narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 1:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

Teaching Your Child Empathy

Teaching Your Child Empathy | iEduc | Scoop.it
Can you remember a time when you heard a baby cry, and suddenly a lot of other babies started crying? You may not have known it, but that was empathy.What is empathy?Empathy is when we try to understand someone's feelings from their perspective, and then we desire to help that person (Swick, 2005). Newborn babies react instantly to the distress of others by crying themselves. They are still too young to understand how to help others, but the empathy is there.Empathy develops as a child's brain and thinking abilities develop, but parents can have a big influence on the resulting empathy their children have. If they encourage empathy, their children will be more empathic to others. If this is neglected, children get out of practice and may stop being so empathic.image http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teacher

There is considerable evidence to indicate that in schools teachers work closely and cooperatively with each other that students will as well. My experience was there was little of this. What there was were edits about the School manager's favourite fad.

Rikke Toft Nørgård, Assistant Professor at the Center for Teaching Development and Digital Media at Aarhus University in Denmark, practices something she calls "gelatinous pedagogy" in which she tries not to enforce a detailed curriculum from a fixed syllabus and rubric for all students but acts, in her words, "more like a jellyfish that's adjusting to the students, rather than making the students adjust to my teaching."
