The voices in my head

The voices in my head | E-Learning- A Time for Embracing Change | Scoop.it
To all appearances, Eleanor Longden was just like every other student, heading to college full of promise and without a care in the world. That was until the voices in her head started talking. Initially innocuous, these internal narrators became increasingly antagonistic and dictatorial, turning her life into a living nightmare. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, hospitalized, drugged, Longden was discarded by a system that didn't know how to help her. Longden tells the moving tale of her years-long journey back to mental health, and makes the case that it was through learning to listen to her voices that she was able to survive.
Tracy18's insight:

A great talk. Truly inspirational, enlightening and brave. A ray of hope for all those living with a mental illness.

Tracy18's insight:

Dewy so eloquently considers education and society as one and echoes my feelings on Progressivism "an embryonic community life, active with types of occupations that reflect the life of the larger society and permeated throughout with the spirit of art, history and science. When the school introduces and trains each child of society into membership within such a little community, saturating him with the spirit of service, and providing him with instruments of effective self-direction, we shall have the deepest and best guarantee of a larger society which is worthy, lovely and harmonious."

Tracy18's insight:

To flip or not to flip...allowing learners to guide classroom activity after initial research an innovative approach. I do wonder how we could better facilitate disadvantaged learners who maybe have little or no online access, one possibility is if different groups are allocated to learners every class this would ensure that no student is left behind whilst developing a balanced, supportive, empathetic classroom environment.
