Book Summary :

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Gemeinschaftskunde / Sozialkunde, Note: 1,0, Technische Universitat Dresden (Institut fur Politikwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Unterrichtsverfahren im Fach Gemeinschaftskunde, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Dies ist eine Form des Lernens in Gruppen und eine exzellente Methode, ein Unterrichtsproblem oder eine Thematik zu bearbeiten und abzuschliessen. Diese Lerntechnik findet sich im Umfeld von vielen Spielen, Methoden und Arbeitstechniken, die in zahlreichen Buchern beschrieben und ausgeleuchtet wurden. Erstaunlicher Weise findet man die Gruppenmethodik der Denkhute," oder auch Six Thinking Hats," in kaum einem Buch verzeichnet. Dieses Thema schien bei meiner Literaturrecherche beinahe unausgeleuchtet. Lediglich in einem Buch von Matthias Nollke konnte ich etwas Genaueres uber diese Technik lesen. Eine Tatsache, die ich als Fehler ansehe. Diese Methode eignet sich in vielerlei Hinsicht zum Vertiefen eines Themas, zur Ausweitung einer Thematik auf andere und zum Abschluss einer Problematik. Dies unbeobachtet zu lassen, heisst in diesem Fall, eine Fackel zu besitzen, welche einen Raum ausleuchten kann, sich aber zu weigern die Fackel anzuzunden. Entweder, weil man zu unsicher ist und unbedingt auf die neuste Technik der Taschenlampen warten will oder weil man sich weigert das Feuer als Erfindung anzuerkennen. So oder so verbirgt sich hier ungeahntes Potential, dass ich, da es in der Literatur und anderen Bereichen offensichtlich bisher zu mangelhaft betrachtet wurde, im Zuge dieser Arbeit naher veranschaulichen mochte. Zu Beginn wird eine detailliertere Betrachtung der didaktischen Variante In Gruppen lernen" vorgenommen, welche auf die spezifische Methode der Denkhute" hinleitet. Dort soll eine genaue Einordnung in verschiedenen Gebieten, wie die Art der Methode und den Grad ihrer Mehrpoligkeit, vorgenommen werden, sowie ein genauer Bezug zu Sanders didaktischen Prinzipien. Auf diese Weise soll aufgezeigt werden, wie in"

Book Summary :

Traditional thinking habits of businesses need to be greatly improved. Analysis and judgement are no longer enough to make important corporate decisions; you can analyse the past but you have to design the future. Corporate decisions depend on values. Disputes and conflicts often arise because of a clash of those values; each party in the dispute wants to pursue its own values, often at the expense of the other party. It is therefore essential that companies, managers and employees have a full understanding of the values of everyone involved to design a way forward that benefits all parties. From the bestselling author of How to Have a Beautiful Mind and Six Thinking Hats, this groundbreaking business book provides a basis for value assessment, an essential tool in decision-making for 21st century corporations. De Bono demonstrates that values come into all areas of thinking, behaviour and decision-making and outlines a framework to focus employees' attention on a variety of values including human values, organisational values, cultural values and perceptual values. By introducing a scoring system to rate different values as strong, sound, weak or remote de Bono helps readers to prioritise and make executive decisions that count.

Book Summary :

‘Of one thing in life we can be sure. The quality of our life in the future will depend on the quality of our thinking.’ Why are we so prone to be negative? And how can we become more positive, both as individuals and as a society? The answer lies in the way we think. The key to positive thinking is developing new concepts, whether this means coming up with a brand new idea or just looking at an existing one in a new light. If we make a deliberate and positive effort to change our thinking we can secure a positive future, and we can harness the focused power of human thinking by releasing it from its pettiness. Edward the Bono is the Nobel Prize nominated father of creative thinking and the master of training the mind to think the right way. He wrote the multi-million copy bestseller Six Thinking Hats and many other revolutionary works on how to think. This classic work was first published in 1979, and since then our belief in the power of positive thinking has only become stronger.

Book Summary :

‘Tom Bennett is the voice of the modern teacher.’ - Stephen Drew, Senior Vice-Principal, Passmores Academy, UK, featured on Channel 4’s Educating Essex Do the findings from educational science ever really improve the day-to-day practice of classroom teachers? Education is awash with theories about how pupils best learn and teachers best teach, most often propped up with the inevitable research that ‘proves’ the case in point. But what can teachers do to find the proof within the pudding, and how can this actually help them on wet Wednesday afternoon?. Drawing from a wide range of recent and popular education theories and strategies, Tom Bennett highlights how much of what we think we know in schools hasn’t been ‘proven’ in any meaningful sense at all. He inspires teachers to decide for themselves what good and bad education really is, empowering them as professionals and raising their confidence in the classroom and the staffroom alike. Readers are encouraged to question and reflect on issues such as: the most common ideas in modern education and where these ideas were born the crisis in research right now how research is commissioned and used by the people who make policy in the UK and beyond the provenance of education research: who instigates it, who writes it, and how to spot when a claim is based on evidence and when it isn’t the different way that data can be analysed what happens to the research conclusions once they escape the laboratory. Controversial, erudite and yet unremittingly entertaining, Tom includes practical suggestions for the classroom throughout. This book will be an ally to every teacher who’s been handed an instruction on a platter and been told, ‘the research proves it.’

Book Summary :

The last millennium has not been a great success. We have advanced in science and technology, but not much in human behaviour. Is it possible that this has been due to poor thinking? Edward de Bono maintains that the thinking of the last millennium has been concerned with WHAT IS. This is the thinking of analysis, criticism and argument. What we have not sufficiently developed is the thinking concerned with WHAT CAN BE. This is thinking that is creative and constructive, and which seeks to solve conflicts and problems by designing a way forward. The emphasis of his proposed new thinking is on design and not judgement.
