Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, November 26, 9:24 AM

I suspect Mr. Campbell is being deliberately provocative in his call for avoiding technology. In reading his post, I think he is really asking for a rational response to educational technology. In workshop after presentation after workshop I have said and heard said that technology is only one of many possible resources that can be used in a classroom and that technology, as with any resource, should be used with intention. In other words, stop scraping your knees scrambling on the bandwagon.


Infrastructure is paramount. Equity is important. Having a plan for data security and data management is, without question, one of the most important first steps. And just because everyone else seems to be doing "it"--whatever the technological "it" might be, whether BYOD or buying tablets or charging headlong into some nifty new technology squirrel fad, doesn't mean "it" is right for your classroom(s), your school(s), your district. Having a PLAN and a vision for how technology might be integrated in your classroom(s) is the most important "it" for technology. And having some sense of how that plan might evolve as technology races through its evolutionary process is even more important. Do whatever it is that makes sense for you and your students, but do it well.

There are many reasons a student can lose focus in school. It can be bad grades that will discourage them to be inactive and to rebel. It can be the environment that can be stifling and suffocating for the students.

How to (Once and For All) Correct Mistaken Beliefs | Everything | Scoop.it

"Often mistaken, never in doubt." That wry phrase describes us all more than we'd like to admit. The psychological study of misconceptions shows that all.

 




The students then were helped ===>  to discard naive beliefs <=== and fully embrace scientific ones.


The key is creating an uncomfortable sense of cognitive dissonance; only then are we willing ===>  to trade our private versions of reality for something that looks more like the real world. <===

What you eat, digest, and absorb affect every aspect of who you are. Therefore it's a no-brainer that certain foods are better for your health. And some foods that you would never think of as fat burning are indeed what they say and they work.

 

For # 3 in this list, if you do eat fish, make sure you are consuming wild caught and not farmed.

Breaks Are Good For Business

Breaks Are Good For Business | Everything | Scoop.it
Leadership- you must talk the walk. There are big benefits to structured breaks. Employees refresh and recharge, they're more creative, focussed & engaged.

Susan Taylor's curator insight, July 8, 9:07 PM

As a leader, what do you do to balance work and rest breaks, and how do you support your employees to do the same?


With all of the documentation out there about the benefits of downtime, many senior leaders don't change any of their practices.  We know that taking breaks is good for business; yet we still resist.  Why?


Peter McKelvie offers us this challenge:  "Take a risk and encourage some down time. See what happens. Take a bit for yourself while you’re at it".  Model to your team that taking breaks are not only acceptable; but desirable.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 11, 12:29 PM

Breaks are healthy. It is actually on breaks from "real work" that many breakthroughs happen. Students benefit from these when done well.
