Nine Competencies for Teaching Empathy - Educational Leadership

Nine Competencies for Teaching Empathy - Educational Leadership | Learning & Technology News | Scoop.it

"Despite their many positive qualities, "today's students are also the most self-centered, competitive, individualistic, sad, and stressed on record," writes educational psychologist Michele Borba. Find out how some schools and educators are working to change course by integrating empathy and other "soft skills" into lessons and routines--and why it matters to students' futures. "

Viviane DI NATALE's curator insight, June 23, 8:39 AM
L'empathie est bien plus qu'une qualité. C'est une compétence, qu'il faut faire l'effort d'acquérir, mais aussi de transmettre. Et l'école maternelle est, à mon sens, le premier creuset dans lequel elle doit prendre racines, afin d'être transmise avec le même engagement qu'un enseignant doit prendre pour l'apprentissage de la lecture  ou encore des mathématiques. C'est certainement ce chemin là qu'il faut emprunter pour un avenir meilleur !

What Does It Mean to Be Self-Actualized in the 21st Century :: The Creativity Post | Learning & Technology News | Scoop.it

We live in times of increasing divides, selfish concerns, and individualistic pursuits of power. I fear Maslow's conceptualization of self-actualization and the vision of humanity that was prevalent among the humanistic psychologists of the 60 and 70s has been lost in this generation.
