6 Things Teachers Do to Flip the Classroom

Get 6 Real World Examples of a Flipped Classroom from Subject Experts.

    Think-Know Tools: An Online Learning Community Facilitated by Howard Rheingold

    Think-know Tools dives into both the theoretical-historical background of intellect augmentation and the practical skills of personal knowledge management. Now that we have access to powerful mind-amplifying devices and self-evolving collective intelligence networks, we can benefit ourselves and improve the commons by learning how knowledge technologies work and how to work them:

    • Modules on Roots & Visions of Augmentation and The Extended Mind establish a conceptual-theoretical-empirical basis for understanding and discussing both the origin and future of tools specifically devised to magnify thinking capabilities and group problem-solving capacity.
    • Modules on Social BookmarkingConcept Mapping, and Personal Knowledge Management introduce practical tools and practices for finding, storing, refining, sharing, exploring knowledge.
    • Learning activities include group bookmarking as focused collective intelligence, concept map-making for understanding systems, construction of knowledge-plexes with Personal Brain.
