Teacher leadership

Teacher leadership | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Teachers are leaders. There's no doubt that when we stand in front of a group of kids, regardless of their age, we are on the verge of making an impact, influencing them and guiding them through, sometimes, unexplored trails.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 19, 8:10 PM

I love the neo-liberal vocabulary i.e. you can bring it down to the education industry. It is important to note that education is not the same as School and is not an industry. The words which form education, educare and educere, are two forms of leading. Pedagogy is leading. It makes sense that teaching is leading. It is not managing which is what people outside classrooms think it is sometimes.

Jatkuvan säästämisen, höyläämisen ja leikkaamisen ohella löytyy onneksi esimerkkejä siitäkin, että toimintaa kehitetään ja haetaan innovatiivisia tapoja kehittää toimintaa sujuvammaksi.

Tässä haetaan aika jännällä tavalla rajanvetoa kirjaston ja julkisten palvelujen välillä, vaikkakin kirjasto on tässä vain mahdollistaja.

Why Paris doesn't want a Scottish Yes

Why Paris doesn't want a Scottish Yes | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"Nothing unites different nations quite like mutual enemies. But the 'Auld Alliance' between Scotland and France - both historic rivals of England - doesn't mean that the French government favours Scottish independence. Far from it."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 18, 11:50 AM

Historically, France has supported greater autonomy or independence as a way to limit English political power and influence.  However in the era of the E.U. and greater regional integration, modern geopolitics makes this old alliance untenable as some in Scotland are seeking independence from the United Kingdom.

Kevin Barker's curator insight, August 19, 8:59 AM

I was surprised to listen to the affection that Scotland and France have towards each other but I wasn't surprised to hear France's concerns about the further division of countries within the EU.  What is it about the independence of Scotland that causes the French government to be concerned?

Digitaalisten oppimateriaalien tuotantokoulutus on tarkoitettu niille opettajille, jotka eivät etunojassa ryntää ensin tekemään, vaan haluavat ensin ymmärtää kokonaisuuden ja ottaa uutta asiaan teoreettisemmin haltuun.
Homman oppii vain tekemällä, mutta ihmiset ovat erilaisia – opettajatkin…
Tämä koulutus sopii toki myös niille, jotka materiaaleja tuottavat, mm. tekijänoikeusasiat ja yhteistuotannon käytännöt herättänevät kysymyksiä.

The 15 Biggest Body Language Mistakes To Watch Out For

The 15 Biggest Body Language Mistakes To Watch Out For | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Until we get to know someone, our brain relies on snap judgements to try to categorize the person, predict what they will do, and anticipate how we should react. You may have heard that you only have a few seconds to make a first impression, but the truth is, your brain has made up its mind (so to speak) about a person within milliseconds of meeting them.

(From the article): If you discover you have a particular problem with one or two of the gestures on the list, practice by yourself with a mirror or with a friend who can remind you every time you do it, until you become aware of the bad habit yourself.

 

Can you recall a time someone’s body language made you uncomfortable? Are there any other body language blunders you would add? I’d love to hear your anecdotes and ideas in the comments below.

Be ready for the Learning Space of the future

Be ready for the Learning Space of the future | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

While many of us are aware of how new technology is changing the way we engage within the learning space, far too few in our industry are paying attention to the changing expectations of the learners moving into these spaces. While attending the New Media Consortium (NMC) Summer 2014 [ed-tech] conference in Portland, Oregon recently, I saw what our future learners—those currently in K-12 and higher education—are encountering.


It’s fascinating. It’s creative. That space is producing magnificent results through collaboration and the use of a variety of learning technology and learning models. And these advances are going to leave our community dead in the water if we don’t pay attention to what those learners are doing—and will expect from us as they continue moving into our learning spaces over the next 10 to 15 years.
