Innovator’s Mindset: Teaching Students to be Problem Finders | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
Why are we giving kids problems to solve? Why don’t we help them learn to find their own problems? George Couros left an Innovation Day wondering if the kids tried to solve new problems or if they just copied what they saw other kids do. Did the kids see problems and did they see themselves […]

If You Have Imposter Syndrome, Don’t Tell People What To Do, Tell Them What Works

If You Have Imposter Syndrome, Don’t Tell People What To Do, Tell Them What Works | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
Imposter syndrome happens when you feel like a fraud, especially in a professional sense, even though you’re not. You can’t accept your accomplishments and instead feel like you have no business doing what you do, so you feel inadequate in your position. It isn’t all bad, but it can get in the way of performing to the best of your ability. If you feel like an imposter, you might have a difficult time telling your co-workers or audience what to do. Instead of telling people what to do, try telling them what works for you.

Tony Guzman's curator insight, January 28, 12:02 PM

This article shares how virtual reality is slowly showing up in education. Are we ready for this disruption?

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, February 3, 1:38 PM

While statistics on VR use in K-­12 schools and colleges have yet to be gathered, the steady growth of the market is reflected in the surge of companies solely dedicated to providing schools with packaged educational curriculum, content, teacher training and technological tools to support VR­-based instruction in the classroom.

Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s curator insight, February 10, 11:44 AM

It seems we can hope to use it also in education pretty soon.

Victor Ventura's curator insight, February 13, 8:25 AM

Most of us have to work on our basic tech skills. This list is a good place to start. It could serve as a start to a Tech PD series for many schools or districts.

Gordon Dahlby's comment, February 13, 6:12 PM
Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.
Rod Murray's comment, February 13, 7:21 PM
If every teacher had this skill set, that would dramatically change teaching and learning. The "vendors" are, contrary to your suggestion, mostly free technologies that can and do change teaching and learning.

A 10-year study highlights the trickiest, most impactful trait of successful business leaders | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it

Good decision-making skills, an understanding of one’s entire company, and a knowledge of the broader industry are all decent qualities for business leaders to have. But there’s another characteristic that can help make the difference between being a good CEO and being a great one.


It’s a knack for building solid relationships.
