the different sexes. What we have discovered about the virus
