Why build a Personal Learning Network?

Why build a Personal Learning Network? | BeBetter | Scoop.it
“Time spent developing your Personal Learning Network is time well spent but it does take time. The danger busy teachers face is in becoming so engrossed in dealing with the day to day business of teaching that we make poor choices when it comes to time spent on our personal learning. We manage to find time for our students, for phone calls home, for report writing and programming all the while letting our engagement with learning slip down the list of things to do. Ensuring your personal learning is a priority is essential and should be seen against the value it brings to your students; enhance your teaching and you enhance their learning.”Munro, Hopkins and Craig recognise this when they state ‘Student outcomes depend on the teaching in the school, its pedagogic capital’. For you, your school and most importantly your students time invested in building a Personal Learning Network is time spent developing your pedagogic capital.

A great article ensuring that Educators make time to continually invest time into their own learning practices. Information is always changing, being updated,  being expanded, or being debated, so educators need to be aware of these adjustments. By analysing their knowledge and beliefs on certain topics and researching other perspectives educators will show growth and critical thinking in their own learning strategies.

Social Media Can Connect Those Suffering From Rare Genetic Disorders To Researchers Willing To Help

Social Media Can Connect Those Suffering From Rare Genetic Disorders To Researchers Willing To Help | BeBetter | Scoop.it
Each day we are finding new ways to use the unlimited connections and communication forums social media presents us, and this goes beyond sharing Kim Kardashian’s latest selfie. Researchers from Baylor College of Medicine, along with parent Bo Bigelow, are finding that social media could be a tool to help uncover the mysteries of rare genetic diseases, publicize the disease for potential research, and find other people out there who are suffering through something similar.When Bo Bigelow discovered that his daughter had a rare genetic mutation affecting her USP7 gene, he took to the Internet to share her experience.“Help us find others like Tess,” the Portland-based father wrote in his blog, hoping someone would reach out to him to shed some light on this unknown disease.Tess’s mutation has caused her to experience global developmental delay, hip dysplasia, and vision problems originating in the brain. Bigelow knew that Tess’s problem came from the faulty gene but not much else, and he wasn’t alone. The disease has not been studied extensively by doctors — something Bigelow hopes to change. After reading an article in The New Yorker by Seth Mnookin, detailing how social media could help find other parents caring for children with conditions similar to Tess’s, he started posting to his blog in hopes of understanding the disease and maybe even sparking interest in research.The father did not know at the time that Dr. Christian Schaaf, an assistant professor of molecular and human genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, was already researching the USP7 genetic mutation and making progress. With his colleagues, Schaaf was able to find seven children with the USP7 mutation and subsequent symptoms, while also connecting with Dr. Ryan Potts of the University of Texas, who was also exploring the genetic mutation.For their study, published in the journal Molecular Cell, Schaaf and Potts collaborated with other researchers to discover what causes USP7 to make this change. They found that it starts with three genes — MAGEL2, TRIM27, and, of course, USP7 — and how they affect the processing of critical proteins.“This process keeps everything in homeostasis,” Schaaf said. “It makes sure the right proteins are recycled at the right pace. We began to look at USP7 because we realized it interacts closely with MAGEL2. If you lose the protein MAGEL2, it causes Schaaf-Yang syndrome,” a disorder Schaaf and colleague Dr. Yaping Yang from Baylor discovered has similar symptoms to the USP7 mutation. Once Schaaf’s research was sent to the journal, his lab students found Bigelow’s blog and his request to get help for his daughter suffering from the same gene mutation they had been studying. Schaaf then made the decision to contact Bigelow. As a result, Tess’s case may possibly become part of their future research.Researchers studying genetics are finding that social media can be a very useful tool when furthering their knowledge of rare genetic conditions. In fact, this is not the first instance when social media has come in handy for medical research; in 2014, a study published in the journal Pediatrics also found that viral videos became the main source for researchers to find patients for trials regarding rare pediatric diseases. The trials recruited 84 percent of participants from social media alone.Bigelow’s podcast, “Stronger Every Day,” represents his effort to find and contact other parents going through similar circumstances. He hopes that as he finds more people, they can make a case for even more research to be done to help their cause."I’ve taken the strategy of the guy in the New Yorker article," he said. "Let other people find out. It's a reverse beacon that so far has connected us with this study and Dr. Schaaf. I would love to find more people."Bigelow also says the support you can receive has reached unprecedented heights thanks to social media networks."You hear the term 'rare disease,' and I'm not sure it's the best name for it," Bigelow said. "If you look at all the so-called rare diseases, it appears that there may be as many as 39 million people afflicted with them. The idea that you are alone is fading away as we connect with people."

"At the United Nations General Assembly this weekend in New York, U.N. member states are set to adopt the new Sustainable Development Goals. The goals are meant to guide development priorities around the globe over the next 15 years. Critics and supporters alike are declaring them to be highly ambitious — maybe even too ambitious. The SDGs, as they've come to be called in humanitarian lingo, replace the Millennium Development Goals, which were adopted in 2000 and expire this year. The MDGs dealt primarily with poverty, education and health in the poorest countries. The SDGs hit all of those topics but also tackle global inequality, environmental issues and access to technology."

The Ultimate Guide to Gamifying Your Classroom | Edudemic

The Ultimate Guide to Gamifying Your Classroom | Edudemic | BeBetter | Scoop.it
“ Gamification is the process by which teachers use video game design principals in learning environments. The effects are increased student engagement, class wide enjoyment of academic lessons, and high levels of buy-in, even from your most reluctant learners. When gamifying a classroom there are several things you’ll need to consider. The first is content, as in what are you trying to teach? Like any lesson or unit plan, you’ll need to figure out how to organize and assess new material. You’ll also need to consider your students. What kind of learners are they? What information do they already know? You’ll need to have a basic understanding of your students’ technology skills and how much support each student may need. You’ll want to consider putting together a training manual or some other support system for students who may need extra help. You’ll also need to consider your own comfort level with technology and the actual technology available to you. These considerations may lead you to designing your own game, or relying one a template or already built quest.”

20 Signs You're Emotionally Intelligent (And Why It Matters for Your Career)

20 Signs You're Emotionally Intelligent (And Why It Matters for Your Career) | BeBetter | Scoop.it

Why do some of the smartest people hit a wall in their careers where they can't seem to move up any further? And why do people who aren't as knowledgeable or experienced in a field become extremely successful leaders in organizations?

What sets people apart from their peers isn't cognitive intelligence or a specific skill set. It's their emotional intelligence: their ability to identify and monitor emotions -- their own and others' -- and to develop and manage productive relationships.

In fact, decades of research have shown that emotional intelligence is linked more closely with workplace success than cognitive intelligence, especially in management. While emotional intelligence becomes more important the higher a person rises in an organization due to their widening influence on the daily work of more people, studies have shown that this "skill" is linked to success at all levels.
