Schools Failing Students by not Teaching Failure - Tech Cocktail

Schools Failing Students by not Teaching Failure - Tech Cocktail | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Most students grow up thinking failure in school is tantamount to failure in life. Schools failing students has to be fixed by actually teaching failure.

Jennifer McGuff's curator insight, August 1, 5:26 PM

Standardized tests do not simulate real life and very often are not connected to the real demands of the workplace. Teaching needs to go beyond failing students and instead raise motivated learners who will make a difference in the world by solving real world problems.

The Benefits of Learning as a Team

The Benefits of Learning as a Team | Education and Training | Scoop.it



As each of us takes on more responsibility, we seem to misplace the necessity of learning. We learn through our actions and from feedback, but how often do we sit down to distill our failures or mistakes into actionable lessons? How often do we connect seemingly unrelated ideas or insights to challenge our comfort zones?

Why Leadership Development Programs Fail: Weak Foundations

Why Leadership Development Programs Fail: Weak Foundations | Education and Training | Scoop.it
McKinsey made an argument for why leadership development programs fail. At Kotter International, we recognize the difficulty in successfully implementing these programs, but we also believe they can be a key component to helping you and your organization thrive in an increasingly complex world. Part 1 of this series highlighted the importance of setting and communicating realistic expectations around leadership development programs. Part 2 of this series explores the critical role of solid, empirical research as the basis for the development of these programs.

Always be reflective. There is no growth without reflection. I particularly like "you don't do what you're told." Yes, when you are told to adhere to the Common Core skills list, certainly listen, but design backward from them through the lens of your content.

The First Question This Teacher Asks Her Students Every Day | Education and Training | Scoop.it
In my neighborhood, keeping school fields in good shape is a high priority. At Sonya Romero-Smith's school, kids are just grateful for food and clean socks.
Bobby Dillard's insight:

Regardless who is your audience the instructor must address priority needs first before moving on to the scheduled instruction. There will be little learning if those needs are not met.

The tyranny of the "right" answer

The tyranny of the "right" answer | Education and Training | Scoop.it

 Walk into most classrooms from kindergarten to college and it is likely that you will still hear the same “Who can tell me?” question uttered by the teacher. There is nothing inherently wrong with that question. The problem resides in the context in which the question is asked and what happens in the minds and hearts of those who hear it.

Your Team Can’t Read Your Mind

Your Team Can’t Read Your Mind | Education and Training | Scoop.it

When you live or work with people for a while, it’s easy to assume that they can read your mind and that you can read theirs. Whether it’s a spouse or a long-time team member, you may presume that you know what they’re thinking and that you can save time and effort by not having to spell everything out. Unfortunately, though, mind reading is a risky short cut, and is more likely to backfire than not.

The review identified the eight elements that go into making great professional development:

Duration: effective professional development lasts at least two semesters, and needs a ‘rhythm’ of follow-up and consolidation;Targeted: the content should be relevant to the teachers’ needs and day-to-day experiences;Aligned: no single activity is universally effective – instead it is a combination that reinforced the message from different perspectives that works;Content: successful development must consider both subject knowledge and subject-specific teaching techniques;Activities: successful development features common types of activities including discussion, experimentation and analysis and reflection;External input: constructive external input provides new perspectives and challenges orthodoxies;Collaboration: peer support gives participants an opportunity to work together and refine new approaches;Leadership: effective leaders get involved in development, define opportunities and provide the support needed to embed change.

Maslow’s hierarchy of eLearning needs

Maslow’s hierarchy of eLearning needs | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Abraham Maslow did wonders for understanding human needs and motivations by creating a simple and applicable scale. After creating his scale, called the Hierarchy of Needs, Maslow himself started to apply his work to various disciplines. Following in this trend, the principles of his Hierarchy can be applied directly to the work an eLearning team performs.

We’ll start by discussing the individual levels of the eLearning hierarchy and then wrap up what it means for you in your position.
