Smart Strategies That Help Students Learn How to Learn

Smart Strategies That Help Students Learn How to Learn | Developing Leaders, Developing Schools | Scoop.it
What’s the key to effective learning? One intriguing body of research suggests a rather riddle-like answer: It’s not just what you know. It’s what you know about what you know.

Via Allan Shaw
Lynne Stone's insight:

This underlines the importance of good teaching to build student capacity to learn and use what they have learned.

How to transform schools into Learning Organisations?

How to transform schools into Learning Organisations? | Developing Leaders, Developing Schools | Scoop.it
Schools nowadays are required to learn faster than ever before in order to deal effectively with the growing pressures of a rapidly changing environment. Many schools however, look much the same today as they did a generation ago, and too many teachers are not developing the pedagogies and practices required to meet the diverse needs of 21st-century learners.

In response, a growing body of scholars, educators and policy makers around the world is making the case that schools should be re-conceptualised as “learning organisations” that can react more quickly to changing external environments, embrace innovations in internal organisation, and ultimately improve student outcomes. Despite strong support for and the intuitive appeal of the school as a learning organisation, relatively little progress has been made in advancing the concept, either in research or practice. This lack of progress partly stems from a lack of clarity or common understanding of the school as learning organisation.

A moot question for leadership is 'What turns a Manager into a Leader?' People are appointed for Managerial positions, but what marks exceptional Managers apart from the rest is their ability to lead others. It is not just the post but their character traits that matter!
