Yes, and YES!!! Critical thinking really takes risk, because someone is likely to disagree with you. How much better it is, however, to have a well thought opinion and stand alone, than to be a lemming.

A really excellent article on something that can be hard to define and practice, and yet is such an essential skill for life.   I really like the distinction Terry Heick makes between thought and knowledge and the interplay between them.

Javier Antonio Bellina's curator insight, June 25, 2014 11:38 AM

El pensamiento crítico requiere coraje, actitud y valor que no se fomenta en los sistemas educativos en general debido a los riesgos que conlleva.

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers?

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs


Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.


Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.

Les termes de coaching et mentoring sont souvent utilisés et je n'avais pas vraiment réfléchi à la différence des deux approches. Si elles se basent toutes deux sur des échanges informels, elles ont un périmètre et des objectifs différents très bien expliqués dans l'article.


Cela va m'aider dans le mentoring que j'effectue autour du digital, activité que j'ai acceptée sant trop connaître les principes.

Moral Character Matters

Moral Character Matters | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
There’s a direct correlation between moral character and success. We lose something very important when character is treated as an afterthought.

(From the article): Most importantly, every day that you display weak character, you’re letting yourself down. You must answer to your conscience every minute of every day. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!”
