Hip Hop, Grit, & Academic Success: Dr. Bettina Love at TEDxUGA

"This impassioned talk explains how students who identify with Hip Hop culture have been ignored or deemed deficient in schools because of mainstream misconceptions associated with Hip Hop culture. Through Hip Hop, these students embody the characteristics of grit, social and emotional intelligence, and the act improvisation- all of which are proven to be predictors for academic success. So where is the break down between formalized education and the potential for success for these students? Dr. Love argues that ignoring students' culture in the classroom is all but an oversight; it's discrimination and injustice that plays out in our culture in very dangerous ways."...

Can Teaching Kids Compassion Change Culture? | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Hofreuter said compassion training is basically physical and social-emotional intelligence training. The concepts are not new, but they are developing. She said students learn to self-regulate and identify emotions so that, instead of being ruled by them, emotions can be used as guides.

“You say to a child, calm down,” Hofreuter said, “but when do you teach a child what that means?”

Hofreuter’s compassion initiative also includes a variety of methods to learn conflict resolution.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 14, 2:30 PM
I am reading Paul Ricoeur and his phenomenology promotes the idea of imagining as essential to communicating and interpreting. Kaufmann proposed four ways to help children imagine: solitary reflection time, being able to stop something that is not being enjoyed, diverse experiences, and think of each person as exceptional. This applies to adults, as well. If children see adults doing these things, maybe it would be easier for them to imagine themselves doing them, as well.

Students are always excited to showcase their learning but when coupled with using the technology they love this excitement is even greater. In today’s post we are sharing with you a collection of some educational iPad apps to use in your class with students to enable them to demonstrate what they have learned. They can do this through different modes: audiovisual, pictorial and/or textual. We arranged these apps into three main categories: apps for creating posters and infographics, apps for creating videos and animations and apps for creating digital portfolios. We invite you to check them out and share with your colleagues.

This is the question I hear and see most frequently online and at conferences when someone mentions the phrase empower students. 

As someone who just released a book with the title, Empower, I have gone in-depth talking about the differences between compliance (forcing kids to pay attention to our content), engagement (getting kids excited about our content), and empowerment (kids excited to learn on their own).

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 4, 1:36 PM
I think schools where the norm is a culture of having teacher voice and agency exists might stand a better chance of establishing student voice. Otherwise, it is not sustainable. Forming school and classroom norms fit together. Reflecting and offering feedback are part of the agency that comes with voice.
Rosemarri Klamn's curator insight, July 10, 1:24 PM
Organizational leadership and culture are vital in preparing students for the future. Giving children and young adults a safe space for social interaction in morning meetings so that respect for self and others is built early seems like a good strategy if teachers embrace the technique. Another interesting strategy for working on respect and self-respect is meditation in schools, which has garnered positive results in some schools.   This is consistent with new teaching approaches to build student confidence and prepare students for college and workplace skills, as noted in Trends in Digital Learning (Blackboard.com, 2017, p.3). The “ability to work with diverse groups of people” and “teamwork and collaboration” rank number 2 and 4 on parent’s list of skills they think their children require to be successful in post-secondary and the workplace.
