New Google Digital Literacy and Citizenship Curriculum Now Available — iKeepSafe | The Digital Door | Scoop.it

"In discussions about contemplative pedagogy a great deal of attention has been devoted to practical applications of mindfulness in the classroom (what we might call “mindfulness-based pedagogy”). The tendency in this approach is to view mindfulness as a type of technology that can be used to enhance the quality and effectiveness of the teaching and learning experience.

 

"While there are many wonderful benefits of this approach, it generally abstracts mindfulness from its historical roots as a practice aimed at moral and spiritual development. The purpose of this presentation is to recover the value of traditional meditation practice as a means of cultivating the capacities or virtues characteristic of the mindful teacher."

This will come in very useful for us in school.

Looks like a great resource. I liken getting kids to understand their digital footprint to getting them to understand the choices they make now, affects the direction their life will go later. Definitely a tough lesson to learn and teach! we need all the help we can get! :)
