Educational Leadership - Expecting Excellence: Rigor Redefined | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I like the word vigour. It fits with life. I agree we need new education and that is not a new package with technology as the add-on. It is a whole new way of thinking i.e. a Kuhnian paradigm shift.

A short article on rigor, with input from industrial managers.  The role of questioning in rigor is raised, as well as collaboration, leadership, agility, adaptibility, initiative, entrepreneurialism, oral/written communication, accessing/analyzing information, and curiousity/imagination.

Leadership Turns On the Lights

Leadership Turns On the Lights | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
I have worked with people who seemed to think their authority came from keeping the rest of us in the dark. They told us only what they thought we needed to know. They withheld information that would have helped us do a better job.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

It is a great metaphor. It is not just leaving people in the dark it is about surprising them as well. With the lights on we have a chance to see where the next step might land.

Transparency is more complex than people tend to believe. It applies to how information/data is chosen, why it is relevant to the problem solving and decision making. Transparency also applies to the processes of problem solving, related concerns, laws/regulations/policies restricting certain actions, and can include domain specific conventions and strategies that may not be easily grasped in a sentence or two. Charts and graphs are only a small piece to the facilitation of transparency.
