Digital Note Taking Strategies That Deepen Student Thinking | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Organization is a critical academic skill and one that many students struggle with in both the physical and digital worlds. Parents and teachers already help students get organized and now need to extend that to the digital world. Given the influx of technology in their academic lives, students need to develop an effective organizational system for their digital notes, projects and thinking.

Some Very Good Apps to Showcase Students Learning | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
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.

“Yea, but what does it look like?”

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).

Bill Ferriter sums up the difference perfectly in this blog post with a visual:

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?

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.
