G-learning: Using Google Drive with a textbook in the classroom

G-learning: Using Google Drive with a textbook in the classroom | Education | Scoop.it

Google Drive does not have to be an alternative to the textbook, but can be used easily in conjunction with it. In this short video tutorial I show how I am using Google Drive with a projector with the textbook during a class.

Empathy | Activities to Grow Empathy

Empathy | Activities to Grow Empathy | Education | Scoop.it

“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to 

look through each other’s eyes for an instant?”

Henry David Thoreau


Do we start from empathy when we set out to solve educational challenges and design learning pathways for our students?

How do we foster empathy and make it a starting point for problem solving and the design of new solutions for both ourselves and for our students?

 

Empathy over sympathy
Lately it seems all roads lead to empathy: 
 

Tony Wagner in Creating Innovators identifies empathy as a necessary characteristic for innovators;
 

 David Kelly of Stanford University identifies empathy as the starting point for all problem solving;
 

 Daniel Goleman states leaders with empathy do more than sympathize with people around them: they use their knowledge to improve their companies in subtle, but important ways.
 

 

================

Not only is empathy vital for

solving problems responsively and

meaningfully, empathy is an

underpinning for connection

And, the goal matters even more when we understand that students and teachers arrive in schools with their personal curricula involved.
