Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability | Talk Video | TED.com - 1 views

  • Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love.
    • johnalleniv
       
      Dr. Brown talks a lot about the power of vulnerability and why it is the birthplace of creativity, innovation, and change. As an educator, we are constantly faced with how to grow as individuals in our practice. As a teacher who is targeting at risk older students to come back to school and get their high school diploma, exploring ways I can connect to my students is so important. I believe that all of us can walk away with some action steps after watching this Ted talk.

Note to Educators_ Hope Required When Growing Roses in Concrete.pdf - 0 views

  • ung people and their teachers, and theinvocation of powerful metaphor and imagery, Duncan-Andrade proclaims critical hope’s significancefor an education that relieves undeserved suffering in communities.The idea that hope alone will transform the world, and action undertaken in that kind ofnaïveté, is an excellent route to hopelessness, pessimism, and fatalism. But the attempt todo without hope, in the struggle to improve the world, as if that struggle could be reducedto calculated acts alone, or a purely scientific approach, is a frivolous illusion. (Freire,1997, p. 8)Barack Obama’s presidential campaign positioned him as the leader who could help restore hope tothe nation.

  • Through the voices of young people and their teachers, and theinvocation of powerful metaphor and imagery, Duncan-Andrade proclaims critical hope’s significancefor an education that relieves undeserved suffering in communities.
    • johnalleniv
       
      This is a concept that my school and I have discussed a lot over the years. Jeff-Duncan Andrade describes critical hope as "teaching in ways that connect the moral outrage of young people to actions that relieve the undeserved suffering in their communities."

      This is the only piece that I really want you to pay close attention to!

  • Critical hope demands a committedand active struggle “against the evidence in order to change the deadly tides of wealth inequality,group xenophobia, and personal despair”
  • Tupac Shakur (1999) referred to young people who emerge in defiance of socially toxic environmentsas the “roses that grow from concrete.”
  • Any growth in such anenvironment is painful because all of the basic requirements for healthy development (sun, water, andnutrient-rich soil) must be hard-won.

elearn Magazine: Mitigating conflict in online student teams - 0 views

  • I have been tracking sources of conflicts for the last three years. In that time, team members "going silent" is the number one source of conflict in the student team projects I have overseen. The number two conflict has involved "quality."
    • arinceglia
       
      Really interesting that the two top sources of conflict is going AWOL and Quality/Grades. I wonder what we can do as eLearning educators to set better expectations?
  • There are several preventative actions an instructor can take before the teams are set in motion. It all starts with the instructor's attitude towards team assignments. I have learned that students will often perform to expectations if they are properly and consistently reminded of them.

Tips for Overcoming Online Discussion Board Challenges | Faculty Focus - 0 views

  • Solution: Each conflict presents teachable moments where we can teach the importance of debate, healthy discussion, keeping emotions in check, the value of opposing views, and how this type of conflict can be valuable by introducing ideas and approaches that others had not previously considered.

    • arinceglia
       
      I love how this online educator uses conflict resolution within discussion board moderation as a teaching tool! In the right teachers' hands, conflict in online communities and discussion boards can be a very wonderful tool!
  • Conflict in the discussion: It would be wonderful if the discussion went as planned with each student jumping in with substantive and polite comments, but that is not the real world of the online course. With such a diversity of students and with the anonymity of the online environment (although students can see one another’s names, the lack of a physical presence often gives a faux image of students being “invisible” to one another), conflicts of ideas, beliefs, insights, and suggestions can arise.

The Elements of Communication: A Theoretical Approach - 0 views

  • Whether in a marketing strategy, a client-server model, or just day-to-day conversation, communicating effectively is an amalgamation of art and science. 
    • arinceglia
       
      Remembering that 'channel' is partially to completely eliminated in modern eLearning environments, this statement is quite applicable to the education landscape as well.
  • Whether things go right or wrong, it serves as one of the most important learning opportunities we have.
  • Chain Reaction

    It’s a tired old cliché, but these eight elements truly are only as strong as their weakest link.  The best communicators master them all.

    • arinceglia
       
      Well said! I think that this has direct bearing on better understanding how to modify online learning communities so that we can communicate just as (if not more) effectively than in face-to-face environments.

  • First the perspective of the classroom must change to become learner centered. Second, students and teachers must enter into a collaboration or partnership with technology in order to create a "community" that nurtures, encourages, and supports the learning process
  • Has the educational system reached the point of development where no further improvement can be expected from current educational technology?
  • This occurs when a teacher consciously decides to designate certain tasks and responsibilities to the technology, so, if the technology is suddenly removed or is unavailable, the teacher cannot proceed with the instruction as planned.

Philosophies of learning and teaching can be viewed as a continuum with extreme educational interpretations of behaviorism (for example, instruction) and cognitivism (for example, construction) at either end.

  • Although instruction has traditionally focused on learning specific content, much of contemporary curriculum development focuses on solving problems that require learners to develop ever evolving networks of facts, principles, and procedures. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (1989), for example, suggested that greater emphasis be placed on solving open-ended "real world" problems in small groups, connecting mathematics with other content areas, and using computer-based tools to allow students to speculate and explore interrelationships among concepts rather than spending time on time-consuming calculations. To achieve such goals, learning should take place in environments that emphasize the interconnectedness of ideas across content domains

Illinois, Chicago Schools Reach Agreement on PARCC Testing - 0 views

  • Becky Vevea, writing for WBEZ Public Radio, reports the CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett said she does not think the test is appropriate for administering to students this year, but added that the state had given her office no choice. One result of this decision is that CPS students will be bombarded with tests for the rest of the school year. Not all students will be taking all the tests, but the number of tests is disruptive, explains Wendy Katten, head of the parent group Raise Your Hand.
  • Currently, Illinois has no “opt out” provision for removal from testing for parents and students.
  • In January, CPS announced it would give the test at only 66 of its over 600 schools, although all schools were instructed to prepare for the test.
