To Be a Better Leader, Learn How to Learn

To Be a Better Leader, Learn How to Learn | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

Here’s the problem: More than ever before, change is the rule, not the exception, in business. Globalization means more competition. The technology that makes you better than your competition today is obsolete tomorrow. Any knowledge you already possess is depreciating at an accelerating rate. How do you cope with the instability of it all?

Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

It's an interesting time this era of rapid technology changes, globalization and connected social learning networks. I often hear in business and education, this is how we have always done it. I agree that lessons learned are extremely important. However,  I also think that we need to be creative enough to visualize new ways of reaching our goals that are possibly different but more efficient or effective. Being creative and adaptive to change is what makes organizations unique, progressive and ultimately successful. If you think of yourself and your place of work as learning leaders, this I believe opens the door to creative ideas and innovations that can be very fruitful. Let's not only be learners, let's open the door to be learners who want to explore new, creative and courageous ways of doing business or educating. I believe this will ultimately lead to personal and professional growth and benefit your place of work and ultimately the reason why we were hired.

Excellent tips!

 

I would like to offer one key philosophy that we at our company have been offering to our leaders.....Learning is not enough, we as leaders need to be constantly learning, unlearning, and re-learning.  The game has changed and the rules are evolving by the minute. 

 

Keep your running shoes on, the ride is exciting as long as you remain open, flexible, and adaptable to change.  Remember, if it is difficult...you are about to grow and learn something new. 

 

Hope you enjoy the article and my humble nuggets:)

 

Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

Christopher Janney's curator insight, May 28, 2014 8:23 AM

The way we understand leadership today needs to evolve. Understanding that what you once knew that got you where you are is not enough to keep going is important. Understanding the new responsibilities and expectations of leaders is important. For instance, being a good leader sometimes means being a good follower. And as this article points out, a good leader is a consummate learner. Without that, the things you are leading people to have already passed and others are already on to the next thing.

We need to teach 10 million Canadians to code or we’ll get left behind - The Globe and Mail

Coding education in schools can no longer be considered a unique competitive advantage, but as the minimum standard
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:
Coding is a valuable skill to have now and beyond. Knowledge and skill building in all areas of technology (including coding) is one skill that you can bank on. In other words, investing in skills that enhance or deepen technology knowledge such as coding is in high demand and will harvest a return on that investment.

According to the manager of Google Apps for Education, in the next 50 years technology will bring many advances, which will help to improve the education for everyone around the world, making it more accessible.

Innovate My School - Four ways to support Music lessons with iPads | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
Perhaps, however, Music teachers have an advantage. While other subject teachers are more accustomed to books, videos and websites as resources, Music teachers are accustomed to using a much wider gamut of tools - instruments. If we can encourage Music teachers to view the iPad as another instrument and a vehicle by which children can make genuinely music progress, then we are well on the way to making the most of this 21st century resource.

So, how can music teachers deliver real learning with the Apple iPad?

Technology has radically transformed and revolutionized education. From education 1.0 where technology was hardly used to education 3.0 where digitally reigns, learners are becoming more dependent on web technologies to help them with their learning. Of course there are always side effects to any new innovation but when it comes to education the advantages of embracing technology way outnumber its inconveniences. The infographic below from the folks in Pumpic provides some key insights regarding the use of technology especially the mobile one in kids learning. It also suggests some interesting ways to use smartphones and tablets to boost kids’ education and features a number of apps to use in this regard.
