The Learning Gap Infographic

The Learning Gap Infographic | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

The Learning Gap Infographic presents the difference between learning hours spent of middle class kids and kids born into poverty. Middle class kids have likely spent 6,000 more hours learning than kids born into poverty. Parents – 220 hours Pre-school – 1,395 hours After-school and... http://elearninginfographics.com/the-learning-gap-infographic/

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 28, 2015 4:32 PM

Our students of poverty enter school behind and by the time they are in middle school, the achievement gap has widened.  Often the answer is to remove the struggling students from electives and place them in remediation courses for math or reading, robbing them of the rich contribution arts makes to the lives of middle and upper class children. Innovation must guide our efforts to close the gap, providing not just remediation but enrichment to our children of poverty.

Actions Speak's curator insight, August 17, 2015 10:54 AM

In a weak culture, unacceptable performance is rewarded.  The standard for what is acceptable gets lowered.

 

Our public education system is not best in class.  Education bureaucrats are getting rewarded for unacceptable performance.  Too many kids are not getting an education that prepares them to effectively compete .

 

What kind of questions would you ask if you were a top education leader in your state, county, or city?

 

How about some of these?

 

1) when are going to stop passing kids that can't do the work at the current level?

2) how are we going to close learning gaps with a sense of time is of the essence?

3) what needs to change in our approaches to teaching to drastically improve learning results?

4) if what we are supposed to achieve is kids learning at a high level then what about all the resources allocated to transportation, duplicate administrators, government edicts, athletics, ...?

5) what do other cultures with high performance education systems do differently?

6) do you ask the teachers what they need to close gaps and energize the kids to learn at a much higher level?

7) do you have the courage to think out of the box and go against the politically correct that rewards blind compliance to government ideology?

 

"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn" -- Ignacio Estrada 

 

Isn't it time to rethink our approach?

 

Yes.  It is way past time!

How We Built Our School Makerspace - FRACTUS LEARNING

How We Built Our School Makerspace - FRACTUS LEARNING | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

"Why build a Makerspace in your school? Student creativity, building stronger neural pathways in the brain through kinesthetic learning opportunities, is the reason to build a Makerspace. It is about play, students tinkering to discover, children experimenting to learn, and students building what they dream.

"Building a Makerspace is worth it when the students grow and learn within it."

In an age of accountability and standardization, these elements have been steadily removed from schools and classrooms. A Makerspace has the potential to put it all back in place. Even so, making a Makerspace come to life in a school is not an easy task. It takes vision, buy-in, materials and space, and a plan for implementation. More than that, building a Makerspace in a school takes time. And, we did it!"

Leaders must live up to the definition of the term “leader.”


(From the article): Your character matters most when nobody’s looking. I long for the day when honor has meaning. In this world, most people do the right thing because they know that what goes around comes around. And if it doesn’t, they know they’ll get paid back in karma points.


In the new world I envision, people follow the spirit as well as the letter of the law. This is a world in which shaking someone’s hand is as good as a contract and where one’s reputation is a valued asset. This is a world in which people go to great lengths to protect their family name, and leaders see their first responsibility as strengthening the trust and credibility of their institutions. In this world, people do the right thing not only because it’s considered acceptable behavior, but because they know every action affects another action. In this world, people won’t be policed by bureaucracies because everyone will see it as their duty to call out unacceptable behavior — ethical derelicts will be disgraced and shunned for their misdeeds. In this world, people are accountable to a higher power — themselves — letting their own conscience be their guide.

For teachers in Singapore to advance in their career, they must make sure their students learn. They also have to help their fellow teachers get better.

This model of collaborative professional development is one way other countries are doing a better job than the United States at improving the skills of educators. While the US spends billions of dollars a year for occasional workshops on the latest technology or curriculum trends, there's almost no evidence to suggest that the model works.

A nice summary of the efforts that leaders can use to improve their communication with their team.

 

(From the article): Integrity builds trust


Make sure your deeds match your words. If you say you are open to listening, you need to make sure you don’t punish the other person for speaking, suggesting or criticising. If you say you are open to their contributions and ideas, you need to follow through and not end up systematically rejecting them all. If you say you are making the other person responsible for the next step, recognise that stepping in or taking back control will undermine both them and you. If you say you will follow up with an action, failing to do so makes you look untrustworthy.

 

No amount of great dialogue can overcome the damage done by lack of integrity – indeed, failure to follow through or match deeds to your words makes it orders of magnitude harder to communicate effectively later. Where trust is low, aim for smaller, quicker wins to show that you will follow through.

Are You a Leader, or Just Pretending to Be One?

Are You a Leader, or Just Pretending to Be One? | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
When leaders empower people through a higher purpose, they don’t have to “create buy-in” or use other marketing tactics to win over their followers. Leaders who do find themselves acting something like a pusher — resorting to perks, tit-for-tats, and bonuses — might want to ask themselves if they’re missing some larger point. A leader isn’t a salesman. When Steve Jobs asked John Sculley his famous question, “Do you really want to spend your life selling sugared water, or do you want a chance to change the world?” he was making just such a distinction. Selling sugared water might make you a few bucks — but only at the cost of doing something that matters. The purpose of a leader is to create a purpose.
