PERMA理論

Teaching Character and Creating Positive Classrooms

Relay Graduate School of Education

のweek2の半分。

今日、勉強したこと。

・昨日やった24のstrengthうちの上位を意識して伸ばそうとすることがhapinessにつながる。
(短所を克服しようとするのではなく。)

私の長所TOP3はVIA Serveyで

1 Kindness

Doing favors and good deeds for others; helping them; taking care of them.

2 Creativity

Thinking of novel and productive ways to conceptualize and do things; includes artistic achievement but is not limited to it.

3 Humor

Liking to laugh and tease; bringing smiles to other people; seeing the light side; making (not necessarily telling) jokes


だったから、明日からこの3つを特に行動に移す。


・学校のaimは二つ。1つはlearning、2つはwell-beingを促す場、つまりそれはPERMAを伸ばすこと。

Here then is well-being theory: well-being is a construct; and well-being, not happiness, is the topic of positive psychology. Well-being has five measurable elements (PERMA) that count toward it:


  • Positive emotion (Of which happiness and life satisfaction are all aspects)
  • Engagement
  • Relationships
  • Meaning and purpose
  • Accomplishment

ようは、楽しさにあふれ、時間を忘れるほど(ここではflowとしている)没頭できるものがあり、人間関係が良好で、生きることに意味と目的を与える場、それが学校であり、この4つを成せば達成へとつながると、逆に達成感があれば、この4つが満たされるという論理。

従来のPositive PsychologyはLife satisfactionのみに焦点をあてていたので、前向きな人が幸せになれるという誤解を生んだ。







ひとまず、子供たちのVIAにはservey for youthという中高生用の調査もあるので、これを子供たちにやってもらい、自分の長所TOP3を客観的に知る。その上で、それらを特に意識して1週間行動するように促す。

引き続き、Couseraでお勉強中です。
以前はedXで講座を取っていましたが、appも使いやすいcauseraの方を活用しています。
先生用のコースが多いのも嬉しいです。

さて、前回のTechnologyの方がWeek3まで行ったので、今日はPositive Psychologyに近いコースのDay1をやりました。

This course has one objective: to prepare you to integrate character into your work with young people – regardless of whether you’re an educator, coach, school leader, parent or a college student studying to be a teacher.
Week1は、VIA Surveyというもので、以下のサイトに生き、100ほどの質問に答えなければなりません。


ちょっと面倒でしたが、このアンケート後に24の特性のうち、自分の特性に近いものから順位付けをしてくれるというものです。後のビデオにもありましたが永久的というより、今の状況や環境にいる自分を見るのに良いかな、と思いました。

1 Kindness

Doing favors and good deeds for others; helping them; taking care of them.

2 Creativity

Thinking of novel and productive ways to conceptualize and do things; includes artistic achievement but is not limited to it.

3 Humor

Liking to laugh and tease; bringing smiles to other people; seeing the light side; making (not necessarily telling) jokes.


という結果でした。


Love of learningが以外と下位だったのが地味にショックでしたが、同じ内容の質問を様々な表現で聞いてくるのが面白いserveyでした。


ちょっと時間がかかるので、皆さんのお休みの日などにどうぞ!!

Technology Enriched Teaching

冬は、部活が早く終わるので九時前には帰宅できる日があります。
なので、冬だけはcouseraでコースを取っています。50$近くでcertificateをもらえたりもします。

今回は、三つのコースに申し込みました。ちょうど11月から新しいタームに入る講座が多いので、タイミングも良かったです。
今日は、

Technology Enriched Teaching

by Arizona State University

というコースのDay3まで完了。

最初は、小芝居のビデオいらないなぁ・・・と思っていたけど、先生役のお兄さんが「テクノロジー使えっていう上からプレッシャーが・・・」と教卓で悩んでいるのを見ると、ICT改革の追われる日本も同じだよ~と段々親近感が湧いてきました。


復習

Newbieの使い方

Control technology or it will control you.

Balance happens when you are overcomes driven.

Nothing comes in front of your professional experties.

Don't give students too much freedom.

Follow specific curriculum. (Sets goals for learners first.)



具体的なソフトとかの紹介があるといいなぁ。。。
