5 Simple Steps to Create a New Habit that Sticks | Learning and education | Scoop.it
Lots of buzz these days about habits, creating habits. Some suggest that forming habits is more important than setting goals. Why? Because your daily habits determine your long-term results, regardless of your intentions. That makes sense, right? //...

Study Reveals 4 Leadership Trends In Dealing With Complexity | Learning and education | Scoop.it
No longer is it enough to rely upon the leadership and managerial principles instilled upon you after initially arriving at your position years ago. Technology has changed, which means how you go about communicating and inspiring others has changed, as well.

Technology changes are NOT going to slow down so we must adapt leadership styles to incorporate the changes and maintain value structures that sustain the organization.

5 Brain Myths That Won't Go Away, Getting Facts in 2014

5 Brain Myths That Won't Go Away, Getting Facts in 2014 | Learning and education | Scoop.it

Scientists are not only far from a comprehensive explanation of how the brain works, they can't even agree on the best way to study it. So it's not surprising that myths and misinformation continue to persist —spurred on, in part, by pop culture. But why do we continue to buy into these falsehoods?.

Myth: You are either right- or left-brained dominant.

    

"In reality, we are all whole-brain users." said Shelton. "But this myth helps people define their differences, similar to calling someone male or female. So if you define yourself as right-brained, it immediately connects you with a set of predetermined qualities."

     

Other debunked myths in this useful piece:

   

Myth: You only use 10 percent of your brain.

Myth: Alcohol kills brain cells.

Myth: Brain damage is permanent.

Myth: Your IQ is a fixed number.

Brain sapping beliefs persist and drain productivity and performance in business and in overall learning.  Check the job descriptions in your business for words like "must be able to multi-task."  

Check manufacturing employee schedules for overloaded work-days such 12 hour days 7 days a week.  It's happening in businesses making record profits and NOT hiring temp staff to even out the work load.

At least this good article brings us up to date on brain science.  There is a long way to go.   ~  Deb

How Power Corrupts the Mind

How Power Corrupts the Mind | Learning and education | Scoop.it

While at Columbia University, Andy J. Yap set up a simple experiment. After manipulating his subjects into powerful or weak states (in the lab, psychologists are the most powerful ones of all), Yap asked them to guess the height and weight of others both in person and from photographs.

"When people feel powerful or feel powerless, it influences their perception of others," said Yap, who is now a postdoctoral researcher at MIT.  According to their understanding, we judge the power of others relative to our own: When we feel powerful, others appear less so --and powerlessness and smallness often go together in our minds.

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation | Learning and education | Scoop.it

For students who struggle with output, the option now exists to record ideas directly "onto a page." Similarly, teachers can leave audio feedback for students who benefit from hearing input multiple times. With the built-in camera, students can quickly snap pictures of class notes on a board, or record a quick video of teacher instruction. Leveraging just these few features has the potential to personalize learning and differentiate instruction where it might otherwise be impossible.

We have a long way to go to understand best practices for iPads, to move it from a play thing to integrated into creative pedagogy. However, "The Longest Journey begins with the First Step" and that is getting into the hands or teachers and learners.

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, April 5, 2015 3:56 PM

One step I have noticed (that is too often forgotten) is the need to define clearly the change scope : what changes, what is the desired future state and what are all the elements that need to change. Clarity and top leadership alignment on the change objectives is critical. Also, the leader's role is to ensure that the changes will be measured - the change team should make sure this is transferred into the operational metrics. Often, if the change gets off track, the targets were not clear for all - or some key people were just being measured (and recognized) for performing well according to the past processes and standards. 

Easier said than done.

Ian Berry's curator insight, April 5, 2015 7:40 PM

This article has some good insights. The trouble is the premise Change management is an oxymoron. It can't be managed. We lead change and manage the things around it. Like people management also an oxymoron we need to bite the bullet and drop change management as a concept all together.

Atlas of Knowledge: Anyone Can Map | Learning and education | Scoop.it

In an age of information overload, the ability to make sense of vast amounts of data and to render insightful visualizations is as important as the ability to read and write. The Atlas of Knowledge explains and exemplifies the power of visualizations not only to help locate us in physical space but also to help us understand the extent and structure of our collective knowledge, to identify bursts of activity, pathways of ideas, and borders that beg to be crossed.
