Feel Like You’re Going Out of Your Mind? Consider Your Mind-Set – The New York Times

Feel Like You’re Going Out of Your Mind? Consider Your Mind-Set – The New York Times:

“High school teachers in cities around Texas, including Houston, El Paso and Fort Worth, who had studied in a growth mind-set program, said students with more of that mind-set were able to adapt faster to online learning. And the teachers themselves are using what they learned to guide students; as one teacher said in an Education Week article, he tried to make sure his students were comfortable enough to discuss their struggles ‘That’s the big thing from growth mind-set. What do you do when you have that struggle? I try to push onto them, ‘you use it as a learning opportunity. You ask questions, you can’t just give up.’’”

Compressed Learning

Pick up to six topics or areas of interest. Each day there will be some learning and engagement with the areas you have chosen. You can even plan in an exercise period if you like.

You will be amazed at how much you can learn in these short bursts of time. Focus and interest make a huge impact on totality of what you learn.

Knowledge Creation

“As knowledge becomes the resource of post-capitalist society, the social position of school as “producer” and “distributive channel” of knowledge, and its monopoly, are both bound to be challenged. And some of the competitors are bound to succeed.”

The Future of Reading?

The Future of Reading?

Recently, Amazon released new Kindle models. With this introduction Amazon is beginning a push to integrate their Kindle e-books with their Audible audio books. Recently, I’ve noticed that if you buy the Kindle version first, you can purchase the corresponding audiobook version for a greatly deducted price. As I recall, the deal would be about $16. The idea is that you can read an e-book and switch to the audio version for listening on the go. The beauty is that the version are synced. Meaning, the versions can pick up where you left off in the other format. 

How will combination ebooks and audio books change the face of learning? Some people find it hard to sit for long periods of time reading a book. If, after an hour of reading it might be useful to get up and go for a walk… and, while you are out, continue listening to the book you were reading.

 

Bottom Line

This is an idea that will shape the future.

This is a quick post. There may be some incomplete thoughts and other typographical errors. This was written while listing (live) to Amplified, the 5by5 podcast with Dan Benjamin and Jim Dalrymple. iOS 6 comes out later today.
