Nice slides with good advice for moving learners away from school assignments towards more modern, personal and engaging talks.  "Beware the first idea that pops into your head" is my favourite of the 52 tips, which include some psychobabble but otherwise solid advice and concrete suggestions. 

Sylvain Briol's curator insight, January 22, 2013 2:52 AM

I guess it's an art, in a way ^^

In this episode, we finish our interview with Audrey Watters. Lindsay Clandfield (our interviewer) and Audrey talk about the 'monstrous' ideas in edtech that refuse to go away, about the history of teaching machines and finally about whether or not there is an edtech equivalent of the military industrial complex in the United States and worldwide.

6 Powerful tools to curb your procrastination - Daily Genius

6 Powerful tools to curb your procrastination - Daily Genius | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

If you’ve never found yourself procrastinating on the internet, then you’re either a bionic super-human or you’ve never used the internet. For the rest of us, we can either choose to completely fall victim to all the shiny things on the internet or find a different way to help us focus on what needs to get done. Luckily, you and I aren’t the only ones who have had this issue, so some friendly folks at many different corners of the internet have made some apps and browser extensions to help us out.

How to Handle Stress in the Moment - Harvard Business Review via @larryferlazzo

How to Handle Stress in the Moment  - Harvard Business Review via @larryferlazzo | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

"You hear a lot of advice about how to reduce stress at work. But most of it is about what to do over the long term — take up yoga, eat a healthy diet, keep a journal, or get more sleep. But what do you do when you’re overcome with stress in the moment — at your desk, say, or in a meeting? Perhaps you’ve heard bad news from a client or were assigned yet another project. How can you regain control?"

Good teaching and pedagogy is all about relating to the students and curricula. It is invitational work that allows teachers and students to meet in spaces between each other.
