Mindfulness Technique: The Art of Conversation | Mindful

Mindfulness Technique: The Art of Conversation | Mindful | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it

Mindfulness technique: Five steps to enjoying more empathetic and artful conversation.

 

Conversation in the original Latin had a very broad meaning. It meant something like “living together, having dealings with others,” and it referred to more than just talking. We can learn a lot from connecting to this original bigger sense of the word.

 

When we're having a real conversation we're actively exchanging—giving and receiving—which begins with truly being together.

 

We can’t exchange something with someone when they, or we, are not present. We can talk to them, we can talk at them, but we can’t have a conversation.

"If you're not being heard, don’t blame your audience. Come up with something that engages them more."

The founders and teachers at the PlayMaker School, an all-game based school in Los Angeles, are asking those big, hairy questions that all teachers grapple with. At the PlayMaker School, they're trying to find their own answers through their constantly morphing, complex experiment. Here are their thoughts about these issues, in their own words.

Lon Woodbury's curator insight, June 30, 10:56 PM

In my years in the classroom, it became obvious there is a difference in types of classroom noise.  There is productive noise, and destructive noise, and a good teacher could tell the difference.  Unfortunately, schools that emphasized quiet under the mistaken idea that the room has to be quiet for learning to occur, would crack down on productive noise, squelching real learning and making school boring - one of the worst things that can happen to a teen. -Lon

Maslow’s hierarchy of eLearning needs

Maslow’s hierarchy of eLearning needs | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
Abraham Maslow did wonders for understanding human needs and motivations by creating a simple and applicable scale. After creating his scale, called the Hierarchy of Needs, Maslow himself started to apply his work to various disciplines. Following in this trend, the principles of his Hierarchy can be applied directly to the work an eLearning team performs.

We’ll start by discussing the individual levels of the eLearning hierarchy and then wrap up what it means for you in your position.
