Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, December 20, 2013 8:16 AM

Knowing what your strengths are, as well as those of other leaders around you, can help you sort out what roles would be best for you and other team members. As an assistant principal, learn what you do well and what tasks you need to disseminate to others. Knowing who will go a great job is a leadership quality that makes you more successful in the role. Only the foolis think they can do everything equally well.

Developing Responsible and Autonomous Learners: A Key to Motivating Students

Developing Responsible and Autonomous Learners: A Key to Motivating Students | Education: Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it
“ Research has shown that motivation is related to whether or not students have opportunities to be autonomous and to make important academic choices. Having choices allows children to feel that they have control or ownership over their own learning. This, in turn, helps them develop a sense of responsibility and self-motivation.”

Lisa Gorman's curator insight, March 26, 2015 7:02 PM

I have a great admiration for the thinking of Sir Ken Robinson... He speaks so eloquently and argues for creative learning...and so much more...

 

A stand out quote for me from this interview;

 

"What tends to dull the appetite [for learning] is being force fed things that people can't see an immediately relevance in or don't have an immediate interest in it...or where they are forced to learn in situations where they are inimitable... you know, 8 hours a day, sit still, do as you're told."

 

Bring on different ways of engaging with people around learning so that they not only 'get it' but they really enjoy it and become life long learners.

 

I recommend this 15 minute video to you!
