Making the best use of #Evernote and #GoogleDrive

Michaela Vila's curator insight, February 13, 8:42 AM

This is a fantastic idea for students to combined PBL and technology. I think this is also a way for teachers to digitally document PBL. I use an iPad and Evernote every day for school, but I never thought of it being a tool for as a future teacher. Though this idea would could only be used for a small amount of classrooms right now, I love this idea and I want to keep it in my back pocket.

Excellent scoop John.  This one is especially helpful for me:

 

Patience ~ The saying “patience is a virtue” has a higher meaning for a leader. In today’s frantic and chaotic world, having patience can seem like a luxury you can’t afford.


Nonetheless, with proper planning, a good understanding of your team’s strengths and vulnerabilities, plus, having a clear idea of your goal can award you patience.


A task well done means it doesn’t have to be corrected or repeated and you can move on to the next one. Pause, refocus and apply your best efforts into single-tasking. Too many undertakings at once will only force you to rush, head first, right into a brick wall.


Rushing and pressuring your team only propagates confusion and mistakes. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Ricard Lloria's comment, July 22, 2013 4:41 AM
Great and excellent article Al. Have a great day!!
John Michel's curator insight, July 22, 2013 4:43 PM

Without purpose a leader is lost; it means having a direction and destination. A leader has to set an objective, map out the best route and execute the plan. Most importantly, if your purpose is clear then your team will inevitably trust you and instinctively follow your lead.

A Wonderful Wheel featuring iPad Apps for Autistic Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Wheel featuring iPad Apps for Autistic Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | IPrincipal | Scoop.it

"I must admit that apps for autistic learners are really scarce and hard to find. A few months ago I posted here a list some powerful apps for autism and today while I was looking for new apps that might have been created since the publication of that list I came across this wonderful wheel.

I know that the first thing that comes to mind when you see this wheel is the popular pedagogy Wheel created by Allan Carrington in which he provided suggestions for 62 apps based on Bloom's Taxonomy. The present wheel is developed by Mark Coppin in which he featured a wide variety of apps for autistic students."

Positioning yourself, your team, and your company as top thinkers in a given space is an effective way to build credibility and grow your brand.

(From the article): Here’s where it all comes together. You can provide context and consequences, and, you can leave the choice of action to the employee. But the bottom line is, you are the leader and you are the one held ultimately accountable for the overall performance.

 

Keeping that role in perspective can help you provide the sincere, honest feedback. This is your job, and the ultimate decisions about the work of the team falls to you.

 

You aren’t their friend, you’re their leader and your responsibility is to provide open and candid feedback. It is their choice to accept it or not.

Thanks to John, David and Wise Leader!  Great scoop.

 

From the article:

 

Develop Awareness– Great leaders are self aware, organizationally aware, culturally aware, contextually aware, and emotionally aware. They value listening, engaging, observing, and learning over pontificating. They value sensitivity over insensitivity and humility over hubris. Leaders who come across as if they know everything haven’t fooled anyone – except themselves.

 
Doris Palomino's curator insight, June 18, 2013 7:24 AM

The 5 key transitions the author proposes make you think about how great human beings we expect great leaders to be: (1) find purpose, (2) people first, (3) develop awareness, (4) shun complexity, and (5) get personal. And I could not agree more about the fact how many people assume the responsability to lead but only a few can do it well: "Average leaders spend time scaling processes, systems, and models – great leaders focus on scaling leadership".
