Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

I find it interesting that we want to prepare good citizens. Preparing good people with strong character leads to good citizens. I will take the latter over the former, because I will get the former. Plato had a theory of educating for good citizens. It was very narrow. Is that what we want?

Why It's Time To Put Students In The Driver's Seat

Why It's Time To Put Students In The Driver's Seat | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Think about how you or the people you work with approach the creation of a blended learning lesson plan. The first steps of coming up with and flushing out your initial idea. Then, scouring the web to find safe, factually accurate sites that are not blocked by your school filters and checking the fine print …

 

This method of teaching does require a certain amount of bravery. There is a very real chance that when a student asks you a question (How do I add media? How do I change the font? How do I import pictures? etc. etc.) you will have to say the dreaded “I don’t know”. But the neat thing is, your students are ok with this. You’re all learning as you go. More often than not another child in the class will be using the same site or will have at least used it before. If a classmate knows the answer, they can step into the role of teacher – from which much confidence is gained and leadership skills are learned.


Even the most reserved kid really enjoys teaching their teacher a trick or two. If no one knows the answer, they can collaborate to find the solution; an activity that provides important life skills with many real-world applications. All while leaving the initiative, process development and ownership of the learning itself right where it belongs, in the hands of the learners.


Gust MEES: I started with it in 2002 already and was a pioneer in my country, BUT I got BEST results! Make sure to work TOGETHER as a TEAM with the students, learners, create ALSO some groups where the BEST work together with the weakest. YOU will love it later and YOU will miss it as it gives YOU a direct feedback of WHAT THEY learned and YOU adjust on demand and necessity... WHEN the BEST feel boring, give THEM a special task to motivate THEM ;) ===> Adjust <===.


Concerning the questions from the students, please check my advice here:

Three Cups of Tea

Three Cups of Tea | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
In today’s fast paced world of instant communication, short deadlines,
e-mail, text, online chat, social media, speed networking and deal-making,
I think we can all agree that the old fashioned art of
relationship-building has been somewhat diminished in its importance, if
not lost altogether?

It wasn’t always this way. When I started work in the City of London in the
late 1970s, the senior partners would regularly disappear for lunch with
clients at around 12 noon and, more often than not, wouldn’t be seen again
until the next morning.  And when I worked in Hong Kong in the late 1980s,
I remember the most respected networkers were those who typically blocked
out their lunchtimes every day to meet with people who, if not now, might
be useful connections in the future. Despite how this might sound now, this
investment in relationship-building usually paid off in terms of acquiring
new clients, generating more revenue and increased profitability, and the
expenses involved were regarded as the acceptable “cost of doing business”.
To prove the point, most Governments around the world regarded these
expenses as fully tax deductible, as long as you could find the receipts!

Without doubt, the long business lunch, if not a quick chat over a sandwich
at your desk in between meetings, is definitely a casualty of the online
age, and is now regarded as an extravagance, if not a disgraceful
indulgence reminiscent of a bygone era!

These days we do business with people we hardly know, and possibly don’t
even like, assuming we can get them to sign up to a water tight contract
drafted by a highly paid lawyer and do as we promise.  In this post
industrial age, with an ever-expanding army of lawyers and standard
contracts at your disposal, you can simply sit behind your computer and do
business with anyone you want, almost anywhere in the world, with an
electronic signature and the click of a mouse!

Until now, that is…

Is Everyone a Leader?

Is Everyone a Leader? | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
We believe everyone is a leader and, together, we can co-create a better future. However, we recognise that not everyone agrees with us. This article explores different perspectives of leadership.

Via Create Wise Leader, Bobby Dillard, Roy Sheneman, PhD
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:
The short answer is it depends on how we define leading. Understood as emergent, distributed, and collective the answer is yes. More traditional understandings based on hierarchy and position means not as likely.

One that is missing is servant-leadership, which each person is capable of serving and leading. By its nature, teaching is leading even if we do not acknowledge teachers as leaders. Teachers are pedagogues and educate, both of which are etymologically tied to leading.

We have not really had democracy. The closest we come is when small groups get together and make choices. The article explores what freedom means in a broad context and is interesting. It points out that with more complex algorithms machines will continue to replace humans in their daily jobs. What does that mean for leading, teaching, and learning.

Freedom or what we think is freedom does not really exist. It is contingent upon biological, economic, technological, etc. factors. The first one is tied into identity and refers to Alan Watts' concept of identity as fluid. What we think of us static identity is the "I" and only exists abstractly.

Appreciation: On Elizabeth Hardwick, essayist, critic, teacher, novelist - by Darryl Pinckney | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
For Elizabeth Hardwick, literary criticism had to be up there with its subjects; real literature should elicit criticism worthy of the achievement in question. We got that from her straight off. The kind of modern literary criticism she was talking about—Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence, Edmund Wilson, Randall Jarrell, R.P. Blackmur, John Berryman, F.W. Dupee, Mary McCarthy—was as stimulating as the work it was exploring. Then, too, she wanted us to take seriously the essay as a form. The American essay—Thoreau, Emerson—was an important part of American history.
