A aula expositiva tem sido uma das principais estratégias pedagógicas em todo o mundo, desde que o método foi consolidado pelos jesuítas na Idade Média. Mesmo com a introdução de outras metodologias, baseadas em autores como Jean Piaget, e o crescente uso de ferramentas de tecnologia educacional, as aulas expositivas continuam presentes no cotidiano das escolas.Seguindo esse conceito, o professor entra na sala e expõe o conteúdo de uma disciplina para os alunos, que fazem anotações e perguntas. No final da aula, o professor passa a lição de casa. Na aula seguinte, após a correção das tarefas, o professor faz outra apresentação e assim sucessivamente, até a conclusão do curso.Recentemente, porém, um método que inverte esta lógica tem sido adotado por professores. É o flipped classroom ou sala de aula invertida.
A união de tecnologia educacional e atividades de aprendizagem nesse modelo permite que os alunos vejam as aulas no seu próprio ritmo, pausando para fazer anotações ou retrocedendo a gravação se não entenderem alguma explicação, por exemplo.

Brazil's Government is Falling Apart...and it's Good News?

"During the presidency of Lula Da Silva, billions of dollars in bribes were taken to allow construction companies to overcharge the government-owned oil company, Petrobras. Now, Brazil has corruption, but it's actually pretty good for a developing country. But the people of Brazil have come to expect more, and they have been left down.

Current president, Dilma Rousseff, was chairwoman of Petrobras during the period of corruption, but no one knows whether Lula or Dilma were involved or aware. But Lula was under investigation before Rousseff appointed him to be her chief of staff, a move that means he can no longer be prosecuted by a normal court.

I think this whole thing speaks very highly of Brazil. A reckoning had to come, and I'm pleased the citizens are holding the government accountable. However, I can't stop seeing parallels between the awful partisan situation here in the U.S. and the lack of skepticism people in this story have when it comes to believing awful things about their political opponents.

Using this scandal to clean up Brazil must be done, but using it to score political points or gain power is going to rip the country apart.

This is an epic story, and no one knows where it ends. Whether Rousseff retains power and who gets elected once the house is fully cleaned out will say a lot about how this very young democracy handles its economic and cultural growth when people's perceptions are controlled largely by social media.

I think there are many good things in Brazil's future, but leaders will have to do more than fight for power. They will have to actually lead."

Zoolander, Hansel appear on SNL to discuss ‘Donnie’ Trump’s signature look

Fictional male models Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) were on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update ahead of their upcoming movie to share their thoughts on the 2016 presidential election.
It was New York Fashion week but as Hansel explained, “we are not here to talk about fashion. We are here to talk about the one thing everyone wants to hear male models talk about: politics.”
When anchor Colin Jost pressed for specifics about what politics they would be discussing Hansel simply responded with: “fashion.”

B.I.R.D. Methodology

Personalized learning is intended to facilitate the academic success of each student by first determining the learning needs, interests, and aspirations of individual students, and then providing learning experiences that are customized for each student. To accomplish this goal, PrEP may employ a wide variety of educational methods, from intentionally cultivating strong and trusting student-adult relationships to modifying assignments and instructional strategies in the classroom to entirely redesigning the ways in which students are grouped and taught in a school.
Hence, B.I.R.D. "Methodology" was developed.
