Stress and Education - PsychBLOG.co.uk | Fun with Psychology | Scoop.it

"Although stress evolved to keep us safe from physical threats, it is most commonly experienced for social reasons nowadays – work pressure, problems in a relationship, money worries, and so on. Stress is a one-size-fits-all response, rather being tailored to specific circumstances, and in many such cases it can be counterproductive. Due to the physiological processes entailed, prolonged stress can have devastating effect on the mind and body."

Humiliation is No Way to Teach - PsychCentral.com (blog) | Fun with Psychology | Scoop.it

Some people believe that humiliation is a good teacher. You gotta learn. You must not forget. You will be punished if you don’t do it right. Humiliation will make a lesson stick.

 

 

These folks are right — humiliation is a good teacher. 

But the lesson you learn is not what the teacher is intending. You don’t learn to do things better.  You don’t learn to upgrade your skills. You don’t learn to trust your ability to learn.
