The magic of consciousness by D. C Dennett( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on everything from neuroscience to the world of art, Dennett reverse-engineers the stage magic of the mind: From the experience of deja vu, to magic tricks and optical illusions. In doing so, Dennett powerfully demonstrates that once we begin to see how the brain creates "illusions" we can begin to imagine how it creates consciousness."--Publisher
Understanding by Howard Gardner( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Howard Gardner argues that a principle goal of developing the human mind must be 'disciplinary with memorization'--the ability to flexibly apply discipline to new situations or problems. At the same time, he illustrates how intuitive theories of the 'unschooled mind' make disciplinary understanding both counter-intuitive and difficult to develop--from the sciences and math, to the arts and humanities. Moving toward the goal of key understandings across the academic, artistic, and even moral domains, Gardner demonstrates the four necessary components of educating for understanding. In turn, he proposes how MI can yield multiple entry points to the mastery of skills and concepts. Using vivid images, he illustrates why only deep immersion, not the accumulation of facts, will get us to 'understanding.' Looking to the future, Gardner argues that globalization and the digital revolution will demand even more challenging interdisciplinary thinking along with new models of synthesis to cope with unprecedented amounts of information."--Into the Classroom Media website
Five minds for the future( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Four megatrends are changing our world and the nature of learning. Globalization interconnects every aspect of our lives. The biological revolution in brain science and genomics is teach and learn. From Wikipedia and social media to online technological revolution poses new questions about how much education should take place in the digital world and on smart devices. Lifelong learning is both a revolution and an economic necessity which is outmoding the idea of circumscribed k-12 schooling. In the context of these accelerating megatrends, Howard Gardner reveals 'five minds for the future'--the intellectual and relational capacities that will be required tomorrow. Then, using his 'triple helix' of good work, he passionately demonstrates why intelligence and learning can't be abstracted from big questions about 'what kind of world we want? ' or 'what makes a good person?' As every area of life is subsumed by market forces, Gardner highlights the goals, obstacles, and ethical dilemmas which will confront every profession and domain. Challenging us with the 'figure ground struggle' in education, Gardner asks if our focus will be on test scores and rankings, or the kinds of individuals and societies we want to foster."-- Into the Classroom Media's website

Darwin's dangerous idea by D. C Dennett( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program is a presentation of a Daniel Dennett lecture and his views on Darwin's theory of evolution. Dennett considers Darwin₂s theory of evolution by natural selection the best single idea that anyone ever had. But it has also turned out to be a dangerous one. Science has accepted the theory as the most accurate explanation of the intricate design of living beings, but when it was first proposed, and again in recent times, the theory has met with a backlash from many people. What makes evolution so threatening, when theories in physics and chemistry seem so harmless? One problem with the introduction of Darwin₂s great idea is that almost no one was prepared for such a revolutionary view of creation
