To Improve School Climate, Examine Recess

To Improve School Climate, Examine Recess | Education News | Scoop.it

As we look at ways to create environments that allow teaching and learning to thrive, it's time to take a long, hard look at the critical role of recess in our schools. Recess has the potential to transform schools, and groups are finally speaking out about the powerful role it has in the school day, including the American Academy of Pediatrics which, earlier this year, released a policy statement to this effect.

Ariana Amorim's curator insight, August 26, 2013 6:29 AM

"Here are some research-based suggestions for school leaders on how to start cultivating a positive school climate:

1) Assess the current climate. 

2) Create a shared vision—but start with personal visions.

3) Work together to carry out the shared vision—and make it fun!"


I think these are also good tips  to create a positive work climate in organizations. A positive work climate it's the real key to Organizational Success.

Greater Good workshop schools educators in social-emotional learning | Education News | Scoop.it
The Greater Good Science Center's inaugural summer institute last week drew some 60 teachers and administrators eager to explore the science and practice of social-emotional learning.

 

Mindfulness, empathy and resilience were just some of the topics unpacked at UC Berkeley last week as teachers, administrators, counselors and other pre-K-through-12th-grade professionals came together for a six-day workshop exploring social-emotional learning in the classroom.

 

Organized by the campus’s Greater Good Science Center —  which researches the neuroscience, psychology and sociology of well-being — the inaugural Summer Institute for Educators welcomed some 60 education professionals from California, across the nation and countries including Argentina, Australia, China and India.

Erin Larcey's curator insight, December 8, 2013 2:33 PM

This article reviews a workshop for educators to learn how to incooperate social and emotional elarning in their classrooms. A strong focus in this article is that "there is a very strong relationship between social-emotional learning and cognitive development and performance" . I think that this is a crutial idea that needs to be addressed in c lass rooms. If we fail to acknowledgethat there is a connection between social-emotional learning and cognitive development and performance, it good negatively impact our students capability to learn. Students must feel that they are safe and can trust the environment they are in or they will be unable to connect and learn what we want them to. Students are distracted by any inequillibrium that they feel whether its a sense of discomfort or not understanding a certain concept. They then are focused on setting things straight and finding a spot of equilibrium. Once they are able to find such a place they can focus on other things. As teachers we can help them to find equilibrium by creating a safe and comfortable environment. We can also create a feelings that we as adults are trust worthy and are willing to help them with any discomfort or uneasiness. Through these programs teachers can learn different techniques to incooperate in their classrooms to help the students feel at ease. I think that the fact that we as educators and as a society are acknowledging that students learn more than just the content is the most important piece. Education has in the past ingored this important fact, but it is becoming more and more apparent. Maybe they didn't actively ignore this aspect of schools and educations, but it wasn't actively supported. Now that emotional and social learning is being actively supported, students' development will greately benefit from such programs.
