Awesome visual featuring the 7 Signs of Professional Learning

Awesome visual featuring the 7 Signs of Professional Learning | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Here is a useful visual from ASCD featuring 7 signs of professional learning. These are aggregated quips from some authoritative figures in the field of education. This visual is also available for free download from this link.

To be successful in professional development efforts we must plan backward, beginning with the student learning outcomes. ( Thomas R. Guskey,p. 10)Just as surgeons see observations and coaching as vital to improving their craft, so should teachers. ( Emily Dolci Grimm, Trent Kaufman, and Dave Doty, p. 24)We have to remember that teachers are professionals who use their classrooms as innovative laboratories and want to engage in authentic learning. (Kristen Swanson, p. 36)Teachers have a great deal of knowledge about their practice and their students that is incredibly valuable to other teachers. (Rebecca Van Tassell,p.76)When video recording is shared in a way that supports each educator's intrinsic desire to improve, it can be a powerful tool for rapid, significant improvement.  (Jim Knight, p.18)Educators must ensure that professional learning networks are more than a forum for sharing war stories or platform for promoting personal preferences about instruction. (Richard Dufour, p.30)When professional development fails to deliver genuine, face-to-face interactions with other people, educators feel cheated.  (John Settlage and Adam Johnst0n, p.67)

NLafferty's curator insight, July 11, 5:54 AM
Lots of useful references in this presentation by Stephen Downes to follow up and read round. Also Downes helpfully makes the distinction between personal and personalised learning which I think are being used interchangeably in some contexts without individuals realising they are different things.

Silvia Clark's curator insight, May 17, 11:04 AM

Dr. Pririe very nicely explains how the value of a product or service is determined. It is not based on the inputs such as labor, but on demand. As a business we assign value to our products or services depending on our economic costs that will determine the price we want to sell products and services for. However, value is created in the mind of the end consumer. This is how trade takes place in a very simplistic form. If an end consumer values our product or service enough he will trade with us for the amount of money that we ask for. If we can't sell our product or service because there is no demand it has no value.

Content marketing: organization and management | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Where does content marketing belong in the organization and do you need someone to manage it. A high-level overview of tasks and challenges.

 

Depending on the scope, context and ‘content marketing maturity level’ of your organization, you will organize the way you “do” content marketing differently. There will always – at the very least – be some people (internal, external or hybrid) who create content, someone who overviews the “project” (which in the end it is) and involvement of several stakeholders.
