AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, July 22, 11:57 PM

I don't usually do this but I reacted quite strongly to the premise made in this video about three "new" ways of thinking that will shape leaders into the next century. 


At best, the speaker has verified some classic themes that are covered in most if not all of the traditional leadership development programs that exist today.  


Below are the 3 main "breakthroughs" that I heard from the speaker and my thoughts on how I have learned and practiced these "new" leadership themes. 


1. Leaders see beyond the current situation and prepare for upcoming  change...  This is what scenario planning is ALL about.  


* Scenario Planning accounts for many factors that may combine in complex ways to create surprising futures.  This has been written about and practiced for DECADES.  


2. A diverse network...  Hummm...  I think this is what most HR departments are trying to instill in their organizations.  


Now, if the speaker had gotten into the immense difficulty of going from diverse to inclusive, I would have given her this one.  But, no, just more talk about how we need to work and understand people who think differently than we think.  Not new...


3. Courage to make a change and persistence to stay the course while others are telling you it is not going to work.  Hummmm...  Really?  This is NOT covered in the current leadership development programs?  


I usually scoop content that I feel is helpful, not this time.  If you are new to leadership development, maybe this is worthwhile.  If you are educated in leadership, take the 10 minutes and practice how to provide honoring feedback.

Are Existing Tech Tools Effective for Teachers and Students?

Are Existing Tech Tools Effective for Teachers and Students? | Cuppa | Scoop.it
The Gates Foundation released a report today surveying teachers and students on the kinds of digital tools they'd like to see available in classrooms.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 24, 9:19 PM

This report focused on four questions:

What do teachers want and need from digital instructional tools?

How can product developers use this information to more effectively serve students, teachers, and schools?

What do we know about how teachers and districts select and purchase digital instructional tools?

What do we know about the overall market for digital instructional tools?

The report identified six instructional purposes for technology, moving from teacher-driven to student-driven and identify both a primary and a secondary benefit. The areas are:

● Deliver Instruction

● Diagnose Student Learning

● Vary Delivery Method

● Tailer Learning Experience

● Support Student Collaboration and Interactivity

● Foster Independent Practice

One piece that pops out quickly is that 54% of teachers surveyed did not find the digital tools they use effective.

Click here for the full report [PDF]

KCenter SKEMA's curator insight, April 25, 4:53 AM

"The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation just released a report detailing the results of 3,100 teacher surveys and 1,250 student surveys on the kinds of digital instruction tools that are useful and effective. The foundation has asked teachers and students what they need when it comes to digital instruction, aiming to close the communication gap between commercial developers and schools.

One of the biggest takeaways is that most teachers — 54 percent — don’t find many of the digital tools they use effective. That’s partly because teachers often aren’t making purchasing decisions. When they do have a say in tool selection they often report on its effectiveness more favorably. When asked about free products, teachers reported that free products are just as likely to be effective as the products the district purchased for them."
