The Tension Connection - What’s A Tension Map?

The Tension Connection - What’s A Tension Map? | ICT Leadership | Scoop.it
After reading Steven’s Snyder’s new book, Leadership and the Art of Struggle, I wanted to know more about his theory of positive and destructive tension.  So we connected to talk about vision, experiences, maps and tension.

My key take away:  The right pressures in the right combinations create positive Flow.

Steven describes several sources of tension which he maps into quadrants.   We experience “tensions of tradition” when we work to challenge and disrupt our team’s patterns.   We may feel the “tensions of aspiration” when we have conflicting visions or goals for the future.  These can be good, or the source of deep struggle.

I asked Steve to share more… just how can those tight shoulders lead to “flow”?  What would I want my map to look like?

“Maps which show moderate to moderate-high levels of aspirational tension, lower levels of Tradition Tension and very low levels of Relationship or Identity Tension are which i would call “Flow”.    Tension maps which show low levels of all tensions are not producing enough tension to motivate high levels of achievement.

With respect to higher levels of tension.  This is a struggle.  There is not an “ideal” type of struggle.  everyone struggles differently.  The point is that the tension map can tell you what to do about it.”

Make Your Own Map

If you’re curious as to how this all works, you can get in on a free pilot of Steve’s online assessment, Adaptive Leader Profile.  You go online, answer some questions about yourself and your situation, and he will send you back a free map and interpretation.  The only caveat is that you need to wait until he get’s enough data to ensure validity (hey, it’s a pilot).

I took it, and am looking forward to the report.  Like you, I’ve got plenty of pressure worth mapping.

For great synopsis and overviews of Snyder’s book checkout these posts by Jon Mertz or Bill George.  Or download a free chapter.

Beyond the Classroom: A New Digital Education for Young Australians in the 21 st Century

The new digital education environment will look and function very differently. In addition to classroom teaching, staff will develop new ways of teaching that embrace digital education, and ‘bring your own device’ learning models will be integrated into the learning environment. Strong leadership in schools will be needed to support this new environment, to increase teacher capacity and to support the uptake of digital education in schools.

One to read - all teachers

Conan Gogan's curator insight, March 23, 8:44 AM

I have just read an interesting report from the Digital Education Advisory Group on education in Australia.

I agree with the author of this article, 21st century education consists of computers and all the advanced technologies to help children to learn in a more efficient way. As technology is upgrading and becoming more advanced, so are the teachers. Teachers that teach in the 21st century education system have developed a more effecient and more interesting way to teach the children today.

I believe that in the future the education system will once again change and the children of the future will learn much more efficiently. This upgrade in the education will have a positive influence on the children as they benefit from it, they will learn faster and understand what they are taught better. 

Although there is a big upgrade in the technology and education systems today, it is not truly fool proof. There will always be children who might not understand what is going on in the classroom as the attention span of children is not long no matter the upgrade in technology.

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.
Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 19, 5:10 AM

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.

"Personalisation, collaboration and informal learning will be at the core of learning in the future. The increased pace of change will bring new skills and competences to the fore, in particular generic, transversal and cross-cutting skills….


With the evolution of ICT, personalised learning and individual mentoring will become a reality and teachers/trainers will need to be trained to exploit the available resources and tools to support tailor-made learning pathways and experiences which are motivating and engaging, but also efficient, relevant and challenging…"

This is more fun at the public library then at a school, but communication or organization are vital for a successful program. Learning the device is definitely not the same as familiarizing oneself with apps, that should definitely be a separate program. Valuable tips.
