Of all the losses a modern corporation can suffer, one stands out: a mass exodus of talent due to a toxic work market environment, which has the potential to ruin the organization. But toxic environments are not the result of spontaneous bad fortune.

Is Education Broken? The Problem with US Standardized Testing in Public Schools | The Digital Media Diet

Is Education Broken? The Problem with US Standardized Testing in Public Schools | The Digital Media Diet | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ~ Nelson Mandela Last night Jayne Clare from TeachersWithApps held their EdAppTalk on Facebook to discuss standardized testing in US schools for 2nd-11th graders, based on their recent post, “Isn’t it TIME to Stand Up Against Standardized Testing?” It made me realize it is also time for me share my concerns and why I would like to see test reform in our schools as soon as possible. I have come to the realization that it will require real protest from parents and will be opting my own child out of testing when he enters 2nd grade next year. While this is not a typical ‘digital media’ topic, it does impact everything happening in the world of education and apps.

Via Alberto Acereda, Ph.D., NikolaosKourakos, Rui Guimarães Lima, Yashy Tohsaku
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

Why should any discipline or subject be subjected to loss? We need them all as complements to each other. We should think more about trans-cultural rather than multicultural. The former requires we cross the boundaries. The latter only that we know they are there. Is it important what one person, albeit the President, thinks or does?

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

Two articles that caught my attention were the first two. The first links with my dissertation. The story of each teacher is their story only and can only be experienced by them. I never thought I was one of the best teachers, but I chose not to have tests in the classroom. It is inconsistent with the way we live life. We do not go around responding to the world in a multiple-choice fashion.

Be the Source, Not an Imitator

Last week while in Vegas, I saw Larry the Cable Guy off in the distance.
I expected everyone in the room to be flocking to him. Although a few people went up to get their picture taken with him, he was pretty much left alone. I decided to go over and talk with him. I quickly discovered that he is the Las Vegas Larry. In other words, an impersonator. He looks a lot like him and sounds exactly like him. But he is not the real deal.
I’m certain that if the real Larry the Cable Guy were in that bar, people would have been flocking to him.
This got me thinking.

Víctor Xepiti Eme's curator insight, November 6, 2014 10:37 AM
Education has to reclaim its sense of purpose. It has to stand for something more than getting good grades. It has to persuade people to invest in it, not just financially but emotionally, because it builds character and helps people to lead more successful lives. It has to dare to stand for something more than the pieces of paper it hands out to
children as they leave.

The Management Myth

The Management Myth | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
What they don’t seem to teach you in business school is that “the five forces” and “the seven Cs” and every other generic framework for problem solving are heuristics: they can lead you to solutions, but they cannot make you think. Case studies may provide an effective way to think business problems through, but the point is rather lost if students come away imagining that you can go home once you’ve put all of your eggs into a two-by-two growth-share matrix.

 


Via F. Thunus, David Hain
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

Management is about combining leading and management together. Peter Vaill wrote about this extensively. There is no set routine that allows work to get done. It is about being aware and listening. How often do we find out the people on the floor or in the classroom had the best approach?
