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.

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.

Big Data really is and has meant is a revolutionary approach to marketing. It is our behavior online that helps brands and organizations learn about us in ways that they can contextualize and apply to their marketing strategies, and from the time that this became so eerily apparent, marketers have been seeking out ways to exploit it.
