The capital has a new festival | Luxembourg | Luxembourg-City | Europe | Social | Luxembourg (Europe) | Scoop.it
As the festival season draws closer, the Luxembourg City Tourist Office has launched 'Enjoy Luxembourg', a new festival for residents as well as for visitors of the capital, young and old. Three days filled with activities, exhibitions and music await!


On the Place d'Armes and the Place Guillaume II the action is going to take place: concerts, artistic workshops and musicals for kids, puppet theatre and an interactive 3D projection are going to keep you entertained.

The main innovation of this festival is the multidisciplinary approach: the opening towards different artistic forms, as well as one part of the programme in which children and families are invited to take an active part.

STATEC: 60 Percent of Luxembourg Residents on Social Media | ICT | eLeadership | eSkills

STATEC: 60 Percent of Luxembourg Residents on Social Media | ICT | eLeadership | eSkills | Luxembourg (Europe) | Scoop.it

A recent report released by STATEC, the National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies, on ICT in households and among individuals, has shown that the use of social media and the use of cloud technology, is on the rise– 60% of Luxembourg residents aged 16 to 74 used social media networks in 2014.


Luxembourg ranked third of the twenty-eight countries in the EU, in cloud technology use, with 37% of its residents aged between 16 and 74, using the online shared storage platform.  50% of those were young people, to 26% of 55 to 74-year olds.


A number of recurring themes were also revealed in the study. In 2014, 96% of households disposed of an internet connection - up six percentage points from 2010 and twenty-six from 2006 – making Luxembourg the European leader in that particular category. The computer remained the number one source of internet access (87%), with the smartphone responsible for 70%.

Leadership Develops When You Escape Your Comfort Zone

Leadership Develops When You Escape Your Comfort Zone | Luxembourg (Europe) | Scoop.it

Successful leaders know that they must get out of their comfort zone to succeed. Great leaders from history are those who have spent a large amount of their time outside their comfort zone.

.

Leaders who take risks and step into their learning zone are those that succeed. It’s only when you can give up what’s safe and familiar that you create opportunities and develop new capabilities. As you do, you expand your influence and gain the skills required to take on bigger and bigger challenges.

.

In this sense, leaders are self-made and not born, they are developed, not promoted. Leadership is a learned skill that is developed as you step out of your comfort zone.

Lay Leng Low's curator insight, May 12, 11:10 PM

Leadership is a learned skill and can be developed.  All you need is a growth mindset and an willingness to push boundaries, be a life-long learner, so that real learning and grown can take place. 

Marlena Gross-Taylor's curator insight, May 17, 10:24 AM

To be a fearless, 360 leader you have to step outside of your comfort zone. The experience provides the opportunity for growth! #leadupchat #edchat #mschat 

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 17, 11:54 AM

Vygotsky talked of the Zone of Proximal Development, and this article is in line with that foundational philosophy about learning.  When we think about improving schools, both of Vygotsky and this article apply.  We need leaders, teachers, and students operating outside their comfort zone, taking risks, setting goals, and learning.  There is a danger in struggling schools to push too hard and move buying the productive zone for learning.  This article speaks well to that aspect of learning.  With good intentions, leaders at building, district, and state level often push a school and omits staff beyond the productive learning zone into the danger zone.  This is done through programs, initiatives, and monitoring often with the goal of providing support, but with the result of overwhelming the school and staff.
