20/09/20: Unit 6 Blog – ‘A New Generation of Thinking’

Dear students,

Here our ‘Critical Thinking’ questions:

  1. If you were one of the children in the Marshmallow Challenge, would you have eaten the marshmallow immediately? Why or why not?
  2. How do you think emotional intelligence can be taught at home and in school?

And ‘What Do You Think’:

  1. Why do you think this unit is called ‘A New Generation of Thinking’? How does it differ from the old way of thinking?
  2. Does your country or society encourage this new way of thinking? Does your education system benefit people with different types of intelligences? Why or why not?
  3. How can you develop the intelligences that you are weak at? Suggest some activities.

I really hope to hear from you. Remember that you can get a maximum of 5 points for your Homework Task 2. Deadline to participate: Saturday 26th by 11:59pm.

    ‘Critical Thinking’
    1. I think that not. I always have been respectful of the rules. When I was a child I create rules for my bedroom and did schedule a time to study after school.

    2. I believe that they should take into account three points:
    The first, establish norms or rules of coexistence since early age.
    Second, establishing rules does not mean controlling or punishing, on the contrary, its meaning is related to the reflection of our actions.
    Third, the rules of coexistence apply to all members of a family or, in this case, the educational community.

    ‘What Do You Think’
    1.Because it recognizes that human beings have different types of intelligence and that none is better than the other, on the contrary, these could complement each other.

    2.Actually in the country the issue is just beginning to be worked on. Perhaps in the private sector it has been around for more years, but in terms of public education, the issue has only been a trend in recent years. Our teachers have been trained in a traditional way and are just now being retrained taking into account the multiple intelligences.

    3.I think it can be done with practice but also with discipline. I would do these three basic things:
    -Relate to people who have a type of intelligence different from mine.
    -Inform me about the various types of intelligence.
    -Daring to do something that I didn’t need to have planned. This will get me out of my comfort zone.

      Great job, Catheryn, keep participating this way. I agree with the fact that human beings have different types of intelligence.

    1. I would wait to receive double Marshmallow because It is my favorite candies. But, if it were not my favorite sweet, I would eat immediately.
    2. The teachers and parents can be helping the kids recognizing and discussing their emotions to lays a foundation for their self-regulation.
    Some activities to develop emotional intelligence:
    •Discuss emotions and experiences
    •Practice identifying emotions
    •Teach coping skills
    •Practice gratitude
    Developing emotional intelligence enables us to manage emotions effectively and avoid negative behaviors

    1. Because it identifies different types of intelligence such as Linguistic – verbal, Visual-spatial, Musical, and among others. The old way of thinking was only based on IQ. But, according to the advances of science in Psychology, it has been discovered that people have different types of intelligence to face life.
    2. No, in Peru there is no state policy in education on the development of multiple intelligences. Nor does the educational system include the development of multiple intelligences because the State works with an education model that does not allow the development of different musical, artistic, and linguistic skills.
    3. First I have to identify some weaknesses in the development of multiple intelligences (IM) and then practice. Some activities that would help develop IM.
    •Play chess, it allows reinforcing the spatial capacity
    •Play a musical instrument
    •Using mind maps
    •Practice karate

      Raul, I really enjoyed that article about those ways to foster emotional intelligence.

    1. I think I would not have eaten the marshmallow inmediately becuse I would have liked to eat twice as much. It would only have been a matter of time.
    2. I believe that emotional intelligence should be taught fron chindren, having clear rules of coexistence, having concrete explanations of why something is or is not, giving the opportunity to reflect on our actions and above all teach by example, and most importantly in an atmosphere or tranquility and affection.
    3. I believe that unit is called “A new generation of thinking”, because the new generations face life in conditions of new changes, especally technological changes, in a more dynamic and competitive social context. Therefore, requires means or tools to function properly, regarding their self-confidence, empathy, moderation, self-awareness, hope and optimism, whis allows them to recognize that all people have diferent and vauable skills and that we learn from everyone.
    4. The Peruvian educational system in its pedagogical proposal takes this approach of emotional intelligences, recognizing an individual with different potentials and competencies to learn and function in society, even more, in our country that has a multicultural wealth. It is a process that is built day by day.
    5. Well, I think I ate the marshmallow!, because I lack some patience in the things I do, and I would start by reflecting and giving myself some time to do before making a decision.

      Dear Laura, good job and ideas. Keep participating. I strongly agree with you when you state that emotional intelligence should be taught since we are kids.

    1.I think I would not have eaten the marshmallow. Always, I have tried to be respectful of the rules and would have accepted the conditions to obtain double marshmallow. Also, I try a lot to never been impulsive in my actions.

    2. Emotional intelligence is a skill that is learned from a very young age. But, in addition, I believe that it´s learning never finished.
    I think that you learn in practice, it is not theory. Children must observe consistent behaviors in their parents and teachers, and grow up in environments with clear rules.
    Modern education has shown that punishments are not effective. I´m convinced that conversation and spaces for reflection are necessary a learning mechanism to develop emotional intelligence.

    1. Is called “A new generation of thinking” because it´s a different way of thinking, according to the evolution of the times. I think that life is not only A and B in terms of the hemispheres in which thoughts occur in the brain, humans are more complex, according to researchs.
    Now, we know that people are not only valuable for their IQ but for their emotional intelligence. Now people all have a value and there are a lot of types of intelligences that allows people to reach success.

    2.I believe that this type of thinking is not yet valued. For example, there are schools (very few) whose vision is aimed at emphasizing that children have different types of inteligence.
    The Peruvian educational system is still very directed towards the intellectual side and does not value intelligence in artistic talents, for example. This is why we continue being an underdeveloped country in which we do not value the cultural differences.

    3.The way to solve weaknesses is, first, to identify them. Later, define which ones you are interested in prioritizing.
    I would be interested in developing my musical intelligence. To move forward, the first thing is to be clear that it will not be easy and then I have to put all my energy to advance.

    1. Yes. A person’s fate cannot be determined solely by a test of your ability at 5 years to resist the temptation of one marshmallow for 15 minutes to obtain two marshmallows.
    2. Teaching young people skills like active listening, self-awareness, and empathy can prepare them to be successful both academically and socially.
    3. Because emotional stability is more important than IQ in determining a person’s success in life.
    4. It used to be believed that cognitive intelligence was more important to being successful in life.
    5. No, because there are no educational policies in that sense.
    6. No, there are many reasons, budgetary, political, etc.
    7. They could be:
    • Work cooperatively in groups.
    • Group dynamics that promote mutual knowledge.
    • Co-evaluate
    • Work in group projects where each student assumes a role in relation to their most developed skills.
    • Participation in social projection.
    • Promote debates, presentation of their opinions.
    • Identify the feelings of others.

      Great ideas, Enrique. Just keep extending your ideas. I personally agree with you when you state that a person’s fate cannot be tested just by a test.

    Here our ‘Critical Thinking’ questions:
    1. If you were one of the children in the Marshmallow Challenge, would you have eaten the marshmallow immediately? Why or why not?
    In my case, I think that I had eaten the marshmallow after that kind man to come back, because I had had a prize, another marshmallow. When I was a child I had respect by another person, if somebody ask me a favor I liked help them.
    2. How do you think emotional intelligence can be taught at home and in school?
    I think that emotional intelligence is taught at home, it depends of the surroundings and good relationships, how old people says the education start at home, currently it has changed and it has produced fails in the society.
    And ‘What Do You Think’:
    1. Why do you think this unit is called ‘A New Generation of Thinking’? How does it differ from the old way of thinking?
    A new generation of thinking, because in the past the way to think is different in the present. For example, in the past allied left brain and right brain with the behavior, in addition that right brain thought an emotional person with a lot of attitudes in art. However, it has changed because present studies are different.
    2. Does your country or society encourage this new way of thinking? Does your education system benefit people with different types of intelligences? Why or why not?
    My country has un old system, fortunately exist some institutes where it is possible to change because they have open mind a new way of thinking. Unfortunately, it is private system, because the public system has some difficult in a change. It should be to propose by our government. Finally, I would like to say that the education is the unique way to grown how country.
    3. How can you develop the intelligences that you are weak at? Suggest some activities.
    In my particular case, I like to read some cultural news and currents. I think that reading is a good way to develop the intelligences. Also, I like to complete a good Sudoku.
