Ally Greer's curator insight, May 8, 2013 11:12 PM

As someone who studied a second language for the better part of my life, I've always been fascinated by this phenomenon of words existing in one language and not existing in another.


Throughout my studies, I've had the most fun conversing with friends who spoke both English and French as well, because when I had a hard time finding the right word in English, I could just say it in French and it would be completely fine.


The fact that the English language tends to simplify everything by turning broad concepts into one or two short words actually takes away from the beauty and meaning  that a language has the potential of having.


Reading the descriptions of the emotions in this infographic, I can think of a time when I've felt each and every one, and am fascinated by the fact that I could never actually put a word to it.

Emotions- Positive or Negative- impact our daily lives, influence others and have an impact on our health and well-being. Building on our positive emotions develop a significant resource to how we engage with others, and how we may find meaning in our live's, beyond our own personal needs. In terms of positive psychology this adds to our health, happiness and life statisfaction.

It is interesting to see how other cultures, through their language and personal experiences, have developed words with meaning we, in our western culture, do not have words for. There is much to learn, and feel.

Technology in the Classroom!

Brian H. Burnett's curator insight, April 17, 2013 12:52 PM

Children are being able to show what’s in their minds by adding the oral explanation,” he said. “That’s off-the-charts amazing.” Particularly helpful, he said, is to watch the recordings made by young children and English-language learners—students who may not speak up much in class but can actually show deep learning when asked to interview each other or record what they know. But most eye-opening, he said, is watching children have their own “aha” moments after watching recordings of themselves and talking to teachers about what they were thinking at the time."


"This notion of using the iPad to make learning visible is not without hiccups, however—particularly when it comes to filming and editing. Despite all the talk about kids being “digital natives” who can navigate iPads before they can walk, teaching children to create videos isn’t easy. When I watched the first-graders complete their assessment on systems, one girl’s videos wouldn't save at first—a technical problem that could have dissolved into a meltdown if a teacher had not been sitting right next to her to help. “It gave me gray hairs,” said a first-grade teacher about those first few weeks teaching iMovie to 6-year-olds. But she quickly added that the extra time was worth it."

This is the kind of creative power I want toharness in the iPads.
