Cultural Intelligence: The Key to Global Leadership

 

We live and work in a world that is an integrated entity, increasingly influenced by external cultural factors. For those in leadership positions it is now not only necessary to have a high IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence), but strong Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is also increasingly regarded as a necessary skill to succeed in today's global business community.

Something to consider for those who use UDL for lesson or unit planning.

Sophie Charlotte Foster's curator insight, October 8, 2013 4:00 PM

This article describes how students and learners with dyslexia are able to be assisted in reading format and content due to a new technological font having been invented, which is designed to stop readers from jumbling, mirroring or mixing up letters which results in slow reading as well as difficult reading/learning. It also discusses the lack of knowledge about dyslexia and about potential funding in Kenya to help underprivileged families, with children who have dyslexia, to receive help financially in assisting their child in overcoming dyslexia and helping their learning experience improve.

Social Connection Makes a Better Brain

Social Connection Makes a Better Brain | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
Recent trends show that people increasingly value material goods over relationships—but neuroscience and evolution say this goes against our nature.

 

Lieberman’s new book Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect hits the shelves this month. It’s a book about relationships and why relationships are a central—though increasingly absent—part of a flourishing life. Lieberman draws on psychology and neuroscience research to confirm what Aristotle asserted long ago in his Politics: “Man is by nature a social animal … Anyone who either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need to, and therefore does not partake of society, is either a beast or a god.”

For Teenage Brains, the Importance of Continuing to Learn Deeply

For Teenage Brains, the Importance of Continuing to Learn Deeply | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
It used to be that neuroscientists thought smart people were all alike. But now they think that some very smart people retain the ability to learn rapidly, like a child, well into adolescence.

 

“Until adolescence there are lots of new connections being made between neurons to store patterns and information collected from the environment,” Brant says.

 

The brain adds many synapses in the cortex. This comes at a time when the brain is especially responsive to learning. This is typically followed by cortical pruning in adolescence, as the brain shifts from hyperlearning mode.

Hewitt agrees: “The developing brain is a much more flexible organ than the mature brain.”

 

Learning doesn’t stop at adolescence, of course, but the “sensitive period” — where the brain is hyperlearning mode — does appear to come to an end. Learning new things gets harder.

For some reason, as kids get older, they no longer 'think that thinking' is important! They don't want to think; instead, they simply just want the answer.
