Weekend Ed. Quote ~ May 29

“Saying yes to yourself opens up opportunities that can take you anywhere. Having a mentor in your life who says yes to you is also key. Appreciate your mentors when you’re starting out. And later, always give credit to the people who were there with you at the beginning.” ~Phyllis George

Perspective is All In How You Frame Your Experience

Addendum to Concordia Lesson

Is perspective one of the “liquid skills” that Taylor connects with STEAM Learning>

Peter Taylor (2016) writes that  “Given the rapid emergence of digital technologies, artificial intelligence, DNA mapping, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing, biotechnology and the ‘internet of things’, business and industry leaders are calling for graduates with liquid skills that enable them to adapt to a fluid working landscape throughout their lives; to prepare for jobs that currently do not exist, but that will be essential to the nation’s economic wellbeing. In this section, you will reflect on how to integrate STEAM activities and graphic organizers into your content instruction.”

Taylor (2016) connects STEAM education with “liquid skills.” that also mirror many 21st Century Skills. These liquid skills include “the ability to work with others, verbal communication, creative and critical thinking, active listening and active learning, and a disposition towards lifelong learning” (Infosys, 2016).

Perspective STEAM Activity:

Take a place piece of cardstock, the side of an Amazon delivery box, an envelope, or any piece of paper to use as your frame. Trace a cut a smaller square in the center of your cardstock frame.

Look through the cardstock lens for a new perspective.

Using Creately for Graphic Organizer Design

Educating from home offers many opportunities for collaborative learning and higher order thinking!

In one online class that I teach, grad students can access higher order thinking skills to compare and contrast three types of learning frameworks. These three frameworks figure prominently in STEAM/STEM education.

For some of us, it is easier to organize ideas via a Graphic Organizer. If Graphic Organizers are your “Love Language,” then perhaps this 3-component Venn Diagram will help.
