Can We Teach Kids Compassion?

Can We Teach Kids Compassion? | Cuppa | Scoop.it

As a nation of educators, parents, children and their family members – how can we come to terms with that event? Is there a response educators and communities could make that would help us all to heal? And is there a way to reduce the number of people in our world who are capable of taking actions like those Adam Lanza took?

 

These concerns brought me back to the question of whether compassion could be taught. From my spiritual training as a Buddhist in a Tibetan lineage, I knew beyond doubt that the answer is YES. Training in compassion has been practiced in the East for thousands of years. Practices to awaken and strengthen compassion for all beings, in all circumstances, are the foundation of every young monk and nun’s education – and even a middle-class, middle-aged guy like me can benefit significantly from them.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, January 1, 2013 4:36 PM

"In placing emphasis on feelings – labeling them, accepting them and expressing them – you’re showing your child that emotions matter. This is a very important step in teaching them to become empathetic, and have a capacity for imagining what it might be like to walk in someone else’s shoes."

 

Empathy is a key component for healthy relationships.

Empathy may the most vital ingredient in building community and motivation.

Another excellent article about the future of MOOCs. It's definitely a growing business, whether it's internally in higher ed or going corporate. This article also stresses the challenges in providing the same quality content as the classroom experience. Definitely a must-read.

Because A PLN Is a Gift…

Because A PLN Is a Gift… | Cuppa | Scoop.it

 

Yes, I talk about Twitter all the time.  I rave about the people I’ve met. I am addicted to edcamps.  I stalk the blogs of people who inspire me.  I read, save, download, bookmark, and retweet what makes me a better educator.  What is it all about? The people who are a part of my PLN, or personal learning network.  I often say the “P” in PLN stands for “Positive.”  One tweet can change your entire perspective, push your thinking, solidify your thoughts, or make you question something you didn’t even realize you needed to question.  For that? I am incredibly grateful.  The PLN is a gift that keeps on giving. It encourages you to give back just as much. It inspires you to do more, be more, and to never stop learning. So, to every person in the world who has become part of mine, I just wish to say “Thank you!”
