    1. This is especially meaningful because I spent fewer than 30 minutes with each student, and the task did not emphasize memorizing facts.

      Challenge: I wonder how this would be affected by time constraints? I taught in an 8th grade ELA class that had 50 minute periods. I know in high school and some middle schools, block scheduling gives them 1 hr and 20 minute blocks. Would having more time to study and analyze information increase test performance?

    1. “Students may surprise us if we leave quality open-ended.”

      Challenge: I dont know for certain if leaving quality open-ended would inspire students to excel beyond the satisfactory target. Sometimes a student needs motivation or guidance to reach beyond the bare minimum.

    2. Just like with the analytic rubric, if a target was simply met,  you can just highlight the appropriate phrase in the center column.

      Challenge: How can a single-point rubric inspire someone to achieve an advanced or higher level of scoring? It focuses on achieving the bare minimum.

    3. Analytic rubrics have two significant disadvantages, however: (1) Creating them takes a lot of time. Writing up descriptors of satisfactory work — completing the “3” column in this rubric, for example — is enough of a challenge on its own. But to have to define all the ways the work could go wrong, and all the ways it could exceed expectations, is a big, big task. And once all that work is done, (2) students won’t necessarily read the whole thing. Facing a 36-cell table crammed with 8-point font is enough to send most students straight into a nap. And that means they won’t clearly understand what’s expected of them.

      Challenge: Two points here: 1) Save time creating rubrics by using AI tools like MagicBus. Be sure to review them for accuracy and cohesiveness. 2) Stick to 3-5 of the most important categories for your rubric. Yes, trying to read a 36-cell table with 8-point font is exhausting and will make your eyes glaze over. Combine categories if necessary or stick with the most essential points.

    4. The main disadvantage of a holistic rubric is that it doesn’t provide targeted feedback to students, which means they’re unlikely to learn much from the assignment.

      Challenge: Maybe the students can learn more about their scores if the description of the performance levels on a holistic rubric was more detailed and thorough?

    1. How to beat procrastination?

      07.00 Clear goals — goals that focus on the action, not the outcome. (Very specific)

      See GTD on next-actions that make a distinction between outcomes (projects) and clear goals (Next-Actions)

      "This keeps your brain from wondering, what is the first step?"

      10.00 Challenge-skill balance. Find sweet spot where challenge is slightly more than your skill level. Too much challenge is anxiety, too little is boredom. How to tune it? (1) Lower the hurdle. (2) Compress time for a given task. (3) Define scope (What needs to be done? Why? How long?)

      14.00 Bypassing/response inhibition. Engaging in a task as soon as you are committed. Don't waver. Sleep to flow is an example.

      17.30 Flow payoff — have long blocks of focus, where the struggle to get into flow is actually worth it.

    1. "It is clear that individuals in their variety of social roles can contribute significantly in emissions reduction," says Joyashree Roy, professor of economics at Jadavpur University in Kolkata, India. But unless they are supported by the right infrastruture, technology and policy incentives, she says, this cannot achieve its full potential.
      • Comment
        • this statement epitomizes the crux of the matter
        • that demonstrates the entanglement between
          • a collective of (bottom-up) individuals and
          • top-down, system level actors
        • This is why the often-repeated mantra "individual actions don't matter" is not accurate
          • the contribution of individual actions DO matter, but only if it is supported by:
            • policy
            • ubiquitous 1.5C infrastructure
            • affordable 1.5C technologies and services
          • There is a MASS of people wanting to make the change
            • but that cannot happen unless it is
              • behaviorally and
              • economically pragmatic to do so
        • the real question to ask
          • in order to mobilize a bottom-up 1.5C lifestyle shift is
          • where are the leverage points for bottom-up actors (we individuals) to impact the top-down actors?
    1. I was working as a lecturer and working on this project. I am the producer too and I had to get all the funding from the government because none of the investors were interested in this film because people like big budget, commercial films. They also think having the main character as a middle school girl, it’s not going to make money so I didn’t get any money from commercial investors.  I got maybe like seven or six funding from all different institutions like Korean Film Council, Busan International Film Festival, Sundance Institute – so many different organizations. But I didn’t get a big chunk of money, so collecting all these small funds took many years.

      Kim Bora talks about how difficult to attract investors because investors like big budget and commercial films. So she has to apply fundings from the government and collect small funds here and there from different institutions.

    1. Kim Bora face challenges in persuading investors to choose a middle school student as the protagonist.

    1. Jay Patel. (2021, December 12). Well captured by @snolen. Even as vaccine supply becomes more reliable, the uptake challenge across Africa is partly down to “vaccine indifference” rather than hesitancy––there are far more pressing problems across the region.

It’s how we evolved to get around a massive genetic and bioenergetic challenge and it’s brilliant and it’s happening all the time regardless of any vaccines we get. [Tweet].

    1. fun, fairness, and challenge

      Fun, fairness, and challenge could inform the development of three standards with students that could be used to structure their PE sessions. Ask them how do you measure fun? How do you measure fairness: How do you measrue challenge? If they participate in the development of standards, they will be more interested in using them as a guide to improvement - have more fun, play more fairly, ramp up the challenge.

    1. Luisa: I wanted to be challenged and I did my research. Whitney Young is supposed to be for people who are gifted and I wanted to be challenged. I wanted something more. Everything has always been extremely easy for me. When I put my mind to it, I get what I want. It sounds bad, but it's true. I think the problem with human beings is that you’re your only true enemy. You block yourself from doing everything in life, and the moment that you accept you can do everything, you can actually do everything [Laughs, sniffles].Luisa: That's what I wanted. I wanted a challenge. I wanted something more. I wanted teachers who actually listened. I wanted teachers who paid attention. I didn't want teachers who were bored and sick of it because these students are like Puerto Rican and gang members and they don't matter. I didn't want that. I wanted somebody who cared, but I didn't get that. I kind of got it. I got the IB program, which was great [Chuckles]. Still not a challenge. It was still not a challenge.

    1. Just because a student can access information does not mean that they know how to apply critical thinking skills in such a way that they can use the data well. Teaching students how to apply c

      This is true. I'm always suprised how even some of my most sophisticated students can sometimes struggle with this.

    2. Digital texts encourage behaviors such as skimming and keyword seeking. One theory is that many readers use this method as a way to manage information overload.

      Yes. This is a challenge that students complain about reading online and this is an interesting reason as to why.

    1. Business models will reach theirsell-by dates more quicklyLeaders of the so­called “sharing economy” such as Uber, the mobile ride­services company, and Airbnb, the online accommodations marketplace, are re­writing the economics of their industries. Other disruptions are waiting in the wings. Emory profes­sor Konsynski points out that the very premise of ownership is fading away, and Millennials are less interested in ownership than are members of earlier generations.

      Business models fading quicker / ownership less interesting to milennials (challenge)

    2. Training to fill skill gaps is increasingly offered online and on a just­in­time basis. As part of its new ap­proach to learning, The Walt Disney Co., for example, has implemented a platform that offers video, mobile and digital content to employees as needed. “Three or four years ago, learning at Disney happened in class­rooms,” says Steve Milovich, senior vice president of global human resources and talent diversity, Disney/ABC Television Group and also senior vice president of employee digital media, The Walt Disney Com­pany. “Now we offer content such as TED­like talks featuring Disney executives that allow employees to seek knowledge when and how they need it.”Just as important as developing talent is reducing the risk of losing it. On average, nearly 80% of respon­dents say they want to work for a digitally enabled company or digital leader. The sentiment crosses all age groups, from 22 to 60, nearly equally. “The myth is that digital technology is a young person’s game,” says Scott Monty, the former executive vice president of strategy at Shift Communications, now principal at Scott Monty Strategies. “At one point, women over 55 represented the fastest­growing Facebook demo­graphic. This is about how humans interact, not just about how Millennials do.” (See Figure 5.)

    1. unfamiliar—that is, a metaphorical Journey in which designers move into unchartered territory by attempting to formulate what hasn’t yet been formulated.

      Head Scratcher: using this simple explanation of "unfamiliar" we can see that it is difficult to navigate through territory that has not been properly formed yet or mapped out.

      How do we move forward as Instuctional Designers into the future of Education and Instruction?

      My best efforts so far have been to never be afraid to try new models or technology to lead your instruction.

    1. Critical and creative thinkers engage in active planning and forethought to set goals, outline strategies, and determine the best methods through which they can achieve their goals

      Head Scratcher: How are we promoting critical and creative thinkers in our instruction?

      As a high school math teacher this can be easier at times, and more difficult at times depending on the class and the course material. At times it is easy to promote creative when dealing with honors classing and higher math courses. But when working with remedial Algebra classes it can be more difficult to promote creativity and critical thinking because of high levels of apathy and prior knowledge. Sometimes the best way to promote success in those classes is through repetition and memeorization of steps to solve common test promblems.

    1. Are designers also wasting the time of the critics?

      Wow what a way to end the chapter. Are instcutional Designers wasting their time decorating their instruction or filling them with jargon that they miss the point of educating the learners.

      This is a wonderful story about something that anyone could be familiar with and understand how instrucitonal design can go at times. Lending to the attractiveness and lacking on the informing side.

    1. By focusing on the condition of the looking glass, Joyce suggests the artist does not start his work with a clean slate. Rather there is considerable baggage he or she must overcome. This baggage might include colonial conditions or biased assumptions. Form and context influence content.

      This seems a bit analogous to Peggy McIntosh's Backpack of White Privilege I was looking at yesterday.
