The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise
with the occasion. As our case is new,
so we must think anew and act anew.
We must disenthrall ourselves, and then
we shall save our country."
Washington, D.C.December 1, 1862 http://showcase.netins.net/web/creative/lincoln/speeches/congress.htm Technology as an invisible tool:
"It is knowing when and how to utilize specific technology that makes a person a wise user of technology." --Davies
Social Networking sites Does this learning process, described by Collins and Halverson, replace school? According to the book:
50% of high schoolers are bored in class.
82% 9th and 10th graders ( in California) reported that school is “boring and irrelevant”.
Pink says that intrinsic motivation revolves around 3 elements:
1. Autonomy: the urge to direct our own lives
2. Mastery: the desire to get better and better at something that matters
3. Purpose: willingness to do something on behalf of something that is bigger than yourself If we don’t know,
what we don’t know,
can we make an educated decision of what we should learn? Robinson’s definition of creativity is this:
“Imagination is not the same as creativity. Creativity takes the process of imagination to another level.
My definition of creativity is “the process of having original ideas that have value.”
Imagination can be entirely internal. You could be imaginative all day long without anyone noticing. But you never say that someone was creative if that person never did anything. To be creative you actually have to do something. It involves putting your imagination to work to make something new, to come up with new solutions to problems, even to think of new problems or questions.
You can think of creativity as applied imagination.” How long did it take you to decide when to go to college and graduate from college? Question? * The New Horace Mann

Do you believe that children have the right to choose what middle/high school to go to? Do you believe that all teenagers
should have the right to pursue
from high school? Are you willing to become a
strong leader yourself? Karl Duncker- created "The candle problem" in 1945 Witch one would you bet?
Friedman or DuBois? Duncker: overcome "Functional Fixedness" Our education is rooted on the classical education:
(were added later) Liberal Arts What is important to learn:
2- Mathematics The 5 Habits of the Mind:
1- From what view point are we seeing? Reading? Hearing?
2- How do we know what we know? What’s the evidence? And is it reliable?
3-How are things, people, and events related?
4- What is the cause and effect?
5-What if? Do you think there's still a place for the
Liberal Arts curriculum? Adaptive
Thinking 1- Why do we go to school?
2- Career mobility- life as successions of careers
3- Income gap between
High school graduates
and college graduates Would you advise a student to take time off before going to college?
Do you think, if they decide to go back to college later in life,
they will have the motivation to complete it? References

Federal legislation in the United States currently mandates that technology be integrated into school curricula because of the popular belief that learning is enhanced through the use of technology. The challenge for educators is to understand how best to teach with technology while developing the technological expertise of their students. This article outlines a framework of technological literacy designed to help educators understand, evaluate, and promote effective and appropriate technology integration.

Pink, Daniel- The puzzle of motivation
Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don't: Traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories -- and maybe, a way forward.

In this talk from RSA Animate, Sir Ken Robinson lays out the link between 3 troubling trends: rising drop-out rates, schools' dwindling stake in the arts, and ADHD. An important, timely talk for parents and teachers.

Education scientist Sugata Mitra tackles one of the greatest problems of education -- the best teachers and schools don't exist where they're needed most. In a series of real-life experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, he gave kids self-supervised access to the web and saw results that could revolutionize how we think about teaching.
