Fascinating question.

Teni Gharibian's curator insight, October 29, 2013 12:56 AM

I definitely agree that managers may ask employees to complete certain tasks and put a lot of pressure on them to do so. Sometimes they won't care how it is done as long as they are successful and manage to get it done. I also agree that employees will feel pressured to do a good job and make unethical decisions such as doing something illegal in order to get the job done.

University of San Francisco's curator insight, August 1, 2013 1:34 PM

USFCA professor Ruth A. Starkman writes on holistic admissions and the questions raised about who gets selected, how and why.


"Why was he not top-ranked by the 'world’s premier public university,' as Berkeley calls itself? Perhaps others had perfect grades and scores? They did indeed. Were they ranked higher? Not necessarily. What kind of student was ranked higher? Every case is different. ...It’s an extreme version of the American non-conversation about race."

The Rise of the New Groupthink

The Rise of the New Groupthink | Management of Organizations | Scoop.it
Collaboration is in. But it may not be conducive to creativity.
Andrea Mozqueda's insight:

This is an excellent article that portrays the New Groupthink idea. It never caught my attention that our society now wants us to use collaboration for ideas instead of individualistic ideas. I consider myself as an introvert and I like how this article states how it can be better off to have your own perspective. Awesome article to read before the exam on Tuesday!

Defining and Promoting Teamwork in the Classroom | Faculty Focus

Defining and Promoting Teamwork in the Classroom | Faculty Focus | Management of Organizations | Scoop.it

Group work and teamwork. In college courses the terms refer to students working together, often on an assignment or an activity. Group work is the more neutral term, whereas teamwork implies something about how the students are working together. And although teamwork is easy to identify when we see it on a playing field or court, what does teamwork look like in a college classroom?


Via Faculty Focus
Andrea Mozqueda's insight:

In this article, I like how the writer gives an exact definition of a team leader. Some students don't know what a leader's responsibilities are and that is why the group can suffer.

Seth Godin on the Difference Between Leadership and Management

Seth Godin on the Difference Between Leadership and Management | Management of Organizations | Scoop.it
Bestselling author Seth Godin says that “Management and leadership are totally different things. You think you are being a leader, but you are probably being a manager.” I agree.
Andrea Mozqueda's insight:

I like to watch Seth Godin's TED video's and I particularly thought this one had an interesting perspective. In a simple way "Leadership is not knowing whats going to happen tomorrow, just knowing its going to take you where you want to go." I think leadership is a role that can never be paid with money only inspiration.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 11, 2013 12:16 PM

Random thoughts may gain second place when your thought process is already focused and fluent. However, they should not be ignored but rather noted down. You can always come back to them at a later time, you don’t have to force them into your projects. At a later time when you develop other projects they can be gold and gain a primary place in your outline.

How teachers and students are adjusting to the digital classroom - The Globe and Mail

How teachers and students are adjusting to the digital classroom - The Globe and Mail | Management of Organizations | Scoop.it

"The kindergarten student, a shy, Mandarin-speaking five-year-old immigrant in the tiny community of Sangudo, Alta., had barely spoken a word during the first three months of class. So her teacher was surprised one day last year when the girl struck up a conversation. The subject of their animated discussion? An image on the screen of an iPad."


Via John Evans
Andrea Mozqueda's insight:

This was a surpise! In the beginning of my college experience, I use to think that professors were intimitated by technology because the "older generation" does not understand how helpful it is to the "younger generation".

Mary Ramos's curator insight, August 29, 2013 6:54 PM

It's quite amazing how technology can do things like this, especially on kids like this one who was intimidated in an American classroom not only because of being an immigrant but because she couldn't understand or communicate. However technology allowed her to be involved by this animated discussion on an iPad.

Tablets are wonderful to meet individual learning needs! How does one keep the students from browsing away from teacher-selected lesson resources? Just wondering if teachers can control divergent browsing with some kind of synchronizing software.
