10 Important Skills for Active Listening ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Important Skills for Active Listening ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Digital literacy | Scoop.it

Listening is an important skill that, unfortunately, is not given its due worth in school curricula. Listening is the key to understanding, a better understanding. It is a way of communicating and appreciating the world around us. The kind of listening am talking about here is what sound expert Julian Treasure called conscious listening. This is a mental process that consciously receives and decode auditory input. Stephen Covey talks about empathic listening (from empathy) and listed it as the fifth habit of highly effective  people.

Huge wealth of resources!!

Thomas Elley's curator insight, February 3, 2015 12:58 AM

A great mini-hub for teachers looking to increase their use of ICT in the classroom. I have borrowed a couple of lessons from here already. Not everything will work though - each has different resource demands.
