Odile Dupont's curator insight, May 6, 2014 3:19 AM

Des idées évidentes mais sans doute pas encore pour tout le monde !

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 6, 2014 12:55 PM

Relationships are at the centre of education. It is no longer teacher-centred or learner-centred. In a sense, teachers and students are learning alongside each other. I am not sure it will always be the teacher leading the way although they have to be willing to know when to let go and when to take charge. Content is still incredibly important in that unless it connects to the lives of teachers and students it is not practical and meaningful. Technology is rarely seamlessly integrated.

Journalists take for granted skill sets that define the profession: researching unfamiliar topics, asking probing questions, synthesizing new information, and engaging publics. Yet these skills also correlate to what K-12 students will need in order to navigate an ever-changing and complex world.

Empathy: the new religion 

Empathy: the new religion  | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Is empathy a good thing? Put this way, the warm glow of fellow feeling suddenly seems worse than useless - a purely unconscious thing, like a string vibrating because another string tuned to the same pitch is vibrating somewhere nearby.


Via Edwin Rutsch
Lon Woodbury's insight:

A valuable relook at the value of empathy, especially for someone that values sketicism..  Some critics seem to say that without rational control, empathy might be the subject of the old saying "The road to hell is paved by good intentions."  -Lon

Who would be the leader of this new religion. This is suppose to be a feeling, empathy would not really be a religion. This would be some type of movement to share happiness in the world. There would not be anything to worship.

From Typical Dudes to Sensitive Men: Gender Dilemmas in a Therapeutic Boarding School

From Typical Dudes to Sensitive Men: Gender Dilemmas in a Therapeutic Boarding School | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
For the young, mostly white, upper-class men I observed, this presents a significant “gender dilemma.” In other words, the behavioral and expressive qualities emphasized in the therapeutic environment clash with dominant notions of masculinity – particularly privileged masculinities associated with control, competition, and toughness that students embodied prior to enrollment in the program.

Are Teenagers Replacing Drugs With Smartphones?

The use of smartphones and tablets has exploded over the same period that drug use has declined among American teens. Researchers say the correlation is worth exploring.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

Mary Beth Fender Hazeldine's curator insight, April 2, 3:29 AM

Teenagers are smoking fewer cigarettes, drinking less alcohol and taking less drugs.  Fantastic news!  But is carrying a Smartphone the equivalent of having a portable dopamine pump to boost your mood through video games and other apps?

As teens become overwhelmed with life, surging hormones and the demands of education they need to realise that true and lasting happiness/contentment doesn't come from anything outside of themselves.

Home-Based Drug Treatment Program Costs Less And Works 

Home-Based Drug Treatment Program Costs Less And Works  | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Treating addiction is expensive and patients often relapse. A new company is offering better results at a price that's lower in the long run — and clients get treatment right at home.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

Drub abuse treatment at home as described here makes sense if the professionals know what they are doing and help build the necessary structure the client needs. But, without that structure and skill, a residential program still might be needed.  That is, provided it is designed for drug addiction.  Many therapeutic boarding schools cover other attitudes and emtional problems but are weak in treating addiction.  That probably was the reason the therapeutic boarding school did not work.  Parents and clients have to realize special schools are not all the same and the selection must be made with great care. -Lon

The industrial-era school day and the agricultural school year need to be repealed and replaced! Where have I heard this phrase? Perhaps if we re-thought, re-organized, and re-ordered our priorities we could better focus students' activities to promote collaborative learning, communication, literacy, numeracy, problem solving,&  team work skills. This would foster leadership, citizenship, character and maybe even the courage to change on the part of teachers and admins. First resist memorization, timed, high stakes testing, excessive homework and grading! The future of our society, economy and democracy are in play. --Lou

I watched our "guru" of all things tech turn the lights off, sit at his desk, blog and tweet, and put worksheets up on the overhead for students. Even with new tools, we teach and learn much the same way we always have, sitting at desks and with a front of the room. Activity is essential in learning and teaching.
