Are our boys failing - or are we failing our boys? Strategies For Engaging Boys in School

Are our boys failing - or are we failing our boys? Strategies For Engaging Boys in School | Library Media Skills K-12 | Scoop.it

More boys are enrolled in kindergarten than girls, but fewer boys will graduate from high school. What happens in the years between to keep boys from being successful in school? Are our boys failing -- or are we failing our boys?

This topic is dear to all our hearts as we see boys struggling with academics.  So who has the answer?

26 Traits of Terrific Teachers

26 Traits of Terrific Teachers | Library Media Skills K-12 | Scoop.it

Teacher Appreciation Week is here, and it is time to give thanks for all that teachers do for our kids. In this post I'd like to take a moment to go beyond appreciating these outstanding people for choosing the noblest profession of all. Sure, teachers need to hear that we appreciate them for teaching kids, but they need to hear even more that we appreciate all the things they do that are above and beyond mteaching and learning.

(Leadership) Best Advice I Ever Got: Make Empathy Your Superpower

(Leadership) Best Advice I Ever Got: Make Empathy Your Superpower | Library Media Skills K-12 | Scoop.it

As a business leader, here are some ways to harness empathy and make it your superpower, too:

1. Use empathy to create your vision.
Empathy is commonly explained by the phrase "walk a mile in someone else's shoes." But it's more than just that. It's walking side by side with someone, listening with intent, and using the knowledge gained to create your vision.

2. Use empathy to become mission-driven....3. Use empathy to inspire loyalty....4. Use empathy as a your default communication tool....

 Based on the work of Stanford University psychologist, Carol Dweck, the idea of mindset is related to our understanding of where ability comes from. It has recently been seized upon by educators as a tool to explore our knowledge of student achievement, and ways that such achievement might be improved.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Library Media Skills K-12 | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

6 Habits of Highly Empathetic Nurses a Guest Post by Trisha C. Fronczek MS, RN-BC, CCRN

 

What I gave all day was Empathy. Merriam-Webster defines empathy as “the feeling that you understand and share another person’s experiences and emotions: the ability to share someone else’s feelings” 


In nursing, we do this a lot. We use therapeutic communication to speak with our patient and their loved ones about their diagnosis, treatment and plan of care. Sometimes it is a blur for them and us. We hope we have given them everything they need to prevent a readmission. Other times, we feel we go over everything twelve times and still a decision or plan cannot be formulated.

Did I Plagiarize? The Types and Severity of Plagiarism Violations

Did I Plagiarize? The Types and Severity of Plagiarism Violations | Library Media Skills K-12 | Scoop.it
Plagiarism is a hot topic in the academic world, but it applies in all aspects of our lives. In a country and culture that values intellectual property, it is imperative that we are conscious of plagiarism guidelines and standards. The reality is, in many facets of life, when we make mistakes, we can claim ignorance. But when it comes to plagiarizing, there is little slack given; we are all expected to understand plagiarism guidelines and what constitutes a violation. While plagiarism is never considered acceptable, there are varying levels of severity with different types of plagiarism violations. So are you wondering…

Critical Digital Literacy Explained for Teachers

Critical Digital Literacy Explained for Teachers | Library Media Skills K-12 | Scoop.it

Critical digital literacy is one of the essential required competencies for the 21st century educator. In an era of unprecedented personal publishing, infobesity (information obesity) becomes a real issue. Teachers need to be able to critically  assess and evaluate the materials and knowledge they come across. This could be done through adopting a critical thinking lens to filter things that could otherwise unconsciously affect one's stance and interpretation of  a given meaning.

Juliet Hinrichsen and Antony Coombs from University of Greenwich developed this excellent framework to help you understand the concept of critical digital literacy. This framework is made up of 5 dimensions:

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, December 12, 2014 12:14 PM

About five years ago, I worked with a large suburban school on developing awareness and teaching/learning skill sets in the area of critical literacy. The nuances of digital and even print text within structure and conventions suggests meaning that extends far beyond the alphabetic word. This framework would have been a helpful tool to ground discussion and build understanding.

Caveats: Students need to NOT be pressured into an economic mold—it destroys motivation , curiosity and love of learning (science shows that these are the basis for life-long mental resilience). People learn at their own pace and have individual processing modes. It is vital for our future to nurture instrinsic motivation in the next generation.

Principals: Are you brave enough to ask for staff feedback? | Library Media Skills K-12 | Scoop.it

No one likes criticism. It’s in our nature as humans to avoid it, sometimes at all costs. Still, hearing what you need to work on is one of the only ways you get better. And if you’ve taken on the incredibly complex and demanding job of school administrator, you probably have plenty to work on. Your staff is one of the most valuable sources of information you have about your school culture, whether students are getting what they need, staff morale, and how effectively you’re doing your job.

5 Steps to Create a Compassionate Workplace

5 Steps to Create a Compassionate Workplace | Library Media Skills K-12 | Scoop.it
A 16-month longitudinal study at a long-term health care facility with 185 employees, 108 patients, and 42 of the patients' family members was conducted to test how the employees treated the patients and families versus their colleagues.

 

The researchers found that there was lower absenteeism and employee burnout, as well as higher levels of employee engagement with their work with greater teamwork and employee satisfaction. In addition, the culture of compassion spread to patients and their families. Then, to see if the same positive results would be found in industries such as real estate, finance, and public utilities, they performed a second study involving 3,201 employees in seven different industries.

 

Again, a greater culture of compassion in the workplace led to greater work satisfaction, commitment, and accountability.

 

...What steps can we take to develop or increase a compassionate workplace?


1. Try a morning ritual where you literally set a positive tone for your day....

2. Look for what you have in common with others today. ...

3. Practice intentional, but random, acts of kindness...

4. Start a gratitude journal where each day you write three new things you are grateful for at work....

5. Each night write about your day....

Study: Physicians' empathy and clinical outcomes for diabetic patients. | Library Media Skills K-12 | Scoop.it

PURPOSE:To test the hypothesis that physicians' empathy is associated with positive clinical outcomes for diabetic patients.METHOD:
A correlational study design was used in a university-affiliated outpatient setting. Participants were 891 diabetic patients, treated between July 2006 and June 2009, by 29 family physicians. Results of the most recent hemoglobin A1c and LDL-C tests were extracted from the patients' electronic records. The results of hemoglobin A1c tests were categorized into good control (<7.0%) and poor control (>9.0%). Similarly, the results of the LDL-C tests were grouped into good control (<100) and poor control (>130). The physicians, who completed the Jefferson Scale of Empathy in 2009, were grouped into high, moderate, and low empathy scorers. Associations between physicians' level of empathy scores and patient outcomes were examined.RESULTS:
Patients of physicians with high empathy scores were significantly more likely to have good control of hemoglobin A1c (56%) than were patients of physicians with low empathy scores (40%, P < .001).

Join a Musical Group

You’re probably aware that music affects your mood. Apparently, it has an effect on how you interact with others too, judging from the results of a study conducted by University of Cambridge researchers....

 

Make Empathy a Habit

So far, we’ve discussed methods to increase empathy for a short period of time. But whether those methods have any lasting impact remains to be seen. At any rate, experts agree that anyone can be trained to be more empathetic, including psychopaths and narcissists.
