G'day Olga and greetings from Downunder on the bottom in the middle. That's how I describe Adelaide to colleagues in the USA and Europe :-) Wow Russian that's awesome, may I see it please. Let me know if I can help further. Maybe we can meet on SKYPE. Also I don't think your translation work will be wasted howevert there is a modified Version 3.0 out which is even better. Please visit http://tinyurl.com/padwheelposter3 This is a PDF designed to be an A3 poster as well. All the apps are also linked and it uses QRcodes for scanning by phones etc. You may also find this blog post helpful - please have a look at the Edudemic post http://ow.ly/lKJcK Do contact me if you have any questions. Could I be bold and suggest you translate the entire poster all the content is helpful I believe. I can provide you with a Keynote file (for MAC) which will make it easier. Regards Allan

Good evening, Allan, thanks for your respond!
Olga Evstifeeva's comment, June 7, 2013 7:50 AM
I've posted the translation in my blog, here is the link to the post http://pedagogland.ru/ispolzovanie-it-v-sochetanii-s-taksonomiej-bluma.html
The picture is linked with your pdf file at http://www.unity.net.au/padwheel/padwheelposter.pdf, and there is another link in the text to your article in your blog http://www.unity.net.au/allansportfolio/edublog/?p=324

I laid out the translation of the contents of the wheel into the spreadsheet with some short comments (primarily concerning the SAMR model and levels of IT use in school education - column 1) and added a few apps and online services with a few links to some brief guides (the last column, for the teachers who are probably not familiar with some of them yet :) as iPads are not widely used at our schools yet (maybe in the nearest future), so apps for desktops or laptops are more actual for us by far.

That's great that you gave me the link for the P_Wheel 3.0, thank you! Right, motivation along with graduate features should be in the core of the wheel. I'd be happy to translate the entire poster, thanks for the suggestion, the problem is that I don't use Mac. What can we do here? my email: olga@dohnsco.com
Best regards

Dr. Helen Teague's insight:
After studying the citizens of the Italian village of  Pioppi, Dr Malhotra found it was their lifestyle that gave them many years of extra life, many over 100 years old. Diet was a key factor as was lack of stress, seven hours of sleep a night, and eating sugar just once a week. Dr. Malhotra has concluded that “simple lifestyle changes such as consuming less sugar were more powerful than any medication doctors could prescribe”.

Empathy Is Crucial To Any Personal/Professional Relationship -- How To Cultivate It via Storytelling

Empathy Is Crucial To Any Personal/Professional Relationship -- How To Cultivate It via Storytelling | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it
Empathy can make or break relationships. It is a skill, which can reap many benefits in both your personal life and work place. These 5 simple habits will help you to grow your empathy muscle.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 20, 1:47 PM

Did you know that there are 3 kinds of empathy? Yep.

  1. Cognitive
  2. Emotional
  3. Compassionate

 

This post explains all three. Plus the author shares recent research on the impact of empathy in business/leadership success. The author then gives 3 areas to focus on to build empathy:

  1. Be present
  2. Actively listen
  3. Put yourself in the other's shoes

 

The problem? These 3 areas are so general they are almost meaningless. So let's fix it. Want to build your empathy skills fast? Learning business storytelling skills is the most efficient + effective way to do so. Take action on these 3 storytelling practices:

  1. Start small and take your time. Share a personal experience with only 1 person present. Look into their eyes. Experience their reactions to your story. Experience what they like/what grabs them. Shift the story when you sense them drifting off. Learn what connects and what doesn't.
  2. Listen appreciatively. That's not listening actively, which includes paraphrasing what you heard. Don't interrupt. Just listen fully and delightedly without an agenda. Hard to do. Practice makes perfect. Clients who do this report entire worlds opening up to them. For more concrete steps, listen to my TEDx talk where I share exactly how to listen appreciatively.
  3. Listen to and share lots of stories. The more stories you listen to you stronger your empathy skills (backed by research). Sharing stories in return also builds empathy skills and deepens relationships. 'Gotta love that.

 

Try these and tell me how it goes. Questions? Comments? Send me a note.

Starting Your Day on the Internet Is Damaging Your Brain by Srinivas Rao

Starting Your Day on the Internet Is Damaging Your Brain by Srinivas Rao | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it

I’ve said before the first 3 hours of your day can dictate how your life turns out. And this often begins with the very first thing that you decide to put in your brain. You can either start you day with junk food for the brain (the internet, distracting apps, etc) or you can start the day with healthy food for the brain (reading, meditation, journaling, exercising, etc). When you start the day with junk food for the brain, you put yourself at a self imposed handicap that inhibits your ability to get into flow and prevents you from doing deep work. When you start the day with health food for your brain, the exact opposite happens.

"Anytime I start my day with junk food for the brain, the quality of the day goes down. I’m less happy, focused, and productive. I spend a ton of time on the internet and don’t get any real work done. But if I start my day with health food for the brain, I find that my mood is better, I’m happier, more focused and productive."
