Image of a Child

Image of a Child | Important boiling topics | Scoop.it

What is your image of a child?

How we view children depends on our place in time and our culture. Children have been variously viewed as a source of labour, as the wide-eyed innocent, as creatures to manage or control, and as beings that need to be trained properly to become the “right” kind of adult.

We need to consider within the culture we are steeped the "image of a child" We would probably not be happy about what we discover.

This new website from Jackie Gerstein explores technology use in social and emotional learning. Quoting from the site "This website has been designed to describe technology activities that facilitate social emotional learing.The links in the menu lead to descriptions of the individual activities. They can be sued within formal and inforrmal educational setting. Even though the focus of the activities are on building and enhacing social emtional learning, many can be connected with content standards related to language arts, oral communication, media literacy, and ISTE's National Education Standards for Students."

The website is very easy to use. There is a menu that provides a list of 14 activities, including Conflict Management Strategies Posters, Book Trailers, and Teach Tech to Grandparents. Most have samples of projects. Not all are relevant to all ages but she does state that she has used some with both elementary and college students.

10 reasons your educators (or employees) are resisting your change initiative | Dangerously Irrelevant | Important boiling topics | Scoop.it
Here’s a little something for you to think about over the weekend. Those resisters and naysayers in your school organization (or corporation or nonprofit or …)? You know, the ones that are pushing back against your change initiative? The ones that you like to complain about because ‘the train is moving’ and they’re not ‘getting on board?’ What if they’re right?

ASCD Express 8.09 - The What and Why of a Professional Learning Network | Important boiling topics | Scoop.it

"Members of any profession need to communicate and collaborate with colleagues to understand and improve their skills. Face-to-face collaboration is personal, but is limited by boundaries of time and space. Participants must have a common time and place for collaboration. Digital collaboration has no bounds of time or space, and collaboration can take place anytime with anyone, anywhere."

Shona Whyte's curator insight, January 15, 2013 2:29 AM

Many of my undergraduate EFL students are big fans of English Central, so there is certainly an interest in video-based quizzes as an entertaining form of self-study.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 11, 2013 8:34 PM

If we don't prepare them they'll find out for themselves via trial and error.  It would be a true act of teaching to help them buffer the errors and see farther ahead into their own futures.
