donhornsby's curator insight, October 14, 2013 7:21 AM

(From the article): At your company, you are the intergalactic traveler. Your company is the inside and the marketplace is the outside. It's your job as CEO to see opportunities others do not. Most of your organization (with the exception of sales people) tends to focus internally, and it's difficult for them to shift gears to focus externally. Therefore, you are to fill that void. This is not to say that you should not engage and intently listen to your internal employees. This simply means you ultimately are the one who must make the decisions.

Teachers need more time to help pupils learn, researchers say

Teachers need more time to help pupils learn, researchers say | Leadership | Scoop.it

Researchers have recommended more time between teachers and pupils to improve learning. 

A team of researchers has recommended for more time between teachers and pupils as a way of improving the ability of pupils to read and do math from an early stage in school.

In a an report released on Monday, the Kenya Primary Math Reading Initiative (PRIMR), the scholars have argued that the current system of teaching makes it difficult for pupils to grasp reading because the teacher spends the entire lesson on a single subject.

Although this was in Kenya, it applies in a broader context than just there. I like the point about parents being a child's first teacher. If we see education through this lens, perhaps it becomes a community or village endeavour.
