Emotional Agility

Emotional Agility | Contemporary Learning | Scoop.it

Sixteen thousand—that’s how many words we speak, on average, each day. So imagine how many unspoken ones course through our minds. Most of them are not facts but evaluations and judgments entwined with emotions—some positive and helpful (I’ve worked hard and I can ace this presentation; This issue is worth speaking up about; The new VP seems approachable), others negative and less so (He’s purposely ignoring me; I’m going to make a fool of myself; I’m a fake).

 

The prevailing wisdom says that difficult thoughts and feelings have no place at the office: Executives, and particularly leaders, should be either stoic or cheerful; they must project confidence and damp down any negativity bubbling up inside them. But that goes against basic biology. All healthy human beings have an inner stream of thoughts and feelings that include criticism, doubt, and fear. That’s just our minds doing the job they were designed to do: trying to anticipate and solve problems and avoid potential pitfalls.

10 incredible iPad apps for education | Contemporary Learning | Scoop.it

"The tablet market has paved the way for educational resources in the form of slick, new apps, with text-books now being replaced by online downloadable versions of themselves. An array of stunning apps are at your disposal waiting to be exercised, so with this in mind, we decided to whittle down our top 10 iPad educational apps for students."

SAMR: Design a Flexible Toolkit for Success

SAMR: Design a Flexible Toolkit for Success | Contemporary Learning | Scoop.it

I just finished putting the finishing touches on the presentation for a webinar I'm hosting on Tuesday of this week, SAMR: Design a Flexible Toolkit for Successful Tech Integration. This free webinar is sponsored by Infinitec and registration is open to all. Assembling the resources has caused me to dig deep into my toolkit to examine ways the tools I frequently go to can be used effectively to align with each level of the SAMR model. I have been evaluating the usefulness of my favorite tools and reflecting.

Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners: Using Google Drive Forms to Power 1:1 Instruction

Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners: Using Google Drive Forms to Power 1:1 Instruction | Contemporary Learning | Scoop.it

As I explore teaching and learning in a 1:1 iPad environment I'm excited about the potential of using Google Drive Forms as a teaching tool. Forms display well on any Internet connected device, and they are packed full of features that can be used to collect feedback, communicate, check for comprehension and best of all, teach. 

I've created several successful surveys since we launched our 1:1 initiative at the end of January and I am eager to share these ideas with other educators

I agree with the points on the infographic and they make sense. The problem is I did not see it in the school division I worked in for almost 20 years. Most days it was the 180 degrees different for me and others.

Food for thought...Especially for the traditional office space in education, non-profits, or any space that would not typically be thought of as "needing to spark creativity".
