The Myth Of Digital Citizenship And Why We Need To Teach It Anyway | EdReach

The Myth Of Digital Citizenship And Why We Need To Teach It Anyway | EdReach | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it
At one time in the not so distant past there were no cell phones. And then everything changed at a rate faster than the speed of amending a student handbook. I can distinctly remember the first time one of my 8th grade students brought a cell phone to school. It really wasn’t that big of a deal, more of a novelty really. I mean one student with a cell phone had next to no bearing on our day to day school operations. But then a second student brought a cell phone.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 23, 2014 2:51 PM

When it comes to leading teams and organization’s in today’s fast-changing environment, it can be tempting to focus our attention on those employees who share our point of view; whose opinions and insights help to solidify and support our perspective of what’s important and what needs to be done. It’s also easy to try and limit what information we allow our employees to have access to as a way to exert control and authority over those we’re meant to serve.

 

And yet, if we are to truly tap into the great value of teams – of benefiting from the diversity of experiences, insights and outlooks – we need to demonstrate our commitment to ensuring that everyone in our team or organization has the opportunity to be heard; that we share what we know so that our employees will be willing to share their insights and experiences to help us better identify the challenges and opportunities we’ll face going forward.
