Are you attending to life or practicing distraction? Embracing "gap time".

Video on attention and how "we are" in the world today. 

 

Average number of phone checks:  27 times per day.  We are more distracted and less able to pay attention to anything all day.  Multi-tasking does not really happen:  it is fast switching between two things.  He argues that it is not a good thing for us.  Multitasking is "practicing distraction".  Taking a big break from things that distract us allows us to attend better. 

 

I would argue one thing:  there are people who process everything quickly.  There are pros and cons to this.  But to use his analogy with our ancestors in the bush (multi-taskers would have been devoured by lions for not attending to the bush long enough) I would argue that attending too much without responding would actually be what fried the guy in the bush.  The problem with thinking and attending  too much is that there is a point when you have to ACT !  I see many people who don't ACT enough! 

 

Additionally, while there are many ways this new life has negative impact on us, many have learned to go to the zone to assimilate everything; to see connections between all the pieces you learned.  Creativity requires gap time, yes.  You can live in both words.  But you need to do so with intent. 

 

Practice slowing down with a long bike ride, slow walk, meditation, etc.  You cannot smell the dew on leaves if your nose is on the screen!

Are your students writing for you or themselves? Are your students writing for you or for a real audience? Are your students writing because they have to and don’t know or because they want to and have a purpose? Have you thought about what you are doing to make writing real in your classroom?

Picking the right online tools to meet your the community engagement

Picking the right online tools to meet your the community engagement | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I would emphasise upfront that the Spectrum is, in my opinion, the single most useful tool available for teaching newcomers to the world of community engagement. Its simplicity is, to a large degree, its greatest strength

 

Choices to make: 

 

Informing Decisions– to provide opportunities for the community to contribute to decision making processes.

Strengthening Relationships– to build new or improve existing relationships with the community ; and

Building Capacity – to educate the community on a specific theme or issue to increase knowledge and change behaviour.
