The Vision

From the executive summary:


"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…"

Bring Your Own Device #BYOD - 5 Lessons for Success | ICT Leadership | Scoop.it

When it comes to BYOD, it takes a lot of people to ensure success.  Most problems can be solved, but usually not on the spot.  A successful pilot is one that is planned in advanced and communicated with the people that need to be involved to make it happen.  Advance communication with other experienced BYOD teachers in and outside your district and seeing what issues they have run across may save you a lot of time, heartache, and headaches as well.

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.

History has some terrifying answers on what people can do collectively when locked into a set idea of "knowledge."

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.

This new report, “Learning in the 21st Century: Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers,” is the latest in the series and provides new insights that will inform college and university based teacher preparation programs as well as the induction and professional development processes within K-12 schools and districts. Tomorrow’s teachers may have the keys to finally unlock the potential of technology to transform teaching and learning, but much depends upon their experiences in their preparation program and how well future school leadership can support their expectations for essential technology tools and resources.

No Longer a Luxury: Digital Literacy Can’t Wait

Digital literacy is about more than just adding technology into the teaching we already do. The following common teaching practices that we have seen in classrooms as researchers and as parents of school-age children do not help develop digital literacy and may even kill students’ motivation to develop their savvy use of technology and the Internet. We must stop these practices. Immediately.

I feel as much for the parent of these homes as I do for the children it can not be easy wearing all the hats.

El arte de curar información en la Web es más que una práctica del conectivismo, es parte de un ejercicio de aprendizaje e inteligencia colectiva.
John Thomas's curator insight, February 12, 5:20 AM

Pawan Deshpande, founder and CEO of Curata, has just published an article that provides some very useful guidelines to content marketers interested in improving their basic content curation skills.

 

The article provides six alternative approaches to curating content, from simple ones like quoting and retitling, to more advanced ones like parallelizing, storyboarding and summarizing.

 

The context provided in this article circles around three key factors:

Quantity of effortSEO valueAdded value

so that you can compare, among the alternative curation approaches presented, the ones that better match your own needs.

 

But, beware. Though content marketing experts have you believe that saving time, seo impact and traffic size are key variables to go after, I remain of the impression that true "added value" provides order of magnitude greater benefits than the other two combined. 

 

In other words, to rank and evaluate the value of a curation approach versus another, I would ask: Does the curation produced help other people make better sense of a topic? Does it allow for others to learn about an issue without having to juggle and research tens of dubious resources? Does it save the reader time in learning about the topic he's interested in while providing him with all the needed info?

 

Having said this, I deem this article particularly useful for content marketers getting interested in content curation, and in learning which approaches they can adopt, besides reposting and sharing the best content they can find, to improve their "value added" propositions.

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10
