What is Professional Learning?

What is Professional Learning? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Professional Learning
Whereas past professional development programs have often relied on seminars and lectures, the intent of professional learning is to make educators active participants in their career development. Professional learning is also a more collaborative experience, allowing educators to learn from one another and work together to create a more cohesive school community. In this way, professional learning helps develop school systems in which teachers can constantly develop strategies for increasing student achievement. Essentially, professional learning reflects many of the practices being implemented in blended classrooms—the same learning strategies that work for students can work for educators.

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.

There is no doubt that social media provide excellent ways to communicate with parents, but they are not the only ways. It is one way that includes face-to-face conversations. It would be interesting to find out what Derrida might conclude in using his concept differance which was not a correctly spelled word.

"The Future of Employment study makes clear that what matters most today is what you can do with what you know, rather than how much you know."
- Dr. Tony Wagner

 

We need to create schools that coach students for skill and will, in addition to teaching content. If we don't make this transition quickly, a growing number of our youth will be unemployable at the same time that employers complain that they cannot find new hires who have the skills they need. - Dr. Tony Wagner

There is no doubt the type of jobs available today and in the future are different and will be different than they have been. Having said this, children learn in concrete ways and not in abstract ways based on distant objectives. That is an adult way of doing things in education.

Google Glass spyware can use users as surveillance drones

 

Security researchers have created prototype Google Glass spyware that is capable of snooping on everything the user is looking at without tipping off victims that anything is amiss.

 

Mike Lady and Kim Paterson – graduate researchers at California Polytechnic San Luis Obispo – created an app that takes a picture every 10 seconds a Glass display is active – before uploading the information to a remote server.

 

This all happens in the background without giving the wearer any indication that images from the hi-tech specs are being "live-streamed".


The scary thing for us is that while it’s a policy that you can’t turn off the display when you use the camera, there’s nothing that actually prevents you from doing it,” Paterson told Forbes.

Although it’s almost certain we will never all agree to a singular list of skills, strategies, and competencies leaders must embody for success now and in the future, we do know what effectively operating and leading in a fluid, dynamic and every changing 21st Century world requires:

 

 

The ability to see the challenge and the solution, from every angleThe ability know what questions to ask and when to ask themThe ability to communicate one’s vision passionately and persuasivelyThe ability to connect with others and create an enduring relationshipThe ability to understand your strengths and the discipline to improve your weaknessesThe ability to dream, set audacious goals, and believe they can be accomplishedThe ability to stand out, stand up, and stand beside and knowing when each is requiredThe ability to lead, serve and honor others.
