Researchers at the University of Leicester have proven that students assign the most authority to teachers who care about them. If this is true, then you are demonstrating a wonderful principle: that respect comes from kind behavior.

Nick van Breda's curator insight, October 22, 2014 11:58 AM

Interesting article. Reflections…. Self worth and achievement seem to be linked together in most of Western Society. We personalise events in our life and then begin to live from our memories, gaining a false sense of identity instead of seeing it simply as a series of skills to learn. 

Takeaways: 

"people who think about their own learning, make a habit of asking questions, use what they’ve learned, teach what they’ve learned to others, and enjoy the learning process on an intrinsic level all become better learners"

"these are all strategies and habits that can be adopted through practice… The smartest, most successful people in the world wouldn’t be where they are today if they weren’t skilled learners. So let’s examine which strategies we should be perfecting and how they can serve us in the long run."

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Graphicacy: 4 Steps To Understanding An Image | St Mark's Learning Leadership Centre | Scoop.it
Innovative design crosses over all aspects of education. The American Society for Innovation Design in Education, or ASIDE, seeks to infuse curriculum with new approaches to teaching and thinking. Integrating the design of information into the daily conversation is an essential part of the teacher's toolkit and the purpose of the ASIDE blog. The underpinning of innovation and educational design is based on looking at the information available and communicating meaning for a world of learners. Thinking like a designer can transform the way children learn. ASIDE's goal is to bring together as much information, resources and supportive scholarship in one place for teaching and learning.

It makes since that learning is also changing–becoming more entrepreneurial than directly didactic. That is, more learner-centered ... than teacher-controlled."

All this is true  so where do we start?  Children do not start learning when they go to school.  They start learning the moment their eyes open.  Parents can help their children activate their brains and create fantastic neural networks.  All children can encompass all the different styles of learning; Visual:; Auditory; Verbal; Kinaesthetic: -Using touch and taste to explore the information; Logical: a  mathematical approach to concepts; Interpersonal -Learning in groups; Intrapersonal - Learning  alone. Try some of the early learning from home school resources.

Is Praise Undermining Student Motivation?

Is Praise Undermining Student Motivation? | St Mark's Learning Leadership Centre | Scoop.it
The failure of praise
Research has found that praise can actually undermine performance and self-esteem in many contexts. One study found that praise for intelligence leads to the belief by the recipient that their intelligence is fixed, and thus not something that they can influence through action or effort (Dweck, 2007). This is critical because intelligence is in fact malleable, and improved by taking risks. Students grow when they try something difficult that might lead to failure. Because failure is one of the most important tools for learning, growth requires a mindset that embraces challenge and the potential for failure.

I found it to be very interesting and the parameters for praise given here are some good practices to follow when giving praise. It can be done with without undermining student motivation. Don't let "titles" get in the way...call it praise or feedback...we all need and instinctively give one form or the other. Both articles are a great read!

Praise is an incentive. Every one likes to be praised for work well done.

* Understanding Dsylexia

* Identifying Dyslexia

* How to Teach Dyslexic Students

* Personalizing Dyslexia

The resources include videos and articles/posts as well as a link to a great website at Yale. And if you have a student in your class how is dyslexic they might be interested in learning that the following people were also dyslexic: Albert Einstein, Steven Jobs, Walt Disney, Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg were also dyslexic.
