2: “If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play” John Cleese “Because, as we all know, it’s easier to do trivial things that are urgent than it is to do important things that are not urgent, like thinking. And it’s also easier to do little things we know we can do than to start on big things that we’re not so sure about.” John Cleese | Too true!

3: Learning through play and calculated risk taking should be familiar because we were all children once and they are very good at it. So why are adults so uncomfortable with it? and why have we forgotten the soft skills we learned as children?

4: Squirrel monkey play fighting: making the case for a cognitive training function for play pp. 161-182 By Maxeen Biben Squirrel monkey play fighting: making the case for a cognitive training function for play Evolutionary, Comparative and Ecological Perspectives By Maxeen Biben Publisher: Cambridge University Press Print Publication Year: 1998 Online Publication Date: January 2009 Online ISBN: 9780511608575 Hardback ISBN: 9780521583831 Paperback ISBN: 9780521586566 Chapter DOI: Subjects: Animal behaviour, Zoology

5: Saimiri play in wild, semi-wild, and captive environments, Squirrel monkey play behavior was first described almost 30 years ago in studies by Frank DuMond (1968) and John Baldwin (1969, 1971). The play behaviors observed were confirmed by Baldwin's observations of wild squirrel monkeys in Panama and Costa Rica & at the National Institutes of Health facility at Poolesville, Maryland. Monkeys in both indoor and outdoor enclosures were found to play the same as from the earlier published descriptions. Frequency of play, responding to environmental stressors such as food shortages, was variable. Infants start to reach out to each other in rudimentary play while mounted on the backs of mothers who are resting side by side, later the infants slide off their mothers' backs, and wrestle vigorously beside the mothers. Nervous mothers retrieve very young infants from these earliest play fights; but later it is rare for a mother to intervene, even if the play gets rough.

10: Email sent: 24/11/2012 To:,, Cc: Dearest Fellow Testers of Emerging Technology... I had an idea, can we share our findings on using the new software we are playing with? By that I mean useful hints that may cut down the amount of fiddling we are all doing trying out each one to see if it could work for our specialist subjects, for example: Issuu: This program appears to be a giant bookcase where all documents have to be converted and uploaded as documents, it took me a while to work out that it is only PDF documents this software recognises as a document. Mixbook: Again all documents, or photos you want to add must be converted first, I found the PNG format quite helpful.

11: To:, laurajgcollins@ Best WishesJenny Petermann | Prezi: Excellent with the zoom software for adding text, documents, powerpoint and photos but I cannot get it to link to anyother external URL than Utube. Arrgh, you have no idea how many times I have tried to add Laurens Shutterfly page or Adrians Animoto, all I can do is type it in, but cannot seem to get a hyperlink... Skydrive: This one is totaly self explanitory, even I didn't have to play too much. Best of all I think it will take basically any file type and share each file with whom ever you specify. Dropbox: Automatically takes all files that change in my "Cert Ed Folder" on my own home computer and upload them to one place, for example if I edit something on another computer (or my phone) it will just upload it to dropbox, when I open it again on anyother machine I will be able to view the "new" document or image. I hope some of this will save you all a bit of time, if anyone has found anything else please share.... Best wishes, Jenny Petermann

13: This gave me an idea...

16: Golden Circle Simon Sinek’s book, Start With Why, published in 2009. The model that codifies the three distinct and interdependent elements (Why, How, What) that makes any person or organization function at its highest ability. Based on the biology of human decision making, it demonstrates how the function of our limbic brain and the neocortex directly relate to the way in which people interact with each other and with organizations and brands in the formation of cultures and communities. See The Girl who Silenced the world for 5 Mins One amazing young Lady, very eloquently demonstrating the power of "why" The MASS Project looks at the importance of the soft skills we seem to have lost in current times, skills that many employers require.

17: The key objectives of the Deloitte employability skills courses: To build the self-esteem and self-awareness of learners; to enable learners to experience the reality of life in the workplace; to develop the attitudes and behaviours required in the workplace; to develop learners’ interpersonal skills, written and verbal communication skills and team working skills. Learning is based around practical exercises, simulations, role plays and scenarios that replicate real employment and workplace situations. Employability skills courses focus not only on helping young people secure jobs, but also on helping them to retain and succeed in those jobs. The course contains the following units: Preparing for an Interview; Interview Skills; Self-assessment; Effectiveness at Work; Working in a Team; Investigating Rights and Responsibilities at work

18: the data, generating evidence through the data, and making claims to knowledge based on conclusions drawn from validated evidence." (McNiff: 2002:16) | Q: How does action research differ from ‘reflective practice’? A: There are many similarities. However, for something to legitimately claim to be ‘research’, there needs to be a process of systematic, critical and self-critical enquiry. Or to quote one of the principal action researchers of the day, Jean McNiff: "Action research (for that matter all kinds of research) is more than just doing activities. It is a form of practice which involves data gathering, reflection on the action as it is presented through

20: Kurt Lewin a professor at MIT, worked on the idea of action research in 1944, appearing in his 1946 paper Action Research & Minority Problems, today action research remains an umbrella term for a host of activities intended to foster change on the group, organizational, and even societal levels. Lewin's, organizational action research involves cross-functional teams who address deep-rooted organizational issues through recurring cycles of action and reflection.

21: Kurt Lewin [1890 - 1947].

22: Andragogy & Pedagogy: Dr Sandra Ratcliff Daffron 2003 created a table to compare the differences between teacher lead and learner lead learning entitled Andragogy vs Pedagogy, Malcolm S Knowles. I liked the fact that this document also refers to the intrinsic (andragogy) and extrinsic (pedagogy) motivational factors that affect us all in so any aspects of human life. |

23: Behaviorism: | Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov conducted experiments demonstrating the conditioning process by measuring the salivation of dogs. John B. Watson and graduate student Rosalie Raynor were interested in furthering Pavlov's research to show that emotional reactions could be classically conditioned in people. They conducted the "Little Albert" experiment to prove that humans also react to a conditioned response.

24: Humanism: Developed in the 1960 as a reaction to the Behaviourist Operant Conditioning Theory in which behaviour is believed to be the result of an action and reward. Humanism views learning as a more personal act to fulfill an individuals potential focusing primarily on freedom and dignity, the Humanists central belief is that people act with intentionality and values (Huit 2001). Humanists study people as a whole looking at how they personally develop over their lifespan, learning is personal and the teacher is a facilitator of self actualisation within a supportive and co-operative environment. Carl Rogers Facilitation Theory views teachers as facilitators by creating an environment where learners feel safe and comfortable as does Abraham Maslow's Hierachy of Needs.

25: Constructivism: Learning is an active process where we construct our own ideas and meanings based on what we already know from previous experience - Active Learning. Lev Vygotsky Social Development Theory, Jean Piaget's Cognitive Development Theory. John Dewey- Dewey connects the need for experience and reflection, within community and learning environments. Kolb's Experiential Learning Cycle is also based on the requirements of experience and reflection. Geoff Petty - believes that active learning creates deeper personal learning built on prior knowledge challenging students within a supportive environment; (Rogers Facilitation theory). Constructive teaching methods encourage students to make mistakes because it's mistakes that enhance and inform future learning experiences.

26: Frederick Herzberg Was an American psychologist who is most famous for introducing job enrichment and he proposed the Motivation-Hygiene Theory, also known as the Two factor theory (1959) of job satisfaction. According to his theory, people are influenced by two sets of factors: Motivator Factors Hygiene Factors Achievement Pay and Benefits Recognition Company Policy and Administration Relationships with colleagues Work Itself Supervision Responsibility Promotion Growth |
