Inspiring Words & Visuals that Lead to Becoming Awesome

Inspiring Words & Visuals that Lead to Becoming Awesome | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"Michelangelo defines great art. He carves the human form in marble as if it is caught between breaths. Muscles glisten with sweat. Agony shows on eyebrows as taut fingers curl. Oh to live as a master like Michelangelo! We know from his own words his desire to level up...

If you’re great –good enough is never good enough. The arch enemy of greatness is our own complacency. An insatiable desire to innovate lives in the DNA of the awesome. Do you want to be awesome too? How?"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 10, 2014 6:20 AM

There are days when it is difficult to move forward, when frustration has taken over enthusiasm and we may question ourselves. This post is a lesson in inspiration (at least for me) and provides great quotes and images that lead one to think again about how to handle the difficult situations we find ourselves in, be in the classroom or out of the classroom.

The post provides 8 suggestions, and each is followed by a quote and/or visual. Each is also followed by a question.

What are the suggestions? Three are listed below.

* Decide to Level Up. And the question is....What is one new thing I can learn today?

* Take Time to Read. And the question is...What is the last book I read?

* Seek inspiration. And the question is....Where do I struggle to be inspired? How can I inject vitamin B there?

Allow yourself the time to read through this post and re-energize  your spirit. May your day be awesome!

Who better than Visual.ly to share 7 online tools that will help you create visual, be they simple images, infographics or a mind map. This post shares the following tools:

* Canva - a free tool

* Pixlr - a free tool

* PicMonkey - a free tool, but you may pay for additional tools

* Quozio - free tool

* Share As Image - a free tool, but will show a watermark; pay for no watermark

* Skitch - free through Evernote

* Coggle - free tool that allows you to create mind maps

Visuals are a key part of learning. These seven tools provide a range of options that you may want to use when designing materials for your classes (or perhaps students would find use for them in your class).

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."
