Dean J. Fusto's insight:

Everything you ever wanted to know about PLE (Personal Learning Environment) frameworks. Imagine if every school provide time for teachers and admin to develop a PLE as their own personal, individualized PD statement. I've included this in the Edu-Vision collection at my site http://teachlearnlead.weebly.com/ although I also could categorize this particular PLE presentation under the Linking Literacy category. Excellent piece!

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 28, 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.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 16, 7:07 PM

Some interesting numbers in this info-graphic. 

Actions Speak's curator insight, August 17, 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!

Does Encouraging Creativity in the Workplace Improve Innovation?

Does Encouraging Creativity in the Workplace Improve Innovation? | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
A new paper by Ozge Cokpekin (PhD candidate) and Professor Mette Knudsen of the University of Southern Denmark produces research which tests and challenges these assumptions.   The authors carried out a survey of 147 small firms in Denmark.  They compared the effectiveness of these companies in product and process innovation against seven well-known factors for encouraging creativity in the workplace.  The seven elements were based on the work of Teresa Amabile and her 1988 book, A model of Creativity and Innovation in Organisations.  The seven factors are: Organizational motivation is based on four items: the level of the firm’s forward facing strategy towards the future, the extent that the firm follows opportunities rather than maintaining the status quo, the extent that the firm encourages its employees toward creative attitude, and the level of flexibility in the management systems to accommodate the desired behaviour.

What to Do When Your Workplace is Toxic | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

In my last post, I discussed how to handle a toxic employee. What happens if it’s more than just a single employee who is toxic? What do you do if you find yourself in a toxic workplace? Working in a toxic environment can affect physical health, mental health, personal relationships and more. For these reasons, it is important to take steps to take care of yourself.

What Are the Signs of a Toxic Workplace?

Symptoms of a toxic work environment may include major communication problems, bad leadership, low morale and a high rate of blaming others and employees lashing out at each other.

Fascinating and intriguing article by Christina Pratas on the developing trends in education.  Some of the trends to watch include:

Changing Demographics; For profit schools losing influence; Increased need for bandwidth to accommodate student digital devices; open education resources as opposed to expensive text books; test administration online rather than through written exams; and a push for more STEM courses (science, technology, engineering, and math) in grades K-12.  Radical changes are coming to the face of American education.  Aloha, Russ.

Create a Culture Where Difficult Conversations Aren’t So Hard

Create a Culture Where Difficult Conversations Aren’t So Hard | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Three tips for leaders. I worked as a consultant for many years before becoming the CEO of Red Hat. One of the most surprising aspects of that work was that people would open up to me, an outsider, about all the elephants in the room — but they were too polite or embarrassed to call out the obvious issues or blame their peers inside their own organizations. My fellow consultants and I would sometimes joke that just about every individual inside a company could immediately tell you what was going wrong and what needed fixing. But whenever everybody convened for a meeting to point out those very issues, you wouldn’t hear a peep about anything that could be perceived as negative. To our amazement, they were more open to hearing feedback from us, the outsiders, than from their own colleagues.

The ability for being present is not something mystic. Most everyone recognizes it and has experienced it in themselves and others at some time or another.
