Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 28, 2015 9:32 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 3:54 PM

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!

The Challenge of Working in Teams—Dealing with Conflict

The Challenge of Working in Teams—Dealing with Conflict | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Differences are inevitable when passionate people work together. Eventually, after a team gets through an initial orientation with a new task, members usually come to the realization that working together to accomplish a common goal is tough work.

This occurs in the “dissatisfaction” stage of team development when the team recognizes the discrepancy between what is expected of them and the reality of getting it done.   

It is not a pleasant stage.

As a leader it’s important to differentiate between the different types of conflict teams experience and to have a plan for helping the team move forward.  Here are four examples of team conflict and some advice on how a leader can intervene properly from Dr. Eunice Parisi-Carew of The Ken Blanchard Companies.

Are High Expectations Alone Enough?

Our analyses suggest that the higher expectations embodied in the MMC has had little impact on student outcomes. Looking at student performance on the ACT, the only clear evidence of a change in academic performance comes in science. Our best estimates indicate that ACT science scores improved by 0.2 points (or roughly 0.04 standard deviations) as a result of the MMC. Students who entered high school with the weakest academic preparation saw the largest improvement, gaining 0.35 points (0.15 standard deviations) on the ACT composite score and 0.73 points (0.22 standard deviations) on the ACT science score

Career education making a comeback in US high schools

Career education making a comeback in US high schools | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Decades after "shop class" became known as a lesser alternative for children deemed unfit for college, vocational education is making a comeback in many of the nation's high schools. States such as California, Colorado and Louisiana are looking to rebranded "career pathways" that combine technical training with academics built around an industry theme as a way to get more young people to pursue some post-secondary education — whether it's a certificate from a two-year school or a four-year degree.
Supporters of the renaissance hope it will keep students engaged and prepare them for the stable, middle-income jobs employers say they can't fill.
"Career and technical education is really the perfect blend of the academic, the technical and the employability skills. Students come out college- and career-ready because they have the skills in all these essential areas," Association for Career and Technical Education Executive Director LeeAnn Wilson said.

Creativity and Instructional Design

Creativity and Instructional Design | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Creativity is often thought of as a mysterious phenomenon, arising out of those ‘struck by lightning’ moments. Although it is an important aspect of the instructional design process, it seems to be missing from the standard systems-based instructional design models. In addition, creative thinking is rarely discussed in industry conversations.

With all the complaints about unimaginative instruction, the time is ripe to investigate, examine and analyze creative thinking. In fact, the more we decompose and try to understand creativity, the greater are the chances for nurturing it. For example, one study found that the explicit instructions to “be creative” facilitated this type of thinking in several domains, such as, artistic and mathematical, across cultural and ethnic groups (Chen et al. 2005).

Want to be a better leader? Observe more and react less | McKinsey & Company

Want to be a better leader? Observe more and react less | McKinsey & Company | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Most time-strapped executives know they should plan ahead and prioritize, focus on the important as much as the urgent, invest in their health (including getting enough sleep), make time for family and relationships, and limit (even if they don’t entirely avoid) mindless escapism. But doing this is easier said than done, as we all know—and as I, too, have learned during years of trying unsuccessfully to boost my effectiveness.

In my case, I stumbled upon an ancient meditation technique that, to my surprise, improved my mind’s ability to better resist the typical temptations that get in the way of developing productive and healthy habits. Much in the same way that intense, focused physical activity serves to energize and revitalize the body during the rest of the day, meditation is for me—and for the many other people who use it—like a mental aerobic exercise that declutters and detoxifies the mind to enhance its metabolic activity.

Manish has writtern a wonderful article that suggests how one can be a better leader. While the adage, observe more react less is true, the means of doing this would require not reacting immediately, or even postponing decision making for another day. Meditating, relaxing by taking a break, and I guess 'sleepiong over the problem could be a great help.  It has been noticed that knee-jerk reactions to e-mails and other correspondences might cause more harm than good!
