Behavior is an Iceberg

Behavior is an Iceberg | Education For The Future | Scoop.it

What you see is only a small part of what's really there. Like an iceberg, the bulk of behavior's "mass" is found below the surface; it is what gives rise to the part that is visible.  

 

Anne Egros's insight:

What we must do as parents is, in the face of misbehavior, remember that 90% of what is going on is below the surface.


We must look deep to ensure the child is getting everything he needs, for behavior builds from there.

Excellent visual reminding us what we probably should know in our dealings with more challenging learners.

Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, October 15, 6:38 PM

Since most APs deal with kids who have gotten off track, it's important to remember there is so much more to them than their behavior.

Even parents of generally well-behaved children can find themselves at a loss when trying to discipline a defiant toddler or a surly teenager. In this episode, psychologist Alan Kazdin, PhD, discusses corporal punishment and the most effective techniques for getting the behavior parents want.

Gamification of work: beginning results — Global Leadership Associates

Gamification of work: beginning results — Global Leadership Associates | Education For The Future | Scoop.it
The results are coming in for gamification of work for workplace performance.
Anne Egros's insight:

Gamification can only effect sustained changes to behaviour if a) the gamification is for real gains and not just a way to trick employees, b) the games are structured to meet business goals in ways that respond to the complexity of human experience and c) the company can receive the improvements – a good game will not make up for lack of business vision or bad management.

Hypothesis explains that sleep is the price we pay for learning | PsyPost

Hypothesis explains that sleep is the price we pay for learning | PsyPost | Education For The Future | Scoop.it
Why do animals ranging from fruit flies to humans all need to sleep? After all, sleep disconnects them from their environment, puts them at risk and keeps them from seeking food or mates for large parts of the day.
Anne Egros's insight:

 “During wake, learning strengthens the synaptic connections throughout the brain, increasing the need for energy and saturating the brain with new information. Sleep allows the brain to reset, helping integrate, newly learned material with consolidated memories, so the brain can begin anew the next day. ”

Anne Egros's insight:

Many misconceptions about the brain exist among professionals in the field of education. These so-called “neuromyths” are loosely based on scientific facts and may have adverse effects on educational practice.

 

Still, there are some powerful insights emerging from brain science that speak directly to how we teach in the classroom: learning experiences do help the brain grow, emotional safety does influence learning, and making lessons relevant can help information stick.


The trick is separating the meat from the marketing.

How Parents' Stress Can Hurt A Child, From The Inside Out

How Parents' Stress Can Hurt A Child, From The Inside Out | Education For The Future | Scoop.it
Whether in utero or in the household, parental stress can damage a kid, from the genes up.
Anne Egros's insight:

Helicopter parenting or  over-parenting can lead to stress and depression in parents and it is not helping their child develop well

 

Mothers are more prone to have arguments and battles over homework or house chores than fathers. and therefore have more stress, especially with teens.

 

Humans are  social animals so moms should go chatting , gossipping, having lunch with friends or go out with their partners more often to to keep good  mental health and create stress-free environment.

Mobility is not a value in itself: intercultural education resources for mobile students - European Association for International Education

Mobility is not a value in itself: intercultural education resources for mobile students - European Association for International Education | Education For The Future | Scoop.it
Anne Egros's insight:

 

The term ‘intercultural’ is a polysemic term which entails very different approaches to cultural matters within education.

 

Interculturality’does not mean comparing two or more countries, nor learning to adapt to a specific ‘national culture’.

 

Rather, the concept implies, for example:

 

Understanding how different types of identities (eg gender, age, racial, ethnic, national, geographical, historical, linguistic) impact on communication with others;  

 

Interpreting what people say about their culture as evidence of what they wish others to see about themselves, rather than as the ‘truth’ about a particular culture

 

;Exploring the role of power in dominant discourses (media, political, institutional) and reflect on how these discourses affect the way we perceive people from other backgrounds.

Beware the Very Real Effect of Negative Social Connections

Beware the Very Real Effect of Negative Social Connections | Education For The Future | Scoop.it
There’s a growing body of evidence supporting the idea that your friends’ friends wield tremendous power over you without you even knowing it.

Social networks are the groups of real friends that we all share and interact with.
Anne Egros's insight:
Birds of a feather really DO flock together. In the article, the negative effect of social networks is shown with obese people who tend to connect with other fat people on many levels of connection. Emotions are the tools people use to connect with social network friends usually faster than in the real world where people tend to be more inhibited to expose themselves in person. The phone works two ways though and the positive effects of your online friends may outweigh the negative impacts. For example you can join people who have common goals and interests such as losing weight, staying fit and healthy, aging, raising kids or living abroad etc. Social networks can sometimes help you get extra motivated and less isolated. What do you think ?

New OECD study finds that U.S. adults rank low on literacy and numeracy,  However the  economy and innovation capability in the United States are still very competitive.

One reason could be that American labor market is good at attracting talented foreigners, offering them more money than they could make elsewhere.,  This comment comes from Andreas Schleicher, the O.E.C.D, deputy director for education and skills in an article  recently published in  the New York Times: Stubborn Skills Gap in America’s Work Force Published: October 8, 2013

5 Ways LinkedIn Gets In The Way Of Networking

5 Ways LinkedIn Gets In The Way Of Networking | Education For The Future | Scoop.it
So you have 500plus connections with people you don't really know. Is that how you build your network
Anne Egros's insight:


I don't agree with the opinion shared in this article about posting updates and  recommendation to limit the number of people you connect with.


First Linkedin updates help you boost your presence online and build your expert reputation better than any other content marketing tools. Second, when you connect with people you don't know but who share your interests, you increase the likelihood to meet interesting people you would never had the opportunity to meet in real life.


I think you get the most of Linkedin by using their search tools to see who are the players in your industry, specific countries or companies. With group discussions and updates from experts as well as company insights you can stay up to date with new trends and get new ideas.


Being a serial expat moving every three years, I frequently contact people I don't know who live in my future "home". Very often people kindly share their tips. Thanks to those preliminary online exchanges, I have a list of people to meet in person when I arrive in my new place and it is really the best way to find like-minded people and speed-up my network building process.


So, in short, LinkedIn is enhancing my networking capability and get me closer to people I need to know not only for my business but also as a content curator to build knowledge and get inspired by new ideas.

The new global mindset: driving innovation through diversity - Q&A: toward a third culture - EY - Global

The new global mindset: driving innovation through diversity - Q&A: toward a third culture - EY - Global | Education For The Future | Scoop.it
The new global mindset: driving innovation through diversity - Q&A: toward a third culture
Anne Egros's insight:

It’s great to be able to speak Spanish or French, but in a global world, business leaders must learn a new language: intercultural competency.


What is third culture ?  It’s a kind of virtual space that opens up in any intercultural communication between two or more people, where one is trying to adapt to the other. Members of the non-dominant group usually adapt to the dominant one. But when the dominant group tries to adapt, you get a third culture — one that isn’t a hybrid but a distinct culture in its own right. Groups that develop a third culture are more likely to generate a “third solution” — not the one either would have reached on its own. That’s where you find the true value to the organization, whether it takes the form of innovation, enhanced problem-solving or some other improved outcome. The organization gets this value not just from being in contact with others who are different, but from undergoing a process that makes its people more interculturally competent.
