"Helping people focus on the meaning and impact of their work, rather than on, say, the financial returns it will bring, may be the best way to improve not only the quality of their work but also — counterintuitive though it may seem — their financial success. "

AboutJess-Three-HeadshotsHi, I’m Jessica Balsley, founder of The Art of Education.A few years ago, I was working towards my masters degree, and discovered it was nearly impossible to find relevant professional development opportunities out there for art teachers. Through this personal experience, the idea for The Art of Education was born.After that, my husband Derek and I set out on a mission to provide Ridiculously Relevant™ Professional Development to Art Educators around the world. What started as a blog, quickly morphed into a catalog of 15+ online classes for Art Teachers, and an online magazine with daily articles, tips, tricks, videos, and the first ever online conference just for art teachers.

Those that cannot get to a state or national conference this year might want to try this online conference. It is always good to see how others have approached things,though many of you may be using or doing some of these same things in your own ways. This looks like a good conference that I may check out and get back to you about. The listed online courses are fairly high to me if they are not connected to direct course credit for an advanced degree, unless you are sure you need special info on a subject you have weakness about. There were no samples of instruction that I could find and the details seemed vague and generalized. Great Courses offer more in depth art history and museum back grounds for far less if you watch their sales. The conference looks like it might be a good buy. I and many others offer great links to many with great ideas to share for free these days as well. You may want to connect with teacher links to offer your ideas and plans for sale at some of the teacher share plan sites that offer that service. Juno is one I know of where you can set a price or offer free ideas, test and so forth to other teachers. Please feel free to add in the comments any teacher sites that allow you to sale or free offer your plans or that you have tried and liked. If anyone has participated in this conference let us know what you think as well.

Courage Is The Key To Fearless Leadership - Lolly Daskal | Leadership and Personal Development

Courage Is The Key To Fearless Leadership - Lolly Daskal | Leadership and Personal Development | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it


Wu Feng was a Manchurian diplomat in the 1700s who was posted with an aboriginal tribe in the outskirts of Taiwan.

He befriended the aboriginal chief, whose tribe beheaded one of its members every year as a form of sacrifice. Each year Wu Feng pleaded, with all his compassion and reverence for life, for the chief to put to an end to this custom. The chief would listen respectfully, then summon the chosen tribe member and without hesitation behead him.

Finally, after living with the tribe for 25 years, Wu Feng once more pleaded with the chief to stop the killing. But this time, when the tribe member was called forth, Wu Feng took his place and said, “If you will kill this time, it will be me.”.

The chief stared long into his old friend’s eyes. He could not kill him. And from that day, the practice of beheading stopped.

Courage is necessary in leading. Leading is about navigating, mapping, and continuously opening up new spaces. Teaching, when done well, is a hermeneutic experiencing in classroom settings where human beings are continuously forming.

MIT professor Thomas Malone riffs on the future of the workplace. It’s an interesting take. Here are a few highlights: 

 

We’ll see an increase in human freedom in organizations, changing the way businesses are run. This is fueled, impart, by new technologies.
 With new technologies driving down the cost of communications, decision making will become more decentralized due to the ease and access to large amounts of information
 Newer organizational structures will emerge

Connecting Your Own Dots for Leadership

Connecting Your Own Dots for Leadership | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

As I looked into moving into “leadership positions” within my own district, I believed that I did not have the experience to get into a role that I had wanted.  The tricky thing is that if you don’t have the experience, how do you get the job?

“Leadership” is not about title, but often influence and the ability to help others.  There are many administrators who aren’t necessarily leaders, and there are many teachers who exemplify the definition.  Yet for many, the idea of moving into “leadership” without the experience, seems insurmountable.  The reality is, the experience is already there within your current role, you sometimes have to just connect the dots for others, and more importantly, yourself.

How are the requirements for teacher evaluations affecting principals?

How are the requirements for teacher evaluations affecting principals? | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

How are the requirements for teacher evaluations affecting principals?

Here are some numbers put together by the Center for American Progress, a Washington-based think tank: 

  • 248: The number of hours the median principal in Michigan reported spending on activities related to teacher evaluations. Another way of putting it? The equivalent of 31 full working days.
  • 25: The number of teachers the average principal in Connecticut was responsible for evaluating in a given year, according to a principal survey.
  • 6:  The number of hours Chicago principals reported that it took to complete one evaluation.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, July 7, 2:25 PM

The full Center for American Progress report can be found here. Its recommendations call on educators and policymakers to:

  • Redesign school organizational charts and job descriptions;
  • Develop instructional leadership capacity around the principal position;
  • Focus principal training on coaching teachers;
  • Provide technological supports that allow principals to record and share information; and
  • Build the capacity of  central office administrators to support principals.
Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, July 8, 8:11 PM

These studies highlight the amount of work it takes to be an effective principal-- and with new mandates all the time, it doesn't get easier.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 7, 10:11 AM

It is interesting that we use the words quite interchangeably without thinking about context. Several months ago in preparing a presentation I discovered collaboration always has a negative meaning about selling out. The way we approach collaboration is that someone decides what the goals are and everyone else accepts it.

It’s critical to note that people who’ve made a real difference aren’t all privileged, advantaged or “special” by any stretch.  Many come from disadvantaged families, crushing circumstances and initially limited capabilities, but have found ways to pick themselves up and rise above their circumstances (and their genes) to transform their own lives and those around them.
