Why Leaders Are Poor Communicators

Why Leaders Are Poor Communicators | Leadership, Technology and Learning | Scoop.it
If you know a bad leader, chances are he or she is also a poor communicator. Here are the reasons why our leaders don't improve in communications -- even though we all know it's a critical part of the role.

Oh dear... as a leader you have to be a great story teller and motivator and that goes nowhere without communications.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 14, 10:27 AM

(From the Article)  Leaders can find it simpler to avoid communicating, at least until they have everything figured out. So they retrench and put off connecting on key issues, which can quickly get out regardless as rumors. Or they rely on email or other written communications that, while better than nothing, can leave employees with more questions than answers.


Leaders, like all of us, want to do the activities that they feel good and successful at doing. Communications can be difficult to get right, and though important, all too easy to avoid – especially when you get to call the shots.

This debate needs to be held in every staffroom in the country, over and over again - because one allows us to carry on as we always have, and the other requires us to tip our thinking about pedagogy on its head.  What do you think?

How BYOD Programs Can Fuel Inquiry Learning

How BYOD Programs Can Fuel Inquiry Learning | Leadership, Technology and Learning | Scoop.it
The opportunity to extend access to technology in the classroom and at home is enticing, but school districts can get hung up on important details like providing a strong network, making sure each child has a device, and questions about around distraction. Of course, no one answer will work for all teachers or students, but one guiding principle that's shown to work is for schools to focus on how mobile technology will help shift instruction to be more collaborative, learner-driven and inquiry-based.

The approach used by Dave Brailsford and Team Sky is one strategy for managing complexity. Instead of focusing on the whole, complex problem, they looked for marginal improvements in many areas. 


The aggregate of these small changes created a significant performance improvement.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Leadership, Technology and Learning | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.
