Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability | Talk Video | - 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.

  • 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."
  • Critical Hope: The Enemy of Hopelessness
    • johnalleniv
      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.
