Not every teacher may be ready to jump into this type of personalization. To make it work, they'll be required to adopt a different teaching role. They'll need strong management skills and a commitment to disruptive innovation. In addition, the current constructs of the education system may hold us back. What if we could make this dream of personalized PBL a reality?


===> I say that we work toward it, creating a push on the system that demands change in the education of our students. <===

PBL is one way to approach the way to organize the learning for students within the classroom. The use of different tools allows for the development of student-driven designs for learning and provides teachers with the opportunity to allow students more direction in their own learning.

What Happens When You Put Aside Your Ego And Take Your Mentors' Advice

What Happens When You Put Aside Your Ego And Take Your Mentors' Advice | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

You are a twentysomething entrepreneur ready to launch a new business and your emotions are running wild. You're frightened, intimated, and stressed, but at the same time you're enthusiastic and confident about what the future holds.

 

At this point, it's time to step back and listen to those who have been in the same situation.

 

It would be a foolish mistake and a missed opportunity not to value the advice, experience, and knowledge a mentor can offer. Put your ego aside; be a sponge and soak up as much wisdom as possible.

I was in this exact position prior to launching SDC Nutrition Inc. I was confident and probably a little too self-assured, but I knew I had to set aside my ego to listen and absorb as much invaluable advice as possible from my advisers.

Why Pope Francis Is So Effective: 8 Lessons for Every Leader

Why Pope Francis Is So Effective: 8 Lessons for Every Leader | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

Pope Francis has approval ratings any leader could envy: 88 percent of American Catholics think he's doing a good job, and nearly three quarters of Americans in general view him with favor. What is he doing right?

 

To answer that question, business author Jeffrey A. Krames examined His Holiness's approach from a leadership perspective, and the result is Lead with Humility: 12 Leadership Lessons from Pope Francis. Though a non-Catholic, Krames was inspired to write about the pontiff because he is the child of Holocaust survivors, he explains. "When I saw Pope Francis, I thought he was the anti-Hitler."


Here are some practices that make Pope Francis so effective--and that any business leader could use:

The Importance Of Perspective-Taking In Leadership

The Importance Of Perspective-Taking In Leadership | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

Whether you’re selling a product, pitching an idea, or trying to get employees to do something different or do something in a different way, perspective-taking has become an essential element in moving others.

 

Over the last decade, social scientists like Adam Galinsky of Columbia University have deepened our understanding of perspective-taking. Their work yields three ways leaders can become more effective.

 

1. CHECK YOUR POWER. Galinsky and others have found that when people feel powerful, their perspective-taking abilities degrade. The more powerful we feel, the more we anchor in our own perspective rather than adjusting to another’s. And that can make others less likely to go along. But briefly reducing one’s feelings of power (“Maybe this employee I’m asking to do something needs our company much less than our company needs her.”) can increase the acuity of our perspective-taking, which in turn can make us more effective.

 

2. PERSPECTIVE-TAKING ISN’T TOUCHY-FEELY. Perspective-taking sounds a lot like empathy, but the two qualities are siblings, not identical twins. Empathy — the ability to understand another’s emotional state — is an essential human quality. But research has shown that, in commercial settings such as negotiations, understanding the other side’s thoughts and interests, not simply their emotions and feelings, can be more effective in forging a deal. So if you’re in a high-stakes leadership situation, definitely be emotionally intelligent. But use your head as much as your heart.


3. DON’T FORGET MIMICRY. Mimicking others’ posture, gesture, and expressions sounds like the sleazy tactics of a used car salesman. But ample research has shown that mimicry is a natural part of human behavior, an instinctive way we understand others. You can enhance your attunement skills, and thereby your leadership, simply by being conscious of how the other person is standing, moving, and talking and ever so slightly mirroring what they’re doing.

First, with the hand you use for writing, snap your fingers five times quickly. Now, with the forefinger of that hand, on your forehead draw a capital E. Believe it or not, how you drew that letter might reveal how you act as a leader.


This article by Daniel Pink provides some good insight on the importance of perspectives in leadership.  The three suggestions that will help you be more effective can be summed up in checking your power, head & heart, and mirror.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, August 7, 9:39 AM

There's no doubt that leaders who fully appreciate their organization's  and their followers perspectives will be much more effective. It is after all, what defines their job. 

David Jardin's curator insight, August 16, 9:40 AM

Perspective enhances relationships when it lets us see past WHAT someone did to help/anger/hurt/etc. to understand WHY they did it.

Three Ways Leaders Can Listen with More Empathy

Three Ways Leaders Can Listen with More Empathy | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

Study after study has shown that listening is critical to leadership effectiveness. So, why are so few leaders good at it?
 

Too often, leaders seek to take command,
direct conversations, talk too much, or worry
about what they will say next in defense
or rebuttal.  

 

The ability and willingness to listen with empathy is often what sets a leader apart.  Hearing words is not adequate; the leader truly needs to work at understanding the position and perspective of the others involved in the conversation. 

 

In a recent interview, Paul Bennett, Chief Creative Officer at IDEO, advises leaders to listen more and ask the right question.  Bennett shared that “for most of my twenties I assumed that the world was more interested in me than I was in it, so I spent most of my time talking, usually in a quite uninformed way, about whatever I thought, rushing to be clever, thinking about what I was going to say to someone rather than listening to what they were saying to me.”

donhornsby's curator insight, July 16, 3:12 PM

(From the article): Overall, it is important for leaders to recognize the multidimensionality of empathetic listening and engage in all forms of behaviors.  Among its benefits, empathic listening builds trust and respect, enables people to reveal their emotions–including tensions, facilitates openness of information sharing, and creates an environment that encourages collaborative problem-solving.

Gifted children - Social emotional challenges

Gifted children - Social emotional challenges | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

"It often seems that gifted children are more…emotional, physical, spiritual, etc. requiring more energy from parents.

 

Below are some common social/emotional struggles faced by gifted children:

 

- Gifted preschoolers have disproportional development between their motor skills and their conceptual abilities. They may want to copy something they have seen or create something they are imagining and yet their fine motor skills are not able to perform adequately to enable them meet that goal. Consequently, they become emotionally upset, and the volcano erupts.

 

- Perfectionism is an on-going problem with gifted individuals, including preschoolers that want their product to look like their picture or idea. Their unrealistic self expectations may insure that they will feel inadequate and discouraged.

 

- Their struggles may intensify when they become overly cautious, as they see all the possible dilemmas and difficulties with activities. They may avoid trying something new. Coping with a tendency to bind up when facing new challenges can become a life-long frustration in decision-making.

 

- In peer relationships, often the gifted children find that they are more comfortable with older children and not so much with those of their own chronological age.

Many gifted children experience what is called “hypersensitivity”. They may be overly sensitive to the emotions of others and may overreact to peer and family issues causing conflicts. They may also be extra sensitive to the environment including noise, light, or confusion, sometimes causing difficulty in social settings"

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it
The terms 'critical' and 'reflection' are sorely misunderstood in education. Being critical is often misinterpreted as being negative. 'Reflection' is also frequently distorted to mean "reflect on what you are doing wrong". Too often the students that we teach give negative feedback when asked to be critical. So to counter act this, educators initiate strategies such as '2 stars and a wish' and SWNI (strengths, weaknesses, new ideas).
These strategies are designed to make reflective practices a more positive experience for students. It teaches them that being critically reflective is not just a negative activity, that it is important to be positive and give feedback to help improve or make something better.

In his excellent book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, Charles Duhigg says: "When people join groups where change seems possible, the potential for that change to occur becomes more real."

The Longevity Project, which studied over 1000 people from youth to death had this to say:

The groups you associate with often determine the type of person you become. For people who want improved health, association with other healthy people is usually the strongest and most direct path of change. [The Longevity Project]

And the research on friendship confirms this. From my interview with Carlin Flora, author ofFriendfluence:

Research shows over time, you develop the eating habits, health habits, and even career aspirations of those around you. If you're in a group of people who have really high goals for themselves you'll take on that same sense of seriousness.
