Changing Our Thinking and Beliefs | TalentDevelop

Changing Our Thinking and Beliefs | TalentDevelop | What's new? | Scoop.it
Beliefs can be casual thoughts, but also ingrained attitudes about life and abilities, and affect how much we develop creativity and pursue other interests.

Stephen King recalls his high school teacher’s critique of his writing: “Why write junk like this… You’re talented. Why do you want to waste your abilities?” King goes on to admit [in his book "On Writing"]: “I have spent a good many years since — too many, I think — being ashamed about what I write."

Diane Maybey's curator insight, November 9, 2013 7:51 AM

It is worth a visit into the pains of our past to view any distorted beliefs we may be carrying about our creativity.  

 

Why do we hear the phrase 'I can't draw' so often?  Does drawing really equate to acurate representations of physical form?  It is far more than taking a snapshot - the act of observation, the process of mark making, the connection of neurons in your brain...

 

He may not be my chosen genre but imagine if Stephen King had believed his teacher's comments to be true and never written - what loss.

 

Take an honest look into how you view your creative self.  

Reflect on where those beliefs have come from.  

Acknowledge them.

Chose whether they are helping, or holding you back.

Then it's a simple choice; do you keep them?  Do you let them go?  

Then do it.  

 

Any time a negative thought comes into your mind about your creative self, recognise it and surround it with ten positive affirmative thoughts...'I am a wonderful creative being, I am creative in all that I do, being creative is part of who I am, it is a joy to be creative, I am creative...'

 

Then get going - be creative.  Be the creative person you want to be even if it feels like you're pretending to begin with, but do it, draw, write, make, create...

 

Own your experience as a human being. Honour the creativity that sits within us all and if your's has been hurt by experiences of the past then you need to heal, nurture and nourish your creative self.

Regardless of how young, you need to be the loving parent and allow your creative self to grow up.  

 

Imagine the possibilities.

A Scientific Guide To Maximizing Your Impact On Twitter, Facebook, And Other Digital Media

A Scientific Guide To Maximizing Your Impact On Twitter, Facebook, And Other Digital Media | What's new? | Scoop.it

We’re pretty keen on optimal timing for social media here at Buffer, and I figured it was high time I collected all the information we have about online communication into one place. I’ve collected research and stats on Twitter, Facebook, email and blogging to help you find the best time to communicate with others in each format.

 

The tricky thing I’ve come across is that since the Web is still so new, a lot of the research available to us is conflicting. We really need more time and more studies to get definitive answers about what works best, and the fact that our audience members are constantly changing their own activity patterns makes it even harder to work out for sure. Looking at the latest social media stats seems to only confirm that.

So my suggestion would be to use this guide as just that--a guide to help you work out what to test for in your own audience, so that you can see what actually works best in your specific case....

How to Build More Personal Power

How to Build More Personal Power | What's new? | Scoop.it

It’s a classic career management challenge: dealing with those times when the power we need is not the power we have.

 

Jean-Louis Barsoux and Cyril Bouquet, a senior research fellow and a professor of strategy respectively at IMD in Lausanne, Switzerland, call this the moment when we are a “power-deficient executive,” or PDE. They say that it’s a common ailment and a role that most executives will experience at some point in their careers. Reasons range from the demographic group an executive is in to the level of his or her experience to personality quirks.

 

The good news, Barsoux and Bouquet write in “How to Overcome a Power Deficit” in the summer 2013 issue of MIT Sloan Management Review, is that “deficits can almost always be overcome by following one of two basic strategies.” Here are some highlights from their article.

Finally, a Way to Read Minds | What's new? | Scoop.it

For now, the technique applies to quantitative thinking (doing math problems and calculating numbers) but the process could launch ways of reading other types of thoughts as well. The new research, published in Nature Communications, was the first to “read the minds” of patients who were not simply engaging in lab experiments but were going about their daily lives, albeit in a hospital where they were awaiting surgery. The patients, who had epilepsy, volunteered to have electrodes placed on the surface of their brains in order to determine what region was causing their seizures and whether the dysfunctional regions could be safely removed with surgery.

Seven Essentials for Project-Based Learning

Seven Essentials for Project-Based Learning | What's new? | Scoop.it

A project is meaningful if it fulfills two criteria. First, students must perceive the work as personally meaningful, as a task that matters and that they want to do well. Second, a meaningful project fulfills an educational purpose. Well-designed and well-implemented project-based learning is meaningful in both ways.

The framework for embarking on a successful project.

JennaMRyan's curator insight, December 11, 2013 8:36 PM

In the Educational Leadership Magazine, September 2010 Edition, John LArmer and John R. Mergendoller wrote the article "Seven Essentials ofr Project-Based Learning."  The article opens with a secnario of a teacher plopping a packet of papers on desks saying create a poster on bacteria.  This is a too common "excuse" for a project that lacks meaning and depth.  The process of students' learning and depth of cognitive engagement are more important in PBL than the project.  The seven essentials of PBL  are listed as follows:

1. A Need to Know

2. A Driving Question

3. Student Voice and Choice

4. 21st Century Skills

5. Inquiry and Innovation'

6. Feedback and Revision

7. A Publicly Presented Product

 

In another source curated, the Projects v. PBL, one of the most important differences is that projects get turned in and PBL gets shared with the public, this is consistent with this resource.  Seems like a common thread betwen all these currated sources is this "Need to Know" concept.  All sources agree the project in question needs to stem from a good idea and a good idea is something that is engaging to the kids and sparks the "need" with in them "to know."  The comparison to plopping papers on a desk and making posters with PBL is such a dramatic difference.  I certainly remember making posters for projects in middle school, but if I were to get to make a poster as a component of PBL in my classroom, I'm sure I would have been more intrinsicly motivated and more engaged in the assignment.  I grew from reading this article because I can see seven practical steps and goals for implementing PBL in my future classroom outlined clearly.
