Smart thinking: Developing reflection and metacognition has been designed to cater for the increasing curriculum requirements to incorporate thinking, the 'thinking curriculum', and to assess students' thinking skills. This is particularly the case in the state in which this text was published, Victoria, with the introduction of the Victorian Essential Learning Statements in 2006, which include an interdisciplinary assessable domain called 'Thinking'. While many English teachers would argue that thinking has always been an important part of their curriculum, this textbook assists teachers in looking more ...

Games for Change (G4C) -- home - B·SERIOUS
Games for Change moved a few blocks downtown to NYU to round out this year’s festival with another new event, Games for Learning: Research and Design Innovation, a day long series of panels and talks hosted in partnership with the Games for Learning Institute .  The day even acquired its own motto, thanks to UCLA’s Greg Chung, whose quip, “hope is not a strategy” bore frequent repeating by both subsequent speakers and audience members. Among the key questions posed throughout the day: • How do we best determine good game design: through research, or game design itself? • How do we know when game players have learned, and ... market research, surveys and trends
groupthink jimspeak » content producer final post
so, overall, i was very happy with the final result of our content producer task, how we got there as a group, and my role individually within that. i think the first successful step in the whole process was establishing the theme for our project. i’d like to say that it came to us as a brilliant and spontaneous flash of genius, but in reality, it was born more from the fact that both brodie and i already had ideas for films on certain ‘tribes’ before our initial meeting – brodie wanting to make something about her band friends, and my desire to film my brother’s rifle club. we tried to think of ... market research, surveys and trends

A whistle blower's story
Frankly, I had forgotten him. But he e-mailed me, courtesy of Elpidio Que, who furnished him with my e-mail address, and reminded me thusly: "I am Danilo P.

Writing Matters 5 Helping Students Make Connections
It's not uncommon to hear it in the department mail room, or where the faculty gathers for lunch. We'll call it "Professor's Lament #5": How come my students just don't get it?

You'd think they'd be able to make connections and use what they learned in one assignment on the next! Our assessment research here at the Mānoa Writing Program shows that Lament #5 is ...

Is a person certifiably crazy if they see 'hidden' messages or ...
Someone I know can easily see and interpret a slew of so-called ‘hidden’ words, messages, etc. from normal everyday things, places and occurrences…this person also has an odd ability to extract seemingly endless and different combinations of words, meanings, etc. from countless juxtapositions of said words, numbers, places, etc. And from all these curious ways of deconstruction/construction, this person draws a lot of false conclusions about things to the point of pseudo-mania or the inner workings of a conspiracy theorist nut-case. For instance, here are a few examples, with this person’s conclusions about them: 1) I used to ...
