Pondering Praise

Pondering Praise | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

Nice article  by Joe Bower.  Topics include:  praising effort/ability, information vs reward and punishment, why am I smart and alternatives to praise.  As expected, Alfie's picture is sitting there, smiling nicely ("we need to stop saying Good Job).  Lots to ponder.  Thanks Joe!  Sometimes we need a kick to move?!     (pic is my daughter when she first fell in love with photography).

Balancing the Advantages and Disadvantages of Student Social Media Use

Balancing the Advantages and Disadvantages of Student Social Media Use | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

Another great post by Dr Justin Marquis: "There is no right or wrong answer about social media in our  educational systems. It is an evolving method of communication and one that is only more likely to gain acceptance and prevalence. Rather than rail against  it, it makes more sense to embrace it, minimize the negatives and teach  students new ways of engaging with social media, their instructors, and each  other that will support them in becoming connected learners with the skills to  become successful connected workers."

 

Read more on balancing the negatives and positives of social media use for students and how educators can leverage off this to improve student engagement and learning: http://www.onlineuniversities.com/blog/2012/10/balancing-advantages-disadvantages-student-social-media-use/

Leadership: 9 things successful people do differently

Leadership: 9 things successful people do differently | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

If you aren’t sure, you are far from alone in your confusion. It turns out that even brilliant, highly accomplished people are pretty lousy when it comes to understanding why they succeed or fail. The intuitive answer — that you are born predisposed to certain talents and lacking in others — is really just one small piece of the puzzle.

 

In fact, decades of research on achievement suggests that successful people reach their goals not simply because of who they are, but more often because of what they do.

Learning basics of Cybersecurity: Bluetooth technology and mobile phones - the risks

Attacks on Bluetooth-enabled devices can take place within a distance of 10 metres or more. Stay safe by installing firewalls and Kaspersky mobile phone antivirus software.

As many as three-quarters of mobile phone users are not aware of the internet security risks linked to Bluetooth-equipped devices. These risks come in four main guises:

 

- Bluejacking is when anonymous text messages are sent to mobile phones


- Bluespamming is when a phone’s contacts are secretly sent text messages


- Bluesnarfing is when hackers gain access to a mobile phone’s contacts


- Bluebugging is when hackers have access to a handset’s commands


While each of these risks is a nuisance, bluesnarfing and bluebugging are particularly serious. With bluesnarfing, hackers can gain access to stored data, such as a phonebook, calendar or to clone a phone.

“Are we asking our students to collect dots or connect dots?” asks author Seth Godin, who wrote the book Stop Stealing Dreams. In this TEDxYouth Talk, Godin enumerates eight things that will change in the Digital Age. The nature of homework, memorizing facts, and the end of compliance as an outcome, are just a few.

"On January 19, 1963, the New Yorker published a 13,000-word essay, “Our Invisible Poor,” the longest book review the magazine had ever run. No piece of prose did more to make plain the atrocity of poverty in an age of affluence"
