A bit of a edu-tisement for U.F. but this graphic has a ton of info points on music and it's value in learning.

Terry Doherty's curator insight, July 1, 2014 12:44 PM

The bottom line is that U of F wants you to think about being a music educator. I really focused on the research about how music helps with language skills.

Sharla Shults's insight:

I have to smile at this one because of recurring question during my own classroom experiences..

 

Student: Think? I have to think about it? Just show me how to get the answer!

 

There is no quick response, no pat answer that will fit all situations. Maybe with the advancements in technology, thinking will not be an option but a natural process.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Integrating technology in your teaching requires beforehand planning and structuring. It also predisposes the existence of a set of learning goals you  want to achieve through the integration of this technology in the class. So, the process is highly structured and pre-arranged and nothing is left for " happy accidents ".

I think many teachers struggle to truly integrate technology into their classrooms. I believe their is the common misconception that if you are 'using' technology you are integrating it into your teaching and learning. However there is a difference between the two.

Does it pay to know your type?

Does it pay to know your type? | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

In this infographic, you'll get an overview of the 16 types to give a sense of how these bigger-than-life personalities fit in the Myers-Briggs philosophy. The official test is based on Carl Jung’s work in psychological typology.

Interesting infographic on MB types from the Washingtop Post

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, April 28, 2013 9:14 AM

Well, the first claim that the unknown writer makes (no by-line attributed), that universities spend "millions of dollars" each year giving this personality test to their students, is just buncomb: a succinct fairly accurate version of Myers-Briggs is online for free, and that's what we ask students to take.  No one pays for the personality indicator except by means of time to take it and internet connectivity.

 

We then ask the students to write reflections of whether this type suits them or not, and what that means in terms of their study habits and needs. So students are not asked to conform to their types, as this article wants its readers to do; they are asked instead to analyze their typology for accuracy and helpfulness in understanding themselves and their type's relationship to their areas of study.

 

As for the "infographic," I've worked with students to analyze, as a survey, the questions and results of Myers-Briggs in argument classes before, and there's no doubt that the questions asked lead to the answers given.  So it's kind of bizzare that someone *ascribed* types to historical figures who never took the test (or if they did, never made their types known) and then show these figures as "typical" of the types.

 

I personally come up with two of my letters always changing back and forth (INTJ?  ENTP? INTP?  ENTJ?).

 

This "article" is misleading and silly.  In fact, I'll bet that many of these people actually did take the Myers-Briggs: the test was invented back in the '20s and '30s by a mother and daughter who wanted the daughter to marry, knowing what the man was really like.  Actually published in 1943, it was a standard psychological tool for many years; anyone who had psycological counseling in the '60s and '70s probably took it. 

 

So these unnamed writers of this article might do well to search archives and see if any of their reported personalities ever actually took the test.

 

But wait -- that would be real journalism.

Sorry.

Most interesting infographic! Color plays an important role in our daily lives. I found this intriguing because of the companies depicting their dominant color in advertising. Red is one of my favorite colors but I hate McDonald's and Toyota would not be my car of choice. Blue is my fondest color but I hate Pepsi! Of course, as for McDonald's and Pepsi, it is all about taste, not color at all.

 

I found it also interesting that most of the social media sites have logos predominantly blue, i.e., Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Skype, vimeo, flickr.

Bullying can affect everyone—those who are bullied, those who bully, and those who witness bullying and is linked to many negative outcomes. Take children's complaints of bullying seriously, whether at school, on the playground, in the park, on the Internet. Probing a seemingly minor complaint may uncover more severe grievances. Children are often afraid or ashamed to tell anyone that they have been bullied, so listen to their complaints!
