Kara long's curator insight, April 17, 10:47 AM

This article is about the program called "The education we want: an advocacy toolkit." It featured real-life stories of youths who have successfully advocated for this program.  YAG youth demonstrate remarkable passion, leadership skills, and eloquence when speaking about the barriers to quality education in their communities and in the world. They are able to understand what it mean to be a "global citizen."

Kristin Blom's comment, April 19, 2:56 PM
I found this article very empowering, specifically for youth. Youth from around the world are coming together to fight for education for all kids around the world. It is very easy to take education for granted in America because it is readily available to us. Those involved in this advocacy are true global citizens because regardless of their age, they are bettering not just their communities, but communities around the world. This article was very interesting to me as well, because I think it would be an amazing experience to teach abroad someday.
Candice Blount's curator insight, May 4, 2:17 PM

This article addresses the need for "global citizenship" education past the 2015. The article addresses the need to move away from traditional testing methods as it is not a true measurement of global citizenship. Traditional measurements may stifle creativity and innovative thinking.

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?"

Some wonderful questions that I look forward to answering.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, August 19, 2013 1:36 AM

I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.

¿Hay diferencia entre "alumno" y "aprendiz" y entre "profesor" y "educador"?

Leadership and Emotional Intelligence

Leadership and Emotional Intelligence | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

Using emotional intelligence can help you succeed as a leader. But what is emotional intelligence, and why is it that success in life sometimes seems unrelated to intelligence and how hard you are prepared to work?

 

Dr Goleman describes five main elements of emotional intelligence:

 

- Self-awareness.


- Self-regulation.


- Motivation.


- Empathy.


- Social skills.

 

Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage both your own emotions, and those of the people you lead. Having a high EQ means knowing what you are feeling, what this means, and how your emotions can affect other people. For leaders, having emotional intelligence is essential for success.

 

Take time to work on self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. They will certainly help ensure that you succeed as a leader.
