Ginger Jewell's insight:
Howard Gardner is familiar to us for his work on  multiple intelligences.  This article switches gears.  Our current system  still prepares students for the previous generation's past, rather than their own futures. .Traditional classrooms look and feel much as they did 100 or more years ago and the subject matter remains somewhat stagnant and much of this can be traced to over regulation and choosing metrics that may or may not reflect that learning that matters has taken place.  I would love for folks who are doing things differently that are replicable to shout it from the rooftops.so we can change the dynamics of the classroom.

Your Margin of Power

Your Margin of Power | Education | Scoop.it
As a leader, you already know you should manage your time better and deploy your resources more strategically. But to really address the problem, you need to look at the underlying dynamic that constrains leadership capacity: your margin of power.

The concept of a margin of power, designed to help professionals discover the limits of their work capacity, was developed by the educational psychologist Howard McClusky. Though he remains relatively unknown in business circles, McClusky was an influential and pioneering theorist in adult education. As a professor at the University of Michigan in the 1930s (he remained there until his death in 1982), he wondered why some adults could successfully start and complete new projects, goals, or initiatives time after time while others became quickly overwhelmed and unable to continue. His research eventually led to a simple formula that expresses a relationship between the “load” a person carries (the demands placed on them by their family, work, civic duties, and their own ambitions) and their available “power” to carry it (their own energy, skill, competence, and integrity, along with the support they get from their communities and employers).
