9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

The label of “21st Century learning” is vague, and is an idea that we here at TeachThought like to take a swing at as often as possible, including:


– Weighing the magic of technology with its incredible cost and complexity

– Underscoring the potential for well thought-out instructional design

– Considering the considerable potential of social media platforms against its apparent divergence from academic learning

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, August 1, 2013 8:34 AM

In a world where we are being inundated with data and information, I have noticed that we are losing a bit of our foundational interpersonal skills.

 

Every day I challenge myself to disconnect from technology to genuinely connect with the people who I am with.  Are you with me?  What are your thoughts?

 

Make it a great day!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 1, 2013 7:46 PM

The Management Style of Gen Y

The Management Style of Gen Y | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Micro-management, hierarchy and a demand for authority were all qualities that defined the workplace of the baby-boomers and the members of Gen X, but this pyramid-like work structure is fast becoming obsolete for Gen Y.

Anne Egros's curator insight, August 22, 2013 8:05 AM

The millennial management style is all about coaching the individual and mentoring employees to understand how their creativity can produce benefit of the team.


Gen Y managers focus on the individual and their interests, personal engagement is a defining factor for the millennial workforce.

The Learning Factor's curator insight, August 28, 2013 1:42 AM

Despite their reputation for being pampered, a close look at the Generation Ys (a.k.a. Millennials) in your company may reveal more pragmatism than privilege.


Recent surveys reveal that since 2006 Millennials have become more realistic about job expectations. In fact, Gen Ys have the lowest expectations of all four workforce generations when it comes to “soft” workplace benefits, such as a pleasant work environment, liking the people they work with, or having flexible hours.


Heavily scheduled and conditioned to achieve since childhood, Gen Y employees are natural multi-taskers, well-prepared to handle extra work. Tell the young people in your firm that it’s time to be entrepreneurial inside the organization. Ask them to show you how they can be useful and what extra projects they can take on. Expect them to rise to the challenge, and many of them will.

Eugene Fernandez's insight:

A summary by Scharmer of his work on Theory U. The value lies in paying attention to both the inner & outer world and engaging the mind, heart and spirit in our actions. Theory U simple and elegant model draws on a large body of work, including Wilber's Integral Theory, Senge's work on Systems Dynamics and Issac's work on Dialogue to name a few. I particularly value his insights on Generative Listening and along with Issac's work on Dialogue I apply this with senior teams to improve their functioning..

The smart leaders understand the concept of following from the front, that is, removing obstacles from the paths of employees to help them become successful.  Scaring your employees into doing what you want is a failed approach to leadership yet unfortunately this is how many of our companies were created; it’s time to evolve this way of leading.

While there are many qualities that distinguish millennials from other generations, "One of the key things to remember, he [the author] said, is that millennials are highly collaborative."  However, collaborative doesn't mean they are skilled at communicating, at least outside of today's common social media forums.  Generation Y also appreciates transparency.  Good points to consider in today's blended workforce.
