Stages of team life

Market Leader
Anica Petkoska's insight:

STAGES OF TEAM LIFE

The typical team is said to go through a number of stages during its existence.

1 Forming. The group is anxious and feels dependent on a leader. The group will be attempting to discover how it’s going to operate, what the normal behaviors will be: how supportive, how critical, how serious and how humorous the group will be.

2 Storming. The atmosphere may be one of conflict, with rebellion against the leader, conflict between the sub-groups and resistance to control. There is likely to be resistance to the task, and even the sense that the task is impossible.

3 Norming. At this stage, members of the group feel closer together and the conflicts are settled, or at least forgotten. Members of the group will start to support each other. There is increasingly the feeling that the task is possible to achieve.

4 Performing. The group is carrying out the task for which it was formed. Roles within the group are flexible, with people willing to do the work normally done by others. Members feel safe enough to express differences of opinion in relation to others.

5 Mourning. The group is disbanded; its members begin to feel nostalgic about its activities and achievements. Perhaps they go for a meal or drink to celebrate.

All part and parcel of having your 'digital' voice heard.  Great tool.

Not the same old PPT that we used to use.

Je suis de plus en plus convaincu qu'il faut raconter des histoires, même à des 'grands'.

Santa left a new Kindle, iPad or other media player under your tree. He did his job. Now we'll do ours. We'll tell you how to fill those devices with free intelligent media -- great books, movies, courses, and all of the rest.
Anica Petkoska's insight:

Santa left a new Kindle, iPad or other media player under your tree. He did his job. Now we’ll do ours. We’ll tell you how to fill those devices with free intelligent media — great books, movies, courses, and all of the rest. And if you didn’t get a new gadget, fear not. You can access all of these materials on the good old fashioned computer. Here we go:

Free eBooks: You have always wanted to read the great works. And now is your chance. When you dive into our Free eBooks collection you will find 375 great works by some classic writers (Dickens, Dostoevsky, Shakespeare and Tolstoy) and contemporary writers (F. Scott Fitzgerald, Philip K. Dick, Isaac Asimov, and Kurt Vonnegut). The collection also gives you access to the 51-volume Harvard Classics.

If you’re an iPad/iPhone user, the download process is super easy. Just click the “iPad/iPhone” links and you’re good to go. Kindle and Nook users will generally want to click the “Kindle + Other Formats links” to download ebook files, but we’d suggest watching these instructional videos (Kindle –Nook) beforehand.

What If Schools Created a Culture of "Do" INSTEAD of a Culture of "Know?" - The Tempered Radical

What If Schools Created a Culture of "Do" INSTEAD of a Culture of "Know?" - The Tempered Radical | educators tools | Scoop.it
Here at Educon yesterday, I had the chance to learn a bit more about design thinking from David Jakes. David's central point was that schools and teachers often get stuck in a "Yeah, but..." mindset when thinking about change.
Anica Petkoska's insight:

Schools and teachers often get stuck in a "Yeah, but..." mindset when thinking about change. Instead of dreaming about what's possible -- taking a "What if" stance towards the challenges standing in our way -- we're all too ready to trip over the hurdles in front of us without even attempting to jump.
