▶ Noam Chomsky - The Purpose of Education - YouTube
learning to learn on your own. // against indoctrination, dogma, propaganda, // student debt is a trap // exponential impact of technology, augmented intelligence, robotics, software, automation, ... hockey stick move will come/near. // framework to guide your pursuit << understand what u are looking for. otherwise will go in wrong direction. randomness. // nobel prize winners didn't publish most articles in journals, they knew what to look for. capacity to seek what is significant. (defying other peoples dogma) always willing to question whether you are on the right track or not. // education mostly seen as investment into people that create jobs/economic growth. rather than create better human beings. // taking tests can be of use to some extent. taking tests, score well, but have not interest in it, and understand very little and keep very little long-term. // better to learn to understand and explore than to score insular test questions. IT MATTERS WHAT YOU DISCOVER.

Students 'cannot multi-task with mobiles and study' - BBC News
Researchers found that students sending and receiving messages while studying scored lower test results and were less effective at tasks such as note taking. The study examined how a generation of "voracious texters" might be affected by so many online distractions. It found that when students did not use mobiles, they were better at being able to recall information. [...] The study, Mobile Phones in the Classroom: Examining the Effects of Texting, Twitter, and Message Content on Student Learning, carried out a series of tests with 145 undergraduates. [...] "It is a common occurrence to observe students who are physically present, yet mentally preoccupied by non-course-related material on their mobile devices. "As mobile devices have deeply saturated the college student population, this problem will likely continue to pose a significant obstacle," says the study, by Jeffrey Kuznekoff, Stevie Munz and Scott Titsworth. // life hack = focus 100% without distractions, opp for procrasti

Making Computer Science More Inviting: A Look at What Works
“I don’t particularly think that the existing computer science curriculum has been effective for anybody. It needs to be situated in a real-world or meaningful context so people understand why they’re doing it. That doesn’t make it less rigorous — students learn the same things, but in a different way.” — National Center for Women & Information Technology co-founder Lucy Sanders // like applied science, building stuff, real world things as team projects over the course of the whole semester, away from the math, theories, dry textbooks, learning by doing - figuring it out by trial end error (failure),

Pushy parents stress out children, Eton head says - BBC News
There has been a rise in the number of parents "living their lives through their ambitions for their children", the head teacher of Eton has said. Tony Little, who is leaving the school, said most parents had been "supportive" but there were now "more pressures on young people than ever before". And if his pupils failed to conform to parents' "outcome template", it could "add to the stresses" in their life. Eton employs a full-time psychologist to promote "good mental health". [...] "Children don't learn unless they are happy," she said. [...] In a wide-ranging interview, Mr Little also said he was "exasperated" by England's exam system and that learning subjects in "silos" prevented pupils from thinking laterally. "It's like an egg timer," he said.

Google 'should be allowed in examinations' - BBC News
It is inevitable search engines such as Google will be allowed in public examinations, including GCSEs and A-Levels, the head of an exam board says.

Beyond Bulimic Learning Improving teaching in further education - bit.ly/1HVzPkq &! 1.usa.gov/1GLcsLJ - Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. -Confucius >> The bulimic learning model unintentionally ignores the 3 steps involved in the learning process: (1) remembering information; (2) thinking, which is the rearrangement of information; (3) learning, which is the use of information in a thought process until the person is fluent.10 Bulimic learning never allows the student to get beyond the first step of remembering. This only contributes to students' feeling unprepared and “knowing nothing”
