10 Proactive Steps for Schools to Limit Student Issues With Social Media - Emerging EdTech

10 Proactive Steps for Schools to Limit Student Issues With Social Media - Emerging EdTech | Social responsibility and Education |

"There is a well-founded concern among parents and in our schools about social media based cyberbullying leading to suicides among our preteen and teen children. Who hasn’t come across one of these terribly sad stories? Maybe you even know of such a story from your local area?


This is surely a case where an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.


I spent a few hours this weekend searching for tips and techniques to help educators reduce the likelihood of social media driven issues with their students. Combining what I learned with suggestions from the great staff at Kinry Road Elementary School, and my own personal perspective as a parent, I developed this list of approaches to help parents and educators limit incidents and issues by tackling the problem head on.

How Long-Term Stress Can Really Hurt Your Brain

Constant stress is rough on your family. It’s also terrible for being more creative.


But did you know it’s actually physically bad for your brain as well?

Recent research out of the University of California, Berkeley, offers sobering news for business owners battling chronic stress. The work was done by Daniela Kaufer, a professor of integrative biology, and colleagues. It peered into the brain to look at how being stressed out over a long period of time actually affects the physical structure of the brain.

Great visual reference when designing lessons.
Jim Lerman's curator insight, August 20, 2016 12:55 PM

I'm on a personal campaign to add 2 levels above Creating to Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy (don't forget he wrote about 3 domains of learning...Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor). I believe our field tends to overemphasize the Cognitive domain at the expense of the other 2, and to the detriment of learners.


Anyhow, the 2 levels above Creating that I'm concerned about are: Reflecting and Sharing. My reasoning goes like this:



Reflecting Once we go through all 6 levels (and they are not hierarchical, a learning sequence can start or end with any of them), if we want students to enhance their metacognition, it is important for us to build in reflective experiences. Such experiences enhance students' abilities to be more self-aware of how they learn and the strategies that do or don't work well for them.

Sharing - We teachers often remark that our knowledge of a particular topic solidifies when we teach it to someone else...the act of sharing brings out our awareness of nuances, relationships, perceptions, modes of expression/communication, and our interpersonal skills of working with others; all things that are very important to people's success in our current era. Our students deserve to become proficient in sharing effectively.


My 2 cents.

Use Color Psychology to Make Everyone Love You

Use Color Psychology to Make Everyone Love You | Social responsibility and Education |

This is something that is so simple once you take time to understand it. People have studied colors for perhaps thousands of years. Colors evoke certain emotional and physical reactions in people, and we’ve only begun to understand this.


As a consumer, it’s really cool to understand why you are inclined to feel a certain way about a certain store orbrand.


And as a business, this phenomenon can be used to create an identity for your brand, or portray emotions that you want your customers to feel. By incorporating a certain color in your logo, or plastering specific colors on your advertising campaign, you can create a simpler association for your customer to understand, based primarily on the emotions evoked by those colors.This can also do wonders when optimizing your Facebook profile, as well as your Twitter profile.

While this article focuses on color psychology as a whole, and uses logos and brands as main examples, you can extend this to more specific areas of marketing.
