Learning or education and the industries employing need to work together to close the gap. The cycle for updating learning cannot continue to be so great or we need to change strategies and accept the irrelevance of some of the content we deliver.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 23, 2014 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.

Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant

Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant | Educational Administration & Leadership | Scoop.it

When a school leader refuses to remove internal policy and filtering barriers that get in the way of students and teachers actually using purchased technologies, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

Since it is a less radical departure from what students and parents expect, there’s less stress and uncertainty. If you fear that students may not have access to video lectures or get distracted from learning while on their own time, then teacher resources and equipment available in most schools solve this logistics problem. Wealth and home situation do not become a barrier to learning.
