Another Way to Think about Learning

Another Way to Think about Learning | Learning Languages made funky | Scoop.it

As we industrialized learning and created schools, we needed to measure the system’s efficacy and each child’s progress. What you really want to measure is curiosity, imagination, passion, creativity, and the ability to see things from multiple points of view. But these are hard to measure other than one on one, and even then, the assessment will be subjective. So instead, we measure what a child knows, and from that we infer that the child has learned how to learn. This is the real aspiration we have for our children: learning learning.

It is a great article to build a lesson around as it's a topic which students can easily relate to and because it explores a number of controversial issues about which students are likely to have an opinion.

Optimism Overcomes Adversity

Optimism Overcomes Adversity | Learning Languages made funky | Scoop.it
Research by psychologists including Martin Seligman of the University of Pennsylvania indicates that optimism is both a natural trait and a learned skill. The executives I interviewed picked themselves up and got on with business instead of wallowing in self-pity, just like Smart, Lin, Garvey, and Zinardi.

Optimism correlates with resilience, strong coping techniques, and a sense of well-being in times of adversity. In fact, productive optimism can be a very healthy leadership characteristic. There are at least six things you can do to promote productive optimism.

Transition from Tradition: 9 Tips for successfully moving your face-to-face course online

Let's face facts. A computer screen offers students neither the warm comfort of peers nor the imposing brow of an instructor to encourage them to show up. We have to manufacture that motivation elsewhere to inspire students to virtually attend class and provide a means for them to be proactive in their learning.

Social & Emotional Skills Paramount

Social & Emotional Skills Paramount | Learning Languages made funky | Scoop.it
There are strong links between our childhood experiences and adult lives. The emotional basis of success should have a bigger role in education...it’s become increasingly clear that social and emotional deficits can trump material or even intellectual progress...When you look over the domestic policy landscape, you see all these different people in different policy silos with different budgets: in health care, education, crime, poverty, social mobility and labor force issues. But, in their disjointed ways, they are all dealing with the same problem — that across vast stretches of America, economic, social and family breakdowns are producing enormous amounts of stress and unregulated behavior, which dulls motivation, undermines self-control and distorts lives.

Maybe it’s time for people in all these different fields to get together in a room and make a concerted push against the psychological barriers to success.
