Why Cross-Training Employees Makes Sense | Jack or Jill of all trades

Cross-Training Employees: Why It Makes Sense

When you use the words “cross-training” many business executives and staff immediately think of sports. We have visions of the triathlete who is simultaneously honing their swimming, cycling, and archery skills, so they can compete in some extraordinary challenging event at the world level.

In fact, it is a word that is coming out of North American boardrooms more and more these days, as corporations find themselves having to deal with the new realities of rapidly changing markets and increasing production and service challenges.

In business terms today, cross-training is used to describe the process of training employees so that they can do several jobs within an organization. On a production line, for example, a person is able to move from their original position to another completely different skill. In a food operation, a front-line order taker must also be able to handle short order cooking skills, clean tables, and order supplies.

 

The “Jack or Jill of all trades”, a relic of the past in an age of specialists, is now the most coveted of employees again.

Helicopter Parenting Is A Trap. It's Time To Break Free

Why did parenting change from preparing our kids for life to protecting them from life, which means they're not prepared to live life on their own? And why do these problems I'm writing about seem rooted in the middle and upper middle classes?

FORGIVENESS AND RECONCILIATION, EMPATHY AND ACTIVISM: PATHS TO TRANSFORMATIVE EDUCATION | | Physical education | Scoop.it

Altruism and Activism, a capstone, service learning course in DePaul University’s Honors program, looks at the biological basis of empathic behavior and the developmental process that then evolves into full fledged caring.

 

We trace the transition from care to action by examining autobiographies of lifelong leaders of social movements. Reflective exercises focused on the service experience reinforce interdisciplinary inquiries.

If you are looking for some websites that provide math resources check out this post from Edudemic. Ten sites are listed with descriptions and they cover math from elementary through high school. The sites are listed below with more information found in the post.

* TEDEd Math Videos

* Yummy Math

* Mathsframe

* PBS Learning Media (a great resource for all subjects!)

* Absurd Math

* Illuminations

* Get the Math

* Multiplication.com

* Johnie's Math Page

* Mathdude Podcast

As an example, here is part of the description for Yummy Math:

"All math teachers have heard the common complaint: “but how will I ever use this in the real world?” Yummy Math is one of a few sites on our list that addresses that question in a way meant to keep students interested.

The site mixes videos, images, and real-world challenges that get students thinking about where math fits into their day-to-day lives. The site divides posts by age group, genre, and the type of math on display."

Emotional brains 'physically different' to rational ones

Emotional brains 'physically different' to rational ones | Physical education | Scoop.it
The work, led by Robert Eres from the University's School of Psychological Sciences, pinpointed correlations between grey matter density and cognitive and affective empathy.


The study looked at whether people who have more brain cells in certain areas of the brain are better at different types of empathy.

 

"People who are high on affective empathy are often those who get quite fearful when watching a scary movie, or start crying during a sad scene. Those who have high cognitive empathy are those who are more rational, for example a clinical psychologist counselling a client,"

Empathy: The real star of Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’

Empathy: The real star of Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ | Physical education | Scoop.it

by RACHEL RACZKA

 

Joy, the film’s protagonist and the leader of the emotions, is set up to be easily likable, from her Tinkerbelle-esque sprightliness to her big watchful blue eyes, but given the extent of psychological grounding for the film, her behavior is not surprising.

 

Studies have shown that happy individuals tend to be the worst at displaying empathy. And in a twist, those same happy individuals, like Joy, believe they’re very good at expressing it.

But it’s developing empathy and compassion—specifically the kind found through experience, even the sad kind—that provides Joy the direction they need to find their way back to Headquarters.

Veteran teacher on why so many teachers leave — and how to get them to stay

Veteran teacher on why so many teachers leave — and how to get them to stay | Physical education | Scoop.it
On paper, teaching seems like the perfect job. Don't kid yourself.

Problem 4: Environment
Teachers need supportive school environments and help with students who are not in class to learn. As technology grows, our students’ attention span shrinks. We plan for an exciting lesson, and some students say it is “stupid” and refuse to  participate. Working with a person that refuses to pull their share in the process is frustrating. Imagine having a group of students in every classroom who blatantly refuse to do anything. And yet, their standardized test scores can often comprise up to half of a teacher’s evaluation — and their response to our lessons during observations make up the other half.

Solution: Including all stakeholders in finding new ways to engage students in their education. Teachers, parents and administrators must work together to make the school experience one where students not only respect their teachers but have relevant reasons to engage. Many schools have lost or never had electives that children love — such as music, industrial arts, theater, etc., — and this is one reason that school has become such a heavy weight for students and teachers. Creating schools that care for the whole student, rather than just test scores, can create an environment where once again students AND teachers are more engaged.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, June 16, 2015 1:35 PM

When states decide that students are not accountable for their performance on state tests, they are encouraging students to covertly opt-out.

 

Let me state emphatically that I would not work in a state in which students were not held accountable for the results of state assessments!

The first four years of our state testing were a disaster. We wasted far too much time pleading with students to take the tests seriously. Students were not held accountable for their performance on state tests, but our school was! The reputation of our school and our careers were dependent on the good will of fourteen to eighteen year-olds who were justifiably sick-and-tired of testing and who had never received any meaningful feedback, aside from “proficient” or “below proficient”, from those tests.

Students across the country have been covertly opting-out of tests for years. Students simply mark a box without reading the question also known as “Christmas-treeing” tests. Schools have been closed, principals fired, and teachers transferred based on the results of tests that did not matter for students. I know because I have worked with some of these schools.

It’s AFTER training, when the real learning happens | LEARNing By Doing | eSkills | Life Long LEARNing | Physical education | Scoop.it
Training events – whether face-to-face or online are primarily focused on knowledge transfer or skill development. Learning is usually measured in terms of the % of people who have completed the training or passed the tests.

But the real learning takes place AFTER the training has ended, when the individual is back on the job applying what he or she has studied – and learning from that experience on a continual basis. Learning both from everyday personal working experiences well as interactions with their internal colleagues and/or external customers or clients. That’s how they learn most about how to do their jobs –  by actually doing their jobs.
