2 Ways Successful People Learn Faster (And So Can You)

2 Ways Successful People Learn Faster (And So Can You) | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

But what I did realize is that successful people are successful because they approach learning in a consistent, systematic, results-focused way.  Bravery isn't a requirement for success. Innate talent isn't a requirement for success. Talented, highly skilled people don't take big risks yet they still learn to accomplish big things.

How? They prepare. They train. They constantly experiment and adapt and refine, refine, refine. Successful people gain superior skills not by breaking through the envelope but by approaching and then slowly and incrementally expanding the boundaries of that envelope.

The key to learning is to make small, smart changes, evaluate the results, discard what doesn't work, and further refine what does work. When you constantly modify and refine something you already do well, you can do it even better.

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.

Leadership is a learned skill and can be developed.  All you need is a growth mindset and an willingness to push boundaries, be a life-long learner, so that real learning and grown can take place. 

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 17, 2015 11:54 AM

Vygotsky talked of the Zone of Proximal Development, and this article is in line with that foundational philosophy about learning.  When we think about improving schools, both of Vygotsky and this article apply.  We need leaders, teachers, and students operating outside their comfort zone, taking risks, setting goals, and learning.  There is a danger in struggling schools to push too hard and move buying the productive zone for learning.  This article speaks well to that aspect of learning.  With good intentions, leaders at building, district, and state level often push a school and omits staff beyond the productive learning zone into the danger zone.  This is done through programs, initiatives, and monitoring often with the goal of providing support, but with the result of overwhelming the school and staff.

jhenehan's curator insight, December 3, 2013 12:09 PM

I feel that the purpose of this article was to discuss how the common core was being implemented in Wisconsin and how they already feel that there may need to be some tweaking to these new standards. I think and feel that this is a good thing. Tweaking standards and improving them can always be beneificial in the long run. It mentions how the prior standards were too vague and that the new common core standards create more of a critical thinking atmosphere. I agree with the article that setting higher goals and assessing those goals can make better grades and performance in the long run. Boosting learning will always be important!!
