Classroom observations: what’s the best fix for a good but not perfect measure? Imagine having someone follow you around, observing you for just a fraction of a day, to assess your capability on the job. Sounds nerve wracking. This is how many teachers are evaluated, and new research suggests that these observations are not altogether reliable. Trouver l'Inspiration avec les Conférences Incroyables des Ted Talks Qu'est-ce que c'est ?Les conférences TED sont des conférences internationales organisées par la fondation The Sapling Foundation dont le but est de partager au plus grand nombre des idées qui valent la peine d'être diffusées. La communauté met gratuitement en ligne les meilleures conférences sur son site web, parfois traduites dans plus de 50 langues différentes. Les intervenants sont aussi bien des personnalités (Bill Gates, fondateur de Microsoft, Tim Berners-Lee, créateur du "World Wide Web", Stephen Hawking, physicien théoricien et cosmologiste, etc.) que des spécialistes méconnus du grand public qui n’en sont pas moins stupéfiants d’intelligence. Les sujets traités sont très divers, vous pourrez découvrir des conférences concernant la science, les arts, la politique, la philosophie, les questions mondiales, l'architecture, la musique et bien d'autres sphères de compétences.

The Hidden Brain: How Ocean Currents Explain Our Unconscious Social Biases by Maria Popova “Those who travel with the current will always feel they are good swimmers; those who swim against the current may never realize they are better swimmers than they imagine.” Biases often work in surreptitious ways — they sneak in through the backdoor of our conscience, our good-personhood, and our highest rational convictions, and lodge themselves between us and the world, between our imperfect humanity and our aspirational selves, between who we believe we are and how we behave. In the introduction, Vedantam contextualizes why this phenomenon isn’t new but bears greater urgency than ever:

La première TED, Technology-Entertainment-Design, a vu le jour en Californie en 1984 avec son fondateur Richard Saul Wurman. Le principe ? Want to Stop Mean Girls? Raise Nice Girls, Instead  Once upon a time, fourth grade was the year that young girls began to have difficulty navigating friendships.

Des féministes, mais pas que. Des femmes avant tout ! Place à leurs discours inspirants, qui font réfléchir sur la place des femmes dans la société actuelle.

Giving Good Praise to Girls: What Messages Stick How to praise kids: It’s a hot topic for many parents and educators. A lot of the conversation around it has stemmed from studies by Carol Dweck, professor of psychology at Stanford who has been researching this specific topic for many years. “My research shows that praise for intelligence or ability backfires,” said Dweck, who co-authored a seminal research paper on the effects of praise on motivation and performance. “What we’ve shown is that when you praise someone, say, ‘You’re smart at this,’ the next time they struggle, they think they’re not. It’s really about praising the process they engage in, not how smart they are or how good they are at it, but taking on difficulty, trying many different strategies, sticking to it and achieving over time.” But what some might not know is that this paradox is strongest for girls.

Educational Leadership:Early Intervention at Every Age:The Perils and Promise... Carol S. Dweck I think educators commonly hold two beliefs that do just that. Many believe that (1) praising students' intelligence builds their confidence and motivation to learn, and (2) students' inherent intelligence is the major cause of their achievement in school. Our research has shown that the first belief is false and that the second can be harmful—even for the most competent students.
