46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Moms & Parenting | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...

The Difference Between Praise and Feedback - Mind/Shift

The Difference Between Praise and Feedback - Mind/Shift | Moms & Parenting | Scoop.it
Parenting these days is patrolled by the language police. Sometimes it seems like the worst thing you could ever say to a kid is “Good job!” or the dreaded, “Good girl!” Widely popularized psychological research warns about the “inverse power of praise” and the importance of “unconditional parenting.” What are these researchers really getting at? Are the particular words we use to talk to our kids so important? And how do we convey positive feelings without negative consequences?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 2, 10:35 AM

Feedback is necessary in the growth of children and adults. Sometimes it is praise that is involved and other times it is about correction. Feedback is more than broad general statements about doing a good or bad job, but is specific to the task at hand. Pedagogues, parents and teachers alike, have to be aware that they are not manipulating when they use feedback. The feedback has to be directed towards growth and forming in the human being.

Vilma Bonilla's curator insight, July 3, 6:51 AM

Feedback needs to be practical and useful in order to actually help an individual improve. This takes effort but it shows you care. It is fine to incorporate praise in feedback as well as your perspective on specific areas of improvement. The goal is to inspire and motivate action based on careful observation.

 

Delivering good, valuable feedback takes time and practice. It can be a powerful and influential tool to motivate and inspire behavioral change.
