Use the Power of Habits to Build Routines Until They Are Automatic

Use the Power of Habits to Build Routines Until They Are Automatic | DEEPER Articles for Student Reading | Scoop.it
You are what you do every day. Simply put, the habits of an excellent educator are that they have positive habits, and students are usually the central focus. When I become intentional about my own habits, I level up my performance. The Power of Habit says that habits power excellence. Taking this to heart, I’ve used apps like 30/30 to build routines until they are automatic.

Today's classroom may be "the quiet kid's worst nightmare."

Today's classroom may be "the quiet kid's worst nightmare." | DEEPER Articles for Student Reading | Scoop.it
"Whoever designed the context of the modern classroom was certainly not thinking of the shy or quiet kids," said Robert J. Coplan, a psychology professor and shyness expert at Carleton University, in Ottawa, Canada. With often-crowded, high-stimulation rooms and a focus on oral performance for class participation, he said, "in many ways, the modern classroom is the quiet kid's worst nightmare."
Susan Cain, the author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, published by Random House this year, argues that such children often stop learning when they feel emotionally threatened in a class environment in which being an extrovert is considered the norm.
"There is too often a tendency to see it as inferior or even pathological," Ms. Cain said, "so teachers feel they have to turn the introvert into an extrovert."

Rural Illinois High-Schoolers Become Entrepreneurs in CEO Class | Broadband Illinois

Rural Illinois High-Schoolers Become Entrepreneurs in CEO Class | Broadband Illinois | DEEPER Articles for Student Reading | Scoop.it

Students in Effingham-county’s CEO class aren’t your typical teenagers. Each weekday, often before 7 a.m., local high-schoolers can be found in the region’s fastest-growing companies, meeting with successful entrepreneurs and even starting their own businesses. 

 

Preparing high-school students in rural Illinois to be self-reliant, enterprising and innovative are foundations of the Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities class (CEO), now in its 5th year. The class, open to Effingham county juniors and seniors, thrives on broadband access to connect students with resources from around the world. As an awardee of the Illinois Broadband Innovation Fund, the successful program will be duplicated in other Illinois regions via the Midland Institute for Leadership. 

 

Funded entirely by local investors and led by a veteran, award-winning instructor, the program is offered at no cost to local school districts. Students never meet in traditional classrooms, but alternate between local businesses and tech facilities. Each student is mentored by a business leader and has an opportunity to build a network of new connections throughout the year. 

 

“High-speed internet access is a foundation of this program,” said Craig Lindvahl, instructor and CEO of the Midland Institute for Leadership. “Students, just like entrepreneurs, need quick access to information in order to compete. We want our students to really understand the global economy and realize that they don’t necessarily have to be in a big city to find opportunity.”

Interactive Sesame Street, Nat Geo TV come to Microsoft Kinect...

The skinny: For decades, educational video games have failed to get a rise out of kids and parents; that 1985’s The Oregon Trail is still the genre’s most well-known is telling. You could say that Microsoft aims to shake that perception with its two newest apps for the Xbox 360, Kinect Sesame Street TV and Kinect Nat Geo TV, but Microsoft has said proudly that these are not games. Instead, the shows combine pre-recorded videos with Kinect’s motion and voice sensors, and the results are two entirely different tacks on adding interactivity to standard TV series.
