Teacherpreneurs: Changing education from the inside out | CTQ

Teacherpreneurs: Changing education from the inside out | CTQ | Community Learning Centres | Scoop.it

What if teachers could lead without leaving the classroom—and in doing so, incubate and execute their own policy and pedagogical ideas?

In recent years, the Center for Teaching Quality has supported two dozen teacherpreneurs — expert teachers who typically have a reduced teaching load of 50% — to lead bold reforms at the school, district, state and national levels. In partnership with districts (and with philanthropic financial support), teacherpreneurs like Noah Zeichner, Ali Wright, Jessica Cuthbertson and Julie Hiltz have achieved remarkable results for students, schools and the profession.

These classroom experts have generated powerful proof points for CTQ’s bold brand of teacher leadership, documented in a series of case studies. Their experiences have also yielded “lessons learned” that we can share with others interested in this model:

 

Extra time yields extraordinary results. 


The best teacherpreneurs “lead from the middle.


Technology keeps teacher leaders connected with the world while based in the classroom.


Relationships matter.


Blurring the lines between policy and practice makes each stronger.


When educators can teach and lead, they and their schools benefit.

As a result of their work to solve local challenges teachpreneurs are making waves; addressing their challenges and goals by designing, supporting, and systematising new roles and leadership pathways.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 10:12 AM

I chose this resources because I was interested in the concept of "teacherpreneurs". The opportunity to be afforded the time to engage in policy development and leadership roles is certainly terrific. I've always felt the influence from the ground level (teachers) is seldom felt. Instead, influence remains with the research community and union organizations. Of the specific points described in this article is that "The best teacherpreneurs lead from the middle". Teachers respond to others who are dealing with the same pressures and stresses associated with teaching. 

Shelly Reckow VanVoorst's curator insight, October 25, 2015 5:57 PM

I scooped this article because more and more the topic of teacherpreneurs is coming up.  I like the idea of teachers as leaders, and even helping with policies.  It will be interesting to see if this expands more in the future. I hope that teachers reading this article watch this course of study/action closely and take part in it when they can, as we need more teachers to move into leadership and even into advocacy roles for education.

Narcissism Unleashed - Association for Psychological Science

Narcissism Unleashed - Association for Psychological Science | Community Learning Centres | Scoop.it

In a sense, narcissism is the dark side of individualism — freedom without responsibility, relationships without personal sacrifice, and positive self-views without grounding in reality.

 

What comes next? How will narcissism further evolve? In order to maintain elevated self-views in a world with the standard economic and social pathways blocked, individuals will need to migrate into other social realms that are less constrained by reality. For example, individuals could move to online social realities where they can succeed (e.g., social networking, gaming, Reddit), fantasy or “geek” subcultures (e.g., science fiction, live action role-playing), or other alternatives. In essence, growing income inequality in the real world could lead a population of narcissists to feed their self-views in fantasy cultures.

"In a sense, narcissism is the dark side of individualism — freedom without responsibility, relationships without personal sacrifice, and positive self-views without grounding in reality."  This particular sentence struck me.  We as a society, have been raised to believe in individualism and success to be determined by the quantity one has rather than the quality of one's life.  I never realized that narcissism was actually increasing in prevalence and to take it a step further I question what aspect epigentics may play in future generations.  I have often seen children, particularly in a school setting, that always receive positive feedback because we are afraid to upset them, upset their parents, rock the boat....etc.  Employees are the same way.  I wonder what ever happened to real?  I hear others value it beyond riches, but to see this article, it seems they are very far and few between.

Everyday the spirits of millions of people die at the front door of their workplace. There is an epidemic of workers who are uninterested and disengaged from the work they do, and the cost to the U.S. economy has been pegged at over $300 billion annually. According to a recent survey from Deloitte, only 20% of people say they are truly passionate about their work, and Gallup surveys show the vast majority of workers are disengaged, with an estimated 23 million “actively disengaged.”

“Teaching and facilitating are the ultimate ways to reach excellent mental conditioning and to challenge students to become better all-round learners for life.

 

You can help your students reach their potential as a Sprinter or Olympic learner. The analogy is simple: begin with the end in mind, recognizing that all teaching, all learning, all preparation requires time, training, and transitions.

- Real-world scenario: students assume roles in real-world scenarios.

 

- Authentic, complex process: scenarios reflect complex and ambiguity of real-world challenges.

 

- Higher-order thinking: requires critical thinking, analytic reasoning, and problem solving.

 

- Authentic performance: the ‘product’ reflects what a professional would produce.

 

- Transparent evaluation criteria: the learning outcomes drive the creation of the task.

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning?

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning? | Community Learning Centres | Scoop.it
Author David Price writes: "If schools are coming into direct competition with the learning opportunities available in the informal social space, it has to be said that this is a pressure, which barely registers within the political discourse.

 

In the following pages, Price describes three cases across the globe — in London, Sydney, San Diego — that have mapped a vision that answers the questions above. Here’s what they have in common:

 

- By insisting that their teachers and mentors share their learning, all three have de-privatized teaching and learning.

 

- By opening up the commons, and by designing workspaces without walls, they have brought Edison’s ‘machine-shop culture’ into education.

 

- By bringing into the commons, experts, parents and investors, they have given an authenticity to the work of their students that is impossible to simulate in an enclosed classroom.

 

- By modelling collaborative working to their students they have fostered the peer learning which is at the heart of ‘open’.

 

- By emphasizing adult and real-world connections, they ensure that students are preparing for the world beyond school by being in that world.

 

- By making their expertise and intellectual property freely available, they have created high demand from their peers and ensured that knowledge travels fast.

 

- By seeing technology not simply as an aide to learning but as the imperative for change, they ensure that their programs are relevant to societal needs and societal shifts.

 

- By trusting in their staff and students, and by giving them freedom and responsibility in equal measure, they have fostered a culture of learning that rewards respectful challenge, shuns unnecessary deference, and therefore constantly stays in motion.

Wondering what is on the horizon for education.... Significant upheaval, hacking our own learning, and the ability by our students to learn by....
compiling their own learning playlist, putting together units of study that appeal to their passions, (and) the one-size-fits-all model of high school will appear alarmingly anachronistic... Great quote by the Singapore Minister of Eduction -- “The educational paradigm of our parents’ generation, which emphasized the transmission of knowledge, is quickly being overtaken by a very different paradigm. This new concept of educational success focuses on the nurturing of key skills and competencies such as the ability to seek, to curate and to synthesize information; to create and innovate; to work in diverse cross-cultural teams; as well as to appreciate global issues within the local context.”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 14, 2014 1:43 PM

Sometimes what is most obvious is what we do not see readily. Whitehead suggested this was the case, but other, including the Buddha and Jesus, said similar things. We need to examine what we are doing, be aware of what we want from education. This takes leadership that moves away from easy, facile ways of doing things with 7 habits, 4 methods, etc. and makes real and meaningful change.

 

We simply cannot continue to add more changes without removing some of the architecture that currently exists. This includes with technology.
