Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 18, 9:44 PM

Finding great educational videos takes time...so I am always excited when I find a list of suggested video. Jackie Gerstein shares her top 11. They range from just over three minutes to about seventeen minutes. Below is  a list of the videos.

* Malala Yousuf Nobel Prize Speech

* Carol Dweck: The Power of Believing You Can Improve

* Sir Ken Robinson: Can Creativity Be Taught

* President Obama on the Whitehouse Maker Faire

* Toxic Culture of Education: Joshua Katz

* The necessity of the student voice | Catherine Zhang

* Rethinking Learning in the Digital Age – Mitchel Resnick

* If I Knew Then: A Letter to Me on My First Day Teaching

* Kid President Throws a Surprise Party for a Retiring Teacher

* Erzah French: Sportskid of the Year

* Malcolm Mitchell Book Club

You will find brief descriptions for most of these videos and I suspect that many will choose to watch all of them over a period of time. You may find one or two that would be great to share at a faculty meeting.

Future of Work: What Skills Will Help Us Keep Pace? empathy, innovation, new teamwork and new leadership.

Future of Work: What Skills Will Help Us Keep Pace?  empathy, innovation, new teamwork and new leadership. | Whole Child Development | Scoop.it

These are the changemaking skills of empathy, innovation, new teamwork and new leadership. As STEM skills help us learn the latest technologies—changemaking skills can help us flourish in a society transitioning from hierarchical to flat, fast moving networks.



Each of the changemaking skills is key, but I’ll focus on the most important one—empathy.


In our increasingly interconnected world, one’s actions have a bigger impact on others and can create tremendous positive or negative outcomes in record time. From the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street, ISIS, the Ice Bucket Challenge, and the increasing rate at which new companies and industries are forming and collapsing—change that traditionally took decades is now happening in months.


Hierarchical systems of authority are increasingly struggling to keep up. The systemic solution is to help everyone develop the new skills needed to get along with others in a flat, fast-moving world.


We have already seen the power of empathetic and decisive people successfully leading and navigating in this new world.

Four Steps to Cultivating Compassion in Boys

Four Steps to Cultivating Compassion in Boys | Whole Child Development | Scoop.it
Kozo Hattori interviewed researchers and spiritual leaders about how to raise compassionate boys. This is what he discovered.


Searching for an answer, I read widely and sought out public figures who have dedicated their lives to exploring and advocating for the alleviation of suffering—Dr. Rick Hanson, Dr. Dacher Keltner, Dr. Dan Siegel, Thich Nhat Hanh, Father Richard Rohr, and others.


From this research, I concluded that cultivating compassion really is the best way to protect our boys from violence—or, as Hanh says, “Compassion protects you more than guns, bombs, and money.” From their combined scientific and spiritual perspectives, a four-fold process for cultivating this resource in boys emerged.


  • Touch: When UC Berkeley professor and GGSC co-founder Dacher Keltner researched the power of touch for human development and relationships, he discovered a surprising gender difference: ....
  • Push Gender Boundaries: In the trailer for the film, The Mask You Live In, former NFL player Joe Ehrman claims that “the three most destructive words that every man receives when he is a boy is when he is told to ‘Be A Man.’” ...
  • Be a role model  -  Almost all the compassionate men I interviewed had a compassionate role model...
  • Cultivate stillness - A recent paper from Timothy D. Wilson and colleagues at the University of Virginia and Harvard University revealed incredibly strong resistance in men to silence and stillness....
