Most homework is 'pointless', expert says - Telegraph | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

A new Ofsted regime will encourage teachers to set “completely pointless” homework for their students, an education expert has claimed.

Youngsters will be forced to endure more “back breaking” after-school tasks with little educational value, according to Tom Bennett, director of the ResearchEd conference.

He added that schools were encouraging “the pickpocketing of family life” by setting youngsters futile work in order to hit targets.

Under the new regime of England’s inspectorate, Ofsted, progress will be shown through schoolbooks and homework, he said.

Writing in the Times Educational Supplement, Mr Bennett, who teaches at a school in Essex, argued this would encourage teachers to set more after-school tasks.

Describing many homework tasks as “so much wasted on so little”, he cited real examples including ‘Design your own ideal bedroom’ and ‘Imagine how Jesus felt on the cross and draw it’.

 

He wrote: “I have no problem with setting challenging homework but I do disagree with the pickpocketing of family life to serve the requirements of a school’s homework timetable.

Virtually all homework is pointless, unless it somehow advances student learning in meaningful ways.

Insights on ▲▼#Leadership & Narcissism▲▼

Insights on ▲▼#Leadership & Narcissism▲▼ | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it


In most circumstances, narcissism doesn’t go over well. We tend not to like individuals who exhibit arrogance or too much dominance or hostility—all traits associated with the narcissist. But there’s one big exception to the rule: leadership...

 

For some reason, when we rate narcissists on leadership qualities, we put them up there with the best, ranking them high on those attributes that we think make a good leader and happily putting responsibility into their hands.

 

And it actually kind of makes sense. Some of the same characteristics that signal good leadership—confidence, authority, dominance—also make for a narcissistic personality type. But is narcissism actually a good quality in a leader?

 

 

¿ Narcissistic leaders hinder information flow

 

¿ What is necessary for optimal decision results?

 

¿ The mark of a good leader

 

 

Perhaps it’s time to reassess what qualities we stress in a good leader—and what qualities we perceive as signs of weakness.

 

The gap between reality and perception is a persistent one – and one that leaves us with leaders who may look to be the picture of effectiveness but are actually the very things that are keeping true effectiveness from being fully realized...

 

☛What is Narcissism?

Narcissism is most often described as unhealthy and destructive…"narcissistic leadership can be driven by unyielding arrogance, self-absorption, and a personal egotistic need for power and admiration…

http://bit.ly/1zNS8W8

http://bit.ly/1AfPVla

 

 

☛Define Narcissistic Leadership?

Narcissistic leadership is a leadership style in which the leader is only interested in him/herself. Their priority is themselves - at the expense of their people/group members. This leader exhibits the characteristics of a narcissist: arrogance, dominance and hostility. It is a sufficiently common leadership style that it has acquired its own name...

http://bit.ly/1AfPVla

 

 

☛Tell me more about the narcissistic leader

Narcissistic leaders are those who are concerned only with their own self-actualisation, social standing and place in the world – they are self-absorbed and take actions to improve these factors, even if it’s at the expense of other people.

http://bit.ly/1th8jDT

 

¡ 10 Traits of Narcissistic Leaders

1. When leaders think others are there to serve them instead of vice versa. This reverses the principle in

2. When leaders want the perks of the ministry without the pain of the ministry. 

3. When leaders put their own needs before the needs of the organization they lead. 

 4. Leaders who are self-indulgent when it comes to the material things of this world. 

5. Leaders who look for close relationships with those who pander to them and avoid those that confront them. 

6. When leaders view people as objects to use for their own advantage

7. Leaders who are uninterested in other people’s problems. 

8. Leaders who rarely give in to other people’s ideas. 

9. Leaders who cannot have intimate emotional connections with close associates or their spouses. 

10. Narcissistic leaders are more vulnerable to sexual sins. 

http://bit.ly/1vp3s3s

 

 

☛Can Narcissistic leadership be toxic?

http://bit.ly/1voWdII

http://bit.ly/1HZv7Pj

 

Narcissistic leadership can be toxic to organisational success as decisions are made based on the individual’s own needs rather than those of the organisation. This damaging effect is more acute if the leaders are senior, as the types of decisions they make have more potential to hurt the organisation.

 

In corporate situations, narcissistic leaders will surround themselves with co-dependents who are used to help the narcissist achieve his or her agenda. Without these ‘cronies’ there may be too much organisational oversight for narcissistic leaders to be able to push forward with their own agenda.

Some leaders are clearly narcissists. Is narcissism good, bad, or neutral?

A major characteristic of a learning culture is that individuals, teams, and whole organizations are constantly learning how to learn. They are learning how to acquire the knowledge and skills that they need to help the organization be successful. The teacher-centered, classroom-focused, right-and-wrong answer, static instructional environment that was the primary modality in the schools they attended does not fit the rapidly changing, technology mediated, on-demand knowledge and skills that are needed in today’s organizations. In this environment, people need to be continually figuring out different ways to learn, whether that be individually using new technology, or in teams that are trying to become more effective, or as the whole organization learning how to communicate, how to use resources more efficiently, or how to make better decisions.

Just as reading transforms us, so can writing impact and improve us. Whether reading or writing, or listening or speaking, our use of words matters.

Audrey's curator insight, January 4, 2015 6:05 PM

You activate many areas of your brain when you tell a story.  There are so many areas in education where students can use stories to remember details of information needed for writing  exam answers.  Stories are visual,  can be auditory; you can introduce smells and engage with whatever you are writing about. 

 

The whole brain becomes stimulated with a person's own  record of the information.  How can you forget?
