Via Miloš Bajčetić, Ruedi Grob
buket's insight:

As an open-source learning platform, Moodle is a powerful learning tool for everyone. There is no pressure to listen to the instructors well, or there is no time restriction which often causes mistakes and stress.

A recent blog by Grant Wiggins affirmed what I have long believed about creativity: it is a 21st-century skill we can teach and assess. Creativity fosters deeper learning, builds confidence and creates a student ready for college and career.

Developing leaders: It's your job

It’s not part of your job description. Nobody has told you that you need to spend time and effort developing others in your organization. You have too many

Via Anne Leong
buket's insight:

"Your leadership and your organization can reach great heights when you put the effort and time into developing leaders."

Leadership development requires consistent and persistent engagement from all its board members. If all the members are responsible for making leadership development an everyday busiess, 

you can implement a systematic improvement in the process of 

developing leaders in your workplace.

6 Things You Should Expect From Ed Leaders in 2014

6 Things You Should Expect From Ed Leaders in 2014 | Digital story telling in  EFL classes. | Scoop.it

I read an article in Forbes today that discussed what we should expect from business leaders in 2014. This made me think about what we should expect from educational leaders in 2014. Many of the overarching ideas align with the Forbes article, and yet the reasoning behind their application to ed leaders differs a bit.

 


Via Patti Kinney
buket's insight:

While it is important to emphasize communication skills and collaboration, it can be difficult to  separate them from the other Cs— Critical thinking and creativity. If we want to prepare our students for the 21st century, we need to integrate them into our classrooms fully.  (National Education Association)

One of the biggest advantages of using puzzles / crosswords in ESL classroom is they help students  expand their thoughts  and they also develop  how to ask a question. They work in teams/groups and  develop their own problem-solving skills.

A Self-Directed Learning Model For 21st Century Learners

A Self-Directed Learning Model For 21st Century Learners | Digital story telling in  EFL classes. | Scoop.it

“ A Self-Directed Learning Model For 21st Century Learners”


Via Maria Lopez Alvarado, MBA, Dave Bircher, Ivon Prefontaine
buket's insight:

When students feel that they have the ownership of their learning, and they are learning with their peers, with collaboration, their learning promotes and so does their personal growth. SDL follows a series of steps in which students decide what, where, when, and how to learn. (Baumgartner,2003)

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 3, 2014 9:59 AM

Self-directed learning should have been part of the learning model for students prior to the 21st Century.

Can-do optimists bring more to leadership then you think. Hire & promote them for a culture of service & innovation! From The People Skills Coach™. (From @KateNasser: Leadership: Choose the Positive Pollyanna!

Via John Michel
buket's insight:

I think OPTIMISM is an important part of achievement. Optimistic people see more opportunities than those who are pessimistic and optimistic people can focus on the possibilities of achieving their career goals. The right kind of  Optimism equips employees with a perspective that fosters personal accountability, innovative thinking and appropriate risk-taking. (Dana Lightman, 2004)

John Michel's curator insight, January 2, 2014 10:44 AM

Hire and promote true Pollyannas. They are grateful and hardy not apathetic and disillusioned. They improvise and overcome to reach success. They are the resilient workforce you dream of. They live in service to others and to the positive result.

The effect of love in our lives then, is what keeps us moving forward. It’s what helps us grow from both the joyful and the painful circumstances encountered in this journey called life. It’s what allows us to muster the personal power to not give up, even when circumstances would compel us to do otherwise.
