SCH Academy Letter to Middle School Parents About #GlobalEd

SCH Academy Letter to Middle School Parents About #GlobalEd | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

...When the data was ultimately collated, I expected that at the top of the list of criteria for a good school ... digital tools and exceptional resources would be present. Not so. Among the top three choices in all student data were good teachers. I did not expect this, and yet, I should have. That is precisely why we are committed as teachers to professional development, and why continuing to expand our Global Education work this year was an imperative. I’m lucky to be a 21st century teacher at work in a global world, but it is the present moment of this world’s needs to which our girls want to respond with action, movement, involvement. ...

Activating Empathy: Transforming Schools To Teach What Matters

Activating Empathy: Transforming Schools To Teach What Matters | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

Empathy is more than just awareness and concern. It is about cultural sensitivity and conflict resolution. It’s about the ability to communicate effectively and understand the motivations of others. Empathy is about standing up, not standing by, uncovering what’s below the surface through active listening and putting words into action.

 

This is why Ashoka is launching a global initiative to ensure that children master empathy, enabling them to be effective citizens, leaders and trailblazers.
