Ray Boyd's insight:

Teaching is a passion and passion is something that can not be taught. If a teacher's passion can be matched equally by a deep understanding of content knowledge and an exceptional pedagogical understanding the students will always be the beneficiaries and the wider system will have a scaffoild on which future educational growth can develop

New technologies are revolutionizing education – or are they?

New technologies are revolutionizing education – or are they? | Education,Educational Leadership and Change Management | Scoop.it

New technologies hold great potential to improve education in developing Asia and the Pacific. Here are a few guiding principles to help to ensure interventions are relevant.

Ray Boyd's insight:

The technology is the tool and simply becomes another avenue with which educators can explore or engage students in the learning process. Used in effectively it may as well be used to steady the table

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 29, 9:29 AM

No, they're not. And this premise is indicative of part of the problem: "Clarify what new technologies are expected to achieve within a given program." First, the technology will achieve nothing. It's a tool. Like a pencil. The pencil will not solve the problem nor will it write the essay. It is a tool by which an individual might be able to solve a problem or write an essay. There are no guarantees. So it's not the technology, it's not the monitoring and evaluation. What will make the difference for teachers is training, training, and training. Then coaching, administrative support, and clarity of the administrative/school/district vision for how and why technology can make a difference in the classroom, in the school, in the district, and in the community. What will also make a difference is communication with parents so they understand what technology is being used in the classroom, and how and why it is being used in the classroom. This has nothing to do with being a first-world country. This has to do with investing time and effort in the preparation and support the individuals who will wield the pencil, whatever its form.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 29, 10:44 AM

The etymology of technology suggests habits of mind and communicating with and through one's tools much like a craftsperson does with their tools. Education is leading children into adulthood. Do we include teachers in the conversation about the choices and uses of tools in their classroom where children gather with real names and faces? Research says we should, but anecdotal evidence suggests that is not done.

Common Core Standards strengthen public education

The Wisconsin State Teachers of the Year Network has a classroom perspective on the current debate regarding Common Core State Standards. For us, this is neither a political issue nor a union issue. Our view is based on our students' needs.
Ray Boyd's insight:

Demanding common core standards, this is something that the Coalition of Schools in Western Australia is working hard to develop and to some extent it has. Using the National Curriculum as the backdrop we have identified content specific curriulum, then pitched it at a higher level. Matched with a rigorous instructional teaching model student achievement across three very different school contetxts has risen.

Leadership Is More Than the C-Suite

Leadership Is More Than the C-Suite | Education,Educational Leadership and Change Management | Scoop.it

Companies spend billions of dollars each year on leadership development. And there is an urgent need to ensure that the next generation of executives is prepared to lead. But the overwhelming number of leadership theories and programs are confusing. What criteria should businesses use to judge whether someone is ready to lead? And how can decision makers know if someone is likely to succeed in a leadership role?

 

Gallup has researched leadership for more than 40 years, interviewing and studying more than 50,000 leaders in many different industries, including healthcare, education, government, financial services, manufacturing, retail, hospitality, and telecommunications. This long-term study has yielded two crucial insights:

 

Leadership is best understood as a set of roles in an enterprise. These roles differ in tasks and responsibilities. But viewed together, they provide a complete picture of the leadership needs of a company and how those needs are met.The best performers in each leadership role invariably possess the talent and experience to meet the needs of the role and, by extension, the needs of the enterprise.

Companies shouldn't assume that "leadership" only applies to their chief officers. In fact, businesses must find the right people to fill four distinct types of leadership roles.
