Teachers’ Ultimate Guide to Using Videos | MindShift | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Among all the millions of videos out there, how do you find the great ones? How do you evaluate the quality of a video? Who are the great content creators, and what are the best curation sites? Which kinds of videos work as fun supplements, and which are best for actual instruction? How do you get students engaged in discussion after watching videos? How do you blend videos into your curriculum?

Teaching Empathy: hey, that's networked leadership!

Teaching Empathy: hey, that's networked leadership! | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

 

As I read this article on Forbes tonight, Teaching Empathy: The Ancient Way Is Now Cutting-Edge it struck me that the four things they suggest we teach for empathy also represent network leadership.

 

- Teach listening as a core skill and expect it as a cultural practice. 

 

- Start by being an active listener yourself and give people the time they need to reflect.

 

- Time not made for someone is time wasted.Make dialogue a primary team, group or classroom practice. 

 

- Dialogue opens the doors to exploration—what Peter Senge in his guide “The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook” calls “skillful discussion,” where thoughtful decisions can be made that honor all participants (or, in business, stakeholders).

 

- Identify roles, not organizational charts. When people are able to articulate their role, what they need to be successful and what gets in the way of their success, an empathic understanding is present and the beginnings of a healthy team, class or group takes shape.

 

- Lead with consistency, authenticity and honesty.

 

- Be clear as to why you are doing what you are doing.

 

- Do not lead or manage through personality but rather through articulation. To articulate is to clarify.

The most important skills set for the 21st century is creative problem-solving and critical thinking. Our world is changing fast and the traditional career paths of the 20th Century no longer guarantee lifetime employment or security. Entrepreneurs develop resilience to adapt to changing conditions. And the development of the Internet offers a new generation of graduates the unparalleled possibility of founding a new company with a low capital investment – creating the fabric of tomorrow’s economy.

 

 That will only happen in Europe if our society embraces well-reasoned risk-taking, failure and entrepreneurship. To start down that path, we need to free a new generation of students from the notion that they should follow the dictates of their parents’ generation, for whom success meant working for a large company or in government. The company man and the bureaucrat are yesterday’s heros. Tomorrow’s are the inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs. It is those individuals who can carry the European economy out of its current crisis and into a brighter future.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Podreu descobrir que diuen els últims estudis sobre el perquè el nostre cervell li agrada tant la música.

Natalie Gaskins's curator insight, May 11, 2014 2:18 PM

One day, I would love to venture into the field that connects Neuroscience with Music and that is why this article caught my attention right away. I admit to listening to certain songs and having to completely stop whatever I am doing because it was THAT good. I always wondered why that is and why certain sounds that we hear trigger emotions, or stimulation in our brains. I can agree with what the writer said in that we set up expectations in our brains with familiar styles of music and loved to be deceived when the music takes a different direction.I also agree that it is no longer enjoyable when the music goes too astray from what my brain wanted. It just gets annoying that way! It keeps excitement in the song and makes you try to anticipate what is going to happen next. It is a way to keep the listener attentive. I know that when I song is too predictable, it quickly looses my attention. As a songwriter, I feel that this is very crucial when writing. We have to keep the audience engaged at all times. This is also why artists make certain line-up choices while performing at a gig. I thought it odd that we get a different level of satisfaction when we have paid for the music and are then anticipating the surprise. Very odd. 

I would love to venture deeper into these studies and unlock more neurological secrets. Knowledge like this can help sell music.
