  7. 7. Why do dispositions matter? 7 “Knowledge of methods alone will not suffice: there must be the desire, the will, to employ them. This desire is an affair of personal disposition.” John Dewey Dewey, J. How We Think: A Restatement of the Relation of Reflective Thinking to the Educative Process. Heath and Co, Boston, 1933
  8. 8. “We’re looking at the profiles of what it means to be effective in the 21st century. […] Resilience will be the defining concept. When challenged and bent, you learn and bounce back stronger.” John Seely Brown 8 US Dept. of Educ. http://reimaginingeducation.org conference (May 28, 2013) Dispositions clip: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/clip/4457327 Whole talk: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/SecD Why do dispositions matter?
  9. 9. “We’re looking at the profiles of what it means to be effective in the 21st century. […] Resilience will be the defining concept. When challenged and bent, you learn and bounce back stronger.” “Dispositions are now at least as important as Knowledge and Skills. …They cannot be taught. They can only be cultivated.” John Seely Brown 9 US Dept. of Educ. http://reimaginingeducation.org conference (May 28, 2013) Dispositions clip: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/clip/4457327 Whole talk: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/SecD Why do dispositions matter?
