It's more like a roller coaster than an afternoon stroll.
I sometimes say, "I really enjoy writing fiction," when what I really mean to say is, "I love writing fiction." There's a difference. As much as I love writing, I don't always enjoy it.

Perseverance and Grit Can Be Taught | Parent Toolkit Blog | Education and Training | Scoop.it
The ability to persevere is necessary to develop a mind-set for success because no one, no matter how talented, achieves everything every time. Perseverance is a skill that can be taught. Although most of us learn it through trial and error, it can and should be taught, just like any other key skill or competency.

Persistent correction but no improvement.Confusion about the cause of problems. They don’t get it.Stuck in unproductive behaviors.Lack of appreciation for behaviors that actually work.

It’s difficult for you to understand that what’s easy for you may be difficult for others.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, October 28, 2014 4:20 PM

This article by Ahmed Mori of SchoolKeep is written for educators but applies to anyone in business doing training or delivering online courses. There are great points made here about:

  • your brain on stories
  • tips to take advantage of storytelling
  • and a few cautionary thoughts


Here is what I like about the post:

  1. There is a clear research example given confirming that storytelling process both sensory parts of the brain while concurrently stimulating language processing areas.
  2. That stories do more than inform or entertain -- they stimulate critical thinking skills, capture non-linear situation complexities, and construct new knowledge.
  3. There is such a thing as bad storytelling.
  4. That the "storytelling" of marketing is a misnomer


The only point I take exception to is a quote by author Christian Salmon of Storytelling: Bewitching the Modern Mind, who says that "stories are moving away from being spontaneous cultural practices to methods of manipulation citing examples like George W. Bush, Steve Jobs,..." 


Oh please. Manipulation with stories has been going on for 100,000 years. Think the Crusades, the European witch hunts, the Holocaust, etc. But also think of Winston Churchill, Gandhi, and Christ. That's why we need to get really smart about storytelling -- both as storytellers and listeners.


And storytelling remains just as spontaneous as it ever was, thank you very much!


OK -- off to my accountant's office. While I'm gone, go read this really good article and I'll post my next article + review tomorrow.

Point 2, they cannot read as fast as their peers, is also part of the diagnostic process. Does it make sense that the ability to read is based on speed? What happened to enjoying and whiling over the the worth of something worth reading?

Stereotypes and generalizations are just plain lazy. Do the work to understand how people behave, what the want (in reality, not what they say they want), how they react, and stop playing to the stereotypes you may have fallen into.

The names of those involved in the foundational thinking behind experiential learning is impressive i.e. Dewey and Piaget. As well, Montessori's name might be added to the list.

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED | Education and Training | Scoop.it

"Is your capacity for learning is fixed or fluid? Can you improve your intelligence and talents through hard work and practice, or are you stuck with the brains you’ve got? Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says most of us have either a “fixed” or “growth” mindset when it comes to learning. Most of us can get through sixteen years of schooling regardless of which mindset we have, but when it comes to lifelong learning–learning for the sake of learning, without outside pressure–only a growth mindset will cut it."
