Simple Ways to Cultivate Happiness in Schools

Simple Ways to Cultivate Happiness in Schools | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
In my last post I suggested that equitable schools are those that contribute to happiness in children.

Via Mary Perfitt-Nelson, David Mackzum, Ed.D.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Where are these ideas in common core general standards? Do the common core standards address success as demonstrating  student, individual or even overall group happiness? Should happiness matter in a post-modern world?

 

This article tells schools, teachers and students to slow down, sing, move, get outside. Do these things really have a place in a school day for the entire school body? These ideas are rather old fashion and low tech. 

 

In these times many students, teachers and even families really have a hard  and often uncomfortable feeling about going outdoors, walking, moving, or simply remaining quiet. More people turn on music and sit and watch sports rather than actually engage physically in these movement activities. Children are discouraged from being outside unless they have a guardian with them. Parents and teachers are afraid to let them out unless they are guarded and who wants to do that on either side for long? So it's easier and allows more freedom to keep them inside and to calm them down allowing them to do something that requires more sitting and often watching others move or doing something through media gadgets…

 

Could doing the things listed here cause people to learn more and work better? How would we fit these into a day or even a week? Do people need to be happy to be successful or does becoming successful make them happy? And what about those that really don't become successful when success is defined by wealth, great jobs, power, possessions and good health? 

 

Excerpt:

Furthermore, when the weather is comfortable, why can't we have some of the many meetings we all have to sit in outside? Last year I took my instructional coaches to the forest for one of our professional development days. In addition to hiking, we read, talked, learned, and wrote -- all of the activities we usually do in our office.

This Anamorphic Portrait Made From an Entire Room of Objects

This Anamorphic Portrait Made From an Entire Room of Objects | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

French artist Bernard Pras works almost entirely within the realm of assemblage and anamorposis, a visual illusion where a distorted projection—often made from paint or a collection or objects—must be viewed from a specific vantage point to reconstitute the intended image.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here is simple technology for inspiring students to become imaginative ,empathic,thinkers. Play the lyrics to a song then allow them to think about it. 

 

Excerpt:

“The fillip for us is twofold,” McCutcheon explains, “As an Educate Together school, we teach the children an ethical curriculum. We want the children to become more sophisticated in the way they think about moral issues but we don’t want to appeal to any particular domination because we are a non-denominational school."

 

“The other appeal is under the citizenship remit and developing the ‘children’s voice’. You can set up student councils, and so on, but what’s most important is ensuring the teachers’ moral pedagogy over the course of the day is one that promotes children’s voice.”

The Hardest Job Everyone Thinks They Can Do | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
This piece was inspired by a heated discussion I had with a man who believes that teachers have an easy job. Please feel free to share it with others if you agree with the message.

Although published in 2010 the sentiments of this piece still ring true.
