How managers develop emotional intelligence and apply it: New study

How managers develop emotional intelligence and apply it: New study | Learning is always creative | Scoop.it
Social perception is the ability to be able to accurately read and identify other people’s emotions as they are feeling them. Social perception also includes identifying the distribution of emotions and sense of the emotional direction of a group. Interestingly, this includes being able to distinguish between genuine emotions and expressions that are put on for show in group, and particularly work, situations. This ability to be able to extract the underlying emotions in a group situation is a complex capability.

Story Telling, Our Place in the World, and Digital Technology. –

I am a firm believer that the technology we have available to us today provides opportunities for all our children to have a voice, to tell their stories. Learners can record their own voice, create a video or an animation, they can write by hand, they can type. They can speak to the computer and it will type for them, they can tell their story through song or dance. They can use a variety of media to enrich their stories.

Digital Learning Theories and Models that all educators should know

Digital Learning Theories and Models that all educators should know | Learning is always creative | Scoop.it

You’ve probably heard about the benefits of digital learning: It’s engaging, student-centered, often collaborative, and can increase student achievement.

But here’s the catch:

You and your students won’t reap these benefits if you don’t purposefully plan your use of technology.

Too often, teachers think of technology as something to check off of a list. “Does this lesson use technology? Nope…How can I sprinkle some in?” Using technology merely for the sake of using technology isn’t effective teaching.

Instead, here are five digital learning theories and models that can help you tap into the benefits of technology and enhance student outcomes.

The ‘Show Me’ Grading System of the Future

The ‘Show Me’ Grading System of the Future | Learning is always creative | Scoop.it
Over 200 schools are developing a new way to grade and report on student work, focused on reporting on 21st-century skills and dispositions rather than subject-specific letter grades. Skills will include ‘analytical and creative thinking,’ ‘complex communication,’ and ‘digital and quantitative literacy.’ Behind each mark are links to a student portfolio of work that demonstrates growth and competence through real work sample

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) through Virtual Reality: Is this the future of education?

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) through Virtual Reality: Is this the future of education? | Learning is always creative | Scoop.it

Increasingly, education isn’t all about maths, sciences, and languages. In fact, as forward-thinking educators know, the future of work will demand flexible, culturally fluent, emotionally intelligent workers. That trend is already being felt: for the last 20 years or so, the jobs that have grown the most, whether we consider wages or employment prospects, demand pretty advanced interpersonal skills to complement other talents.

New Google Earth Tool Lets You Measure Distances and Areas - The Wonder of Tech | Learning is always creative | Scoop.it

"Google Earth just released a brand new tool that lets you measure the world around you. If you want to know how far your hike, run, walk, jog, bike ride, or other path is, you can now use this easy measuring tool to find out.

You can also use this new Google Earth tool to figure out areas to learn the size of a piece of property, a park, stadium or country.

Now you can measure the exact distance between two points, or three points. Or as many points as you’d like. Or the area of a parcel of land."
