July 14, 2012 by NovaNews Oh how I love my new style of learning. It is totally AWESOME!! Unable to attend a great conference at State Library of Victoria today where Alec Couros was leading a discussion on Personal Learning Networks, I jumped online Saturday evening, a few hours after the close of proceedings, and avidly read through the TweetDoc which was posted soon after the end of the event.

Other skills must be honed, too, not the least of which is how to get along with their peers and work well with others. This is not something that can be cultivated through rote memorization or with strategically placed posters. Students must be engaged and cooperation must be practiced, and often. The following team-building games can promote cooperation and communication, help establish a positive classroom environment and — most importantly — provide a fun, much-needed reprieve from routine.
Classroom Activity: Snack Tectonics Make the model Give each student about a square foot of wax paper and a large dollop of frosting. Instruct students to spread frosting into a layer about half a cm thick. Tell students that the frosting in this model represents the asthenosphere, the viscous layer on which Earth's plates ride.

They have more selves. According to a recent European study, in fact, Millennials have a “multifaceted sense of their own identity.” “They change completely their attitude during the day, during the night, during the weekend,” says Alessandro Bigi, one of the coauthors of the study. “It is not like my generation, where I have my professor work and then I go home and have my professor life.”
