Responsibility vs Accountability

Responsibility vs Accountability | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
If learners take responsibility for their learning, they will be more motivated to learn. If teachers are accountable for their learning, then there is no reason to be motivated other than for a grade.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 15, 2013 12:10 PM

Responsibility means a moral obligation and something taken upon one's self.

Accountability is more of a social contract or social obligation. Accountability can be measurable. If teachers are accountable for their learners' learning, then why would learners feel responsible for their own learning?


When learners feel a sense of ownership, they want to engage in academic tasks and persist in learning. If teachers and learners are learners first, then responsibility comes with being a learner. Learners of all ages become responsible for their learning when they own and drive their learning.

So what is it? Teachers and learners need to be accountable for their own learning by taking responsibility for their learning. What do you see as the difference between accountability and responsibility?

Connie Wise's curator insight, July 30, 2013 5:07 PM

My goal is always to encourage students to take ownership of their learning.  What you learn is yours-- it can't be taken away!

The neuroscience of asking insightful questions

The neuroscience of asking insightful questions | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
I teach coaching skills to leaders. When I get to the section on how to ask questions (an important part of learning to coach) I might ask a trick question to start off: “How many of you are good at solving problems?”. Without fail, almost all hands shoot enthusiastically into the air. There’s nothing wrong …

Chris Carter's curator insight, March 23, 8:12 PM
We are not guiding if we are solving for the kids. We need to guide kids to their own solutions to the challenges that they face. Asking questions rather than giving answers tests our patience and our desire to "help," but we do not help if we simply give answers.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 28, 4:22 PM
Introverts are often reflecting and gathering their thoughts in the heat of the conversation. Stopping and giving people time to write their thoughts down can be helpful.
Elizabeth Lim's comment, March 4, 1:52 AM
Finally. An article that actually acknowledges the difference between shyness and introversion. There is finally some warmth in the world. But seriously, I agree that introverts are highly misunderstood by many educators who pressurise more reserved and thoughtful students to speak up and behave more like extroverts, which honestly is EXTREMELY annoying and also makes us introverts feel ostracised and unaccepted for who we are. I think it will be good for people to understand that being outspoken or able to communicate well verbally is not the be-all end-all quality for students to achieve, and instead of getting students to follow a rigid model of what a "good" student should be, I think it is more beneficial to students to allow us to do things and express ourselves in ways we are comfortable with so as to bring out the best of our abilities.

Getting Started with Snapchat in your Classroom - MindShift

Getting Started with Snapchat in your Classroom - MindShift | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
As teachers, we’ve all seen it in our classrooms: A student in the back of the room discreetly takes a selfie. We’ve probably all been frustrated by it at some point too. And many of us have probably wondered why our students are taking hundreds of pictures of themselves everyday.

Our students are using Snapchat, and what many educators fail to understand about the app is that students are not just taking a picture. They are having a conversation. They are telling a story.

Rather than being reactive about new technology in our classrooms, we should look for ways to be proactive and utilize Snapchat as a learning tool instead of viewing it as a distraction.
