A look at the Reggio Approach

The Reggio teacher is unique because she offers herself to the process of co-construction of knowledge, she releases the traditional roles of a teacher and opens doors to new possibilities. She starts with the use of the child’s own theories, promotes disequilibrium, and helps the child to think about their thinking to facilitate new learning. (Seong Bock Hong 1998).

 "so how do we practice visualization?

As an entrepreneur, author, technologist, and a dreamer, I have taught myself three basic things in the hopes of manifesting my own future:

imagine myself in the final stage (of my goals, my products, my companies, my personal life, etc.).

study patterns (of my surroundings, my markets, my skills, my behaviors, my reactions, my skills, etc.).

practice rituals (to be disciplined about my devotion, to recover from my defeats, to thrive, to achieve a higher degree of confidence, etc.)."

Daniela Bartoli's curator insight, May 26, 2013 3:12 AM

Well, da Vinci's thinking wasn't always perfect... there is no way his tank design would have worked on first application BUT yes correct: the power of visualization can also be known as "moment-to-moment thinking." Just imagine how the project you are designing will work moment-to-moment to tailor it to what could work and how you can make it happen. Moment to moment is just one step in the lateral thinking program which shows how movement is created from provocations.

 

An important consideration with new ideas is not to immediately apply judgement.  Instead of saying: "this is the same as," focus on the qualities that make it different.

Everyone is afraid of getting up on stage and giving a speech or what ever they need to do in front of an audience. These kind of tips are helpful in every way possible especially when someone is nervous. Knowing that we need to just breathe is an important thing. These skills can allow us to get better in our presentations.

Una nueva herramienta para enseñar a programar a los niños y que puedan aprender a traves de la creacion de programas, aplicaciones y juegos.

La gracia de aprender a codificar es que ayuda a organizar los pensamientos, priorizar y estrcturar los procesos.

Si el estudiante logra captar ese orden, sera capaz de llegar a un resultado satisfactorio, casi sin dudas.

Jonathan Climas's curator insight, October 13, 2013 8:12 PM

There are others like this, but the more access kids have to simple programming the better.

Socratic cultures are intense, engaging and driven. They are on a quest to create the best possible outcomes. They are willing to dig deep, take decisions and iterate ever better decisions through the ongoing Socratic method. So tomorrow, when you wake up, ask yourself which great questions you will bring to your tribe that will advance your mission!


Challenging and being open to challenge are key requsities of great leadership! Asking great questions is the start of the process!
