Isn't it time to offer adolescents a pathway to success in school that's proven to inspire and motivate kids to keep on learning? Isn't it time to try more innovative ways to address the challenges of our nation's dropout rate? We can keep kids in school and prepare them for life after graduation by delivering authentic learning experiences that matter to them. The first step is taking down the barriers between school and the outside world. The first step is letting them leave, to learn. www.leavingtolearn.org

Mickey Gast's curator insight, February 11, 2014 7:48 PM

What personalized learning is and how it can be optimized. Now that learning is available to "the masses", what is preventing "the masses" from taking advantage of learning opportunities?

Don Breedwell's curator insight, March 26, 2014 8:47 PM

I like to see good change and this looks like the right direction. Going to make the changes in vocabulary now.

Introducing a set of four videos that demonstrate student-centered assessments.

 

"What does student-centered assessment look like in the classroom? How do students benefit from this type of assessment? Why do teachers implement these practices in their classrooms? The Students at the Center project, in conjunction with Dr. Heidi Andrade, Ed.D. and the students and teachers from IS 223 (Brooklyn, NY), produced this suite of videos to begin to answer these questions for those wishing to implement more student-centered approaches in the classroom, school, district, or beyond."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, December 31, 2013 3:59 PM

Justin shares 5 ways to create learner-centered classrooms. What a great way to start the new year by putting the learner at the center!

 

1. A student-centered classroom allows students to be an integral part of the assessment development process.

 

2. A student-centered classroom focuses on finding solutions to real-world problems.

 

3. A student-centered classroom is not about what the teacher is doing or what the teacher has done; it's about what the students are doing and what the students can do in the future.

 

4. A student-centered classroom embraces the notion that there are multiple ways to accomplish an individual task.

 

5. A student-centered classroom firmly believes that there is a partnership and a strong level of trust between educators and students.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, September 5, 2013 4:12 PM

Moving to a Personalized Learning Environment (PLE) is a culture shift. Moving an entire district or a region to a system with sustainable PLEs takes time and a process. PLEs are built on a human infrastructure with groups of people where some may be definitely ready and others resistant. Those that are ready may still hesitate to jump in unless they have the support and resources they need when they need it.

Online social learning communities are still young. They’re not completely proven. But if leaders ignore or wait to see what happens they’ll have missed the wave. Be present, be a leader, protect your social and workplace culture. And empower your employees to learn, participate and grow. Sponsor a community. Learn again, yourself, what it means to learn, and bring the whole organization with you. It will be quite a ride. Join in on the fun!

Empathic distress can also take the form of physical symptoms and a desire to flee. In one case, a man, Francis, couldn’t get through the first day of a weekend men’s retreat before he regretted being there. Another participant had shared a story about his abusive girlfriend, and it had upset Francis so much that he started experiencing stomach cramps.

Healthy Compassion


The difference between empathic distress and healthy compassion is our ability to keep our own nervous system steady. The Dalai Lama is reputed to exemplify healthy compassion. When he was told of a horrific death, onlookers reported seeing shock, then sadness flash quickly across his face, after which he seemed to move seamlessly into a place of equanimity. People with healthy compassion can respond to a crisis with the full range of appropriate human emotions without shutting down or becoming emotionally triggered.

High-Performance Culture

High-Performance Culture | Education and Compassion | Scoop.it

Culture is hot. In our discussions and work with leaders in business, government, and not-for-profit organizations, we have observed a markedly increasing emphasis on culture—for a host of reasons.

 

Leaders trying to reshape their organization’s culture are asking: How can we break down silos and become more collaborative or innovative? Others, struggling to execute strategy, are wondering: How do we reconnect with our customers or adapt more proactively to the new regulatory environment?

 

Leaders overseeing a major transformation want to know how to spark the behaviors that will deliver results during the transformation—and sustain them well beyond. Those involved with a postmerger integration grapple with how to align the two cultures with the new operating model—and reap the sought-after synergies. And those simply seeking operating improvements often ask: How can we become more agile? Accelerate decision making? Embed an obsession for continuous improvement throughout the organization?

Some great insights into why some organisations are better able to implement and leverage change better than others.

Harish Maru's curator insight, March 6, 2014 8:17 PM

Culture in an organisation reflects the values of the society. For example in India society is paternalistic. In business context it will result in limiting some person or group's liberty or autonomy for their own good.

 

How an Indian business organisation leverage this value to achieve high performance? It will be futile to go against this social norm.
