How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly | Leading by Example | Scoop.it

The problem is that Wikipedia in the classroom has gotten a bad reputation in the K-12 world, undeservedly so I think. I would suggest that Wikipedia can be used for a multitude of educational purposes at a wide variety of grade levels. Too many teachers are still afraid to use it in class, so I’m here to right that wrong and show our educators how they can responsibly integrate Wikipedia into their lessons.

(From the article): So, if you want to be successful throughout your life, cultivate the mind and heart of a learner. One simple way to do that: every day, ask ‘four-year-old’ questions, like, How does that work? Why shouldn’t we/I do that? What does that mean? What would happen if I/we did this?

Many leaders just want to tell their people the goal, and then expect them to just go out and create amazing success without any guidance, coaching, managing, or ...leading. Leadership is all about the people one leads.

(From the article): Personal leadership is all about relationships with those you lead. Simply learning the names of one’s team-members is not sufficient to building a strong team of committed workers, although it s start.  By learning their values, skills and dreams, you learn how they see themselves within the organizational structure.  Instead of simply evaluating their work, seek opportunities for them to provide feedback on the organization.  Take care to listen, and see if you can incorporate their ideas.

Self-Improvement Strategies For Becoming A More Authentic Leader

(From the article): The word “authenticity” comes from the Greek root authentikos, meaning "original, genuine, principal." Genuine leaders are not just the usual suspects we conjure up--the business chieftains, historic figures, and mega technology innovators. They are all around us, I believe. Each one of us is born to make an authentic contribution. Truly authentic leaders lead with their soul. Along with fearless passion and courage, they possess relentless mental discipline.

Leadership is fluid and is never outdated. What I am not seeing is the shift from management to leadership. It certainly is not happening where I work and live. The trust question and answer is revealing. He does not use the word narcissism, but it is in evidence and growing. What will that do for the next generation?

Love the curator insights (Amy & donhornsby) "I think this is the greatest sentence ever written on leadership: “The task of a leader is not to put greatness into people, but to draw it out, because the greatness is there already.” That’s what a true leader thinks. We have a responsibility to the world to play a leading part in growing and developing good leaders and leaders for good." and (From the article): Half the world’s population is 25 years or under, so we have an immense job of sowing the seeds for the next generation of leaders.-

Tom Hood's curator insight, February 10, 2013 5:16 AM

In our five years working with the CPA Profession's best and brightest young leaders (AICPA, MACPA, UACPA, LSCPA Leadership Academies), I worry that many of our current leaders are not taking the responsibility to develop new leaders fast enough. Yet when you get these young leaders in a room, it is easy to pull their greatness out of them.


What can we do to develop more leaders fast enough as two baby boomers will retire for every Gen-Xer available to replace them?


Love the curator insights:

(From the article): You currently may avoid these conversations because they can be difficult, time-consuming, and uncomfortable--especially if not handled properly.  Hold these conversations--nothing is more urgent.   If you do not hold them, the actions you and your people take will be based on differing assumptions and will deliver less than optimum results.

Why Do Great Ideas Take So Long to Spread?

Why Do Great Ideas Take So Long to Spread? | Leading by Example | Scoop.it
Resistance and stubbornness from the old guard isn't slowing things down.

 

Just because a new fact or idea seems right, doesn't mean it will spread like wildfire. Evolution, hand washing in hospitals, the inevitability that personal computers were the future of technology — none of these ideas were accepted immediately, even though they seem obvious today. Change takes time. But why? 

The short answer is we're intellectually stubborn. We don't always weigh all the evidence before we make a decision, and this is especially true if a change of opinion requires a wholesale overhaul of our worldview. Usually, we're defensive in the face of change, spouting alternative theories and contradictory data. Although this type of resistance can help keep everyone honest, it can also produce very bad effects.

 

Just take Ignaz Semmelweis — a physician who recommended doctors clean their hands prior to delivering babies — who was ignored and essentially driven mad by his colleagues' refusal to accept the truth. But eventually, in the face of overwhelming evidence, the majority will generally accept the new theory, before their recalcitrance becomes too counterproductive.

(From the article): The reason why most of us don’t accomplish more is because we set our goals inside our mental barriers, where it’s safe. (That’s why it’s called “the comfort zone.”)

 

But if you want to get unstuck and start getting traction again, you have to set your goals on the other side of the barrier. You don’t have to get crazy, but you do have to stretch yourself and push past the invisible barrier in your head.

 

This is the secret to achieving break-through results.

3 Things Every Great Leader Gets Wrong

3 Things Every Great Leader Gets Wrong | Leading by Example | Scoop.it
Think you're a great leader? Make sure you aren't guilty of one of these three reality-distorting traits.

 

Every great leader possesses a degree of what Walter Isaacson (in his biography of Steve Jobs) describes as "an ability to distort reality."

 

What Isaacson meant is that Jobs forced his will on Apple, often pushing people to create things they never thought possible--a powerful asset in any leader.

 

But that reality distortion effect works both ways. It also means that every leader, to a greater or lesser degree, distorts the reality around themselves, leading to tensions, inconsistency, and bad decisions.

 

There are two reasons why leaders who live in a bubble become so dangerous to themselves and those they lead.
