The Path to Teacher Leadership in Educational Technology

Educational technology adoption models have not traditionally incorporated either teacher leadership or the complex systems in which teachers work. This article presents two frameworks for viewing online technologies and implementation practices within the complex interrelationships among key actors and parts of an educational system. The Learning/Adoption Trajectory and Systemic Sustainability models, developed in different lines of research, fit together to better explain the path to sustainable systems of teacher leadership in educational technology.

Leading Innovation is the Art of Creating ‘Collective Genius’

Leading Innovation is the Art of Creating ‘Collective Genius’ | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

As Linda Hill sees it, innovation requires its own brand of leadership. The coauthor of the new book Collective Genius discusses what's been learned from 16 of the best business innovators.



Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Joe Boutte's insight:

I would also recommend Clay Shirky's "Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations" for a different perspective of crowdsourcing and innovation.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, June 22, 12:01 PM

"Innovation is a "team sport," not the act of a sole inventor. "Truly innovative groups are consistently able to elicit and then combine members' separate slices of genius into a single work of collective genius," the authors write.

Joe Boutte's insight:

"...leaders take initiative. They don’t wait for a title. They see a need and act on it. When the call goes out for help, they are the first to raise their hand. Leadership is about serving. There are countless ways in every organization to step up and serve. True leaders are servant leaders and are not in it for their own glory. For those wanting to rise in their leadership, I encourage you to begin today by seeking ways to contribute and add value. Titles will follow – leadership can begin immediately."

(From the article): Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive. They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

Social Technology and the Changing Context of Leadership

Social Technology and the Changing Context of Leadership | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

Social technologies with their inherent democratic, anti-hierarchical quality easily transcend internal and external boundaries, suddenly creating a powerful thrust for horizontal collaboration and participation. They give each and every member of an organization a creative voice and enable real-time virtual connectivity in a way we have never seen before. This makes them a great catalyst for the organizational principles that are required by the new leadership context of the 21st century.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Joe Boutte's insight:

Everyday leadership integrates all modes of communications.  21st century leaders should leverage new social technologies to communicate strategy, ideas, news, and priorities.  Unleashing communications from the email treadmill to extend and enhance face-to-face and other traditional communications methods is a force multiplier for organizational leadership.

Paying for Students lunches

She suggested that instead of paying for people's coffee, I should help local students by paying off delinquent lunch accounts. She got the idea from a news the story about a kid in Utah who was denied lunch because his account was in the negative just earlier that week. When she heard that some kids refuse to eat at all so that they aren't seen with the bag lunch for students with delinquent accounts, she called her school the next day and paid off 12 accounts.

How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way

How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

When I started my first company, I hired people I knew and loved.  I thought, Why wouldn't I want to work with my friends all day?

In many cases that worked out fine. Then my company began to grow beyond my circle of friends. The talents required for success became a bigger priority than the camaraderie.

 

I was usually able to find people who fit the culture and the job description and whom I also enjoyed spending time with. But every once in a while the person I needed to hire just wasn't my cup of tea. And while we shared mutual respect, spending time with this person became a chore, as did the experience of managing him or her.

 


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor, Elysian Training
Joe Boutte's insight:

I think we all run into people that irritate us and this article from inc.com has some good pointers for overcoming irritation.  I wouldn't characterize it as "managing" irritating people, because we manage things.  We lead people, even those who irritate us, through influence and everyday leadership approaches to get the job or mission accomplished.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, May 29, 3:33 PM

You can't love everyone who works for you. Here we share how to manage talented people who you find irritating.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 30, 6:08 AM

(From the article): It's not that uncommon in larger companies to have employees who do a great job but their personality just rubs you the wrong way.  People are people and not everyone can be totally dispassionate. But a great manager can put aside their personal feelings and look objectively. I have mostly found that those people who make me uncomfortable are often my greatest teachers.
