Bilingualism Will Supercharge Your Baby’s Brain: being bilingual improves your level of empathy

Bilingualism Will Supercharge Your Baby’s Brain: being bilingual improves your level of empathy | Education Leadership | Scoop.it

Bilingual kids are also better, says Wang, at “theory of mind” – the ability to imagine what others are thinking and feeling. Theory of mind is closely related to empathy – or “emotional intelligence,” as Howard Gardner put it – a trait that is essential in forming strong relationships and negotiating the social world. Because our personal and professional lives depend to such a great extent on interpersonal relationships, an advanced theory of mind is, to a great extent, a recipe for happiness and success.

The Benefits of Using Data to Bring Mindfulness to Your Work

The Benefits of Using Data to Bring Mindfulness to Your Work | Education Leadership | Scoop.it
Never in a million years did I ever think I would use data and mindfulness in the same sentence.      For the past two months, I've been wearing a rock in a bra, a device called Spire.  You think of it as a fitbit for stress developed by the Calming Technology Lab at Stanford University

wendy beitel's insight:

Got a hostile work environment.  Your boss making vague threats and sending friendly reminders?  Then grab this tool and have at it with the world of the quantified self and mindfulness tracking.  The Spire notes your breath, quantifies it and lets you know when it might be time to step away from screen and breath mindfully before you do anything rash.
