Compelling, customized (I like personalized better, but it's not a "C")' connected, and competency-based lea earning will all be a part of the future of learning. And as learners become more independent and are given an environment that supports freedom of exploration, they will also become more self-determined. Sounds like Heutagogy!

LEADERSHIP COMES FROM THE HEART AND CONSIDERS THE HEARTS OF OTHERS - Six Qualities Leaders Need to Be Successful

LEADERSHIP COMES FROM THE HEART AND CONSIDERS THE HEARTS OF OTHERS - Six Qualities Leaders Need to Be Successful | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it


Leaders have to be able to flexibly adapt their strategies in line with their personal qualities, the company culture, and the situation. The new thinking about leadership emphasizes authenticity, openness, caring and flexibility.
A leader needs to be genuine and lead by example, understanding and is emotionally connected in order to inspire loyal followers.



Here six qualities a leader needs to be successful:

- A good leader lives by the same principles he expects of his followers
- Great leaders inspire us to reach for the stars and to become what we dream of.
- Good leaders show empathy - they take the time to listen to and connect emotionaly with followers at all levels
- The best leaders show passion, commitment, and dedication. They put the organization first and are willing to make personal sacrifices to achieve group goals that they highly value. They display self-discipline and unselfishness.
- A key quality of leadership is the ability to inspire others through emotional connection as well as rational arguments and explanation. Leaders articulate their vision in such a way that followers can see the big picture. Leadership involves engaging the whole person including the sense, thoughts, and emotions.
- Great leadership involves bringing out the best in the followers. Leaders create an organizational culture in which the strengths and potential of each individual are valued and recognized. 

These words sum it up so wonderful:

Leadership is not so much about technique and methods as it is 
about opening the heart. Leadership is about inspiration - of oneself 
and of others. Great leadership is about human experiences, not processes. Leadership is not a formula or a program, it is a human activity that comes from the heart and considers the hearts of others.
It is an attitude, not a routine.

—  Lance Secretan, Industry Week, October 12, 1998

Is Competency Based Education the Next Game Changer on the Horizon? | EmeringEdTech

Is Competency Based Education the Next Game Changer on the Horizon? | EmeringEdTech | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

“Competency-based education (CBE) awards academic credit based on mastery of clearly defined competencies. CBE replaces the conventional model in which time is fixed and learning is variable with a model in which the time is variable and the learning is fixed.

 

CBE is built around clearly defined competencies and measurable learning objectives that demonstrate mastery of those competencies. Measuring learning by competency is not new, but various challenges facing higher education, combined with new models and technologies, have brought a new focus on CBE.

 

A growing number of competency-based programs have been developed at all levels of instruction. CBE capitalizes on the potential of online learning, enabling new models that can reduce both the cost and time needed to earn credentials while better preparing students for their professional lives.”

The concept of homework as we have known it in the past is changing rapidly, since it often distorts the overall picture of learning.

Homework vs home vs work, underlined by learnIng. Homework was originally designed  as an extension of a lesson to reinforce  what was taught.

 

What if now students are becoming more self directed and self motivated?  Fast and easily assessible content disrupts the "teacher-dependent student" paradigm, allowing (and motivating) the  student to self learn and group learn (student-student) rather beyond the formal homework.

"It is the responsibility of all educators to model good digital citizenship for their students. Especially when it comes to copyright, plagiarism and intellectual property. The waters are murky. Not being familiar with online digital rights and responsibilities (hey, teachers did not grow up with the Internet being around), educators are wading through uncharted waters (hey, I did not know that I could not just google an image to use. If someone puts it up online it is free for the taking). That does not mean they can close their eyes and pretend life is the same or that the same rules apply to online versus offline use of copyrighted material with their students."
