[Infographic] Teacher's Love For Technology is Changing Classrooms

[Infographic] Teacher's Love For Technology is Changing Classrooms | Compassionate Action Network International (CANI) | Scoop.it

"Gone are the days when teaching meant the traditional use of blackboard, chalk and pencils. Technology has a major role in the 21st century and schools are adopting it across the globe. While at one point in time, adopting technology into the classroom may have been perceived as stressful and forced for teachers and students alike, as it stands now, students aren’t just excited about using technology, teachers are excited and highly capable of utilizing its presence in the classroom. Technology is being seen as an aid to teaching by many teachers and they are enthusiastic about its use in education."

What Happens When Students Are Simply Free To Learn? | Compassionate Action Network International (CANI) | Scoop.it

"If you could learn about anything, what would you choose to learn? If you gave this freedom to your students, what would they choose?... According to Katherine von Jan, in her Huffington Post article, Pursue Passion: Demand Google 20% Time at School,  'every Google employee spend 20% of their time (the equivalent of a full work day each week) working on ideas and projects that interest that employee. They are encouraged to explore anything other than their normal day-to-day job. As a result, 50% of all Google’s products by 2009 originated from the 20% free time, including Gmail. Real breakthrough happens when we are free from others’ expectations and driven by individual passion'.”

Health: The Biology of Joy | Compassionate Action Network International (CANI) | Scoop.it
Richard Davidson was in a lab observing a Buddhist Monk Sink deep into serene meditation when he noticed something that sent his own pulse racing. Davidson, a professor of psychology and psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin, hurriedly double-checked the data streaming to his computer from electrodes attached to the monk's skull, but there was no mistake. Electrical activity in the left prefrontal lobe of the monk's brain was shooting up at a tremendous rate. "It was exciting," Davidson recalls. "We didn't expect to see anything quite that dramatic."

Empathy to change the world

Empathy to change the world | Compassionate Action Network International (CANI) | Scoop.it
Empathy can be facilitated in numerous ways. Parents can teach empathy at a young age by always posing the question or mindset of “how do you think that makes them feel?” When they take a toy from their friend, this tactic helps kids to think critically about their actions and the repercussions it has on others.

 

During the teenage years, teachers and youth-leaders can help facilitate understanding through well-integrated service learning (click to learn more), a learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. This type of teaching, when student-led, can have reverberating effects in the lives of teens not only at the moment, but years down the road.

Great processes, but could I suggest a slight re-phrasing of the question: rather than asking a child to reflect on how something 'makes' someone feel, perhaps just encourage them to consider how they imagine that person might feel, or how the child herself might feel if it happened to her. As well as learning empathy, we all need to learn to take responsibility for our own feelings, and I worry that the language of 'makes me feel' discourages that equally vital capacity. What someone else does may trigger a reaction in me, but that person doesn't 'make me feel' anything: my feeling is a product of how I interpret what has happened as well as what has happened. As the Talmud says, 'We see the world not as it is but as we are.'

Gratitude As A Business Strategy | Fast Company

Gratitude As A Business Strategy | Fast Company | Compassionate Action Network International (CANI) | Scoop.it

"Most of us are fantastic complainers. When someone doesn't meet our expectations, we let them know. The problem is, we tend to take excellence--and thoughtfulness, and kindness, and joyfulness--for granted."

 

What a FABULOUS article! I love it love it.  As the author asks at the end, "Who do you know who is a masterful "thanker"? Do you have any stories or examples of gratitude as a marketing strategy?"

 

As soon as I read this I realized what a powerful and overlooked business story topic this is.  I'm adding it into my list of business core stories today so I can work with clients on developing these stories.

 

As we wind up our Thanksgiving holiday and head into Christmas, gratitude continues as a theme.

 

I would love to hear how adding gratitude stories into your repertoire is making a difference in your business.

Former Executive Director of the Interra Project, Ramer is co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at Ideal Network, a group-buying social enterprise located in Seattle, Washington that donates twenty-five percent of every purchase to a local non-profit or school. He is also the designer and co-founder of the Compassionate Action Network, an organization that led the effort to make Seattle the first in the world to affirm Karen Armstrong’s Charter for Compassion. In his initial role as Executive Director, Jon conceived and launched the Ten Year Campaign for Compassionate Cities, which has now spread to over fifty cities worldwide.

Goleman writes about the just-released book (April, 2013) by his wife, Tara Bennett-Goleman:  Mind-Whispering:  A New Map to Freedom from Self-Defeating Habits. In the book, Bennett-Goleman explains recent neuroscience research on how our habits form in the first place, why they are so hard to alter, and smart tactics for replacing dystunctional ones with more effective ways of being in the world.  Sounds like it may be worth reading!

There’s no shortage of bodies (some dramatically misguided) attempting to solve this riddle.  The answers are nebulous at best. Below is a list of traits, some of which may be familiar but many of which will never show up on any sort of performance review. "

Teacher's are our children's role models when they are not at home.  I believe most teachers exhibit these characteristics.

A4Academics's comment, April 27, 2013 10:34 AM
I like to add one important point that is a must for teachers. They should be really passionate about the job. If the teacher is is not passionate about what they do, during hard times they may falter.

Gratitude is a word that is thrown around a lot. But what does it really mean?
We are told to be grateful but often it seems as if gratitude is more an obligation than anything else. Another item on our already overburdened to-do list. We may end up feeling resentful when we are expected to feel grateful particularly under difficult circumstances.
