5 Simple Ways To Inspire Innovation In Learning

5 Simple Ways To Inspire Innovation In Learning | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

How can we make our classrooms more engaging, creating "spaces that help students connect, get inspired, and achieve deeper learning and better results."

This post provides five simple ideas. Each is followed with short descriptions. Three are listed below:

* Try out new teaching techniques, don't just read about them.

* Try out technology tools that allow you to work side by side with your students rather than positioned next to the board.

* Explore new learning opportunities by accessing a web portal and connecting with another classroom studying the same topic.

50 Great Content Curators - Ana Cristina Pratas via @CrowdFunde | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Ana Cristina Pratas
My friend @Ana Cristina Pratas is our 2nd "Great Content Curator" to be profiled on CrowdFunde. Ana Cristina's joyful curation always lifts my spirits while teaching ideas and connections hard to imagine without her.

Ana Cristina is leading the charge of a new tribe of educators who understand the "deep learning" possible from content curation (see This Is Your Brian On Content Curation http://sco.lt/6NqXKr ). Ana was the 2nd curator to crest 1M views on Scoop.it, but numbers don't tell the whole story.

Every interaction I have with Ana Cristina I learn something, feel inspired and want to CREATE SOMETHING (lol). She is an inspiring leader, a great educator and a content curation treasure.

Teaching Students to Fail

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, April 13, 12:22 PM

The article discusses failures and how students can learn resilience and optimism. Three dimensions:

 

1) Teachers should pay attention to character education (non-cognitive skills). Optimism can be learned, for example by enouraging flexible thinking. In short, input from positive psychology should be implemented.

 

2) Gamification, if successfully integrated, can produce failure-resilence. 

 

3) Teachers sharing personal stories of failures and joys of overcoming them. Role playing.

Suomalaisessa tiedemaailmassa tunnustetaan talousprofessorin esittämät ongelmat | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Professori Bengt Holmströmin moitteet suomalaiselle yliopistolle otetaan tyynesti vastaan suomalaisessa tiedemaailmassa. Yliopistokoulutus, uusien tuotantoreseptien puute ja pääomaköyhyys olivat Holmströmin mukaan Suomen talouden kolme "solmua." Yhdysvaltalaisen huippuyliopiston MIT:n kansantaloustieteen professori kutsui suomalaisia opiskelijoita sunnuntaina julkaistussa HS:n haastattelussa "ylikoulutetuiksi alisuoriutujiksi".

Suomen Akatemian tutkimuksen ylijohtaja Marja Makarow allekirjoittaa Holmströmin moitteet. Makarow on aiemmin toiminut Helsingin yliopiston tutkimuksesta vastaavana rehtorina ja Aalto-yliopiston hallituksessa.

"Hänen analyysinsa osuu täydellisesti naulan kantaan. Meidän yliopistoista ei tule ulos sellaisella kapasiteetilla varustettua porukkaa kuin mihin peruskoulu ja lukio antaisivat edellytyksiä. Meidän yliopistoistamme valmistuu ylikypsää porukkaa", Makarow lataa.

What do rap shows, barbershop banter and Sunday services have in common? As Christopher Emdin says, they all hold the secret magic to enthrall and teach at the same time — and it’s a skill we often don't teach to educators. The science advocate (and cofounder of Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S. with the GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan) offers a vision to make the classroom come alive.

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

@Jaana Nyström is a great curator and she just beat me to the punch :). When she shared her EPIC journey of using G+ to move from "nobody" to "somebody" I planned to blog about her amazing journey. The content and message was too good to be trapped in comments.

Read this post CAREFULLY as you may recognize where you are on Jaana's timeline of personal brand development. There are several "inside baseball" tips to pay particular attention to including:

* Don't worry about perfection, start publishing.
* G+ is an AMAZING and vastly under used tool (start there add more social nets later).
* No matter what, keep turning the crank (keep going) since the only sin you and your personal band can't recover from is NOT PLAYING.

Great stuff from an amazing curator. What lessons did you learn from Jaana Nystrom? What similar lessons have you learned as you create a meaningful personal brand?

How Successful People Cure Their Blindspots

Do you know what your leadership blindspots are? It’s a trick question because, by definition, blindspots are areas where you lack awareness of your weakness. Many coaches casually refer to them as “derailers.” A leader continues to advance and climb the career ladder until an unknown weakness suddenly derails her career. Robert [...]

Really enjoyed this article!

 

As an Executive Coach one of the greatest aha moments comes when b.lindspots are revealed.  Leaders will say things like "this is the first time I have ever heard this, or I have never been told this by anyone else." 

 

We all have blindspots, and as soon as we uncover some old ones new ones will certainly surface.

 

Enjoy the article.

 

Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!
