Mindfulness Technique: The Art of Conversation | Mindful | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Mindfulness technique: Five steps to enjoying more empathetic and artful conversation.

 

Conversation in the original Latin had a very broad meaning. It meant something like “living together, having dealings with others,” and it referred to more than just talking. We can learn a lot from connecting to this original bigger sense of the word.

 

When we're having a real conversation we're actively exchanging—giving and receiving—which begins with truly being together.

 

We can’t exchange something with someone when they, or we, are not present. We can talk to them, we can talk at them, but we can’t have a conversation.

"Juho Hamari and Jonna Koivisto of the University of Tampere in Finland have studied gamification extensively, and they've found that some students simply dislike competition. "Similarly," Hamari notes, "all students might not appreciate narratives and, for example, role-playing type of interactions."

Yes we know we should be encouraging learners to collaborate but what are the pitfalls and how do we develop their collaborative ability? Some good points here. 

Gust MEES's curator insight, July 13, 2:32 AM

To be sure, some collaboration fatigue just comes with the territory. The reason you pursue collaborative ventures in the first place is because you need to address an ambiguous, highly visible, boundary-crossing issue for which responsibility and control is spread evenly across many people. Decades of research show that these high demand/low control situations are a veritable petri dish for job stress and burnout.

The European Commission Wants High Speed Broadband Everywhere. But Is It Worth It? | Forbes.com

The European Commission Wants High Speed Broadband Everywhere. But Is It Worth It? | Forbes.com | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Here in Europe, we are usually keen to  depict ourselves as a developed, technologically advanced region. We love to quote Copenhagen, Barcelona, Amsterdam, London, as leading models for aspiring “smart cities” of all over world. However, this is only part of the picture.

 

Side by side with the Europe of urban conglomerates and shiny districts, there is the Europe of the countryside, of small town and villages where time seems to have stopped and everything is slower, Internet access included.  According to official figures, only18% of European rural households have access to high-speed broadband.

 

Not a staggering figure indeed, when you consider that over 56 % of the population in the 27 Member States lives in rural areas. Even in cities, conditions are not always outstanding. Investment in broadband networks is falling short and overall only 64% of EU households have available 30 Mbps and just 3% have connections of 100 Mbps.

 

A far cry from the goals set by the European Digital Agenda: to have 100% of EU households with at least 30 Mbps broadband and 50% households with access to 100 Mbps or more by 2020.

 

That’s why the European Commission is launching today the Connected Communities initiative, which aims at identifying and supporting a number of innovative pilot projects for deploying high speed broadband across the Union.

 

The initiative, the Commission said in a note, “will map potential European broadband projects, and identify the most mature ones, which will be prioritized for “technical assistance” services under the Connected Europe Facility (CEF), in partnership between the European Commission and the World Bank”.

 

“Technical assistance”, translated from the language of Brussels’ bureaucrats here stands for help in developing a business model, advice on the forms of financing available, and on the legal aspects involved, especially for what concerns state aid screening, as the Commission has defined special rules to assist in the granting of state aid for broadband in ways that do not harm competition.
