The Future Of Learning Management Systems

The Future Of Learning Management Systems | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it
New technology has impacted few things as it has the ways we send and receive information, and subsequently, the ways in which we learn, and pass that knowledge on to others. In education and training, things are not quite as they were even a decade ago. In another decade, they will be unrecognizable from how they are right now.

[PDF] What makes a School a Learning Organization

[PDF] What makes a School a Learning Organization | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it

What are the characteristics of a school as learning organisation? This paper should be seen as an attempt to work towards a common understanding of the school as learning organisation concept that is both solidly founded in the literature and is recognisable to all parties involved, i.e. educators, policy makers, parents and others alike. The paper provides an in-depth analysis of the learning organisation literature in general, and within a school context. It identifies and operationalises the characteristics of the school as learning organisation in an integrated model that consists of seven overarching ‘action-oriented’ dimensions: 1) developing and sharing a vision centred on the learning of all students; 2) creating and supporting continuous learning opportunities for all staff; 3) promoting team learning and collaboration among staff; 4) establishing a culture of inquiry, innovation and exploration; 5) establishing embedded systems for collecting and exchanging knowledge and learning; 6) learning with and from the external environment and larger learning system; and 7) modelling and growing learning leadership. The dimensions and underlying key characteristics are intended to provide practical guidance on how schools can transform themselves into a learning organisation and ultimately enhance student outcomes.

If you can’t see where you’re going, getting lost is easy.  In previous blog posts, I’ve explored how the values of trust and respect, forming the basic building blocks of a successful organization, can be cultivated.  There is also a third key value that differentiates a successful company from an average one.  How to be atransparent leader.

Trust, respect, and transparency forms a trilogy of core values needed to build successful teams. This post analyses why being a transparent leader is important and provides practical ways on how to improve transparency in your organization.

Small Cybersecurity Steps To Take Today.  NIST

There’s no cybersecurity silver bullet. Be risk-based. Pick low hanging fruit. We’ve all heard lots of clichés about what it means to—here are some more—be cyber aware, keep a clean machine, even Stop.Think.Connect. The bottom line is that protecting online resources and information is difficult, it’s new and it’s rapidly changing. Compared with other science and engineering disciplines, getting things done digitally is in its infancy. Relative to how long we’ve been building things like finely crafted bridges (think Roman aqueducts), protecting networks, computers and mobile devices is a brand new phenomenon. We’re making great progress, but in many ways we’re just starting to understand the environment … all while it keeps changing before our eyes.

Movers shakers & policy makers - Carol Dweck, author, professor of psychology | #GrowthMindset #ModernEDU

Movers shakers & policy makers - Carol Dweck, author, professor of psychology | #GrowthMindset #ModernEDU | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it
What would you say are a few of the biggest myths about growth mindset?

OK, myth No.1 is the myth that it’s all about effort, and that you instil it by praising effort. Effort is one factor that leads to learning. So the ultimate value is growth, progress, learning. And effort is one thing that leads there but there are many other things – strategies, using resources, getting advice, guidance and mentorship, and when people leave that out and just praise effort, it’s not transmitting a growth mindset. Adults have nagged children for centuries to try harder. That’s not a growth mindset, it’s an adult nagging a child to try harder!

Also, we find that when teachers think it’s just about effort and praising effort they may praise effort that isn’t even there, or that’s not effective. So if a child tries hard at something and you say ‘great job, you tried hard’, but they didn’t make progress, they didn’t advance, you’re actually conveying a fixed mindset because you’re saying ‘great effort, I didn’t really expect you to do that, and I don’t expect you to do that, so I’m trying to make you feel good about not doing it’. So we need people to understand that it’s appreciating a variety of process variables that lead to learning.

The second myth is that you can teach students a lesson on growth mindset and put a poster up in the front of the room, and that’s that, that they will have a growth mindset from then on. And we know if the teacher doesn’t then embody a growth mindset, if teachers don’t embody growth mindsets in their teaching practices, in the way that they give feedback when the child is stuck, and the way they present a new unit, in the way that they give opportunities for revision and growth of understanding – if they don’t embody that growth mindset, they are not teaching it. And in fact, if their behaviour contradicts the poster at the front of the room, then maybe they’re doing a disservice.

Poor digital leadership will see universities struggle to attract students

Poor digital leadership will see universities struggle to attract students | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it
A survey of 1,000 16-24 year olds, commissioned by Jisc, found that three quarters (75%) of higher education students surveyed believe that having staff with the appropriate digital skills is an important factor when choosing a university. 99% of students think that technology is becoming increasingly important in education, while 62% believe technology keeps them more engaged.

These student survey results further reinforce the findings of a recent report published by the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) and Jisc titled rebooting learning for the digital age. In the report both parties call on university leaders to embrace new technology to meet the challenges faced by the higher education sector.

Self-Sufficient Learners make Successful Workers

Self-Sufficient Learners make Successful Workers | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it
It's easy to see that escalating technical, socioeconomic, geopolitical, and demographic changes are altering how we work and the nature of jobs. Many call these changes the Fourth Industrial Revolution. During previous industrial revolutions, it took decades for people to develop new skills to meet demand. But change at such a rapid rate forces industries, companies, and workers to either adapt (quickly) or fail. Many newspapers and bookstores are gone. New retail chains are going under each week. It isn't easy to succeed when change is this rapid.

Because of these changes, job skills are shifting. We're seeing jobs emerge that didn't exist 10 years ago (for example, SEO specialist, app developer, and information security analyst), and jobs that have existed are swapping skills to adapt to changes in their organizations and industry. Auto mechanics have been working with the computer parts in automobiles for a while now, but these parts are becoming increasingly complex. Warehouse staff work with automation and use computers to control the machines. Medical and legal staff use increasingly complex computerized systems.

How do people adapt to a rapidly changing workplace and quickly changing job skill needs? They learn to learn better and faster. Metacognitive strategies are among the methods used to help people understand and regulate their learning.

The evolving role of the teacher

The evolving role of the teacher | Leadership Style & Teaching Methodology | Scoop.it

Most educators in our schools and district offices have gone through their own education without the access and opportunities that exist today. To meet the needs of the learners in our classrooms today and align school with the world we live in, there is a need to embrace new mindsets about learning, along with new tools and resources available to make these shifts across diverse classrooms. As I visit schools I see the extremes that exist from classroom to classroom.

 

 In an effort to “transform learning and teaching”,  I often hear people question if teachers are willing to embrace technology, but I think the better question is are we willing to change our expectations for how and what students learn?   If we only focus on integrating technology rather than creating powerful learning experiences that align with the type of students we want to develop, we will continue to perpetuate the same norms in education with more expensive tools.

As one person from Africa told me, when they are in North America, they find it difficult not to get caught up in the rush of life.
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 21, 4:08 PM
What if we focused on long-term relationships and sustainability? This is about Ubuntu and unifying leadership. Consider the recent American elections. It was about dividing and remains so, rather than being about unifying. The closet we come to this is servant-leadership and we avoid it, because it is hard work.
