Waldorf School Education

Support our channel with a small donation at http://www.patreon.com/sprouts Waldorf education is based on the principles of Anthroposophy by Rudolf Steiner. Rudolf Steiner founded the first school in 1919 Stuttgart Germany to educate the children of the factory workers from the Waldorf Astoria Zigaretten Fabrik – hence the name. All kids, independent of social status or talent received the same instruction, which made the school a pioneer of social justice in education. The goal of a Waldorf education is to develop free, but morally responsible individuals equipped with a high degree of social competence and creative capabilities. Factual knowledge, homework and tests scores receive less attention. Storytelling and experimentation are the main method of instruction, textbooks are being avoided. Over the twelve-year curriculum, students learn math, literature, history and science as well as a wide variety of arts and hands-on skills. Elementary students paint, knit, weave and sculpt with wax. Older ones make patterns, books, pottery and sculpt in stone. Everybody learns to do music. First all play the flute, then some play string instruments and others join the choir. Students play non-competitive games and learn to dance eurhythmy. They do organic farming and learn two foreign languages, which in the first years are taught through songs, storytelling and conversations. In grade 8 and 12 the entire class develops a classical drama which they perform in front of their parents and friends. Waldorf uses a unique project based approach to almost all main academic subjects. Instead of repetitive schedules, a specific subject, such as history, math, science or even gardening dominates the first two hours in the morning for a period of 4-6 weeks. After that, a new subject gets the main focus. Steiner also invented an experiential approach to science whereby students observe and later describe scientific concepts in their own words and drawings rather than learning about them in a textbook first. Waldorf schools therefore consider computers useful to children only in their teens, after they have mastered fundamental, time-honored ways of discovering information and learning. In the spirit of personal development and empathy, competition and grades are being avoided. Teachers instead assess the student’s individual growth of character. Tests scores and grades are only slowly introduced to older students as they prepare for college and entrance exams. Today there are over a thousand Waldorf schools in 60 countries, making it one of the largest independent school movements. Waldorf has become a recognised educational theory in Europe and its schools have received state funding.

Israel High Tech News .Israeli startup Interlude raises $ 50 -$ 100 Millions , from Sony . Last week Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) announced that it had invested in Israeli startup Interlude. No financial details were disclosed but CEO and cofounder Yoni Bloch has said, “We are talking about tens of millions of dollars.” With offices in New York and Tel Aviv, Interlude is a media and technology company that is pioneering a new kind of video that responds to a person’s emotions and interests. The company has raised $38.2 million to date including an $18.2 million financing round in December 2015 from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Warner Music Group, Samsung, Sequoia Capital and Intel Capital. The company, which has developed the Eko interactive storytelling platform, has 60 employees, half of them in Israel. Bloch, 34, began his musical career when he was 21. He has recorded three albums and produced albums for other singers and even managed a stint as a guest judge on the Israeli TV talent show A Star is Born. Then in 2009 he decided to pursue a career in high-tech and he founded Interlude with CTO Tal Zubalsky and Barak Feldman. The Eko platform changes audience passivity by enabling creators to easily script and craft stories that can be shaped by the viewer based on a range of options and their preferences. Bloch said, “This is a language that most young producers have been waiting for. They have been looking for a new language and through our technology they can realize it.” Globes: What is the aim of the cooperation with Sony? Bloch, “To produce interactive series that exploit technology to tell a story that couldn’t be told in a linear way.” What is new at the company since your last financing round? “The company has grown particularly on the technology side. Our videos play on iPhones and Androids and through virtual reality. Our most recent strategic fund raising ensures that the world’s best quality content producers work and invest in content on our medium.”

ECO15 London: Impact VC Panel Solarkiosk ClearlySo DOEN Foundation SET Ventures

Favorite

For the first time, we did a panel about the intersection of impact investing and venture capital at ECO15 London as we believe it is a very important topic and a great opportunity for startups to tap into more sources of capital. A lively discussion emerged between Andreas Spiess (Solarkiosk), Mike Mompi (ClearlySo), Daan Lameris (DOEN Foundation) and Rene Savelsberg (SET Ventures). Most people agree that impact investing is about supporting startups that create environmental, social and economic impact in parallel. Still, there are different personal and and corporate preferences when it comes to putting an impact investing strategy into practice. Some entrepreneurs and investors focus on social impact while others want to create impact by supporting founders in the early stage when less fundraising alternatives are available as the risk is still too high. Agreement was reached that scale plays an important role as we want to create big impact with big startups. At any rate, impact investors and financially driven VCs may actually complement one another very well as they bring different values and skill sets to the table. The founders just have to make sure that values are aligned and the same growth strategy is supported by all investors.

In his Honors Thesis, 2016 Baylor Graduate Nathan Elequin discusses the unlikely alliance between game design and educational psychology, and the strategies that educators can implement in their learning programs to increase the engagement of their students. FOLLOW THE SLIDESHOW (http://bit.ly/27wRGKN) DOWNLOAD THE FULL THESIS (http://bit.ly/1TGGC3U) READ THE ABSTRACT BELOW: Press A+ To Play: The Emerging Field of Gamification in Higher Education Director: Jason Whitlark, Ph.D. Higher education faces a critical issue with producing and encouraging engagement in and out of the classroom, as students are finding more reasons to dismiss their coursework as a “means to an end” in the game of the degree-grab. Meanwhile, research from the unorthodox and previously-untapped field of game design offers to provide a unique solution to these educational concerns. In short, the newly-emerging field of gamification asks a simple question – how can we make the learning experience more meaningful and fun for the average student? In this expansion on the works of TEDx spokesperson Yu-Kai Chou and New York Times bestseller Jane McGonigal, I argue that game designers possess an invaluable expertise in holding the attention of and creating meaningful experiences for emerging adults. I then dissect the higher educational discipline from the perspective of a game engineer, to discuss and diagnose the critical failings of the institution in exciting and engaging its students. Finally, using Chou’s pioneering Octalysis Framework, I will detail eight strategies for improving learning through a game design approach, concluding with a listed arsenal of engagement tools that be directly-applied to the programming and pedagogy of the classroom. By the end of this thesis, parents, student, educators, and administrators alike will have acquired actionable tools to increasing the enjoyment and engagement of their educational experiences.

Using two concepts that are related but not equivalent (teaching and learning), Sofia Castro and Paulo Vasconcelos, two teachers from the School of Economics and Management from University of Porto, designed a learning methodology. By using this method the student is free to choose their own educational path. This methodology can be used by individualists, by students who prefer to work in groups, protects introverts and exposes extroverts. The motivation and the effort under this strategy will guide the student to the desired goal: the success. Sofia Castro is Full Professor at Faculty of Economics and a researcher at Maths Research Center of the University of Porto. Besides doing research in Mathematics in the areas of Dynamical Systems and Singularity Theory, she has collaborated with economists in addressing research questions in economics, including problems of general equilibrium, oligopoly theory and New Economic Geography. Throughout her teaching career she has been confronted with several pedagogical challenges that motivate her continuous development in this area. Paulo Vasconcelos is Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Economics and a researcher at the Maths Research Center of University of Porto. His research focuses on Numerical Analysis, Computational Mathematics and Computational Economics.

The one solution to most problems: Future clarity | Simon Moss | TEDxDarwin

Why does life sometimes feel so hard? Simon shows that many problems in society, from mental illness to crime, can largely be ascribed to one cause: a hazy, uncertain future. Fortunately, recent scientific advances can be applied to help people clarify their future. Dr Simon Moss is an Associate Professor at Charles Darwin University. His primary research interest concerns how characteristics of organizations and societies, such as inequality of income or leadership, influence the brain functioning—and ultimately the mood, creativity, intuition, engagement, honesty, and altruism—of individuals. To investigate these issues, Simon has published a range of books and articles in the fields of leadership, emotion, motivation, and integrity. For example, he is an author of “The negative side of positive thinking”, “Where should I work?”, “The Science of Management”, “Sustainable coaching”, and “Emotional Intelligence: Journey to the Source”. Simon was also a cofounder of Zenith Professional Development, a company that collated every scientific discovery that contradicts prevailing management beliefs and practices.

Education Award Pitch (Winner): From dropouts to innovators | Nathalie Lecina | TEDxAmsterdamED

Favorite

Nathalie Lecina from Studio Moio tells us that we need drop-outs to change the world! According to her, drop-outs are the best innovators ever, since they do not fit into any preconceived box. They don’t have to think out-of-the-box because they were never in it. For a number of years, Nathalie Lecina worked at the Institute of Societal Innovation (Instituut Maatschappelijke Innovatie) and while there became aware of the fact that the so-called innovators were all somehow ‘part of the system’. Especially after noticing that the education system is failing to motivate people to learn and demotivating them from developing themselves. Her idea could be a hack on the education system, and some other systems at the same time. ‘Drop-outs are the most valuable resource for innovation, especially for innovation in education.’ For more information go to: www.studiomoio.nl Nathalie Lecina is the winner of the TEDxAmsterdamED 2015 Award.

In the era of AI and robot, having understandings of making things or coding underlined with logics and creativity is ever more important. With more than 1 in 3 couples divorcing, building an independent, professional career for women is a paramount life skill. Emi’s talk dives deep into the changing role models in families and society and the reasons why parents need to encourage young girls to be more curious and pursue higher education in STEAM subjects. As an internet industry veteran, Emi embarked on startup journey since 2010 and co-founded Peatix.com in 2011, a leading community event platform in Japan and Southeast Asia. Emi has led efforts to drive its adoption in Japan and the Southeast Asia region as CMO and Head of Asia. Emi has also co-founded Unreasonable Lab Japan, a hyper-accelerator for social entrepreneurs in Japan since 2015. Emi is currently focused on projects to reimagine education for the 21st century as a co-founder of FutureEdu Tokyo, a member of EdTech Women Japan, and a fellow at Mistletoe KK. Emi also serves as a member of Information and Communications Council. Emi holds a BA in Economics from Keio University, an MBA from the Wharton School, and an MA in International Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. A mother of two digital native children.

The revelations of Edward Snowden about mass surveillance continue to inform discussions about privacy, cyber-security, counter-terrorism and digital ethics. How can these topics fit into discussions about digital citizenship in the classroom? Should we be concerned about the amount of information we freely share with businesses and corporations via social media and settings on our smartphones like location services and even our microphone? What kinds of things should we be aware of as citizens in the surveillance state, and are there issues on which we should be advocates for regulation or limitations on the abilities of both governments as well as businesses to collect and use information about citizens for their own purposes?

Learning needs to be disrupted. The way teachers think of themselves as learners needs to be disrupted, and the way we deliver instruction in classrooms need to be disrupted. So how can we disrupt? We can start by making three simple changes. We need to change the focus of questions in education, how we gather information about student learning and growth, and we need to redefine what it means to be literate in the 21st Century. With three simple changes we can hopefully create an atmosphere of binge learning in classrooms everywhere – where students learn to love learning again.

Engaging Kids Today: It’s about pedagogy not just technology. The body of literature around student engagement is vast and continues to grow. Educators have never been better informed of the complexities and interactions between pedagogy, technology, neuroscience and engagement. Yet, across the western world in particular, studies suggest that student engagement levels continue to drop. Why is this? Could one of the reasons be, that despite all the talk of an Education Revolution, most of the action centres around standardisation, assessment and accountability? In this presentation, Dan explores how, by understanding authentic engagement teachers can inspire mini-revolutions in their own schools and communities, to ensure that – not only are kids prepared for tomorrow – they are engaged today.

Reliability is Everything. Technology lessons learned from one of the UK’s top ranking schools. Marek Polniaszek – Head of IT at Wilson’s School, Sutton. In an environment of increasing demand for ‘digital technologies in the classroom’, blended learning, BYOD, 1:1 and the relentless growth of educational applications, coupled with ever-constricting budgets, the requirement for a reliable technology infrastructure is paramount. An appropriate educational technology solution requires three components: 1. Infrastructure reliability 2. Consistently reliable high performance 3. Reliable and predictable longevity In this informative, straight-talking session, Marek Polniaszek, Wilson’s School’s Head of IT skips the hype and marketing to discuss how they put an end to the constant fix-patches and instead engineer a new infrastructure architecture designed to transform a slow, unreliable legacy environment to an extremely reliable, high performance and ubiquitous IT delivery system designed to benefit all subjects and departments, with measurable results. Wilson’s school now delivers an education eco-system that consistently places it at the top of UK rankings, and at over 400 years old, the school has had to continually adapt over centuries to meet ever-changing expectations. With schools throughout the country replicating this model, this is a session not to be missed. Marek is a head of IT, consultant and coach who is an expert at achieving the highest performance outcome utilising the minimum possible resources. With 30 years’ experience in the IT industry, Marek has mastered multiple IT roles, working on several, multi-national projects, including Unilever and Radianz. Moving from an enterprise environment where money was not so constrained, into education where budgets continually tighten has allowed Marek to develop a highly efficient IT strategy that other schools throughout the country are replicating. As well as heading up IT at Wilson’s School in Sutton, Marek now advises other schools on infrastructure policies and implementation.
