Why You Need Emotional Intelligence to Succeed | EQ | eSkills | Quest-Based Learning | Scoop.it
Emotional intelligence is the "something" in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence consists four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.

EM Matthews's curator insight, June 20, 2015 6:01 AM

EQ is easily one of the most necessary, yet under-sought character skill sets for effective leadership and management! EQ was once the result of years of trial and error regarding effective social interactions. As the article suggests we all have the capacity for EQ, the challenge rests, however in actively nurturing (through targeted practice) our efforts at successfully employing and improving our EQ abilities, or characteristics.

Chris Carter's curator insight, June 22, 2015 11:56 PM

Albert Einstein once said, "If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes." That is time management.

SBESSCPA's curator insight, August 5, 2015 11:52 AM

 

We all fall into bad habits and many of these bad habits cause us to make ineffective use of our allocation of work time. If you know you need to be a more effective time manager, and you are prepared to address your bad habits and adopt new ones for the sake of your personal effectiveness, then this good article is what you need as a starting point for a better future.

Questions to Ask Oneself While Designing Learning Activities | Design | Learning To Learn | Quest-Based Learning | Scoop.it

Jackie GERSTEIN: I absolutely love planning lessons from scratch.  I just got a job teaching technology units for a summer camp for elementary age students. I can design and teach whatever I want – planning for a different theme each week. Some of the themes I am planning are: Expanding and Showing Your Personal Interests Through Blogging, Photos, and Videos; Coding and Creating Online Games; Tinkering and Making – Simple Robotics; Hacking Your Notebook; and Creating Online Comics, Newspapers, and Magazines.  I have begun the process of planning these classes through reflecting on what the lessons will look like.

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology | Quest-Based Learning | Scoop.it
Informational technology needs to be holistically integrated into our learning environments.

The integration of information technology into our unique learning environments can be greatly enhanced if we apply constructivist approaches. Such approaches could include, but are not limited to discovery learning, inquiry based learning, play-based learning and making. But they also include listening, reflecting, and taking the time to process. Essentially, we want our learners to become great thinkers. We want learners to take an active role in the learning process and move away from the passive regurgitation of information being passed from a teacher to a student. Effective infusion of information technology into our learning environments is an excellent way to achieve this.

In our world, information technology is not just a means to an end. It more about the information and how we use it that is the most important. How to find it, how to process it, how to use it, and how to build on it. The technology we use facilitates and re-shapes this use of information in many new ways. For instance, no longer are we following learning in a linear fashion, say, based on a textbook. Rather, we are working in flexible frameworks where learners can focus on big ideas, but follow their learning along multiple paths happening all at once in the learning environment.

Changing the Mindset of Education: Every Learner is Unique | eSkills | Growth Mindset | Quest-Based Learning | Scoop.it
Stanford researcher Carol Dweck, in studying motivation and perseverance, found that children can be separated into two categories: those with a fixed mindset believe that their successes are a result of their innate talent or smarts; and those with a growth mindset believe that their successes are a result of hard work.

 

Children with a growth mindset see intelligence as something that can be cultivated: the more learning they do, the smarter they become. Those with a fixed mindset see themselves as either smart or not smart and believe that their intelligence cannot grow; no matter how hard they work. When children with fixed mindsets fail, they feel trapped and start thinking that they must not be as talented or smart as their peers.

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching | Quest-Based Learning | Scoop.it

Creativity is about fresh thinking. It doesn’t have to be new to the whole of humanity— though that’s always a bonus— but certainly to the person whose work it is. Creativity also involves making critical judgments about whether what you’re working on is any good, be it a theorem, a design, or a poem. Creative work often passes through typical phases. Sometimes what you end up with is not what you had in mind when you started. It’s a dynamic process that often involves making new connections, crossing disciplines, and using metaphors and analogies. 

.

Being creative is not just about having off-the-wall ideas and letting your imagination run free. It may involve all of that, but it also involves refining, testing, and focusing what you’re doing. It’s about original thinking on the part of the individual, and it’s also about judging critically whether the work in process is taking the right shape and is worthwhile, at least for the person producing it.
