I'm taking the #Coursera #Learning How to Learn course

This assignment is to teach others. I decided to make a giant thread for my coding community since you all give me so much.

The course is teaching how learning happens. The course lessons are backed up by #neurological science. #Learning is not something only for the young, there are techniques that are easily obtainable to help you learn difficult subjects in any discipline.

"We ordinarily think of learning as something we do when we sit down to study a book. But actually, being able to learn more easily and deeply involves many important facets--including not only periods of focused concentration, but also periods of relaxation...

Getting started with Want to succeed with #TDD ? Stop writing tests! @BurkHufnagel #TDD #DevNexus devnexus.com/presentations/…
We work with software that's way more complex than a simple shape like this. Reasonable people may see the same thing in different ways, based on their perspective! @BurkHufnagel #TDD #DevNexus
You have a goal that you share with me: you want delivering better code faster
... not *writing* code more quickly! @BurkHufnagel #TDD #DevNexus

This #BIWisdom Friday I'd like to explore concepts of a #DataCulture. What do *you* think it is? How is it sustained by #Success and #Value? Does support from #BILeadership with a #CDO help? How important are the #Data #skills (maybe especially Literacy)? Join is at 1PM EST
Just a few minutes until this week's #BIWisdom. Join us to discuss #Data #culture . What might it be, how do you use it, how can you value it, or know if it is working.
Happy #BIWisdom to us all. I hope everyone had a fine week.

Learning about surface vs deep learners. @lsu Teaching Colloquium. Thinking about implications and applications of learned information.
Learner needs to regard info as important, intriguing, or beautiful. Then deep learning occurs. Learner needs to be in charge of the question. But, few students will not take a deep approach to learning.
Students are conditioned to take a surface approach to learning. School is the biggest place that conditions surface learning. #KenBains #learning #whatTheBestCollegeTeachersDo

It's that day of the year again!

The @worldbank World Development Report is out!
"The Changing Nature of Work"

And as some of you know, I always read it on the day of publication and live tweet my review

Background: here's my review of the last 5 WDRs oxfamblogs.org/fp2p/is-there-…
Last year's WDR on education has been heard loud and clear

#WDR2019 starts by acknowledging the importance of learning outcomes

(Well done to the WDR2018 team for all their comms work, within and beyond the bank)
But... the implication seems to be that if you improve the human capital of workers, then pay will also increase

Many things might spring to mind when someone says the word assessment, so this thread aims to clarify that our Assessment Lead Programme is nothing to do with data drops or tracking systems but everything to do with using the craft of assessment to support teaching & learning
When we talk about assessment, we’re referring to a planned, purposeful process that produces valuable information that leads to better decisions about #teaching & #learning
By supporting you to make your assessment practice & approach more effective & efficient, you can do more with less for a more manageable & meaningful use of #assessment

“We have this idea that #machines can liberate us from repetitive tasks, but there are different templates to use this #technology...” @PauloBlikstein #AIED2018 @AIEDconf | @uclknowledgelab @EDUCATEldn @AIConf2018 @brussels_ai @digityser @results4dev @CEInnovations @audreywatters
“Another element in this template, is that #learning happens at different paces... it changes from person to person ... but the awareness of the limitations has somehow been lost over the decades” @PauloBlikstein #AIed @AIEDconf #personalizedlearning @uclknowledgelab @EDUCATEldn
But...here’s the problem

“There is a big problem with this template that we have been using for decades ... in using this map...” @PauloBlikstein

7 Paradoxal Singularities.

Self-confidence
Culture
Learnings
Hiring well
Firing fast
A Players
Growth

medium.com/human-machine/…
1/ Self-confidence. Great to fuel conviction, motivation, resilience. Make sure it doesn't undermine or annihilate humility, clarity of vision and focus. #attitude
2/ Culture. Fundamental for purpose, cohesion and success. Must be inclusive, progressive and open-minded to last sustainably. #team

My experience with learning modes - Text vs Video content

- Due to concentration lapse, it's easier to drop off for a few minutes from a video content (> 5 mins)

- Concentration lapses happen in text too, but its easier to re-read the para vs rewinding the video

#learning
- For consuming the same amount of content, text form is less time consuming than videos.

- To explain complex topics/situations, texts usually take more time building up the context than videos.
- We try to understand things by building mental imagery, that way videos are more efficient than text because it takes a bit of time to build the mental imagery from interpreting the text and yet you might not be building the right imagery.

💪A thread on amazing Twitter threads 😍👇
In the process of revamping my #Twitter profile (dormant earlier), I have come to appreciate the wonderful underutilized platform it is!
Some threads contain crisp knowledge capsules that can help many. Starting 1 on such curated content
1. I largely rely on this: threadreaderapp.com to find content
2. What I wish to share is what coincides largely with my interests- #Learning, #Investing, #Behavioralpsychology (#mentalmodels, #bias, etc), #Businessbooks, Industry insights/case studies, Life experiences, etc
3/n
While it will be difficult to structure the order of content here, I will try to block threads by category (as noted above & more). Feel free to comment with any good thread that you would have come across. Cumulative learning always helps.
