Five days a week -- week in, week out, for the year and a half that I've been a subscriber -- I'm extremely impressed with the consistency and the quality of the Daily Links produced by elearningpost.com.
The link to
Training Magazine: Stories, Curricula, Master's Degrees and Dragon Slaying Roger Schank explains how story-centered curriculums better prepare university students for work in the real world.is no exception.
The article provides an overview of the state of the art of Story Centered Curriculum (SCC), a concept pioneered by Dr. Schank. Following "the links within the link" -- one of my favourite activities associated with each edition of Daily Links -- led to socraticarts.com and these links:
- Eight Things That Can Be Done, part of the Engines for Education site
- Educational Outrage: "An Occasional Column by Roger C. Schank"
The concept of SCC "makes sense to me." I draw a connection between it and the Problem Based Learning model discussed in this blog yesterday.
NOTE: More about SCC and the connections I see to course readings for OISE/UT CTL 1602 -- Introduction to Computer Applications in Education -- in a subsequent post.
