What is the Importance of a Personal Learning Network? | Live and Learn | Scoop.it
As discussed in a previous post, a personal learning network (PLN) is a customized social media platform for educators. But instead of sharing pictures, status updates, and liking each other’s filtered profile pictures, educators can learn from people and resources around the globe to improve their teaching methods, stay up-to-date on the latest edtech trends, and receive endless outside support. Today we’re listing a few key reasons why you should invest in a personal learning network, for the good of yourself and the students you’re responsible for. So, why PLNs?

(Empathy in Education) (Empathic Design) Empathy: The Ultimate Classroom Management Skill

(Empathy in Education) (Empathic Design) Empathy: The Ultimate Classroom Management Skill | Live and Learn | Scoop.it
Empathy: The Ultimate Classroom Management Skill
Meet Mary, a high school teacher serving "at risk" students in Phoenix. She has been struggling with her classroom. Students were being distracted and causing distractions. Students were blasting their music from their phones, talking to each other (not related to any learning), texting friends, and terribly unengaged in general. It spread and worsened throughout the year. She tried strategy after strategy... nothing was working. It was a strange year indeed, she never had these kinds of issues, and she felt stuck and disempowered in her own classroom.

Feeling stuck is usually a sign that we are seeing the world from a limited perspective. By expanding our perspectives, we can expand our options, and then make more empowered choices. One way to include new perspectives is developing deep empathy for someone, stepping into the shoes of another person, and seeing the world from their point of view. Gaining understanding of why Mary's students were disengaged can help Mary gain the perspective she needs to get unstuck.
