The 3 E’s of Re-tellable Leadership Stories | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

There are three kinds of people, said the sign on the wall of my dad’s coaching office:

Those that make things happen, those that watch things happen, and those that don’t know what the heck happened.

As assistant principals, we have to address groups of students, faculty, parents, colleagues. We have to deal with problems of individual students, staff members, and even parents. Many of us are asked to address banquets and awards assemblies. This article and the links to details it provides helps even those who think they don't HAVE stories or don't know how to develop them.

Karen Dietz's comment, December 2, 2013 2:03 PM
Excellent points Nancy!
Peter (PJ) Fulcher-Meredith's curator insight, December 3, 2013 1:06 AM

As Karen said a different way of capturing and curating your business stories.  Anything that helps leaders to categorise and re-use and re-purpose stories the better. Make it easier and leaders will use stories more and more to engage their people. Nice one.

Great Prezi on making great Prezis 

Dave Wood's curator insight, April 18, 3:41 PM

Some really useful tips about structuring information and the impactful use of visuals.  I haven't been a huge fan of Prezi because they can be just too "busy" and disorientating when they incorporate too much spin as they move from image to image. These tips give good advice about how to keep it simple for best effect.

I've used Prezi as a way of presenting the notes from a visual group coaching session back to the participants.

5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog

5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog | Ed Tech | Scoop.it
SlideShare is a great platform for visual content and an amazing company: in just a few years, it has become the YouTube of presentations, one of the Top 150 sites in the world with an impressive 3 Billion views per month from 60 million unique visitors. Perhaps like many others, I originally thought of SlideShare as a platform to use only on specific occasions: when I had talked at a conference, when we had produced great slides worth sharing or when we had something specifically visual to communicate. I had had great experience and results but I don’t talk to conferences every day and so I sometimes felt I was missing out. And then, one night of September last year, I heard Jason Miller present at one of our #leancontent events and it became all clear: the team and I realized we could use SlideShare in a very different way - not just as a tool to recycle and share what you already created for other purposes but as a media channel that we would update on a regular basis. In a word, as a visual blog.

We decided to try it: over the next few months, we tried to publish at least every other week to SlideShare, integrating it in our content calendar alongside our blog and our Scoop.it content curations.

These are the first results after 4 months running this experiment. Continue reading →

Transformational 1:1 learning and SAMR | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Let us talk about the word transformational. It has cemented its place as one of the first words in any half-decent game of educational technology bingo in recent years, thanks largely to its position at the pinnacle of Dr. Ruben R. Puentedura’s much loved SAMR model (see below). It is perhaps inevitable then, that it is used misused with such alarming regularity."

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."
