Jacques Derrida Jacques Derrida (/ʒɑːk ˈdɛrɨdə/; French: [ʒak dɛʁida]; born Jackie Élie Derrida;[1] July 15, 1930 – October 9, 2004) was a French philosopher, born in French Algeria. Derrida is best known for developing a form of semiotic analysis known as deconstruction. He is one of the major figures associated with post-structuralism and postmodern philosophy.[3][4][5] During his career Derrida published more than 40 books, together with hundreds of essays and public presentations. He had a significant influence upon the humanities and social sciences, including—in addition to philosophy and literature—law[6][7][8] anthropology,[9] historiography,[10] linguistics,[11] sociolinguistics,[12] psychoanalysis, political theory, feminism, and queer studies. Particularly in his later writings, he frequently addressed ethical and political themes present in his work. Life[edit] Derrida was the third of five children. Derrida traveled widely and held a series of visiting and permanent positions.

Crowdfunding Bible: Top Book on Crowd Funding, Kickstarter Rule of Life - The Spirit of Life If you find life offers too many daily struggles, without much focus or feeling of accomplishment, a Rule (sometimes known as a ‘Rhythm’) of Life, or a ‘Pathway’, could help you put things in perspective. A Rule can be anything: it can be adopted from a particular religious order (Franciscans, Northumbria Community) or it can be one you have constructed yourself, possibly with the help of a Spiritual Companion. Central to a Rule, or Pathway, is the understanding that it is there to help our everyday lives. Like a trellis helps a vine or rose to grow, a Rule is there simply to offer the strength and support we may find we need in our lives to help us grow as individuals. Help like giving ourselves time for a break! But a Rule can also include those actions many find as add-ons to their lives but which you could find fulfilment: charity, for example. Rules aren’t designed to be burdensome. What about a Rule that sets you a challenge: to read something new or do something different.

John Dewey John Dewey (/ˈduːi/; FAA October 20, 1859 – June 1, 1952) was an American philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer whose ideas have been influential in education and social reform. Dewey is one of the primary figures associated with philosophy of pragmatism and is considered one of the founders of functional psychology. A well-known public intellectual, he was also a major voice of progressive education and liberalism.[2][3] Although Dewey is known best for his publications concerning education, he also wrote about many other topics, including epistemology, metaphysics, aesthetics, art, logic, social theory, and ethics. Known for his advocacy of democracy, Dewey considered two fundamental elements—schools and civil society—as being major topics needing attention and reconstruction to encourage experimental intelligence and plurality. Life and works[edit] Along with the historians Charles A. Dewey was first married to Alice Chipman. Visits to China and Japan[edit]

The Rule - briefly ‘The Rule we embrace and keep will be that of AVAILABILITY and VULNERABILITY.’ We are called to be AVAILABLE to God and to others: Firstly to be available to God in the cell of our own heart when we can be turned towards Him, and seek His face; then to be available to others in a call to exercise hospitality, recognising that in welcoming others we honour and welcome the Christ Himself; then to be available to others through participation in His care and concern for them, by praying and interceding for their situations in the power of the Holy Spirit; then to be available for participation in mission of various kinds according to the calling and initiatives of the Spirit. We are called to intentional, deliberate VULNERABILITY: We embrace the vulnerability of being teachable expressed in: a discipline of prayer; in exposure to Scripture; a willingness to be accountable to others in ordering our ways and our heart in order to effect change.

Aristotle Aristotle's views on physical science profoundly shaped medieval scholarship. Their influence extended into the Renaissance and were not replaced systematically until the Enlightenment and theories such as classical mechanics. Some of Aristotle's zoological observations, such as on the hectocotyl (reproductive) arm of the octopus, were not confirmed or refuted until the 19th century. His works contain the earliest known formal study of logic, which was incorporated in the late 19th century into modern formal logic. His ethics, though always influential, gained renewed interest with the modern advent of virtue ethics. The sum of his work's influence often ranks him among the world's top personalities of all time with the greatest influence, along with his teacher Plato, and his pupil Alexander the Great.[9][10] Life At about the age of eighteen, Aristotle moved to Athens to continue his education at Plato's Academy. Aristotle was appointed as the head of the royal academy of Macedon. Logic

La Creatividad, algo más necesario cada día La creatividad, denominada también ingenio, inventiva, pensamiento original, imaginación constructiva, pensamiento divergente o pensamiento creativo, es la generación de nuevas ideas o conceptos, o de nuevas asociaciones entre ideas y conceptos conocidos, que habitualmente producen soluciones originales. Yo añadiría algo más, la creatividad es algo que nos hace únicos, es un elemento diferenciador y que muchas veces puede marcar la diferencia entre el éxito y el fracaso. Y visto como está el mundo hoy, cada día que pasa más me doy cuenta de que la única forma de sobrevivir en este mundo es ‘ser creativo’. Y es que además de unir creatividad a inventiva, considero que lo que que distingue a una persona creativa de la que no lo es, es la voluntad de modificar o transformar el mundo. Hoy por hoy es lo que necesitamos, ‘cambiadores del mundo’. La creatividad siempre ha ido ligada al mundo emprendedor.

Community of Aidan and Hilda – USA - Ten Elements of the Aidan Way The Ten Elements of the Aidan Way of Life In common with many communities within Christianity we have three vows. These are SIMPLICITY, CHASTITY, and OBEDIENCE which we understand as principles, not rules. SIMPLICITY means the willingness to be poor or rich for God according to his direction. We resist the temptations to be greedy or possessive, and we will not manipulate people or creation for our own ends. We are bold to use all we have for God without fear of possible poverty. 1. Daily Bible reading is at the heart of this Way of life. 2. We meet with our Soul Friend at least twice a year. 3. Prayer: We commit ourselves to a regular discipline of prayer. Work: We welcome work as a gift from God. Rest: The hours of rest and recreation are as valuable as the hours of prayer and work. 4. The Order affirms a world view that recognizes the reality of the supernatural and of spiritual warfare. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Del caos al orden: encontrar, filtrar y coleccionar contenido educativo En mi experiencia una de las mejores maneras de aprender un tema específico es investigando, organizando y construyendo tu propio marco personal de información con recursos, herramientas y experiencias alrededor del tema. Cuando pasamos de memorizar un contenido que se nos da predeterminado a coleccionar nuestro propio temario según nuestros intereses, nos sumergimos en una actividad de exploración personal, descubrimiento y comprensión desde el inicio, que sin duda resulta en un aprendizaje muy efectivo. Un buen libro de texto (en papel, digital o interactivo) puede seguir siendo el punto de partida para aprender un tema en el aula, pero en ningún caso la exploración de información debería quedar limitada aquí. Los estudiantes deben aprender a aprender. Para aprender a separar el grano de la paja, los estudiantes deberían participar activamente en un proceso de curación digital junto con el profesor. ¿Eres un buen curador de una materia educativa?
