Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 25, 2015 10:40 PM

Emotional IQ is a skill that is often mentioned as a key skill for the 21st century. This infographic shares information on emotional intelligence and is divided into a number of sections.

* What is emotional intelligence (EI)?

* Does higher EI mean improved job performance?

* Why do employers value EI over IQ?

* How EI affects your image?

* Take stock of your EI.

* Improve your emotional intelligence to improve your life

Although this infographic is geared to students in college there is information that you may find to share with students across many grade levels. Emotional intelligence plays a role in our classrooms and providing learners with more skills in this area may improve their ability to more actively participate and be engaged.

Personalized Learning Vs Traditional Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Personalized Learning Vs Traditional Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ENGLISH CLASSES | Scoop.it

One of the biggest affordances of technology is towards the enhancement of the concept of personalized learning. Internet and more particularly web 2.0 technologies and mobile apps have provided learners with unprecedented opportunities to learn whenever, wherever, and however they want. At its core, personalized learning is all about tailoring the available resources in order to meet personal learning needs. On a macro educational scale, personalized learning addresses different teaching strategies and instructional methods that focus on the adjustment and leverage of the curricula and teaching materials to help meet a diverse set of students learning needs and interests. The visual I am sharing with you today sheds more light on this concept and walks you through some of the differences between personalized learning and traditional learning. Check it out below and share with us what you think of it.

Unexpected Tools That are Influencing the Future of Education | Empathy | Social | eSkills

Unexpected Tools That are Influencing the Future of Education | Empathy | Social | eSkills | ENGLISH CLASSES | Scoop.it
SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Much of the disaffection with the school system stems from a pervasive feeling that the intense focus on formal academics has inadvertently neglected the rest of a child’s personality and humanity. While employers, psychologists and other researchers have repeatedly noted that social and emotional skills like empathy are some of the most important ones for success, many schools still lag in developing effective programs to nurture those soft skills.

Societal norms posit girls as being more emotionally intelligent than boys, but the subtle ways that teachers and parents reinforce that gender stereotype can harm boys, who need to learn empathy as an important life skill for connecting with others, problem-solving and developing moral courage.

 

Many of these interpersonal skills develop naturally when children have the opportunity to play together in unstructured environments, but free play is on the decline both in schools and at home. Researchers are now even questioning if lack of free play in students’ lives could be partly responsible for rising rates of depression among youth.

At the end of this course you will….” zzzzzzzzz……. How to kill learning before it has even started. Imagine if every movie started with a list of objectives; “in this film you will watch the process of a ship sail from Southampton, witness the catastrophic effect of icebergs on shipping, witness death at sea but understand that romance will be provided to keep you engaged”. Imagine Abraham Lincoln listing his objectives before delivering the Gettysburg Address. Imagine each episode of Breaking Bad starting with its objectives. It makes NO sense.

The Ultimate Guide to Watching Online TV with Private Internet Access ~ MakeUseOf ~ by Matthew Hughes

The Ultimate Guide to Watching Online TV with Private Internet Access ~ MakeUseOf ~ by Matthew Hughes | ENGLISH CLASSES | Scoop.it

"...[R]ecently, the general public has started to use anonymous VPN services – such as those provided by Private Internet Access — in other, more interesting roles. For example, many use them in order to mitigate against ISP-level censorship, as is common in countries like China, the UAE and yes, even the United Kingdom. Others use VPNs as a tool to defend themselves against government surveillance of the Internet.

 

"As a tool, VPNs are useful and versatile. Indeed, we’re a big fan of them at MakeUseOf and have listed some of the unusual potential applications for VPNs in the past. But did you also know that VPNs can help you catch up on the latest TV shows?

 

"Yes, it’s true. There is a phenomenal amount of streaming websites which allow you to watch the latest shows, but are only available in certain locales. You might be familiar with some of the more prominent ones, such as Hulu, Netflix, and the BBC’s iPlayer.

 

''These sites only allow people living in certain countries to access them. It seems unfair, doesn’t it? Just because you live in France or Germany, doesn’t mean that you should have to go without the latest episode of Family Guy. Similarly, just because you live in the US doesn’t mean that you should have to wait to watch the latest episode of Doctor Who."
