I am certain digital technologies will be part of the future. I am just not convinced we know how they will be. It will make the journey more interesting not knowing.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 23, 7:20 PM

Leading is about power and how it flows. When we are conduits and let power flow through us, it works and allows others to take responsibility. It is not so much about giving them responsibly and about creating environments where responsibility is taken.

 

I compare it to teaching and learning. I cannot learn for students. They take responsibility for their learning. It does not mean I shirk responsibility in my teaching, rather I use it differently than the expert at the front of the class, with lights down, allowing children to do worksheets projected onto a screen while he checks a Twitter feed.
