To understand what is going on in Finland, its perhaps important to start not with a snapshot of their test scores and existing education structures but with a historical perspective. (@saharakaminsk @rweingarten Some would, some wouldn't.

Kumpi puhuu enemmän, esimies vai alainen? | Front Kilta

Joukkoista väkesi – Työpaikkasi on täynnä tietoa. Hyödynnä se! Anna jokaiselle ääni ja luo foorumit ja kanavat äänten kuulumiselle. Jokainen ihminen on palkattu työpaikallesi syystä. Jokainen tietää ja osaa enemmän, kuin vielä tänään pystyy antamaan. Jokainen haluaa onnistua yhtä kovasti kuin sinäkin haluat hänen onnistuvan. Joukkoistamisen tulos on luovuus ja kukoistus.

Transforming the Lecture Space

Transforming the Lecture Space | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Imagine yourself sitting in a large lecture hall--which can range between 300 to 500 students--and while you are trying your best to digest what your instructor is saying, your mind is on everything else except what the teacher is saying. Who can blame you? Within an arm’s reach, you have instant access to news, entertainment, and virtually anyone around the world because of that handy device they call a smartphone. If this is resonating with most of you, that’s because this situation is all too familiar for most anyone who has attended college.

 

 

 

We have many distractions in life, and those distractions do not simply go away when we step into the classroom.

 

 

 

As of January 2014, 98 percent of 18 to 29-year-old Americans own a cell phone, and 58 percent of all adults own a smartphone, according to the Pew Research Internet Project. We have many distractions in life, and those distractions do not simply go away when we step into the classroom. I believe that the tendency to be distracted in the classroom can be at least partially blamed on the disengaging traditional lecture environment.

Robert Richman's curator insight, April 3, 6:15 PM

Great graphics to explain dynamic governance. Though I believe his statement is misleading that "everyone has an equal voice. CEO has no greater voice than anyone else." This presumes everyone feels truly safe to state their point of view, and that is not always the case. Culture matters here. 

Hoang-Anh Phan's curator insight, October 13, 7:32 AM

I am always delighted to find like minded people ! "Holacracy [...] shares the same core principles that agile methodologies are based on".
