Cheryl Frose's curator insight, June 12, 3:03 PM

Transmedia, a broad descriptive word that literally translated means “across media” and encompasses many strategies that transverse industries, is generally regarded as the use of multiple media platforms to tell a story or story experience. Though the word “transmedia” is thought to have entertainment franchise origins, its adaptation for education purposes is both valuable and becoming more and more common. While teachers like Sansing are using coding and programming in their language arts instruction, others are taking advantage of increasingly sophisticated apps and interactive media for classroom use.

David Collet's curator insight, June 12, 6:28 PM

I guess this another favorite topic for me. Imagine using transmedia to teach maths and include cross over language components. After all maths has a language of its own.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 18, 9:15 AM

Transmedia approaches encourage (or even force) people to actively acknowledge and design for a fluid and multi-dimensional, rather than linear, media environment.  For the human brain, stories are not constrained by what's on the page. Transmedia begins to replicate how we think and encourages producers to innovate in each platform to create multiple touchpoints that facilitate our natural ability to imagine, project, expand and experience.

Reflection for Resilience

Reflection for Resilience | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it

 

Resiliency is about handling stress, uncertainty and setbacks well — in other words, maintaining equilibrium under pressure.

 

And in our modern lives, whether we are at school, at work, or at home, there is no shortage of pressure.

 

Maintaining our equilibrium is something, it seems, we all need these days.

 

There is something you can do — everyday if you would like — to help build your resilience, your capacity to weather stressful events.

 

It's journalling.

 

Keeping a journal can foster resiliency.

 

CCL recommends using "learning journals" or "reflection journals" as tools for gaining insight into your leadership experiences.

 

The process of writing and reflection builds self-awareness, encourages learning and opens the door to adaptability.

 

The form and content of your journal is a matter of individual choice. However, when you do sit down to make a journal entry about an experience that has challenged your equilibrium, we recommend it have three parts:

 

 

✤ The event or experience.

Describe what occurred as objectively as possible.

Don't use judgmental language.

Stick to the facts.

What happened?

Who was involved?

When did it happen?

Where did it happen?

 

 

✤ Your reaction.

Describe your reaction to the event as factually and objectively as possible.

What did you want to do in response to the event?

What did you actually do?

What were your thoughts?

What were your feelings?

 

 

✤ The lessons.

Think about the experience and your reaction to it.

What did you learn from the event and from your reaction to it?

Did the event suggest a development need you should address?

Do you see a pattern in your reactions?

Did you react differently than in the past during similar experiences and does that suggest you are making progress or backsliding on a valuable leadership competency?

 

 

So remember, capture the event or experience in objective language, describe your reaction, then note the lessons you might get from it.

 

CCL uses journaling as part of almost all our leadership development program experiences and we emphasize with our participants that learning doesn't come from the "doing" but in the "reflecting on the doing."

Roger Sommerville's curator insight, February 17, 11:44 PM

I find it hard to spend the time on making a journal work. I suspect it is because I have not thought about resilience and reaction to situations. The short lists here provide a useful guide - and by focusing on my reaction I can give my self a chance to use demanding events/situations more productively.

The Awkward 'Privacy Talk' Parents Should Have With Their Kids

The Awkward 'Privacy Talk' Parents Should Have With Their Kids | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
Parents across the world today need to have a new conversation with their kids. No, it’s not about behaving in class, not talking to strangers, or having sex. But in so many ways, it's just as important. It’s data permanence. How we can preserve our reputations in the digital era?

 

It’s a conversation that will look very different in different parts of the world. In some places, kids will have to think twice before posting photos of teenage escapades, given how such photos may look to others in a professional environment even many years later. In other places, kids will have to be careful of posting any items that may “dishonor” them or their family in some way.


In still other places, kids will have to think about whether what they post on sensitive political, ethnic, or religious issues may define them long after they have changed their views.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, March 5, 6:05 AM

We have been having these types of important discussions with our students in digital literacy classes. What is interesting to note is that it becomes a parent piece that often schools have to provide to help them keep up with their children and  the good, bad and the ugly of technology.

 

Noeline Laccetti's curator insight, March 5, 6:47 AM

Data permanence must be addressed with ALL children, and well before the "sex talk" 

Jenny Ritchie's curator insight, March 5, 4:36 PM

New technologies have exposed behaviours of young people which have put their future success at risk.  Are these new behaviours created by the opportunities that are provided by new technology?  Or are these behaviours that would have been typical of young people even without the technologies they use as a vehicle to display them?
