To be a fearless, 360 leader you have to step outside of your comfort zone. The experience provides the opportunity for growth! #leadupchat #edchat #mschat 

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 17, 11:54 AM

Vygotsky talked of the Zone of Proximal Development, and this article is in line with that foundational philosophy about learning.  When we think about improving schools, both of Vygotsky and this article apply.  We need leaders, teachers, and students operating outside their comfort zone, taking risks, setting goals, and learning.  There is a danger in struggling schools to push too hard and move buying the productive zone for learning.  This article speaks well to that aspect of learning.  With good intentions, leaders at building, district, and state level often push a school and omits staff beyond the productive learning zone into the danger zone.  This is done through programs, initiatives, and monitoring often with the goal of providing support, but with the result of overwhelming the school and staff.

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference?

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference? | BCB | Scoop.it

In this age of abundance of information, shifting classroom pedagogy isn't nearly enough to make learning in school more relevant and authentic for the learner. Self-directed learning (andragogy), and self-determined learning (heutagogy) are the ideals necessary in making students "future ready" to live and learn in a web connected world.


While original research applied these concepts to mature learners, it has become apparent that even young children have an abundant capacity for recognizing and directing their own learning. Anyone who has observed toddlers learning how to walk and talk understand the motivation and skill development that quickly develops during these processes.


Considered by some to be on a learning continuum, self-directed learning and self-determined learning have at least one distinct difference. What is this difference, and why should educators care? - See more at: http://rtschuetz.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/self-directed-vs-self-determined.html?spref=tw#sthash.oSVChVeN.dpuf

Since "upwards of ninety percent of our learning will occur outside formal educational settings" (Jennings, 2010), in the age of abundance of information, students should be motivated to reflect on how they are learning. That is what is self-directed learning

  Re: Contact with School System Employees and Presence on School Property

Dear Ms. Cook:

     As you are very aware, I represent the Wilson County Schools. This letter is intended to provide you notice that you are no longer to communicate with school employees or set foot on the campus or property of the Wilson County Schools for any purpose whatsoever.

 

  Due to your harassing nature of communications with school employees, and your propensity to file unfounded complaints against school system employees, you are not to contact any school system employees or be present on the Wilson County Schools' property.  All communications regarding your pending due process petition, or otherwise involving any of your children, will be directed to, and received from, myself as the attorney for the Wilson County Schools. If you contact school system employees, they will not respond. If you disregard this letter and are present on school system property , you will be subject to criminal prosecution under the North Carolina criminal trespass laws (N.C. Gen. Stat. Ch. 14, Art. 22B). 


There are no circumstances under which school officials should have to fear baseless allegations or for their own safety, particularly from a parent with no children in the school system, while they are trying to go about their normal duties. There are significant potential consequences if you fail to regard this notice with the seriousness with which it is intended.


  The school system regrets that this action is necessary but adamantly believes it to be so, based on your conduct.


Ms. Dorothy Cook

This was sent as the result of the City of Wilson,NC Police Department Intake Officer S. Moore reviewing the evidence presented which included a portion of the"Due Process Petition  " required Court Case procedure  Resolution Meeting which took place 2.18/2013 Docket Number 13-EDC-07545 but changed by Wilson County Schools Attorney Rachel Hitch per said court documents to Docket Number 13-EDC-07547 allowed by NC OAH without proper procedures being filed. Officer S, Moore filed Police Report stating Dorothy Cook, Prose rep was" Assaulted" by Wilson County School Exceptional Children Director during the NC OAH required Court procedure.  There also was a complaint filed with the Wilson County Schools Board also. As well as with the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearing as the case was a Special Education Contested Case filed Prose because of the indigent financial economic status of the family which as a result there was no financial means of paying for an attorney and all the "free" legal aid assistance including some neighboring area law schools that sometimes take cases of their interest had no available assistance and or such organizations as ECAC had limited intended issues they were assisting with and some was just simply not in the family jurisdiction to help. As the damages and harm done to Dorothy Cook by WCS Officials during and in direct relations with said NC OAH Special Education Contested Court Case 13-EDC-07545 was the reason that the presiding Judge Augustus Elkins allowed Prose Rep. Dorothy Cook to withdraw her case 13-EDC-07545 without prejudice as due to the severity of harm and damages done she could not continue with said case. As WCS attorney February 18,2013 dated letter and its effects did have and continue to have extreme negative effects even to the added point that the school aged children of Dorothy Cook is denied and deprived of their Human RIGHT to enroll and attend Wilson County Public School  a NC Public School  for several years continually as the results of the harm and damage done to their parent during and directly associated with said case and Wilson County Schools Officials she can no longer home her children and has given Wilson County Schools attorney and many others but non were or are Wilson County Schools Employees notice of such and they know as special needs children that education should be consistent but they are killing these children by educational neglect as NC Public Schools are not held accountable by NC Attendance Compulsory Law as the criminals they are and the NC BODY OF GOVERNMENT CONTINUES TO ALLOW IT TO BE DONE but in the history of North Carolina their has never been a "WHITE" child(ren) and or their parent denied and deprived and education and made to receive no education at all that was school aged qualified , special needs qualified and a NC District Court Judge has stated per his findings in a separate but related court case that the parent had met all that is required by her per NC law for the child(ren) to be enrolled and attending NC Public Schools the LEA which the parent and her school age children reside in and has mad and continue to make requests for her children to be enrolled and attend Wilson County Public Schools to Rachel Hitch only per her February 18,2013 DATED LETTER OF REPRISAL  as written in part above but no such instruction has been provided and as a result even the more harm and damages occur daily as their determination to learn is destroyed as when hope is removed when no education at ALL continues and their hearts breaks they cry both inside and out and not even the Courts per Wilson ,NC District Attorney Office states has any jurisdiction to criminally prosecute the Wilson County Public Schools Officials as there is no law on the Book to prosecute them criminally by but there is for parents, guardians and students that apply by usage of NC Compulsory Attendance Law but again NC Public Schools Officials such as Wilson County Schools does not apply at all. As parent made contact with the Wilson County Department of Social Services Child Protective Services for help with getting child(ren) in school it was stated she was not unfit parent therefore their is nothing they can do as they have no jurisdiction over or in the Wilson County Schools System themselves. Parent contacted Juvenile Delinquency Department Wilson,NC , Mr. Mike Walston in regards to the children possibility of having charges filed against them well 1 child at that time as she still is a minor in elementary school grade but Mr. Mike Walston said It appears she was not allowed to attend school which makes the situation much different its not that she is not willing or trying to attend school so he didn't there would be any reason for charges against her as she is now 12 years old and her highest grade graduated is the 3th grade and 2014-2015 is the 3rd nc public school year she is being denied and deprived her right to attend nc public schools for complete nc public school yea at a time!   I ASK IS IT A CRIME OR NOT ?   THIS IS OPEN LETTER NC HAS BEEN ASKED TO CHANGE THE NC COMPULSORY ATTENDANCE LAW TO INCLUDE THE NCPUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS AS THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN TO ANY OTHER PARENT AND CHILDREN WITH A  CRIMINAL MEANS OF EQUAL PROSECUTION BEING AVAILABLE AS IT IS A CRIME THAT IS ONLY NOW IN NC PROSECUTIABLE CRIMINALLY BY LAW IF A PARENT , GUARDIAN AND OR STUDENT IS ALLEGED AS BEING IN VIOLATION OF IT BY NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS AND AS SUCH THE NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS ARE ABUSING ITS POWER KNOWING THEY ARE NOT INCLUDED AND USING IT JIM CROW SWING SO LOW TO EDUCATE THE NIGGERS NOT AS NOT DONE IN PAST TIMES TO KEEP AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILDREN FROM BEING EDUCATED IN THE NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS SYSTEM !

These strategies are the essential foundation of what all good teachers do.  Every article and book that I have read about school improvement and effective teaching seems for focus on these same strategies.  We know it...but do we do it?  WITH FIDELITY?  I think that is often where it breaks down. These strategies need to be a part of EVERY lesson...EVERY day. They become highly effective when they are implemented consistently and intentionally.  With all teachers are required to do, it is easy to lose focus on intentionally using these effective strategies.

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching | BCB | Scoop.it

Creativity is about fresh thinking. It doesn’t have to be new to the whole of humanity— though that’s always a bonus— but certainly to the person whose work it is. Creativity also involves making critical judgments about whether what you’re working on is any good, be it a theorem, a design, or a poem. Creative work often passes through typical phases. Sometimes what you end up with is not what you had in mind when you started. It’s a dynamic process that often involves making new connections, crossing disciplines, and using metaphors and analogies. 

.

Being creative is not just about having off-the-wall ideas and letting your imagination run free. It may involve all of that, but it also involves refining, testing, and focusing what you’re doing. It’s about original thinking on the part of the individual, and it’s also about judging critically whether the work in process is taking the right shape and is worthwhile, at least for the person producing it.

Characteristics of the Innovator's Mindset  | Innovation | CHANGE | GrowthMindSet | BCB | Scoop.it

Recently I explored the notion of the “Innovator’s Mindset”, and have thought a lot about this idea.  As I look to write on the topic of “Leading Innovative Change” within schools, we are looking to develop educators as innovators.  To be innovative, you have to look at yourself as an innovator first, and to create schools that embody this mindset as a “culture”, we must develop this in individuals first.

Dr. Melissa A. Bordogna's curator insight, March 26, 1:59 AM

At a glance, I thought this a helpful infographic.  It also made me think of the types of feedback I give my students.  In addtion to using a rubric (marking criteria), I tend to provide a fair bit of written feedback.  

How about you...Which types of feedback have you found to be very effective in terms of student learning (as oppose to time-saving for us)?

Karen Ellis's curator insight, April 1, 6:57 PM

Designing and planning assesment in online learning is very important.  This infographic reminds us of the importance of making the task student centric and that  ongoing feedback is critical.
