Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 19, 2014 2:45 PM

What a terrific summary article this is about emotions in marketing. It covers not only why emotions work, the author Courtney Seiter also talks about WHICH emotions get shared and why.


Seiter covers happiness, sadness, fear, plus anger and the types of reactions each creates. I also like the charts and graphics she uses to make her points. 


And what I think is really cool is how she shares recent research from IPA dataBANK who validated -- once again -- that pure emotional content wins out over a combination of rational and emotional.


So check out the article. It is well done. If you want to gain mastery over crafting stories with specific emotional content, then this post will bring a lot of clarity to your work.

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, March 20, 2014 10:58 AM

Interessant artikel over waarom mensen dingen delen via internet. Zowel positieve als negatieve emoties kunnen zorgen voor het virale effect. De woede die Wilde Geert momenteel en regelmatig effectief oproept, helpt om zijn dubieuze boodschap verder te verspreiden. Daar komt waarschijnlijk ook het ontzag vandaan als mensen zeggen: "Hij durft het toch maar te zeggen'. Dat zijn mensen, Nederlanders, die hun verstand overslaan, de emotie gaat voor. MInder mensen dan maar? Dat is een heel ander pleidooi.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 20, 2014 12:54 PM

It is an interesting article with neuroscience research involved. It is about the emotional suggestions that our brain makes leading us to share on the Internet. The challenge might be is contributions become Technique and focused on being positive in a contrived way. What does it mean in education?

Changing your behaviour to develop a personal/professional learning network will be essential to thrive in an era of perpetual change.  The old focus on Continuing Professional Development is no longer fit for purpose and this video delivers  advice on creating a network  based on research

CedricBorzee's curator insight, January 22, 2014 5:01 PM

The author points 3 criteria for Learning Networks to emerge :

- user ownership

- user independence

- user self-determination 

 

Then 3 "values" - that could also be defined as "Attitudes"
- Trust 

- Openness

- Integrity

 

Last part is on how to "nurture" the right climate for Learning Networks to thrive.

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | Education Technology | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.
