A New Approach to Education

A New Approach to Education | Education and Training | Scoop.it

There is an active school movement in character education and teaching ethics. But I don't think it's enough to have children just learn about ethical virtuosity, because 

we need to embody our ethical beliefs by acting on them. This begins with empathy.

The key to compassion is to be willing to help the other person and make the world a better place with one's efforts. @ivon_ehd1
Amy Ragsdale's curator insight, August 6, 2014 9:14 PM

From the article:

 

Learning in general happens best in a warm, supportive atmosphere, in which there exists a feeling of safety, of being supported and cared about, of closeness and connection. In such a space children's brains more readily reach the state of optimal cognitive efficiency -- and of caring about others.

Such an atmosphere has particular importance for those children at most risk of going off track in their lives because of early experiences of deprivation, abuse, or neglect. Studies of such high-risk kids who have ended up thriving in their lives -- who are resilient -- find that usually the one person who turned their life around was a caring adult.

Thinking with our Whole Bodies

Thinking with our Whole Bodies | Education and Training | Scoop.it
The the aphorism mens sana in corpore sano (Lat.from Greek philosopher Thales) has come to mean that physical exercise is an important or essential part of mental and psychological well-being. Another way of translating from its ancient Greek origins is a healthy mind in a healthy body. The poet Juvenal used it in a Satire to say that the wise person understands these are the most precious gifts to attend to vs. fame and riches. We spend a lot of time exercising the body, or talking about it, and comparatively little in exercising the mind. The reverse case is also interesting — in Western business culture we spend considerable effort mining the brain and little or none using the body to comprehend, literally grasp. Our bodies have become a transport system for the head. Yet, as any runner would attest, the high endorphin from moving at any pace get

Yet we are the movers and shakers

YES! "But if school leaders and educators in the building truly want to see changes to teaching and learning, they must name negative habitual behaviors, own them, and intentionally make plans to address them."

 

Educators always complain about having a lack of time for planning and collaboration, and that's often true. But now I wonder if we don't use planning time as effectively as we could or if we bounce collaborative planning time because it's rarely been effective for us.

How to Increase an Idea's Adoption Rates

How to Increase an Idea's Adoption Rates | Education and Training | Scoop.it
“Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward. They may be beaten, but they may start a winning game.” [Johann Wolfgang von Goethe] We know from experience that formal leaders influence the behavior of those in their chain of command. CEOs, lead scientists, general managers, and so on. But there's a difference between power and status — some leaders may have status and no power, while others just the opposite. Those who have power and no status may still exercise control over others, as history attests. Without the formal power, status can help us be heard. Enrico Fermi was an Italian physicist at a time when physics wasn't held in high esteem in Italy. The 1938 Nobel Prize winner earned his leadership status through work. His consistent displays of competence, his support of peer scientists across Europe, his sharp intelligence and passion for physics, and some sheer luck, catapulted hi
