Helen Teague's insight:

My favorite part of the article: "When you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you truly are.  So don’t fear the judgments of others; you know in your heart who you are and what’s true to you.  You don’t have to be someone else to impress and inspire people.  Let them be impressed and inspired by the real YOU.  Honestly, whatdoes life matter if you lose yourself along the way?  Even your mentors should teach you HOW to think, not WHAT to think.  So if someone – anyone – is belittling your truth, it might be time to turn the other way."

Training the Brain to Listen: A Practical Strategy for Student Learning and Classroom Management

Training the Brain to Listen: A Practical Strategy for Student Learning and Classroom Management | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it

Editor's note: This post is co-authored by Marcus Conyers who, with Donna Wilson, is co-developer of the M.S. and Ed.S. Brain-Based Teaching degree programs at Nova Southeastern University. 

 

During the school year, students are expected to listen to and absorb vast amounts of content. But how much time has been devoted to equipping students with ways to disconnect from their own internal dialogue (self-talk) and to focus their attention fully on academic content that is being presented? Listening is hard work even for adults. When students are unable to listen effectively, classroom management issues arise.

Teaching the difference between hearing (acknowledging there is a noise but not necessarily engaging the brain to understand the sound) and listening (consciously trying to make sense of the sound) would be a good first step too.

How Positive Thoughts Build Skills, Boost Health, and Improve Work

How Positive Thoughts Build Skills, Boost Health, and Improve Work | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it
Positive thinking sounds useful on the surface. (Most of us would prefer to be positive rather than negative.) But “positive thinking” is also a soft and fluffy term that's easy to dismiss. In the real world, it rarely carries the same weight as words like “work ethic” or “persistence.” But those views may be changing.

Useful recognition of the importance of both trust and respect. 

Graeme Reid's curator insight, January 16, 8:03 PM

Investing in respect is one of the best investments that you will make.  It is easy to be negative, pass on gossip or be insincere, but far harder to be aware of your actions and avoid negativity.

Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's curator insight, January 23, 6:26 AM

Trust is the foundation to any high performing relationship, team, and organization.  One of the greatest gifts you can give anyone other than your time and attention is respect.

 

Respecting someon's time, respecting someon's idea, respecting someon's decision, etc.  (It means removing the Yes...but language, and starting with respect)

 

Excellent article and nice reminders to us all:)

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it

Why not keep paper and evolve screen-based reading into something else entirely? Screens obviously offer readers experiences that paper cannot. Scrolling may not be the ideal way to navigate a text as long and dense as Moby Dick, but the New York Times, Washington Post, ESPN and other media outlets have created beautiful, highly visual articles that depend entirely on scrolling and could not appear in print in the same way.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, November 28, 2013 10:53 AM

Surveys indicate that screens and e-readers interfere with two other important aspects of navigating texts: serendipity and a sense of control.


People report that they enjoy flipping to a previous section of a paper book when a sentence surfaces a memory of something they read earlier, for example, or quickly scanning ahead on a whim. People also like to have as much control over a text as possible - to highlight with chemical ink, easily write notes to themselves in the margins as well as deform the paper however they choose.


Christy P.Novack's curator insight, December 8, 2013 9:10 PM

A detailed paper discussing screens vs paper. Lots of other links included. There is no research paper connected with article. I did a paper on practice modalites that involved print text vs media for learning and engagement. More papers are needed out there on such topics, as technology research studies can quickly become outdated.

Mirna Goldberger's curator insight, December 20, 2013 8:21 AM

I am definitely not made to scroll, my brain prefers printed paper.  I cannot focus and retain as well, when I read online.
