"College and career ready is a very common theme these days. As with any catch-phrase, many educators are most likely sick of hearing it. The longer you stay in any profession the more at risk you are of hearing new phrases year after year, which may just have the same definitions as the old phrase. They're just new words.

Unfortunately, too many educators have that attitude that what is old is new again. And too many feel that way about technology. They feel it is a passing fad that has no place in schools."

Do you think your students are learning ready? Are the educators in your school putting students first? This post explores these questions. The list below is some of what we as educators may do to encourage students to be learning ready (quoted from post).

* Listen to them -- it sounds easy and it should be. However, sometimes we get so caught up in what needs to be done, that we forget those things are being done to our students

* Encourage Risk-taking -- Encourage students to offer ideas. If they want to add something to a conversation, educators should listen and then encourage them to further their research about it.

* One right answer -- Some questions have one right answer, but many others have different answers which offer different pathways to learning.

For additional ways to encourage students and a more in-depth look at these issues check out the post.

Random thoughts may gain second place when your thought process is already focused and fluent. However, they should not be ignored but rather noted down. You can always come back to them at a later time, you don’t have to force them into your projects. At a later time when you develop other projects they can be gold and gain a primary place in your outline.

I like the tip to brainstorm with different people because I think it helps wih time management and productivity. All of these tips can be helpful in any scenario especially decision making.
