This week’s Ed. Quote is in honor of my creative daughter, on her birthday!

“Electricity is not only present in a magnificent thunderstorm
and dazzling lightning, but also in a lamp; so also, creativity
exists not only where it creates great historical works,
but also everywhere human imagination combines, changes,
and creates anything new.”
~Lev Vygotsky, 1930/1967, cited in Smolucha, 1992, p. 54

Fruits of the Spirit Teague

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. Abraham Lincoln, Thanksgiving Proclamation, 1863

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ November 18

“A collaborative perspective has the individual taking responsibility for constructing meaning while including the participation of others in confirming worthwhile knowledge. Meaningfulness and worthwhileness reflect the cognitive and social perspectives of an educational experience. Therefore, meaning and knowledge are both personally and socially constructed. This balanced integration of cognitive and collaborative learning processes, therefore, defines learning outcomes as both personally meaningful and socially worthwhile.” (Garrison, 1997, p. 18)

“Loneliness kills. It’s as powerful as smoking or alcoholism,” Robert Waldinger, Director on the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the world’s longest studies of adult life. “It’s not just the number of friends you have, and it’s not whether or not you’re in a committed relationship,” says Waldinger, “It’s the quality of your close relationships that matters.”
