Using Evernote to Confer with Writers ~ Two Writing Teachers

Using Evernote to Confer with Writers ~ Two Writing Teachers | Metaphoric Mind-It's interesting to me. | Scoop.it
Today's guest blog post by Cathy Mere will help you jump on the electronic record-keeping bandwagon. Learn how to use Evernote to keep conferring notes on all of your students.

 

"We learn so much sitting beside writers as they work in our workshops each day.  Two years ago I gave up my spiral notebook I used to keep records of writing conference conversations for a digital system.  Saying goodbye to my spiral notebook with tabbed sections for each student was easier than I anticipated.  The time was right.  More and more often I found myself wanting to do more than record handwritten snippets of evidence, thought, and conversation.  More and more I found myself wanting to take pictures of student work or record student voices.  More and more I found myself wanting to link to digital pieces students were creating.  More and more I seemed to have a device in my hand instead of a pen.  After learning about Evernote I decided to see if I could use it as a tool to record notes from across the day.  I found myself enjoying the seamlessness of Evernote. It seemed Evernote was a tool to allow me to capture the learning journeys of the young writers in my classroom.

 

"To begin I created a notebook for each student and then placed them in a class stack.  Each time I confer with a writer during writing workshop I use Evernote.  Before I begin our conversation I glance through the last few notes, watch the work the writer is doing, and wait for an appropriate moment to chat.  For me, it has worked to create a new note inside the student’s notebook each time I have a conference with a writer.  My conferences are often structured like this:"

If you struggle with providing a steady stream of fresh, relevant content for your website, you’re not alone. Perhaps one of the best ways to overcome this challenge, while also increasing the value you provide to your audience, is through the process of editorialized content curation.

But while we know that this process (when done right) is beneficial in terms of driving traffic, extending reach and providing interesting and valuable content, what does Google think about content curation? Continue reading →

Launching Scoop.it for Google+: authorship and posting to Google+ Company pages

Launching Scoop.it for Google+: authorship and posting to Google+ Company pages | Metaphoric Mind-It's interesting to me. | Scoop.it
While some debate whether Google+ is a ghost town or not, the search giant's social network quietly passed the 1 Billion user mark. That's right: 1 Billion people have a Google+ account which is 2x Twitter's user base and only 15% less than Facebook's. Perhaps more importantly, the +1 button is pressed more than 5 million times a day and 340 million of its users are active.
Scoopiteers didn’t need to wait for those metrics to be public to demand that we add Google+ to the Scoop.it’s sharing options: as our platform is a hub to discover, curate and share content to feed your online channels, it’s natural to offer as many distribution options as possible. So today, after integrating  with Facebook profiles and pages, LinkedIn profiles, groups and pages, Twitter and many other social platform such as Wordpress or Tumblr, we’re excited to launch our integration with Google+ with 2 new features:

This is an unusual post -- but it also reflects a side of business storyteling that rarely gets mentioned. It's the nitty-gritty side of hearing people share their stories.


All compelling stories are made up of conflict, strife, struggle, trouble and the like. It's not a story without it.


Yet the author here reminds us that it might not always be about happy endings -- and this can be just as powerful.


If our business stories are only about the successes or triumphs, are we in some ways denying parts of the soul that inform our humanity? I certainly have personal stories that don't have happy endings, yet they are still powerful for the lessons I learned that I share with others.


Hmmm -- this is a thought provoking article about storytelling. What do you get from it?

The Great Rebranding of MOOCs

The Great Rebranding of MOOCs | Metaphoric Mind-It's interesting to me. | Scoop.it

These arguments miss the point of the MOOC, and that point is, precisely, to make education available to people who cannot afford pay the cost to travel to and attend these small in-person events. Having one instructor for 20-50 people is expensive, and most of the world cannot afford that cost. That's *why* the institutions - from which the attendees of this conference were uniquely selected - charge thousands of dollars of tuition every year.

Yes there has been a great rebranding and co-option of the concept of the MOOC over the last couple of years.

Douglas Riddle shares: 


Mindful coaches perfect a form of conscious and comfortable simultaneous attention to themselves, their coachee, the relationship between them, and the mental, emotional, and relational dynamics occurring in the moment. There are three aspects of mindfulness that have particular pertinence to leadership coaching:

1)      an empty mind

2)      non-reactivity

3)      permissive attention


ozziegontang's insight:

As a Vistage Chair, 27 years in June,  it is about learning to listen, quieting my own thoughts, and asking questions that allow both the person I'm working with and myself to learn something new. We are mysteries that will never be totally known, no matter how long we delve.  We are back to Lee Thayer's: Thinking influences who I am and the habits I cultive. And who I am shows itself in what I do and don't do.  It all starts with how I think. Get that right and life becomes an amazing journey of discovery and creatiity.  If you want to know the future, create it.


It is about being the crucible that if dropped would shatter and at the same time is able to hold molten metal allowing the slag and dross to be cleared away. In communication we share one thing:  our humanity.

Excellent video, Karen. When it comes to marketing and differentiating your offers from all the other ones out there just like yours, the only thing that matters it your story. I coach my clients on building their story from the ground up, so their marketing messaging oozes with who they are, why they are doing what they are doing, and what compelling reasons they should do business with with them, versus all the others out there. 99.9% of small businesses don't pay enough attention to their story - and often hide behind the website or landing page, without making it personal.

Ooh ooh ooh -- this article is really cool! Add this to your arsenal about why oral or in-person storytelling is a higher leverage point than just audio stories.


This article makes the point that reading a story creates more engagement with it because more of the brain and body is engaged. We already know that oral storytelling is a whole brain/whole body experience that often trumps reading. The research shared here has important ramifications for anyone producing content.


The researchers demonstrate that people who listen to stories (like podcasts or books on tape) are more easily distracted. That means your ability to connect, engage, and shift perceptions is compromised. And compromised a lot, according to this research.


Enjoy digging into this research and learning more about how to better leverage the power of storytelling.

ozziegontang's comment, April 10, 2013 8:12 AM
Here's a nice story from the word-detective: The Latin "rubrica" meant "red ochre" (a clay-like soil used in coloring) or red coloring itself, as used in makeup and dyes ("ruber" being the Latin word for "red").

One of the earliest uses of "rubric" in English, in the late 14th century, was in reference to the practice at the time of printing directions for the conduct of services, as well as other instructions and explanations, in red letters in religious texts. These sections of the text, designed to catch the eye and command the attention of worshipers, were known as "rubrics." This use eventually produced two other senses of "rubric," that of "an explanation or definition" and "a rule or custom of conduct."

The use of red ink to draw the reader's attention to important points was widespread in secular works as well, and "rubric" was applied to a chapter title or other heading in a book or manuscript printed in red. By the 19th century, this had produced the figurative meaning of "a designation or category"
