Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 1, 6:02 PM

This is an interesting article considering it was published in 1962. The language is modernistic, but the ideas are sound when rethought in a more post-modern way.

Building Relationships: "The power of vulnerability"

Building Relationships:  "The power of vulnerability" | Building Effective Relationships With Students | Scoop.it
Brené Brown studies human connection -- our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

People with a strong sense of love and belonging feel they are "worthy".  They have courage to be imperfect.  Compassion to be kind to themselves first and connection as a result of authenticity.  And then to others.  Fully embraced vulnerability.  What made them vulnerable made them beautiful.

It’s been interesting to watch Megan grow up, from an elementary school student all the way to today, as a college student.

Aspirations_Framework

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Developed by The Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations (QISA)

 

QISA believes that for students to have high aspirations, three Guiding Principles must be
present: Self-Worth, Engagement, and Purpose. These Guiding Principles direct the development
of educational experiences, from the individual classroom to the entire school building. Students
who have aspirations believe in themselves, are meaningfully engaged in their learning and the
life of the school, and work with intention toward their goals.

The Guiding Principles, in turn, are lived out through the 8 Conditions that emphasize
relationships, active and engaging teaching and learning, and a sense of responsibility over one's
own aims and goals. The 8 Conditions are: Belonging, Heroes, Sense of Accomplishment, Fun &
Excitement, Curiosity & Creativity, Spirit of Adventure, Leadership & Responsibility, and
Confidence to Take Action. The 8 Conditions make a difference because they help schools put
into practice the three principles that guide Aspirations work.

Students don’t need a ‘voice.’ Here’s what they really need. | Building Effective Relationships With Students | Scoop.it
When they say, 'Let�s give students a voice,' they mean, 'let�s give them a seat at school board meetings.' Not good enough.

Via Bethan Morgan
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Who does the curriculum really belong to, anyways?

 

"People talk about giving students a voice. A seat at the table. If we’re going to solve these problems, we’re going to need more than that. We want kids to be engaged in learning, to be excited to show up and happy about school? Give them real agency in their own education.

We want kids to be learning, to be passionate about their work? Let them learn things that have real meaning to them. Make them the authors of their curriculum.

We want kids to learn how to learn, to be innovative, to make change, to be able to tackle the nuanced and constantly shifting problems that the future presents? Don’t give them a voice. Give them our schools."

Aspirations_Profile

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

What accounts for the difference between a student who talks about goals and one who actually
reaches them? What makes the difference between a student who works hard at everyday tasks
and one whose hard work leads to a promising future? The difference is in the student’s
aspirations—his or her ability to set goals and think about the future while being inspired in the
present to reach those goals. As the definition suggests, there are essentially two pieces of the
aspirations puzzle: dreaming and doing.
