The Thinker Behind “Grit” Says Teachers Need Grit, Too « Annie Murphy Paul

The Thinker Behind “Grit” Says Teachers Need Grit, Too « Annie Murphy Paul | librarian | Scoop.it

"Angela Lee Duckworth, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania, became famous (famous for an academic, at least) for her theory of “grit”—the notion that long-term passion and perseverance in pursuit of one’s goals was a key ingredient for student success. Now Duckworth is back, arguing that teachers need grit, too. It makes sense: If you’ve ever taught, you know how challenging it can be, and how much a little grit would help."

"Teaching can do weird things to you. It can give you purpose and sanctuary, or dissolve both right in front of your eyes.

 

It can energize and drain you.

 

Inspire and demoralize you.

 

Connect and isolate you."

In my district we used to have a keyboarding class for 6th graders, but it was cut out of our curriculum years ago.  Now we are finding that students are lacking in this necessary skill as many of the devices they use are point and click or swiping motions.

Making Learning A Process - TeachThought

Making Learning A Process - TeachThought | librarian | Scoop.it

"Roughly put, learning is really just a growth in awareness.

 

From not knowing to knowing is part of it, but that’s really too simple because it misses all the degrees of knowing and not knowing.

 

One can’t ever really truly understand something any more than a shrub can stay trimmed. There’s always growth or decay, changing contexts or conditions. Understanding is the same way. It’s fluid."

How much is time wrong around the world?

How much is time wrong around the world? | librarian | Scoop.it
Why Spaniards have dinner so late? A map of the difference between solar time and clock time around the world.

 

I edited a world map from Wikipedia to show the difference between solar and standard time. It turns out, there are many places where the sun rises and sets late in the day, like in Spain, but not a lot where it is very early (highlighted in red and green in the map, respectively). Most of Russia is heavily red, but mostly in zones with very scarce population; the exception is St. Petersburg, with a discrepancy of two hours, but the effect on time is mitigated by the high latitude. The most extreme example of Spain-like time is western China: the difference reaches three hours against solar time. For example, today the sun rises there at 10:15 and sets at 19:45, and solar noon is at 15:01.

Most of Africa except for a few regions are Solar in terms of the system of time. It goes from the east (solar) with little exceptions toward the south and then in the middle the map demonstrates the Standard time. And lastly in the West the poepulation is mostly Solar which creates the pattern to be solar, standard, solar.
