Educational Leadership:Resilience and Learning:Handle with Care: A Conversation with Maya Angelou

Educational Leadership:Resilience and Learning:Handle with Care: A Conversation with Maya Angelou | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it

I'm not sure if resilience is ever achieved alone. Experience allows us to learn from example. But if we have someone who loves us—I don't mean who indulges us, but who loves us enough to be on our side—then it's easier to grow resilience, to grow belief in self, to grow self-esteem. And it's self-esteem that allows a person to stand up.

Adrian Bertolini's insight:

The building of self-esteem in young people is a developmental step towards knowing oneself as capable and able to belong in a community. The importance of resilience, and being able to rebound from failure and hardship, is critical to building self-esteem.

We have so much to learn from Maya Angelou. Sometimes we need to be still to hear the different messages that come out of the words.

Gary Klein's Triple Path Model of Insight

Gary Klein's Triple Path Model of Insight | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
This article explores models of insight including Gary Klein's Triple Path Model of insight, as explained in Seeing What Others Don’t.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
Sometimes shifts in thinking are not about making minor adjustments or adding details. Sometimes we fundamentally shift core beliefs. This allows us to see the problem in a new way and may lead to insight. We shift from a poor story to a better one. These are discontinuous discoveries.

Learning dispositions and Real Life

Learning dispositions and Real Life | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
Learning and studying dispositions are the filters we use when facing a learning situation. Sometimes these dispositions are helpful, other times they may hinder the learning process.  We "inherit" these filters from family and friends - and media, too! - and learn to use the filters during all our learning experiences.  We sort things into…

One possible answer for supporting deep learning dispositions is to adopt a teaching disposition that emphasizes authenticity and empowers engagement

How Finland’s youngest learners obey the rules — by fooling around in school - The Hechinger Report | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
It is lunch time at the University of Eastern Finland’s teacher training lab school in North Karelia, a lush forest and lake district on the Russian border. Fourth-grade children race to the cafeteria in their stockinged feet, laughing, hugging, practicing dance steps and cavorting as they head for the cafeteria. One girl does a full handstand …

Children’s brains work better when they are moving, the master teacher explains. Not only do they concentrate better in class, but they are more successful at “negotiating, socializing, building teams and friendships together.”

The role of private tuition plays a part in the overall success of students in Singapore, with around 80% of primary-school children having at least three hours of private tuition a week.
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
That’s right. Eight out of ten primary school aged students in Singapore receive private tuition, either by way of private tuition or coaching colleges. So we actually have NO idea of the effect of just the schooling. But go ahead media and government - keep having a go at our education system

Heutagogy and Creativity

Heutagogy and Creativity | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
A review of the research on the neuroscience of creativity makes it clear that it is early days in understanding the neural mechanisms involved. However, there are some indications that provide the opportunity for some interesting creative speculation. Given that heutagogy is similarly based on neurological evidence and is concerned with developing creative learning environments,…

heutagogy recognizes that learning is complex and, consistent with the notion of human agency, is in the hands of the learner given it is entirely an internal process.

Dialogues that enhance learning

Dialogues that enhance learning | High Performance Learning | Scoop.it
Engaging in dialogue is essential for learning. Constructing knowledge cannot occur in a vacuum. Too often we think that any classroom discussion equals dialogue. It does not. Conversation and discussion are very broad concepts to describe educational dialogue.  Debates are very specific interactions for presenting and supporting an argument, a genre of dialogue focusing on…
Adrian Bertolini's insight:
Having a non-punitive assessment system is important for fostering dialogue in the classroom. Risk-taking behaviors are not likely to happen in a learning environment where students get punished for submitting a “wrong answer”.
