Are we too quick to cry 'bully'?

Are we too quick to cry 'bully'? | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it
Some educators and researchers that the "bullying" has been overused and abused, watering down its true, very serious meaning.

 

Every parent, teacher and child knows the word: "bullying." But this month, as schools and communities launch fresh campaigns around National Bullying Prevention Month, some are urging more precise use of the B-word.

"Bullying," some researchers say, has been misused and abused in the last few years -- too casually uttered about every hurt, slight and fight, too frequently used in place of "teasing" or "fighting," too often brought up before there's proof it happened.

The very word, some say, has been bullied.

The interchangeable parts is the one that stood out for me. It does not mean we are disposable, rather it means we have flexibility and can move into the foreground and background as necessary.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 29, 2013 6:31 AM

(From the article): Look, as a leader, you set the tone for how your employees experience large-scale change. You could be the one that enables fearless (but informed) innovation and experimentation – or you can be the one holding up the instruction book saying, “That’s not how we do it.” The choice is yours.

Giving Students a Choice in Assignments Can Boost Creativity and Motivation | Faculty Focus

Giving Students a Choice in Assignments Can Boost Creativity and Motivation | Faculty Focus | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

Teaching to students’ strengths and interests can promote creative and critical thinking. But requesting creative responses often engenders the exact opposite of creativity. “Just tell me what you want me to do and I’ll do it.” “How many words does it need to be?” “What should I write about to get a good grade?” “I’m not creative.” Often these comments are accompanied with sighs, groans, or no responses at all (in the case of online students), indicating just how much students resist when asked to be creative. And these responses are even more prevalent in required and prerequisite courses. So how do we overcome the resistance and encourage creative ideas and thinking from our students?

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

10 Expectations Learners Have!

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, May 14, 2013 7:03 AM

Learners' expectations constitute the new "rules of engagement" in the relationship that young people want with their schools. Consider these expectations and then have an open dialogue on how you can create "learner-centered" environments where these expectations could be realized for the learners in your school.

Vicki Butler's curator insight, May 14, 2013 8:58 AM

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 15, 2013 8:13 AM

I liked this. It was an opportunity for me to listen to the learner point of view. The 10 expectations are relevant at any level but these are particularly important at the secondary and college level in my view. These expectations also speak to how on line and blended learning environments will or will not connect to learners. well worth 4 minutes!-Lou

 

Excerpt from the decription on YouTube:" We hear often of the "high expectations" schools must have of and for their students, yet we seldom hear of the expectations students have of their schools. Students' expectations constitute the new "rules of engagement" in the relationship that young people want with their schools."

REVIEW: Invent To Learn by Sylvia Libow Martinez and Gary Stager (EdSurge News) | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

by Peter Kaminski

 

"Okay, I confess: I love this book. 

 

"Invent to Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroomby Sylvia Libow Martinez and Gary Stager, does a fantastic job of laying out the pedagogical underpinnings for why "making" has a place in school.

 

"In their readable, down-to-earth style, Martinez and Stager provide a rich history of why making activities not just belong in school but are the root of genuine learning: "The maker movement may represent our best hope for reigniting progressive education," they write."

An Intriguing Participation Policy | Faculty Focus

An Intriguing Participation Policy | Faculty Focus | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

I was looking at participation policies in a collection of syllabi this week. I wouldn’t give most of them high marks—lots of vague descriptions that don’t functionally define participation and then prescribe instructor assessment at the end of course with little or no mention of criteria. But I’ve voiced my concerns about participation policies previously, so I won’t do again here. Instead, what I would like to share with you is a policy that’s impressive in its specificity and in the intriguing idea it contains.
