6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.

Why Sociopaths Succeed

Why Sociopaths Succeed | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it

It would appear that many organizations in India and elsewhere actually celebrate sociopathic behaviour in leaders. Some psychologists have even suggested that there may be a sweet spot, an ideal level of sociopathic trait. It helps leaders keep teams in line, and feel no empathy or remorse at cutting costs or firing employees...

 

In contrast, empaths, or individuals with high emotional intelligence, pose the greatest threat to a sociopathic mind.


Studies of organizational behaviour suggest that the empath may feel internally compelled to take a stand against the sociopath, but the sociopath is usually able to shift the blame on the empath, while going scot-free himself. The term 'gas-lighting effect' has been used to describe behaviours by which a sociopath will attempt to erode her opponent's reality.

Teaching Empathy - Encouraging Appropriate Behaviour

Teaching Empathy - Encouraging Appropriate Behaviour | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it

These days, bullying is rampant.  From locker rooms to social media, kids gang up on other children, leaving them in tears or worse, causing them to consider or attempt suicide.  


When you read the constant reports about such merciless bullying, you have to wonder, how can you teach children to be empathetic? Are our children lacking Empathy?

....


 What is Empathy? According to New York Times blogger Jessica Lahey, “In order to be truly empathetic, children need to learn more than simple perspective-taking; they need to know how to value, respect and understand another person’s views, even when they don’t agree with them.” ... Modeling Empathy. But how do you model empathy?  One of the most important ways to teach empathy is to model empathetic behavior.  ... Peer Pressure. One of the biggest reasons for bullying is peer pressure. .. Fighting the Cliques. One of the biggest reasons for bullying is the crowd mentality.... Empathy Fosters Diversity. Empathy involves more than simply feeling sorry for other people – it involves doing something about the situation if they are suffering..

How to Integrate Social Media and Blogging from The Art of Social Media

How to Integrate Social Media and Blogging from The Art of Social Media | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it

Ideas that spread, win. ~Seth Godin

 

A few years ago, blogging and social media were separate. Blogging was long-form, serious, and crafted. Social media was short-form, personal, and spontaneous. Some people predicted that social media would replace blogging because of declining attention spans.

 

Now blogging and social media not only amicably coexist; they complement each other. The trick is to use a blog to enrich your social media with long-form posts and to use social media to promote your blog.I recently did a live webinar event with Marketo about The Art of Social Media, and we’d like to share the takeaways from the presentation and a few of the follow-up questions that we answered....

What motivates us at work? More than money

What motivates us at work? More than money | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it
“When we think about how people work, the naïve intuition we have is that people are like rats in a maze,” says behavioral economist Dan Ariely (TED Talk: What makes us feel good about our work?) “We really have this incredibly simplistic view of why people work and what the labor market looks like.”

Instead, when you look carefully at the way people work, he says, you find out there’s a lot more at play — and at stake — than money. Ariely provides evidence that we are also driven by the meaningfulness of our work, by others’ acknowledgement — and by the amount of effort we’ve put in: the harder the task is, the prouder we are.

“When we think about labor, we usually think about motivation and payment as the same thing, but the reality is that we should probably add all kinds of things to it: meaning, creation, challenges, ownership, identity, pride, etc.,” Ariely says.

Below, take a look at some of Ariely’s other studies, as well as a few from other researchers, with interesting implications for what makes us feel good about our work.

I like Dan Ariely's work and TED contributions on work and motivation. Here is a nice overview of some of his (and colleagues') other research in this field of research. Some of the research headlines:

 

- "The less appreciated we feel our work is, the more money we want to do it."

- "The harder a project is, the prouder we feel of it"

Leaders Who Can Read Collective Emotions Are More Effective -- INSEAD

Leaders Who Can Read Collective Emotions Are More Effective -- INSEAD | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it

emotional intelligence, which evaluates how well individuals perceive and deal with affectively charged interpersonal situations. But there are situations in which leaders have to deal with the emotions of large groups of people, not just those of one or a few individuals and most managers don’t have time to operate on a one-on-one basis all the time. Understanding the collective can help leaders respond effectively to the group as a whole. This happens in situations such as dealing with the collective anxiety of executives facing the news of corporate restructuring; or public authorities dealing with the collective anger of large groups of people in the streets; or politicians seeking to inspire large groups of people to win an election. Those with the skill to pick up on the subtle emotional cues of the collective can adapt accordingly and, according to our research, earn more respect as a result. So how can this ability to see the forest for the trees be applied by leaders?

HE RESENDED HIS WORD AND SENT HIS OFFICERS TO BRING THE ISREALITES BACK INTO  CAPTIVES AGAIN AS SLAVES AFTER HE FREED THEM. IN THE PROCESS OF DOING SO ALL THE OFFICERS  THE GREAT PHAROAH SENT OUT DIED IN BATTLE SO TO SPEAK. THAT IS WHY OBEDIENCE TO GOD IS IMPORTANT!

This iactually the second article of a series . This is a  word used frequently, but it's definition varies.  I  think rigor need to also differentiate , say, reading levels so each learner is challenged from the level they are currently at. Rigor does not mean, "one size fits all!"

6 Things Wise Leaders Do To Engage Their Employees

6 Things Wise Leaders Do To Engage Their Employees | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it
An article in the New York Daily News reports that nearly 70% of U.S. employees are miserable at work. According to the story, research conducted by the Gallup Poll suggests that the majority of American’s dislike or feel disengaged on the job. Needless to say, this is disturbing news. It’s also an indicator that leaders are having trouble finding ways to stimulate engagement with today’s employees – a workforce that is much more diverse and younger than ever before. Many corporations are experiencing transformation mode, where leadership is about enabling the full potential in others. It’s about allowing employees to be their authentic selves so they can leverage their strengths and unique perspectives.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 28, 4:43 PM

Great teachers empower their students to engage with the content.  These classrooms can often appear noisy as students discuss and argue, get excited and share.  Our traditional teacher observation and evaluation instruments undermine real great teachers. These instruments often focus on what the TEACHER IS DOING not on what the students are doing. Administrators are often looking for teachers who are directing the learning, standing in the front of an orderly classroom talking and asking questions. Teachers who are on the side, guiding and facilitating are often marked down because administrators do not observe the behaviors of the checklist.  We need to change the way teachers are observed - and the feedback they receive - from the administrators that determine their contracts.  We need to find ways to encourage our REAL GREAT TEACHERS.

These strategies are the essential foundation of what all good teachers do.  Every article and book that I have read about school improvement and effective teaching seems for focus on these same strategies.  We know it...but do we do it?  WITH FIDELITY?  I think that is often where it breaks down. These strategies need to be a part of EVERY lesson...EVERY day. They become highly effective when they are implemented consistently and intentionally.  With all teachers are required to do, it is easy to lose focus on intentionally using these effective strategies.

This is probably the best resource I have found for a pre-service and graduate teacher. As the title says it outlines the top ten evidence based teaching strategies and clearly describes each strategy and how and why they are effective. Very useful resource!.

Which of these strategies could you incorporate into your therapeutic groups?  How do you think they might be helpful? 

 

When you observe students in classrooms, do you see evidence of these practices?

Coaching is a difference-maker in education.  Think of the mindset evident in high-performing athletic teams, chess teams, even actors and other entertainers. Content providers are valuable, but that is not what makes learning organizations distinct, especially not those that seek to reach and provide a high-quality education to a full spectrum of learners.

.

The same thing is true as we continue to implement things like competency-based education models. Many celebrate the way CBE can reduce the cost of college degrees, increasing access and opportunity, and addressing critical workforce needs. However, if cost reduction happens at the expense of great coaching and mentoring, I am concerned that we will make little progress in the democratization of education.

.

The “haves and have nots” of education depend largely upon the prerequisite skills needed to take advantage of newer and emerging learning environments ranging from CBE to MOOCs, self-directed learning to self-organized learning environments....
