Education used to be as simple as a book, a chalkboard, and a pencil but the current notion of education is evolving alongside technology. Is a person’s education defined by the piece of paper hanging on the wall or is it more about the hands-on experience of problem solving and lesson feedback?

many fake people have those papers hanging on the wall without the real practical experience and that is why educ .does not mean much to some people.

What are "Learning Environments for Tomorrow?" This wildly popular infographic from a Programs in Professional Education (PPE) session shows process and product, having already been retweeted hundreds of times on Twitter and shared digitally to thousands of educators across the country. 

Truly, 'technology in the service of learning.'

Creativity is important for young children learning mathematics. Comparing the investment theory of creativity and national standards and principles for early mathematics shows that doing mathematics is more than applying rules and procedures; rather, learning mathematics takes a lot of creativity. However, much literature claimed that creativity for young children in the learning of mathematics was not adequately supported by teachers in the classroom due to teachers’ poor college preparation in mathematics content knowledge, teachers’ negativity towards creative students, teachers’ occupational pressure, low quality curriculum, and the like. The purpose of this grounded theory study was to generate a model that explains how teachers make sense of creativity in the learning of mathematics and how teachers promote or fail to promote it in the classroom. In-depth interviews with 30 Kindergarten to Grade-3 teachers, participating in a graduate mathematics specialist certificate program in a medium-sized Midwestern city were conducted. These teachers were also asked to draw a picture to represent their understanding of creativity for young students in the learning of mathematics. A theoretical model was developed describing: 1) the central phenomenon of how teachers interpret mathematical creativity; 2) the strategies teachers use to promote creativity in the learning of mathematics; and 3) the consequences of how different aspects of mathematical creativity are promoted by different strategies in different degrees. The findings challenge the popular notion that teachers do not view mathematics in early grades as requiring creativity and that they are not supporting enough creativity in the learning of mathematics in the classroom. Instead, this study finds that teachers from the graduate certificate program have a well-developed concept of mathematical creativity and that they are also resourceful about how to promote creativity in the learning of mathematics. This study provides researchers and teacher educators information on how to assist teachers to facilitate creativity and strong mathematics capability for children from an early age.

Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching +eLearning Industry 

The phenomenal evolution of Internet in terms of access, content, and teaching platforms has resulted in many more individuals considering retraining through blended learning. A market niche for an online Professional Development Award (PDA) in Project Management was identified as a suitable programme to utilise and exploit the available blended learning platforms at Forth Valley College (FVC). The accredited course by Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) and Chartered Managers Institute (CMI) was adopted as the pilot programme, and adapted for online delivery.

+Libratic Virgonian If vocabulary geniuses are not required, then poets and writers have no place in this world.  We must be broad-minded to appreciate all kinds of talents of the mankind.

About this community

Thinking about how and why teaching and learning are redefined in the age of the Internet. Join us in our other online space at http://www.LearningRevolution.com. ---- I'm starting this Google+ community to have a dialog on the changes in education that are (and could be) taking place, and the ways in which we might influence those changes. My "Hack Your Education" tour around the US the last few months has left me even more convinced that policy changes are not the answer, but that the change needs to come from us. That we need, as individuals, families, and communities, to reclaim the conversation around "learning," and to do so in such a way as to recognize the inherent worth and value of every student, with the ultimate goal of helping them become self-directed and agents of their own learning. Associated with the FutureofEducation.com interview series. Posting policy: self-serving links to commercial sites, or links or posts that are not relevant to the conversation here will be removed.

A suggestion is to try to include your original search terms because that may be the primary focus of your thesis.

*PLEASE COMPLETE* the attached Questionnaire if you are willing to help. THANK YOU!

*HELP NEEDED* I'm developing an "interview" project for my students that will be part of my Career and Lifestyle Unit. The concept is small groups of students with common career interests will interview a working professional via Skype or Google Hangout. Each student will have to develop a short online questionnaire, share it with the professional, and ask the professional 1-2 questions during their group’s interview. After the interview, the small groups will work collaboratively to develop a brief report and deliver a presentation to the class about the experience and what they learned.
I’m looking for working professionals that would be ‘willing’ and ‘able’ to participate in a short (roughly 15 minute) video interview with a small group of students. I’m looking for professionals in all career fields (from executives to tattoo artists, contractors to Doctors, and EVERYTHING in-between).

If you can participate, please let me know and I’ll reach out to you.
Thanks everyone!

Interviewee QuestionnaireThank you for taking a few minutes of your valuable time to complete this questionnaire about your career. My students will use these answers to evaluate career options and to develop good questions for their video interview with you. Your answers will not be published and will only be used by my students. THANK YOU AGAIN! If you have any questions, please contact me at tbenrud@guhsd.net
