Emotions are Contagious

Emotional Contagiousness: + Social Collective Emotion creates the positive energy found in THE WAVE, FLASH MOBS or even LIP DUBS

With the trend in schools towards text messaging, e-mails home and blogs there is still a need for a little face to face interaction in order to solidify the relationship between team members.

About two weeks ago I had the pleasure (preconcussion) of attending EdcampYYC. I have to tell you I was super stoked to attend this event not just for the content but for the opportunity to connect and chat with profs and students I had met during #etmooc.

I find I get the same excitement when it comes to Teachers Convention, Opening Day Mass and the District Hockey Game.
My primary job as a teacher and counsellor is to CONNECT WITH PEOPLE. Even if I move into a leadership role, Face to Face is still important.

  1. Erin,
    You were in that one?! Wow- I saw it before because a “friend” in Serbia was in that and when I saw it I was ecstatic to be able to finally ‘see’ him–lol…that was a great project and I wish I had taken that Mooc! Emotions are contagious! I love flash mobs 🙂
