Why Empathy Holds the Key to Transforming 21st Century Learning | #EQ #SoftSkills

Why Empathy Holds the Key to Transforming 21st Century Learning | #EQ #SoftSkills | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Like other aspects of modern life, education can make the head hurt. So many outcomes, so much important work to do, so many solutions and strategies, so many variations on teaching, so many different kinds of students with so many different needs, so many unknowns in preparing for 21st Century life and the endless list of jobs that haven’t been invented.

What if we discovered one unifying factor that brought all of this confusion under one roof and gave us a coherent sense of how to stimulate the intellect, teach children to engage in collaborative problem solving and creative challenge, and foster social-emotional balance and stability—one factor that, if we got right, would change the equation for learning in the same way that confirming the existence of a fundamental particle informs a grand theory of the universe?

That factor exists: It’s called empathy.

How are you integrating empathy in your classroom?  What are some of the strategies you use? Why is Serious Game Design an ideal method for developing empathy?

I concur but what do you think?  Why are we so calloused and hard on our approach to leadership?

11 Bad Teaching Habits That Are Stifling Your Growth | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"There’s a certain class of mistakes that all educators can eliminate with conscious effort, and in this post we outline 11 of them. They range from habits of practice to habits of thought, but all of them have one important thing in common: they make your job harder."

For many of us this school year has come to an end or will shortly. Perhaps it is time to reflect on our year and consider habits that might need to be changed. This post looks at 11 habits. A few are listed below.

* Not learning from colleagues. This seems simple, but given how busy our day is it is tough to find time to observe another teacher, or have someone tape you and ask others to provide you with feedback.

* Assuming a lesson taught is a lesson learned. Have you asked yourself how many times you have repeated a portion of a lesson? With the range of students in our classrooms the need to rephrase, review, reteach key points may be more necessary than we think.
* Failing to establish relevance. At times this may seem difficult to do, but for our students to learn we need to make our topic relevant to them. When you are successful with this share your ideas with others!
Click through to the post to see 8 additional habits that you may want to change.

#11 - Not getting to know your students. I think this is the most important tip -- but they're all good.

The power of the Infographic is that it references both teacher and student actions and habits. I have shared it with my teachers. This might become a solid self-assessment tool for coaching conversations with teachers.

The Kozol quotes are so incredibly true. Empathic teaching is about being present without being overbearing and intrusive.
