When Students Are Inspired, They and Their Teachers Are Happier

When Students Are Inspired, They and Their Teachers Are Happier | Digital story telling in  EFL classes. | Scoop.it
Happiness interview: Andrew Mangino. By Gretchen Rubin...

 

How can we usher in a new era of happiness (and inspiration) in America's schools?


I had to include this question because it's the one I think about every day!

 

Our team at The Future Project believes that just as there is an achievement gap, there is also an inspiration deficit in our schools. When students (and teachers, administrators, custodians, coaches, and parents) are not inspired, they are not happy -- at least not as happy as they could be! Nor do they learn well; reform, we believe, must be built on a foundation of inspiration. So, we're aiming to bring about the world in which all students have found something that inspires and truly excites them, whether civil engineering, French food, botany, or the Roaring Twenties, and channeled it to improve the world around them. All before finishing high school!

 

Read more, very interesting...:

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, July 5, 2012 1:51 AM
1. Explain. Some recent research shows that many students do poorly on assignments or in participation because they do not understand what to do or why they should do it. Teachers should spend more time explaining why we teach what we do, and why the topic or approach or activity is important and interesting and worthwhile.
2. Reward. Students who do not yet have powerful intrinsic motivation to learn can be helped by extrinsic motivators in the form of rewards. Rather than criticizing unwanted behaviour or answers, reward correct behaviour and answers.
3. Care. Students respond with interest and motivation to teachers who appear to be human and caring.
4. Have students participate. One of the major keys to motivation is the active involvement of students in their own learning.
5. Teach Inductively.
6. Satisfy students' needs. Attending to need satisfaction is a primary method of keeping students interested and happy.
7. Make learning visual. Use drawings, diagrams, pictures, charts, graphs, bulleted lists, even three-dimensional objects you can bring to class to help students anchor the idea to an image.
8. Use positive emotions to enhance learning and motivation. Strong and lasting memory is connected with the emotional state and experience of the learner.

3 Ways to Make Your E-Learning Course Look Like a Comic Book

 

Comic book layouts are pretty popular. And they work well for elearning courses. For one, they look different. It’s that type of contrast that can hook your learners who might be bored with the standard-looking corporate elearning.

 

On top of that a comic-like layout breaks the content into panels which allows you to control the pacing and flow of information as each panel progressively reveals more. It’s a great way to still have the simplicity of a linear course, but make it seem more engaging.

5 Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout and Maintain Good Mental Health

5 Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout and Maintain Good Mental Health | Digital story telling in  EFL classes. | Scoop.it

The Internet's reach is so pervasive, it feels as though it has always been around. The reality is that the web is still in its infancy, and we don't really understand the risks it poses to our mental health. In fact, various experts, such as Larry D. Rosen, a psychologist and author of "iDisorder," believe that personal gadgets are making us mentally ill and are exacerbating other problems such as narcissism, depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Other mental health professionals have already identified disorders ranging from "Facebook depression" to "phantom vibration syndrome."

 

Realistically, most of us don't have the luxury of disconnecting from the Internet, particularly communication professionals whose work depends more and more on it.

 

However, there are various things you can do to curtail the negative effects it may have and prevent digital burnout.

Good design is everywhere: on websites, in objects you use in your home, the car you drive every day. But often, design is missing from the modern classroom, and we think that’s a big mistake.

 

Educators have a lot to learn from the principles of design, bringing strategic thought and creativity to today’s classrooms. Well-designed classrooms and educational plans can have a positive impact on educational outcomes, and it all starts with educators.

 

Read on to find out about the 25 design principles that we think are important for educators to use and understand.

Gust MEES:

Most of articles, blogs and Tweets witten by educational people are showing the advantages of "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) and they embrace very well BYOD, which I do also; but...

 

 

 

There are some more things to consider such as:

 

- A BYOD Policy in the campus, school...

 

- Prepare for BYOD in your organization 

 

Read my complete curation about it here:

http://www.scoop.it/t/21st-century-learning-and-teaching?q=BYOD

 

 

===> Read and learn also about IT-Security, YES that is a MUST in 21st Century in Education, especially when using BYOD: <===

 

http://gustmees.wordpress.com/category/get-smart-with-5-minutes-tutorials/

Did You Know that a Book is also a Tool!?

Did You Know that a Book is also a Tool!? | Digital story telling in  EFL classes. | Scoop.it

Gust MEES: In 21st Century we are mostly looking for online tools and we forget about the best tool we can have, a book! Do you still know what a book looks like!?

 

I read a lot, must have +/- 1,000 books at home, not counting the magazines of different Topics... I am a Life Long Learner (Hashtag #LLL) and it is a pleasure for me to  read a book, especially in summer time... I "eat" them actually, brain food ;)

 

I suggest to you to take a break from Internet and to read some times also a book and to use it as a tool also; thus meaning:

 

Read it quick, make some bookmarking, higlight the interested parts of it... write something (your ideas, thoughts...) close to the parts who made your interest and later on you read the book again, ONLY your personal remarks, highlited stuff and...

 

You will then remark how good a book is as a tool, an "Offline Tool"! OK, you won't be able to resell it (don't think for once at the commercial...), but at least you will have learned something and after a certain time when reading again as you might have a look on it for further researches (brain doesn't memorize everything...) your valuable remarks bring you back to your "old" thoughts and way for further thinking...!

 

My book selection in EN, FR, DE (books I read already over the last 10 years...):

Five million social media users are under the age of 10 years old, and 51% have given out personal information online to strangers. Out of all teenagers, 95% have been online and 80% use social media, where peer pressure can prompt them to post personal information and photos to strangers when they update their status online.

 

===> Only 10% of these teens ever talk with a parent about the internet!!! <===

Students Blogging Safely Online 

Students Blogging Safely Online  | Digital story telling in  EFL classes. | Scoop.it

My students are now blogging online! It’s quite exciting. We started by working through the blogging concept and process using paper blogs and a week later, we put those same ideas on our class blog.

 

But first, we needed to make sure we were safe! In fact, I first had to have multiple meetings with my principal, the technology teacher and integration specialist – understandably so! This is a big step when it’s the first time young students will be putting themselves out there. But I made a few assurances that using kidblog.org would be safe. First, I designed this go around so that all the students’ posts would only go live after I approved them. I also made certain that would be the case for all the comments. In addition, I created our classes blog so that the posts would only be viewable by our classmates when they are logged on. In other words, it’s a closed blog.

 

No one can see our posts, just us.
