a re-post of a working discipline model

Kennifer Jelly described a blog as a pintrest for words. I like that. Here’s a pin of a simplified case study of the effects of teachers caring.

The stats from before and after implementing this approach are amazing. And, participants said the school started to feel like a family. (Another needed thing in our society.) The goal of having teachers interact in a more positive way sounds paralell to the “encouraging grandmothers” mentioned in the TED talk on the future of learning. http://www.ted.com/talks/sugata_mitra_build_a_school_in_the_cloud.html 

I also like seeing how the culture of the school is affected by the people in charge.

 

 

Question: Is there is a pretty way to imbed a link on wordpress?
