How Rudeness Stops People from Working Together

How Rudeness Stops People from Working Together | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership | Scoop.it
Once incivility occurs, it’s easy for negative thoughts to seep into people’s heads and stay there, translating into negative behavior. In experiments I’ve done, I’ve found that once people are exposed to rudeness, they are three times less likely to help others and their willingness to share drops by more than half. It makes sense: When someone behaves poorly or offensively, bad feelings spread and behaviors escalate, sometimes becoming aggressive or dysfunctional.

25 Ways to Develop a Growth Mindset - InformED

25 Ways to Develop a Growth Mindset - InformED | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership | Scoop.it
“This growth mindset is based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts. Although people may differ in every which way in their initial talents and aptitudes, interests, or temperaments, everyone can change and grow through application and experience.”

This is important because it can actually change what you strive for and what you see as success. By changing the definition, significance, and impact of failure, you change the deepest meaning of effort.

In this mindset, the hand you’re dealt is just the starting point for development. So how does this apply to learning and what can we do to help instill this attitude in our students?

Learning in the age of Social Networks

Learning in the age of Social Networks | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership | Scoop.it

Our understanding of how to learn in this globally connected world is limited by our experience of learning. Our formal education has led us to believe that learning is something given to us. We are one step removed from the process of planning and regulating our learning for so much of our lives as learners that we become dependent on educators. We have powerful tools at our disposal and yet make poor use of them. Networks which should bring us closer together are used to divide and segregate. Instead of enhancing our collective understanding we are confronted by the challenges of alternate facts and fake news. We have an abundance of information but seemingly little wisdom and little understanding of who we may trust and how we may find truth.
