The beauty of unfinished work (mindsets)

The beauty of unfinished work (mindsets) | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
There is a danger in seeking finished perfection in all that we do. There
is a risk that our students will focus solely on the attributes that define
a finished piece and overlook the importance of the process that leads to
it. With a shift in our mindset we might be able to celebrate this process
and encourage our students to value the learning that occurs along the way.

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
Ambiverts have introverted and extroverted traits, but neither trait is dominant. As a result, they have more balanced, or nuanced, personalities. They aren’t the folks yammering your ear off. Nor are they the totally silent ones happily ensconced in the corner.

Ambiverts move between being social or being solitary, speaking up or listening carefully with greater ease than either extroverts or introverts. “It is like they’re bilingual,” says Daniel Pink, a business book author and co-host of Crowd Control, a TV series on human behavior, who has studied ambiversion. “They have a wider range of skills and can connect with a wider range of people in the same way someone who speaks English and Spanish can.”
