Window of Opportunity ~ Connected Principals

Window of Opportunity ~ Connected Principals | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"Our window of opportunity to touch our students’ lives closes faster than we realize. Never let an opportunity to change a child’s life pass you by. I hope that we wind summer down we all start looking for those windows and can be that change for some student…socks be darned."

A great story that has little to do with tech and education, but everything to do with what teachers and schools can do. It's definitely worth the 5 minutes it takes to read it.

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

RSA Animate recently released a video called 'The Power of Outrospection'. The video intrigued me and this post has helped me pull together some of my thoughts about the links between empathy and creativity.
The post explores empathy in a variety of fields, including design, human services, and the creative fields, and the video is also embedded in the post. Take the opportunity to read the post, watch the video, and ponder how empathy allows us to be creative as we look for new solutions for whatever issues we face.

The Ashoka Community's curator insight, June 24, 2013 2:48 PM

Ashoka strives to make empathy, teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving (what we call changemaker skills) as valued in education as traditional academic skills, so that all students find their voices and can make a positive impact on the world.  In order to achieve this goal, we created the Changemaker Schools Network, a national community of leading elementary schools that serve as models for cultivating these skills in students.
