Bovee & Thill's Online Magazines for Business Communication's curator insight, May 6, 2013 11:20 AM

You are in a foreign country, and don't speak the language. You order something indecipherable off the menu, and when the waiter brings you a plate of delicious noodles, you smile and make an OK sign at him with your thumb and forefinger linked in a circle. He then picks up the dish and throws it in your lap.

What happened? Welcome to the wonderful world of international hand gestures, where nothing is quite as it seems. . .

On Monday I will begin my new job. As I’ve mentioned before, I will be working as a Technology Resource Specialist as well as teaching a couple of classes. As always, I am nervous and excited for the first day of school, and eager to meet a new group of students. As an educator, I often find myself repeating the same icebreakers each year, trying to quickly get to know my students through “Two Truths and a Lie” or a “Getting To Know You” fact sheet.

Gayla Keesee's curator insight, March 25, 2013 10:45 AM

If you want your students to collaborate, they have to get to know each other. Spend a good part of the first week with icebreaker activities.

Se você perguntar a um aluno o que o torna bem sucedido na escola, provavelmente você não ouvirá sobre de algum livro fantástico novo ou série de palestras . Muito provavelmente você vai ouvir algo como: "Foi tudo o Sr. Jones. Ele simplesmente nunca desistiu de mim. "
O que os alunos tiram de uma educação bem-sucedida, geralmente vem de uma ligação pessoal com um professor que incutiu a paixão e inspiração por determinada aprendizagem.

I've always liked this kind of photo.  I think there were similar photos of other big 'liners'.  To me this photo always symbolized a suave, stylish lifestyle I'd love to be able to enjoy.

 

But I will say this too......I've never enjoyed the thought of all the 'monsters' down there in the ocean and the thought that if anything happens to that little raft (and it IS little in comparison to the ocean....that suddenly my ass becomes potential fish food.
