A Learning Journal Is Your Map to Continuous Development

A Learning Journal Is Your Map to Continuous Development | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

A learning journal, when implemented on a consistent daily basis, can help you capture your learning by creating a time to be self-reflective of each day’s experiences. However small and seemingly unimportant these experiences are, these experiences can connect you to a specific learning that took place. (...)

By writing down and tracking your progress, you are able to review your progress at any point in time. Journaling is a great tool when you may be questioning your learning progression. Journaling can not only help you focus on your strengths, but can also help you determine what limitations you are currently working on that can have a positive impact on your overall performance. As a result, you will begin to see trends on how you best learn and develop so you can incorporate the right learning opportunities into your day.

(From the article): Feedback serves the purpose of enabling another to know where we stand and how they can grow.  After that, it’s up to them if they choose to listen, act or react.  Be a leader who gives others your best by giving feedback with heart and in service of them being and doing their very best.

(From the article): With more information flowing via computers and the Internet, there is now, more-not-less-demand for every manager to provide accurate and frequent feedback to every employee.  People want to know exactly what they need to do to perform well on the job. 

Gust MEES's curator insight, August 19, 1:06 AM

The more frequent the feedback, the easier it is to learn and improve


David Hain's curator insight, August 19, 1:57 AM

Without great feedback loops, it's really hard to grow intelligently - so why is are they in short supply in so many organisations?

Rethinking Rookies: Why Are More New Teachers Quitting Early? - EWA

What support does your district provide for new teachers? According to this article, it is critical.

From the text:

"Headden said a teacher in the first few years of his or her career is facing more pressure than previous generations of teachers because of higher stakes testing that have real consequences if students don’t perform well.

But Headden said the support to comfort a teacher through that stressful first year and provide effective teaching techniques and strategies doesn’t exist in most school districts."

Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development

Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Competency-based or “personalized” learning allows students to master skills at their own pace with innovative support systems and new technologies. This method saves time and money and improves learners’ retention. But students are only half of the equation.

 

===> When teachers receive personalized professional development, everybody wins. <===

 

Like their students, teachers have unique strengths and needs. And when a tool can specifically cater to those needs, it empowers teachers to flex their educational muscles.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.
