(Benefits) What is Compassion?

(Benefits) What is Compassion? | Storytelling in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Compassion is the most transforming energy in the universe with everything we all long for – kindness, caring, loving.  It is a courageous state of mind and heart, with far-reaching consequences in terms of how we experience ourselves and reality…

 

Does research supports the value of practicing Compassion?

Yes. Scientific research shows that being compassionate can improve health, well-being, relationships and sense of purpose.

 

Compassion can be cultivated by meditation practice and offers many benefits:

Strengthens brain circuits for pleasure and reward and leads to lasting increases in self-reported happinessReduces risk of heart disease by boosting the positive effects of the vagus nerveMakes people more resilient to stress; lowers stress hormones in the blood and salivaBoosts the immune responseIncreases Positive emotion, decreases ruminationDecreases negative emotions such as: hatred, jealousy, angerEnhances communication and connection with others so better relationshipsMore compassionate people / parents / workers / societies have better social skills, take care of their most vulnerable members, assist other nations in need, and perform more acts of kindness.

Using Scribd to monetise your writing work

Using Scribd to monetise your writing work | Storytelling in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Making the transition from free blogger to commercial writer can be a difficult one though. Sometimes it can come in the form of an offer from a publisher and at others we can generate revenue from including adds or reviews on our blogs. Many may, however, never be that lucky, but if you feel like going it alone and doing without a publisher, there are now many options to sell your work independently online.

This is a cool idea. 

Kobe Davis's curator insight, April 5, 2015 8:33 PM

This article explains the introduction of a FIS book club in British schools. This website encourages students to read through creation of online book reviews. Students are filmed talking about books they have read and critiquing their characters and plot lines.

 

This way of learning focuses on student learning where “students are active rather than passive recipients of knowledge” (Commander, Ward & Zabrucky, 2012, p. 395) and encourages them to “think more deeply about learning” (Commander, Ward & Zabrucky, 2012, p. 398).

 

I would use this technology in stages 1-3 with books that I have selected as well as books that the student has chosen. Students would be instructed to film their book reviews in pairs and then present these videos to the class. The class would then critically analyse the student’s presentation and perhaps take a vote whether or not they would like to read that book. This would allow students to demonstrate their proficiency in Talking and Listening. It would also allow me as a teacher to be aware of the types of books the students would be interested in.

Comprehensive List of Free e-Book Websites for your e-Reader - Good EReader

Comprehensive List of Free e-Book Websites for your e-Reader - Good EReader | Storytelling in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

If you own an e-reader you often can only buy e-books from the bookstore that is bundled on your device. Many of the budget e-readers out there don’t even have a bookstore that is accessible by users and many people are left to fend for themselves to load content on it.

Here is a comprehensive free e-book resource catalog online. All of these books are hardware agnostic, which means they are not locked by DRM (Digital Rights Management). All you have to do is simply download a title and load in via the USB cable from your computer to your e-reader. Many of these sites also provide the books in more than one format, so they will work with your Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Barnes and Noble Nook, Sony e-reader and hundreds of others.

Why Gratitude Makes You a Happier Person

Why Gratitude Makes You a Happier Person | Storytelling in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“Stop pitying yourself, people have it worse, you should be grateful.” You’ve probably heard this before, and it’s some of the most cliché, unhelpful advice around. When gratitude is inspired by guilt, obligation, or shame, that’s not gratitude at all. True gratitude is a practical tool that serves a number of purposes beyond the after school special fluff of being thankful for what you have.

Linguistic Family Tree

Linguistic Family Tree | Storytelling in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

"When linguists talk about the historical relationship between languages, they use a tree metaphor. An ancient source (say, Indo-European) has various branches (e.g., Romance, Germanic), which themselves have branches (West Germanic, North Germanic), which feed into specific languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian).  Minna Sundberg, creator of the webcomic Stand Still. Stay Silent, a story set in a lushly imagined post-apocalyptic Nordic world, has drawn the antidote to the boring linguistic tree diagram."

Sreya Ayinala's curator insight, December 2, 2014 9:50 PM

Unit 3 Cultural Patterns and Processes (Language)

      The image shows how many languages are related and have many common ancestors. Languages are grouped into language families and are even more broadly categorized.

      Language is a huge part of culture and it is the way that people communicate amongst each other. There are hundreds of languages in our world, but as globalization and pop culture diffuse many languages are being lost and no longer spoken. A good example of a dead language would be Latin. Many of our common day languages trace their roots back to Latin, but no one speaks Latin anymore.
