Tietokirjailija Katleena Kortesuon mukaan vanhoilla hyvillä käytöstavoilla voi brändätä itsensä kasvokkain pienelle joukolle kerrallaan, mutta sosiaalisessa mediassa sen voi tehdä tuhansille.

Suurin osa lukioista vaatii tai suosittelee omaa kannettavaa – katso kuntasi lukion tilanne

Suurin osa lukioista vaatii tai suosittelee omaa kannettavaa – katso kuntasi lukion tilanne | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Suurin osa lukioista suosittelee tai jopa vaatii opiskelijoitaan hankkimaan oman kannettavan tietokoneen opintoja varten.
Yle Uutiset kysyi asiaa lähes kolmelta sadalta lukiolta. Osassa lukioista kaikille opiskelijoille kustannetaan koneet omiksi, kun taas suurin osa lukiolaisista joutuu maksamaan sen omasta rahapussista. Osa ylioppilaskirjoituksista tehdään sähköisesti jo kahden vuoden päästä.

Why Your Employees Need to be Both Engaged AND Aligned

Why Your Employees Need to be Both Engaged AND Aligned | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

I appreciate a good analogy, especially when it comes to terms that can be defined in multiple ways. Employee engagement and alignment are a good example. Here’s a brilliant analogy from a local business journal:

donhornsby's curator insight, August 31, 10:21 AM

(From the article): Employee engagement is essential to an organization’s success, and alignment is arguably even more important. As an example, consider a 400-meter relay race. The winning team carries the baton past the finish line first. The direction of the finish line represents alignment between employees and the organization’s vision and goals. The speed of each runner is akin to engagement. To win, every runner in the team must run fast (i.e. be engaged with the organization) but also run in the direction of the next runner or the finish line (i.e. be aligned).”

(From the article): Leadership takes practice and stems from life experience. One way to become a leader is to learn from professionals who have been there before you.

Leadership is a quality that transcends rank, salary, and title. Leaders come in all shapes, sizes, and ages. No matter where you are in your career journey, the time to start acting the part is now.

"Here is a great ice breaker activity for you if you have a few iPads to use in your classroom.

 

You will need around one iPad per group of 2-6 students. Or, if you only have one iPad, create a trailer as a class.

 

iMovie trailers is a very fun and easy way to create awesome short videos. Your class will probably be able to finish within one to two hours."
